Tinted Moisturizer - Why Use It?

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

What is the point of using tinted moisturizer instead of regular moisturizer?


Too many products

Dear Too many products,

Tinted moisturizers have just what the name implies, some color added to the moisturizer. Tinted moisturizers give your face a hint of color, so you do not look like you are wearing foundation makeup. Foundation makeup is heavier and covers the skin and its imperfections, whereas tinted moisturizers are lightweight and may help even out skin tone, but will not cover up age spots, freckles, or blemishes. Also, as with regular moisturizers, always look for tinted moisturizers with an SPF of at least 15.

Generally high positive ratings were given to the tinted facial moisturizers below by at least 25 consumers at All moisturizers had an SPF of at least 15, or higher as indicated.
