What is the finish?
It's a natural, slightly dewy finish.
Is it a chemical or physical SPF?
Our zinc oxide SPF is physical and GRASE (generally recognized as safe and effective) by the FDA. Non-nano mineral sunscreen offers SPF 50 for broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Because zinc oxide is mineral and non-nano, it won't enter your bloodstream.
Is there any white cast?
No way! As female identifying founders of color (both proud shade 3 wearers), it was highly important for us to ensure we formulated a mineral sunscreen that left zero white cast.
Do I need to wear anything with it?
All you need is this one easy step! This multitasker is your serum, moisturizer, SPF and sheer tint in one. No need to supplement with any other products, but if you'd like to layer something underneath, make sure to let it dry before application.
Is it suitable for all skin types?
Yes, it's skin type inclusive. We designed a non-comedogenic (fancy word meaning it doesn't clog your pores) formula with skincare actives that improve your skin barrier no matter the type or condition.
Is it safe for sensitive skin?
Always. We have sensitive skin too (eczema to be exact), so we created a clean formula that is third-party and dermatologist tested to be non-irritating and safe for sensitive skin.
Is it fragrance free?
Always! As well as paraben free, sulfate free, talc free, alcohol free, formaldehyde free, SLS free, dye free, phthalate free, chemical sunscreen free and cruelty free to name a few. All of our formulas meet Sephora Clean certification standards.
What about shipping and returns?
Your order ships free! No one likes to be hit with a shipping fee at checkout. We'll process your order within 2-3 days and send you a notification with tracking once it ships.
We also want you to absolutely love your Daybird product. We'd be happy to exchange (or refund if needed) within 60 days. Check out our return policy here.

- Ashlyn F.Verified Buyer2 weeks agoRated 5 out of 5 starsPlease restock shade 2!!
This is the holy grail of face products. It’s lightweight, goes on smooth, and is the perfect amount of sheer coverage that I need. This was even my base layer for my wedding makeup!! However, if I have known how long it’d be until shade 2 was back in stock, I would’ve bought 2-3 bottles 😭
- Becky W.Verified Buyer2 months agoRated 5 out of 5 starsI live in Mexico where the sun is SO STRONG
I am 63 and very active outdoors athletically! I do not like to look as if I have a lot of make up on. However, I need coverage due to sun and skin discolorations. Daybird fits the bill as well as being an amazing product! It goes on easily and SO SMOOTHLY! I absolutely LOVE it!
- Becky W.Verified Buyer2 months agoRated 5 out of 5 starsAre you ever going to return with Shade #2
Its the absolute best! However, I cannot order #1, or #3…. They would not work…. I am getting desperate!
- KatelVerified Buyer3 months agoRated 5 out of 5 starsMy go-to, everyday essential
This is the most versatile, no-fuss, great-feeling tinted cream with SPF I've ever used. I used to be an Ilia diehard but as I've moved into my late 40s, I noticed it started to really dry out my skin.
When it comes to tinted face cream, I'm usually so daunted by choosing the right shade—and it never seems like I land with the right one. From the start, using Daybird's Shade 2 was my favorite, but I've also used Shades 1 alone (and mixed with Shade 3)—and I'm continuously stunned at how adaptable their shades seem to be.
I care that the product is cruelty-free and uses ingredients I care about, plus I just really dig Daybird's values and appreciate their mission. Thank you for creating such a wonderful product!

This is my third bottle and I absolutely love it. Light feeling on the skin, natural coverage and great protection from the sun.
"There are mornings when a beauty magic wand would work wonders. With just abibbidi-bobbidi-boo, your skin-care and complexion routine would be complete. Although no such wand exists, the Daybird Tinted Skincare comes in close."
"Multi-tasking products are a must for moms. (Say that four times fast.) This one checks all of her AM skincare needs, acting a serum, moisturizer, foundation, and SPF 50 all-in-one."
"For skin care that isn’t all about covering up every freckle or perceived imperfection on your face, choose the Daybird Tinted Skincare with broad spectrum SPF 50 mineral sunscreen."
"things we’re loving this week: this 4-in-1 tinted moisturizer with SPF"
"10-step skin care routines followed by 20 minutes of applying makeup? Who has time for that? Thanks to the team at Daybird, the answer is no."
"It provides SPF 50, hydration, and ingredients like niacinamide (to increase collagen production) and bisabolol (to reduce inflammation). The sheer tint allows you to skip makeup, too, if you want."
