I am always nit-picking when it comes to sunscreens because if the formula isn’t up to the mark, it throws my entire beauty routine off track. A sunscreen that is lightweight, non-greasy, soothing, and skin-enhancing is gold standard for me as I can then apply makeup over it without my face feeling too overwhelmed with products. And when a sunscreen corrects my skin tone and delivers a radiant glow as well, I can even get away with going makeup-free and still look fab. Admittedly, only a select few sunscreens in the market check these boxes and they are usually super expensive.
But luckily I finally got my hands on an all-new sunscreen that is everything I could wish for without breaking the bank. My acne prone skin approves of the formula too. Here’s all you need to know about the hottest illuminating sunscreen that just launched in India which has taken my glow game to new heights.
The POPxo Glow Goals Illuminating Sunscreen does exactly what it says and more. It can be used as sun protection, a makeup primer base, a highlighter, and an illuminator. It serves up broad spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ that keeps the skin shielded from both UVA and UVB rays. The formula is slightly tinted and features gold dust which enables all that glow-boosting magic to happen. It is highly moisturising yet non-greasy and it doesn’t leave back any white cast either. The product offers blue light protection which means your skin is safe from UV damage even when indoors. Enriched with cocoa seed extract and sea plankton, it also helps reduce fine lines and dark spots while providing antioxidant protection.
It is the multi-tasking sunscreen of my dreams. The fact that it can double as a makeup primer, a highlighter, and an illuminator really does it for me. The formula did not trouble my acne-prone skin either and it made sure that my skin was smooth and not greasy or sticky. The gold dust and skin-like pigments in the formula offered lightweight sheer coverage to my skin and it helped blur out my dark circles and dark spots too. It even worked wonderfully under foundation and did not cause any cakeiness or greasiness. Since I love going makeup-free but also enjoy the glow you get from a highlighter, this sunscreen really catered to my needs in that aspect as well.
