I’m super excited to finally write my review about Black Girl Sunscreen! I’ve actually been using the sunscreen for several months. I remember learning about the product on social media, and was a tad bit skeptical at first. However, I immediately fell in love with the texture and that it does NOT leave a white cast on my skin. How many black women can relate to the awful, ashy look and feel of some sunscreens? Well, let me tell you—this sunscreen will leave you glowing!
The product is very lightweight and not extremely oily. I also feel that a little goes a long way. In my opinion, when it comes to sunscreen, the more the merrier. However, Black Girl Sunscreen easily gets the job done without needing a ton of product. You don’t have to worry about a white, residue because the product easily absorbs into the skin. As we enter the summer, I will more than likely use this in place of my daily moisturizer.
One thing that I also loved about this sunscreen was the ingredients. There are some amazing natural ingredients including; jojoba, cacao, carrot juice and carrot oil. There are no fragrances or harmful parabens in Black Girl Sunscreen as well. Also, it does not include oxybenzone and octinoxate. These two ingredients are used in many popular sunscreens, however, some researchers believe they can cause more harm than good over time.
Is it worth it?
YES! You need this in your life asap. Adding this to your skincare routine will help protect against hyperpigmentation and skin cancer, while helping you achieve a more even skin tone. I’m so glad this company exist because they are educating people of color on why we need sun protection. My only thought is that I hope a higher SPF will be available in the near future.
