SKIN SERIES | Sunscreen Favorites 2018
When I made the switch to more natural beauty products, SPF and shampoo were the products I found hardest to replace. I have since found my holy grail shampoo and more recently, a TON of great SPF options. I'm in the "wear your SPF 365 days a year, rain or shine" camp so finding a lightweight, non-pore clogging product that I actually enjoyed putting on everyday was pretty non-negotiable. It also couldn't pill. I hate when products do that.
If you're curious about last year's picks (and a great podcast episode discussing a healthy relationship with the sun), head here.
Now, let's talk about my latest discoveries:
Suntegrity 5-in-1 Sunscreen SPF 30 - If I were to give a sunscreen holy grail status, it would probably belong to Suntegrity. I absolutely adore this sunscreen and am a little annoyed with myself that it took me so long to try it. The tint is wonderful (no white cast) and I dig the moderate coverage. There is nothing wrong with a sheer sunscreen, but sometimes you need a little more oomph and this has just enough to blur minor imperfections. The best part of this sunscreen is the super silky texture that layers beautifully over my two favorite daytime serums (here and here).
Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Cream - This is a great option for those that want sheer coverage and prefer the lightweight texture of a moisturizer. And the ingredient deck just can't be beat. Think chamomile, nettle, dandelion, and marshmallow root. It's a feast for the skin! Another perk? This sunscreen smells amazing! (Not too surprising considering Josh's Hydrating Accelerator may be one of the best things you will ever smell.)
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer SPF 30 - I've tried both the tinted and the sheer options available and I think I prefer the sheer. This is the most sunscreen-y of all the sunscreens I'm recommending here and is a great final step over your oil or moisturizer. Essentially, it's perfect for those that want an antioxidant-rich sunscreen without a ton of extra moisture. Umbra Sheer would make a great beach companion.
Honua Malu Protecting Day Cream SPF 30 - This is my newest discovery and I'm really loving it so far. It offers fantastic matte, sheer coverage making it a great option for oilier skin. I also really love this brand's ethos, particularly their devotion to the environment. In fact, Honua is this month's Beauty Heroes Beauty Discovery, which not only includes this great sunscreen and a juicy mask, but also a glass straw! My morning smoothies just got a whole lot more sustainable.
