Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion - Medium to Tan

My very favorite sunscreen, a tinted mineral sunscreen. Absolutely love this one! Especially in the summer since it’s waterproof.

I first purchased this product in the original tinted shade, before the company completely switched over to making it in 3 different tinted shades. The original tint is now the fair/light shade. I was running low on the original I had and the fair/light was not in stock anywhere to purchase, so I decided to try the medium/tan shade since it is summer and my skin is darker in the summer. It looks a lot darker coming out of the tube so I was worried (see my comparison photo), but it works perfectly with my more tanned skin! I will definitely be purchasing the medium/tan in the summer time and the fair/light the rest of the year from here on out. I love the different shade options, kudos to Australian Gold for that because I have never seen another tinted sunscreen with shade options before! I have mild rosacea so sunscreen is incredibly important for my skin in order to avoid flare ups. SPF 30 isn’t enough protection and chemical sunscreens aren’t right for my skin, so in my search for the perfect sunscreen I came across this one. And this is THE ONE. My most favorite sunscreen EVER. It provides great protection and really keeps my rosacea calm. Fragrance free! No weird sunscreen smell. It goes on very smoothly, it’s very easy to rub into your skin evenly. I do moisturize before applying, which I would definitely recommend since it is a mineral sunscreen. Otherwise you may not have the same easy experience when applying. Dries down matte with a really nice finish and never feels greasy, sticky, or heavy on my skin. I don’t wear makeup so I love that it’s tinted and helps cover the redness in my skin. It does not clog pores and cause breakouts as long as you are double cleansing. Comes right off with an oil or balm cleanser. I also find that it reapplies very nicely, which is not always true for mineral sunscreens. I don’t think I will ever find another sunscreen that I love as much as this one!

It’s been a long time since I have found a chemical sunscreen that I like, but I’ve been testing out the new Pyunkang Yul Calming Sun Cream and it’s a winner! This is a chemical sunscreen formulated with niacinamide, cica, allantoin, honeysuckle, tea tree, hyaluronic acids, and ceramides. All those ingredients are amazing for all skin types, but are especially great for sensitive skin types. I found it very calming. It is also very moisturizing and leaves skin with a dewy but not greasy finish once it settles into skin fully. I actually found it so moisturizing that I prefer to wear it without an added moisturizer underneath. It layers well with other skincare and makeup products. Usually I have trouble with chemical sunscreens stinging my eyes, but I experienced no eye sting whatsoever with this one. Also no white cast (at least not on my light/medium skin), and no fragrance. I received this product free from Pyunkang Yul with no obligation to review it or post about it. I am always 100% honest in all of my product reviews.

This sunscreen is very elegant, I see why so many people love it! It’s thin and light, absorbs very quickly with hardly any rubbing into skin, and leaves a nice natural finish right away. No white cast at all on my light medium skin tone and no eye sting. It is moisturizing, but not oily. I don’t have to use an additional moisturizer with this one, which is always nice when you can skip a step in the morning. Also has no scent, which I really appreciate! Thank you to StyleKorean for sending me the Sunny Bundle to try and review! This bundle included 3 sunscreens and 3 sun sticks.

If you are a fan of tinted sunscreens, then you need to try this one! It is a mineral sunscreen that doesn’t feel like a mineral sunscreen. Its light, applies very well, absorbs quickly, and leaves skin with a dewy tint and no white cast. Does not feel oily or heavy at all. Caused no irritation or eye sting for me. Even though it’s only SPF 30 and I really prefer SPF 50, I felt like this one protected really well. It’s also really easy to reapply and doesn’t feel heavy even after reapplying. It does have a scent that I couldn’t quite place, maybe herbally? But the scent did not bother me at all and I didn’t find it overwhelming, it does not linger once the product is applied to your face. Wears well alone or with makeup.

I received this product for free from Picky and Numbuzin in exchange for my honest review. Really enjoying this sunscreen! It’s a very light and watery chemical sunscreen that absorbs quickly and leaves a nice natural finish behind. Does not get oily throughout the day at all. Wears really well under makeup and does not cause it to break down, actually acts as a nice primer for makeup. No fragrance, no eye sting, no irritation. It also has a bit of green tint to it, which I always like for helping to reduce the appearance of redness on my face. I find this great for sensitive skin as it has great soothing ingredients such as licorice root, cica, and heartleaf. It also contains other plant extracts, as well as glycerin and several forms of hyaluronic acid. So I also find it decently moisturizing for the day time and usually do not layer an additional moisturizer underneath it. A great sunscreen overall. This would absolutely be a repurchase for me in the future. Looking forward to trying more from Numbuzin!

This sunscreen is a fairly new release from P. Calm and it’s a beautiful sunscreen. I think a lot of people are going to love the is one! It’s very gentle, no irritation and no eye sting. It’s light and creamy and easy to apply. It absorbs fast, leaving a natural slightly glowy finish. No white cast and not oily at all. It’s pretty moisturizing for dry skin (although I do still personally use a light moisturizer under it), but also would be light enough for oily skin to wear without moisturizer. Contains some great ingredients like niacinamide, aloe, glutathione, ferments, ceramides, and allantoin. I think this one would suit all skin types and tones!

This sunscreen is a little bit of a thicker formula, but rubs into skin quickly and easily and absorbs very nicely. It leaves a natural finish right away. No scent that I could tell, no white cast on my light medium skin tone, and no eye sting. It’s very moisturizing and I don’t need to use an additional moisturizer under it, but it does not feel heavy on skin. Wears well under makeup too! Thank you to StyleKorean and Jumiso for sending me the Awe-sun Box to try and review! This box contained Jumiso’s 2 new sunscreens and a fun surprise when you opened the box.
