This product has multiple uses:

  • Provides a non-chemical SPF barrier

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.

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

  7. I’d love to try this……I’d need light. The benefits described are more than I thought I could expect from a tinted moisturizer! The fact that it offers lightweight coverage and a non-chemical sunscreen appeals to me. I’m oily but, want anti-aging ingredients. This seems to have it all! Thank you.

  9. i would love to try this tinted moisturizer, the spf is a plus also. i would like to try the one with tint 2

  10. Would love to try your products. I had a precancerous spot on my nose removed a month ago, and the dr. stressed the importance of never going without a SPF protection!! I can be so lax with that, so I’m deffinitely looking for products with it built in. Also, I babysit for a 6 month old and a 2 year old, and don’t have time for alot of ME time…

  11. It has everything I need, moisturizer, sunscreen and just enough color so I can wear it alone and if I want to add foundation, it makes a great base.

  12. I think this is a product that would suit
    my needs.

  13. I love the fact that this product provides a non-chemical SPF barrier, offers a little coverage and firms the skin at the same time. This would be perfect for the Forty Something Bride on casual days.

  14. I have been searching for a tinted moisturizer and I would love to try this product! It seems to be exactly what I have been looking for.

  15. oops forgot to tell you what shade I needed – would need light.

  16. Would love to try this product – have used other Perricone products in the past

  17. I have never tried this moisturizer but I am very interested in trying it. I have very fair skin and I love being in the sun ~ not a good combination. Many products irritate my skin so I have to be careful about what sunscreens I use. I would love to be a tester for this one.

  18. I would love to try your Active Tinted Moisturizer! I hate the “made up” look of most foundations and this sounds like the cure!

  19. I would be interested to try this. I have tried multiple tinted moisturizers in the past, with no luck. I am very fair skinned, and would like to see if this product is my answer.

  20. Tinted moisturizer is perfect for me. I am 49 but have never really used foundation. I appreciate how this product will smooth out my skin tones without looking too “made up”. As I increasingly need a daily moisturizer for my aging skin, the added tint is a bonus.

  21. I like the look of makeup on other people, but have trouble taking the time or being satisfied with cosmetics, so I am very interested in a moisturiser that is tinted as well as a sunscreen. Very inovative. Thank you for the opportunity to try this product.

  22. This sounds like the answer I’ve been looking for. How do I cut down my time spent on my morning routine? This product could help me get out the door faster!

  23. [...] Active Tinted Moisturizer, which provides just a hint of color, is formulated with ALA and Vitamin C Ester and serves as a [...]

  24. I have blotchy skin, but don’t like to wear heavy makeups – this sounds like JUST THE THING I NEED to go out into the world with confidence!

  25. I’ve bounced around with tinted moisturizers and lightweight foundations, but this product is the best of both worlds! My skin looks great now, and when applied this gives my skin just the right dewy and healthful appearance! I love that when I wash my face off at night; I still look like I have great skin! It’s a good confidence booster ;)

  26. I have very sensitive skin so have a hard time finding a tinted moisturizer that actually DOES what is SAYS instead of looking either blotchy or making me break out. I would be thrilled to try this product because of that fact and also because I want to get away from using any type of foundation, so if this gives your face a smooth look, is available for sensitive skin and has a healthy-natural looking tint plus has anti-aging in it?! Wow! I’ve GOT to try this!!

  27. I have used Active Tint Mosturizer from the time it was first available – would never use anything else and I am 70!!

  28. I have been looking for a tinted moisturizer to cover slight redness from Rosaceea. Something easy and quick to apply with enough coverage to make my face look natural. I’m so glad you have this product! Thank you so much!

  29. I am so happy that you now have a tinted moisturizer. Through the years I have really been using these more than regular foundation which tends to be too heavy for everyday wear. I would love to test this product and think I would be a great candidate because I have used many brands of tinted moisturizers.

