I’ve been having a pretty hard time finding a tinted moisturizer dark enough to match my complexion, so I usually just make my own using part moisturizer and part foundation. I was excited to try the Boots Soft & Sheer Tinted Moisturizer in Dark with high hopes that my search for the perfect tinted moisturizer would be over.
The Boots No7 Soft & Sheer Tinted Moisturizer contains SPF 15 to help protect your skin from the sun. It is lightweight, glides on smooth and moisturizes well. The pigmentation is sheer but can be built up for more coverage. If you want to cover any blemishes you will need to use a concealer along with it. It comes in 3 shades fair, medium and dark.
The tinted moisturizer in dark almost matched my skin perfectly but not quite. It is a little too light and to avoid the ashy look I add a small drop of Revlon PhotoReady foundation in Mocha. This makes it a perfect match. I apply a primer first, use concealer to cover any blemishes, apply the moisturizer and set it with a setting powder to control shine as I get oily in my t-zone. With this combination it stays all day as if I was using foundation. I like the results a lot…
The Boots No7 Soft & Sheer Tinted Moisturizer is perfect for those days when you just want to give a slightly polished look to your face or on the weekends when you are just running errands. It retails for $11.99 for 1.69 US Fl. Oz. and can be purchased at Target and Drugstore. A little expensive but a small amount goes a long way and it will last a long time. I highly recommend it if you can find a match for your skin.
