I ditched sunscreen all throughout my teenage years, thinking I would never burn or be impacted by the UV rays. Now, I know better: all people of all skin tones need to protect themselves. Black Girl Sunscreen is the answer with their elegant products that range from sprays and lotions to glosses.
On my way to the lake to go canoeing last weekend, I slathered on Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30. This cream is filled with nourishing oils like avocado, jojoba, and sunflower to seal in moisture and give a luxurious shine to the skin. The formula is easy to work with, blending in clear without the extra elbow grease from traditional sunscreens. I quickly apply before I head outside and notice how it lasts on my skin without feeling filmy or uncomfortable. Perfect for body or face, I use it for both. It lays beautifully under makeup without leaving me greasy or cakey, imparting more of a radiant dewy look that looks amazing in the sunshine.
For touch-ups throughout my days in the sun, I go in with the Make It Glow™ SPF 30, a spray sunscreen that is easy to carry in my bag and even easier to apply onto my skin in less than five minutes. The mist is ultra fine and easy to rub in. Made with glycerin, jojoba, and avocado, this little bottle leaves an effortless glow on my skin. No white cast or caking up – even through sweat and contact with water, which is fabulous, since it is ocean friendly!
Lastly, to protect my lips I pucker up with Make It Pop™ Lip Gloss with SPF, made with hyaluronic acid, tripeptides, and jojoba. This clear gloss protects against harmful UV rays while being vegan and cruelty free. The high shine makes re-application a must-do while shielding my lips in the process.
Black Girl Sunscreen has revolutionized the market of sun care for deeper skin tones, making me a believer. I always look forward to applying their products in the morning into the high noon, and you will too! Snag yours on their website and embrace your inner sun goddess.
