BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN🖤
you might be laughing at how short my fingers are, but did you apply your sunscreen today? 😗 hi all! my name is jada, i am a content creator that is apart of the instagram beauty community, and now i am on cherie! i’ve been using this lovely sunscreen for a few months now, and i fell in love with it. but why is sunscreen important? sunscreen helps protect us from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays: UVA and UVB. long term exposure to these rays result in damage to the skin's thickest layer – the dermis – and result in fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation. it is important to apply spf every single day, and to even re-apply sunscreen every couple of hours! for starters, this spf contains very necessary ingredients, such as: 🥑 avocado: moisturizes, reduces signs of aging, and treats sunburns. 🧴jojoba oil: soothes and hydrates the skin. 🍫cacao: provides powerful anti-oxidants and evens out your skin tone. 🥕 carrot juice: contains vitamin C which enables it to promote healing. 🌻 sunflower oil: prevents skin irritation from sunburn and other skin irritants. now as for my thoughts: being a person of color, it’s always been quiet difficult finding a sunscreen that won’t make me look like casper the ghost. THIS, however, does not. it blends in very beautifully and smoothly, and provides the most maximum hydration. with that being said, the only con about this product is that it might be a little TOO moisturizing. it makes me look my already extremely oily skin even oiler. it can sometimes be difficult to remember how much sunscreen to use, which is why i use the #twofingermethod! using two fingers to apply sunscreen is just the prefect amount to apply your sunscreen. it may seem a bit much, but it’s worth it! what is your favorite sunscreen?

Wearing Sunscreen is Essential! ☀️✨
And thanks to@cherieBlack Girl Sunscreen is one of my new SPF essentials. The creator of Black Girl Sunscreen created it as a solution for Black women struggling to find sun protection. Also as a way to encourage women of color, to spend more time exploring nature and the great outdoors! Which is great because this sunscreen is water-resistant & works for the face and the body. There’s even a kids version available! The formula is also free of reef-damaging chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, it’s completely free of parabens and fragrances as well. For me and my dark skin, it’s important for me to find a sunscreen that is going to protect my skin, & do it without the dreaded white cast. This sunscreen provides all of that! I use about a nickel size of this, & rub it into my skin. It applies nicely & isn’t ashy, greasy, or sticky. Most importantly, it's completely invisible upon my skin, & leaves it with a perfect glow afterwards! I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Especially to my girls with melanin. You definitely won’t regret it. This is available at Target for $15.99 for a 3 fl oz tube. Thank you Cherie for sending me this to review! ☀️ BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30
No Casper vibes with this SPF!
I received the highly recommended Black Girl Sunscreen moisturizer from @cherieto review. BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 I don’t have much to say about this product except that it’s the bomb! Especially if you have any melanin to your complexion 😉 This SPF leaves no white cast so none of that dreaded Casper look. On top of providing sun protection it’s also super moisturizing enough so that I don’t need to apply additional moisturizer prior. Lastly this stuff does NOT smell like the spf we are used to. As someone with hyperpigmentation and dark spots I cannot skip sunscreen ever! And this helps protect and moisturize my delicate face
🙅♀️What I’ve been using to combat pigmentation and dark spots this summer☀️ The lixirskin Vitamin C paste is just a lovely mask. It really tingles but I feel my skin is really a lot brighter after one use 8.5/10 sunday riley Good Genes is just a brilliant brightening product and it really does help with skin cell turnover so you can say bye to surface scarring and dry skin 👋 8.5/10 The Ceo Glow is a non pore clogging oil and really does help to brighten and protect against free radical damage. Feels amazing too 8/10 By far my favourite Vitamin C product is the drsebagh Vitamin C powder cream. This stuff is powerful and works miracles on pigmentation. The only reason I’m not giving it a 10/10 is that it’s a little hard to use (I find myself tipping the powder onto my tilted face to rub it in) 9/10 And lastly one of the most important things to prevent scars getting darker/ Melasma appearing is spf! I’m loving this one from Biore for my oily skin in the summer. I don’t apply any moisturiser before and it looks great under makeup 9/10

