ILIA Skin Tint: The Facts

What Is It?

This serum provides light, dewy coverage and active squalane levels, vitaminamide, and hyaluronic acids.


  • This is not your mama's SPF.
  • ILIA understands that "tinted", doesn't necessarily mean one color, and offers this product in 30 colors.
  • Fragrance-free (smells a bit like zinc).
  • Gives skin a radiant glow that brings out its true potential.
  • Skin-supporting ingredients are used to treat the skin.
  • Offers 40 SPF, which is more than the average daily wear SPF.
  • Blurs imperfections and redness


  • Some people find it too dewy.
  • This foundation is said to be buildable by some sites, but I doubt it. This product is made easier by layering.
  • Collects in dry spots, laugh lines, and smile lines.
  • You need to find the right balance between "enough product" and SPF 40. But not too much.
  • You may need to experiment with the shade you choose as color oxidizes.
  • As the day progresses, the wear will change. It is super dewy initially but it becomes less noticeable the more it sits on your skin.
  • Avoid applying eye makeup too close to the eyes and on the eyelids.
  • It is not recommended for use as an eyelid primer, or foundation.
  • Applying too close to the hairline can cause it to look greasy.
  • It tends to stick to the skin after it is first applied. You will need to work it in to achieve the desired look.
  • This coverage is very light. It is not sufficient to cover all imperfections and blemishes, but it will blur hyperpigmentation.
  • Not buildable.
  • Exfoliated skin is best as it will retain its texture.

Ilia Beauty Super Serum Skin Tint Review

Ingredients: Sun Protection And Clean Coverage

I get breakouts from organic and all-natural products, often due to the use of potent essential oils. Sasha Plavsic (founder of ILIA), told me that she had the same problems and was adamant about Skin Tint being a treatment.

Skin Tint contains plant-based squalane, one of the most hydrating, non-comedogenic oils on the market. It also has niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that can be used to treat congestion and breakouts.

The product contains two forms of hyaluronic acids to provide a hydrating boost and smoothen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

This formula provides broad-spectrum protection with SPF 40 thanks to a special zinc oxide form. Plavsic said that this was the most difficult part of creating this product.

She says that most non-nano-zinc, zinc reduced to smaller particles--has a silicon coating on the pigment. She calls it "ghosting", or the product will have a white cast upon first application. The cast disappears once the product has oxidized for 30-60 seconds.

The product also passes Byrdie’s Clean Beauty Pledge with flying colors. It is also recyclable, making it Insta-worthy.

The Scent & Feel: Very Similar To My Favorite Ha Serums

This product has a texture similar to my favorite hyaluronic acid serums. It has a super soft finish and is easy to build up. It has a liquid consistency that reminds me of my Kosas Tinted Face Oil. It has no fragrance, so it is great for sensitive skin.

Results: A 12-Hour Wear-Test

A 12-hour wear test is my favorite way to evaluate foundation. Since I work remotely, I don't wear foundation for more than three to four hours. It is crucial to make sure the foundation lasts throughout the day.

A 12-hour test seems like the best way to measure this. Check out the below comparison of ILIA's new Skin Tint.

8 a.m. Plavsic instructed me to shake the product before applying it. I apply the Skin Tint to dry, freshly-exfoliated skin using my fingers.

9 a.m.: The product has fully absorbed into my skin, much like a ladyfinger in tiramisu. My dermaplane is done once per week. I find that products absorb more easily on my skin since there is less peach fuzz.

10 a.m., I powder my nose because I'm going along with a guy obsessed with me to an art fair and will probably be sweating from nerves. My pores aren't noticeable and look pretty healthy surprise! This is a rare occurrence with products that don't contain silicones.

1p.m. I use my day-date time to go to the toilet to check my skin. It looks great, even after two glasses of champagne. To correct a few spots of discoloration, I applied my beloved Cle de Peau Corrector again. My oil levels are normal even though it's sunny and 70 degrees in L.A.

3.30 p.m.: After the art fair, it's time to eat sushi. The maitre d’ compliments my skin. I am overjoyed. A little more powder would be nice around my T-zone.

Laura Mercier has a small translucent powder that I can fit in my purses. It even comes with a tiny puff! Before the green tea mochi is out, I re-powder.

5.30 p.m.: After wearing foundation for the day, my skin feels great and isn't cakey. My biggest pet peeves are dry patches and creasing. Perioral dermatitis causes me slight dryness around the mouth and a dry chin. I go out to dinner early.

8 p.m.: ILIA's new Skin Tint has been tested, and the results have been clear: This product is like a Bengal cat's pajamas.

The Value: Worth it

ILIA's Super Serum Skin Tint costs $46 and offers a full ounce of product. This will make a significant difference in your life. This is why I am now obsessed with micronized Zinc.

It gives my skin a healthy glow and provides superior sun protection. Many customers have complained that certain shades are selling out quickly online. However, I was told by the brand that there would be regular restocks. You will be glad that you did.


FAQs About Ilia Beauty Super Serum Skin Tint Review

Is It Necessary To Use Skincare Under Ilia Skin Tint

To clean and bare skin, we recommend ILIA Skin Tint. This skincare-powered product can be used as a serum and SPF in one step. You may need to apply a light, silicone-free serum or facial oil underneath if your skin is extremely dry.

To prevent any skin from rubbing off, allow the Super Serum Skin Tint 40 to absorb before you apply it thoroughly.

What Does Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Refer To?

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, a physical sunscreen, protects against UVA rays and UVB. Non-nano means the product is too small to be absorbed into your bloodstream.

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, a patent-pending product, has a particle size of 150 nanometers. It is safe for the skin and environment, making it the safest type of sunscreen.

What Protection Will Spf 40 Provide Me For?

SPF 40 is a protection factor that ensures that your skin does not burn within five minutes of exposure to the sun. Super Serum Skin Tint 40 will provide you with 40X sun protection before it starts to burn. 40 x 5 mins = 3+ hours in direct sunlight without burning.

Instead of applying sunscreen layer after layer, you can use the Radiant Translucent powder SPF 20 to reapply.

How Do I Apply Ilia Skin Tint?

Before using, shake the ILIA Skin Tint 40 bottle. Apply a quarter-sized amount to your palms.

How Much Coverage Does Super Serum Skin Tint Spf40 Provide? Can It Be Built?

Light, dewy coverage. Layering is not recommended as it can feel heavy.

Is it possible to apply an ILIA skin tint with a makeup sponge?

We prefer to apply the skincare serum with our fingertips, but some customers prefer using a sponge.

What Amount Of Product Should I Use?

For proper SPF protection, we recommend using a quarter of a dropper. This will cover enough skin to protect your face. We recommend using ILIA Skin Tint and our Soft Focus Finishing powder to cover oily skin.

The bottle states that the product must be reapplied every 2 hours. Do you think you should reapply for this product throughout the day?

This makeup should be applied during your morning routine. Radiant Translucent powder SPF 20 can also be used to boost your SPF throughout the day.

Is ILIA Skin Tint Buildable?

ILIA Super Serum SPF 40 is not intended to be buildable. It gives light coverage and a dewy look. We recommend pairing with ILIA True Skin Concealer for more excellent coverage.

Is Ilia Skin Tint Suitable For Oily Skin Types?

The ILIA is non-comedogenic and oil-free. It's formulated for all skin types. We recommend using ILIA Soft Focus Finishing powder to give it a more dewy look.


This is skincare makeup done right. If that makes any sense, it is a great serum (sans the tint) and an excellent skin tint (sans the serum). This Ilia product is a perfect option for those who want a little bit of coverage without the heaviness of a full-coverage foundation.
