A 100-percent natural, chemical-free, moisturizing sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. This residue-free, smooth-gliding, non-comedogenic formula uses a new generation of mineral sunscreens for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Infused with youth-promoting antioxidants, botanicals, and amino acids, this ultra-sheer formula delivers daily protection and nourishment. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide deliver high-level UV filters to keep fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots at bay.
Lavanila’s The Healthy Sun Screen SPF 40 Face Cream is one of several suncare products the company offers. It’s marketed as being residue-free and as containing skin-benefiting ingredients. Keep reading for my thoughts and for more photos.
This sunscreen comes in an opaque squeeze tube, which helps keep the product sanitary and protected from sun exposure (which degrades the active ingredients inside). The cap flips open and snaps closed. This packaging makes it easy to control how much product you dispense.
This sunscreen’s formula doesn’t have that classic sunscreen smell–it doesn’t really smell like anything and, importantly, doesn’t contain any fragrance in the ingredients. The formula is creamy without being overly thick. This sunscreen doesn’t leave an oily or greasy finish either. It will leave a very slight white cast on the skin, which is easily covered up by makeup. And while the finish isn’t completely matte, it doesn’t exacerbate oiliness or become more shiny throughout the day.
Most importantly, this sunscreen provides full-spectrum sun protection, guarding the skin against both UVA and UVB rays with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. As an added bonus, this sunscreen has skin-beneficial ingredients like Vitamin B, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid (to hydrate the skin).
Overall, this is a great sunscreen for the face because it effectively protects your skin against both aging and burning while maintaining a pleasant-to-wear formula.
