I wear sunscreen every day, and whenever I’m headed to a tropical place or a wintery destination it’s always at the top of my packing list. After years of trying all kinds of face sunscreens — from sticks that felt heavy to mists that left a sticky residue — I’ve gotten more particular about my selection. These days, I’ve been focusing on mineral sunscreens, since they’re gentler on my skin, which is why I decided to give this highly rated Mineral Sunscreen from Ourself a try. When I was testing it out, I wanted to dedicate the time to get a thorough experience, so I wore it every day for the past month (and spoiler alert: liked it so much I will continue to do so). 

From the luxury skincare brand Ourself, which puts science and ingredients at its forefront, this sunscreen is unlike any other I’ve used in the past. And as part of the brand’s skincare line, this SPF 50 product not only shields my skin from pollutants, blue light damage, and UVA and UVB rays, but also nourishes it with every application.

What’s the secret? There are several high quality ingredients packed into this lightweight sunscreen. While zinc oxide works to protect my skin from harmful rays and environmental stressors, the brand’s science-backed peptide, Intide, targets skin needs like firming, smoothing, and anti-aging. After continuous use, I found my skin tone looks more even and feels bouncy thanks to key ingredients like niacinamide that helps reduce the look of fine lines, and Vitamin E, an antioxidant that aids in skin cell turnover

Most of all, I was surprised at how easily this mineral sunscreen absorbed into my skin. Rather than having to really work this product into my face as I’ve had to do with past mineral sunscreens, this one melts right in without leaving a white cast. Even upon reapplication, my skin doesn’t feel like it has any product buildup. Plus, a little of this goes a long way (I typically use one to two pumps), which is always good when you’re investing in a luxury product. While I usually opt to wear this sunscreen alone, I’ve also worn it under makeup without any creasing. 

And I found that this sunscreen is perfect for travel too: since it’s 1-fluid ounce, I can pop it right into my cosmetic bag and carry-on. Plus, it’s also reef-friendly — a major bonus for travelers who are hitting the beach and want to leave a minimal trace on the environment.

But I’m not the only one who’s loving the product. One shopper who reported using this sunscreen daily to blend “effortlessly” with their moisturizer also appreciates it for not leaving any residue on their hands. Another user who has rosacea described that their skin feels “softer” and “healthier” with consistent application of this mineral sunscreen. A third person called it their “holy grail sunscreen” for its satin finish sans skin irritation on their sensitive skin.  

Take it from me — this is one luxurious skincare product that’s worth the money, and you’re going to want to use all the time. Head to Ourself and add this protecting and nourishing Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 to your daily skincare routine.
