Tinted moisturizers: A waste of time


Tinted moisturizers: A waste of time

Has the heat wave hit you yet? This summer's been hot hot HOT, and we'd bet many of you are opting to lighten up your makeup routine with a more sheer look. A tinted moisture is an obvious choice for many people – but the truth is, buying one is absolutely unnecessary.

Here's why: Tinted Moisturizer is just foundation and moisturizer mixed together and filled in a tube. Why waste money on it when you already have those products at home – products you know work well for your skin type and color? You can easily blend them together and make your very own tinted moisturizer in seconds.

Plus – and this is the very best part – when you mix foundation with your own moisturizing broad spectrum sunscreen, you'll ensure that the blend helps protect your skin from both burning UVB and aging UVA rays. We're not sure you can say that about every tinted moisturizer brand on the market.

Here's how easy it is: Start with a couple pea size amounts of a moisturizing broad spectrum sunscreen, then add in a little foundation. Mix well with your fingers or a makeup brush and apply. What's great about blending it yourself is that you can change up the coverage as needed – if you want it more sheer, add less foundation; if you want more coverage, add more foundation.

I too have been doing this for years. I am new to Bioelements and have to say how pleased I am with your products. I was using another professional line of skin care, but it was just too strong for me. I love that your products are all natural. As a nurse, I understand the importance of that. I have 3 daughters ages 16-23 and I have them now using Bioelements. My eldest has very sensitive skin and she can use your products without an issue. I am very grateful to have found your line. :)


I’ve been doing this for many years!For those of us that are in a hurry in the morning, it helps save a step when I can quickly combine both sunscreen and foundation in my hand- it only takes seconds and ensures a smooth application.
