This Week's Answer
Milk's Sunshine Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen is a silicone-free skin tint that blends into the skin for buildable, natural-looking light coverage like a BB cream, as the company describes.
The formula moisturizes skin with a blend of grapeseed, avocado, mandarin, jojoba and olive oils for a dewy, glowy finish. Olive-derived squalane (3.6%) seals in moisture and helps provide antioxidant benefits for fresh-looking skin.
Broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays—and reportedly has been reformulated to be coral reef-safe. The broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen contains non-nano zinc.
