As you probably know by now, I use only mineral sunscreens as my skin is sensitive to chemical sunscreens. I use sunscreen EVERY. SINGLE. DAY and have tried a LOT of mineral sunscreens. That said, finding an affordable mineral sunscreen with an elegant finish and no white cast can be tricky!
But I am happy to report that the new Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Tinted Sunscreen is a great option at a great price!
Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Tinted Sunscreen Review
Texture-wise, this sunscreen has a slightly thicker consistency but still lightweight and applies smoothly without a greasy, tacky or heavy feeling. It blends in easily with a dewy finish, leaving a healthy glow without any white cast (which is offset by the sheer tint)
The formula is very sheer and the tint doesn’t provide coverage but neutralizes any redness on my face. The finish is quite shiny so those with combination to oily skin won’t like it, but I have dry skin and don’t mind the glow it gives! Check out my Instagram reel below to see the texture and finish…the finish doesn’t look as dewy on my hand in the video but on my face it’s quite glowy.

As I mentioned earlier that I have dry skin, so I like my sunscreens to be hydrating (without being heavy, of course!) This sunscreen is hydrating enough for me that I can skip a moisturizer underneath (except during the cold winter months when my skin is extra dry!) Another thing I love is that the formula is not sticky unlike some other mineral sunscreens I’ve tried, and it’s not water-resistant which I prefer in an everyday sunscreen. And it’s gentle too, so doesn’t irritate my skin or sting/burn around the eyes.
It’s very wearable on its own with a dewy finish but also wears nicely under makeup without balling or pilling. In fact, it doubles as a great smoothing primer under my makeup. Just make sure to wait a couple of minutes for the sunscreen to absorb before applying your makeup.
Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Tinted Sunscreen promises to blend seamlessly into all skin tones with an invisible finish 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 leaving an undetectable, dewy finish.
I guess if you have very fair skin, the tint might be a slight bit dark for you. However, for those with light to medium and deep skin tones, it blends in completely into the skin, and there’s no white cast whatsoever!
Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Tinted Sunscreen is a winner all around for me! It’s perfect for an everyday lightweight sunscreen that’s hydrating with a dewy finish, not greasy or tacky and protects skin with gentle 100% mineral SPF (without any white cast or chalkiness!) I would recommend this sunscreen only for normal to dry skin types. Those with oily skin might find the finish quite shiny!
Not to mention, it also contains skin-loving antioxidants and the formula is fragrance-free, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and is suitable for sensitive skin.
