My favourite tinted SPF
Sunscreen is the last and most important part of my AM routine. It protects skin from UV rays and prevents uneven skintone, dark spots, and aging from sun damage. I make sure to re-apply it every 2 hours even when it’s cloudy/rainy! That being said: This tinted moisturizer is my favourite SPF!! It's perfect for my oily-combo skin. The slight tint gives a sheer coverage and evens out my skin tone a little, and the matte finish keeps it from looking greasy. It’s easy to blend and absorb into skin due to its light texture. I still apply moisturizer beforehand cause I feel like it's not enough to moisturize my skin but overall I’d say this one is sooo worth the try!

This is by far my favorite mineral SPF I’ve ever tried. So I am incredibly sad that it’s already gone and I need it back in my life. PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer SPF30 this is a mineral SPF that provides a light tint to it. Which I prefer because I don’t like having a white cast on my mineral sunscreen‘s. I will say that the 10th of this is very light and almost gray tones so if you have a deeper skin this might not look the best on you. However if you fall in the lighter skin category I think that you would absolutely love this. It plays well underneath make up and also I’ve never had any issues with any other pilling up underneath it. It is on the pricier side of mineral sunscreen but I do think that it’s worth it because of how the consistency perform so well with other products and also because it’s very light weight. I also love that it’s not completely a matte finish because I do have dry skin and it still allows some of my natural glow to peek through. I definitely will be re-purchasing this product again soon and I would highly recommend it if you’re in the market for a new tinted mineral sunscreen.
RECOMMEND OR NOT?
I have combination-oily skin, and I've recently tried some of these products. fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence It's slightly greasy and causes breakouts. I do not recommend this! Kiehl's - Super Fluid Daily UV Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ It doesn't spread easily so I need to squeeze the tube a few times for enough of it to apply to my entire face. It also balls up as well as crusts. I do not recommend this. Now let's talk about the products I recommend. ESTĒE LAUDER - Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion I use it every night and I can feel my skin brightened with a translucent glow the next day. It offers great results, and I highly recommend it! 2)LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate When I used Estée Lauder Micro Essence alone, it couldn't be completely absorbed, but I no longer have this issue since I paired it with this serum. Those who find their essence difficult to absorb can give this serum a try.

Be careful if you have sensitive skin
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Facial Radiance Pads I have combo oily skin with lots of hyperpigmentation, and wanted to try these after a day of wearing a full face of makeup. I don’t normally use any sort of face wipes, but I got these in my boxycharm subscription and saw good reviews. I wiped my face after cleansing, and the pads felt pretty soft and the scent was nice. I moisturized and went to bed, but when I woke up my chin and forehead were red and peeling. My skin can lean sensitive so I would not recommend this for people who get reactions easily. I am still trying to rehydrate those areas of my face, but it’s no longer red at least.

Have you heard of Shero Science?!? You can take a quiz on their website to identify your “Skin IQ”: my skin type is oily, skin needs are L-abscorbic acid (vit C) and zinc oxide, and four SS products were recommended to help brighten my skin as well as to help with wrinkles, dark spots and dullness (E.H.F moisturizing cream, sheer mineral sunscreen, 2-in-1 pore purifying cleansing gel and power-C brightening serum). E.H.F moisturizing cream, sunscreen and 1% nightly retinol CE repair treatment. I used the mineral sunscreen on my face and really loved how sheer and lightweight it is (even though I’ve read some mixed reviews from some people about the texture). It also protected my skin from burning! The water cream includes vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and ferulic acid - I love the lightweight texture! I’ve used it a handful of times and so far so good, but I am saving it to use in combination with the retinol treatment (my skin has been really dry the past few months so I haven’t started using it yet). Sidenote: the products do contain silicones, but I didn’t have any issues with this irritating my skin from the sunscreen after using it daily for about 5 days!
Bioderma Photoderm NUDE Touch SPF 50+ Natural Tint ($24.55/40 ml) What It Is: a mineral sunscreen that ensures that all oily and combination skins are able to stay matte for up to 8 hours, thanks to its patents - the Fluidactiv patent ensures that the sebum production is reduced and that the quality of the sebum is improved; the Cellular Bioprotection patent reinforces the skin's defenses against solar radiation to reduce premature aging. For: Combination and Oily Skins. Skincare Concerns: sun exposure, uneven skin tone, anti-blemish and anti-shine. Texture/Consistency: ultra-light texture with powdery finish. My Experience: I have been using this sunscreen for over 3 months and it has quickly become one of my favorite sunscreens ever. For starters, I love that this sunscreen has 100% mineral filters. The texture feels incredible light. The silky application enables pigments and filters to be evenly spread across the skin for a perfectly protected, even complexion. With zero white-cast and no aroma whatsoever. The hydrating agents penetrate the superficial layers of the skin, making way for a powdery, matte finish. It truly feels and looks like second skin. It has a long wear (~8hrs) but always remember to reapply spf especially if you are outside or exposed to direct sunlight. It works extremely well with other skincare products and under makeup. It is very water resistant. And I love how well controls the shine on my oily skin and how beautiful it makes my skin look and feel. It has truly become my favorite sunscreen ever and I recommend it 1000% especially if you have oily skin. And it is incredible affordable! The only downsize is finding it in the States. I got mine from México but sometimes you can find it at Walmart. Cherie Rating: 5/5 BIODERMA - PhotodermNUDE Touch FPS 50+ Tono Natural

My Sunscreen Awards!!!-Part 2
SKII - Cellumination Day Surge UV This one is more like a lotion, very hydrating. But be cautious if your skin is sensitive, because it hurts. It is a little bit pricey. dermalogica - Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 This product is suitable for sensitive skin. It does not have any ..... It evens your skin tone. The texture is pretty heavy. You only need a little bit to spread out on your face. Murad - Oil-Control Mattifier SPF15 PA++ 18ml Perfect for oily skin. It does a good job in oil control and it is easy to spread out. The SPF is a little bit weak, but the perfect oil control overweights that small problem. dermalogica - Skinperfect Primer SPF 30 This is designed to address the redness on face. The green neutralizes with the redness, while purple addresses the dark spot. You can also apply it only around your nose and cheek. It is a gel like texture. It can make your pore invisible if you spread it out. But this is no good for sensitive skin. dermalogica - Sheer Tint SPF 20 This is a sunscreen for all types of skin. It is a cream like texture, easy to spread out. This is lighter than the product above.
Murad-Oil-Control Mattifier SPF15 PA++ 18ml
If you have combo or oily skin, like me, then texture is very important to you. And texture is the one of the biggest things I look for when shopping for day creams- something that moisturizes and actually makes your skin feel smooth and supple, and not feeling tacky or sticky throughout the day. Most importantly I want my moisturizer to keep my oils at bay throughout the day without risking looking too shiny before getting home. This day cream does exactly that for me. The formula is mattifying and cooling so its great for oily skin! I compare the texture to frosting- think of a matte fondant cake looking all smooth and NOT shiny. And while its a mattifying and not overly creamy it does an excellent job at making my skin feel moisturized- not tight like some drying anti-acne moisturizers do. With fermented black tea and blueberry extracts, it also helps combat first signs of aging- a definite plus for me. For better results, I use its serum underneath- which completes the entire moisturizing, hydrating, anti-aging experience for me 😇
