Summer officially starts this month, but chances are you are already spending time outside in the sun. Even if your summer is not so sunny, you should always consider putting on sunblock before you head outside. Since I was going to Hawaii, I knew I would need to pick up some more for my trip, but I was lucky to get some samples of Bare Republic Sunscreen made by COOLA Suncare.
I took the Bare Republic Natural SPF 30 Mineral Face Sunscreen and SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen. I didn't pack the SPF 30 Body Spray since it was labeled for kids and since it wasn't really a TSA approved sized like the other two.
Bare Republic was made exclusively for Target as one of the first affordable 100% natural and mineral sunscreen collection (everything priced at $14.99.) Between the SPF 50 Sport sunscreen and the SPF 30 Mineral Face sunscreen, I preferred the Sports one. I felt the Face sunscreen was a little bit too oily for me, and would find myself reaching for the Sports one in my beach bag to apply to my face as well. This was my first time experience a natural and mineral sunscreen, and felt it took a little longer to completely rub it into the skin. My mom and sister both were using my sunblock instead of the ones they brought, so overall I would say these two were a hit during our trip!
I love the colorful packaging for this sunscreen and I would definitely buy the Sports SPF 50 sunscreen again! It is water-resistent (for 80 minutes), broad-spectrum and chemical free! I am still on the fence with the Mineral Face sunscreen, but I'll be testing it out throughout the summer to see if I change my mind. As I mentioned before, you can find these sunscreens exclusively at Target in case you are interested in testing these out for when you dare to go bare this summer!
