Bethany Frankel’s Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer

Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

I don’t watch the Real Housewives TV shows, but of course I know who the main housewives are from the media.  Before I tried the new Skinnygirl Tinted Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 ($10.99 USD), I knew that Bethenny Frankel was a reality TV star, but I didn’t know much about her brand, Skinnygirl.

Bethenny started her line with lo-cal alcoholic beverages and is branching out to a face and body line.

The claim is:

Even out your skin tone without using heavy makeup products. This formula is rich in Vitamin E and has Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to help prevent the visible signs of aging from the sun. Choose a light, medium, or dark shade to reduce redness and smooth out skin for an even-toned, gorgeous glow.

Key Ingredients:

SPF 15 – Protects skin from sun damage
Vitamin E – An antioxidant that has anti-aging properties to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
Jojoba Esters – A deep moisturizer

What I think:  I like the formula of this.  It feels like a moisturizer, but can look a little heavy if not blended correctly.  This has a built-in application brush — you unlock it, then squeeze up the amount you want and it comes out through the brush.  I don’t care for the brush because it leaves streaks on the skin when applied and you really need to blend it in.  I like squeezing the amount I need onto my hand, then applying with a good foundation brush.

The coverage is medium — not light like most tinted moisturizers, so I think it would work for a lot of women’s needs.  I also like the SPF 15.  I don’t know if I would purchase this again, but it a good price for what you get.& Body for any upcoming summer beauty stories you might have in the works.

Available at Walmart and http://skinnygirlfaceandbodystore.com/.  Enjoy!
