Your tinted moisturizer is probably SPF 20, provides about half the coverage of foundation, and--if you can find the perfect shade--matches your skin tone. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 50 Mineral Tinted Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid ($34) does it one better on all three counts. With a broad-spectrum SPF 50 formula, its Cell-OX Shield technology--a blend of antioxidants and strong sun filters--guarantees ultimate sun protection while titanium dioxide transforms the UV light into heat. And it’s water-resistant, meaning you can sweat and swim for almost an hour before you need to reapply.
As for colour, La Roche-Posay’s universal tint technology matches almost all skin tones, leaving your face positively dewy. The best part is that the formula was specifically built for sensitive skin. Whether you suffer from rosacea, acne, or photosensitivity, the super lightweight liquid blends right in without leaving a greasy finish or causing breakouts. If you do want more coverage, you can layer foundation or concealer on top--the sunscreen’s so light that nothing will feel caked on top. We have a hunch, however, that its built-in glow will do the trick.
