The Science Behind the Product
MakeSense® Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer is a virtually weightless tinted moisturizer that has been formulated with Yellow/Green/Mint color pigments that help to eliminate ruddiness of rosacea or the inflamed red areas of blemish prone skin. For those who desire a ‘barely there’ light and fresh even skin tone and at the same time eliminate red tones, our “CC” cream is the perfect, advanced skin care solution as it can be worn alone or as a first coat. Either way, the Arnica within the formula acts as a fungicide that helps to eliminate free radicals from the atmosphere and germs that are found naturally proliferated as a result of blemishes. For additional long lasting coverage after application of MakeSense® Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer apply a layer of MakeSense Foundation® shade of choice. Whether using MakeSense® Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer alone or with another MakeSense Foundation® shade, skin will be protected from harmful rays with a mechanical shield. Antioxidants and peptides provide anti-aging benefits along with SenePlex® Complex that fights fine lines, wrinkles, and firms the skin.
