How Active Tinted Moisturizer Works

This tinted moisturizer is the ultimate time saver, adding a hint of coverage while helping your skin’s health.

This product has multiple uses:

  • Provides a non-chemical SPF barrier
  • Supplies antioxidant protection
  • Helps to firm skin
  • Assists in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

This moisturizer accomplishes its anti-aging function through its formulation which includes: Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, and Vitamin C Ester.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant which protects skin cells from skin damaging free radicals. ALA helps refine skin texture and also works to diminish imperfections, which include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Puffiness
  • Uneven skin tone

Like ALA, Vitamic C Ester is an antioxidant which diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. Vitamin C Ester also improves skin’s luminosity, while it also increases firmness and elasticity. Among its several functions, DMAE also works to lift, tighten and tone skin beginning to lose elasticity by providing contouring benefits.

How to Apply Active Tinted Moisturizer

The coverage Active Tinted Moisturizer provides is buildable, making an effective base for mineral powders. The moisturizer is creamy, effortless to apply, and easily absorbed.

Perricone’s Active Tinted Moisturizer Comes in 3 tints:

  • Light
  • Medium
  • Dark

For sheer, natural radiance, apply tinted moisturizer in even motions with fingers all over face and neck. If preferred, you may apply with a cosmetic sponge or makeup brush, but fingers provide heat that helps product smooth beautifully into skin.

Try Perricone for as little at $10.

Recent Reviews

Not too heavy – “Out of all the tinted moisturizers Ive tried Dr. Perricone’s active tinted moisturizer is my favorite. Its not heavy, oily nor greasy it gives you the right amount of coverage that is needed and the best part is that it includes SPF. Its a must have.”
From Total Beauty

Compliment-worthy – “Just like all moisturizers it takes a minute to dry. Just like foundation it looks better when finished off with a lightweight powder. Use it like regular foundation if you have oily skin and notice immediate differences. I was complimented twice on my skin this week and I just started using it this week.” —From Total Beauty

Does it all – “I do not need to use foundation anymore. This product does it all – adds moisture, color, suppleness, as well as a healthy glow. My skin looks dewy and alive. I get so many compliments on my skin when I use this moisturizer. Used others – no comparison – wasted my money!” —From

Another Perricone Must-have – “After getting my face looking terrific daily with a Dr. Perricone kit I use and love, I wanted to add a hint of color and decided to start at the top and try the Active Moisterizer [sic]. I was more than pleased…I love the way it’s absorbed completely and doesn’t just ‘sit’ on top of your skin like other products I’ve tried. It feels like you have nothing on at all but you have an inner glow that’s terrific. I highly recommend this product.” —From

  1. Everyone is correct this by far is was the best makeup I ever used and I used them all. Still looking for a replacement and nothing comes close.

  2. This was the absolute BEST moisturizer/foundation ever! For mature skin, it was ideal — I never looked “made-up” and it never settled into creases. It was beautiful! For the life of me, I cannot figure why it was discontinued, but then I am not a marketing exec. Are you waiting to bring it back “new and improved” at a pricier cost? Unfortunate.

  3. Why isn’t he bringing back this very popular product or selling the patents to someone who can give us back our tinted moisturizer!

  4. why why why did they discontinue this cult followed tinted moisturizer? what did they replace it with..and again..why?

  5. how do I order the skin care products for men?i never asked this question before.why was active tinted moisturizer discontinued?

  6. how do I order the skin care products for men?i never asked this question before

  7. how do I order the skin care products for men?

  8. Please bring this back. I beg you. I have searched and searched for a comparable product…they don’t exist.

  9. This was THE BEST PRODUCT of Dr Perricone. Tinted Moisturiser -02. I would pay anything to get it, but they have discontinued it. Why??? Anyone knows where I can buy a single left piece? There is nothing else like it on the market!

  10. I have loved Dr. Perricone’s Active Tinted Moisturizer
    for several valid reasons – it’s quick, it covers just
    beautifully, and my face looks and feels so soft
    and dewy! I appreciate the natural finish, and, of
    course, the treatment benefits all of the products
    provide. There has not been and will not be a day
    that goes by that Dr. Perricone’s products are not
    working their magic on my skin.

  11. Why have you discontinued it? I love it.

  12. I had a sample packett that I mixed with a little No Foundation Foundation and that allowed me to control the color of the No Foundation Foundation…and I LOVED the results…is there any way to get the Active Tinted Moisturizer???? Please! The No Foundation Foundation is too dark for me alone.

  13. I love a good tinted moisturizer because I don’t like a heavy foundation. I would love to try this to see if it would cover up what imperfections I have on my face strange things happen to your face when you get older and at 57 I need some help let me be a tester so I can try this it sounds perfect!!

