There’s a famous Benjamin Franklin quote that “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”. Well, for me there’s a third thing - sunscreen. Rain or shine, I use it every morning.

SKINFOOD Berry Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA++++ is advertised as a watery, moist formula with non-sticky finish. It’s available on Amazon, Stylevana (discount code INF10KBH), Olive Young (code KBHOBBIT77), and iHerb (code CWN6107).

How to use

  • Apply to exposed areas at the end of your skincare routine (before makeup, if using)

  • Reapply after prolonged sun exposure

Skinfood uses a vegan, cruelty free formula - great! They also market clean ingredients, blue light blocking and other hype. I mention my feelings on these claims often - they are unregulated and therefore meaningless. If you want to read all of these statements, Olive Young has a full breakdown on their product page.

SKINFOOD Berry Moisturizing Sunscreen

Berry sunscreen has a thin, runny texture that feels moisturizing but not heavy. It dries down to a natural finish with no stickiness and no white cast, which makes sense given the chemical filters in the ingredients. I don’t notice a scent during typical daily use.

My impressions

I received this sunscreen as PR, and I’m so glad I did. All the ads about a “moist formula” would have turned me off - I don’t think I would have purchased this for my combination skin. However, since it was gifted with no prior research on my part, I simply went on to try it. And I LOVE IT.

SKINFOOD Berry Moisturizing Sunscreen

If I lived in a sad world where I had to choose just one SPF to use for the rest of my life, Skinfood Berry Sunscreen would be my first choice. It’s simply perfect. Not too dewy and not too matte, not drying and not heavy, 0 white cast or irritation even when used around the eyes. It’s one of the very few sunscreens that I don’t top off with powder to make the finish more matte. It doesn’t smell (unless I hold my hands directly up to my nose, and even then the scent is minimal). What’s not to love? Even the packaging is cute. If I had my way, I’d make the container larger, but of course then it wouldn’t be as portable.

I honestly didn’t expect much from this sunscreen, especially since it’s titled “moisturizing”. I thought that it would likely be too heavy and nourishing for my combination skin, but that’s simply not the case. It’s perfect. My oily t-zone and my dry cheeks are equally happy with this product.

Skinfood Berry Moisturizing Sunscreen would make a perfect “gateway SPF” for people traumatized by foul smelling, greasy, white cast Western formulas. It’s sunscreen for people who cannot stand sunscreen. 10 out of 10 and absolutely worth a try!
