Moondance – Radiance Translucent Powder SPF 20
Size: 0.07 oz
- Aloe Vera leaf hydrates skin
- Rosemary leaf and soothes
- Kaolin absorbs excess oil and shine
This portable powder flatters the complexion with subtle luminosity while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Healing hibiscus flower and all natural SPF 20 (thanks to the non-nano zinc oxide) protect and soothe skin as corn starch keeps excess oil in check with a single sweep. An updated design ensures this weightless powder is distrubed evenly, every time.
Apply evenly in downward strokes on top of foundation or on bare face, concentrating on more oily areas.
With an updated design, the powder’s brush puts control in your hands with ‘Open,’ ‘Close’ and ‘Buff’ settings. Keep in your makeup bag to reset your look throughout the day.

About The Brand

Good, except packaging
I’m new to using a translucent powder and like the way that it feels and seems to set. But the powder is constantly leaking out the bottom which makes everything in my drawer or travel bag dirty…and means I’m losing product!
great packaging and delivery of sunscreen
I love the way this is packaged into an easy to use sunscreen. It is also really convenient to reapply throughout the day.
I cannot recommend this product at all. Barely any product comes out. Since, it is translucent you cannot tell how much has gotten on your skin. Just a total fail.
Really liked it; but not enough product for me
Really like this but found that the container clogged a little after several uses. But then overall, there just was not enough in the container to justify it for me.
This is the best portable SPF powder / applicator out there. The product comes out easily through the brush – just follow the instructions. Then buff it onto your face. It is fast to apply and works great. It also makes your skin look nice when you’re wearing it!
Great for covering/absorbing shine during the day
Not sure yet
I’ve had this about a month and still haven’t found the swing of things. So little product comes out I don’t see a change on my face from it. I’ve been using the brush with another setting powder! I’m convinced this would be solved with different packaging. Making a fine powder come all the way through brush bristles is a tall order.
I didn’t feel as though this worked very well. I just wanted it to cover up the greasies mid-day but felt it didn’t do a very great job of that. The tube may have also clogged a bit. I stopped using it in favor of another product.
Beautiful packaging but minimal coverage
I love Ilia and the packaging is great but I find it hard to tell when the product is actually coming out and being applied well enough to my face to get sun protection.
Portable and perfect for a nice glow
I’ve read lots of reviews stating that this brush system is kinda tricky especially when figuring out if anything is coming out. I found that same issue at first but then just started buffing it on the back of my hand first and that quickly solved the issue.
I love the packaging, it’s small easy to carry and works incredibly well for giving you a nice glow while on the go. I also love that the powder is so fine —(another reason why most were having trouble determing if it was dispensing any or not) it’s super lightweight and has a barely there feel.
I have combo skin so for me using this as a setting powder seems to make me look a little oily if I apply to my forehead it will appear shiny, so now I just apply to my cheeks the tip of my nose and chin and then use a different setting powder all over. This mixed with Ilia’s multi stick in I Put a Spell on You is amazing, defintely worth looking into. All in all very happy with this purchase.. this site is so awesome and can’t wait to purchase from them again!
I use this as my travel powder for when I know I’ll need touch ups on the run. The spf really seals the deal.
Brush/dispenser design makes it difficult to apply
I like the powder, but the brush/dispenser design is an annoyance. It’s hard to tell how much is going on, which is important with an SPF product, and I always have some powder fall out of the bottom of the dispenser. I do really like the powder, but due to the problems with the design I would not rebuy.
Good for a touch-up during the day.
Agreed with many of the other reviews that nothing seemed to come out when I first tried it. I did wind up leaving it open and buffing on my hand until I saw that the powder was getting deposited on my hand. Then I’d twist it to the buff position and swirl on my face.
This method seems wasteful, but I wanted something to layer on top of my make up throughout the day. This seemed most convenient, and will have to do!
A Bit Shiny for Me
I liked the applicator on this product, but ultimately ended up returning it because I prefer a more matte look to my finishing powders. This powder was fairly reflective once applied.
I needed a product with SPF that I can use for touch up throughout the day when I’m outside without having to smear something over my face and possibly mess up my makeup. Powders are perfect for that and this one is great because it’s a clean brand, the bristles are soft, and it doesn’t cake on anything unnecessary. As with other stick powders, it can be hard to tell if anything is coming out and how much you’re putting on, but I usually start by holding it to the light and putting some on my hand to make sure the powder has come to the bristles. Then I apply to my face. This will be in my purse all spring/summer.
Easy + Amazing
I wanted a finishing powder that I could just gloss over my face quickly if I’m in a rush, and this has surpassed! I use it with or without makeup. The best part is that it’s SPF 20, so if I don’t have time to find my sunscreen, I still feel protected with ILIA’s moondance powder.
Weekday Look Alive Lifesaver!
My weekday (and most weekends too) makeup routine is pretty light, just enough to look alive and healthy. I love this powder, I use it to set my concealer and it leaves a nice finish across the rest of my face too! I will definitely be recommending this to my friends!!
Nice product, but terrible packaging. Hard to tell how much your using or if the application is even
Makeup setting, and sheer
I’ve been using this to set my makeup, and add an extra layer of sun protection. So far I love the formula, it’s translucent and goes on easily
new on-the-go staple
decided to give this a shot and am not disappointed – sets foundation and nips any unwanted shine while imparting a subtle radiance. the packaging also eliminates the need to carry around anything extra (brush, separate highlighter). i’ve been an rms un-powder devotee since its original release, but this is my new favorite staple in my bag for on-the-go touchups. the spf 20 is an added bonus!
Love the functionality of the product, wish the packaging was different
Love the concept and purpose of this product. Why not sneak SPF coverage into a finishing powder? I used this all summer and loved the feeling of it on my skin, also gave me confidence when outside throughout the day that I had some SPF protection.
The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the stick/twist application. You have to push pretty hard to get the powder through the brush, and I would have loved a loose powder pack instead.
I was worried about this product working because you can’t see it when you apply it. But I used this as a face sunscreen when I was outside all day and needed to wear makeup and loved it. Reapplied 2x and didn’t burn! I use this everyday now. Love!
Exactly what I been looking for!!
I have combo to oily skin and don’t really like to wear the standard SPF lotions on my face. I’m not a everyday makeup wearer either. But I was looking for something light weight that takes away the shine away and found this also had SPF. I love how convenient the applicator is and it’s now a standard in my purse!!
I'm considering buying an extra
This powder has replaced my regular powder. I love that it has SPF and the applicator is so convenient (it goes through the bristles). It goes on translucent, but you have that extra sun armor. I live in the south and am out in the sun a lot. For me –this is a must have.
