Fenty Skin's Hydra Vizor Sunscreen Melted Right Into My Dark Skin, Even in Flash Photos
As someone blessed by melanin, I've often felt cursed by sunscreen. I know it's important to always wear it . . . but the icky white cast it leaves on my skin doesn't leave me with a warm, fuzzy feeling. Even when I think I've found "the one," I step out in the sun, or see myself in a photo, and realise I've been ghosted.
I'd actually given up on falling for a stand-alone sunscreen product for my darker skin, instead opting for BB creams with sun protection wrapped inside. But everything changed when I heard Rihanna was introducing a moisturiser sunscreen as part of her brand-new skin-care line. Surely, she'd also been ghosted this way in the past, so I was cautiously optimistic she could tackle this problem as a Black woman who also happens to be a beauty founder.
Did I find love in this hopeless place? You bet I did. See how the Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen looks in both natural and flash photos ahead, and judge my happily ever after for yourself.
