When it comes to lazy days but I still wanna wear makeup, I always reach for a tinted moisturizer or CC/BB cream. These are so easy to wear since they provide skincare benefits and also give you coverage on your skin, blurring out redness and impurities.
You guys know I love IT Cosmetics’ CC Cream and wear it on the regular, but am always open to trying out new products along the similar line. When I got in Rodan + Fields’ new Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid Broad Spectrum SPF 30, I was instantly intrigued since I’ve heard so many amazing things about R+F and I love a great tinted moisturizer.
The Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (C$76) is available in six different shades and combines skincare benefits with complexion-perfecting results.
R+F says that this is the final step in your skincare routine as it perfects skin after your routine (plus gives you that SPF for when you’re out and about). This lightweight oil-free formula contains R+F’s proprietary RD3 Complex, which provides three forms of defence: environmental, barrier, and photo. It also helps defend against environmental aggressors, repair’s skin’s moisture barrier, and protects against UVA and UVB rays.
Since I have pretty good skin already, I did find that one coat was good enough to give me the coverage I was looking for. It is lightweight and I wouldn’t call it a full coverage, but it gives me just enough that my face looks flawless with one application. You can also build it up for more flawless skin.
I have the shade beige, which is the second-lightest shade in the range. I also have the Radiant Defense Liquid Brush (C$44) that is the perfect partner to apply this with (and probably one of the best foundation brushes I have ever used). First I shake the product up then squeeze it on the brush head before buffing it into my skin. I find this shade to match perfectly with my skin and the product absorbs in nicely, leaving me with a finish that I’m completely loving.
As you can see in the swatches, it doesn’t completely mute out the redness in my face, but it dulls it and blurs it out, leaving me with a finish that is natural and perfect for everyday wear. If you aren’t a huge makeup fan, then I think you’ll absolutely love this as it touches up any imperfections on your skin and gives you a radiant finish (not to mention all those skincare benefits!). It’s also perfect for that beach vacation you have planned at the end of the month since it’s light on the skin and gives you sun coverage with the built-in SPF 30.
This was my first foray into Rodan + Fields and I’ve only ever heard amazing things about their skincare products. I can definitely see what the hype is all about and am looking forward to exploring their other items in the line.
Keep a lookout on my Instagram because I’ll be launching a giveaway soon to give away a shade of this product and the brush to one lucky Canadian winner!
