CeraVe Hydrating Sunscreen Sheer Tint SPF 30 is a new tinted mineral sunscreen formulated with three essential ceramides and soothing Niacinamide plus hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and help restore the skin’s natural barrier —while leaving a sheer, natural finish that blends seamlessly with the skin.
Non-greasy and suitable for sensitive skin, the new CeraVe tinted sunscreen provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with only mineral sunscreen actives (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) that form a barrier on the surface of the skin to reflect the sun’s rays.

CeraVe Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 Review
The new CeraVe tinted sunscreen has a lightweight, creamy lotion texture that feels moisturizing and applies easily without a greasy, thick or heavy feeling. It absorbs quickly and blends in beautifully with a soft dewy finish, leaving a healthy glow without a white cast (which is offset by the sheer tint)
The sheer tint doesn’t provide much coverage but slightly blurs the appearance of blemishes and neutralizes any redness on my face. Basically, it provides just a hint of coverage that evens my skin tone beautifully while adding a subtle, natural glow (not shiny or oily!)
In fact, I’d say it’s one of the best drugstore tinted moisturizers with SPF I’ve tried in quite some time! It’s very wearable on its own with a natural finish but also wears well under makeup without balling or pilling.
True to its name, this sunscreen is also hydrating. I love how it provides the perfect dose of moisture that’s just right for my dry skin, without being heavy or greasy at all. So, I don’t need a moisturizer when using this sunscreen and that’s a big plus in my book!
That said, it might feel too moisturizing and/or emphasize shine if you have very oily skin. If you prefer only matte finish sunscreen, try the CeraVe Ultra-light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30
CeraVe tinted sunscreen promises to blend seamlessly into all skin tones and while I can’t attest to that claim, I can tell you that it does blend in perfectly on my light-medium skin tone with a natural finish and looks like my bare-skin-but-better…and I LOVE that of course! Since the formula is quite sheer, I think it should work for most skin tones.

Not to mention, the fragrance-free and paraben-free formula is non-comedogenic (which means it won’t clog pores) and is suitable even for sensitive skin.
CeraVe Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 is a winner all around! It ticks all the right boxes in terms of texture, feel and finish and there’s no white cast here.
With gentle 100% mineral SPF, it protects and hydrates (without being greasy) while adding a sheer tint for healthy glow. In fact, it’s actually a great sheer tinted moisturizer with SPF that smooths and evens skin tone while still allowing your natural skin to shine through!
