Anyone who has ever looked for a no-artificial-chemicals, all-mineral, whole-body sunscreen that does not leave you covered in a whitish film has been, until now, a very frustrated person. This brilliant SPF30 sinks in instantly, miraculously. And no, it has no nanoparticles either (if you’re the sort of person searching for the above ultimate formula, you do not want nanoparticles). And it smells nice!
YES TO CARROTS HYDRATING BODY LOTION WITH SPF 30, $15, YESTOCARROTS.COM
Feels incredible (cushy, moisturizing, healing) and looks fantastic: the perfect don’t-need-a-mirror tint.
If you’ve got mild dark circles, this tinted moisturizer-like formula is perfect. If it’s a more major problem, it’s the ideal moisturizer to smooth on before dabbing on thick, more pigmented concealer—you’ll need much less!
The truest-black, the glidingest formula on the market. Makes the crispest cat-eye or the smudgiest smoky eye and lasts all day (or night).
