With warmer weather and sunnier days in our future, it couldn’t be a better time to find a daily face sunscreen. I’ve had trouble finding a good, organic and natural everyday moisturizer with SPF so I’ve resorted to using a separate sunscreen and moisturizer on my face. This year, Badger released their SPF 20 Damascus Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen*, a non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic product that has broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with non-nano, uncoated mineral zinc oxide. The ingredients are 95% certified organic, 100% certified natural, while the formulation and packaging are also cruelty-free, reef safe, biodegradable, and planet-friendly.
Badger Balm, known for their certified organic and 100% natural body care products have also paved the way for affordable, clean, and effective sunscreen products. The SPF 20 Damascus Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen is the first tinted sunscreen offered from Badger and is an extension of the brand’s most popular face sunscreen, the Rose Face Sunscreen which was also recently reformulated this year.
I always get a bit nervous when I try out face sunscreen because so many formulas react negatively with my skin but the Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. In fact, I don’t mind wearing this sunscreen every day as I can apply it as a normal facial cream, underneath another facial product, or makeup. The texture is creamy yet very lightweight and does not feel like I’ve applied anything. The formula absorbs into skin quickly and is very moisturizing without being greasy or oily.
This sunscreen features damascus rose, chamomile and lavender as highlighted ingredients, which all work to soothe, refresh and revitalize delicate skin. The rose scent is delightful and pleasant, not too overpowering. If you’re not a fan of rose scents, Badger also has some other sunscreens that are unscented.
The tint looks quite pigmented out of the tube but is very sheer once blended into the skin. It adds a nice glow to the skin and seems to blur out redness, helping to even out my complexion. I think the tint also helps to reduce a white cast that is often experienced with face sunscreens. However, this formula does not have a white tint and doesn’t leave behind any annoying residue whatsoever. Can I get an aw yeahhh?!
I was surprised to find that the hint of tint in this product would match so nicely with my skin tone and I think because the tint is so sheer, it really could work with many other light to medium skin tones. I don’t know how it would work with darker skin tones but hopefully, Badger will add another shade soon.
I’m so glad I’ve found a good natural, organic daily sunscreen! I also love that the packaging is eco-friendly and easy to carry around in my makeup bag when traveling. Badger’s SPF 20 Damascus Rose Tinted Face Sunscreen is now my go-to moisturizer, SPF, and makeup base all-in-one. I highly recommend you try this product if you’ve been searching for a good, no-nonsense, organic SPF moisturizer or face sunscreen. $24.99 for 1.6 oz at Badger or at The Choosy Chick
