COMPLEXION RESCUE: Discover the Magic Behind the Minerals

November 08, 2023

When there's a product we're really excited about, it's usually because our community tells us how good it makes them feel. Well, 1,200 5-star reviews later, that's definitely the case for COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid and Mineral SPF 30. We're answering some basic (and deep dive) questions about this hybrid foundation-skincare superhero.

So, what is COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid and Mineral SPF 30?

OK, we know that name is a bit of a mouthful. We usually just call it COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer, to be honest, but let's break down all the elements of its official title.

  • Tinted: This is not a full-coverage foundation it provides a sheer tint to skin. That said, 'airbrushed' comes up a lot when people talk about it. 
  • Hydrating: This formula contains Hyaluronic Acid and Olive-Derived Squalane. Hyaluronic Acid  help boost skin's moisture levels while  Olive-Derived Squalane quenches dry skin for all day hydration. 
  • SPF 30: Broad Spectrum SPF is an integral part of this formula. We use clean, mineral-based sunscreen in our products, as it provides physical protection from the sun and is environmentally friendly.

Alright, and what makes mineral-based sunscreen better for the environment?

Studies have shown that chemical sunscreens may be linked to the bleaching of our coral reefs. Some localities have banned the sale of chemical sunscreens for this reason and recommend mineral-based sunscreens instead. Learn more about the Power of Minerals, here.

Is COMPLEXION RESCUE clean?

Yes! It's vegan, cruelty-free. It's also free of synthetic fragrance, talc and unnecessary additives.

Is there a shade that will work for me?

We offer 20 flexible shades of COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Moisturizer to cover all skin tones. Since the coverage is sheer, each shade works on a range of skin tones, making it more flexible than a full-coverage foundation.
