    This stuff is amazing. I just ordered my second bottle

    This stuff is amazing. I just ordered my second bottle. It smells incredible and works like a skin treatment. It’s a bit pricey for the size but I compensate for this by using the Goddess Garden facial spf on my neck and saving this one for just my face. I also have a different brand sunscreen (NCN professional) that I wear on alternate days.Like most physical sunscreens, this does leave a white cast and can be difficult to blend. Therefore, I don’t rub this lotion on, and instead I do a “pat pat pat” motion all over my face. The white cast is softer, less chalky, and more “glowy” than most physical sunscreens, so a bit of concealer under the eyes is all it takes to prevent me from looking washed out. The application process takes a tiny bit of practice but I quickly got the hang of it and now I’m obsessed!This product DELIVERS.

  5. CR

    great so far

    wearing for about 9 months now, notice i breakout if i don’t use this for a couple days so i know its working. the zinc is great for acne. never have been sunburnt while wearing. its just enough for daily use, and enough protection for unexpected sun adventures like blueberry picking or a hike. when sweating i don’t feel my eyes burning like most products. will continue to wear

    Very moisturizing. No white cast. Excellent sun protection

    No white castVery moisturizingPeople of color can now chose a Sunscreen that gives excellent UVA ProtectionHowever if you have malasma, hyperpigmentation or frickles that you want to lighting this is not the Sunscreen for you.Chose another ewg.org rated # 1 like Raw Elements with IRON OXIDE.Visit Dr Dray on YouTube our free dermatologist and watch her many explanation on Sunscreen uses.

  7. Night Owl

    Works fine but has perfume

    It seems to perform fine as a moisturizer and sunblock. It feels a bit stick or tacky after application but this seems to be the norm for mineral based moisturizers. I bought this after seeing it reviewed as a safe mineral based product. I dont like the flowery smell. I wish it had a neutral or no smell. It comes in a small pump bottle which I suspect is hard to get out the last bit of product from the bottom.

    Great moisturizer!

    I love this moisturizer! It offers great sun protection. Can be a little hard to rub in somtimes becuase it is mineral based. I have aleady reordered a few times.

  9. Amber Bugg

    Great face sunscreen

    I have been using this about a month and I really like it. I use it under my make up in the morning. I believe it actually has a firming effect which is pretty awesome. I do need to give it a couple minutes to soak in because at first I look really white. I wore it without makeup camping. Great product.

  10. Amazon Customer

    Simple natural daily sunscreen

    Lightweight, little goes long way. Mild scent. Use as daily facial sunscreen. Have darker skin but have not experienced white cast at all, just have to rub in well. Like the brand! not sure it firms

    Love this day cream.

  12. alise

    A little goes a long way, but it’s great.

    Update: purchased this again from another company. I was mistaken. This is actually a very nice primer/moisturizer! Yes, it’s thick, but when you apply it, make certain to start with a small amount, and then massage it into your skin until it’s no longer white. If your skin is dry, try spritzing a little water or a warm cloth first, then continue to apply until you’re done. It’s actually very emollient.

  13. DA

    Goes on smooth, stays on well. Highly recommend this!

    I love this product and I HIGHLY recommend it! As a two time melanoma survivor, sunscreen is a must even on the coolest cloudy days. Face the Day goes on light, almost as a foundation does. While it does leave a slightly white tint because my skin tone is redish, with a little face powder over it, it’s barely noticeable. I feel very protected with this product, while not feeling as though I have an “sport” sunscreen on. It’s much more than your usual “spf 30” face cream which wears off quickly, this is the real stuff. It still feels like a cosmetic and has a very nice LIGHT fragrance. I’ve used many other Goddess Garden products and can wholeheartedly say that I trust them with my life. Because I do!

    I LOVE this product. It makes my skin feel amazing. Ive had several people try it and they have all gone and bought it immediately after. Two of them were having problems with skin irritation for their current spf moisturizers and they had none with this. I will note that this goes on a little more smoothly when used with the serum (any oil would probably work the same though), but overall, I’m so glad I found this product line.

Reef Safe

All Goddess Garden Sunscreens are Reef Safe

Some of the most common chemical sunscreens, oxybenzone and octinoxate, have been linked to the destruction of our coral reefs.

This damage can occur even at very low concentrations of these chemicals in the water.

Because of this, they’ve even been banned in placed like Hawaii, Key West, Bonaire and the Republic of Palau.

Minerals, on the other hand, are reef safe, so do not harm reef environments and the vast life they support.

