Categories : Skincare

If you have tanned or dark skin, you know how hard it is to find a high coverage sunscreen that doesn’t look chalky and white. But after testing out dozens of sunscreens – both IRL and on phone pics – here are sunscreens that look good on dark skin.

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30  

Aside from being 100% clear – no white or purple cast! — it even blurs your pores and makes your skin look smoother. “It’s almost like a primer!” says Youtube beauty guru Jackie Aina says. Online beauty reviews also praise its non-sticky formula.

Shiseido Wetforce Clear Stick UV Protector Broad Spectrum 50+

We love the super high sun protection of SPF 50+, and how its thin formula can be worn both under makeup and over it. You know what that means? You can reapply throughout the day, which dermatologists actually recommend if you’re always in the sun.

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

The name says it all. This sunscreen was designed to give very powerful but invisible sun protection. It’s also weightless, scentless, and designed to give you a healthy glow.  Another great benefit: it doesn’t just protect you from the sun! It contains red algae, which shields you from the damage caused by blue light from your computer or phone.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF 50

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost range is amazing! We included the Hydro Boost Gel in our list of best drugstore moisturizers, and we also think it’s one of the best drugstore sunscreens too! It’s so much cheaper than other brands, so if you’re on a budget or just want to try something without breaking the bank, this one’s for you.

Alba Hawaiian Clear Spray Sunscreen

This clear sunscreen spray doesn’t make dark skin look ashy or white. Plus, the fine mist doesn’t feel sticky or heavy. We like using it to reapply sunscreen in the middle of the day, even if we’re not at the beach. Can’t be too careful about sun protection in Singapore!
