White Willow Salicins and Natural Retinol Liposomes are just a couple of the ingredients in this latest evolution of Suki Tinted Active Moisturizer. If there’s one thing that Suki does, it’s that she listens… she listens to her skin’s needs, she listens to her clients’ skin needs and then she develops and formulates her synthetic-free advanced technology pure makeup accordingly.

I’ve never had the luxury of applying a foundation that actually feels like it’s soothing as it makes contact with my sensitive facial skin. In this much-improved product, the Suki Tinted Active Moisturizer, my skin benefits from the comfrey-sourced allantoin to make the application feel like a treatment for my skin that I’m applying underneath the rest of my makeup.
I’ve also learned to regulate the thickness of coverage by taking Suki’s advice and mixing a pump of the foundation with a dab of my favorite Suki Balancing Day Lotion to achieve a lighter coverage for day. For evening, I often use the tinted moisturizer, that goes on like a foundation alone for deeper coverage.

I love that when I wear this makeup, I can trust that it’s boosting my natural cell turnover and collagen synthesis. That it fights free radicals with its vitamin packed antioxidant, a proprietary Suki blend of high potency botanic concentrate, is a big bonus, especially amidst big city living. And don’t get me wrong, I truly appreciate the anti-wrinkle properties she’s formulated with vegetable-sourced retinol polypeptide liposomes, but it’s the soothing feel my skin adores from the product’s standardized white willow bark based ingredient when I smooth on a swath of it across my cheeks, chin, forehead and nose in the mornings. That’s when I feel ready and good to greet the day.
