Description

Directions apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Be careful not to miss sensitive areas like the tops of the ears, back of the neck, lips, top of the head and your feet.To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a Broad Spectrum SPF of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including: limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses children under 6 months: Ask a doctor.

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.

I usually use the spf 30 but after ready on the black girl sunscreen website, that the 50 does not live a white cast I decided to go ahead and make a purchase. To my dismay it did have a white cast finish. I wish I had stay in it’s the spf 30, which would have prevented me from wasting money and having a sunscreen in my possession I can’t even use

The white cast is so prominent. And to think that since this brand is called BLACK girl sunscreen they would’ve did a lot more to make the cast not as visible. If you are darker tone do not waste you money.

Hated it. Skin felt dry and for the first time BGS left a white cast and I’m a medium brown. So I will not be using this one. Going to return it and go back to the original spf 30 formula.

Blended in completely on my dark skin w/o white streaks. Minimal smell so it didn't clash with perfume. My skin felt like I applied really good lotion. Didn't irritate my eye/nose when applied to my face. Will buy the SPF 50 again.

this sunscreen was horrible. if you're brownskin or dark brown, do not purchase this one. Their best sunscreen is the SPF 30. This sunscreen must be made for light skin women because it leaves a terrible cast and very hard to rub in. the lavender scent didn't bother me that much but the cast was not okay... I bought this one because I wanted a higher SPF but I see I'm gonna either stick w/ the SPF 30 or continue using the Hawaiin sunscreen. I made sure to finish the entire bottle because this sunscreen is expensive and I didn't want to waste my money .. but I will not purchase again. why market something for black girls and then have the same effect that most other sunscreens on the market do, which is leave a white cast on non white skin.'

AB - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I normally use the BGS make it matte, but my skin has been looking wayyy more oily that “glowy” with that formula, so I tried the hybrid version. Like the other reviews, I do agree that the lavender scent is a bit much. The hybrid formula does not make me greasy looking, however there is a little grayish cast left behind. I apply a small amount at a time and work it in gently, that seems to minimize the cast. Not a big deal tho. I think I may switch to this formula for the foreseeable future.

It’s easy to blend in and doesn’t leave a white cast, but I do have a fairer complexion. I wanted to like this because I thought the hybrid component would be better on my sensitive skin. The kids version causes less irritation without the hybrid’s very strong fragrance.

Very liquidy and gets wasted because so much comes out. Smells good at first, but then the smell is kind of stale after a bit? Left a bit of a white cast on dark skin. I liked the coverage, but prefer the 30 SPF

I love this brand, but didn’t like this particular SPF. If you love lavender than maybe this is for you, but I personally found the scent to be overwhelming! Also, my first squeeze out of the tube was soooo much product I feel like I used a lot of the bottle before even getting to really try it! I love the kids SPF, and will stick with that option.

I was very pleased with this sunscreen. As a darkskin woman, I was a little hesitant because of the mineral ingredient since I have bad experiences with physical block (white cast). While it does leaves a white cast initially, it also goes away after smoothing it in (not rough). I would add a little bit at a time to smooth quicker. Its keeps my face moisturized and gives it a glow (not oily). I also wanna say that while it says fragrance free, it does have a scent. I think it’s because the lavender is used for its skin benefits more so then fragrance. I’m good with lavender so I don’t mind. Lastly, pro tip, be careful when applying to your hands because it has a runny consistency.

I Had High Hopes Because I Use The SPF 30 Of BGS All The Time. I'm Medium Complexion But Sadly This Doesn't Work For Me. First Off The Lavender Scent Is Overwhelming. It Doesn't Dissipate With Time. Second It Leaves A Grey To White Cast. I Tried Letting My Skin Completely Dri, With And Without Moisturizer But Nothing Worked. I've Even Removed Any Facial Hair Or Peach Fuzz And Putting A Lesser Amount Of The Product On. Also I Think The Lavender Is Causing My Eyes To Burn And Water. Third It Also Peels And Leaves White Balls. I Did Try It On My Arms With The Same Results. I Was Really Hoping This Would Be An Affordable Option To The More Expensive Brands. I'm Not Sure How This Is Working For Anyone Who Has Medium To Dark Skin.
