We just got back from several days in the Cayman Islands and, aside from a small area on my back and shoulders where I was unexpectedly outside for 30 minutes without prepping my skin ahead of time, I returned to the states with zero sun damage and that’s because of the @koparibeauty Sun Shield Body Glow Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($39 for 5.1 ounces at @ultabeauty – https://rstyle.me/+Loz-66VZXNjEqnUGdPLJ0g)!
What it claims:
🔘 SPF 50
🔘 Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection
🔘 40 minute sweat and water-resistant
🔘 Luxurious and lightweight gel texture
🔘 Applies on clear, absorbs well into skin, non-greasy, and will not stick
🔘 Easy, mess-free application
🔘 A blend of SPF protection, superfood oils, antioxidants and natural pearlescent minerals for safe sun protection and a hydrated glow
🔘 Infused with Kopari’s signature sweet coconut milk scent
🔘 Clinically-tested, non-irritating, and allergy-tested
🔘 Clean, vegan, and cruelty-free
🔘 100% recyclable
There is so much I love about this product! The hydration, the scent, the glow, the sun protection – all combined, it is like no other sunscreen I’ve ever tried! If you have a darker skin tone, you may enjoy the Rose Gold version more (https://rstyle.me/+da1VL49t_xiUEIHCWbS1qQ). Where I disagree slightly are the mess-free, non-greasy claims. It’s nothing I wouldn’t expect from a product like this, but to say you basically won’t feel like anything is on your skin is a little bit of a stretch. Also, the price for the amount of product you need to use to cover all exposed areas of your body isn’t ideal. I used this for four (4) days, applying twice on a couple of those days and you can see how much I used. While I would love for this to become the only body sunscreen I use, I can’t afford to, so I plan to use just this on special occasions and then I’ll mix it with another sunscreen on regular days so that I still get the glow and hydration, but, that way, I’ll be able to make it last much longer!
