What about them? I have Colorescience SPF 50 tinted mineral sunscreen, colour: “FLEX” (it actually turns brown as you rub it before putting it on) in my sunscreen armoury!! 😏 I switch this up with several other really good sunscreens that respect my sensitive skin of colour, and also match the shade of my brown complexion. A painstaking process to come up with several (facial) sunscreens. Also, usually I combine 2-4 of them to get closer to my skin colour! Sunscreen makers are gonna have to come with many more brown shades, the same as they always have done for Caucasian skins.

Are their sunscreens reliable? The ones I searched on this website said they're not.

That’s vague. “Not reliable”? Based on what? (It’s “colorescience,” btw.) I’m reading this label: colorescience sunforgettable total protection “Face Shield FLEX” - SPF 50. Mine is “For tan skin tones.” “Broad Spectrum…”— And it has the “PA++++” rating— with “ALL-MINERAL ACTIVES.” Water and sweat-resistant for 40 minutes.

I blend about 2-3 high-SPF sunscreens, to get the right colour, finish, and enough mineral protection. Thanks.

Have you worn it on a hot day, and does it protect well from the sun? I read that where zinc is the only sunscreen active, the product should contain at least 20% zinc to be reliable, whereas that one only has 12%. On this website if you search the product name it'll say how reliable it is.
