Spring Has Not Yet Sprung - Face Forward

Just in time for my daily daydream about what it will be like when Mayor Fenty actually clears the streets of the ice, the 18 tons of rock salt currently on the ground stop crusting over my Delman flats washes away and the sun makes more than a guest starring appearance in my day...

Kiehl's has announced that they have created a tinted moisturizer!

Not just any moisturizer, an Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15!

One of their most popular products, the Ultra Facial Moisturizer is a lightweight all-purpose lotion that goes on sheerly, sinks in quickly, and leaves little stickiness. I keep one in my gym bag for post-workout showers, and am currently seeing if the cream version can do anything for my dry and flaky skin.

I have had trouble with tinted moisturizers in the past...odd colors...not enough coverage...goopy texture...that slimy feeling I get from the wrong moisturizer. But I have high hopes for this one and Kiehl's rarely lets me down.

PS. I also managed to check out some of Kiehl's new lipglosses when I went on a little spending spree there last week, they are super cute! Not exactly "non sticky" billed, but cute nonetheless. Also, much more to come on Kiehl's products...gotta love their sample policy!!

I love to think that Kiehl's is getting into color cosmetics. Their products manage to be no-nonsense and exceed your expectations all at the same time. Great news & thanks for reporting it!

I hate to spoil all the fun, but...I tried the Kiehl's tinted moisturizer yesterday, and I was not at all impressed. I'm super bummed because I had high expectations for this. I currently use Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer, which I love but wanted to try something new. The main problem with the Kiehl's one is there are only 3 colors (light, medium, and dark), and rarely does anyone's skin color actually match one of the three colors. I am usually in between a light and a medium, and (even though I am tan right now due to a spring break rendevous) the light was WAY too light and the medium was too dark and orang-ey. Plus, they weren't as transparent as I had hoped. Has anyone else tried these and had the same experience?
