The most anticipated and new product from Sukin are these SPF30 sheer touch facial sunscreens. We all know by now how important it is to slip, slip, slap on sunscreen on the daily to protect our skin from UVA + UVB rays as yo prevent our skin from ageing.

SPF30 Sheer Touch Facial Sunscreen 60ml $24.95*

Sukin’s SPF30 sheer touch facial sunscreen is physical/mineral sunscreen described as a non greasy formula that won’t leave a white cast, feels light weight and moisturising on the skin sunscreen. Its key ingredients are: Rosehip oil, green tea and cucumber to help nourish skin. It has been formulated without chemical absorbents like oxybenzone and octinoxate that may cause harm to coral reefs and sea life. Sukin uses active natural ingredients like zinc oxide that provides UVA + UVB broad spectrum protection. All ingredients have been naturally derived, are cruelty-free and 100% vegan. These sunscreens are suitable for all skin types.

All 3 sheer touch facial sunscreens have a natural (summer) mild scent that fades after application to skin. Tip: I prefer to apply a pea size to my fingers first before massaging to skin thoroughly to avoid leaving a white cast, paying particular attention to the creases on my face such as around the eye area and smile lines. I also found this method to allow the sunscreen to absorb quickly without being oily or greasy or sticky by applying in small doses at a time. I found that after a few minutes my skin feels matte but still I am able to move my face and for the rest of the day my skin doesn’t break out and instead feels nourished all day. I reapply after a few hours if I plan to be exposed in the sunlight longer than 30 minutes at a time so my skin continues to be protected from the harsh sun.

The tinted sheer touch facial sunscreens have been designed for daily use, as it contains a hint of colour that blends in to help even out with your natural skin tone but better. While it doesn’t conceal blemishes, this is perfect for those looking to wear light and natural makeup but still keeping skin protected from the sun. This can be a great base pre-makeup but is lovely to wear alone, which is my preferred choice.

As this only contains SPF30, I use this when I don’t have much sun exposure. I prefer to use a sunscreen with a higher SPF count when I spend more time outdoors, such as for my morning walks or just being outside. Apart from the low SPF, I do think this is one of the better sunscreens I’ve tried that haven’t broken my skin, leave a greasy skin, sticky or leaves an awful scent.

If you’re in the market to try a natural physical/mineral sunscreen, this is a great alternative and one that will become a staple in your morning skincare routines. Sukin sheer touch facial sunscreens are available exclusively in-store at Chemist Warehouse and online via:
