Sunscreen Review Part II: Skinceuticals, Farmacy, Glossier, Dr Jart, Darphin

This is part II of my review of (mostly) physical sunscreens. You can find Part I, here. As a reminder, I’m tan and a 2Y08 or 3Y07 using Sephora’s Color IQ system. I also wear sunscreen on top of moisturizer, several serums and eye cream. My skin is combination with oily t zone and dehydrated cheeks. I rarely wear foundation on top of sunscreen.
I also don’t/can’t use products with coconut oil or capric/caprylic triglycerides (i.e., fractionated coconut oil). So there are likely some other mineral sunscreens out there that are wonderful but I can’t use them.
[Note: I’ve also reviewed some Japanese and Korean sunscreens that use chemical filters.]

Hydropeptide Solar Defense SPF 50, Non-Tinted Sunscreen Review

This product review is not my typical review that is related to the pH level of skin care. But I felt that I had to write a review of this new sunscreen because I couldn’t find any other reviews specifically on the SPF 50¬†. I purchased it anyway, hoping that it would be as good as the SPF 30. ¬†Unlike the SPF 30, it is not tinted. I have not actually tried the SPF 30 but it has some good reviews. [Update: Click here to read my other sunscreen reviews.]
