  • Julianne Hough shared the tinted sunscreen that makes her feel “fresh and beautiful” all summer long.

  • The mineral-tinted formula is lightweight yet moisturizing, fragrance-free, and features convenient airless pump packaging.

Tinted sunscreens are an essential summer staple. While offering crucial protection from UV rays, they also provide a little extra oomph of coverage for even, natural-looking skin in a flash. That’s why Julianne Hough opts for a tinted formula—and her go-to, she recently shared with E! News, is the cult-favorite EltaMD UV Daily SPF 40 Tinted Sunscreen.

“For me, everything is about skin first and taking care of it. I love how this sunscreen makes me feel fresh and beautiful,” the actress and dancer said. She also recently sang its praises to New Beauty. “Skin care is everything to me and is always so important, especially in the summer!” she said. “EltaMD sunscreen is my go-to and has truly become my best friend.”

The best-selling bottle comes in convenient packaging with an airless pump dispenser for mess-free, hygienic application. And while it provides a tint to lighter skin tones, it blends seamlessly into dark skin without leaving behind a dreaded white cast. It’s lightweight and non-greasy, yet hydrating thanks to the addition of hyaluronic acid, which makes it ideal for normal and combination skin types. And last but not least, zinc oxide provides natural mineral sun protection that absorbs UV rays.

With over 13,000 Amazon reviews and a 4.6-star rating, customers and Hough have a shared love of the product. “It’s the best daily SPF, I've ever used. I am on my third bottle in six months,” one reviewer writes. “I don’t need anything else in the morning. I use this product, add a little blush, and I am out the door,” another raves. “Blends well, nice finish, absorbs completely, and gives a nice healthy finish (with no scent),” someone else writes.

And to add to its celebrity endorsements, Drew Barrymore loves it, too. “I break out from almost every sunblock. So I’m like ‘Do I want acne or brown pigmentation?’ It’s always been a crappy toss-up,” the actress wrote on Instagram in 2018. “Then I found this. It’s a lightweight sunscreen with a tiny bit of tint and a good number SPF. I have been long-time fan of this line. They have several options, and all are amazing!!!!!”

Barrymore’s not wrong. If tinted sunscreens aren’t your jam, there’s an un-tinted version, too. Plus, EltaMD has a slew of other derm-approved face SPFs, making it a cult favorite for a reason.

So stock up, and stay protected this summer!
