High vs. Low: Tinted Moisturizer


This summer, we’re looking for a multi-use moisturizer. Layering moisturizer and foundation and sunscreen that will just melt off in the sun isn’t our idea of a relaxing day strolling a boardwalk or playing soccer in the backyard. A moisturizer that moonlights as light foundation and sun protection sounds perfect—a high SPF, a tint of color and the ability to cover up blemishes adequately are requirements. Here are two options—choose the one that fits your budget.

Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30, $36.00
This oil-free moisturizer protects skin from the sun and evens skin tone while absorbing oil and providing medium coverage. Plus, the moisturizer smooths skin with amino acids. This moisturizer comes in six shades.

jane Nearly Foundation Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30, $4.99
This oil-free moisturizer, 31 dollars less than Stila’s, triples as a light foundation, moisturizer and protection from the sun. Our fellow consumers at Walgreen’s reviewed it, giving it three and a half out of five stars. This moisturizer comes in three shades: fair, medium and deep.
