This is it, the real deal. THE ONE. NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen is by far the best summer foundation I have ever put on my face. It’s so awesome, it’s the only product in my day time skincare routine (other than face wash). Yep, it’s my moisturizer, primer, foundation, sunscreen, and concealer all rolled up into one, glorious, luminous product.
This product really shines in the area of SPF- this is not some wimpy, faux-sunscreen you see in other products. I put it to the test (accidentally) recently when I was caught unexpectedly in the mid-day sun for over an hour. My shoulders and chest were badly burnt, but my face? Not even a little pink.
The website claims that it will improve hyper-pigmentation with continued use – I don’t know if that’s due to the sunscreen or the “lush, naturally-derived botanicals,” but I can tell you that my oily, acne prone skin has never looked better.
Speaking of oily, it’s worth mentioning that this product delivers legit coverage without oxidizing or sliding of my face halfway through the day.
Bottom Line: It’s True Love, and receives my highest product recommendation.
