  • First Clean Beauty Purchase

    Kegan L. December 01, 2019

    For my first truly clean beauty product purchase, I wanted a tinted moisturizer that would help even my skin tone out and be light weight. This product NAILED it! The smell is a little different but nothing that is offense or annoying and goes away quickly. It’s light coverage but buildable. It’s becoming one of the best purchases I’ve ever made beauty product wise!

  • More sunscreen than moisturizer

    Katrina October 28, 2019

    This didn’t work for me as I was looking for a bb cream replacement; I think this is more sunscreen than anything else. The color tint disappeared entirely for me when put on. It was thicker than I anticipated or wanted, and isn’t as I would expect a moisturizer to be. Really appreciated Follain helping me to find a new option though!

  • Wonderful!

    Laura L. October 18, 2019

    This is my first purchase of clean beauty products, and I am so impressed! This goes on thick at first, but blends in easily and stays all day! I love that it has sun protection. The color blends really well and it doesn’t make my face look greasy.

  • I love this and have been using it every day

    Eve S. October 07, 2019

    I was concerned because some reviews said this was sticky. I did not find that to be true for me. It was lightly moisturizing, and never ever made me feel greasy by the end of the day. It is sheer, but layers for more coverage, or I occasionally use it under a more matte makeup Great sun protection. A very very light sunscreen smell that disappears immediately. My only complaint is that it comes out too fast, often wasting too much product. That is the only reason I took off a star, the packaging needs improvement. I will definitely re-order. *Note: the color chart and description was absolutely accurate.

  • Not bad - light coverage

    Christie S. September 16, 2019

    Coverage is very light, smooths out complexion, but does not cover acne scarring. Feels moisturizing and the colour was a great match despite my struggles with some brands to find the right sandy beige that can handle a yellow undertone.

  • Not a fan

    Megan C. September 05, 2019

    Unfortunately, this product was disappointing. The texture felt more like a thick sunscreen. Once applied it almost looked white and offered no coverage at all like most tinted moisturizers. I would not recommend.

    • From Follain:

      Hi there! We are so sorry to hear that the Sheer Tinted Facial Mineral Sunscreen was not a perfect match for you. Please feel free to reach out to and we can make sure to find you a product that you will love! Best, Team Follain

  • Texture

    Nancy B. August 11, 2019

    I’ve been using an oil free tinted moisturizer in lieu of a foundation. When I found out that my current product had been discontinued, I tried this brand as a replacement. As noted by others, this feels more like a sunscreen than a tinted moisturizer. Burns if you get it in your eyes. I don’t hate it but I’ll likely try a few other products to see if I can find one that has a better moisturizer texture.

  • A little sticky

    Katie H. July 26, 2019

    The smell and texture are a little sunscreen-esqu but I guess that’s because that’s what it is! That being said it felt pretty light and I loved their descriptions of the colors which helped me match mine almost perfectly.

  • Love Love Love It

    Taylor July 01, 2019

    I wear this everyday and it provides a great smooth tint for my face. I was wearing foundation everyday to work and now I just throw this one with some mascara and it provides the perfect amount of light coverage. I will definitely be buying again!

  • Love this product

    Jane B. June 21, 2019

    I don’t like to wear a heavy foundation. I was looking for something light that would just give me a little coverage. This product does that. It evens out my skin tone just enough, it moisturizes and has sunscreen. The one tip is that you have to shake it before using it because there is some settling when it sits because of its all natural ingredients.

  • Love

    Elise June 06, 2019

    I’m pretty picky and have sensitive skin prone to breakouts. This product is awesome! I use it every day and love the way my skin looks and feels. I usually use Pai daycream first then apply this because my skin is so dry.

  • Love this. Perfect Matte Finish, But Non-Drying

    Cece M. May 26, 2019

    With combination skin, it is often hard to find products that sit well all day long (that don’t make me greasy looking in some places and dried out in others). Most spf tinted moisturizers leave me shiny. This one is different! It feels great on my skin when I put it on and helps my skin feel protected all day long.

  • A Great Product

    Karen S. May 11, 2019

    I really love this tinted moisturizer! It is sheer and light, yet it covers well. It is not greasy and is especially easy to blend. There is no need to use a lot, as a little goes a long way. I highly recommend this product!!!!

  • Very sticky, feels like bad sunscreen

    Devin April 30, 2019

    Very heavy feeling on the face and sticky like sunscreen. It does have very light coverage and is sheer but you can feel it on your face so it doesn’t have the light ‘no makeup’ feel of a traditional tinted moisturizer.

  • Good alternative

    Karen April 25, 2019

    I still love Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, but this is good too. I like the color and it provides good coverage and sun protection. However, it is very thick and not necessarily as moisturizing as I would like – in the winter. I am also not keen about the smell.

  • Good

    At April 14, 2019

    Very light coverage but I love the texture. I wear it during the day and feel like my skin looks fresh after putting it on. I recommend it.

  • Ideal Coverage!

