The 9 Best Clean Skin Tints With SPF
Dr. Jart+ CicapairTiger Grass Camo Drops | Shown above These unique drops gives you SPF 35 coverage in a lightweight serum that takes skin redness to a tame-looking beige. Skin redness can be supported in many ways, but in a pinch, these skin calming drops (thanks to tiger grass) can provide color correction right along with your sun protection.
SAIE Slip Tint | Glowy, sheer products like this one are what put SAIE on the map and we can’t get enough. Their best-selling tinted moisturizer has SPF 35 protection and nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, licorice root and pansy flower that pack a skincare punch. Wear alone for a walk outside or pat on over makeup for extra glow and SPF.
Iris & Romeo Weekend Skin SPF 50 | Not only does this award-winning clean formula include time-stabilized vitamin C and niacinamide to neutralize free radicals, the transparent mineral SPF imparts the most luminous, warm glow on every skin tone. Weekend Skin is the lazy girl’s dream formula for every day of the week.
YSE Beauty SPF 30 Primer Skin Glow | Molly Sim’s new skincare collection launch is all it’s hyped up to be. Get dewy skin with YSE Beauty’s new primer designed to allow you to layer in SPF under makeup or alone with little fuss. Remarkably unsticky for those who don’t like typical sunscreen textures and packed with niacinamide, spirulina extract, and sodium hyaluronate.
Ilia Super Serum SPF 40 | This skin tint from beloved clean beauty brand ILIA is probably the most popular of all on the market right now. It’s won awards for its perfect combo of skincare, makeup and SPF and with 30 shades available it can truly support every skin tone. Editor’s note: the rich, dewy texture is oil-free but super-creamy and may be most ideal for skin on the dry side.
Supergoop Glowscreen SPF 40 | Days spent in front of the computer can also benefit from this hydrating, broad-spectrum formula from one of our fave clean sunscreen brands. The blue-light protection from cocoa peptides leaves a pearlescent finish for super glowy skin.
Kosas DreamBeam SPF 40 | You’ve heard us rave about peptides in skincare before, so it is not surprise that we love this clean, silicone-free formula from Kosas. Not only does this mineral sunscreen protect with zinc and hydrate with hyaluronic acid, but the sunscreen’s peptides and ceramides visibly plump skin and leave it feeling super soft!
Suntegrity 5-in-1 Sunscreen | When it comes to tinted moisturizers with SPF and serious skincare benefits, this one from Suntegrity is the OG! Suntegrity’s founder is all about skin health and a prevention-focused lifestyle. The sheer formula is packed with hydrating and protective natural ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, cucumber and green tea. It won’t weigh down skin for those who like a light product.
Alleyoop Sunsational SPF 50 | Focused on efficient skincare and multitasking products, this brand’s been capturing our attention lately! Their clean skin tint goes on with the texture of a good foundation with niacinamide and jojoba esters to deeply hydrate and protect, plus buildable coverage so you can easily skip your foundation.
