Sunscreen for dark skin
17

Janif · 08/08/2022 16:21

Does anyone have recommendations for supermarket/high st sunscreen for black skin. No white/chalky look and ideally moisturising. I've been using either Nivea or Boots and own brand and neither are cutting it really. Equally, I'd prefer not to spend £20 a bottle.

TIA

Garnier Ambre Solaire has an invisible spray suncream, my partner uses it as it doesn't leave any white marks and seems to protect well

Soltan from boots does the trick! No whiteish/ silverish cast.

For a bargain price, lovely smell and no white marks, I like primark spray ( aerosol) sun cream).

If you do use it go for 50+ protection so you can use it both as a moisturiser and a sun protection. Then do your make up or whatever you tend to prefer thereafter.

Piz buin is lovely- really light and lotiony, no white marks.

This one is light, not greasy and doesn't leave a cast. Good for sensitive skin and moisturises. At the higher price point but it's on offer from Boots at the moment.

I prefer mineral sunscreen. But I use Murad city skin defence which leaves no- hardly any white cast.

I really like Le Roche Posay Anthelios SPF50. Light, non-greasy, good under make up and you don’t get the white cast. It’s about £20, though.

Are you on FB? If so, join POC Skincare. That group changed my life, loads of recommendations for every conceivable skincare need. 😁

Banana Boat is fantastic it's pricey but if you find it in Home bargains or Bodycare stock up. It's in a can and it's a spray on sun cream.

It's the best I've had the way it makes my skin glow! I also like Niviea or Soltan.

This is great with zero white cast and very creamy. But sadly £££ 😔

I was just going to try this sunscreen as I can no longer afford the Murad city defence for £60.00
