Overall I’m pleased with this product. One of my biggest concerns always with sunscreen is getting either an allergic reaction or a white cast effect on my already pigmented skin but there no indication of it with this. Overall the time of use with this was great! My skin is improving with each application day and night. My skin doesn’t feel dry or break out. No need to use more than a dime size to quarter amount. Give it a try!
I absolutely love this sunscreen! NO white cast, which would be reason enough to sing its praises, but it's also super gentle <3 My skin was getting really dry from the Tretinoin my derm prescribes and sunscreens like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield I tried using made my face burn from the added fragrance. Not this sunscreen. It's also super light and nice and spreadable. I would definitely buy again :-)
Love this sunscreen! Lightweight with no white residue. Perfect!!
This sunscreen feels great! I used it for the first time yesterday while at Golden Gate Park. It feels light and doesn't leave you looking grey/ashy
Thank you for an amazing, necessary product. I no longer have to worry about leaving white residue on my clothing, furniture, or car interior. Ever try to remove that stuff from black cloth seats in your car? How about the armrest? Added bonus: effective sunblock that doesn't smell bad, and feels fantastic on your (not purple-tinged)skin.
Wonderful Sunscreen. Feels great on the skin. No residue or white sticky layer after getting wet. Also light and easy to apply. This will be my only skin protection from now on. Thanks for this excellent product.
I really enjoy using this product. The scent is mild and pleasant, unlike most sunscreens that I dreaded using. It goes on smoothly also and does not leave a film. I am happy that this was made to protect skin like mine!
❤It's a really good product. I'm so happy that it doesn't have a white cast after application like most sunscreen. It also nice that it can be used for the face and body.❤
It is my first time buying the sunscreen and I love it. I love how it is light when putting on my body and there is no white residue at all. I will be buying more!
This sunscreen feels wonderful going on, absorbs easily and doesn't feel heavy or greasy. I bought the kid's version for my teen and she loves it too.
Smooth, creamy and lovely!
Barely felt like I was wearing it! Am loving it.
Took a long time to receive but I love it!
I really like this sunscreen. It's not thick and chalky like others. It goes on smooth like lotion without a white cast. A little goes a long way. It's also very moisturizing.
Love it!! It's light and airy; no thick white stuff on the face. And I believe it works (was in the sun for 2-3 hrs and felt no effect from the sun). My sister also tried it and was very pleased. Awesome; will buy again.
I love that I will never have to worry about that weird lavender streaks on my face. I recommended this product to all of my melanin rich friends. It blends in so easily that I don't even think of it as a sunscreen but rather a moisturizer with extra benefits.
I discovered Black Girl Sunscreen in 2018. Now, it’s the only sunscreen that this Melanin Poppin Girl will use. It’s light, not too greasy, has a nice fragrance and quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving film or a sticky residue. I promise you that once you go Black you will never go back!
Great size and no white cast! I just moved to Texas and the sun here is DIFFERENT for sure and this sunscreen gives great protection
I was worried this sunscreen would be too moisturizing for my sometimes oily skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy! Just gives glow and no white cast. I would still love if BGS came out with an oily skin version for especially hot, humid days. The best part though is how much product you get! Normally cosmetically elegant sunscreens come in tiny tubes, love that this one doesn’t.
I've tried a lot of sun screens over the years and they always break me out so that was the first plus about the sunscreen it did not break me out and did not leave me looking like I dusted chalk for my skin and the scent is good.
I love how this sunscreen goes on without the "ghostly" looking white cast over my dark skin!
I love this sunscreen! I love that it is not oily and does not leave a gross residue on your face once applied. I worry about breaking out from sunscreens, but I don't with this product! I apply it last before I put on my makeup. It works well under makeup too. Otherwise, after my morning skincare routine, this is the perfect product to finish with. I highly recommend and will continue buying!
Love this sunscreen. Smells good and feels great.
I love the way it smells and the way it goes on the skin. However I can only use this on my body. I’ve used it twice on my face and my cheeks have developed hives. Such a bummer. I do use it on my daughter though and her skin hasn’t had any problems with it.
I've been needing a great sunscreen to keep my skin from peeling. Most dry me out. Love this it's for us by us and my skin feels amazing.
