Finding an everyday SPF can be more difficult then you would expect. Most on the market are catered to beach holidays and only a few can survive the requirements of a day-to-day wearer. If you haven’t read my Everything You Need To Know About Sunscreen post, go now! I explain in more detail some of the key ingredients you don’t want in your SPF.
All the SPF’s mentioned below are reef-safe mineral formulations meaning that they are formulated with some form of non-nano zinc oxide as the main active ingredient.
But not all formulations are the same, below you can find detailed information about each sunscreen that I’ve selected. So you can make a better-informed purchase.
Pai Hello Sunshine Sensitive Sunscreen SPF 30: Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Paraben-free, Phthalates-free, non-greasy formula for easy makeup application, Blue-light & Infra-Red protection. *if you use this link you get 12£ on your first purchase over 30£ plus 2 free samples.
Rocky Mountain Soap Company Vanilla Coconut Natural Sunscreen SPF 30: Cruelty-free, Paraben-free, non-whitening and dries down semi-matte.
REN Clean Skincare Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30: Vegan, Blue Light Protection, matt finish.
Supergoop Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45: Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Paraben-free and sweat-resistant. Sweat-resistant formulas are more longlasting which makes them great for people that have active lifestyles. I’ve been looking for a powder SPF for a while now and Supergoop’s is the only one so far that made my shopping list. Most SPF’s need reapplying after 2 hours but that’s just unthinkable when I’m at work. However, a powder SPF that I can easily reapply on top of my makeup can easily become a game-changer.
Derma E Sun Defense Mineral Oil-Free Sunscreen SPF 30 Body: Fragrance-free, Paraben-free, Cruelty-free and no white marks.
The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 15 with Antioxidants: Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Gluten-Free, matt finish.
Avene Tinted Mineral Fluid SPF50+: Water-resistant, no white marks, matt finish.
Zincscreen 100% Mineral Lotion: Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Paraben-free, Blue Light Protection and skin-brightening pink tint.
