Sometimes sunscreen can seem like a nuisance, as it’s yet another step you have to add into your (probably already too long) routine. And don’t get us started on that dreaded white film some formulas leave behind that makes it nearly impossible to layer on makeup. Luckily, beauty brands got the hint and are making life easier by combining sunscreen with a tint to save you time and make sure you stay protected against damaging sun rays.
