a truly unseen sunscreen! 🌞👀
I know a ton of people are searching for a new sunscreen after the PuritoPURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ one has been recalled, and I was lucky enough to test out the BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 ($15.99 USD) recently. as an esthetician, my biggest and #1 recommendation to combat anti-aging is RELIGIOUS use of sunscreen as early as you can start. 🧖♀️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, prone to hyperpigmentation, light/medium skintone 🧴FORMULA: as seen in the photo, the Black Girl sunscreen is fairly thick and a little goes a long way. it’s not viscous by any means and is a thicker, creamier formula that goes on like a lotion. 👃🏼SCENT: this sunscreen has a typical sunscreen aroma, which is fairly strong and lingers throughout the day. if you’re sensitive to the smell of sunscreen, I wouldn’t recommend because the scent was strong, especially with a mask on. ⏱WEAR: my skin is naturally oily/dehydrated, so when I first put this on I was a little ~shook~ that it immediately made me so dewy and was scared that it would make me look like a frying pan. it did NOT, however, turn me into a greaseball or get too shiny throughout the day and gave me just enough for a glass skin, moisturized look. I don’t have a deeper complexion, which this sunscreen is known for, so I couldn’t attest to whether it gave me a strong white cast but I do experience a slight white cast with my Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50 sunscreen which is tinted and a lot thicker, as seen above. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ overall, I would give this sunscreen 5/5 stars! I would definitely purchase it again even though I have oily/dehydrated skin. if you have dry, normal/combo skin, I think this would be AMAZING for you. if you have oily skin, I would test it out a bit if possible, because it may feel a bit heavy on your skin, but is a great option for a hydrating, winter sunscreen.
My Normal/Dry Skin Routine
Lord I should update you guys on my skincare routine. Cleanser: I use CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin and to be honest it’s actually really nice :). At first in my previous post I gave it a bad review, but it’s pretty nice and I’ve seen less acne. Toner: For toner I use peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner and it’s soooo hydrating I was actually shocked- it doesn’t contain any alcohol (thank goodness), so my face doesn’t burn. Treatment: I use COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and this is also very hydrating too I really do love it. Just with this product it makes my face seem like I put everything on it already. Moisturizer:I use CeraVe - Healing Ointment for my moisturizer and it makes me skin feel so smoothhhhhh-like I literally look like a glazed donut and I love it. Sunscreen: For sunscreen I use PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ which is really good and it doesn’t leave a white cast..but the problem is that I heard the spf is actually 15+ and not 50+. I will wait till I hear more stuff about it but I’m just going to finish it up since I’m at the end. :)))))
A perfect daily sunscreen
The sunscreen obsession continues...Ever since I got the soft airy UV essence I haven’t reached for anything else. The name almost perfectly describes this SPF, as it really is soft and airy on the skin. The good: + 50 SPF and broad spectrum protection. + This glides on SO easily. It looks kind of like a white cream when you first squeeze it out, but then it just magically disappears into the skin. + Absolutely no white cast and doesn’t leave behind a shiny residue. + After I put this on, I swear my skin feels so soft! + It’s great for reapplication, I feel like it doesn’t affect my makeup at all underneath (note: I typically go for minimal / makeup these days). It smooths over any makeup super easily. And it won’t pill under makeup. + Doesn’t clog my pores or causes breakouts (I was fairly confident since this has a more gel-like texture like my daily moisturizers). I believe this product has niacinimide which has been proven to help with excess sebum production. + Its alcohol-free! The not so good: - I believe this one has some essential oil in it... but I don’t find it irritating at all so I’m willing to ignore that part. - Like most kbeauty skincare products, I need to order this online, so the wait is almost always 2-3 weeks for delivery. Is it worth it? Yus. Although it’s around $34 CAD, it is a bigger bottle (80ml of product versus my other kbeauty sunscreens which are 50ml of product). AND it works well and doesn’t break me out. Would I repurchase? Definitely. I feel like this is worth every penny which makes me feel more inclined to reapply a good amount each day. Which is essentially the point of sunscreen so I think it’s probably a good thing. Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)

