I feel like “tinted moisturizers” are having a moment. Especially now that we’re all home and not wanting a full coverage face of makeup. They add a nice even layer to the skin without feeling like you have something super heavy on it. In general, they’re lighter coverage than foundation and tend to have additional skin benefits (other than just coverage).
So to help you guys out in your clean tinted moisturizer journey, I thought I’d round up my favorite natural tinted moisturizers and what you should be looking for in products.
Types of Tinted Moisturizers
“Tinted moisturizer” is pretty much a broad term for a light layer coverage skincare product. They often go by a couple of different names and occasionally also have SPF (woot!). You’ll notice a lot of crossover with my natural facial sunscreen post because many tinted moisturizers include SPF and many facial sunscreens have a layer of coverage. Twice the bang for your buck! Let’s look at a couple different names for natural tinted moisturizers.
Tinted moisturizer – This is exactly as it sounds: face moisturizer with a tint. It’s typically pretty sheer coverage and depending on the product, may or may not include SPF.
Skin tints – Basically another name for tinted moisturizer that has gained popularity in the last few years.
BB Cream – Remember around five years ago when BB creams were all the rage?! BB creams provide a little coverage while also benefitting the skin with added antioxidants and SPF.
CC Cream – The “cc” in CC cream stands for color correcting! CC creams usually provide benefits to your skin as well as color correcting properties. If you have redness or any discoloration of the skin, this will balance out your skin tone!

The Best Natural Tinted Moisturizers
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint
This has become my go-to product of the summer! ILIA released this earlier this year and I absolutely love the light-weight formula, skin benefits and SPF 40! It is very sheer and dewy so don’t expect full coverage but it definitely helps to even out any redness. If you tend to have oily skin you will likely want a setting powder for this product but my dry skin loves it.
Suntegrity Impeccable Skin
If you’re looking for something with slightly more coverage than the ILIA skin tint, you will love the Suntegrity Impeccable Skin. It’s not quite a foundation but does definitely even things out. It’s also oil-free if that’s your thing is dries down a lot more than the ILIA skin tint so best for people who tend to have more oily-combination skin.

Juice Beauty CC Cream
I mentioned this in my facial sunscreen but but this is actually my beach day sunscreen but also a great CC cream for everyday use. It does contain coconut oil which is comedogenic for certain skin types BUT I personally haven’t found it correlates with any of my breakouts. That being said, it is reef-safe and has anti-aging benefits that none of the other facial sunscreens on this list have so it’s kind of a double-whammy. I will reapply it throughout the day but I trust that I won’t burn or overexpose my skin when wearing this.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil
For anyone who loves a good oil moisturizer but wants a little bit of coverage you will love this product. It’s definitely a wet consistency but it does dry down a lot throughout the day. Perfect for anyone who wants that “no makeup makeup” look. They also have the most extensive shade range. Though I haven’t tried it, the Vapour Velvet Glow Foundation looks to be a very similar product even though it’s advertised as a foundation.
Saie Slip Tint
This tinted moisturizer is great for dry skin looking for an extra dose of hydration plus SPF protection. This has been my go-to product this summer!
