Let me introduce you today to C’est Moi mineral sunscreens – the drugstore hidden gems that no one ever talks about, but you need to try ASAP!
Yes, they are affordable, amazing and ALL of these are on the EWG’s (Environmental Working Group) list of approved clean, reef-safe sunscreens.
C’est Moi mineral sunscreens are formulated with soothing, safe and gentle ingredients that your skin will love. And there are no ghostly white casts involved! In fact, all C’est Moi products are thoughtfully formulated specifically for sensitive skin, so they are free of fragrance, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil, propylene glycol or dyes.
Now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of each of the C’est Moi mineral sunscreens…
Made specifically for sensitive skin, this mineral fragrance-free sunscreen lotion is as nourishing as it is light and gentle on skin. It helps soothe and protect skin with ingredients like like zinc oxide, organic aloe, shea butter, plus extracts of strawberry, kiwi and apple. It’s also
water resistant (up to 40 minutes)
Texture-wise, it’s breathable and lightweight yet moisturizing. The formula is hydrating without feeling heavy, greasy or clogging pores and also works well as my everyday moisturizer.
This sunscreen might take a few extra seconds to blend in completely, but it does! And leaves absolutely NO white cast (despite 19% zinc oxide as the active ingredient!)
It dries down to a slightly dewy finish. On my dry skin, the initial dewiness goes away after about half an hour or so and it looks more like a satin finish. Those with combination to oily skin might find the finish of this sunscreen a bit shiny but if you have normal to dry skin like me, you’ll love it as much as I do (unless you prefer a matte finish SPF formula)
Also, the formula does not pill and works well under makeup. If chemical-based sunscreens irritate your skin or make your eyes sting, this mineral sunscreen is a must-have.
This is a multi-tasking tinted moisturizer with SPF that blends zinc based broad-spectrum mineral coverage with antioxidant-rich strawberry, kiwi and apple fruit extracts to instantly hydrate, balance, correct and protect skin.
With 13% Zinc Oxide as the active ingredient and a water resistant (40 minutes) fragrance-free formula, it comes in 4 shades:
Ivory – Fair with neutral undertones
Sand – Light to Medium with warm undertones
Honey – Tan with warm undertones (medium to dark skintones)
Cocoa – Dark with neutral undertones
Here are the swatches:
With a silky, breathable texture, it feels pretty lightweight and smooths onto skin without any greasiness, while providing a light dose of hydration. I tried the shade Sand (designed for light to medium skin tones) which works really well for me.
It blends easily providing sheer coverage (that just evens out my skin tone) and sets to a satin, semi-matte finish. It also wears nicely as a makeup base, leaving a smooth and satiny canvas.
It’s so great for everyday use with a hint of coverage and its natural satin finish makes it a great choice for normal to dry and combination skin types. This one is a fantastic addition to my list of best mineral tinted sunscreens perfect for warmer months when we all want that no-makeup glow!
In short, I am really loving this tinted sunscreen and can’t find any fault with it, except that I wish it came in more shades for a wide range of skin tones. The good news though is that the brand is working to expand the shade range by launching 4 new shades soon!
This mineral sunscreen lotion combines non-nano zinc oxide with a super-fruit antioxidant blend to nourish and defend skin against sun damage while keeping our reefs safe and happy too.
With 19% Zinc Oxide as the active ingredient, this sunscreen also has a moisturizing formula that’s water resistant (40 minutes). It has a slightly thicker texture but absorbs easily and doesn’t feel greasy or tacky on the skin.
However, it does leave a slight white cast so I use it as a body sunscreen. The formula is hydrating enough and replaces my everyday body lotion to keep skin moisturized & protected!
If you prefer zinc oxide based sunscreens like me but haven’t been able to find a gentle and affordable option that doesn’t leave a white cast on your skin, C’est Moi mineral sunscreens are sure to please!
With their clean EWG verified formulas, there are no irritation-causing ingredients to worry about even for those with sensitive skin and and won’t leave your skin looking chalky or ashy. C’est Moi says NO to animal testing, fragrance, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil, propylene glycol or dyes.
