A huge “thank-you” goes out to Lani and Marissa, the two fabulous geniuses I’ve gotten to personally cocktail with from theBalm. theBalm sent out Megsmakeup some of their amazing BalmShelter for review.

Before our wonderful lunch ended at the very swish “Ivy”, Marissa handed me a tube of BalmShelter tinted moisturizer. She told me that it wasn’t out in the stores yet but she had a sample in my shade on her. She gave it to me for a sneak preview! I dropped it into my purse, It was about a week later when one morning I was searching for my car keys and I found the tube hidden in the bottom. Before BalmShelter had a chance to get lost in the Bermuda Triangle that is disquised as a Chanel purse-I placed it on my bathroom sink so I wouldn’t forget to try it.

I am an LA stereotype. I drive a cherry red convertible. I love driving around with the top down. A very famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon chewed me out for driving with the top down while the sun was still out. He said “I mean it, do not drive around before 6pm with the top down. I know you. You’re never going to put sunscreen on everyday”. I was so dedicated I even put a bottle of sunscreen in my glove department. I used it maybe twice. Like after I could see the burn starting to set on my cheeks. I’m glad reading me is so difficult. Shoot, what’s the fun of a convertible if you can’t put the top down and enjoy the sunshine?

This is why BalmShelter is one product I have a nervous breakdown without. It is superb! I don’t normally give such a push..But..YOU NEED THIS! It is the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used and..TADAH! HAS SPF 18! No needing moisturizer, foundation, and then a topping of sunscreen. I mean it, it’s so convenient and it really makes you look fabulous. I reach for it every single day! How’s that for an endorsement! I mean, ladies, I have some serious products to choose from and this makes the cut daily!

After my BalmShelter experience, I wanted to shout its praises out to anyone that woud listen! Lani was kind enough to answer my pleas and let me spread the love to our reviewers.

Here’s what theBalm says about their wonderful BalmShelter…“A superior formulation that provides long lasting moisture, BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer gives you the perfect polished look while leaving your skin feeling silky.What else you need to know: BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer SPF 18 has Broad Spectrum protection, which means it protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

Ladies, let me know if BalmShelter has you trading in your wheels for one that lets the wind in your hair and the sunshine on your face!
