    Tinted Moisturizer, Primer & Illuminator


    Although it’s the holiday season, many of us aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to sun-kissed skin. And thanks to the myriad of CC, BB, DD, and tinted moisturizer options available you don’t have to. But which one is right for you? I recently broke down the basic differences between these types of formulas on the Graydon Skincare Beauty Blog, and I’d love to answer any questions you might have!

    Graydon Skincare is a natural brand from Canada that carries a wonderful line of skincare, haircare and body care products that are made from pure, plant-based ingredients. Most of their products are also vegan and nut free!

    Introducing: their Face Glow tinted moisturizer. A multitasking hero, this 2020 Eco Excellence Awards finalistis packed with superfood ingredients like raspberry, spirulina, and pumpkin seed oil.

    Graydon Skincare Face Glow Primer is a leading tinted primer. This multi-tasking dynamo also doubles as an illuminator, and highlighter for an elegant “no makeup” makeup look.

    Face Glow can be used as a primer or on its own, and imparts a healthy, radiant complexion thanks to sustainably sourced mica. And there’s no messing around with finding the right shade – their ultra-flattering Face Glow works on a broad range of skin tones and types for that fresh faced, “no makeup” look. What I like is the fact their lightweight formula delivers brightening and highlighting effects for an overall dewy, healthy-looking radiance.

    Graydon Skincare Face Glow Primer is also infused with Smithsonite, a semi-precious gemstone that belongs to the calcite group of crystals, known for their ability to protect the dermis against UVB. This beautiful stone is known for its soothing qualities that help create a state of openness, relaxation, and awareness – the perfect mental primer for your day.  Their formula of antioxidant rich, protective oils blended with rose gold mica, leaves your skin with a subtle, lit-from-within glow.

    Face Glow instantly enhances your complexion by balancing skin, smoothing texture and diffusing the appearance of lines. There is little this multi-purpose product can’t do!

      • Their products are cruelty free, and they never use SLS, sulphates, parabens, synthetic fragrances, petroleum, or other questionable ingredients
      • The aroma of this product comes from the wonderful, natural aromatic fruit extracts, and to me it smells a lot like chocolate!