I have sensitive skin and let me tell you: this sunscreen right hereeee!!!!❤❤ no breakouts, no irritation. It absorbs into my skin like melted butter. not greasy, not too thick and suuuuuper moisturizing. I only use it on my face though. I wish they sold bigger sizes.Great buy.
I've reordered this product at least three times in the last two years. There is no other sunscreen that I use! Never burns my eyes when I use it on my face--definite plus! I just wish they told a larger tube.
I love there’s no ashy looking residue on my face
Rubs in well. Don’t look oily or purple after application! Doesn’t flake up. Doesn’t break me out. All and all provides GREAT coverage!
This is just what I needed! I wanted a clean sunscreen without a white cast that doesn't feel weird and oily! This is just that! I love that the sunscreen is also all-in-one. Good for Face and body so I don't have to have four different sunscreens in my bag! This feels weightless under my makeup too.
stays on doesn’t look ashy It matches my skin I love it
This is a great product, with a smooth finish!
Black Girl Sunscreen feels wonderful on my face! It doesn't feel greasy or oily and there's no purple cast. Love this product!
Great great custumer service EXECELLENT product. No residu just Nice and protection !!! Thanks you.
I haven’t had much of a chance to use it much but for the few times I have used it, I like how it looks on my face. It doesn’t leave that purplish cast and blends in very good. More to come on more use.
BUY IT! No white cast. No fragrance. Doubles as a moisturizer . It’s perfection in a bottle. Sunscreen was like perfume to me. I never wore it because I could never find the right one. Until now...worth every penny!
use this all the time. i love it! it doesnt have a heavy smell or feel, very moisturizing.
Honestly, the first time I used the product I didn’t like it. But when I used it the second time, I realized how good it was for my skin. Foremost there was no white cast, and my makeup over it quite frankly looked perfect. Ladies of color, there’s no other product on the market you can use that’s better than this. Thank you.
I was using this for a while before it got to be too moisturizing for my face. I gifted the remainder to my dryer-skinned mother and it has been a dream for her.
As an avid beach lover, I wanted to find something that protected against UVB and UVA light. Both wavelengths have a large effect on both the top layer of skin and deeper. I finally feel like I have found a product which protects against both but also leaves no whitecast! This producted has been formulated with black women in mind! Moreover, this product has a pleasant smell and doesn’t leave your skin irritated. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to add sunscreen to their care routine and/or is outdoors often.
I'm soooo happy i made this purchase! I currently live in Thailand where it feels like you're living right under the sun all year long. while i was home for a bit, i made sure to buy this before returning and i couldn't be happier. there's no white residue, it doesn't irritate my skin (like most SPFs do), and i also keeps my skin from getting burned. its perfect.
I love this as a moisturizer and primer for my face. Not a lot of products have SPF and are great for the environment, so I really appreciate it
No white/faded look, when you don't put on too much on your face at once
This is the best sunscreen I’ve ever used . I have light skin while my daughters skin complexion is darker , we have always struggled with finding a sunscreen that works for us . I’m happy I found black girl sunscreen it’s changes our lives well our skin .
I’m usually allergic to sunscreen but this one has been amazing for my skin and the smell doesn’t stay for long.
Black Girl Sunscreen is the best. Truly made to protect my our beautiful melinated skin. I use this product with my daily skin care routine and it leaves my skin soft and ready for the sun. Thank you Black Girl Sunscreen!
It leaves a glow on your skin that is fantastic for dry skin days. It doesn’t clog my pores and as they said, NO WHITE CAST! It’s amazing and you should try it for both face and body.

I have uneven skin due to acne scars so sunscreen is a must. If your not using sunscreen, no corrective product will work. Like most people, I hate the white film it can leave on skin. This is the first sunscreen that absorbed without leaving the white blue tent. It’s a most have for my poc! Got mine at target. Highly recommend
This sunscreen is very hydrating and it leaves my face with a great glow. Easy to put on and it doesn't have any white or orange residue after using.
Very good,so happy no breakouts just perfect for my skin type!
Black Girl Sunscreen works well for my body. It doesn't clog my pores; it's not greasy, and it doesn't leave a white cast on my body. I use only for my body, not my face.
