There's nothing I like more than a multi-purpose product. I know I'm giving away the true depths of my laziness by saying that because really, it's not like putting on sunscreen, moisturizer and foundation is the equivalent of running a marathon, but it's still kind of annoying to put on three products when one could do the job. Enter MD Skincare and their All-in-One Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 15. I've never tried any of their products before, but since it's nearing the summer in Los Angeles, which is when I switch from my regular foundation to a tinted moisturizer (also known as "The Months I Sweat a lot and Never Look Good"), I figured I'd give this one a whirl. I'm so glad that I did! One pump comes complete with sunscreen, moisture, and a tint that adds a little color to my face without being heavy or mask-like. It does, however, seem to cover up some of the flaws on my skin, which is a good quality to have in a tinted moisturizer, since a lot of the ones I've tried are so sheer they don't give you any coverage at all.
Here are some details on what you can expect from this product from the MD Skincare website.
- Provides constant hydration, only where necessary
- Helps prevent wrinkles and other sun damage by protecting against both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays
- Protects against skin-aging free radicals
- Tightens skin to give a firmer, smoother look and feel
- Evens skintone with natural-looking, sheer color, eliminating the need for foundation
- Lightweight, absorbs quickly, and leaves a radiant finish
It sounds great, doesn't it? I've been using it for a week now and I'm really loving it - and the extra few minutes I can sleep in in the morning that I would've been fumbling for the other products in my (overly crowded) bathroom. The only downside is that it's $44, so it's definitely a commitment for your wallet. Then again, when I know that a product works and isn't going to wind up in my reject pile, that seems like a small price to pay. Especially when wrinkles are involved!