    Rebecca April 14, 2019

    Anyone who has used the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer for years and is making the shift to cleaner products will love this ILIA moisturizer – it’s the perfect swap and will be your new go-to for sun protection + light coverage from here on out!

  • Nice but a bit thick

    Hc April 10, 2019

    I love almost everything about this product. The color I chose, Los Roques T1, was spot on. It smells nice, and of course, I love that it’s free of toxic ingredients. I do find it a bit thick and hard to spread, though I still plan on buying it again once I run out. Overall a great product.

  • A little goes a long way

    Suzie April 07, 2019

    One thing I had to learn was a little goes a very long way. At first I put way too much on the back of my head to apply with a brush, so much so that it was kinda sticky and oily all day. But I really like it when I do apply the right amount. it’s sheer and light and it matches perfectly. I really like that I know that its not going to hurt my skin if I were to not wash it off (rarely happens) but it is a plus

  • Sheer moisture in the perfect tone for my skin

    Anne K. March 18, 2019

    Your advice on what color to choose for my skin tone was spot on. It goes on smoothly, covers lightly and perfectly, while moisturizing with the added benefit of sun protection . I am very pleased with the results of this product, one which has been previously difficult for me to find and be as happy with.

  • Not for me

    Rachel March 16, 2019

    Really liked that the product had a non-nano sunscreen and was easy to apply. Cons are I did not like the scent of product and also felt it was too matte for my skin type.

  • great

    Erin M. January 09, 2019

    Great for a quick throw on when you’re running out the door; it’s light but gives you a nice glow!

  • Best tinted moisturizer I have tried

    Sara J. December 12, 2018

    I like this the best of any tinted moisturizer I have tried, whether it be clean products or any other other makeup brands. It stays on all day, keeps my skin hydrated, but with a nice matte finish.

  • Search is over!

    Mackenzie E. November 24, 2018

    I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturizer that is actually moisturizing without being sticky and too heavy- this is it! Light to medium coverage, goes on smooth and never feels heavy.

  • glowy

    Hayley W. November 20, 2018

    I wish it was slightly more pigmented but the overall texture and how it feels on my face is really nice. It gives you a dewy glow and is very minimal.

  • Feels like nothing

    Taylor I. November 18, 2018

    I was surprised at first since it goes on quite thick, but spreads nicely and gives a good coverage. Not too sheer and not too thick. Covers my redness without making it seem like I’m wearing anything at all. After leaving it on usually with other products by midday I’ll feel oily due to my skin, but this feels wonderful and doesn’t get super oily. Stays rather matte. I don’t even realize I have it on most of the time. Also surpised it matched my skin perfectly(probably cause just a tinted moisturizer lol) but the tips on choosing a color for your skin, if you know it well, seems to really come in handy.

  • great product

    Sara J. November 06, 2018

    I have been using it for about a week, and have been really pleased. It gives me a little help to color correct, but blends into my skin nicely. It leaves my skin with a nice feel and finish, and not oily at all.

  • Natural Coverage and Moisturizing

    Jessica F. October 18, 2018

    I’ve been wearing this as foundation everyday with minimal concealer and love it. It goes on a little think and shiny, but then soaks into my skin leaving a dewy glow. I find it very moisturizing and often only wear a light serum under. I’ve gotten compliments on my skin while wearing. SPF is an added bonus!

  • Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer dupe

    Elizabeth F. September 10, 2018

    I was a big fan of Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer but was looking for something with natural ingredients. I tried a bunch of different organic tinted moisturizers and I feel Ilia’s tinted moisturizer is the best match. It’s a lightweight tinted moisturizer that goes on smoothly and has good staying power. On dry days, I put face oil on my skin and then apply the moisturizer. The color Hanalei T3 is a good match for my light to medium neutral tone skin.

  • Much better look and feel than vapour.

    Madelyn A. September 05, 2018

    This tinted moisturizer is great coverage while also making not masking freckles and your natural skin. It seems to get oily on my nose after a couple hours. It smells nice and feels fresh. I love the look and feel and will be buying again. Build-able as well!

  • Lovely tint for everyday wear

    Diane S. August 24, 2018

    I appreciate the light weight creamy lotion formula that absorbs quickly. I apply to the tips of my index and third fingers, blot to distribute, then feather blend to evenly cover. I would say this is a light to moderate coverage which can be increased slightly depending on the thickness or layers of application.

  • Wanted to like this

    Laura E. July 20, 2018

    I was looking to switch to a cleaner tinted moisturizer. I did a lot of research and landed on this one. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this brand. Unfortunately, this did not make the cut. It does not go on very smoothly nor is the coverage great. I didn’t try the product right away when I got it and I usually need a bit of time to decide if I like it, so it’s too late to return. I won’t be buying this again. If you’re used to a smooth and creamy tinted moisturizer, for me, this was not the one. 🙁

    • From Follain:

      Hi Laura- sorry to hear this product didn’t work out! Please feel free to email us at so we can help you find another item!

  • Great tinted moisturizer

    Patricia D. June 18, 2018

    I purchased this to replace a NARS tinted moisturizer and it was a great swap! A little goes a long way to even out my skin!

