Best natural sunscreen (including for men with beards!)
I've tried a few different natural sunscreens in my time and have always found you get what you pay for.
This is no exception. It's an excellent sunscreen.
It ticks all the boxes: I'm comfortable with its sustainability and supply chain, it doesn't turn my beard white, it's super easy to apply, it doesn't smell strongly (which is especially important to my fiancée), it doesn't make my face feel like either crusty toast or an oil rag, and it has a long enough expiry date so that people like me who don't apply sunscreen as often as they should won't struggle to use it in time. Plus, although it's relatively expensive, 120g is a fairly decently sized container.
So if you're wondering whether the price is worth it, the answer is yes. Especially if you have a beard!
