Top 8 Natural Foundations, BB Creams & Primers with SPF
I've had a lot of questions recently about BB Creams, foundations or primers with SPF. These are my top eight natural BB Creams, Tinted Moisturisers, Foundations and Primers I've used and loved, that contain natural SPF!
14e Cosmetics Foundation & Sheer Tint
Both the 14e Cosmetics Foundation and Sheer Tint have an SPF rating (SPF 23, and SPF10, respectively), a beautiful lightweight finish and offer good coverage.You can find swatches of all the shades in both + my review here.
La Mav Organic Anti-Ageing Mineral Foundation SPF15
This mineral foundation provides light, medium coverage and a seamless, airbrushed finish when applied over a liquid foundation or BB Cream. With nothing but good-for-skin ingredients and natural minerals, this foundation has broad spectrum SPF of 15 and is great as a foundation or setting powder over your foundation throughout the day!
Mukti Tinted Moisturiser with Sunscreen
Mukti is another brilliant natural brand. This Tinted Moisturiser contains nourishing, hydrating ingredients whilst evening the skin tone, and providing SPF15+. You can wear it alone or under your foundation or powder for added coverage and sun protection.
ILIA Beauty Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturiser SPF20
SHOP: USA FREE shipping worldwide $50+
The ILIA Tinted Moisturiser gives the skin the most gorgeously dewy finish, evens the skin tone, blurring imperfections and balances redness. The coverage is light to light - medium, and you can wear this alone, or underneath a powder or with concealer and other make-up for a complete look.
They also have a great range of shades, and most of the ingredients are Certified Organic.
Hynt Beauty Sun Prep Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen
You can use this on it's own on bare skin as a sunscreen, or as a primer underneath makeup. It is really hydrating, and leaves the skin supple and smooth. The texture is a bit like a lightweight lotion - it absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave the skin greasy or with a white cast.
Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream
SHOP: Australia (ships worldwide)
With an SPF30, the Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream offers more than sun protection.
While evening the skin tone, blurring imperfections and offering light coverage, the Josh Rosebrook Day Cream moisturises, helps to fight acne, reduce the appearance of age spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness and calm irritation.
This Day Cream also doubles as a primer for underneath makeup or can be worn on bare skin. It is also available in an untinted option.
Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream SPF25
While Jane Iredale's products are not 100% natural, I do consider them a safe and effective option. Jane Iredale does use some synthetic ingredients and naturally sourced, clean silicones, I do believe they are 100% non-toxic, and strive to create the safest, healthiest cosmetics.
If silicones aren't an issue for your skin (they can cause some to breakout), then I also recommend trying the Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream. It provides medium to full, matte coverage and is available in a range of shades. It is also very concentrated (pea-size for your whole face), so the one tube will certainly last a year or so with daily use.
You can use this as a full coverage foundation, or sheer it out by applying over well-moisturised skin or mixing with an oil.
Ere Perez Translucent Corn Perfecting Powder SPF15
This powder with SPF15 is super handy for touch-ups on the go, in its sleek mirrored compact, with a softly pressed powder and included puff to apply. A big fluffy brush or the included puff is perfect for dusting this powder where needed to absorb shine, blur imperfections for a flawless finish. I keep this in my handbag along with a concealer (Vapour's Illusionist, in case you're wondering) so I'm always prepared.
I hope you've found an option here that works for you, and if you have any questions you can leave them below or over on Instagram.
