We’re all chasing that summer skin glow, all year round. So where better to start than with a tinted vitamin C moisturizer with SPF? A truly game-changing multitasker—think hydrating skincare, protecting sunscreen, and a sheer mineral tint to finish, meet C-Shield Anti-Pollution Moisture Tint. A major glow up of our best-selling Moisture Tint SPF 30, this tinted moisturizer has some serious skincare credentials, infused with anti-aging, reef-safe SPF to protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays, plus other environmental stressors, all while imparting a gorgeous, lightweight glow making it a worthy replacement for your heavier foundations or BB creams.
"As a new generation iteration of our fan-favorite Moisture Tint SPF 30+, this new formula maintains all of the benefits that we loved about the original: oil-free, lightweight, silky, radiant finish, but with so many new innovations including reef-safe, blue light protection, and an expanded tint range," explains Anna De La Cruz, Glo's VP of Product Development.
"Vitamin C takes a starring role, protecting against blue light damage and pollution, plus you have 21% zinc oxide too. As well as being a great mineral SPF offering instant sun and environmental protection, it also provides some serious calming benefits too, perfect for post-treatment or sensitive skin."
OK, so you may have heard us say this on repeat, but wearing SPF all day, everyday, even in winter, and even indoors is the best anti-aging prevention you can do. Prevention is better than cure after all. And, while protecting your skin from the sun’s aging and damaging rays is vital, you may as well have some fun doing it too. SPF you’ll actually look forward to wearing, C-Shield Anti-Pollution Moisture Tint uses a trio of broad-spectrum SPF including zinc oxide that never feels heavy and most certainly doesn’t leave a chalky finish like many others do. Shielding skin from free radical damage caused by environmental stressors like pollution and blue light too, this tinted moisturizer leans big into antioxidants, with vitamin C putting the C into C-Shield, plus vitamin E for all the skin love.
But what actually is a tinted moisturizer and why do we love it? Celebrating every skin tone and texture is what we’re all about at Glo, and this dewy skin-first formulation smooths and soothes, imparting a high-performance, flexible tint that boosts your best skin. An instant glow at your fingertips, it’s lightweight, oil-free, and effortlessly blendable, so you can wear it on its own, as a primer, or layered up with other products to really customize its finish. Perfect for evening out tone and re-upping your radiance, we use only talc-free mineral pigments to create our 10 flexible tints, so it’s suitable for even the most sensitive of skins.
Staying true to its skincare roots, at its core this deeply nourishing, clean, and caring formulation is loaded with skincare goodies like squalane and antioxidants to plump and repair skin while delivering a delicious surge of hydration too. Intentionally oil-free, this tinted moisturizer won’t clog pores, meaning oily and combination skin types can benefit from its conditioning benefits without being concerned about congestion.
"So, this is something we’re super proud of," adds Anna. "C-Shield Anti-Pollution Moisture Tint has quite possibly the dreamiest, creamiest, yet weightless texture out there. We purposely made the formula slightly more sheer so you can customize your use. Wear it sheer and like a second-skin, or build it for more of a medium coverage."
No separation, no mess, and absolutely no white cast or chalk, just a deliciously tactile texture and addictively seamless application that always looks flawless.
"And, it's designed to pair perfectly with different serums and moisturizers underneath as well as adding foundations on top if you're looking for a fuller coverage."
