As I’ve said before, I hardly wear face makeup and I recommend this regimen for your skin always. However, when my skin decides to turn against me and break out or a special occasion arrives, Laura Mercier is my go-to for face makeup. Here’s why:
LM Is Cruelty Free And Does Not Test On Animals
LM is committed to the elimination of animal testing. They do not conduct animal testing on their products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on their behalf. They claim they evaluate their finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels.
LM Contains SPF that protects against both UVA and UVB rays
The following foundations contain SPF 15 or greater: Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20, Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free SPF 20, Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, Mineral Powder SPF 15 and Mineral Pressed Powder SPF 15.
LM’s Tinted Moisturizers Contain Skin Vitamins
Tinted Moisturizer features an antioxidant vitamin complex of vitamins C and E that protects the skin from even the most aggressive effects of the environment.
LM’s Face Makeup, Especially Tinted Moisturizers, Provide A Formula Suited for All Skin Types (Opinion)
As a person who has experienced periods of oily skin (in my teen years), dry skin (early 20s) and now experiences combination skin, Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizers have suited every stage my skin has gone through. From someone who has experienced very oily skin to eczema, Laura Mercier’s formula is gentle and hydrating enough to never cause breakouts on my face and also provide the right amount of coverage that evens out my skin tone. Tinted Moisturizers can be applied with a brush, but using my hands have proved to be just fine.
After trying so many makeup brands to accommodate my ever-changing sensitive skin, from Smashbox (which leaves my skin too oily) to Bobbi Brown (which leaves my skin looking cakey) and Tarte (which leaves my skin too pasty), no other makeup brand has provided exactly what I need and WANT besides Laura Mercier. As I’ve said before, I hate that cakey makeup look where it’s obvious you’re wearing foundation. I love that effortless flawless finish and Laura Mercier gives just that while providing the right amount of hydration and being skin sensitive.
“I created this product because I wanted to give skin a fresh, healthy, no-makeup look with a soft hint of colour that evens and enhances without hiding the skin.”
