Summer is coming, so for me that means finding ways to make my makeup routine easy and sweat-proof. I’m looking for a base that looks like skin but also covers and lasts all day – sounds impossible to find right? Not correct. introduction into the Caliray Freedreaming Skin Wellness Diffusing Tint.
If you’ve never heard of Caliray, here’s what you should know. Unlike the myriad of famous beauty brands out there, Caliray was founded by a beauty veteran Wende Zomnir (aka the founder of Urban Decay). However, Caliray is a completely different vibe than Urban Decay. Caliray has a breezy, beachy, very SoCal feel to its packaging and formulas. The brand is all about lightweight, easy-to-use beauty products, and that’s where this skin tone falls.
Featuring a color palette of 10 shades, this skin tint keeps skin long lasting but better formula. Let me explain, inside the squeeze tube are skin-nourishing ingredients like hydrating prickly pear extract, brightening vitamin C, and lesser-known ingredients triglycerides and humectant glycol (say those three times as fast).
To find out more, I turned to cosmetic chemist Ginger King, who got me back into high school chemistry class. “Triglycerides are naturally present in our skin, so it’s a natural emollient to help keep skin hydrated, while hydrating glycols help retain moisture on the skin,” she says. King added that both ingredients can add a glowing glow to a complexion product. As a user of the product, this made me happy, it was nice to know that while this formula keeps me covered and glowing, it also benefited the overall health of my skin.
