The trend of Tinted Skin

*AD - Please note that some of the products mentioned in this post were gifted to me for a review

Although summer is just wrapping up, I am still in my summery mode as I am just about to take off for my summer holiday in Croatia and therefore all I can think about is summer beauty trends. The same as last year, tinted moisturisers are the way to go. There have been many new releases since last summer and I would like to share my thoughts on a couple of them (disclaimer: I am unsure if the products in question were actually released in 2023 haha, but they are certainly new to my beauty world).

La Roche Posay: Anthelios UVMUNE 400 tinted fluid

A while ago I reviewed the Anthelios UVMUNE 400 invisible fluid with SPF50 from La Roche Posay and I really enjoyed testing it. True, I have found some cheaper dupes since then but that does not change my opinion on this magical SPF. I have also reviewed the Anthelios Mineral One, also from LRP and it still remains one of my favourite makeup/skin products for the summer. Now, I will share some thoughts on another product from La Roche Posay which is a mix of both products mentioned - Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Tinted fluid

The SPF50 fluid comes in 50 ml plastic bottle. The consistency is the same as for the invisible fluid - very runny. It soaks into the skin easily and leaves it nice and glowy. And tinted!  

The tint is much lighter than the Anthelios Mineral One. It does not cover red spots or scars but it gives the skin the tint and glow so it is ideal for the no makeup makeup days when I want to look very natural but am too pale to go away without any makeup (I mean... the contrast between my skin and the circles under my eyes is not great leaving me looking like a walking corpse sometimes). The light tint evens out the skin creating a much healthier look without looking like I have any makeup on. 

I am not sure if the colour (there is only one shade) is the best match but since the cover is just very sheer, it does not seem to be an issue. If you want to see this product in action, head over to my Instagram. 

Lancaster: Infinite Bronze 

Have you noticed the recent trend of bronzing drops for the face? It started with Drunk Elephant and now every brand seems to release some sort of bronzing equivalent. Unfortunately, all those products are always sold out and the only thing just remotely related to bronzing drops I could find is the Infinite Face Bronzer from Lancaster

The cream provides SPF15 and can be described as a brown cream that melts into the skin leaving it looking tanned. The colour seems a bit too dark for me so I mix it with my SPF cream which results in a nice tanned mix. 

Again, I use this blend on my no-makeup days but in this instance, I do not add anything else on - no mascara or concealer. This mixture is my way of pretending that I am actually tanned lol. And it seems to be working. 

Do not expect this bronzing cream to provide much moisture - it is clearly not a replacement for any moisturiser and it looks the best on well-hydrated skin.
I cannot compare Lancaster’s bronzing cream to the popular bronzing drops but I think it’s fairly decent if the bronzing is what you are looking for. Moreover, it is not too expensive so if your budget is tight, this bronzer may be an okay solution.
