Two of my must-have summer skincare products? Definitely a good facial spray and sunscreen!
I have talked about Tula’s Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen a lot on here and it truly is one of my favourite sunscreens since it’s so lightweight, doesn’t feel like sunscreen (or smell like it). It also helps nourish your skin and provide you with bluelight protection. I love it so much that when I got a package from Tula in the mail last week and it contained a brand new sunscreen, I was hesitant to even try it.
But let me tell you, I’m glad I did.
The Tula Mineral Magic Mineral Sunscreen Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($38 USD) is brand new and is a different texture than my beloved Protect + Glow. This sunscreen is a weightless mineral sunscreen that gives you amazing sun coverage without a greasy feel. This is the key part in this product and to be honest, the biggest difference I have found. The Protect + Glow is a gel consistency, so therefore it can have a more greasy feel, whereas this one dries down into the skin more like a traditional facial sunscreen would.
Like its predecessor (which is also still available), the Mineral Magic also protects you against blue light damage and pollution, and helps to brighten and even out skin tone. This one also helps with oil throughout the day.
The formula contains the Tula’s Complex, which is a Super6 blend of prebiotics and probiotic extracts that help to improve skin smoothness and maintain skin balance. It also contains peach to brighten and even out skin tone; red algae to provide oil control and antioxidant protection; and wild butterfly ginger to help protect your skin against the damaging effects of bluelight and pollution.
So which Tula sunscreen is the right one for you? Honestly, this is a toughie since I love the Protect + Glow so much. I have been really enjoying this one as well and appreciate the fact that it’s a mineral formula and won’t give your skin a shiny look to it. If you have oily skin, you might not like their original sunscreen since it does give you a glowing finish, and that’s where this one would come in handy since it’s more of a matte finish.
Also new to Tula is another spray, the Antioxidant Water Purifying Toner Face Mist ($36 USD). This mist is a toner that hydrates and purifies skin while protecting it against bluelight protection and feeding antioxidants to your skin.
Tula also has another spray as well but this one acts more like a toner (but is really a jack of all trades). Spray this on to purify and tone skin, soothe and hydrate, provide protection against pollution and bluelight, and feed antioxidants in your skin.
It contains the brand’s Tula Complex; witch hazel and wild mint leaf to purify and tone skin; hyaluronic acid to hydrate; green tea and wild butterfly ginger to protect skin against aggressors; and cucumber water and holy basil to soothe and calm the look of irritation.
So what’s the difference between this one and the Signature Glow Spray? Well the Signature Glow is designed to help with brightening dull-looking skin, as well as hydrating it. It contains a lot of the same ingredients as the new one, but Antioxidant Water is a jack of all trades. You can use it as a toner, as a refresher, or just whenever you want a little pep in your day. Both are good, but if you don’t use a toner already, then this would be a great option since you just spray it on. I also want to add that the bottle itself on this is awesome as the product just mists lightly on your face. It’s very refreshing!
Both of these items are ones that Tula already have in their collection but I find they do help with providing options for more specialized skincare needs. As always, if you want to give these a try (or any Tula product), use code SHAYNA for 15% off your order (brings the sunscreen down to $32.30 and the spray to $30.60).
Have you tried any of Tula’s sunscreens or sprays?
