Advanced protection. Sheer perfecting colour. TESTED IN LONDON, NEW YORK AND HONG KONG


No7 is committed to developing, updating and bettering their skincare solutions to help women unlock their potential and look and feel their best selves, every day. More than ever, women are looking for multitasking products that not only put them in control of how they show up, but work magic on protecting the skin. With that in mind, this September, No7 is launching the NEW City Light Tinted Moisturiser.

The skin perfecting tinted moisturiser not only quenches thirsty skin, but is also packed full with skin loving ingredients and No7s innovative Double Defence technology. The patent pending technology contains a powerful antioxidant complex designed to boost the skin’s natural defences and neutralise damaging free radicals.

Combined with No7’s unbeatable 5* UVA technology, SPF 15 and sheer, light diffusing pigment- it’s a killer combination. Not only does it enhance radiance, and leave a confidence boosting flawless complexion - it’s the perfect shield against environmental aggressors that can cause the skin to age. Available in three shades (fair, medium and medium/dark) that span across the Match Made true skin colours, there is a suitable shade for everyone.

Dr Mike BellSkincare Scientific Advisor for Boots UK, says:

“Protecting your skin from the sun and daily environmental stresses is really important, particularly if you want to proactively delay the signs of ageing. No7’s most advanced daily protection technology combines SPF 15, unbeatable 5*UVA protection with a new broad spectrum anti-oxidant complex containing a cocktail of protecting ingredients including Ginseng, Mulberry, Vitamins C & E and Rice Peptides - these skincare superheroes work hard to defend the skin, helping to delay the ageing process” 


What better way to show the confidence No7 has in the advanced daily protection City Light delivers, than to test it with customers in some of the most polluted cities in the world!

We tried and tested the formula with women who lived and worked in London, New York and Hong Kong to make sure City Light performed in the harsh city environments. The women tested aged from 18-80 years old and were of varying skin tones and ethnicities.


The No7 City Light Tinted Moisturiser £12.50 is available in Boots and on from 28th September 2016

Notes to editors

Patented Double Defence technology contains:

-          Ginseng and Mulberry, rich in polyphenols which are effective against superoxides produced in skin when exposed to sunlight or pollution.

-          Vitamin C, effective against ozone, which is formed from ultraviolet light and atmospheric electrical discharges.

-          Lipochroman and Vitamin E which are effective against singlet oxygen, an incredibly damaging free radical produced by UVA exposure.

-          Rice peptides and Alfalfa, which are effective inhibitors of age-accelerating enzymes (MMPs) in the skin. These enzymes are produced in the skin to help it remodel and repair after damage. They degrade breakdown fragments, playing the role of housekeepers and allowing proper repair to follow. In ageing, however, these enzymes become hyperactive breaking down healthy skin components such as collagen.