  • Love it

    Ariel S. June 17, 2018

    I use as primer/light foundation. Will definitely get again. Light, clean, covers evenly.

  • Amazing for dry skin

    Stephanie P. April 16, 2018

    I’ve never felt a tinted moisturizer like this. It’s thick and dewy but melts into my skin easily. Evens out my skin tone and doesn’t start flaking by the end of the day, even around my nose where I usually have issues. Love it.

  • Perfect light coverage

    Amy H. February 28, 2018

    Super smooth & glowy coverage. I love that it has SPF and isn’t as heavy as a foundation.

  • The best tinted moisturizer!

    Sydney F. February 14, 2018

    My typical daily makeup routine starts and ends with ILIA Sheer Tinted Moisturizer. This product does has it all – coverage, sun protection, and a hint of color. Plus, it leaves my skin feeling fresh and dewy! By far the best tinted moisturizer I’ve tried.

  • Dream come true

    Reganne D. February 04, 2018

    This is my dream foundation, it’s light and natural, and hasn’t given my acne prone skin any issues. I love the medium coverage I get with it. I use a beauty blender or my fingers to apply it. I feel like the beauty blender works best

  • Perfect daytime look

    Karen W. February 02, 2018

    I use this in place of a foundation and apply on top of my daily moisturizer. This works well for me…I have very dry skin and don’t like a lot of heavy foundation. This gives enough color to even out my skin tone and also provides me with sun protection.

  • Not a fan

    Kc January 11, 2018

    Too thick, it’s hard to spread and it leaves a weird film on my face. I have to combine it with another facial oil or moisturizer to get it to spread the way I want it to. Disappointing.

    • From Follain:

      Hi KC! Try shaking the foundation up first before applying to help the natural oils mix up the product.

  • Hands down my favorite product

    Beth P. October 03, 2017

    Perfect go-to tinted moisturizer!

  • Love this product

    Brittany C. October 03, 2017

    I use this product almost everyday. I wear very little make up and this does just enough to even my skin out and hide any small imperfections. I use with either RMS or W3ll People bronzer and head out the door.

  • great.

    Caroline C. October 02, 2017

    I use this tinted moisturizer almost everyday. It gives the skin an I just went on a run glow. It is light weight and smooths out discoloration on the skin. Colorwise, I wear the shade 22 in RMS uncover up and the Hanalei T3 shade matches well. Definitely an everyday staple.

  • Light weight but great coverage

    Kate October 02, 2017

    I haven’t found a tinted moisturizer that offers great coverage like this while still being light weight and have spf. I have combination skin and this hides redness and unevenness really well. Great product and always have it in my make up bag!

  • Daily wear.

    Indu S. October 01, 2017

    This lightweight sun protector offers good coverage; it has an odd smell to it, but only when initially putting the product on. This was the only one I could find that offered healthy sun protection with moisture and a little bit of coverage.

  • Looks great!

    Jesse W. September 28, 2017

    I have been using this for a while now (I have a lighter shade for winters as well!) and have no desire to try another brand. It looks great and is moisturizing on my skin. My only complaint is that it feels a little heavy or thick when you first start using it when comparing to traditional brands (I used Laura Mercier before), but you get used to it. It gives your skin a glowing look- dewy without looking oily.

  • My fave tinted moisturizer

    Traci S. September 28, 2017

    Great tinted moisturizer for those with dry skin (even if you get oily around the t-zone). The description of the shade is perfect – I am a freckled, fair-skinned blonde who can tan and the shade blends right in to my skin. I love that it also has SPF and is free of toxins.

  • Not what I expected

    Emily October 13, 2016

    This is my first time trying ILIA moisturizer and my first online purchase. I am surprised at how sticky and dry my skin feels after using it. It is not heavy but I feel as though it does not moisturize my skin well. It is more of a concealer than a moisturizer. I am really disappointed in this product after reading all of the good reviews. I wish that there was someway to exchange for another product.

  • Light but coats well!

    Annie February 24, 2016

    Love how light this is — it goes on smooth and you only need a pea to dime size to get a great layer in. I love that it has 30 SPF and moisturizes while evening my skin tone.

  • The Best!

    Natalie July 21, 2015

    I have tried many tinted moisturizers and when it was time to replenish, I’d always look for a new brand. I just couldn’t find one that I loved … until now! The ILIA tinted moisturizer is just perfect. It is the perfect amount of coverage, especially for the days when I don’t feel like putting on a lot of makeup but don’t want to walk out of the house without anything on either. It is moisturizing but doesn’t make you oily. I have combination skin and am prone to breakouts and have found a lot of success with this tinted moisturizer not aggravating my skin. It is so soothing when applying. I love how it feels. Bonus — it has SPF!

  • Awesome!

    Amanda February 26, 2015

    I’m always looking for new makeup brands to try and love a good tinted moisturizer-this one is great! Not a ton is needed to cover the entire face, and it is sheer enough to make you feel like your not covered in makeup but have just the right amount on. I use it with a little bit of concealer and some color on my cheeks. Such a quick morning routine.
