REN Clean Skincare Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30

When it comes to Sun care I am really picky about which one I will put on my face. I cannot stand that overly thick cream which makes your skin feel as though you have rubbed it into a tub of lard, it just makes me feel as though I constantly need to wash my face.  When this Clean Screen Mineral SPF30 from REN Clean Skincare arrived I was elated because not only do I absolutely adore REN as a brand, but I am yet to find a product I dislike.

With its bright sunshine yellow packaging, it would be hard to miss this product on your shelf and if ever there was a timely reminder that you should be wearing sunscreen every single day, then this is it. The sun is arguably the biggest contributor to skin ageing. UVB rays are mostly responsible for sunburn and redness, while UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin, causing lines and wrinkles. These rays get to your skin even on days when it is cloudy and I have lost count of the number of confused looks I get when I tell people I wear SPF every single day unless of course, I have no plans to leave the house.

So from REN we have a product which is a mattifying face sunscreen and this is what excited me the most because most of the suncare products I have tried leaves the skin with a greasy shiny film. It also has a Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection as well as blue light protection, non-nano technology, it is also vegan and made of over 99% natural ingredients. After 6 years of research into SPF, this sunscreen is silicone free and if you are a fan of REN or know about REN, then one thing they want to do is not only to look after your skin but also our planet too and in previous reviews such as this one, I have detailed how changes have been made to their packaging. For this Sunscreen, REN has used 50% recycled plastic to create the tube - the maximum we can while protecting the formula, and 100% recycled plastic for the cap.

Ingredients are also an important factor for REN and a lot of thought goes into each product. For this one we have:
  • Passion Fruit Extract which a powerful antioxidant and its job is to protect against pollution and potential irritation flare-ups.
  • Rice Extract which not only soothes reddened skin but gives a mattifying finish to combat sun-induced shine and excess oil. It keeps you matte and fresh while creating the perfect base for makeup.
  • Zinc Oxide which is said to be a physical shield that effectively blocks and reflects UVA, UVB, Blue Light rays to prevent ageing and pigmentation.Yellow Passion Fruit Seed Extract for its antioxidant action. Boosts skin's internal defence system to help protect from pollution and free radical damage.
  • Rice Starch which absorbs oil, controls shine and minimises pore appearance. Soothes irritation.

Designed to be the last step of your skincare routine but before makeup, this sunscreen should be massaged onto and into the skin.  What I really like is the texture, it is no thicker than my moisturising cream and it has no horrible chemical smell.

I love that you only need a small amount to cover the entirety of your face and neck and it is so lightweight once it has absorbed, it is easy to forget it is there, whereas some highstreet versions never feel as though they will absorb into the skin and just create a white film on the skin, none of which you get with this.

It has been really easy to add this into my existing skincare routine and it is now a daily part of my life.  It is priced at £30 for 50ml here and if you need a new sunscreen, this is definitely one not to miss.
