I have made the switch from foundation for good!
This mineral based, oil-free tinted moisturizer is so lightweight, it feels like its barely there. It leaves a sheer but dewy, smooth and incredibly even finish. It provides sun protection with broad-spectrum sunscreen, guarding your skin against UVA and UVB rays with SPF 15. From the moment you apply this to your skin, you will have 25% more moisture, and continuous hydration for up to 8 hours, leaving you with 24% more radiant skin overall.
Like other Aveda makeup products, this mineral tinted moisturizer is non-acnegenic. This means it contains no ingredients that clog pores or cause breakouts. It also contains no parabens.
A few ingredients worth mentioning!
- Lecithin. This is a natural emulsifying agent that penetrates the skin quickly, while improving homeostasis. Skin functions in homeostasis include protection, regulation of body temperature, sensory reception, water balance, synthesis of vitamins and hormones, and absorption of materials.
- Jojoba esters are the hydrogenation product of jojoba oil. It closely resembles our skin’s natural sebum, so applying them means they are easily absorbed and won’t cause allergic reactions. Because of the incredible similarity to our own skin’s natural oils, jojoba esters act as a barrier for our skin, locking in moisture and protecting it from harmful bacteria. There are B vitamins, vitamin E and minerals including copper, chromium, silicon and zinc, each provide major benefits for all skin types ranging from dry, aging to sensitive.
- Willowbark extract has astringent, anti-inflammatory, soothing and conditioning properties. It can stimulate new cell formation, reducing age marks and wrinkles. Anti-oxidants work to increase blood flow to the skin. Willowbark extract also naturally contains salicylic acid, which helps to clear pores, shed dead skin cells.
