Ask the personal beauty consultant…about tinted moisturisers


Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner so perhaps it’s time to swap your full coverage foundation for a tinted moisturiser. Here’s my top tips on how you can dare to bare your skin for summer, says Jarrold personal beauty consultant Paris Cressy. 

There are many benefits when it comes to replacing your base with a tinted moisturiser. Not only does it moisturise and adds a touch of colour to your face, it can also hydrate your skin, protect it from UVA/UVB rays (if you choose one with a good SPF) and its lightweight texture makes it more comfortable to wear when the mercury rises.

Tinted moisturisers are perfect for those who only have a few minutes to get ready in the morning as you can just apply with your fingers and build the product up to the coverage you require. Simple!

Here are my top tints for this summer:

Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20


Paris says: "This amazeballs award-winning multi-tasker gives your skin a healthy look. Its lightweight, moisturising formula adds a soft hint of colour that evens out and enhances your skin without hiding it. With added advanced skin-care benefits, your skin will feel hydrated and fine lines will look softened. Plus with an SPF 20 and vitamins C and E, this product can protect your skin from the damaging effects of the environment.


Clarins  Super Restorative Tinted Cream SPF 20


Paris says: "This super product delivers a veil of tinted moisture that instantly gives you a healthy looking, golden glow. This product is awesome at optically smoothing lines, minimizing shadowy areas and softening facial lines. Plus the UVA/UVB protection SPF 20 protects skin from the elements.
