Say Bye to White Cast Mineral Sunscreen and Hello To Glowing Skin
Looking for the right sunscreen that does not have a white cast, you have come to the right place.
While dermatologists have started to swear by mineral based sunscreens the top concern for us deeper skin types was the dreadful white cast that always gave us a hard time. Mineral sunscreens are packed with zinc , reef safe and soft on the skin and quite beneficial to skincare.
Luckily for us science turned the tides and we now get to enjoy the benefits of mineral sunscreens.
Here is a curated list of both Mineral sunscreens and others that shun the white cast :
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-In Milk Body & Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100

High in SPF this sunscreen is known for its melt in qualities. Easily blendable with minimal effort and this sunscreen never feels greasy on the skin.
Re’equil Oxybenzone Free Sunscreen SPF50 for acne Prone Skin
Buy Now – https://amzn.to/3tQwejk
Made with the cooling Aloe Vera this sunscreen is soft on the skin. With a good SPF value and being budget friendly it is a good option. However, I must say that this takes a little effort to blend in to get the product into the skin without a white cast.
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion Wetforce SPF 50+
This foundation was referred to me by a cousin, and I will not lie, she was absolutely right ! This SPF thrives in heat and is said to use the WetForce technology.
Invisible Physical Defense Sunscreen SPF 30
Green-tea-infused this sunscreen is true to its name. Almost invisible with the power of SPF30 this is the perfect sunscreen for those wanting to get a sheer makeup look that is natural flawless and most importantly well protected.
Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 :
This tinted sunscreen is the right match for all those who love tinted BB cream foundations. It is lightweight, tinted and antioxidant packed. Not only does this sunscreen do its job right it also deals with dark spots, dullness, uneven texture, fine lines and wrinkles.
Sun Bum Mineral Sunscreen Face Tint SPF 30 :
Also famously known as the primer sunscreen, this little tub is packed with sunscreen, tint and a primer. Perfect for protecting your skin and it sits smoothly below makeup. This sunscreen is also quite budget friendly and is non-comedogenic.
While there are many more mineral non chalky sunscreens in the market, the ones I just listed are perfect for our deeper skin tones and few of them are even mineral based, a complete win- win for me.
And before the applause, let me urge you to get on the sunscreen train my beautiful people!
