Why: I don't like foundation. I don't like the way it feels like I'm wearing a makeup-y mask, and I don't like the unnatural tint that it gives my skin. I've found that most tinted moisturizers fall under this foundation category, too, giving my skin an organge-y pallor without much softness.
So I was skeptical about The Balm's Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer until I found that this SPF 18 version gives a subtle dose of color to even out the skin while providing oh-so-light moisture. Now can relax knowing my skin looks better without worrying that my cheeks are a different color than my neck. Thank goodness — I don't even like wearing a mask on Halloween, much less to work.
