/  Makeup   /  The Best Organic Tinted Moisturizers
Tinted Moisturizers from Suntegrity & Badger

We love the sheerness of a tinted moisturizer — they never look cakey and can be used as the perfect tacky base to apply a powder over if you want to layer it on for extra coverage and a more matte look. They are also great to apply on makeup-free weekends so that a little “you” will shine through.

If you’re thinking of trying organic beauty options, we want to help you find the perfect tinted moisturizer. We know there are a lot of products out there to choose from, so we chose our favorite two tinted moisturizers to compare. At KeyGlam, we want to make sure what we’re applying on our skin each day is safe and good for our well-being, so we selected only organic tinted moisturizers to compare.

When deciding on which was best, we looked at a variety of factors: price, scent, SPF, consistency, coverage, color, and ingredients. All those factors went into our overall recommendation for each product, which are broken down as either. Our recommendation is skip it (not recommended), try it (we liked it but didn’t love it) or buy it (we recommend it) based on how each stacked up. So, let’s get to it!

Our Review: Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Moisturizing Face Sunscreen is a little pricey at $45, but we found it sits really well on the skin, providing medium coverage and the color is really nice. We also like the range of skin shades Suntegrity offers. This tinted moisturizer pairs really well with a powder, which helps to prolong the coverage and add opacity. Overall, this is our favorite of the three. Tip: It pairs really well with a powder, which helps to prolong the coverage. Alima Pure’s satin matte foundation might be the perfect match.
