Sukin Sheer Touch Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 is a new mineral sunscreen with a reef-safe formula that’s non-greasy, sheer to the touch and won’t leave a white cast.
Formulated with an antioxidant-rich blend of Rosehip Oil, Green Tea and Cucumber to nourish the skin, this mineral sunscreen is available in un-tinted and tinted options for different skin tones (Light/Medium tint and Medium/Dark tint)
When I spotted this new tinted mineral sunscreen at Target a few weeks ago, I knew I had to try this out! It promises everything I look for in a good sunscreen – sheer without any white cast or greasy residue, has an all-mineral Zinc Oxide based formula for broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, contains nourishing natural ingredients to care for the skin as it protects from UV rays and has an SPF of at least 30.
Not to mention, this sunscreen is free from harmful chemical absorbers Oxybenzone and Octinoxate which can be damaging to precious coral reefs and aquatic life.

Sukin Sheer Touch Tinted Sunscreen has a very lightweight texture that goes on smoothly and blends seamlessly. No thick, heavy or greasy feel here! It has a mild fragrance but that fades away quickly after applying.
I picked up the Light/Medium shade and it has worked well for me. As the name suggests, it applies sheer and leaves virtually no trace on the skin. Here’s a swatch:
The formula is lightly hydrating but not enough for my dry skin, so I use this sunscreen on top of my moisturizer and it leaves a natural shine-free finish. If you have combination to oily skin, I’m sure you will love this SPF as much as I do and might be easily able to skip a moisturizer (especially in summer) when using this sunscreen. And there’s absolutely NO annoying white cast that requires copious amounts of time trying to rub away!
Sukin Sheer Touch Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 is just a sunscreen and doesn’t provide any coverage (that you get from tinted moisturizers) It does even out my skin tone slightly but that’s about it. However, it works well under makeup and doesn’t pill.
Sukin Sheer Touch Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 is an excellent (and affordable!) mineral sunscreen that’s truly sheer and lightweight without any white cast at all and great for ALL skin types with its natural shine-free finish. It doesn’t feel thick, heavy or greasy and sits well under makeup. It deserves a spot in my list of the best mineral tinted sunscreens.
Not to mention, it contains skin-loving ingredients and is certified cruelty-free, paraben-free, vegan and reef safe.
