Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
I have combination, blemish-prone skin and use a variety of creams and serums to help fade dark spots left by healed acne scars on my back, chest, and face. However, I neglected using sunscreen on my face for decades, because the formulas were usually too heavy, caused breakouts, and irritated my eyes (especially waterproof sunscreens). Within the past 5 years I'd found a Korean brand of sunscreen that didn't cause me to breakout, but it still took a while to absorb and irritated my eyes. Amazingly, however, Black Girl Sunscreen is perfect. No eye irritation, no acne breakouts, layers well with my other skincare, and dries completely sheer into my light-brown skin. The best effect is that it leaves my skin feeling moisturized, not oily so I don't need to use a separate moisturizer underneath it. Instant fave.
I really wanted to like the product. When I was using the product I started noticing cystic acne on my chin and jaw. I though it was hormonal, but I researched and saw that this sunscreen had the potential to clog skin which it did to me. Also very greasy, my face looked very oily throughout the day. Recommend this sunscreen for people with dry skin. The only good thing about this product is that it didn't leave white residue like other sunscreens do, definitely black skin friendly.

I have 2 tubes of this because I was running out. I love this sunscreen but the new tube smells like chemicals. The older tube has a subtle fresh scent. I will not put this one on my face, just my hands. I'll stick to my SPF moisturizer cream for face. Buyer beware.

I absolutely love Black Girl no white cast SPF 30 sunscreen. I wear it daily with and w/o makeup! It hydrates and protects my face. Tried the Hybrid SPF 50, but it left a slight white cast. Try the SPF 30…highly recommend!

Black Girl here: I have been using this product for months!!! As someone who suffers from oily, acne prone and sensitive skin this has been this product has never caused a breakout and leaves my skin with a natural glow and protected. The only advice I have is that VERY LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!!
Shannan from United States
I wanted to like this, I tried it for a month but this suncreen is so thick and greasy that every time a wear it I have a new pimple by the end of the day. Also, I found it was problematic if I got it abywhere around my eye area, my eyes would water up so much that tears would roll down my cheeks. If you have dry skin, this might be good for you since it is intensely moisturizing.
Kam from New Mexico
I have moderate eczema with burning and itching from other sunscreens, and I found this product after trying many other brands. It works well, no white cast, and best of all no skin irritation. Highly recommend.
Bre from Chicago
It is a great sunscreen. It does leave my skin with a oily sheen. But it is moisturizing.
Patrice from North Carolina
This is the only sunscreen that I wear. I have gotten quite a few compliments at how dewey my skins looks when I wear this. As someone with dry skin I like that this helps to further moisturize my skin.
Charlottee from Sugar Land, Texas
It goes on without leaving a white residue and moisturizes without feeling heavy or greasy. I use it daily and bought it for my daughter's to try.

3.5 stars. I love the concept of this product but it's not for me. After sweating at the gym, I had a white line around my hairline from where the sunscreen started melting off or whatever. I also got sunburnt on my nose while using this.

Freda from Denver, colorado
Furst of all, black girls need real subscreeb too. Calling it black girl sunsscreens and then putting avobenzone and all those other toxic ingredients realky stinks! Thus product is rude and goes against the love you are supposedly promoting towards the black community. Avobenzome causes skin allergies! Avoid it!
Jackie from San Diego

Checkeredrain from Prattville, Al
This product is pretty lightweight and soaks right into my dry to normal skin. It has no white cast and leaves my skin with a natural glow. I feel very protected with this on and never leave the house without it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Best sunscreen ever at a great price, goes on underneath makeup.
Marion from Tampa
I purchased two of these and used them both once. My face began to itch and ultimately swell with both bottles after one use. I tried to contact customer service for the product and no response. It was extremely painful and my face was irritated.
Evelala from Houston
I have dry skin, I hate how sunscreens make ny skin feel. However this sunscreen is phenomenal. Its SO moisturzing; I literally could apply it on my face all day. I really hope they consider increasing the spf to >45 one day!
JT from Pennsylvania
Doesnt burn, doesnt leave white film, lasts long, leaves skin glowing. A little goes a long way! Great for overall face and body use.
Gwen from DC
A very good product for brown skin, it doesn't leave white residue on your skin amd it's moisturizing.
Yari from Albuquerque
Definitely one of my favorite sunscreens! It doesn't leave a white cast and it feels great on my skin! Very moisturizing, but if you have combination or oily skin try the matte finish. This will give you a shine or glow but might be too much if you have oily skin.
