I definitely didn't need to make another sunscreen purchase this year, but after hearing YouTube star Hyram rave about First Aid Beauty's Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 in his "The Best Sunscreens of 2020!" video from late last month, I simply couldn't help myself. I was a woman influenced, and I had to have it. And well, your girl has zero regrets, because, in the span of just two weeks, it's become one of my favorite SPFs ever. (That's right, I said it.)

I'm not sure what aspect of this mineral SPF I adore most: the barely-there tint that diffuses redness and discoloration, or the fact that it literally looks and feels like nothing on the skin. Because it's so weightless, I can apply multiple layers, and get even better protection, without it ever feeling heavy or like it's clogging the hell out of my pores. Speaking of which: It actually has this incredible blurring effect that minimizes the look of my pores... just another noteworthy feature I love about the formula.

Here's another photo of me wearing it, folks. My apologies for the awkward arm/hand placement.

Now, let's dive a little deeper into the formula, shall we? Ingredient-wise, it's made with nano-free zinc oxide for UVA and UVB protection, as well as antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing green tea, anti-inflammatory licorice root extract, and hydrating glycerin. It also contains titanium oxide for added protection and is safe for even super sensitive skin types. I would know, considering I have incredibly reactive skin that can't handle certain sunscreens.

I haven't stopped reaching for this sunscreen since I first tried it out two weeks ago, and considering how much I've been loving it so far, I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a staple in my routine for years to come. If you're in the market for a mineral sunscreen that's great for all skin types and feels featherlight, definitely think about picking this one up. You can score it now for $34 on sephora.com.

Thanks for the fire recommendation, Hyram!
