I was really unsure based on reviews i read if i would like this tinted sunscreen or not. I was looking for a good and hearty sunscreen (30 spf) AND something to replace other tinted cosmetic items in my make up kit to get me closer to my zero waste goals. I have a more oily and sensitive skin type that breaks out easy with the wrong products. I am happy to announce that it works great and with no breakouts! With a little concealer and a light dusting of Elate pressed foundation and a bronzer i am ready to rock everyday! I definitely recommend melting it a bit in cooler weather between your palms before putting onto you face, but it works great and looks super natural. The coverage is SUPER light. If you need more coverage for your look, i think you could layer you standard liquid foundation over it too! I highly recommend this product! I have an olive skin tone, but i think someone with a lighter complexion could use this too. Like i said, the coverage is light. However, it is tinted, so you don’t get that weird blueish tint some sunscreen causes. Also, this is the ONLY moisturizer i use during daytime hours layered over my serums, as it is very hydrating. Hope that helps folks thinking about trying for the first time!
I've purchased this exact product before but from a different store, so when I bought this from ecocollective, I already knew what it would be like. The size of this tin is perfect - small enough to throw in my bag when I'm headed outside, whether to the beach/lake or just to the park for a picnic, but large enough to have a good amount of product inside (and so it doesn't get lost inside the bag :) I also now use my old empty tin in my bathroom to hold my aluminum crystal deodorant & shampoo bar from ecocollective! The product itself goes a long way - it's a really thick texture, so I've found that I don't need to use much of it to cover my face and shoulders. I used to use this as my everyday face moisturizer a few years ago, but it's definitely too thick and a little greasy for that, even for my dry Black skin. Now, I use a different daily moisturizer that has aloe vera (which has a weak natural SPF I think? Need to do more research), and for days when I'll be outside, I layer this tinted moisturizer/sunscreen on top, especially for my cheekbones/nose/shoulders where I burn the most. This layering technique works MUCH better for me and my skin. The sunscreen has a unique but nice smell, and the tint is very subtle, blending in to my skin nicely (note: I'm a mixed race Black person with medium skin tone). I liked this product enough to buy it twice, but I will probably try out some other ones when this one runs out.
I loved that this sunscreen was not in plastic and was searching for something lightweight for my daily use on my face. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that I would buy again. The tint is good, although it looks dark at first, it blends in to a nice neutral color (I have a fair complection). But the feel of the product is thick, oily and sticky. I have definitely used better all-natural sunscreens. It's wearable but not great.
You need just the smallest amount for you
My combination skin loves this cream! I use it as a daily face & neck moisturizer (morning + night). It is hydrating, lightweight, and a little goes a long way. It's got a pleasant smell and absorbs quickly. Love incorporating plastic-free alternatives into my skincare routine!
I bought this to use with the amber bottle with the serum pump and it works absolutely perfectly with the grapeseed oil, though not so much with the castor oil because it's thicker. Although the castor oil has a more neutral scent, the grapeseed oil is a bit stronger in smell yet very easy to use and it quicly penetrates. I use the grapessed oil on my face and castor oil on my body. The aluminum bottle it comes in can be reused as a good on-the-go or travel-size plastic-free way to take small amounts of liquid items. I would not recommend using this type of oil without a pump to dispense it though as it's very messy otherwise.
I bought this to use with the amber bottle with the serum pump, but unlike the grapeseed oil, it doesn't work so much with the castor oil because it's thicker. Unlike the grapeseed oil with its strong scent, castor oil has a netural scent and takes a bit longer to penetrate. I use the castor oil on my body and specifically on the dry ends of my hair in the front and back. The aluminum bottle it comes in can be reused as a good on-the-go or travel-size plastic-free way to take small amounts of liquid items. I would recommend using this type of oil without a pump to dispense because in my experience the oil is too thick and clogs up the pump. It's a plus that this oil is organic too.
Lotion is thicc and not greasy like other lotions ive used, thankfully. But ive fo
I love this lotion! I get it in bulk so it's super eco friendly and cost effective. It works for all purposes too, so no need for a million different products (yay for minimalism!). I have dry skin and this has replaced my thick body creams and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and smooth! I use this on my face too! I use a facial oil over top because I have especially dry skin, but for normal skin, this would probably work great!
Lightweight but creamy and moisturizing, and entirely non-greasy - feels great on my skin! It's unscented (you could easily add essential oils if preferred) and lasts a long time. Love that I now have a great plastic-free alternative added to my skincare products!
My dry skin LOVES this lotion. It absorbs into my skin beautifully, has no scent, and is a nice thick texture, which I think makes it last longer because I don't have to use as much product. Would recommend.
Its creamy, blends into skin easily, not greasy, no scent. EXACTLY what my dry skin has been craving.
Thank you for this great product!!
I will admit to having been a bit of a nail polish hoarder during my adolescent years, and have bought probably 100 nail polishes of different brands. My dad picked this color up for me while shopping here, and I didn't expect much - my default is to thing more natural products won't perform as well, however beneficial they are for the environment. Well I was dead wrong - this nail polish is buttery and beautiful, and is opaque with just one coat. The amount of compliments on the color on this polish far exceeded the name brand ones I usually bought. I cannot stress enough how worthwhile this investment is - please support this business!!!
This works way better than the name-brand nail polish remover I have. (It smells better, too.) Love it!
