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.

Do I need to apply skincare underneath?
We recommend applying the product to freshly cleansed skin. The formula is powered by active levels of skincare ingredients which provide excellent hydration. If your skin is extremely dry, try using a lightweight serum or oil underneath. Allow product to fully sink in before applying Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40, this will help prevent any pilling.
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 recycle the bottle?
The bottle can be recycled after use in a standard recycling bin. The dropper collar and cap can be recycled through TerraCycle's Zero Waste Box platform that is dedicated to recycling the hard-to-recycle. Learn more here.
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.
Can I apply 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 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.
How do you apply ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint?
Shake your bottle of ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 well before use. Dispense a quarter-sized amount into your palms and apply to clean, bare skin like a serum.
Is ILIA Skin Tint buildable?
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 is not designed to be buildable. It provides light coverage with a dewy finish. For more coverage, we recommend pairing it with ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer.
