MDSolarSciences, Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50
This silky-smooth crème sunscreen provides physical UV protection that’s safe for everyone—even sensitive skin types and kids as young as 6 months. Non-irritating and oil-free, this matte formula is best worn daily and doubles as a makeup primer. Best of all, it won’t clog pores or leave the white cast that’s typical of most other mineral formulations.
This luxurious SPF doesn’t just defend against photo aging—it’s also packed with antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate extract, cranberry fruit extract, and green tea, which work together to boost radiance, improve the skin tone, firm skin, and defense against free radical damage.

TL,DR: This sunscreen is awesome, and Kura is awesome. Sunscreen: I'm fairly light complected, but on me there is no trace of white cast AT ALL. It goes on like butter. It's silicone-based, so it definitely feels slippery at first, but it isn't really an oily feeling. It takes a little bit of time before it dries down and the silicone slip goes away, but once it does I can't feel any residue and it has never offered to pill. You do have to shake it up! I forgot one morning, and it had separated. No worries though, that's just how mineral sunscreens are. I was skeptical at first about the silicone base for my skin, but I've been using it for two weeks now and my mild rosacea / combination skin is happy. Kura: What better way to let people try out their service than free, no-obligation recommendations? I discussed some personal experience in the form's comments box, and Kat send me a recommendation the same day that responded directly to my concerns. I had a bit of trouble with my password (due to my own user error), contacted their generic contact email, and Kat worked with me to figure it out. I ordered my sunscreen and it came in quickly with a handwritten note (not handwriting font) about how to use it, that also referenced my previous communications with Kura, and it was signed [ <3 Kat, founder]. If that doesn't make you feel personally taken care of, I don't know what does. Either all their employees sign their emails "Kat" or Kura's founder was the one helping me the whole time. I haven't ordered a full curation yet, but the only thing I'm waiting for is to use up some of my existing products. Kura for the win!
