What tinted moisturiser or foundation do you find good?

I usually used Laura mercier in the summer but spotted the no 7 new one in boots yesterday - it has SPF 50 in it- anyone tried it ?

Not tried. I was looking for a moisturiser with spf 50 but this might be better idea.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue is SPF30 and I really really like it - decent enough coverage, feels lovely, very moisturising, excellent colour range.

If you want higher SPF, La Roche Posay do a tinted version of their SPF50 Anthelios facial sunblock, though it only comes in one sheer colour, or for more coverage, an SPF50 compact - IIRC it comes in two colours and I was lucky enough to match one of them, not so useful if you don't.

I use it all the time. It's good.

Nars tintd moisturiser is very good and has spf

I've got Elizabeth Arden visible difference BB cream right now
It's gorgeous, smells lovely, really makes skin smooth and soft . BUT i have shade 02 and it's a bit too pale for my (olive) skin. So I'm still looking for that holy grail (and I don't want higher than SPF30).

I really like the Kiehls BB cream. Less is definitely more with it. I really like the finish, polished but not "made up" iykwim. It's SPF50 I think - but I wouldn't rely on a BB cream for SPF in the summer.

I've used Clinique's tinted moisturiser for years, love it, but I think it only has an SPF of 15 - it should be OK if you wear a moisturiser with an SPF of 20/25, though.

Clinique CC cream is lovely - it has SPF 30. It gives great coverage and feels good on the skin.

Lots of different options thanks,
I m pale Irish colouring - and have an outbreak of freckles this week ! Ahhhhh need good sunblock but I hate
1) the luminescent white sunblock glow that comes through
2) the fact that a lot of it feels like a heavy oil slick
3) the oily stuff slides off my face in warm weather anyway!

At the moment I m using la Roche SPF 50 under nars sheer glow, or bourgeois blue lidded bb cream,
It just feels so heavy and oily on my skin, I don't like it. I prefer minimal make up in the summer.

I think I m going to go try some of those tomorrow. Starting with the Clinique and nars counter smile.

Now I also need a good mascara that s waterproof not clumpy ..... Ideas ?...

Oh just seen Kiehls might try that actually

I love biore watery essence spf50 & no 17 bb cream is lovely. LRP Anthelios is white & pills so I've relegated it to neck & chest now

I've found Clinique city block pretty good the SPF 25 one but I think they do a higher one too. And Mac prep and prime SPF 50.

For topping up the SPF during the day I like this:

I like the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, I have very fair skin and it's the only one I've found that doesn't look orange on me. It also feels really light on the skin smile

I use the no7 factor 50 tinted moisturiser- it's light but a little goes a long way or its a bit greasy