I really love it. Thank you so much.
Feels as smooth as a moisturizer ☺️. Love it!
The sunscreen was light and easy to apply . Plus, there was no white residue after application. It's a winner!
For the first time I have confidence in a sunscreen made for me. I love that not only is it super translucent, but that it is moisturizing. I recently used it while on vacay and it was super clutch. My husband even used it a bit too. Definitely will be reordering. — I need to have a bottle on deck at all times!
Goes on smooth without streaking and doesn't smell odd.
The sunscreen rubs right in and my skin looks radiant! Have taken it on trips throughout the globe and it never fails me
Absolutely the best sunscreen. It went on smooth. No streaks, no residue, no turning my beautiful daughter's skin purple. I am in love with this! I will continue to purchase. I love BLK+GRN
Overall, I think this is a good product! I love that it doesn't leave a white or purple cast on my brown skin. My only issue is the consistency; it's a little thick for my liking and it left my skin a little too shiny. That being said, I think a little can go a long way (which is actually a positive). However, as far as consistency, this is just a personal preference and doesn't make the product unusable. I still plan to use it until it runs out, and at that point I'll decide if I want to buy again.
I am liking this sunscreen! It doesn’t leave my skin stick and tacky, nor does it leave a white cast. It actually gives me a slight glow. A little goes a long way with this product as well.
This sunscreen has to be the most skin nourishing, moisturizing sunscreen I’ve tried. Totally worth the price.
I use this most data and I like the way it feels on my face. No ashy white look and blends in well.
I wanted a good sunscreen for me and the family here in Arizona. I love how it's no harsh smell and it doesn't leave a white film. I will continue to buy and recommend to family and friends.
I absolutely love Black Girl Sunscreen !!! My skin was so moisturized with no weird smell, no streaks or iridescent color, and most importantly no sunburn !!! Definitely met my expectations! I’ve told all of my friends to purchase and try it!
It's absolute treasure using this product. Just the right oil balance. No white residue.. I will give it a Tony the Tiger rating ITS GREAT!
This sunscreen applied smoothly on top of my moisturizer. It wasn't greasy or heavy like some other sunscreens that clog pores. It truly is transparent once rubbed in and even adds a slight shine.
This sunscreen is amazing! It goes on smooth, moisturizes my skin, and does not leave that white, film-like residue that most sunscreens leave behind. I’ve put my girlfriends on and they love it to. Go, Black Girls!
This product is amazing!! I love how it protects AND moisturizes my skin. I have tried two facial product lines from this site and this product works well with both. I am trying different products to see what my skin likes the most, but now this is certainly a permanent part of my routine.
I love that it’s not greasy, doesn’t have a strong smell and makes my skin feel so amazingly soft.
I love this sunscreen so much! it really is sheer and very moisturizing without being greasy. Before I run out, I will definitely be purchasing more and am happy to give my money to Black businesses. <3
Finally a sunscreen that moisturizes and protects my chocolate-y complexion without leaving it foggy. I use this as a daily spf, and it does not irritate my sensitive skin.
I was thrilled when I researched this product and was head over heels once I purchased the product. When it arrived I immediately opened the package and there it was, a beautifully written thank you letter and more info about the product. I applied the product a few days later because this New England weather is unpredictable. When I did use the product it was so smooth on my skin and like the ingredients said it does not turn white. True to their word. I am so happy to be spending my coins on something that works and helping the environment while nourishing our bodies.
It wasn’t super thick and heavy but it was still moisturizing and left no white film. It also didn’t break my sensitive skin out. And!!! It still smells like sunscreen, which is honestly one of my favorite smells cause it reminds me of summer. Definitely buying again when this tube runs out. I take it out of my bag and show it to all my girlfriends, who of course wanna purchase now too lol.
BEAUTIFUL! No white residual sheen on my skin. The feel was smooth & silky. Just the right amount oil for OUR skin. Thank you so much for inventing this fine product. For us just us! FUJU Love

Why has it taken me this long to find such a great sunscreen? All other sunscreens end up feeling squeaky or chalky on the skin and leave a haze. This one feels like moisturizer, has a nice light smell, feels like I always wanted sunscreen to feel.