BLACK DOES CRACK ‼️ We obviously don't age like milk. But we still age. And we DO get sun damage too! Stop 👏🏾 thinking 👏🏾 you 👏🏾 don't 👏🏾 need 👏🏾 sunscreen! Sis, yes you do! Melanin helps protect our skin from the sun but it's not vibranium y'all 🤣 Those dark spots you can't get rid of? Sun damage. Pesky fine lines? Sun damage. Uneven texture? Hyper-pigmentation? Signs of sun damage 😩 Wearing a sunscreen DAILY is a major key to ensuring your black really doesn't crack out here!! 🗝️ That's why I've been living & breathing in the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF 50. It's hydrating, fast absorbing & doesn't make me look like a ghost face killa 👻 This is a sunscreen I HIGHLY recommend to my chocolate girls who struggle finding an affordable sunscreen that's gentle, effective + brown skin friendly.
Neutrogena-Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50
Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 ($39), which is a purely mineral, 12% zinc oxide sunscreen (swipe for swatches 👉🏼) ☀️ KEY INGREDIENTS: Niacinamide (brightening), sunflower extract (antioxidant), iron oxides (blue light protection), zinc oxide (UVA/UVB protection). I like that there are iron oxides to protect against blue light, which exacerbate hyperpigmentation. The brand calls this formula enviroscreen. ☀️ EXPERIENCE: This is tinted peach, which colorescience claims to be universal. The texture is liquid, spreadable, and easy to massage into the skin. It doesn’t leave a white cast, but the “universal” peach makes me look cooler toned than I’d prefer, so I follow up use of this with a warm tinted moisturizer or bronzer. It leaves a dewy finish. ☀️VERDICT: I wish the tint worked better for my skin tone, but this is definitely the best mineral sunscreen I’ve tried. It’s hydrating and layerable, which is more than I can say for the majority of others. While still not as smooth as a product with chemical filters, if you’re looking for a dewy sunscreen with great protection, check colorescience out.
Best Sunscreen: Innisfree, 3W Clinic, Vaseline?
I have combination skin that tends to develop dark spots. I also suffer from dullness, so I always try my best to make my skin as bright as possible. Obviously, this also means using sunscreen whenever I’m outside. I’ve tried out three different sunscreens so far and here are my thoughts about them! The first one I want to talk about is Vaseline - Healthy White SPF 30 PA++ Serum which is technically a body serum but is also used as a sunscreen. It has SPF30 PA+++ and promises “flawless skin all over”. What I like the most about it is that it has a water-based formulation that is very lightweight and non-greasy. In fact, I don’t really feel anything when I have this on my face, which is a major plus. Lastly, I bought this for only $3 for 70ml, a really affordable price for a good product. The second one I tried is 3W CLINIC - Intensive UV Sunblock Cream It has SPF 50 PA++++, almost twice as much as Vaseline’s. It contains aloe extract and arbutin, two ingredients that can soothe and brighten tired skin. The formulation is also non-greasy, although if you compare it to Vaseline’s, it’s a lot heavier and you can definitely feel it on your skin. I also had to use powder more often with this on since it triggered my oily areas. This is also fairly cheap at $6 for 70ml. The third one, and the one I’m currently using now, is innisfree - Innisfree Intensive Long Lasting Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ This is actually one of three variants, the other two being Intensive Triple Care and Intensive Anti-Pollution. I chose this variant because I’m not a fan of re-application, if I have to reapply something I’d probably just forget it. Similar to 3W Clinic’s, it also has SPF 50+ PA++++. It’s not as lightweight as Vaseline’s but it’s definitely less sticky than 3W Clinic’s. It also doesn’t make me oily. Sadly, it’s the most expensive of the three, costing me roughly $13 for 50ml. If I were to rank these three, I’d say Innisfree goes first, followed by Vaseline, then 3W Clinic. That said, I still actually use all three! I use Vaseline on my body since it’s really cheap. Innisfree is the best but it’s quite expensive, so I only reserve it on days that I want to use makeup. If I’m just going to the beach or if I’m planning to play sports, I use 3W Clinic instead. What about you, what’s your favorite sunscreen? Have you tried any of these options? Let me know in the comments below!

why spf is important 🧴
sunscreen is an easily skipped step. it should be the last product you put on your face, close to the time of sun exposure. and honestly, i forget to put it on too. but here are a few reminders of why you should use it each day. 1) it protects your skin from the harsh uv rays 2) it lowers your skin cancer risk 3) it prevents early maturing of the skin (wrinkles) 4) helps maintain even skin tone 5) helps prevent discoloration and dark spots 6) helps maintain a smother skin tone 7) keeps your skin healthy overall i hope this helps! don’t forget your sunscreen!!!

AND they now offer this product in bioresin sugarcane plastic that is sourced from environmentally responsible farms meaning it is completely free of petroleum ingredients & has a dramatically lower carbon footprint. I have admired Mad Hippie’s products & mission for a couple of years now and look forward to trying out more from them in the future!
