Smashbox’s Tinted Moisturizer

Smashbox’s tinted moisturizer is one of the best things I’ve discovered in a long time!

I’m sure I’m super late but it was a recent discovery for me since I’m not into makeup. Actually it’s quite the opposite for me, I avoid makeup like the plague.

Problem is, aside from the composition of my face, I also inherited something else from my mother: adult acne. Couple that with sensitive, combination skin (both dry & oily), and throw in the fact that I scar super easily I’ve got a whole lot going on, on my face.

Still, I’m not willing to sacrifice another 30 minutes of sleep just to add a makeup regimen to my morning routine! With an 8-12-minute shower (depending on how I feel), 4 minutes to get dressed, and at least 22 minutes of my eyes being glued to my computer screen every morning, adding enough time to properly apply a full-face of makeup every morning is out of the question. That alone would double the time it takes me to catapult myself out of bed and get out of the door. No way. No how!

But I needed something. So I asked the best (& admittedly only) makeup artist I know for advice & she suggested the tinted moisturizer by smashbox!

$30?! o_O Yep. It costs about 30 bucks for a little less than two ounces of moisturizer. I was having second thoughts til I remembered a gift card to Macy’s MOMMs had given me. I’m glad I made the purchase. I wear it every day and even though it’s not coverage so it won’t hide my acne scars it does even out my skin, provide enough moisture to last me all day, and best of all my face isn’t oily at the end of the day.

I have no idea how it works…I just know it does. And gift card or no gift card this is something I’ll be keeping in my medicine cabinet for a while. A bonus is that very little goes a very long way!

Enjoy. If you’ve tried it or you use it, let us know! We’d love to hear your experience with it! :O)
