Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen Gold Shimmer Lotion - SPF 30
"I have been thinking about the best way to write this review for days; I want to do it justice. First of all, this sunscreen does its job. I wore it for several days last week in 90 degree weather with lots of sun and humidity, and I did not burn. It does go on fairly white, but most mineral/zinc-based sunscreens do; this part wasn't particularly surprising to me. If you rub enough, it does mostly blend into your skin. But you know what doesn't blend into your skin?...the gold sparkles! In fact, they get everywhere. I used a different sunscreen on my face, but when I touched it with my sparkly hand, BOOM, sparkles on my nose. When I hugged my boyfriend, BOOM, sparkles on his shirt. When I sat on a seat on the Metro, SPARKLES. When I retied my shoe, SPARKLES. Bare Republic is not messing around. If you scrub in the shower, the sparkles do come off (otherwise, you bring them to bed with you). But honestly, after a year and a half of hiding in my house due to COVID-19, I'm now vaccinated and ready to go outside and celebrate life. And this sparkly sunscreen is helping me do it. 10/10 would recommend. Sincerely, The Sparkles Fairy" — Elizabeth L.