  17. thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Hi Moderator,

    Can you please remove my surname from my previous comment.

  19. I have tried quite a few tinted moisturisers but they make my face look shiny and feel greasy. Still on the hunt for the right one. I don’t like to wear foundation nor have the time to do so. I would really love to try this product.

  20. Why can’t I find this product on the website? I love it and am trying to purchase another tube but it is not on the Perricone website….

  21. Love this!

  22. Love the use of tinted moisturizers for work not too much! just right!

  23. Previously used Oil of Olay tinted moisturizer but they no longer offer it so I am looking for a replacement. It was a little oily but my dry skin drinks it so it was especially nice in winter although I enjoyed it all year. I am 63 so the firming & chemical free SPF is impressive. It sounds like a winner.

  24. I would like to try this product. I have never had a NV Perricone product ever break me out, and cause a reaction. It is the best line of products ever made. I would love to be a tester!

  25. I’m 48 and have been looking for a tinted moisturizer that actually improves my skin while I wear it. Since moving to Florida last year I wear sun screen everyday. Would love to win this product so I can try a chemical free SPF product with the lovely addition of tint!

  26. i have had 3 kids in 3 years and something is deffinately wrong with my skin i have always used clinique products but currently r not working can you help me? ive spent toooooo much money on trying other things so i decided to ask for your samples thanks for taking time to read this !

  27. I have been following Dr. Pericome for several months and am intrested in his concept. I make most of my creams and am always told how young I look. (by decades.) I believe I could benefit even more by trying Dr. Pericome’s products. Please consider me to hepl with this line. Thank you, Ede

  28. I have suffered from Rosacea for a number of years and would love to try TM, and become a believer.

    Many Thanks

  29. I would like a skin firming product with sun protection. This one sounds perfect. Thank you.

  30. This is wonderful for someone who doesn’t want the feel of a heavy foundation and likes having products that multitask.

  31. I’ve been looking for quite some time for a treatment that isn’t heavy on my face. I have a very rare skin type that is dry but does not react well to creams and other facial treatments. I’m interested in giving this a try to see what kind of results I can get.

  32. I have been wanting to try a new skin moisturizer for a while now. My old lotion that I was using changed they way it was made and I am no longer happy with it. Just from all the reviews that everyone has posted that I am going to try it out. I will for sure post a review once I try it out. Thanks for all the helpful reviews!

  33. I love this product. i received some samples from another store and it worked so well on my oily skin. I couldn’t believe it. I also noticed my skin looking clearer and more radiant. I’d love to test more products, and would really love a full size of this Active Tinted Moisturizer!!!

  34. I have been looking for a tinted moisturizer with SPF and anti-aging benefits and this seems to have it all!
    I am a mom of 3 and if I could only have 1 product to use instead of 3 it save me time…..and money.

  35. This sounds like the perfect thing to help keep my face moisturized, provide some sun protection, and provide a bit of color. I have enlarged pores that I can’t seem to get rid of, also many fine lines, puffyness and shadows that could benefit from this moisturizer. Normal makeup looks horrendous, and I really hate to wear it. So anything that will help me look better is a blessing!

  36. I think this would be the PERFECT thing for me. I don’t usually wear makeup, but I do need a product that will help to even out my skin tone. This just might do the trick!

  37. I have been using Cover Girl tinted moisturizer for several years. It is a good product and it helps diminish the large pores on my nose and even out my ruddy skin tone. It even makes my crepy neck less noticable.It is affordable also. Will your product compare to or exceed the perfomance of covergirl?

  38. I live in the foothills of Boise, Idaho and spend a lot of time running, hiking and biking the trails. I have tried several tinted sunscreens/moisturizers and have not found one that’s been suitable to my skin, or not greasy. Sweating and greasy doin’t mix. I’d love to give it a try!

  39. My plan is to purchase the (light) tinted moisturizer right now. I am 52 with combination skin that is sensitive. I have been using a product that dries my oily areas/supposed to conceal my enlarged pores and occasional zits (such as my nose and chin) but it makes my skin red and scaly. Of course the area around my eyes is quite dry. Hopefully, this product will work on days where I can get away with less coverage such as the weekends.

  40. Trying the tinted moisturizer may help cover dicoloration, redness, and improve skin health.

  41. I have been a long time fan of Arbonne,Since noticing the results from friends and family I am hooked.I love everything Dr.Perricone.I have always been told I am a walking advertisement board,ask me and I will tell you what my secret is.

  42. I just tried some and the tinted moisturizer was excellent. I used a little of my girlfriends from her tube and would love to try a same of it first before purchasing a full tube.

  43. Please pick me to win the TM I need sun protection with the added benefits!!~
