Tis the season for tinted moisturizers dears. I’m all for light wearing base in the Summer. Seriously, who wants a ton of goopey foundation on their face in 90 degree weather. Ummm no! Cargo Tinted Moisturizer is light coverage with an SPF 20….
On board with that?
Cargo SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer is a skin energizing mineral tinted moisturizer with light diffussing pigments to help even out skin ton without being heavy or greasy.
My review isn’t base on coverage since the shade I got wasn’t my exact correct tone (WAY too dark) but I will tell you about the texture of the product and how it feels on. First off it does sport a nice range of sun protection with an SPF 20. I find most TM’s (tinted moisturizers) go for 15 or less and in some cases 20. Of course, I’d rather go with the SPF 20 so I’m appreciating the fact Cargo went with the higher number here. This is a thick formula with plenty of pigmentation but it easily absorbs into skin without feeling greasy or heavy. Although the shade I got to test wasn’t suitable for my skin tone I can easily see a lighter shade offering nice coverage that will even out my complexion.
The formula is oil, paraben, and fragrance free.
Aside from the color I got, nothing to rant about here.
- Anyone who likes fully pigmented tinted moisturizers!
- Anyone seeking a lighter base for the Summer.
- Anyone who wants to erase dullness and even out skin tone with light coverage.
- Anyone seeking a TM with a higher SPF.
- Anyone that doesn’t like thicker, creamier tinted moisturizers.
- Anyone unwilling to spend over $30 on a base!
Color was way off on this product but it actually didn’t stop me too much from experimenting fully. I’m liking the general feel of this and will be indulging in my own color as I liked it so much.
