When Sunscreen Meets Makeup – 6 Tinted SPFs

When Sunscreen Meets Makeup – 6 Tinted SPFs

Coverage + Hydration + Protection in one – great for busy mornings, perfect for minimal makeup and even better for streamlining your summer suitcase! Here are five tinted SPFs that we’ve been using at the #houseofeldridge

Heliocare Gel cream Color SPF50
I discovered this last year and have used and recommended it a lot since then. It’s got a nice level of coverage – subtly perfecting and enough to cover small blemishes. The gel-like texture is good for all skin types but I find the finish a little too dewy for my oily/combo skin so I’ll often use powder on top to cut any unwanted shine. As well as UV protection from triazines and triazines (I talk more about these highly rated sunscreen ingredients in my film here) the formula contains antioxidants to help stop free radicals reaping havoc. Available here in 2 shades (as a guide, the Light shade matches my skin tone and Brown works well on olive skin tones).

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue SPF30
This gives very light, dewy coverage and contains good skin emollients such as glycerin, coconut alkanes, and squalane, so it’s a great option for normal-to-dry skin who like light colour and coverage (you can team with some pinpoint concealing on any obvious spots or blemishes). The protection here is mineral based on titanium dioxide. It also comes in a good range of shades to suit all skin tones. 

Sisley Tinted Sun Care Youth Protector SPF30
This mineral SPF has more of a medium coverage (one of my testers with redness around her cheeks found it covered that well) and a very luminous, glowy finish. This, plus the fact that the slightly dense, almost balm-like formula contains nourishing ingredients like camellia and shea butter oils, makes it great for drier skin types. It’s definitely more of an investment skincare buy… but if it’s any consolation a little really does go a long way!
