Wearing sunscreen was something I always dreaded. Then, I found this gem that convinced me to make SPF my BFF. A tinted sunscreen that leaves no white cast or greasiness behind? Just take my money! For someone who has acne prone skin, I generally prefer going for less to no base makeup. But I still enjoy an even skin tone and blurred out blemishes that I try to achieve with mainly skincare alone. And this newly launched sunscreen really came through for me on that front.
From the moment I saw what it had to offer, I knew I had to try it. Who doesn’t want a product that protects the skin from the sun and gives the benefits of a light coverage foundation, right? Not all tinted sunscreens match Indian skin tones so I had to put this to the test. After trying it out, I have to say I have no regrets. In fact, I can actually replace my foundation and concealer with it for everyday easy-breezy beauty looks. Find out all about the sunscreen I’m raging about through my honest review.
The POPxo Selfie Ready Tinted Sunscreen will have you looking snatched while you stay protected from the sun. It has a lightweight, non-greasy formula that gets absorbed by the skin and gives it a matte finish. It leaves no white cast and covers up dark circles, dark spots, acne, and corrects uneven skin texture. The formula offers broad spectrum UV protection which covers blue light protection as well. It has SPF 50 PA+++ which means it allows you to bask in the sun without a care in the world. It is also water resistant, so you can go for a swim and still look camera-ready.
It’s like an Instagram filter for your skin and involves no makeup whatsoever. There’s nothing about this sunscreen that raises a red flag. The texture is smooth and it makes my skin feel soft and silky without any grease. The tint adjusts to my skin tone well and it doesn’t look too light or dark. The sheer coverage formula effectively conceals my dark circles and even blurs out my spots and blemishes. The best part is, the spinach extract in the formula helped soothe my acne too and made for a comfortable wear.
