My favourite sunscreen is the Tula Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
I’ve tried a lot of facial sunscreens and they have the tendency to feel thick on my face or pill after I apply them. This particular Tula one has a gel consistency to it so it absorbs nicely and doesn’t leave a layer on the surface of your face.
Now when it comes to actually adding coverage to my skin, IT Cosmetics’ CC Cream is usually my go to, with the Rodial and Smashbox versions as close second. Tula doesn’t have makeup products since they are a skincare line, however, they have recently introduced a new product that melds together sunscreen and coverage and I couldn’t be more excited to try it.
The Tula Brightening Serum Skin Tint Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($40 USD) is a skin tint that is weightless in texture while still leaving your skin feeling breathable. It has a serum-like formula to it and in addition to providing you with SPF 30 sun protection, it also evens the look of skin tone and increases your skin’s radiance.
The formula contains their new Rainbow Seabright Elixir, which contains rainbow seaweed and niacinamide and helps to even out the look of skin tone and brighten and protect skin from blue light and pollution. It also has hyaluronic acid and ceramides to improve skin hydration and suppleness, as well as their S6Pro Complex to improve skin smootheness and collagen to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Tula sent me a few shades to try out and since this is their first true makeup-esque product (aside from their Filter Primers), I do have to say that they outdid themselves with the shade range. The colours range from very light to very dark and everything in between. Tula actually worked with professional makeup artists that are experienced in working on diverse skin tones to come up with the extensive shade range.
Now when it comes to application, I have just been applying it with my fingers and find it absorbs and blends in nicely that way. You can of course also use a brush for a more flawless application. Overall it leaves you with a nice light coverage, something that is not as heavy as the IT Cosmetics version or others that are similar that I have tried.
Unfortunately this is not available in Canada on the Tula site as of yet since it is technically a sunscreen (their sunscreens aren’t available in Canada yet) but if you are in the United States then I would look out for it if you are already a Tula fan (use code SHAYNA for 15% off!). I can see myself wearing this on a daily basis since it is so lightweight and gives me just enough coverage that I don’t need to wear makeup if it’s a day where I’m not going anywhere or doing anything but want to have a little bit of skin coverage.
Will you be trying Tula’s new sunscreen?
