    Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30.

    In the summer months, I am pretty much addicted to DuWop's Revolotion Face. I will admit that I wish it offered a higher SPF in it, and I think I just might have found a tinted moisturizer to replace it. Stila's Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer has a new formula that offers the same best-selling coverage, but now has an oil-free, SPF 30 formula.

    Now, they are not replacing the original product, Stila is just offering it for those of us who prefer a higher sunscreen rating. 

    "The multi-tasking formula evens skin tone, provides medium coverage, and naturally absorbs oil with white willow bark to leave your skin glowing. It also moisturizes and smoothes skin with silk amino acids while improving the skin's natural barrier protection, and soothes skin with pomegranate extract."

    This Sheer Color with SPF 30 comes in eight shades and retails for $36 at stilacosmetics.com, Sephora stores and sephora.com.
