If You Hate Heavy Facial SPF, These Formulas Don't Know How
5 min read
If you're like me, you know what it's like to abhor everything about facial SPF . Not only does it feel uncomfortable, sticky, and often greasy on the skin, but it also, more often than not, leaves a ghostly white cast and makes it impossible to oily your complexion. And don’t get me wrong I know that facial SPF formulas come in a long way, but let’s face it. We're not quite there yet, are we?
And everyone seems to be struggling with facial SPFs for a variety of reasons. Some find that the ingredients irritate their dry and sensitive skin while others struggle with the way the oily formulas sit on their oily skin. Personally, I’m in the last category. I wanted a glow but I found that many SPFs make my pores triple the size, and applying any type of makeup on top in an attempt to correct the situation is out of the question. (Unless I really want to chase it in my face all day.)
No, SPF on the face is not the one, but we have to wear it And I’ve definitely fixed my favorite formulas that I know aren’t wild. However, this year there was a new type of facial SPF on the scene and I was all was on. For days like this when applying a full face makeup seems incompatible but I still want to feel like myself, I opt for tinted SPFs.
Before this year, I had to admit that the idea of pore -clogging, breakout -sending tinted SPF would send it down my spine, but the new formulas were different. Sitting closer to the spectrum towards high-protection skincare as opposed to makeup, they keep the skin looking and feeling just like you and sometimes offer a bit more of a bronzed glow. As you read? Keep scrolling for the tinted SPF formulas I wear every day.
