This is a great product by Lancome. I came across it many years ago and have been using it ever since. It's actually one of the only make-up type products that I have not switched or strayed from even once. It's tried and true and I completely stand by it. I used to use products like foundation that were heavy on my skin, without any protection, and would usually end up causing breakouts on my face. Lancome Imanance is lightweight, and protects your skin from sun with SPF, and the pollutants in air. It comes in several shades and will blend with your skin so it looks like your wearing nothing at all, and it will feel like your wearing nothing at all. But what you've really got on is a pollution barrier, SPF 15, and anti-oxidants all working to protect you.

Lancome refers to this product as tinted moisturizer. The tint/shade I wear is called Tawny (Intensity II) and it's for light to medium tan skin. There's also a shade called Bisque (Intensity I) for those with fairer, lighter skin tones, Cannelle (Intensity III) medium to dark tan skin, and then finally Bronze (Intensity IV) which is the darkest shade for those with deep rich skin tones.
Lancome Imanance is a little on the expensive side and can be purchased at many department stores like Macy's or Sak's, Bloomingdales, etc. One thing I've started doing to make it last even longer than before, I put a dab of the Lancome moisturizer onto the make-up applicator, then I take my Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer and put it together with the Lancome. I mix the two together and apply as usual. This works and adds a bit more radiant shine to your face (if you like that kind of thing). Plus, I can pretty much guarantee at this point your face will not get dried out. With the combination of both of these products, I've noticed that my skin tone has started to even out and I swear my skin looks healthier than ever.
I find that even though it does cost a bit of money, it'll last you a very long time and is totally worth it! You can get this product in the department stores like those mentioned above for around $43 but you can also pick it up on Ebay for half the cost!
