“i am a dry skin, sensitive skin girly and many sunscreens have caused my face to react or have messed with my skin barrier, but this one feels like a nice moisturizer with spf. i’ve recommended to friends with oilier skin or darker skin tones and they have preferred other spfs because of the moisture and white cast, so just tread lightly if those are your concerns”

for optimal sun protection, apply 15 minutes before sun exposure. apply generously and evenly as the last step in your skincare routine and before makeup. reapply at least every 2 hours. use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating.

Favorite spf

I LOVE this spf. It doesn’t feel greasy and doesn’t leave a strange grey film or anything like that and I love knowing that it is made with quality ingredients.

Light and refreshing

I use this daily and I love it. Light, refreshing. It does feel a little weird on super hot days and it makes me feel a bit more dewy but I wouldn’t change it.

Love love

I absolutely love this spf!! My skin even looks and feels better when I use it. My only issue is it doesn’t play nice with the texture smoothing lotion around my temples, but it’s a minor issue for a sunscreen that works well, nourishes my skin, and doesn’t irritate.

Miracle SPF

I struggled for a long time trying to find the right SPF for my face and after years of searching this was the one! I love the texture and I apply my makeup over it with no issues. It does at first have a little wash out but that goes away after 15 mins or so.

Favorite mineral sunscreen yet!

I've been SEARCHING for a mineral sunscreen that doesn't feel so thick on my skin and doesn't pill. This one is my favorite so far (I've tried at least five different brands at this point).

I'm allergic to chemical sunscreen, so this is literally a skin/lifesaver!

Frequently asked questions

physical sunscreens, also called mineral sunscreens, protect skin by absorbing and converting, as well as scattering/reflecting the UV rays. chemical sunscreens protect skin by absorbing UV rays and converting them into heat energy. our daily SPF is a physical sunscreen that uses nanoparticle-free zinc oxide as its sunscreen filter. 

SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and it measures a sunscreen’s ability to protect against UVB rays. the SPF number tells you how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to darken your skin if you applied the sunscreen (as directed) compared with the amount of time without sunscreen. A broad spectrum sunscreen means it protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. PA is a sunscreen rating system often used in Asia and measures the level of protection against UVA rays. Our daily SPF is a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF rating of 32.

unfortunately “reef safe” and “coral safe” are unregulated terms and research supports that both mineral and chemical sunscreen filters have some degree of effect on the ocean. we also encourage customers to utilize other sun protective measures to minimize impact on the ocean, such as wearing hats and UV protective clothing (these are the easiest way to avoid environmental impact)!

we definitely still recommend applying a moisturizer before daily spf, because the product isn't formulated to replace a moisturizer in your routine.

both the Silk SPF and Daily SPF were formulated to be gentle and clinically tested and dermatologist-reviewed to ensure they’re non-irritating. however, mineral SPFs are typically preferred by dermatologists for use on children, so we would recommend our Daily SPF. we still always recommend talking to your pediatrician and doing a patch test to ensure compatibility.
