A sunscreen for sensitive skin???

Disclaimer! I have combination, more oily sensitive and acne prone skin. What may work for me may not work for you! So there’s been a lot of hype around the Ultra Violette brand and their line of sunscreens. They currently have 3 different face sunscreens, 1 body sunscreen and a lip balm. I tried their ULTRA VIOLETTE - Clean Screen SPF 30 Mattifying Mineral Skinscreen
which is a “partial physical- based SPF“. First things first, I can confirm that for me it did do what it claims, which is not inflame your skin- which is a massive plus. The downsides for this sunscreen is mainly the finish and colour. This sunscreen is slightly tinted with a pinky under tone which leaves a noticeable “white cast” on my face- not so great for my fellow POC. The texture is very light and quite smooth, but this tends to pill and looks quite “cakey” after a few hours of use. And if I’ll need to be reapplying sunscreen, I wouldn’t want to be with this one. I don’t think it’s been a lost hope and definitely would recommend other people to try this, and this may be good for someone with more normal skin, but I’ll definately be gifting this to a friend or my sisters. I haven’t lost hope for this brand and will hopefully be trying out their other sunscreens and be updating you all once I do! Feel free to drop any of your favourite sunscreens you would recommend as well!

Disclaimer! I have combination, more oily, sensitive acne- prone skin. What may work for me may not work for you! If anyone remembers first getting into Skincare or K-Beauty, you’ll know that you would’ve been introduced to this beauty. There is a reason why this has been a long running favourite in the beauty community for sunscreens, because it’s just so too good 😂 dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ The texture super light and is like the in between of a water cream and gel and goes on very smooth and doesn’t leave a tacky or sticky feeling afterwards. There’s also no smell and is SPF 50+ PA++++ . For someone with more oily skin though, this tends to make me shiny after a few hours but re applying doesn’t seem to be a bother- so I wouldn’t say this sunscreen could be sweat proof. This seems so sit pretty well under makeup though, but would definitely recommend putting on a primer beforehand, even if your doing a minimal look for the day. I’ve been restocking this sunscreen for over 2 years now and don’t think I’ll stop because whenever I do go through a “reset” period with my skincare, this is usually the sunscreen I reach for. For someone who absolutely hates sunscreens, this sunscreen has really changed my perspective and experience with them.

This is going to be a short maybe not so sweet description/review of these small sample sized sunscreens that I was able to try in the last month! Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I’m not a big fan of chemical sunscreens because they contain a chemical that contributes to coral reef bleaching + the ingredients can be irritating for sensitive skin types! This formula, however, is “reef-safe” because it does not contain oxybenzone. I like this sunscreen because it acts like a primer and is totally clear! Great for darker skin types like me! It is expensive though so I’ll probably won’t repurchase knowing there are cheaper and better sunscreens out there (try Korean sunscreens). BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ This mineral sunscreen has squalane which is a great oil for our lovely face! This formula is good for dark skin types but it can leave a white cast (check out YouTube videos to see white cast ratings). Whenever I used this, I didn’t use a moisturizer because this is pretty moisturizing (almost too much). I haven’t used this lately because it’s summer though I probably won’t use it until the drier winter months! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 This is another mineral sunscreen that is suited for dark skin types too! I like this brand (recently there have been discrepancies and controversy regarding their cruelty free status due to selling in mainland China) & their products never fail! I like the glow this sunscreen gives me and it’s not too thick or anything! It does feel a little gritty but this may be because it was in my beach bag for a day… Still, I would probably repurchase this if I get another coupon from Ulta (this is little costly too for me) but for now I’ll stick to my Purito Centella sunscreen. Also, none of these sunscreens break me out! I have acne-prone, oily skin too!

I have combination skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. I’m also someone who doesn’t like anything with a sticky feeling on my face! 🌱This is the Centella Green Level Unscented Sunscreen and it is gorgeous. ✨First of all, it passes the Not Sticky test and doesn’t leave a white cast at all. It’s basically another hydrating moisturizer for your face in the way it applies and interacts with the skin. For this reason, reapplying doesn’t feel gross or heavy and this is one of the few sunscreens I actually enjoy reapplying throughout the day which is so important! ✨This has Hyaluronic Acid in it as well as Centella to enhance the skin barrier which provides protection from ultraviolet rays and any external stressors. It also avoids things like fragrance and essential oils so it is good for sensitive skin. ✨This is $16 for 2 oz which in my opinion is great for what you’re getting. What’s your favorite sunscreen? 🌞

PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block ♥︎ Zinc Oxide - blocks damaging UV rays; its soothing properties is great for sensitive skin ♥︎ Titanium Oxide - protects skin from UVA/UVB rays and a stronger protection from UVB rays ♥︎ Niacinamide - strengthen skin barrier by preventing moisture loss - I’ve used this for approximately a month and 60ml is definitely enough! - ★ Doesn’t go in my pores ★ Good for my rosacea cheeks ★ My appearance looks younger b/c of the matte finish ☆ Has a minimal white cast ☆ Time consuming b/c it pills if you don’t apply little by little ☆ Does not go well on my dry areas and pills a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - • Recommend for lighter skin tones, oily skin and acne prone skin ~ Would I purchase this again? Nope.

hellooooo people for this post I’m sharing my thoughts on my favorite SPF at the moment: Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ 🥰 I’ve been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I decided to try it because it was recommended from one of my fave instagrammers @whatsonvisface and all my other SPFs leave horrible white casts or grease on my face, so I really needed a new one! And y’all- I love it! It really doesn’t leave any sort of white cast on my face and maybe makes my face look a little shiny (for which it loses a star) but nothing too many and goes really well under makeup- no heavy feeling, no pilling or anything! After dealing with a million other SPFs that broke me out, left horrible white casts and made me greasy, this feels like a godsend! It has never irritated my skin and has never made me break out in the 3 weeks I’ve been using it. There is fragrance in this version which is very subtle, and although it has never irritated me there is an alternative fragrance-free version you could purchase instead! I can definitely see myself repurchasing this once this runs out, as I use it everyday! I believe I purchased it on amazon for $15, which I think is unbeatable and well worth the money and effort! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple daily sunscreen to incorporate into their routine.

Meet my absolutely favorite sunscreen! Paulas choice youth extending hydrating fluid SPF 50. This sunscreen is a super thin formula that contains antioxidants and broad spectrum sun protection to prevent sun damage and early signs of aging. It also contains glycerin making it hydrating and free of any fragrance! This has a thin water like texture that leaves a dewy finish on the skin and sinks right in! Because of the super thin texture, it is perfect to use under make up or on its own! I have been using this product for about six months now and a little goes a long way. With it’s super gentle formula, it does not give me any irritation or breakouts. I cannot recommend this enough! Paulas choice makes some of my favorite sunscreens and what I love is this one is great for all skin types. This retails for $33 however I always purchase from her site when they offer a discount code, which is pretty often! This SPF will forever be a staple in my routine ☺️ 5/5 stars 🤩 PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid
