What reviewers say about ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40
“I HATE foundation and the feeling of having something on my face, so this is a great option. It’s lightweight, tinted and provides enough coverage to cover redness. Bonus that it has SPF!” – Sage
“My over-70 dry skin loves it! I first bought it as an spf after watching Youtuber & dermatologist Dr Dray demo. I wanted that pretty, glowy look and I got it! I quickly quit wearing foundation and added Ilia concealer (website recommended perfect concealer color based on my tinted spf serum color). Enjoying the lighter feel, especially during hot & humid Dallas weather. No scent that I can detect. Great find!” – Suzeanna

Mineral SPF40 with beneficial skincare ingredients
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint is an outstanding tinted moisturizer for dry and mature skin. Its mineral SPF 40 formula contains non-nano zinc oxide that provides broad spectrum sun protection. This is the base I wear on sunny hikes and beach days.
It also contains a slew of good-for-your-skin ingredients like niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and squalane to hydrate and improve skin elasticity.
Clean formula without chemical sunscreens, silicones, parabens and more
As someone who cannot use products with silicones or chemical sunscreen, I was thrilled to find out that the Super Serum Tint did not contain any of these offending ingredients. After testing the product for several months, I’m happy to report that it did not give me any weird skin reactions.
ILIA Super Serum Tint also does not contain parabens, fragrance or oil, all of which can be problematic for sensitive skin.
Great for no-makeup days
This is the product I reach for on “no makeup” days or when I want to look fresh and glowy.
Pair with concealer for more coverage
For skin that requires a bit more coverage, try wearing the ILIA Super Serum Tint with concealer. If you don’t know your concealer shade, use the Find Your Foundation/Concealer shade page to find your correct shade.
Finish with mineral powder sunscreen to reduce shine
On very sunny and humid days, I like to pair it with a mineral powder sunscreen like the Tarte Sea Set & Protect Mineral Powder Sunscreen for extra sun protection and to cut down on excessive shine.
Finding the correct shade is key
The ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint has a sheer, skin-like finish and with the correct shade, you won’t look like you are wearing anything on your skin at all.
If you are not sure which shade to use, use the Find Your Foundation Match page to find the correct shade.
