Proactiv Sheer Tint Moisturizer with SPF 15 Review: A Slightly Fuller Tinted Option

Whenever summer draws near, I am attracted to every tinted moisturizer, or tinted moisturizer-like product, within a roughly 50 mile radius of me. I want them all, they will make me look like I have perfect and luminous skin, and really, they will do so while they provide me with sunscreen, and all in one step! Typically the tinted moisturizers aren’t quite enough coverage for me (there goes that one step thing, I need to add a little foundation), they are often missing the sunscreen, and the moisturizer is too much for my combination skin in warm weather.

Proactiv’s tinted moisturizer is a little bit different from other tinted moisturizers simply because it does have a little more coverage. Instead of a super light coverage, this is a light to light/medium (not quite medium) amount of coverage, which is great! The moisturizer sinks in right away and with a light blending with my fingers this stuff looks flawless. Seriously. I found that it stayed this way all day, and the amount of moisture was just right for me, so I didn’t become an oily mess later on.

This lotion does contain SPF 15, though it was not full broad spectrum coverage. It doesn’t have a sunscreen smell and none of the thick, sticky feeling that some sunscreens have. Instead it has a faint lotion scent (I really can’t describe it any better), and once it has sunken into your skin it has a very lightweight feel.

If there’s a shade that matches you this might be a good spring time update.

    I too gravitate towards tinted moisturisers during the summer months and am always on the lookout for ones with a built in SPF. The recent trend for BB creams has made it easier to find light coverage with added sun protection, but this sounds good for an option which includes slightly more coverage than usual.