Two MUST Have Mineral Sunscreens
I’m lucky enough to have started my skincare journey much earlier in life than most people. I’ve been wearing sunscreen daily since I was about 15 years old, but just recently got into mineral sunscreens as I’ve heard they suit oily, acne prone skin better. I also think that the zinc oxide used in mineral sunscreens really helps ease any sensitive I may have from acne breakouts, which is a major plus. PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block This is a really, really beautiful mineral sunscreen with few ingredients and to me, it feels the most luxurious and “non-sunscreeny” between the two. It really does feel like you’re applying a watery creamy on to your skin, which is great for someone like me who as oilier skin. It’s not heavy or greasy in the least and blends in super quickly. Its perfect for oilier skin as it’s oil-free and dries down a bit more matte. It’s also unscented which I love! The only reason I didn’t give this one five stars is because it tends to cake up around oilier areas such as the creases of my nose and sometimes in my eyebrows. Unfortunately, it will leave a slight white cast on darker skin tones, especially if not rubbed in properly, so keep this in mind! elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 This has got to be one of the best, if not THE best mineral sunscreen out there right now. What I love most about this one is the smooth, silky texture and how moisturizing, yet not oily this is. It gives oily skin that healthy sheen that ppl with dry skin can pull off effortlessly without looking like they sprayed a can of Pam on their foreheads. It also has a beautiful ingredients list with niacinamide high up on the list, which is always a plus! Great for sensitive and acne prone skin types as well I want to add that neither of these products irritates my eyes; I have oily eyelids and sensitive eyes and sunscreen seeping into my eyes is a daily occurrence 🙄

Top 5 sunscreen - especially for acne-prone skin
Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I will be the first to admit that I was not serious about sun protection in my youth, but now I’m on the sunscreen train and never coming off. One of the reasons why I never wanted to wear face sunscreen was because it would leave me with inevitable breakouts. It took me a long time to find formulas that work with my skin and Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen is now my go-to. 💛💛💛 What I really love about it is that it’s oil-free and doubles as a makeup primer. It literally glides across the skin with its velvety formula and leaves it prepped for makeup, so you don’t have to worry about layering anything on top of it and potentially overwhelming your pores. (I do, however, add a little bit of a glowing on top of it to my high points for a dewier glow but Unseen Sunscreen has the rest of your skin covered!) 💛💛💛 The only thing I cannot vouch for is it’s shine controlling properties. My skin is oily enough to begin with and if it’s a stressful or sweaty day, there’s nothing that can stop my shine (this low-key sounds inspirational?? Lol) 💛💛💛 I would definitely recommend to a friend, especially if they have acne-prone skin. It's a little expensive ($32) compared to other sunscreens, but it really works and a little goes a loooong way.

TATCHA - Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++ As you can see i love tatcha products. This sunscreen does not leave a white cast or leave a greasy residue after you apply it. Its lightweight and blends so beautifully, leaving poreless looking skin. It contains Japanese wild rose - tightens pores and smooths skin texture; loquat leaf extract - rich source of antioxidants to protect and calm skin. Tatcha’s sunscreen contains Zinc Oxide 15% (suggested percentage is 15%-20%) is a mineral based sunscreen, it reflects harmful UVA/UVB rays off the surface of the skin. Zinc oxide has one of the broadest spectrum protective qualities. Also, zinc oxide is non-comedogenic, which means its unlikely to cause breakouts or acne! Another top ingredient in Tatcha’s sunscreen is Octisalate 5%, an emollient that keeps skin soft and prevents the formula from degrading in the sun. And obviously their other main ingredient is Japanese wild rose, which supports natural circulation and calms with antioxidants. I am on my second tube and would definitely repurchase. I love this sunscreen addition to my skin care routine. Its $65 for a 60ml tube, i know steep, but it’s so good. Also, important to reapply every 2 hours while exposed to sun!

My favorite sunscreen for ALL skin types🙌🏼🌞
When you’re out in the sun it’s so so sooo important to wear SPF. I covered a lot of this information in my previous post about sunscreen, but i got a lot of questions asking for good sunscreens for sensitive skin. Elta MD is by far my favorite one. It is perfect for any skin type, especially those with sensitive skin and acne prone skin. EltaMD UV Clear helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to discoloration and breakouts associated to acne and rosacea. It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), hyaluronic acid and lactic acid, ingredients that promote the appearance of healthy-looking skin! It’s so lightweight and doesn’t leave a white cast on the skin at all 🙌🏼. It’s seriously great! Their full body sunscreen is amazing as well, I truly love this brand for SPF💕 #sunscreen #SPF #CherieCreator elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46

I S-cream for Suncreen!
I always had trouble finding a sunscreen that will work for my skin without leaving a white-residue on my face. I was never a fan of creamy sunscreens however I decided to try it and now I have been using this Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen 50spf for almost a year now. Besides liking the no white- residue it does not leave my skin oily and no breakouts which is great because my skin is sensitive and acne prone. This is also great not just for the face but the body too. In fact this sunscreen also hydrates my skin. It is a creamy sunscreen but lightweight and fast-absorbing. I use this everyday under my makeup and what i like is that my makeup looks smooth underneath the layers of makeup I wear. Even wearing this sunscreen alone gives my skin a glowy look. I recommend this product to all skin types but if you’re more on the oily side I recommend to go with their matte sunscreen. You can get this sunscreen in 3 sizes 2.4oz- $22 7.5oz- $32 18oz- $48 Supergoop! - Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA ++++
