Description

Moisturize your face and body while protecting it from harmful UVA/UVB rays with the Black Girl Sunscreen.

This sunscreen is broad spectrum with an SPF of 30. It is lightweight and eliminates all white residue.

It has been specifically crafted for women of color and is infused with natural ingredient such as avocado, jojoba, cacao, carrot juice and sun flower oil. These soothe, moisturize, protect, hydrate and heal skin.

Our story begins with the need for a sunscreen brand that caters exclusively to women of color.
From carrying expensive umbrellas to the beach to avoiding the sunshine all together, women of color have come up with their own methods of protecting their skin. For years, sunscreen has been tailored to light skin individuals, leaving behind a visible white-residue on our darker skin sisters. Blotchy makeup and white residue were enough to keep people from truly enjoying a beautiful sunny day. Our founder thought it was about time to change that.
In 2016, Shontay Lundy created Black Girl Sunscreen, a 30 SPF lotion infused with natural ingredients and formulated for women of color. Made with melanated skin in mind, BGS dries completely clear and protects melanin without the white-cast.
Today, BGS is making moves! Black Girl Sunscreen has grown exponentially because of you. The goal of BGS is to start the conversation globally around sun safety to educate and protect melanin beauties worldwide. Now with four products, we’re saying Black does crack and it’s in our power to protect it.

Q: Well if this isn’t racial division.

submitted by MollieMae - 2 years ago
  • A: You're right, it isn't racial division -- it's introducing a product to fill a need that hasn't been filled before: sunscreen that doesn't make dark skin look chalky. Which means that people with darker-hued skin can protect themselves without having to sacrifice appearance, which wasn't a problem for lighter-hued people. Now we can all put our skin health first! Hooray for inclusivity! (recognizing factual differences isn't division ... it's only "division" if you apply qualitative judgements to them)

    submitted byAster - 2 years ago
  • A: Black Girl Sunscreen protects people of ALL skin tones and helps to reach people of color who are more likely to skip sunscreen because most other brands leave a chalky residue on darker skin. I hope this helps!

    submitted byTeam BGS - 2 years ago
  • A: There is no difference between this chemical sunscreen and other chemical sunscreens other than the non-active ingredients, which may or may not be beneficial depending on your skin type (dry, normal or oily), rather than your skin color.

Q: What is the difference between the regular version and the kids version?

submitted by - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi there! Great question! The main difference between BGS Kids and the signature Black Girl Sunscreen is the SPF protection 50 vs 30. The BGS Kids contains soothing ingredients such as chamomile, hypoallergenic, and is great for ultra-sensitive skin. It can be used at age 6 months or older. The SPF 30 is sufficient for adult skin. It also contains ingredients such as jojoba which is beneficial for acne-prone skin and avocado a great moisturizer. And remember, a little goes a long way. Hope this helps!

Linzi - 10 days ago, Verified purchaser
I’d give this 4.5 stars. It’s a great SPF, assuming it’s actually working. It’s a bit hard to blend in and kind of leans more dry when applying but once you get it blended into the skin, it’s great. I tend to use an oil beforehand so maybe that helps it sink in faster. I do have to apply a little at a time but overall it’s good

Great for my dry skin! Super dewy finish, I think too dewy if you have oily skin. My skin is almost always dry and flakey so it feels very moisturizing as a last step. If you're skin is quite dry and you don't mind looking oily, I would do all your skincare, put a light layer of Vaseline or cerave healing ointment in *very* dry flakey spots, then put this on top as a last step. You're skin will feel hydrated for sure! And oily, but as a severely dry-skin person, I am a fan of this method lol

after months of hearing about this sunscreen on IG I decided to stop at ulta and grab it. the minute I squeezed it onto my fingers I knew I would like it. I have used a lot of different sunscreens and I could tell this was not going to be oily on my face. It felt more like a moisturizing cream than sunscreen . usually sunscreen goes on oily and take forever to blend in. This blends in so easily and is not oily! it's so moisturizing it doesn't even feel like a sunscreen. there is no oily or white residue left on my face. I am a light brown skin girl for reference. Also, it does not cause breakouts( been using 2 1/2 weeks now) or interfere with my acne treatments. it blends so well with my other facial products. I'm glad I gave in and bought this sunscreen. It is definitely top three for me!

I never wore Sunscreen! However recently I had to do to a medical procedure and heard about this product for Black women so I immediately purchased it. I love this product!! It's light weight, the scent is very mild. I apply this to my face daily, especially if it's sunny outside. Also it is the perfect 30 SPF I needed. I have oily skin haven't noticed any breakouts yet.

Having used the popular sunscreens that were available to me, I would hate the white residue that slid down my skin when it got wet. This does Not do that! It is way past time for melanated people to have products of all types that work for our skin so I’m so glad that the creator of this product and stores like target get that!

I absolutely love how moisturizing this is! I saw it on a makeup guru’s youtube channel & I’m thankful I did! I use strong chemical acne products, like Proactiv, that work well for my acne when used as directed, but also as the label reads can dry up my skin when exposed to sun light. But with this SPF moisturizer the dryness is improving & the cream disappears on your skin so the only thing left behind is a nice moist shine.

I LOVE this sunscreen. It is a bit pricey but No white cast & a little goes a looong way. Didn’t have to buy a new one until a year later. Does look a little greasy on the face but feels AMAZING. The ‘greasey’ look turns into a more refreshed look after a few minutes. My skin is very sensitive but this changed the game.

Finally found a sunscreen for colored skin that doesnt leave a white cast. However as I have acne prone and oily skin this does make my face more oily than usual, as with most sunscreen. If you like chemical sunscreen and no white cast but dont mind the greasy feel, go for this. It does blend very well.
