Derma E is receiving a lot of my love this week, and I increasingly reach for more and more of their wonderful quality cruelty-free products.
The Derma E Tinted Moisturizing BB Cream SPF 30 is not a tinted moisturizer, but instead a tinted moisturizing BB cream– thus it is a moisturizing BB cream. This is an important distinction to make because tinted moisturizers and BB creams are not the same thing. The former is often just what it sounds like a lightweight, light coverage skin tint and moisturizer combined. The latter, instead, is more of a multipurpose tinted cream that offers light to medium coverage, a built-in primer, a sunscreen, and in this case a moisturizer as well.
The coverage is lightly buildable, and this one definitely has a slightly thicker consistency, often associated with BB creams, and yet it feels light as a feather on the skin. Once it tried down it has a matte finish, but not of the dry or uncomfortable variety that feels as though it is gripping the skin. It is very concentrated, and therefore a little goes a long way, but you will still need to reapply it, or your sunscreen throughout the day in order to keep your skin protected.
It contains a non-nano physical/mineral sunscreen, Zinc Oxide (20%), with the Sun Protection Factor of 30, but it does not create an unwanted white cast. The antioxidant-rich formula, which fights free-radicals, features ingredients such as Bilberry, Vitamins C and E "to help moisturize the skin"– which they do brilliantly!
