Biossance | Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30: Review
I'm always excited when my favorite skincare brands release a sunscreen although the last time that happened, it was a bit of a disaster. Nevertheless, I was still pretty ecstatic to learn Biossance offers a physical sunscreen made with 100 percent non-nano zinc. With a hydrating, sheer formulation, the Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA+++ (C$40 for 50 ml) promises to leave no white cast.

Packaged in a simple squeeze tube and a screw cap, the Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen is formulated with sun-protective zinc oxide, calming water lily extract, and moisturizing sugarcane-derived squalane. With no discernable fragrance, the sunscreen is formulated without drying alcohols or icky silicones. The sunscreen has a lightweight cream texture; it appears pretty white when first squeezed out of the tube and although it takes a bit of effort to fully blend out, there is no white cast left behind (at least on my skin tone). The dewy finish is slick to the touch but as compared to other mineral sunscreens I've tried in the past, the Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen is actually not too greasy. However, the formulation is too dewy for me to wear with makeup but on no-makeup days, it performs very well with zero pilling (a huge issue I often experience with mineral sunscreens)! So all in all, this is actually one of the best mineral sunscreens I've tried to date, and the fact that it's readily available via Sephora is a big plus as well. If you are looking for a clean sunscreen that doesn't pill, leave a noticeable white cast, or make your skin look greasy and shiny, the Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen is the way to go!
