Top 3 Mineral Sunscreens


Just because the summer is coming to an end, does not mean you should ditch your SPF. Up to 80% of the sun's UV rays can penetrate through clouds and cause skin damage. What does sun-damage look like on the skin? It can range from hyperpigmentation, fine lines to accelerated aging, pre-cancerous skin growth and skin cancer itself. 

We get it, sunscreen is a pain to wear. It's hard finding one that actually feels and looks good on the skin while layering well under make-up.... especially when it's mineral based. 

We all love concept of mineral sunscreens although it's hard to find those that don't leave you with a thick greasy coating on your face. We're here to tell you that you can wear a sunscreen that's reef safe, ingredient friendly all while looking good on your skin. Here are our top 3 favourite sunscreens to keep you protected and looking fabulous. Say goodbye to that white-cast babes.
