The weather is getting warmer and I’m edging back towards my trusted tinted moisturisers. They’re less effort; unless you really do just slap them on willy-nilly, you’re unlikely to go far wrong. They don’t need a whole lot of blending and they look exceedingly natural. (Said Mr Kipling’s wife.) I’m really impressed with No7′s Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser, it leaves skin looking even and healthy. The shade that I have been using, ‘Fair/Medium’ is absolutely spot-on and the finish is perfect – not too sheeny, but nicely moisturising.
I never use a tinted moisturiser instead of my moisturiser – I moisturise as normal and then wait for ten to fifteen minutes before applying my makeup. I usually use an oil-free moisturiser, or one that has been formulated for combination skin and that way I don’t get moisture overload in the oily areas.
No7′s Tinted Moisturiser is a bit of a dream-boat product, really – it performs well and it also has No7′s Five Star UVA technology, preventing long-term deep-down skin damage and premature signs of aging. It should by all accounts cost more than it does, but I’m very glad that it doesn’t!
