Ditch your foundation in favor of this Meghan Markle-approved tinted moisturizer

Summer is fast approaching, which means your beauty bag could probably use a refresh. The rich moisturizers, heavy foundations, and hydrating hand creams you used for winter probably won’t feel as applicable during the humid summer heat. One simple swap? Ditching your foundation for a lightweight yet equally effective tinted moisturizer. We suggest Laura Mercier’s top-rated tinted moisturizer—and Meghan Markle and over 3,000 Nordstrom shoppers would agree.

The highly rated tinted moisturizer combines skincare and makeup all in one easy formula. With broad-spectrum SPF 30 and hydrating ingredients like vitamins E and C, your skin will be both protected from the elements and seriously nourished. The lightweight formula provides sheer but buildable coverage that helps to minimize the look of imperfections without completely overwhelming your complexion.

And while the Duchess of Sussex has mentioned she uses the tinted moisturizer every day to give her skin a “dewy glow,” she’s not the only fan. Nordstrom shoppers are equally enthused about this product, calling it “hydrating,” “natural,” and “lightweight.”

One happy customer wrote: “My favorite tinted moisturizer! I’m not a big fan of heavy makeup but I do like to cover my uneven skin, blackheads, and some breakouts here and there. The application is so easy and after two to three minutes it doesn’t look like you’re wearing makeup at all! Other than the fact that your skin looks flawless. Feels very light on the skin and I love that it has SPF!”
