Covergirl Smoothers SPF Tinted Moisturizer, $6.25
Tinted moisturizers are the beauty world’s way of making our lives more convenient and we are obsessed with this one. It’s the perfect lightweight moisturizer that is slightly tinted to help even out your skin tone. Did we mention that it has built-in SPF 15 too? The gel formula glides on easily for coverage that is super smooth and natural-looking. You can layer it under your makeup or by itself.  It’s perfect to wear to the gym or when you’re running weekend errands and want a little coverage.
