Easy breezy summer makeup!

We are loving the Sorme BB “Tint and Treat” Cream as our go-to summer makeup essential!  It offers sheer coverage and great sunscreen protection (SPF 30) while going on smooth, never sticky and never creasing.   Tint and Treat baths the skin in pure argan oil, aloe, chamomile (plus an antioxidant formulation of ingredients that include rosemary, passion fruit and papaya) but is light enough for all skin types.  In fact, we’ve experienced fewer breakouts while using it.

Get radiant skin from the Beverly Hills skincare line, Sorme!  Available in 4 shades:
