Raise your hands if you’re currently melting in the heat. I see… that it’s all of us. This is the kind of weather that makes you want to drink a lot of water (maybe just dunk yourself in it), attach yourself to an air conditioner and tie your hair up in a bun. My skincare routine involves a thorough cleanse because my skin has been exposed to a cocktail of moisturiser, sunscreen, sweat, dirt and grime, yes sounds very cute. At this point, if you ask me to add coverage, I might come at you with a baton and it will fully be my intention to cause injury. Because it is simply too hot. This is the cue for the tinted moisturiser to bring its wondrous benefits in.
Most dermats will tell you that it might be hot but you must moisturise and use sunscreen. See, here’s where we tell you that you could even throw coverage into the mix. Yes, it’s time for tinted moisturisers to shine and we picked up 5 that are absolute stalwarts in this space.
Huda Beauty Glowish

I shall admit without an iota of shame that Huda Beauty products have my whole heart and all of the money in my wallet. And this tinted moisturiser from the brand’s stable brings the coverage and quality of the brand and makes you look like a glow-y goddess and at this point, I would love to look like my skin is made from angel dust, so yes, I will take this.
Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15
Now we all love ourselves some Bobbi Brown. The brand has a great ethos and their products are *chefs kiss*. This tinted moisturiser gives your coverage but the kind that looks natural so your freckles can come through, the the unevenness and and redness don’t peek through. Plus this has radiance and SPF 15, so I am adding this to cart, as you should.
thebalm Anne T. Dotes Tinted Moisturizer
Put that foundation down and reach of this tinted moisturiser from the house of TheBalm. This one comes infused with bio-retinol so there’s some skin loving thrown in there too and I for one, am a sucker for anything that promises to take care of my skin while giving me a finish that will have my frenemies googling my skincare routine.
Wet N Wild Bare Focus Tinted Hydrator Tinted Skin Veil
If you’ve been watching beauty bloggers, most of them have sworn allegiance to this amalgamation of hydration, tint and awesomeness. This Wet N Wild tinted moisturiser comes in a bunch fo shades, each one promising coverage and also hydration because it comes infused with hyaluronic acid. Dry skin beauties will love this one.
Clinique Moisture Surge Sheertint Hydrator SPF 25
I am currently loving the Clinique concealer and if that’s anything to by, this this sheer tinted moisturiser from Clinique should be the stuff dreams are made of. This has aloe water so expect your parched skin to thank you. It also comes in a range of shades, and that’s always amazing. BRB, we are going to raid the beauty aisle.
