I've been wanting to do a #sunscreen post for a while, and then i saw @beautyandthecat's #sunscreenweek posts! 💕 here's most of my sunscreens in current rotation (forgot to include a couple that i'm not currently using). i favor asian sunscreens over their western counterparts. the formula is much superior, and the pricing is very reasonable. ☀️ @apieu_cosmetics natural sun cream spf45+ pa+++: this is an empty. although i liked how quickly it absorbed, it pilled on my skin. will not repurchase. 😢 ☀️ @swanicoco.official bio cool mint gel spf50+ pa++++: my current face sunscreen. true to its name, love the light minty scent. absorbs quickly. does not dry out my skin. ☀️ @earthsrecipe water full sun gel: it leaves me looking dull in a weird way. no white cast. not my favorite. will finish it, but wnrp. ☀️ @andalounaturals un tinted bb spf30: leaves a white cast. 😢 i plan to use it on my décolletage and wnrp. takes longer to absorb compared to asian spf. meh. ☀️ @arconalosangeles mineral powder spf30 with a collapsible brush for to go touch ups: i love the shade range that arcona offers, and this shade works very well for me. however, dispensing the powder is a little tricky, and i'm never sure if i've applied a sufficient quantity. the bristles have started falling already... costs around $45. will probably not repurchase. ☀️ @aveenous wet skin pro sunscreen spf30: bought this just yesterday from #marshalls. no white cast. easy to spray on. can't wait to put it to test. ☀️ @makeprem spf50+ pa++++: i was so excited about purchasing this. i paid about $22 for a huge 200 ml bottle. it absorbs quickly, but sadly leaves a white cast on my face. 😭😰 will primarily use it on my arms and décolletage, which is ok by me. i can see myself going through this bottle very quickly. ☀️ it's my cushion custom made for touch ups after watching @gothamista's yt video: bought the container from ebay for $13. sadly, it has the #makeprem sunscreen right now. i need to find some other fluid sunscreen for my touch ups. i am optimistic about this "method" too. even though the sunscreen left a white cast, i am loving how easy it is to reapply, and get even coverage on the go. 👍

bzzz protection spray is one of my favorites, i've been so anticipating making this formulation this spring! it smells so good (to us!) and makes us smell super icky to gnats, flies, skeeters and other biting, flying critters!
