Even with all the skincare reviews we write, we can’t help but have a few favorites and Algenist fits into the favorites category. We’ve shared a lot of Algenist skincare articles but this is the first time we’re going to share a color product from Algenist with you. Algenist Repairing Tint & Radiance Moisturizer SPF 30 is a fairly new launch from Algenist and we were thrilled to each be sent a tube in our foundation shade.

This is available in 4 shades: Light, Light/Medium, Medium and Tan ($42). Since Algenist is such a powerhouse of skincare you’ve got to know that any cosmetic product they produce is going to be loaded with their skincare. Algenist’s Repairing Tint & Radiance Moisturizer SPF 30 combines key microalgae ingredients to deliver great professional color and biotechnology skincare. Here are results from a test they’ve shared on their website:

We love our double duty products at Beauty Info Zone and Algenist Repairing Tint & Radiance Moisturizer SPF 30 is definitely double duty if not a lot more. It contains moisturizers from Algenist along with SPF30 to protect you from the sun’s damage.

When I first tested this tinted moisturizer I was worried about the shade. It appears darker on my hand than I normally wear but once I applied it on my face, the magic began and it blended in perfectly. I use skincare under it (currently Algenist Genius White products but I’ve used others too) so it will smooth on more easily on my face.

The best way for me to apply this is with my fingers just like I would any moisturizer. I tried using tools and that sheered it out too much plus I felt like I was losing the wonderful skincare and sunscreen benefits that way. This is a great tinted moisturizer all year round but with summer on its way I like it even more. It gives me enough coverage to diminish the redness and dim the sunspots while at the same time blurring my skin imperfections. I still use a concealer under my eyes but that’s all I need to face the world.

Anything that combines skin care science and cosmetic color is of interest to me, and Algenist Repairing Tint and Radiance Moisturizer doesn’t disappoint.
 .
In terms of skin care this elegant formula has microalgae ingredients that reduce the appearance of fine lines, refines texture, and improves elasticity.  The SPF 30 keeps skin safe from further damage by the sun.
.
In terms of color, it immediately covers imperfections and redness.  I like the coverage, although I do also need a concealer for under my eyes. Like Marcia, I find this works best applied with fingers. Body heat gives it a very natural look while also maintaining the color for coverage. Plus, the Medium shade is perfect for my sort of light, sort of medium skin tone. It’s a great way to multi-task, treating your skin while also getting instant gratification with an even skin tone.

This is available at QVC ($36), Sephora, Ulta, and Algenist’s website. At the time of this review Ulta has a gwp of deluxe sample of Genius White Brightening Anti-Aging Cream. Wherever you buy it you’ll be happy you did!

    Wow, this sounds amazing! I absolutely love tinted moisturizers (more than full-coverage foundation), and this one sounds really amazing. I would choose light for my complexion! I am going to have to check this out!
