I was inspired by a series on No More Dirty Looks where the girls featured a series of their favorites foundations. I thought that was a great idea to do a separate post dedicated to each favorite product instead of putting all of the favorites into one big post. Instead of doing my favorite foundations I decided to go for my favorite Tinted Moisturizers as I find that they are what I reach for most of the time and what I prefer over most liquid and mineral foundations. I might do more series posts like this featuring specific products like Concealers, Mascara’s, etc. Please let me know if you would like me to do a series of blog posts dedicated to my favorite natural products and which you would be the most interested in seeing!
This will be a series of four posts featuring four different tinted moisturizers that I love and use often. Starting off this series is a product I recently tested out and have been loving- It is the Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF20 by Marie Veronique Organics.
This Tinted Moisturizer/SPF protects against both UVA and UVB rays with non-nano zinc oxide and provides a sheer matte finish that makes it ideal for everyday use.
The result is a smooth, sheer matte finish and peace of mind knowing your skin is protected.mRecommended for all skin types, Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 is the only UVA/UVB sunscreen made with 16.6 % non-nano zinc oxide. This Tinted Moisturizer comes in four different shades: Extra Light Tint, Light Tint, Medium Tint and Dark Tint.
Non-nano zinc oxide
Non-nano zinc oxide protects against the full UV spectrum, UVA as well as UVB. It works by reflecting UV rays rather than absorbing them. And, it’s highly stable, unlike most chemical sunscreens, which can generate free radicals that cause skin damage.
This powder contains calcium carbonate and conchiolin, alternating layers of which create a pearl’s luster. Its light reflective qualities also make it ideal for cosmetic foundations where a lustrous finish is desired. Reflected light makes skin appear brighter, dark circles appear less dark and wrinkles appear shallower.
Oat Beta glucansThis polysaccaride known for its ability to penetrate deeply, delivers significant anti-aging benefits because it moisturizes at deeper layers of the skin.
Active ingredient: 16.6% non-nano zinc oxide.

I went with Extra Light Tint for my fair skin and find that the color matches me perfectly. I think in the warmer months I could possibly go a little darker by using the Light Tint but for the most part I am very happy with the shade I use. The scent is very herbally. It almost smells of flowers. It can be a little bit hard to really rub into the skin if you have very dry skin like I do. I tend to use a light moisturizer underneath this for added hydration. Once it’s on the skin it’s fairly easy to blend and I prefer to use my fingers with this and with most tinted moisturizers. I really like that this tinted moisturizer not only protects my skin with healthy SPF but it also moisturizes, covers redness well and lasts on my skin all day without getting shiny or greasy. This product has also never caused me to breakout or left me with any irritated skin. After using this only a few times I knew it was already in my top four favorites!
Look for my Part 2 in the Tinted Moisturizer series soon!
