National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Hello BIC, 


As you might all know National SPF Day ☀️ this year is rapidly approaching. May 27, 2023. I like to think SPF Day is every day because it is so important for our skin! I would love everyone to share their tips and tricks for sun safety and of course favourite sunscreens.


My favourite combo right now is using Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Mineral Milk Sunscreen 1.7 oz / 50 mL as my base and applying Tower 28 Beauty SunnyDays SPF 30 Tinted Sunscreen Foundation 20 Mulholland  over it. Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Mineral Milk Sunscreen 1.7 oz / 50 mL I am still able to apply sunscreen over my makeup and it still gives a great finish and does not mess up my makeup! I also try to always wear a hat if I am going to be outside for an extended time and I never forget to protect my eyes with sunglasses 🕶️.


Right now I have been wanting to try these SPF:


Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 P... 

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sunscreen SPF 50 

Evereden SPF 50 Premium Mineral Sunscreen 2 oz / 60 mL 


Drop a comment below and share your favorite SPF or tips and tricks to enjoy the summer safely.


Happy National SPF Day!!!


Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I love and have been using for about 3yrs #Murad SPF50 and #Murad SPF45. They never fail me. Ive tried others but they pill. 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

My favorite SPF ranked in order


Beekmans milk primer spf 35

Cetaphil liquid spf 50

Dr.Jart everyday sunscreen spf 50+
Hero mineral sunscreen spf 30

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I use Hero sunscreen, SPF 30. It has a green tint as well to combat redness. I wear it every single day and I love it. It isn’t greasy once it sinks in and sets. 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Me too! Hero is great 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Neutrogena has the best sunscreen, and it is so underrated! I use invisible daily defense, it has SPF 60+. This goes on without a tint and gives a glow, with a SUPER hydrating effect. it is enviourmentally friendly, and has ginger and vitamin E. despite being kinda small it genuinely lasts me years. you all should definitely try it!

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I tried the very popularized ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation as the sample sheet happened to be in my last order. Unfortunately it ended up being too drying for my skin, I prepped well and used one of my most reliable moisturizers Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream Classic 2 oz/ 60 mL , but this foundation was immediately too dry even when trying to spread it across my face and neck. Luckily only a few mild "irritation bumps" that I only get when my skin is being dried out by what I've put on it after trying this through daytime, even with my skin feeling tight and a tiny bit itchy due to that tight feeling. 
I did see the reviews are very mixed on this as well, and I do agree with the very unpleasant smell - it took a while for it to go away to the point it wasn't noticeable.
How have other people been finding it?

Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 PA+++  has a fan following on the boards. Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Mineral Milk Sunscreen SPF 30 1.7 oz / 50 mL is in my top 5 all-time fave sunscreens. 💖 I remember seeing innisfree Daily UV Defense Invisible Broad Spectrum SPF 36 Sunscreen come up time and time again in polls, brackets, etc. on the forum. Soleil Toujours Clean Conscious Body Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C SPF 30-50 is a new-to-Sephora prestige sun care brand. I've had my eye on a couple of their products and while I haven't had the best of luck with sunscreen mists, this promo and item is in my car. 🛒


Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

@itsfi  Oooo this is a great promo! 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Love the items available in the promo. Is gwp available in Canada @ather?

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

@itsfi  Sadly no. I just checked. Darn!! 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Grrr 😖 ugh!!! @ather fingers crossed 🤞🏼 it makes its way up North @ather!

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

@itsfi  right! I wonder if one of them isn’t available here. I’ll have to check! 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Good point @ather. I forget that your SPF regulations can mean different requirements, including different labeling standards. Hoping y’all get something similar. SPF is a must and this is a great way to try out some good sunscreens.

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I love Sun Bum products—the Face Mist with SPF 45 is bomb, and all their products smell amazing!

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

These are some fabulous sunscreen picks @pam956! Tower 28 SunnyDays is a go to skin tint of mine. ♥️ 


The Kosas DreamBeam SPF is in my current rotation and I’m really liking the slight blurring effect it provides - evens out my skin tone,  works beautifully as a primer and protects against UVA & UVB rays. There have been several days these past couple of weeks where it’s just the Kosas SPF, concealer and lip balm for me. 👍🏼 @Sweensxo 

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I’ve heard the Kosas DreamBeam Silicone-Free Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 with Ceramides and Peptides 1.3 oz / 40 ml is amazing is next on my list of sunscreen to try!!

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I’ve been looking for a good recommendation for a body spf. I have extremely sensitive skin so I am sensitive to both fragrances and burning. Let me know what you love!

Re: National SPF Day 2023 ☀️

I’ve been loving the Peter Thomas Roth Max Vitamin D-Fense Sunscreen Serum! NO CAST, it melts into the skin and blends so well with my other A.M. skin care products 💕
