Hey bestie, it’s your Internet BFF, Kaylannk here! Let’s talk sunscreen. Sunscreen is important. Sunscreen can help prevent skin cancer and improve hyperpigmentation. 

Although I understand the importance of sunscreen it can be hard to find one formulated for Black skin. Oftentimes sunscreens leave a white cast on Black skin. (A white cast is a layer of the sunscreen that doesn’t dissolve into the skin leaving the skin to appear white). 


Using sunscreen that leaves a white cast is not ideal and it’s one of the reasons I dislike using sunscreen. The second reason I dislike using sunscreen is because it often smells like chlorine. I dislike those two things about sunscreen, so I created a YouTube shorts series where I try different sunscreens to see how it works on my skin.

The first sunscreen I’ve tried for this series is Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Sunscreen. The sunscreen is an orange color like the packaging of the product. The sunscreen has an oily consistency. You can see the product separate as you apply it to your fingertips for application. I, even, shook the product to stop it from separating and it was still oily. Upon application, the product melted into my skin. The sunscreen did not leave a white cast. The application of the sunscreen looked oily and gave me a dewy finish. 

I recommend Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Sunscreen for Black people that like dewy skin.

Written with lots of care, 



Your Internet BFF
