Tinted moisturiser is a good alternative for people who don't like plastering on foundation but want a little coverage while keeping skin soft.


Bobbi Brown SPF15 Tinted Moisturizer (HK$340/ 50ml)

A great product for make-up newbies, this offers lightweight coverage and effective moisturising, is easily absorbed and blended, and is slightly mattifying. Pricy if you intend to use it daily, though.


Dermagram Sun Defense Fluid SPF30 PA++ Tinted (HK$230/ 30ml)

This anti-allergic product has herbal ingredients and is made for Asian skin tone. Its light weight gives skin an ultra-sheer texture while protecting it against UVA and UVB rays. Highly recommended.


Floxia SPF50 (HK$390/ 40ml)

This was a bit sticky, but rubbed in easily and was not too oily. The orange colour was a little off-putting but it smelled nice!


Anna Lotan Green Camellia Tinted Day Cream SPF30 (HK$320/ 50ml)

Creamy and super soft in texture, and thankfully not sticky or oily. Fragrance-free and non-irritating, it slightly conceals redness and under-eye circles, and evens out your complexion in a flash.


The Body Shop Vitamin E Tinted Moisture Lotion (HK$159/ 50ml)

This is watery, the tint makes no difference, it's not particularly moisturising and the smell is just plain weird. The only things in its favour are the price and Vitamin E content. A little goes a long way, as they say.
