love sun body-Moisturizing Mineral Face Sunscreen SPF 30
This is the Supergoop! Sunscreen mouse with spf 50! This is my all time favorite sunscreen it’s so light weight and melts into the skin leaving no white caste or gray sheen of color. I moved onto my second bottle a couple months and the first bottle lasted me 6 months with daily use. It’s got 3.4 fl. Oz of product so definitely worth the price of 34 dollars. The product is discontinued but they have the body mouse which I love just as much and can be used on the face of course. Supergoop! - Super Power Sunscreen Mousse Why it’s my favorite: -REEF SAFE!! - Includes blue sea extract which protects your skin from free radicals (free radicals speed up skin aging and soak up the lipids in your skin. You basically don’t want that bear your skin. - Has coconut oil in it so it’s very moisturizing You can find this product on www. Dermstore.com

My first thoughts on this SPF!
First of all- sorry for looking exhausted in this video- 4 hours of sleep the night before and the coffee hadn’t kicked in yet! But OMG YESSSSSSS Loving 👏🏼 on👏🏼this👏🏼 SPF👏🏼 Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 this is my dream, especially living where I live in Southern California and with my skin type. When doing some research, based on my understanding of ingredients and what Supergoop!’s website recommended, oily/ combo skin folks could benefit from their Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40so, searching for something for more of a dry skin type, I went for the Unseen to try. It has 0 white cast- great visually for all skin tones which is wonderful! It has isododecane, which contributes to the formulas smooth and non-greasy feel. It glides very, very easily across the face. While I would say a little bit goes a long way (which it feels like because of how easily it glides!) sunscreen is a product I believe is always “more is more,” in your skincare routine. Being someone who loves to use minimal make up most of the time, this is a great product to use. I can’t give an honest review on how this product works with glammed up/ medium-heavy coverage liquid foundations and concealers, because I do not use those. This leaves your face with a velvety look and feel! Let me know your thoughts on this product below.

100% clean sunscreen for Summer
Sure, the world may feel like it's upside down at the moment, but summer is still on the horizon; although the getaways may look a little different nowadays, the sun is just as scorching—even from your bedroom window so let’s talk sunscreen. Of the 1,400+ sunscreens tested by the EWG, only 5% met the safety standards and over 40% were listed as potentially contributing to skin cancer. The other scary thing is of the 16 common ingredients, only 2 have been proven safe — Zinc and titanium dioxide. Trust me, I know how confusing it can be to see buzz words from brands to make you think that you are making a safe decision. When it comes to protecting your skin you want sunscreen that will reflect the sun and not one that absorbs the sun. It’s almost impossible to find a mineral sunscreen without a white cast and one that feels super sticky. By nature, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide have a hue and a texture that’s part of their chemical properties. "Zinc and titanium are white minerals. The smaller the particle size and and the less percentage of the mineral, the less white it will look," noted holistic dermatologist Cybele Fishman, M.D., explaining why most mineral screens have a white cast to some degree. That said, I love Raw Element’s tinted option that’s far less chalky than others. Raw Elements is the best natural zinc oxide sunscreen for you if you're a highly athletic outdoor enthusiast and serious about wanting a 100% natural and clean sunscreen.
The most elegant & heavy-duty sunscreen yet!
If you frequent any Asian Beauty subs you know you’ve heard of this sunscreen! TheKanebo - ALLIE Extra UV Gel Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ is touted as a holy grail for many in the sunscreen community. But is it worth the $25-$35 dollars it retails for? PROS Water-proof! It will stay put when swimming and won’t wash off without some serious effort. It creates almost a film-like barrier that you can feel on your skin when you first put it on but disappears after a few minutes of wear and I suspect this film is what makes it so good at protecting you from the elements. Sweat-proof! I actually put on this sunscreen when hiking. It’s pretty sweat-proof though I wouldn’t be able to tell you for how long since I always reapply after 2 hours. Resistant to friction! You know the feeling when you just put on your sunscreen and now you have to take off your t-shirt or put on a hat and your sunscreen comes off when it touches your face? No more! As long as the sunscreen is dry, it won’t come off! CONS If you have deep skin of color, you should consider skipping this. I wear foundation shade MUFE Y405, for reference and the white cast is visible on me. You have to double cleanse really well in order to take off the sunscreen before bed. This sunscreen is a workhorse and not easily broken down. If you have skin that will be easily irritated by too much cleansing, or haven’t found the right cleansing products for you, consider skipping this sunscreen. When rubbing in, you must work quickly and in thin layers. Additionally you have to let the layers dry completely between applications. The friction-proof qualities of this product make it so that if you accidentally let a big glop dry it will dry thick and white and will be difficult to spread out. Make-up can be difficult to spread on top, depending on the formula. For example, my wax RCMA foundation is easy to apply on top of this. But my sticky cream blush is not and will apply streaky. 💰💰💰. At $30ish for 40g you are not getting a lot of bang for your buck. Summary If you have a deep skin tone, definitely don’t get this unless you are willing to put up with the white cast. And honestly, as excellent as it is, I would really only recommend it for outdoor activities or when you need something heavy-duty due to the steep price point.

A GREAT Sunscreen 💛
This mineral sunscreen by Versed is hands down amazing. This sunscreen has a SPF of 35 and is described as having three way protection against environmental pollution, electronic pollution, and the sun. This product is also vegan and cruelty free ( something I love seeing in my skin care products💕). I found this formula to be very interesting due to its orangey color, but it left no trace of color on my skin and blended in nicely. It’s also very lightweight compared to most sunscreens so I applied a little more moisturizer before hand and was left with a very natural, slightly dewy finish which I loooove. The price for this sunscreen is a tad steep, being about $22 for 1.7 fl. oz. But it’s one of the best mineral sunscreens I’ve come across so I’m totally fine with the price. Overall I give this product 5 out of 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 VERSED - Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum
