With so many skin moisturizers out there, do we really need yet another product to join the bandwagon? NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer shows us what makes it different from other skin care products.

The NARS Pure Radiant Difference

NARS founder and creative director Francois Nars’s skin care philosophy is simple: skin should shine through makeup. To this end, Nars and his team drew inspiration from the gorgeous waters of French Polynesia in order to create this special skin moisturizer.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF30/PA+++ provides an oil-free, translucent veil that effectively obscures the appearance of lines, wrinkles, pores and other skin imperfections. That it also boasts of anti-aging and skin-brightening benefits doesn’t hurt one bit, too.

While we might not have the cash or time for a tropical vacy, we can at least smell like we’ve been somewhere tropical. Check out Mighty Beauty’s picks for three great bath products that bring the tropics into your shower.

On the Budget End….

Caress Scarlet Blossom, around $4 at your local drugstore

Scarlet Blossom

The Caress Scarlet Blossom Body Wash is part of a relatively new collection of tropically scented washes from the brand available at your local drugstore. What we love about the scarlet blossom gel is that it has the strong scent of a higher priced gel (it’s the red lychee/patchouli oil combo) without the stinky sweet smell of other lower priced brands. Plus, the scent is great for layering with a light floral body spray that also has floral/musk undertones.

Shopping Tip: The shower gel is almost $2 cheaper at Target or Wal-Mart than at your local CVS/Walgreens.