We never use toxic or harmful chemicals, so all our sunscreens are completely reef-safe! 

Certified Organic

All Goddess Garden ingredients are Certified Organic wherever possible.

Pure minerals offer powerful UV protection, but they can never be considered “organic” ingredients since they’ve never been alive.

This means mineral sunscreens (whether made by Goddess Garden or not) will never be 100% organic.

Leaping Bunny Certified

By 1996, ‘cruelty-free’ shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own bunny logos, abiding by their own definition of ‘cruelty-free’ or ‘animal friendly’ without the participation of animal protection groups.

In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. We work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.

Why We Designed our Daily Facial Routine

To understand why we designed our Daily Facial Routine to address sun damage and other skin aging, it helps to go back to the start of our company. Our founders, Nova and Paul, were inspired to create Goddess Garden because they needed a safe sunscreen made with clean, natural ingredients for their daughter.
They identified a problem and created their own solution.

They learned a lot along the way, including that the sun is responsible for 90 percent of the visible signs of skin aging.
That means if we’d all used sunscreen on our faces every time we were exposed to the sun in our lives, we’d all boast baby faces—but we didn’t.

Here, Nova and Paul saw another problem: How do you undo years of not wearing sunscreen?
True to their innovative spirit, they again went to work on a solution—the Daily Facial Routine.

Repairing Sun Damage Naturally

Repairing sun damage is pretty complicated stuff. That’s because the damage itself is complex as well. It has to do with the different spectrums and wavelengths of the UV rays and how each affects the skin. Mineral sunscreen is the first step to addressing the problem. You have to stop the damage so your skin can begin to heal itself. Goddess Garden has been providing this solution to our customers for years.

Then we decided to take it to the next step: The repair process.

To further complicate the problem, synthetic chemicals are commonly marketed to help people turn back time. Luckily, we geek out on finding natural alternatives. We read about willow bark and baobab oil for fun! We’re like kids in a candy store when it comes to nature. There are so many wonderful ingredients to choose from that won’t cause their own problems later on.

A Plant-Powered Skincare Solution

We looked for ingredients that could restore the things years of sun exposure takes away from our skin. Nature once again provided just what we needed: strong antioxidants, vitamins, moisturizers and ways to deliver nutrients where they’re needed most. We mixed and tested, and even started over when we found ingredients that were higher in antioxidants or provided a better firming effect. We learned and mixed and tested again.

And all that testing and experimenting resulted in eight facial products—all with nutrients you can feel and natural ingredients that really work—to help undo the visible signs of aging!

The Daily Facial Routine

Our morning and evening products make skincare routines a snap, while providing all the complex nutrients your skin needs. Just take a peek at the product line:

Under the Sun Hydrating Vitamin Serum: 

  • Sunscreen primer ensures even distribution of our Face the Day SPF lotion, with a nourishing vitamin complex to help repair sun-related aging and protect skin from daily damage.

Face the Day Daily SPF 30 Moisturizer & Firming Primer: 

  • Completely sheer, lightweight SPF from reef-safe, non-nano zinc protects the skin while chicory root imitates retinol to firm, lift fine lines and promote long-term collagen production. 

Tinted Face the Day Daily SPF 30 Moisturizer & Firming Primer:  

  • An lightweight four-in-one product that protects, moisturizes, primes and offers a subtle tint in four color-adaptive shades that smooth the skin and even complexion.

Evening:

Erase the Day Purifying Clay Cleanser:

  • Kaolin clay pulls away impurities, minerals and makeup to reveal soft, smooth skin as oat protein replaces hydration lost throughout the day. 

Day Undone Softening Night Serum:

  • Powerful after-sun serum uses natural ingredients like nourishing mango butter and pomegranate oil to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots caused by sun exposure. 

Dream Repair Brightening Night Cream:

  • Sunscreen primer ensures even distribution of our Face the Day SPF 30 moisturizer, with a nourishing vitamin complex to help repair sun-related aging and protect skin from daily damage.

Sun Repair Made Simple

That’s it. It’s pretty simple. The Daily Facial Routine protects your skin to halt the damage; it helps your skin help itself while providing an extra boost that delivers instant results with long-term benefits—all with plant-based formulas and gentle ingredients.

So look back with nothing but fondness at every moment you’ve spent on this Earth, even if you forgot the sunscreen a time or twelve. We’re all about simply enjoying life, so we hope sun damage can be one less thing to worry about!
