beautyheaven says:

The INVISIBLE ZINC Sheer Defence Tinted Moisturiser SPF50 is a non-comedogenic, vegan and two-hour water-resistant lightweight moisturiser and high protection mineral sunscreen. Formulated with zinc oxide, the SPF 50 tinted moisturiser works to nourish, protect and prevent the appearance of premature ageing caused by UV exposure. 

The general consensus from Trial Team members was that the consistency of this product felt a lot more like a moisturiser than it did a typical sunscreen. From the scent (or lack thereof),  to the non-greasy finish, this formula was praised for acting as both a primer for makeup or, in some cases, taking the place of sheer coverage base makeup altogether. 

From beach days and outdoor workouts to running day-to-day errands and social outings, this small compact tube was found to be the perfect addition to the makeup, gym, and handbags of our Trial Team members. 

As far as which skin types this product is suitable for, members who typically experienced sensitivities found no issue with wearing this product every day.  Thanks to the dermatologist tested and fragrance free formula, no members who tried this product experienced breakouts, clogged pores or irritated skin. 

Oily skin types found the matte finish formula helped to reduce excess shine, and those with dry skin found the formula still left them with a healthy, dewy glow.

Members revealed that the important position of an SPF and lightweight tinted moisturiser in their makeup routine had finally been filled. 

The lightweight formula replaced the step of a sunscreen, moisturiser and for some, a BB cream. For this reason, members were excited to condense their makeup routine into one easy, dewy, nourishing and protecting step.

You say:

“This SPF50 tinted lightweight moisturiser slid on so easily and remained non greasy throughout the day. That meant no breakouts after use, or skin irritability. The light shade complimented my skin and smoothed out its tone.” – Belleful

“I was fortunate to receive this item to review and I am so glad I did. It is such a lightweight moisturiser that gives great sun protection without feeling greasy. I was able to wear this without my skin breaking out (which is what usually happens when I wear sunscreen). The tint gave a super light coverage which I liked on days I didn’t feel like wearing makeup.” – SparrowX

“I can actually say this is the sunscreen I have always been looking for. It goes on smooth and light but definitely gives great coverage. Non sticky and the light fragrance, makes this a joy to put on my face.” – Emmaj77

  1. This would be interesting to try. Last time I used IZ it was gluggy and thick and I really didn’t like it! Having oily skin and pimple prone skin, even though I’m 53 I wonder if it still would be too rich.

  2. I did use it in shade Light. Does not oxydise. Was good and wore it when needed tough protection summer time. Prefer lightweight spf and yet to find one. This one is heavy for my skin type.

  3. I LOVE IZ! While it does feel heavy on my skin, which I usually hate, especially in summer, I find it doesn’t bother me. If I (reluctantly) find myself in the sun, my skin feels shaded, i.e. it doesn’t feel like the sun is directly on my skin. I HATE the feel of sunlight on my skin!

  4. I was on the trial, wasn’t sure what to expect but I’m now converted!! The light shade was perfect for my fair skin, gave me great protection and it did not cause my combination skin any breakouts.

  5. Sounds like a great sunscreen. Unlike a lot of other people I usually don’t reach for tinted moisturisers or BB creams as the colour is always too dark (and noticeably dark for me, even though I always pick light) so that is the only thing which would keep me away from this product.

  6. I keep trying IZ, but it just doesn’t agree with my skin. I even bought this exact tinted 50+ just a few weeks ago and I found it super-greasy and the colour (light) was awful on me. I powdered to set and I ended up with a horrid, cakey mess on my face. I’m glad the trial team liked it, but I just cannot recommend it – ended up in the bin for me!
