I have talked at length here about my love for no-makeup makeup. I’m not a huge fan of foundation and sometimes find that even tinted moisturizer is too “makeup-y” for me. This winter, I discovered NaturaBissé’s The Cure. I fell in love with it. Anti-aging ingredients, SPF, sheer coverage, and a self-adjusting tint that works whether you are pale or tan. It’s amazing. When I wear it, my skin looks like my skin… just a little bit more dewy, radiant, and glowy. I featured it here in this post but felt guilty as man, it’s expensive (the tube lasts forever but it’s $185). Enter Dr. Dennis Gross’s Instant Radiance Sun Defense. This stuff is just as good – it makes my skin look perfectly glowy and radiant (and has SPF 40)… for $42. I know, I know… $42 certainly isn’t a bargain, but when compared to a $185 product, it is much better.
Both products deliver that no makeup/genetically blessed sort of skin. I can’t say enough good things and as much as I adore The Cure am so happy to have found a reasonably priced alternative that I can comfortably recommend.
PS – I know you will ask… I’m still looking for the drugstore equivalent to this and have yet to find it. In the meantime, the L’Oreal Lumi Cushion is my favorite drugstore non-foundation-foundation. It’s nice + sheer, and totally weightless… but a totally different product than these as it’s a cushion and not a cream… and it does not have SPF.
