There's regular sunscreen and then there's Brightening Sunscreen. Uniquely formulated to go beyond just helping to protect your skin from the sun. It has added vitamin C, alpha-arbutin and olive derived nutrients to provide hydration, an antioxidant boost and help your skin-look brighter.

While we love a day of fun in the sun too, research shows it is the number one cause of premature aging. So it's important to protect your skin at all times - even on a cloudy day. Developed with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, these 100% mineral-based skin-protectors offer broad spectrum SPF 30 to help block both UVA rays that are linked to causing fine lines and wrinkes and UVB rays that can cause skin-damaging sunburns.

Use daily along with other sun protection measures to help protect your skin from damaging sunburns, premature aging and enjoy brighter-looking skin with added vitamin C and alpha-arbutin. Both ingredients are known to help reduce the look of dark spots.

Size 1 fl. oz.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If you are a person of color, avoid this sunscreen I purchased this at the end of the summer because there was a 50% off sale. I already had a sunscreen so I didn't use this right away. When I did, oh boy. We're not talking a mild white cast; i was noticeably gray, LOL. I had to wash my face and start over from scratch. I know mineral sunscreens can be tricky to formulate for every skin tone so I give it three stars because the formulation felt really light and it truly is waterproof (as I found out when I tried to wash it off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best! This product has protected my face and arms when I've had to be out in the blazing sun playing tennis. Almost 60, I have few lines or wrinkles and no sun spots and I give a lot of the credit to using this product when I have to be in the sun.

Does this make my face white? Is it water based like Nivea? 

Asked by: 2008K
Hello. Because sun protection is provided by titanium dioxide and zinc, there's a risk it may leave a modest light cast; however, it's avoidable by thoroughly moisturizing and shaking the bottle before application. We are unable to compare our products to others as we are not properly educated on other brands.
