In the summer I don’t like to wear a lot of make up, especially not foundation and powders. I prefer a light tinted moisturizer with SPF for my daily routine. For years I used Clinique’s City Block sheer oil-free daily face protector with SPF 25 which is very light, evens out the skin tone while protecting from the sun. The I got hooked to Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Tinted Moistrurizer with SPF 15 which I felt hydrated a little more than the City Block (I don’t need oil-free products I believe).
However this summer I have a new favorite: Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating with SPF 20. This moisturizer does not only do what the Kiehl’s tinted moisturizer does, it also adds a bit of shimmering color to get that dewy summer skin that I love. It’s the most expensive out of the three but the amazing consistency and the fact that it seems to last forever makes up for it. Then I just add some bronzing powder and a touch of mascara, some of this lipgloss and I’m good to go!
