Estethician's 10 Best Tinted Sunscreens. These cover acne and don’t leave a white cast!

Let's go over Cassandra's top picks for tinted sunscreens! These will change your morning routine, give you a glow, hydration, and sun protection without white cast. Cassandra loves these tinted SPFs because they act like concealers and skincare combined.

For Cassandra, sometimes it gets to a point where her eyes get puffy and purple. So, she's found the following tinted sunscreens recommended by dermatologists, and in this blog, she's sharing them with you!

Let’s start with the sunscreens that are best for the under-eye area. What makes a sunscreen good for the under eye are? Well, for one, you do not want it to sting your eyeballs, and you want it to have ingredients that will disguise discoloration and puffiness.

Supergoop! Zinc Sunscreen SPF 40 Sunscreen - $44 

Dr. Dray recommended this to Cassandra, and she told her how great it is for the  under eyes. It almost instantly brightens the undereye area. You can also put this on the eyelids, and it doesn’t crease up. You can use it all over your face, and it keeps you protected and neutralizes discoloration.

This is a fantastic option for the sensitive eye area. It’s a little more expensive for the small amount that you use, but this is worth it. 

This is slightly hydrating, but it’s also vegan, cruelty free, and SPF 40. 


Sunbetter SPF 68 Sunscreen Compact -  $65 



This is a wonderful product, but remember, the number 68 is simply a measure of how soon you have to reapply a sunscreen. This is a very thick sunscreen, and you have to make sure it works for your skin tone. For example, this works as more of a contour for Cassandra. They do have a version that’s more sheer. This works if you’re looking for a sunscreen that is more sheer. 


Thinksport Everyday Face SPF 30+ Sunscreen - $16.49 


While the Sunscreen Compact is an expensive choice, you can find the Thinksport on  Amazon for $13 when it’s on sale. This is a very pigmented sunscreen. It’s fluffy, and the coverage is good. While it’s not the darkest sunscreen, it definitely has a tint. All in all, it blends beautifully, and it's very affordable. So, if you wanted to use this as an everyday, pillowy foundation, you could. There’s a little bit of tackiness so it works very well during the winter. But during the summer, it serves as more of a highlight for oily skin.

Colorscience All Calm Clinical Redness Corrector - $155 


This SPF wasmade by experts. It's been ophthalmologist and dermatologist approved. This is made for rosacea, and it definitely helps with redness. Cassandra wouldn't say this is as thick as a concealer, but it can definitely help build consistent layers when applying makeup. 

If you're someone who struggles with rosacea or redness, this helps prevent flares, and it even helps to color correct. You can find cheaper alternatives, but this is one of the best SPF 50 options.


Cyberderm Simply Zinc Ultra SPF 50 - $62.50 

This brand is from Canada, and it’s the darkest tinted sunscreen that Cassandra could find. It's a little too red for Cassandra, but this doesn’t turn purple or gray on richly melanated skin. So, for those with richly melanated skin, it has been a go to. Plus, it's a mineral sunscreen. So, it does better for people who have sensitivities to chemical ingredients like avobenzone or oxybenzone.


Sunbetter Tone Smart SPF 75 - $75 

This is a basically an SPF foundation, and it works wonderfully for wrinkles. This does not get stuck in wrinkles the way a lot of other products do, and it’s such a great tinted option for mature skin. But even if you don’t have mature skin, you can use this. It's just that this product is very hydrating, and mature skin normally requires more hydration. Moreover, this does not contain shimmer which also can get stuck in fine lines. So, when you blend this in, it works very well for fine lines.


Kosas DreamBeam Mineral Sunscreen - $40

This sunscreen is probably best for combo skin, and it probably has the lightest texture out of all of these recommendations. This sunscreen kind of feels like a BB cream or CC cream. Or better yet, it feels like the combination of a moisturizer and foundation. It doesn’t give as much coverage as some of the others, but it does color correct. It kind of neutralizes the redness and evens out the skin tone. 

Also, it gives you a light dewy glow while simultaneously feeling like a tinted moisturizer. This also has amazing ingredients. It has peptides, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and allantoin. This product is truly a sunscreen, a hydrating skin repairing serum, a BB cream, and a tinted moisturizer all in one.

Iris & Romeo Weekend Skin SPF 50 - $50

If you’re looking for a tinted sunscreen with coverage, this is the best product that Cassandra could recommend. This is not just an SPF 50, it’s also an SPF 50 and a dewy glowy foundation. Iris & Romeo wanted to create an SPF that could replace foundation and provide skincare benefits. This is more dewy and glowy, and it does not offer a matte finish. Cassandra is not sure if it’s waterproof, but she did use it in a pool one time, and it turned out fine.

Well, which one should you pick. Well ultimately, whatever feels best for you, your wallet, supports your skin’s daily needs, and helps you feel amazing is the best choice.
