Your New Clean Facial Suncream? Kri SPF30 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Review

Kri SPF30 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Review

Why You Should Choose Reef-Safe Mineral Sunscreen

There are two types of sunscreen and one is better for you, and for the planet. Mineral sunscreens are known as physical sunscreens as they act as a physical barrier to reflect the sun’s harmful rays away from your skin. Instead of getting absorbed into your skin, the sit on it, making reapplying important. Conversely, chemical sunscreens absorb UV light before it reaches your skin, using synthetic blends, some of which have been shown to damage coral reefs.

How Do I Know If A Sunscreen is Reef Safe?

There isn’t a globally recognised scheme for reef safe products and some companies can sneakily claim this, even if they contain ingredients that may damage sea life. So the sunscreen ingredients to avoid are:

  • Oxybenzone (Benzophenone-3)
  • Benzophenone-1
  • Benzophenone-8
  • Octinoxate
  • Octocrylene
  • 3-Benzylidene camphor
  • 4-methylbenzylidene camphor
  • OD-PABA

So now you know why buying reef safe suncare is important, I’ll move on to sharing my review of Kri SPF30 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen. Kri say:

How Does Kri SPF30 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Look?

I’ve taken some photos to show how the tinted sunscreen looks on my pale, white skin. It looks beige in the pot, but slightly pink-toned when it goes on. However it seems to magically dissolve to invisibility when blended in. It’s fairly thick, but doesn’t feel greasy.

How Does Kri SPF30 Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Look Under Make-up?

I took some photos of me using the sunscreen beneath my make-up at the start of the day and end of the day, and as you can see, my make-up stayed in place well, and didn’t slide off or go horrid and greasy.

About Kri

Now you know why I love this clean tinted sunscreen, I’ll share some information about the brand, Kri. They are a certified B Corporation, which is a global movement of companies using business as a force for good. Their products are all 100% vegan and cruelty free and made in the UK. They are EcoCert and COSMOS certified and use organic ingredients when they can. Products arrive in recyclable and reusable glass jars, and delivery packaging is reusable, recyclable or biodegradable (they use the corn beads that dissolve in water — my kids love doing that!) Kri also donate to World Land Trust to help restore forest habitats. So that’s a good line up of eco and ethical credentials in my opinion.
