Summer is in full swing and I pretty much spend my days in shorts and tank tops. I put sunscreen on my face every day and I was just about to run out of my drugstore sunscreen so I decided to shop around for a new sunscreen. The Tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion has been on my radar since its release last Summer. This sunscreen is chemical-free and along with protecting you from the sun, is supposed to be moisturizing which sounds great for my dry skin. This sunscreen is a little pricey so I waited for a sale on the Tarte website to purchase it.
The packaging is very attractive and I love throwing it in my bag for reapplying during the extra sunny days. The bottle is covered by a rubberized sleeve that I find does get dirty somewhat easily (similar to NARS packaging). The bottle has a pump that makes the sunscreen easy to apply. The sunscreen doesn’t have the typical coconut scent, which I personally love, but a light floral scent. The scent doesn’t linger and even with my sensitive skin, doesn’t irritate me.
Since this a mineral sunscreen I expected the sunscreen to leave a white cast on my face, but I was pleasantly surprised when it rubbed in well. This sunscreen is lightweight and I like to wear this sunscreen under my makeup and don’t really have any issues with it. However, I do wish this sunscreen were water resistant. On a hot Summer day when I know I might get sweaty I would definitely choose not to wear this sunscreen.
This is a nice, lightweight, chemical-free sunscreen that is good for everyday use. If you are going to be sweating or going for a swim, wear a water resistant sunscreen instead. Overall this is a really nice chemical-free sunscreen option but the price may deter some.
