Tinted Sunscreen: the easiest way to wear SPF



I know that a lot of people rely on SPF in their foundation for year round coverage, but in Summer I just don't think it's enough. A lot of brands have jumped on board to offer the reverse: sunscreen with a little colour and coverage - a clever, practical solution. 

Tinted sunscreen is the way to go for a light coverage with instant protection, especially good for anyone loathe to wear sunscreen. It just couldn't be easier.

These formulas can be worn alone, under foundation or paired with concealer, depending on how much coverage you need. I've worn them all three ways on different occasions and apply mine over my regular skincare.

Swatches from bottom up: La Roche Posay Anthelios XL BB, La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine, Eucerin CC in Fair. 

Three of the best I've tried are La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF50+ Tinted BB Cream (dry skin) and Tinted Anti Shine (combo/oily) formulas. Eucerin CC Cream SPF50 in Fair is my paler Winter skin option. This gives coverage similar to a light foundation, as does LRP Anti-shine, while the LRP BB is more sheer. Eucerin gives a satin finish, Anti-shine is very matte and the BB dewy. 

I'm currently using La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Tinted BB Cream, which looks dark in the swatch, but blended, pairs perfectly with a (self) tanned body. It's also been great on holiday when I didn't want to wear makeup OR look completely washed out.


PS you're not seeing things... I had to republish this post as it somehow backdated itself!
