Spring is finally here (florals are trending – groundbreaking). Oh, and SPF with CLEAN ingredients is also trending. FINALLY!! This is probably the most requested post on my IG. What better way to start festival season than with some healthy, non-toxic SPF suggestions. I personally try to keep my face and body protected from the sun due to anti-aging and health purposes. However, I’m trying my best to start using products with little to no harsh chemicals that will seep into my bloodstream and cause long-term health complications while doing so. That defeats the purpose! The main active ingredient in all these products is zinc-oxide (read more about SPF here).
SUNTEGRITY “5 In 1” Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen – SPF 30
I’m about to repurchase this. It gives the skin such a beautiful glowing finish. It’s a tinted SPF so it’s not a full coverage foundation in any way. However, you can definitely build on this and put powder or liquid foundation on top. It works to moisturize the skin while protecting it. The ingredients are so delicious and nourishing to the skin. It doesn’t feel tacky or leave a white cast. A little goes a long way so the bottle will last a while – it lasted me almost a whole year!
KYPRIS Pot of Shade Heliotropic – SPF 30
If you’re looking for something very light and quick absorbing, this is seriously the best non-toxic sunscreen I have tried yet. I have sensitive acne-prone skin, and this is great for all skin types. A little goes a very long way which makes the price totally worth it. It’s broad-spectrum (which is what we should be looking for in an SPF). The cherry on top is that it’s also a primer and helps to smooth imperfections while still keeping moisture in the skin. It looks amazing under makeup! I like to use their body SPF too because it doesn’t smell strong at all. I want my SPF to have a faint, good smell if it’s going all over my body!
SUPERGOOP! Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen – SPF 37
We usually tend to forget the neck, but we have a REAL problem when it comes to forgetting the eye area. It’s the most delicate and sensitive area on the face and should definitely be protected from the sun at all times. This one is a favorite because it leaves my eye area moisturized and doesn’t clog the pores under my eyes in the process. I find that most eye creams tend to do this, so when I find one that doesn’t, I hog it. It’s on the thicker side, but absorbs nicely and is fabulous under makeup.
FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen – SPF 15
I love the fact that this has a wide range of color options. It feels so smooth on the lips and doesn’t leave me chapped if I’m not constantly reapplying it. That’s important to me because it’s effective and it looks good. My personal favorite is the color Sugar Rosé Tinted. The formula is creamy and doesn’t slip off the lips. It gives a beautiful natural looking tint for an everyday look. Get those juicy lips y’all.
COLORESCIENCE Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield – SPF 50
I don’t know about you, but I always need a touch up when I’m wearing makeup all day. Especially in the Spring/Summer/festival seasons! The size and function is so insanely convenient and the formula is perfect. It doesn’t cake or accentuate texture which is important to me. If you need a touch up, what better way than to touch up with a powder infused with sunscreen. It’s a bit pricy and the color selection isn’t broad (it goes on almost translucent so don’t worry if it doesn’t match you completely – the purpose is a quick dust), but the nice thing is you can get a refill for way cheaper! I’m always on the go and this keeps my SPF game strong!
These are all products I have tried and loved. I wouldn’t recommend them otherwise! If you end up purchasing one, tag me on IG. I’d love to hear your experience with my favorite products!
