I thought I would review one of my summer staple products for you today :-)
This is the No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser and it is suitable for all skin types. It comes in three colour selections; fair, medium and tint fair/medium. I am very fair skinned but the shade I use is the tint fair/medium and the colour is a perfect match.
It is called 'Triple Protection' as it has the unique sun protective power of:
1) 5* UVA Technology
2) SPF 15
3) The No7 Patent Approved Antioxidant Complex
This unique formula helps to protect your skin from the ageing effects of the sun and the environment. On top of providing excellent sun protection, this Tinted Moisturiser also contains Hyaluronic Acid which provides 24hr skin hydration, Vitamins A&E and optical blurrers which keep you skin looking radiant and feeling well hydrated for the whole day.
When I first purchased this product I wasn't sure whether I would like it or not. I have tried a number of different Tinted Moisturisers and I have never really found them to be all that brilliant. Some of the ones I have tried in the past have also badly broken me out! That's why I was extremely surprised when I tried this and it didn't break me out, it left my skin feeling hydrated, smooth and added a hint of colour instantly! I really didn't expect it to have any coverage at all but this product does! It is very lightweight and sheer but it provides a light coverage - it does cover any minor blemishes and with a bit of concealer I find it provides just the right amount of coverage for those hot summer days.
The main reason I love this product is because as you all know by now, I am lazy :-) It is so easy to apply, I just dot it all over my face like I would a normal moisturiser and rub it in using my hands. It really is that simple. It blends beautifully so there is no need to buff it in with a brush. The finish is lovely, it doesn't feel sticky, cakey or heavy on the face and it doesn't leave you with an oily residue - looking really shiny! You can use a powder on top of this but I found that I didn't really need to use one until I had been out in the sun and then my T-zone was slightly shiny. I have combination skin so my skin can be oily at times but I haven't noticed much oil whilst using this Tinted Moisturiser.The hydrated, smooth feeling lasts all day which pleasantly surprised me as I really didn't expect it to. It really does feel as though you are wearing a high quality moisturiser.
The main thing that sold this product to me was the sun protection! During summer it is very important to me that my makeup contains an SPF - as mentioned before, I am very fair skinned and I burn very easily! The SPF in this product works very well. So far I haven't noticed any burning!
It is currently priced at £11.50 at Boots but it is on a special offer. If you buy one No7 product you get another one half price! I will definitely be stocking up whilst its on offer :-)
