        Comments about BareMinerals Prep Step Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Shield Daily Prep Lotion:

        I have been on the hunt for a sunscreen that does not break me out and that is convenient for me to pick up for years. My manager recommended this a month ago and I decided to splurge, take a chance, and if it didn't work out, I could easily return it. Let me tell you something. I am in love with this product. It goes on beautifully, it does not break me out, and works perfectly under makeup. I have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin and this product works for me. I finally can wear sunscreen on my face! I won't leave anywhere without it.

          My skin is especially finicky. I've been on tje market for a good sunblock since I use retinol. The retinol tends to make my skin a little sensitive so many chemical sunblocks make my skin burn. This does not! It doesn't leave any white residue to my face, it's non greasy and applies easily. However, it is soooo drying. It sucks all the moisture out of my skin. I really like this but I think if your skin os. More dry, make sure you use a really good moisturizer.

                Comments about BareMinerals Prep Step Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Shield Daily Prep Lotion:

                In terms of wearability under makeup, this is the best physical sunscreen I've found. It goes on like smoothly and evenly and leaves me feeling dewy but not sticky. My BM mineral foundation goes on great over top. That being said, I'm sort of skeptical about it being as effective an SPF as it claims. If I were going out for a day of sport with no makeup over top, I would definitely not wear this. It says it has 23.5% zinc oxide which is SO high - even dedicated natural sunscreen brands like Badger max out at 18%. And those sunscreens are TACKY. I believe there's some protection there, but I sort of feel like they lost some credibility telling me there's so much zinc. I have a SkinCeuticals physical spf 50 which is a pretty high-quality brand and it has only 5% zinc oxide in it (6% titanium dioxide.) Similar consistency to this. I am going to trust it as everyday protection under makeup because there's nothing else I find as wearable, but I'm still going to be hyper sun-conscious. It's better than using chemical spf which has some worrisome studies out there and produces free-radicals on your skin as a by-product of the chemical reaction. That's just as bad as a little sun!

                        This product can certainly be worn without foundation, alone, but please note that it provides no coverage. Micro-encapsulated pigments blend with your skin tone and dry to an invisible finish so you don't see white. It is formulated without oils, parabens or fragrance, so it's a smart choice for those with sensitive skin!
