bare republic sunscreen review

‘Tis the season… for sunscreen! Recently Bare Republic (a California based brand that creates clean and safe products) sent us their whole line of products to try out and review for you guys. Each of their lotions are Mineral sunscreens with no chemical sunscreen actives. They’re also reef friendly, gluten free, vegan, non-gmo, cruelty free and recyclable! Some of the products in their line seemed really innovative and impossible to pass up which got us super excited! You can buy most of their products at Target, Ulta and Walmart as well as Amazon.

Bare Republic SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Face
bare republic face sunscreen review

$11.70

The first product in this line is the sunscreen lotion for face. This cream is a broad spectrum SPF 30 that is water resistant up to 40 minutes and doesn’t include any chemical sunscreen actives. Once you open this product it has a shelf life of 12 months and each tube contains 1.7 ounces of product. This does have a “matte” finish, personally we love how lightweight it is but the most interesting thing about this product as a sunscreen is that it’s a cream to powder. This would be excellent for the folks out there with oily skin. This bottle is TSA approved and the formulation contains no parabens, preservatives, retinyl palmitate or synthetic fragrances (which is so important when it comes to your face skin).

Recommend?

Definitely. This is a nice product and we think this will be particularly great for people who fare towards oilier skin.

 

Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen Spray in Citrus Cooler

$10.17

Next is a spray sunscreen great for the days when you are on the go. This product is also SPF30 and sprays on a sheer and light coating of this great smelling spray. Each bottle contains 6 ounces. The scent is very light, so if scents kind of turn you off you’ll still probably like this. We love that this gives your skin a really cooled down feeling… perfect for hot summer days! Reapply every EIGHTY minutes of swimming or sweating and after toweling off.

Recommend?

Yes! Not only is this product convenient we love the spray factor… it makes application quick and easy … especially on wiggly little kiddos!

 

Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen Shimmer Stick

$7.65

One of our favorite products in this line are these shimmer sticks. We received both the Golden Daze and the Diamond Dust colors. The Diamond Dust is considered a “holographic” shade while the Golden Daze is more for shimmer. They do also have a Rose Gold Shimmer Stick. Both sticks are SPF50 and are water resistant up to 80 minutes. Both contains sustainable Mica which gives these sticks their glow.

Each stick contains .3 ounces of product (a little goes a long way). This is the Golden Daze color. We think it applies just the right amount of glow!

Here is Diamond dust. This goes on a lot brighter than the gold and is great if you want to achieve a blinding, frosty glow! Both are very pretty!

Zinc Oxide (sunscreen)

(ingredients vary for each product)

Recommend?

Yes! If you want to look good this is the product for you. If you are looking for a simpler product we’d say go with their sport sunscreen (keep reading for that one).

 

Bare Republic Diamond Dust Mineral Sunscreen Lotion

$14.99

Our absolute favorite item in this line is this holographic shimmer sunscreen lotion. It’s also a little bit pricey compared to the other products but we assure you this worth the spend. This tube has 3.4 ounces of product and has an SPF of 30. This cream is great up to 40 minutes of sweating or swimming. We really enjoy the beach-y coconut-y scent of this one.

This has the very traditional sunscreen properties. It’s a little thin and leaves a white residue for a few moments after application.

After that you’ll have a beautiful glitter finish. It’s not so bright that you can see yourself from space but it’s noticeable and quite beautiful!

For sure. This glitter won’t be fore everyone but we love it! If you want to add a bit of sparkle to make you stand out this is one you won’t want to miss!

 

Bare Republic Mineral Sunscreen Lotion Sport

$9.89

The final item in our review is the Bare Republic Sport Mineral Sunscreen. This tube contains 5 ounces of product and has an SPF of 50. This is great for 80 minutes of active time and we LOVE the coconut vanilla scent. This is a great everyday sunscreen (and great for men as well). This is good for 12 months after the day it’s opened.
