Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Skin Tint ($39) is a new version of Philosophy’s beloved Hope in a Jar Moisturizer. This new water-gel formula apparently provides the buildable coverage of a foundation and is available in five shade selections. Feels like this could be a potential new beauty trend as earlier this month Clinique launched a new Pep-Start Hydro Rush Moisturizer that’s also tinted. So, you might be thinking, “But this isn’t really a new trend, we already have tinted moisturizers on the market!” I completely agree but it seems like these formulas are ACTUAL moisturizers with a tint. For example, I love Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer but I never considered it a real moisturizer and I’ve always applied moisturizer under it prior. Likewise, for most tinted moisturizers. I’d never actually depend on a tinted moisturizer for hydration because most are very subtle in the moisture department. I just think of them as a light, sheer coverage versus an actual moisturizer!
These newer launches do appear to be handing your more moisture and also a tint. But I question whether they work or not. I mean I’m not sure how comfortable I am slathering myself in a moisturizer that provides buildable coverage. Why? Because I’m pretty liberal when applying moisturizer because, hey, I have dry skin. And I’m also pretty light with my foundation, so yeah, see my dilemma?
None the less, I’m curious!
What do you think about these new tinted moisturizers?
