I’m not going to lie, I kind of hoped that I would hate La Mer’s Radiant SkinTint. I feel like the brand was the first one to make expensive skincare ‘mainstream’ and each release since just feels a bit spendier. I know people moan about the mineral oil in the formulas, but they really seem to work for my skin, and sadly (for my bank balance), the SkinTint is no exception.
Packaged in a slick tube, the SkinTint is a sheer-coverage option which is perfect if you’re looking for a natural finish base. As someone who like a barely-there finish, this one has quickly become my work and zoom go to. It’s sheer, but perfecting and it has the perfect amount of glow too.
As you would expect from the brand, the SkinTint has an spf 30, and contains the brand’s signature miracle broth, and the result is that it keeps skin hydrated all day long, and it stays nicely glowy too. It’s a nice polished finished, which is a step up from my regular formulas. The SkinTint lasts well all day, and I don’t need to top up my makeup, even if I’ve been out and about. The only downside (apart from the horrific price point) is the limited colours available – with a choice of seven, it’s really not the greatest, and I don’t understand why brands are still keep shade ranges so small.
