Can anyone recommend a lovely mineral face spf (tinted or untinted)

That’s it, really. I’ve used the Jan Marini one before but it is far too expensive. I’ve used Altruist’s face fluid before and to be fair, I don’t think it exacerbated my (mild) rosacea but I can’t quite remember! I have a Uriage one but it leaves me with a very obvious cast. I’d like it to be fragrance free also. Thanks in advance.

Sunprise mild and airy is lovely. Possibly not great if you have dry skin. I also tried ultra violette who were doing a tester set of 4 but the mineral one made my eyes sting. Ugly duckling skincare on Instagram always seems to recommend sum bum, she tests a lot of mineral ones so probably worth a look.

I’ve never heard of these brands! I’ll look them up, thank you!

Are you uk based? I ordered sunprise from stylevana it was so slow for delivery but worth it in the end and they had so many options I would have a look and then google some that take your fancy and see if they have good reviews

Yes UK based. I’ve looked them up. The surprise one has eucalyptus but the ultraviolette seems fragrance free. I’m experiencing a mildly bumpy nose at the moment and just think a mineral spf might be worth trialling. Not sure what triggered it, though. How long did delivery take? I just wish there was a reasonably priced one you could just pick off the shelf!

It did take weeks! I can’t remember exactly though. Did you look at ugly duckling on Instagram? I’m not too bothered on mineral or physical but she definitely recommends a lot of mineral ones you might be able to find one with better availability?

Yes but I struggle with Instagram. I see she suggests the sun bum (what a name). I’m thinking of trying the altruist one again as it isn’t a bad price. Then maybe could use something like a tinted one for face (I don’t like tinted for neck or ears).

Even the untinted one looks like you’ve got the most flawless foundation on

Oh yes- I have used that before and see they also do tinted ones now! Great ideas from all of you- much appreciated!

I quite like the Sam Bunting one, there is tinted or untinted, the tinted one is probably not quite enough coverage for me but I do use it by itself sometimes on good skin days!
