It's sheer, it blends in very nicely, and it protects my face from the sun, but it doesn't leave a white cast at all. In fact, it leaves a glow thanks to the moisturizing ingredients in the sunscreen such as the jojoba oil and avocado oil. I love it very much and it makes me feel included because there is finally something out there for me.
Love this sunscreen! We’re very diligent about using sunscreen at our house and all the others leave a white or silvery haze on our dark skin. Black Girl Sunscreen doesn’t do that. I even use it as a daily facial moisturizer!
I absolutely LOVE this sunscreen! I'm a Black woman who has had trouble finding a good sunscreen. The other sunscreens would leave white residue on my skin or break me out on my face. Black Girl Sunscreen blends in well the same way lotion goes on your skin. It leaves no white residue and doesn't have that "chemical smell". It also doesn't break out my skin. I can't use any other sunscreen but this one!
Not Fragrance Free and Not enough protection against UVA rays. Makes you look like you bathed in oil.

This is a chemical sunscreen with Avobenzone as its UVA protection. Which degrades quickly when exposed to the sun, which means you need to reapply this sunscreen every hour. While this sunscreen does go on a clear, it has a lot of cons as well. First, the makers claim that this fragrance free, but because its addition of fruit oils like avocado it definitely has a strong scent. If you're sensitive to smell/fragrance don't bother with this. Secondly, this sunscreen is very oily. I have dry skin, but this makes my skin looks like a grease pit, and it never dries down. What I would love to see is a tinted physical sunscreen with no added fruit oils. PoC are in great need of physical sunscreens that can work for us.
So I never wear face makeup only skincare and this sunscreen is EVERYTHING! Everyone asks what I use to get my glow and it's only Black Girl Sunscreen. I always feel glowy never oily because a little bit literally absorbs into my skin and hydrates it. I've yet to come across a sunscreen that didn't leave a white tint and that would easily rub in not only on my face but my entire body. I love the ingredients because as a vegan I ONLY purchase things that are clean and cruelty free. Finally a product for us!
