AM routine for sensitive oily skin
✨My AM routine for sensitive oily skin✨ I usually take a simple route for my morning routines as I’m mostly focused on hydrating, soothing, and protecting my skin. ▶️ SeSPRING - Cleanse It Out Gel Cleanser - gentle daily gel cleanser formulated with camellia and lotus extracts to effectively cleanse the skin of all impurities without disrupting it’s moisture barrier. A wonderful morning cleanser to help cleanse my skin of all the oils and dirt I accumulated overnight. ▶️ ISNtree - Green Tea Fresh Toner - lightweight and refreshing toner that contains 80% green tea extract to revitalize the skin. I love the hydration this provides as well as the sebum regulating properties which is great for anyone with oily skin. Green tea also has antibacterial benefits to help prevent acne. ▶️ BE PLAIN - Cicaful Ampoule - soothing and hydrating ampoule that contains a whooping 84% of concentrated centella asiatica to help fortify the skin barrier. This instantly hydrated and reduces any redness on my skin. Great for when I’m dealing with inflamed acne breakouts. ▶️ NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum - gel textured brightening treatment serum containing a complex made up of encapsulated l-ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and bioactive fruit blend. This has been helping to keep my complexion bright and even while also providing antioxidant benefits. Pairs well with any spf. ▶️ SeSPRING - So Rich Hydrating Gel - medium weight cream that utilizes camellia and lotus extracts to provide intense hydration to the skin. I only need a small amount of this to keep my skin hydrated all day long. Does leave a more dewy finish though. ▶️ SKIN AQUA - UV Super Moisture Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ - lightweight gel textured chemical based sunscreen that provides strong sun protection. Such a great sunscreen for oily skin types. Doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and dries down to skin finish that has a slight sheen. Spot anything here that’s already in your own routine?
Product set my face on FIRE
I used Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen in SPF 45 this morning on my face and chest before a run and my face is BURNING. It’s like flames, flames on the side of my face (for all the Clue movie fans out there 😜). The burning only got worse when I rinsed off my face post run. I didn’t even use a cleansing product, just water! My poor face is still red and sore, so no makeup for me today! Lesson learned: this product is not good for the face, but seems to work well on the rest of the body. Anybody have a good, go to SPF for exercise that will stick through sweat and not make my face burst into flames?Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Suncreen, SPF 45

Sunscreen with no white cast!
Being a person of darker skin tone I was always hesitant to wear sunscreen due to MANY leaving a white cast and I didn’t want to walk around looking rediculous. So I almost never wore sunscreen, after realizing that I NEEDED SPF in my skincare routine. I did some research & this sunscreen has been my all time favorite! 🌞It leaves NO white cast 🌞Has awesome ingredients! 🌞It soaks in quick but leaving my face moisturized (not oily) 🌞 No fragrance (but really has no smell to it at all) 🌞Does NOT pill 🌞& it’s affordable! 🌞I get mine off amazon and in just a few days, it’s at my door. Super convenient! I could rave about This product all day. Are you darker skin toned? Do you have another awesome sunscreen that leaves no white cast? Let me know!

🌞 MUST HAVE SUNSCREEN 🌞
I must say prior to a month ago I was super guilty of never using sunscreen. Fast forward, I can’t stress enough how essential using sunscreen everyday is. The sun is so powerful and damages your skin barrier either immediately or overtime. ✨Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Mist SPF 55✨ This sunscreen is my absolute fave! It’s very lightweight and sheer and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. I love that it’s a spray so I don’t have to use my hands and it’s perfect to reapply throughout the day. AND it doesn’t leave a white cast on my face, which was a huge concern, of course. It’s $18 which is a super inexpensive sunscreen compared to others and protects your face from harmful UVA and UVB rays. 10/10 highly recommend! 🌞💛

SPF.... but at what cost?
I brought this for when I went camping. I get burned very easily so I wanted some products to allow me constant SPF. I thought this would be a good idea! It was! It worked! 💗 But the smell....THE SMELL!!! It’s horrible. 😞 I literally can’t stand it. It ruins all the benefits the setting spray does give. In addition, I wish the mist was more fine. It just sprays in large chunks and I’m not sure if it evenly gets my face. One part of my face gets all the product I swear. It works but the chunky spray and the smell really ruin the product for me. 🤢
COOLA-Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30
A summer must for dark skin!
This SPF by SuperGoop is the real deal! I was skeptical when I first hear about it because come on.... is there such a thing as clear sunscreen for Black women? Well, there is! It doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t cause face breakouts and is literally invisible. I love it! Went on a hike in 100 degree heat with it recently and it protected me from sunburn.

Best Mineral Sunscreen???
This mineral SPF retails for around $16 for 2 oz from Amazon or Asian/K-Beauty sites. Despite all the love for this product, there’s just as many mixed reviews. Read full review below to hear my thoughts ☀️ 💙 What it has 💙 » Zinc oxide mineral UV filter, niacinamide, antioxidants from the centella asiatica plant. Alcohol and essential oil-free. 💙 What I love about it 💙 » The finish is so neutral. I don’t like overly shiny or powdery/matte sunscreens. This one settles within 5 minutes to a flattering and lightweight satin finish. See my SPF stories highlights for an application video! » It has SPF 50+ PA++++ (PA++++ refers to UVA rays while SPF 50 refers to UVB) so the sun protection is nearly unparalleled, yet it doesn’t have a sunscreen look or feel. » I don’t experience pilling, and I’ve tested it over several different moisturizers to make sure- I even used primer on top of it with no issues. Note that I have combo/oily skin, and that I am applying ample product while using the 3-finger method of application. Cons: » It does blend in with no cast on my skin tone (which is pale af). But it does take more work to blend in versus other SPFs I own. » A whiteish color tends to collects in my eyebrows or around my nose (I wear glasses). This means it may not be best for those with facial hair. » I did expect a different finish based on the name. This is not silicone-like or powdery, nor is it gel-like or watery. It’s a lightweight and airy cream. Who would love it? » Normal, combo, or oily skins » Anyone with sensitivity to essential oils or chemical SPFs, but doesn’t usually enjoy the dry/matte finishes of many mineral sunscreens » Those that don’t like water/gel formats like Biore Aqua Rich (higher alcohol content can be drying for some) 💙 The verdict 💙 I personally will happily use this up and may repurchase, but it hasn’t taken over my #1 sunscreen slot. It has everything I’d want to see in an spf, but despite the name, it’s not as “watery” or gel-like as I tend to prefer with my sunscreens.
