In an effort to use up my current collection of products, and stopping myself from buying new items which I don’t need until this current mountain is somewhat dwindled, I came up with a new base for my everyday routine that I have been loving.
One upon a time I bought the full size of this, when it was most incredibly hyped in the blogging world. Tried it on to see myself looking like a hot oily mess in a few hours. I returned it and never looked back.
Fast forward a few months with this mini as a GWP and my growing affection.
This is a moisturizer with a tint release. Some people use it as a moisturizer and apply foundation on top.
I’m quite a fan of the SHEER base and aim for a very natural light base for summer, so I usually wore this alone with concealer.
With summer sun I noticed two things.
1. I was getting oily very fast with this product
2. It only had an spf of 15, and I did not like the effect of this with sunscreen over the top.
(Loses some radiance)
La Roche Posay Sunscreen for combination oily sensitive skin.
This sunscreen helps mattify the complexion of those suffering from a bit too much shine and has a higher spf which I feel more comfortable with wearing daily.
This seems to counter balance the richness Vitazing can often create on my skin.
Squirt 1 dollop of vitazing, and pour on the sunscreen on top.
Mix the two together to create a *glowy* tint release base with a high spf that has coverage!
Vitazing is a bit darker than my skin (even with my so called tan) the sunscreen seems to help mellow out the color tint to bring it down a slight notch which is perfect! It's still a bit darker than my real skin, but looks more like a genuine tan.
I don’t tend to powder my skin with this combination but if I do see some shine a blotting paper can easily fix the issue at lunch. If I have a long day I do pat a bit of Mineral Veil on my T zone alone.
Add on a concealer and bronzer, and the summer base is complete~!!
I am currently nearing the end of both these products and will be trying LRP’s new mineral tinted sunscreen next!
Let’s hope it’s love!