  30. i would just LOVE to become a tester, My face is just full of wrinkles from overuse of tanning beds and the sun. The opportunity woould be just like a dream. My first niece is getting married in May, and I would love to look wonderful for her. I am 62yrs old and have never done anything like this before. PLeASE pick me for a tester. Thank you

  31. With Mom (me) getting close to the big 50 and two teenage daughers, we would love to be able to test your products!
    I have heard wonderful things about Perricone!

  32. Oh wow! I just blogged how I have always used tinted moisturizer and wanted to try the new No Foundation Foundation (which I still do)! But this product would be great for my days when I work ( I clean for a living) since I wouldn’t need as much coverage on those days. I would LOVE to try this.

  33. I have great skin I just like some light coverage for evenness and moisture for my normal/dry in the winter skin with some SPF or course, is this product any good?

  34. I have never used a tinted moisturizer before…and I would really like to try Perricone as my first. This product sounds like it has everything I would be looking for and more: non-chemical SPF, minimizes fine lines, firms skin, etc.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win this product! Also, I would just love to be a product tester for Perricone MD — I would be more than happy to share my honest opinions.

  35. [...] Limit sun damage by wearing sunscreen with at least an SPF 15 every day. Also, limit the time in the sun. One easy way to get the sun protection you need is to use a moisturizer that includes SPF, such as Dr. Perricone’s Active Tinted Moisturizer. [...]

  36. I got a sample of this and just love the way it sets on my face. I apply some mineral powder and blush and it sets everything beautifully. I tried the medium and it is just right.

  37. I would like to try this products but with only three shades I don’t know if the medium or dark would best for me.
    I am Latin American with olive skin color with yellow undertone. I have been using Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer but it might be just a little too dark.

  38. I used up every bit of the tinted moisturizer sample I’ve got. Love it! It makes my skin look glowing, natural looking.

  39. This would be perfect for me, as I don’t need enough makeup to wear foundation everyday, but still have discoloration and the start of fine lines that I’d like to cover and treat!! The ultimate goal would be to be able to use a tinted moisturizer alone and feel polished.

  40. i love a product that multi tasks. very often i find that moisturizer and a foundation are too heavy for my face. it would be nice if i could combine both. I also love that you only have 3 shades- so much easier to figure out which one i need. I am Light by the way :)

  41. [...] Perricone’s Active Tinted Moisturizer can be used daily to soften skin. It can be used as a base before applying makeup. The lightweight, [...]

  42. I just ordered the tinted moisturizer, I can’t wait to try it !!

  43. The many tinted moisturizers I’ve tried have varied greatly. Some have too little tint, others are too thick and dark. I’d like to try this one to see how it looks on. Also, I’m always looking for anti-aging and moisturizing products that will not trigger or worsen my Rosacea. I wonder how this one measures up.

  44. I would LOVE to try this product..I have a VERY active toddler so being able to use a 2 n 1 would help make the most of my time.

  45. I was using a different companys version of this product (popular, spendy brand) and it is nothing more than a cheap, knock-off (that definitely does NOT do what they claim.)

    I would LOVE to try THE REAL DEAL!

  46. I love this moisturizer. It is the best of both worlds as it is good for your skin yet also gives you a bit of an aesthetic boost!

  47. I have used this wonderful product for about 3 years!
    It is simple to use & simply the BEST tinted moisturizer!

  48. This product sounds fantastic! I dont want to wear make-up anymore and just to use this plus have the benefits is well worth it!

  49. I love this product. I wanted to get away from heavy liquid skin products and started to use the active tinted mositurizer. It is like a miracle on my skin and not only lasts the day through but gives my skin a youthful, moist look. It has become a must in my daily routine.

  50. I tried this product once and I loved it. There is nothing like it and even without the other products I was convinced that there is nothing on the market that could compare. This is not a gimmick. This is a life changing product based on knowledge and truth. It is like no other and I can say that with confidence after using one tube of the tinted moisturizer. When I am able I will be trying other products. My aging skin knows the difference. I would believe everything that Dr Perricone says about his products because I am convinced that he is a gift to those of us who are aging and have skin problems that beg a solution. Who wouldn’t want to test these product? They must all be excellent!
