With the recent talk of good sunscreen recommendations for this coming summer, I really wanted to post all over Twitter and Instagram that I have found thee best sunscreen by far, but I had to refrain myself for the sake of this post. I recently had the opportunity to try out this magnificent sunscreen and I am super happy that I had the chance to. I’ve been struggling to find a sunscreen that is not too thick, doesn’t leave a white cast, and is easy to work with on the skin and I have definitely found it in this one.
I, along with my many of my fellow green beauty bloggers have been on the hunt for something just like this sunscreen that I am about to wax poetic about, and I am super excited to have found one that doesn’t make me appear ghostly or ashy for once! And this is a cause to celebrate ladies and gents.
John Masters Organics SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreenhas a white very creamy consistency which makes for super easy application to the skin. The bottle states that you can wear this on top of a moisturizer or without one, which I found true because the consistency is much like a thin lotion. The thing that pretty much blew me away about this sunscreen though, is how moisturizing it is because there have definitely been days before I went out for a run that I decided to use this alone since you really don’t need a moisturizer in addition to this. Say what?? I know. I’ve never tried a sunscreen that was able to do this especially with the dry skin that I have until now.
This sunscreen has pretty much become an all-in-one product for me where I simply just apply it and go. And the highlight of this sunscreen is that it does not leave a white cast, I repeat, it does not leave a white cast!! Initially it goes on white but this sunscreen is so creamy and easy to work with that it takes not much effort at all to work it into your skin, which means no white cast! Ever! I also noticed that what separates this sunscreen from others is the fact that it is a lot like lotion so it does not absorb or stick to the skin too quickly which gives you time to work it into the skin and allow it to be absorbed entirely.
This can be used on both the face and body but I definitely see myself going through this pretty quickly since I love to pile on the sunscreen when I go for a run so the only downside would be the amount of product compared to the actual price if I do end up continuing to use this all over. This sunscreen is a little on the pricey side but at this point I am just very happy to have found a natural sunscreen that works for me and I will purchase this in the meantime. This is the perrrrfect sunscreen for everyday use and it even doubles as a moisturizer so it’s a lot like a moisturizer that provides sun protection too, which is just fab.
