Normally I don’t like to apply sunscreen to my face. It has a strong smell, it doesn’t always apply evenly, and it usually feels thick and sticky on my skin. That means I usually just use foundation with built-in UV protection to protect my face from too much sun. But sometimes foundation can feel heavy and unnatural on my face, too. Especially during the summer, when I want my skin to just feel fresh and clean.
Over the past few months, I’ve discovered the benefits of the OZ Naturals brand skin products – specifically their vitamin C serum and hyaluronic acid serum. When I had the chance to receive a complimentary sample of their tinted sunscreen via BrandBacker, I was excited to try a new sunscreen on my face since I know that OZ Naturals makes quality products.
OZ Naturals is a leader in natural skincare, with products that are cruelty free, as well as free of parabens, sulfate, mineral oil, lanolin and gluten. The description sounded great for the OZ Naturals SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Moisturizer, so I was eager to try it.
This sunscreen is formulated to provide broad spectrum protection and shield skin against harmful damage caused from both UVA and UVB rays, and it’s safe for all skin types. It’s designed to be applied daily on the face and body, and can be worn alone as a foundation, or under makeup. It comes in a medium tint that is designed to blend well with most skin shades.
To me, the best part is that this product is formulated as a moisturizer as a well as a sunscreen. It’s designed to nourish the skin while also protecting skin from the aging effects of cumulative daily UV exposure.
My experience with OZ Naturals SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Moisturizer
The OZ Naturals SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Moisturizer honestly is the first sunscreen that has ever felt good when I applied it to my face. It felt so light and natural on my skin without seeming oily or sticky at all.
This sunscreen smooths on easily and evenly. With other sunscreens, I usually find that they’re thick and cakey on my skin, but this product had a great texture that made my skin feel great. When it was time to wash it off, it came off easily and left my skin feeling soft and moisturized.
With the tint to this sunscreen, it’s perfect for days you need UV protection but want something light on your skin, rather than a heavy foundation. It’s also great that this sunscreen has no scent, so you’re protected from harmful UV rays without having that sunscreen smell clinging to you.
This sunscreen is described as a medium tint, which probably works well for most people. I did think the tint was a bit dark for my light complexion. It probably would have matched my skin tone better during or right after my beach vacation this summer!
When I try new products, I always monitor to see how my rosacea responds. Like the other OZ Naturals products I’ve tried, this sunscreen did not cause any irritation for my skin. The tint didn’t completely even out the redness of my skin from the rosacea, however. I need to apply makeup over the sunscreen when I want more even coverage to blend out my rosacea redness.
Overall, this is a great facial sunscreen that smooths on well, feels great to wear, and leaves skin moisturized – without any unpleasant scent.
This sunscreen comes in a 2-ounce bottle, and it’s available at Amazon.com.
