This or That: Battle of the Tinted Moisturizers

Posted by Kristin on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 3:53 PM

Ok, can we be honest for a minute? It is so hot, humid, and disgusting outside. Putting on a face full of makeup for a fun day/night out sounds like an absolutely terrible idea. So, what’s a girl to do? Sit inside all summer? Highly unlikely. Forgo a beauty routine all together? That hasn’t happened since turning 25. When the temperature continues to creep higher and higher, you’re best beauty weapon will be tinted moisturizer. Lightweight, barely there coverage evens out skin tone while adding moisture to aid in your summer time glow!

With that settled, now it’s time to browse multiple different offerings and choose. To make it easier, we picked two of our favorites for a battle of the tinted moisturizers and leave it up to you to decide between, “This or That”.

It’s Clinique’s Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 versus Christian Dior’s Capture Totale Multi Perfection Tinted Moisturizer. Both brands offer high quality products, with pros and cons dependant on your skin care needs.

With broad spectrum SPF 15 protection, Clinique’s Surge Tinted Moisturizer is a great option for those who might not remember sunscreen every morning. Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 is also available in six shades, whereas Christian Dior’s Capture Totale Multi Perfection Tinted Moisturizer only comes in two. Also missing from Christian Dior’s is SPF, however the creamy formula does contain Aminolumine™ and a Color Catalyser pigment to help correct the signs of aging and add a healthy glow effect.

So, when it comes down to this or that, the battle of the tinted moisturizers, which will you choose; Christian Dior’s Capture Totale Multi Perfection Tinted Moisturizer or Clinique’s Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15?
