When I met Hailey Bieber at a beauty event back in 2018, the first thing I noticed about her was her skin. It was effortlessly radiant without a pore in sight, yet somehow managed to look like it was completely devoid of foundation. At the time, I assumed her natural glow could be attributed to soon-to-be-wedded bliss (fun fact: she and Justin Bieber got hitched at an NYC courthouse a few hours after our conversation, which I definitely don’t talk about enough), but four years later I now know the real benefactor behind her luminous complexion: EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 ($33).

Bieber recently shared her daily skin-care routine to TikTok, and the tinted SPF (along with what looks like a moisturizer sample from her upcoming beauty brand, Rhode, along with Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer, and Kosas Revealer Concealer) was front and center. And let me tell you, any dermatologist would be proud.

As we’ve previously reported, the formula is among the top recommended amongst derms thanks to the mineral, broad-spectrum UV protection that it offers, and the fact that it looks gorgeous on nearly any skin tone.
“It fulfills all of the criteria I prefer in a sunscreen,” says Dr. Charisse Dolitsky from Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York. “It has broad-spectrum, mineral-based coverage with high SPF, it’s formulated with zinc protection, which offers the widest spectrum of protection against both UVA and UVB rays, it’s low in chemicals. Elta provides more physical, rather than chemical, which is safer, and well-tolerated by those with sensitive skin and it doesn’t clog pores.”
Other derms agree with her, calling the formula “cosmetically elegant, easy to layer, and effective,” and “perfect for daily use.” Reviewers love it, too, and the product has earned more than 900 five-star reviews on Dermstore’s website.
As someone who has used EltaMD’s sunscreen for years (at the recommendation of my dermatologist, of course), I wholeheartedly agree with each and every one of these sentiments. The formula melts easily into skin, and evens out my complexion so beautifully that I often skip out on applying foundation on top of it. The fact that the formula offers SPF 40 protection (which is even higher than what derms recommend for everyday use) is just an added bonus.
For a no-makeup makeup look that’s worthy of an A-list celeb (… and a lot of dermatologists, and this particular senior beauty editor), Elta MD’s Tinted sunscreen has quite literally got you covered.
Yes, you do need sunscreen every day. Check out the video below to find out why.
