These lightweight formulas will have you frustrated that you didn’t locate these goodies sooner!
If you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon yet, trust me after reading this, you’ll be converted! Do you ever feel hot, sticky and just oily whenever you wear your usual makeup in the summer? It’s almost like you can’t wait to take it off and let your skin breathe! These tinted sunscreens are the solution to your problems, and because they’re already a favourite in many others summer routines, they’re flying off the shelves!
They’re my go-to summer solution for countless reasons! Not only do they provide broad-spectrum sun protection (which is so important), even out skin tone and camouflage imperfections, they’re also quick and easy to use when you’re in a rush. Who want’s to sit at their dressing tables for ages in 30 degrees plus heat? Not me! These super lightweight, three-in-one formulas are ideal for no-makeup makeup and the more fresh-faced look all of us crave in the summer months, without getting sun burnt!
I know what you’re thinking. Sunscreen never matches my skin tone, their claims are usually way off. They have ‘limited ranges’ or ‘universal shade’, what even is that? One size never fits all, and these groundbreaking products won’t ever look ashy or orangey on your skin! All you have to do is pick your shade!
For Buildable Coverage: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser SPF30, £30 ($33)

This oil-free tinted moisturiser (perfect for acne sufferers), will keep your skin protected from the sun’s harmful rays whilst balancing oil production and evening out skin tone. The formula also boasts mineral electrolytes that replenish and balance the skin’s moisture levels, as well as squalane for an extra hit of hydration. The lightweight cream is also easily buildable, taking you from sheer to medium coverage with a dewy, natural skin finish. This product will definitely come to your rescue with its superhero ingredients!
For Uneven Skin Tone: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser SPF30, £31 ($45)
Shade range: 12
Sun protection: SPF 30
Lightweight, SPF protection, skin-correcting and radiant… What does this dreamy product not do?! This tinted moisturiser ticks every box, even the boxes you didn’t even need ticking! Providing a light veil of coverage, it’ll instantly reduce the appearance of uneven tone and soften imperfections and fine lines. All the while, the vitamin C and kopara content will work to brighten the skin, lessening dark spots and hyperpigmentation over time (with continual use). Plus, it’s dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic so it won’t block your pores. Perfect again for acne sufferers! I love it as it leaves your skin with a natural, radiant glow. If you know me well, you know I LOVE a glow!
For Sensitive Skin: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tint Moisturiser SPF 30, £28 ($28)
Shade range: 10
Sun protection: SPF 30
This tinted moisturiser claims a spot on my favourites list for a number of reasons. Firstly, the lightweight formula provides SPF 30 and it has some serious skincare benefits. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, colloidal oatmeal, and allantoin, it’ll hydrate, reduce redness, calm inflammation, and soothe sensitive skin. The formula also contains natural mineral pigments and micro-pearls to enhance the skin’s natural radiance and provide buildable, clean coverage. Simple enough for the most sensitive of skin!

Shade range: 18
Sun protection: SPF 40
If you have dry skin or prefer a dewy skin finish, this tinted SPF serum is about to become your bestie. First and most importantly, it offers SPF 40 coverage with non-Nano zinc oxide to shield your skin from UVA, UVB, UVC, blue light, and infrared rays. I also appreciate the 18 shade offering that caters to both fair and deep skin tones.
The lightweight formula features a unique blend of hyaluronic acid, brightening niacinamide, and moisturizing squalane to leave your skin looking plump while softening the appearance of fines lines. Another major bonus? It applies like a dream and blends out seamlessly. Plus, it’s non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores – great again for acne sufferers!
