I wear sunblock every single day. Before I went green, I detested wearing it as that thick, oily “my skin can’t breathe” heaviness of SPF was unbearable. Now however, green beauty SPFs are light and breathable, smell good, are good for the skin and feel like daily moisturizers. My favorites are below in no particular order!
DeVita’s Solar Protection I’ve been also using this SPF for years – for face and body (there’s two separate ones). Again, this is so light, it feels like you’re just putting a lotion on your body (and face). It’s also great if you’re looking for something more affordable (and with this link, it’s on sale now, too). They come in great little tubes, so I end up throwing the face and body in my bag over the Summer and reapply as needed. Highly recommended! Shop here.
Josh Rosebrook’s Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30 I’ve been using this organic sunscreen for the past few years and have to say it’s a crowd favorite for us bloggers. Why? First off, it feels like a light lotion, has no white cast and the ingredients will protect, repair and moisturize the skin. This is also matte and is good for oily/acne-prone skin, too. You need very little and it’s worth the investment. Plus, it has a faint scent of vanilla that everyone goes nuts for, too! Shop here.
Kypris’ Heliotropic Pot of Shade SPF 30 I’m pretty much in love with gluten-free Heliotropic. Why? Because I love that it comes in a pot and that I can just take a bit out and apply it like a light cream all over my face. I love that it is moisturizing and doesn’t dry out my skin or leave a white cast. This does not contain any essential oils so it’s great for those who suffer from irritation. I also love the way it leaves my skin looking, too: a healthy, pretty dewy finish (not shiny, though). Shop here.
Kari Gran’s Three Sixty Five This SPF 28 is to be worn 365 days a year and I couldn’t agree more. Silky and moisturizing, this sunblock has the feel of a velvety serum/day cream. You need very little so as not to get a white cast. This SPF can also be blended with mineral foundation for a liquid foundation. It really feels absolutely wonderful on the skin and especially for drier types. This sunblock protects from both UVA and UVB rays that burn the skin, so it truly is a broad spectrum SPF. Shop here.
