Palmer’s Eventone Suncare Moisturizing Sunscreen 30 SPF
The Palmer’s brand has been a mainstay in the black beauty community since its inception. Palmer’s cocoa butter has been a staple for black skin for ages, but many do not realize the quality products available in their other lines! This drugstore gem is shea and cocoa butter based moisturizer that gives broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.
It glides on smoothly and performs just as well as conventional moisturizing lotions while providing 80 minutes of high protection in and out of the water. The cocoa butter extracts help to prevent and even dark spots and hyperpigmentation on the skin as well as contributing to the delicious scent it leaves after applying.

Moroccanoil Sun Lotion SPF 50
Avid fans of argan oil will love this sunscreen! This lotion is water-based and uses a mixture of coconut and argan oils to provide softening and nourishing benefits to the skin. It applies very lightly which differs from other similar skin lotions but allows layering on top of other favorite body lotions and sun oils. The lotion is free of mineral oil which is perfect for those of us with sensitive skin or clogged pores, and the lack of heavy mineral sun protectants keeps the Casper cast at bay. Moroccanoil products can be found on their website or at a beauty supply store near you!
Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid
The Clinique Broad Spectrum Mineral Sunscreen Fluid is one of the few wholly mineral based lotions included in this list because of how difficult it is to blend mineral sunscreens on darker skin. This lotion is a liquid consistency with the protection of a heavier traditional sun cream. The thicker mineral base makes it a better option for people with normal or dry skin; however, oily skin types will find joy in using it in light amounts. Despite its heaviness, the fluid blends easily and dries completely transparent with fast absorption and no sticky finish. Clinique has created a non-comedogenic formula that is ideal for acne prone skin and decreases the number of breakouts experienced when layering with other makeup and products.
