Tinted sunscreen protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while also giving you a little colour and coverage. With formulas available in an array of shades and finishes, there’s one for every preference and skin tone. So if you love the convenience of an all-in-one product, it can easily replace your usual foundation, BB cream, CC cream or tinted moisturizer.

It’s also ideal for anyone who wants to avoid the notorious white cast associated with mineral sunscreen. You can either wear it on its own or layer it over another sunscreen to double up on your protection and reduce any whitening effect.

And the best part? Just like mineral sunscreens, tinted sunscreens are physical blockers—so they don’t contain any “chemical” UV filters. Instead, they’re made with the minerals zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (which are safer and more effective), along with iron oxide pigments to impart a tint. 

Below, find out exactly what I look for in a tinted sunscreen, and my top product picks of the year.
