The Best Tinted Sunscreens
La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur Instant Oil-Absorbing Coverage BB Cream
Buy It: $29.99; amazon.com
If your main quandary with sunscreen is an oily sheen, this option from French drugstore staple La Roche-Posay not only keeps you matte for hours, it also works as a primer under a more pigmented tinted moisturizer for a super smooth appearance. Bonus: it’s available at many stateside Target stores now.
CANE + AUSTIN Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Buy It: $56; sephora.com
While the price tag might give you the vapors, this product does everything it promises and more. In fact, I once wore it alone on a steamy day in New Orleans, and was shocked to see that it still kept me as fresh looking as when I left my hotel room with a my-skin-but-better finish. The tube is tiny, but lasted me more than a couple months.
Eau Thermale Avène High Protection Complexion SPF 50+ Correcting Shield
Buy It: $36; dermstore.com
For those months when your skin may be drier but the sun’s rays still as fierce, this sunscreen produces mega dewy results with a skyhigh SPF to boot. Make this your go-to for outdoor tailgates and football games.
Aveeno Positively Radiant CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Buy It: $13; amazon.com
For a drugstore dupe that keeps your skin looking even and moisturized along with a decent SPF count, Aveeno’s CC cream works wonders, especially if you’re prone to allergies or have sensitive skin.
Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Buy It: $38; sephora.com
This tube is worth making space in your tote bag for. While I swipe it on alone in the morning most days (along with a few dabs of rms beauty’s Buruti Bronzer and Lip2Cheek), it also goes on perfectly over the day’s leftover look for a touch-up in the car or a restaurant bathroom. Although it only comes in one shade, it’s sheer enough to match between light and medium skin tones.
