Getting Summer-Ready: The Best Tinted Sunscreens That You’ll Want On Your Summer Holiday


Most of us are on permanent stand-by with moisturisers, concealers, powder and liquid foundation and almost every other kind of face make-up base – just in case. However, this lesser known and used summer beauty product is one we should all be getting into for a safe, yet flawless beach-ready make-up look.

Tinted sunscreens are where it’s at for make-up free protection in the summer, with just a little bit of coverage. With a great selection now available on the market, there are liquids and powder formats of this handy sun protection and finishes to suit all skin types. This week, we looked at some of the hottest options on the market right now.


Kiehl’s | Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream Sunscreen

This three-in-one product from Kiehl’s doesn’t just provide sunscreen protection at SPF 50. It’s specially developed formula also conceals blemishes with a soft, relatively sheer coverage and also actively works to correct skin imperfections at the same time. Thanks to the high levels of vitamin C included in the ingredients list, this correction starts to work immediately and also continues to work over time, with regular usage.
