It’s definitely summer!
I’ve got a long-overdue sunscreen review today. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have talked a little bit about this during Sunscreen Week. Speaking of sunscreen week, every week should be sunscreen week. It’s so easy to forget to put it on and the consequences are just not worth it! Prevention is key!

Oil, oil, and more oil

How I use it
Last step before makeup; lately, I have been really good about measuring the right amount!
Side note: have you voted for Angela’s balls yet? They will solve the problem of measuring, plus provide sun protection, plus some moisture!
What I like about it
It’s simple and in a bright enough bottle that it catches your eye. I also like that it’s a cream that doesn’t leave much of white cast.
What could be better
It doesn’t keep me from getting oily, but does provide a bit of moisture; enough so that I only really need a lightweight moisturizer, such as this one. While the white cast isn’t nearly as bad as the white cast on a lot of sunscreens, it does leave a very slight white cast on my dark skin. If you are lighter, you probably won’t see it.
On a scale of 1-10, this sunscreen is a 6.
