sunscreens that slay ✨

I'm always looking for sunscreens that don't pill, clog pores, irritate my skin (very sensitive around the eyes) or leave a whitecast. They shouldn't dry out my skin or leave it oily at the end of the day. It can be challenging to find sunscreens that meet all the criteria. Here are my favourites 😊

Vegan Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Underrated. It's everything a sunscreen should be. The finish is neutral/only slightly dewy

“I received this product for free from Picky and Nacific in exchange for my honest review.” ✨Nacific Glow and Shine 1+1 Set✨ Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++ is a vegan sun essence that protects and moisturizes your face without leaving any white cast. It smells like a mix of herbs and lemons, it’s not strong and rather pleasant. I was worried that my sensitive skin might react to this but I had no issues at all. It has a lightweight texture that offers a soothing effect, especially for sensitive skin. It absorbs quickly with a slight dewy finish. No pilling, no stinging, it doesn’t feel sticky or oily at the end of the day. There’s only two other sunscreens I really liked that ticked all my boxes for a perfect sunscreen (absorbs fast, no pilling, no stinging, no white cast, no sticky/oiliness, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and doesn’t break me out) but this one has. I really enjoyed using it and I will definitely have a tube at home at all times. It’s available on different websites (e.g YesStyle, Littlewonderland & Stylevana) for about $17/16€

I was a bit sceptical after using this sunscreen for the first time. I usually opt for a matte finish sunscreen and this one leaves a healthy glow/shine but I have come to really like it. I don't wear makeup so I don't know how that would feel like while using this sunscreen but I can say that for me : It doesn't leave a white cast or feel sticky. It doesn't pill or irritate my skin. It leaves my skin with a shine and feels moisturising. It doesn't break me out and feels lightweight. I can wholeheartedly recommend it. Don't forget to double cleanse 🙂

This sunscreen is so incredibly underrated. It's a sweat and waterproof chemical sunscreen. It's lightweight, doesn't feel greasy, heavy or sticky. It absorbs quickly and doesn't pill or irritate my skin and didn't sting my eyes. It contains alcohol, which sometimes can be an issue with my sensitive skin but I didn't notice anything other than the faint smell of it. There's no whitecast and it has a natural finish. I will repurchase to try out during hot and humid summer days. But as of now this has been such a great sunscreen. Bonus is the cute Disney packaging ☺️

Easily one of my top 3 sunscreens. It's a milky sunscreen, that leaves no whitecast, no pilling and it doesn't sting the eyes at all. It faintly smells of alcohol but that hasn't been an issue at all. It has the smoothest satin finish I've ever experienced with any sunscreen. Even hours later my face will feel so soft and smooth, never greasy, sticky or oily at all. The finish just feels so silky and nice. I wish it came in a bigger size. I cannot recommend this enough. It's so underrated.
