LASPA Sunscreen Review

I’m so excited to write about LaSPA sunscreens, first off as they are a Canadian brand and I love to support any Canadian brands out there! Plus their sunscreens are all natural, which is something that is also important to me. Its hard to find Natural Products, that work, so I was very excited to give these sunscreens a good!

A little bit about LASPA Sunscreens…

“Our Philosophy is simple. Create clean and natural sun care products with only the finest ingredients. LASPA products are a safe and effective way for women to nourish and protect their skin from the harmful rays of the sun – without the risks that are associated with chemical based sunscreen products.” Susan Mey founder

LASPA Daily Sun Protection SPF 30- Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen

IMG_7452

This sunscreen easily glides from the tube and blends into the skin very well.  I have always been someone who is a bit scared with using certain sunscreens on my face, as my skin is very sensitive and acne prone. However, I haven’t had any problems with using this sunscreen this far. Which is a huge plus! I can confidently say this sunscreen is,  hands down one of the best face sunscreen I have ever tried. This product totally blew me away and that says a lot since face sunscreens have always been more misses than hits for me. Especially, as I’m someone who is also very pale and tend to burn very easily.

Ingredients:

Each Dose Contains Zinc Oxide 20%

NON-MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS: beeswax, bisabolol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax, isoamyl cocoate, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, tocopherols

Pros:

  • CRUELTY-FREE 🐰 (It’s NOT Vegan because of the beeswax),
  • Fragrance-free, Gluten-free & hypoallergenic,
  • Hydrating – perfect for dry skin,
  • Contains no color, no paraben or chemical UVA\UVB,
  •  Non-greasy* & non-stiky formula,
  • 100% Natural Source Ingredients,
  • Makes the PERFECT canvas to use under foundations or BB creams,
  • No white cast (YAY!!!!!),
  • Doesn’t break me out at all,
  • This product is sweat and water-resistant for 80 minutes,

Cons:

  • For some reason, it doesn’t work great with loose powder foundation. The foundation looks patchy!
  • I don’t think oily girls would enjoy this VERY hydrating sunscreen.

When you first open the tube, you see a thick cream and a formula that is a little bit “grainy”; don’t be afraid as the product will melt onto your skin. All of us know that finding a sunscreen that doesn’t mess up our makeup is very difficult – this one is so good, I haven’t looked greasy when using it and I also found it acts like a primer, which was so weird to me, as most sunscreens I use do the complete opposite!

Ingredients:

Each Dose Contains Zinc Oxide 14%

NON-MEDICINAL INGREDIENTS: beeswax, bisabolol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, certified organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax, isoamyl cocoate, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, tocopherols

Pros:

  • CRUELTY-FREE 🐰 (It’s NOT Vegan because of the beeswax)
  • 100% Natural Source Ingredients,
  • Fragrance-free, Gluten-free & hypoallergenic,
  • Contains no color, no paraben or chemical UVA\UVB,
  • Non-stiky light formula,
  • Doesn’t stain my clothes,
  • This product is sweat and water-resistant for 80 minutes.

Cons:

  • It takes some time to dry,
  • I wish this sunscreen contained a higher SPF, as I’m someone who is so pale and burn very easily. Lucky me…

Comparing both products, I prefer LaSpa SPF 30 Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen, however, I  usually put SPF 50 on my face. That being said, I’ve used this LaSpa SPF 20 Daily Sun Protection Lotion on my neck and neckline for a while now and I do love it a lot, these areas are easier to reapply than redo your full makeup.

I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to test out and review these products! From the lovely LaSPA and PK Communications, sent to me! So thank you very much for this amazing opportunity! After testing the sunscreens out regularly the past few weeks, I was pretty excited to share my thoughts. I truly cannot say enough good things on these products!

I will definitely be using these sunscreens all Summer long as they worked really well with my skin. What’s not to love: great value, natural ingredients, made in Canada, cruelty-free & works like a charm under makeup! It’s truly one of the best sunscreen product I’ve used and I’m a LaSpa convert, especially LaSpa SPF30 Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen, since I prefer better protection and SPF factors.

The key difference between this sunscreen and the Daily Sun Protection is the higher percentage of Zinc Oxide. As it has a higher concentration of Zinc Oxide it is also a slightly thicker formula.

As with the SPF 20 formula this does not have any fragrance. Which I actually quite enjoy, cause I’m not a fan of the feeling you get walking around smelling like sunscreen and also feeling greasy all day, who else hates that!?

The Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen works just as well as the Daily Sun Protection. You can just expect a little bit more sun protection!

Overall I am very pleased with the LASPA Natural Sunscreens and they are a welcome addition to my sun protection arsenal! I mean, the only important job a sunscreen has is protecting you from a sunburn but the LASPA Natural Sunscreen also gives your skin a healthy dose of moisture.
