OUR FAVOURITE CONSCIOUS SUNBLOCKS
We are BIG on preventative measures when it comes to our skin. SPF is not just for holidays, it's an all-day everyday essential step in your skincare routine. Protecting your skin from the suns harmful rays all year round prolongs ageing, reduces the risk of skin cancer and keeps your skin looking lovely and even.
And whilst we certainly won’t stop plastering on the sunblock, we hear a lot of excuses as to why some just can't seem to make it a daily habit.
From the white, greasy texture, breakouts, the damage that conventional sunblock can have on our oceans to the fear of it blocking potential vitamin D synthesis, we’ve heard it all.
Luckily for you, we’ve tried and tested a few conscious SPF brands and picked out the very best. These beauties won’t leave your skin feeling sticky or greasy and don’t contain crappy chemicals that could further damage the environment.
DRUNK ELEPHANT UMBRA SHEER PHYSICAL DAILY DEFENCE | SPF 30
Without a doubt, this skincare staple from Drunk Elephant is top of our list when it comes to both protecting and treating our skin. It doesn’t break us out or have a white, chalky appearance to it and it sits really well under makeup. We also can vouch for the tinted version which is a great option if you’re forgoing makeup and keeping things light.
REN CLEAN SCREEN MINERAL | SPF 30
UVA, UVB and blue light protective, Ren’s SPF is formulated for even the most sensitive of skin types. It's also a little kinder on the planet as even the bottle is made from recycled plastic and all the ingredients are naturally derived and vegan. The sunny yellow packaging makes us feel like we’re slathering on sunscreen for a day by the pool instead of our morning commute.
GREEN PEOPLE SCENT FREE FACIAL SUN CREAM | SPF 30
A firm favourite of conscious skincare junkies. Green People’s SPF, as with all their products, is a sensitive skin must-have. We cannot stress enough just how important it is to avoid fragrance and scent if you have acne-prone or have sensitive skin and Green People’s SPF walks the talk.
COOLA MINERAL CUCUMBER FACE | SPF 30
We’re huge fans of Coola’s products. They have a range of different types of SPF, including primers and facial mists, as well as a solid selection of standard sunscreens. They are all non-toxic and utilise the very best, cleanest ingredients that are nourishing for your skin and planet too. Plus we’re suckers for branding and Coola really delivers on making us feel like we’re on a tropical island.
SUPERGOOP UNSEEN SUNSCREEN | SPF 30
Another brand of sunscreens with multiple different product types, you just know that Supergoop are real SPF experts. Their newest product promises to sit unseen under makeup and on its own. It’s super hydrating yet non-greasy. We also love that you can opt to buy a smaller, travel size to try before committing to a full-size version so that you can see how your skin reacts.
