With summer in full swing, it can be easy to forget to put on SPF when you’re on vacation with your BFF or spending time at your family’s beach house for the entire summer (anyone else trying to have a Belly Conklin summer from The Summer I Turned Pretty?). But SPF is so important, bestie — not only does it protect you from wrinkles down the line as you age, but it also reduces your risk of getting sunburn and skin cancer. And thankfully, incorporating SPF into your skincare routine is easier than ever with the invention of — voila!tinted moisturizers with SPF!

Think of a tinted moisturizer with SPF like if foundation and sunscreen had a baby — not only do they provide the blurring and smoothing effects of a lightweight foundation, but also the skin protection of a sunscreen. They’re easy to reapply and layer, and they typically don’t feel as heavy as a normal foundation (because really, who wants their face to be caked with makeup in the summertime?).

Here are seven of the best tinted moisturizers with SPF, all with at least 14 shades to choose from and under $50.

Tower 28 SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen

At $30, the Tower 28 SunnyDays SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen is a two-in-one mineral sunscreen that protects your face while also smoothing out your skin. This gluten free, vegan, and cruelty free tinted sunscreen is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin (and is even safe for those with eczema!). Formulated with prickly pear, white sage, and aloe vera, this tinted sunscreen comes in 14 buildable shades.
