Shake well before use.
Dispense a quarter-sized amount into palms and apply to skin like a serum.
For best results, apply to clean, bare skin. If your skin is dry, you can apply True Skin Radiant Priming Serum or a silicone-free moisturizer first.
Upon application, your shade will appear lighter to guide you in applying SPF. After 30-60 seconds, the formula will dry down and adjust to its true tone.
For a less dewy finish, set with Soft Focus Finishing Powder.
Because the formula contains no added fragrance, you may notice the natural scent of the ingredients. This scent will fade after application.

Why should I use a skin tint?
ILIA Skin Tint combines SPF 40 sun protection with light, dewy coverage and skincare actives—think of it like a tinted moisturizer with benefits. This skin tint instantly blurs the look of pores, lines, and redness and protects like a sunscreen. Over time, the skincare-powered formula visibly refines, smooths, and plumps for better skin with every wear. Pair it with ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer for more coverage or ILIA Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 to boost sun protection throughout the day.
What does Non-Nano Zinc Oxide mean?
Non-Nano Zinc Oxide is a safe physical form of sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays. Non-nano means that the product is not small enough to enter your bloodstream. The patent pending Non-Nano Zinc Oxide has an average particle size of 150 nanometers. This means it’s safe for the skin and the environment—it is the safest form of SPF.
How long will SPF 40 protect me?
SPF 40 means that if your skin burns within five minutes of sun exposure, Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 will offer you 40X that time in the sun before burning. 40 x 5 minutes = 3+ hours in the sun without burning. To reapply protection, we suggest using the Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 instead of layering the Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40.
How do you apply ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint?
Shake your bottle of ILIA Skin Tint SPF 40 well before use. Dispense a quarter-sized amount into your palms and apply to clean, bare skin like a serum.
What kind of coverage does the Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 have? Is it buildable?
Light, dewy coverage. We do not recommend layering, as it may start to feel heavy. It is not designed to be buildable. For more coverage, we recommend pairing it with ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer.
Can I apply ILIA Skin Tint with a makeup sponge?
We like to use our fingertips and apply like a skincare serum, though we have heard from some customers that they prefer applying with a makeup sponge.
How much product should I use?
We recommend a quarter dropper, or enough to cover your face in a thin layer for proper SPF protection. For those with oily skin, we recommend setting ILIA Skin Tint with our Soft Focus Finishing Powder along the T-Zone.
On the bottle, it states that you need to reapply this product every 2 hours. Should this be reapplied throughout the day?
Because this is makeup, we recommend you apply during your morning routine and if needed, boost your SPF throughout the day with Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20.
Do I need to apply skincare underneath ILIA Skin Tint?
We recommend applying ILIA Skin Tint to clean, bare skin. The skincare-powered formula acts as a serum, SPF, and makeup in one step. If your skin is very dry, you may want to use a lightweight, silicone-free facial oil or serum underneath. Allow any skincare to sink in fully before applying Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 to prevent pilling.
Is ILIA Skin Tint good for oily skin?
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and formulated with all skin types in mind. For a less dewy finish, we recommend setting it with ILIA Soft Focus Finishing Powder.
