BECCA Mineral Face & Body Sunscreen SPF30+



Hi gorgeous Divas!

I hope you had an amazing weekend and are ready to take on the week. In this blog post I will be doing my first product review for the year. Since it has been very hot in South Africa these past few months I thought I would do a review on a new Sunscreen I recently came across. The Becca Mineral Face and Body Sunscreen in SPF30+ greatly surprised me as I had no idea that Becca was into the zone of skincare. They are most known for their stunning makeup products such as the famous powder highlighters and liquid illuminators. So when I got my hands on this gem I was extremely delighted to try it out. It is always very hard to find sunscreens that work both well for the face and the body. While most sunscreens may work well on the body can make the face very oily, shiny and ghostly white looking. Try putting a hint of makeup on all that mess and you will get disastrous results. This sunscreen promises to protect the face and body from sun exposure and is suitable to wear under makeup and use on sensitive skin.


The product comes packaged in a beautiful 75ml teal blue tube with a screw on silver cap. The sunscreen is easy to squeeze out and has a creamy texture. It blends comfortably into the skin and a little goes a long way. It leaves the skin with a slight healthy shine. The finish is smooth and subtle with no oily residue. It looks like you applied normal lotion on the body. When applied on the face the cream dries to a semi matte finish. There is no grease or streaky white residue on the face. Foundations and eye products apply effortlessly over it. I like the overall feeling of the sunscreen. It does not feel heavy, sticky or slimy. This cream will not rub off on your clothes or cause streaks. The product does come off in water though so it is best to use a water resistant sunscreen instead of this one if you are going swimming. The only con I have about this product is that the SPF is only 30+. As you know in South Africa if you are going to be spending your days lounging around on the beach all day in the sun then sadly this SPF will not be sufficient for you. I think this product is great for a everyday sunscreen if you are going walking or having a braai (barbecue) out in the sun.

What I enjoy most about this sunscreen is that it is a non-nano zinc-oxide based product. Many sunscreens on the market contain nano zinc-oxide which contains harmful nono particles that once absorbed into the bloodstream can cause high blood pressure and contribute to cancer. Therefore it is very important to read the ingredient list when buying skincare products that especially contain SPF. The scent of the cream is quite pleasant too. It has a subtle sunscreen smell with a hint of sweetness to it. The sunscreen smells feminine and light. I doubt that it would interfere with your perfumes and body spritzers chemistry when mixed together on your body. To conclude this post I really enjoyed this sunscreen and recommend it if you are looking for a everyday product to wear out in the sun. You can find more information on the product and where to buy it on the Becca South Africa website here.



Thank you so much for reading.
Hope you found this review helpful
Much love. Xxx

That is always the number one question! Will it conflict with my makeup! So glad, this doesn't. Sounds great and the protection is wonderful. Plus I love the packaging.

Not just lounging out in the sun... I spend my days mostly indoors, and I still use SPF50. Lately I noticed my neck area which I've not been diligent about applying sunscreen, but relied on high SPF in my moisturizer, is looking terribly wrinkled compared to my face!!! So now i'm all about slathering it on! ;P

Hi Linda, I agree with you. It is important to always wear sunscreen and prevent those wrinkles creeping up. :-)
