Green Tea


  • It has a very soft tint that hides just enough blemishes to not look caked on. It feels lovely on my face. I will be re buying this product again and recommending to my friends. It feels and looks good and does the job. Very happy.


  • Amazing product!! I've used natural sunscreen for a while now, but was looking to try something new, and came across Little Urchin, and we are so happy! The product is smooth and glides on, it isn't claggy, and rubs in easily. Your skin feels soft and nourished afterwards. The whole family loves it! We will definitely be purchasing again.


  • I love the tinted sunscreen! It does on so beautifully, and you only need a little to gain full coverage like a makeup foundation with a beautiful dewy finish.


Tinted Sunscreen: Protection and Perfection in One

Ever wondered how to protect your skin from the sun while enhancing your natural glow? It’s time you learned more about tinted sunscreen. 

This game-changer not only shields your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays but also complements your skin tone. At Little Urchin, we’ll uncover the magic of tinted sunscreen and how it can revolutionise your skincare routine.


Getting to know tinted sunscreens

What is tinted sunscreen, and how does it differ from regular sunscreen?

Tinted sunscreen, a delightful blend of sun protection and natural colour, offers a unique twist on traditional sun protection.

Regular sunscreen is designed to shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Tinted sunscreen goes beyond that, as it reflects away visible light. This is achieved by combining mineral UV filters like zinc oxide with added pigments. The result? A tinted sunscreen for face and body that complements your natural skin tone while providing robust sun protection.

How long does the sun protection factor (SPF) last in tinted sunscreen?

Sunscreens, whether they’re body sunscreens or waterproof face sunscreen, tend to rub off over time. This is especially true when exposed to sweat.

While the duration of SPF in tinted sunscreen isn’t set in stone, some research shows that the amount of sunscreen on the skin can decrease within two hours, no matter if you’re staying indoors or enjoying the outdoors. This is why it’s crucial to reapply your mineral tinted sunscreen regularly, ensuring your skin remains protected throughout the day.

The benefits of tinted sunscreen

On-the-go skin filter

Did you know that makeup and other cosmetic products that claim to have SPF content cannot match the power of sunscreen? But with tinted sunscreen, you can achieve the coverage you’re looking for.

Imagine having a skin filter that travels with you wherever you go – that’s the magic of tinted sunscreen. It not only evens out your skin tone but also subtly conceals those little imperfections. Once you try it, you might find yourself reaching less often for that foundation or concealer. 

The skin benefits unveiled

Tinted sunscreen isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s packed with skin benefits too.

Research shows that tinted sunscreen, particularly those enriched with iron oxide, can significantly curb the recurrence of melasma and reduces hyperpigmentation. So, whether you’re considering a tinted sunscreen SPF 50 or an affordable tinted sunscreen, you’re investing in a product that protects and enhances your skin’s health and radiance.


What are some recommended brands or products of tinted sunscreen available on the market?

When it comes to the best tinted sunscreen, Little Urchin’s Natural Tinted Sunscreen stands out. This natural sunscreen offers robust UVA and UVB protection, hydrates your skin, and enhances its beautiful tone. The ingredients we use are obtained from nature and are either used in their natural form or processed before being used in our products.

And if you’re looking for organic tinted sunscreen, you’ll be glad to know that ours contains certified organic ingredients. It is enriched with green tea extract, cucumber extract, and rosehip extract that offer soothing, cooling, and antioxidant benefits for your skin.

Moreover, it contains SPF 30 and is three-hours water resistant, so you’re protected against sunburn, skin damage, and premature ageing. We also take pride in offering a tinted sunscreen that’s non-toxic, has a three-year shelf life, and is Australian-made.

Perfecting your tinted sunscreen application

When it comes to applying tinted sunscreen, timing and technique are everything. Begin by generously applying the lotion to clean, dry skin. Allow it to set for a few minutes before applying any base makeup.

Aim to do this twenty minutes before you step out into the sun. This allows the sunscreen to fully bind to your skin, providing optimal protection.

Remember, the secret to a flawless finish is frequent reapplication. Aim to reapply every one to two hours, especially if you’re perspiring, swimming, or towel drying.

While our hydrating SPF sunscreen provides excellent protection, it’s important to remember that sunscreens are only one part of sun protection. Avoid prolonged exposure to high-risk sun rays and ensure frequent reapplication for effective sun protection.
