I am on the hunt for a perfect Tinted Moisturizer for Spring and though I’d share what options I am considering. I’ve narrowed the list to 3 brands: Dior, BECCA and Hourglass. Now my only problem is that I can’t check out BECCA or Hourglass myself but since I love everything from the brands that I already have I am ready to risk.
So here are the options I am considering with the official information.
Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 Tube 50ml, £28.50
“A lightweight, tinted moisturizer containing SPF 20 to help prevent sun damage.

Layer with other foundations for a custom blend and radiant finish”
Here are just some of my thoughts about this product and you can decide for yourself if you need this or not:
- As all TM this product gives a pretty sheer coverage so be sure that you use a concealer if you have any problems.
- This product is perfect for hot summer weather because it’s not to heavy.
- If you have quite a few imperfections on your skin I would not recommend you using it because
