I’m a beauty writer who rarely wears makeup. Yes, you read that right. More specifically, I don’t wear foundation, bronzer, tinted moisturizer, or blush. This mainly stems from a childhood in musical theater where I had to cake on so much pancake base that I decided not to wear anything similar in real life. Plus, I never seem to find the right shades for my almost-translucent fair skin. I’m about to change my tune, though, thanks to a particular firming moisturizer-meets-skin tint on rare sale.

Yes, Perricone MD’s Firming Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 is currently a whopping 40 percent off at Amazon right now. The lightweight face cream is formulated with pigment-filled capsules that release slowly after application to deliver a subtle, glowy tint that leaves skin “healthy [and] natural-looking,” per shoppers. Meanwhile, a host of ingredients and antioxidants work in tandem to hydrate, smooth, and nourish skin. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA, also known as vitamin F) reduces the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, candeia tree extract soothes, and mineral-based SPF 30 protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays.



Since I like to do my due diligence before buying any new skincare products, I dug into the reviews to see what fellow shoppers are saying about this Perricone MD cream. More than 1,000 shoppers have purchased it in the past month, per Amazon, and it’s racked up close to 1,000 five-star ratings. In regards to its tinting capability, multiple reviewers said the moisturizer replaced their foundation altogether. “I wear this instead of foundation or any face makeup everyday and will continue to as long as they make it,” one shopper raved. Others agreed, saying “you don’t even need foundation” because it “truly makes you better-looking,” and that they “no longer use a foundation since the tint provides enough color.”

When it comes to this moisturizer’s multitude of skin-enhancing benefits, reviewers mentioned those, too. Shoppers said it “gives long-lasting hydration,” “absorbs so it’s never greasy,” “covers most age spots,” “subtly blurs” fine lines, and creates a “dewy complexion.”

My biggest question is how I didn’t discover this tinted moisturizer sooner. If you’re as curious as I am, add Perricone MD’s Firming Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 your Amazon cart, and check out other products from the brand on sale, below.