I’ve spent so much money testing out sunscreens — from drug store to specialty brands. BGS is by far the best product on the market for brown skin. It’s fragrance free (because who wants to smell like the beach), it goes on smooth (no weird gunky or thick formula) and it does NOT leave a trace (no ash!) This is my favorite new beauty product. I’m making it a staple.
Goes on smoothly, moisturizes for hours. Love it. My favorite new sunscreen.
I SAY YEEEESSS to BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN. It was a pleasant feeling applying on my skin and a great scent. I DID NOT burn in the Arizona sun. I’m fair and most sunscreens I still manage to burn. THIS.. will be my new sunscreen for life!!! Thank you BLK+GRN.. you made a great choice by choosing this BLKARTISAN in your Marketplace
This sunscreen goes on quite nicely! Lightweight, moisturizing and NO white, ashy caste ! I use it alone before heading to the gym and under makeup for daily use.
I really like this product. It leaves no white cast and absorbs quickly. It feels very moisturizing as well. Highly recommended.
I couldn’t be happier or say enough about BGS. It lived up the no white residue hype and I love it. I took it with me to Mexico and used it as my sunscreen/lotion. And it’s great that i can use it on my face too. Since I’ve been back from vacation I still use it on my face as a moisturizer/sunscreen in these DC streets lol. It’s kind of dense but absorbs very well and doesn’t make you feel like you still have a bunch of product on your face. I’m definitely sold and will be ordering more.
I am an avid sunblock user and I have struggled to find a product that didn’t make me look ashen. Black Girl Sunscreen keeps me well protected AND moisturized without leaving a greasy film or white finish. I love this product and will be buying more very soon!
It was good wasn’t thick on my skin like other sunscreens. I would buy it again.
I understand the importance of protecting my skin from harmful UV rays, so imagine my delight when I saw this product inside of a giveaway back from an all Black Mother's Conference that I attended. I have been using the product for a few days and I'm so thankful for the lightweight, non-greasy feel. But I'm even happier about the fact that this sunscreen does not leave ANY white residue on my skin. I just love this and it encourages me to keep putting on this product daily. I can't wait to order some after I run out... but that may be a while because a little goes a long way! Thanks for an awesome product!
I found this product online searching for Black Owned Businesses. My frustration was that everything in store didn't quite fit my skin. I can't believe how wonderful this is! Lightweight, not greasy, no ashy residue left behind on my skin. It also applies really well without having to dump the entire bottle! I will definitely order additional product!
So far my 12 year old granddaughter is very happy with your product. She uses it primarily on her face and it leaves a smooth and even appearance. Most other products leave a white residue but Black Girl Sunscreen makes her face glow. This is from a swimmer in the water 4-5 times a week.
I love that it feels light and doesn’t make me ashy looking with that white overcast a lot of sunscreens cause.
This sunscreen is not heavy, didn't give me acne and didn't leave that white residue on my face and neck. There is no smell to aggravate my allergies and I needed only a small amount for coverage. I used it a full week and no burning or discoloration from the sun. I use sunscreen to protect because I am outdoors most of the day.
I have only used it a couple of times, but i like the way it gives my skin a glow.
I love this sunscreen! I’ve always struggled with being consistent in applying sunscreen because I hate that weird purplish sheen. This is the first sunscreen I’ve ever used with no purple sheen! It isn’t sticky either and it adds an extra layer of moisture to my skin. I’m so glad I bought this and I’ve been telling my friends to try it too.
I love this item and am a repeat buyer directly form the seller; however, I chose to buy BGS through BLK+GRN to support this black-owned platform. :)
I like it! It’s not too heavy but a little goes a long way
This is an excellent product!
I tried this on a whim and I'm really enjoying it! I'm black and it doesn't leave any white cast on my skin at all. Feels light and breathable on my face, and other areas as well.
This product is awesome! I went from a ghost to a black girl again because of this product. It’s a great moisturizer and it protects my skin.
Exactly as advertised: lightweight, no residue. The shipping was also super quick. I’ve already recommended it to others.
I purchased this at the recommendation of another company, and so glad I did! In the past, my face would break out if I tried to use sunscreen on it - but this is light and barely there. It does not feel overly greasy to me and a little goes a long way. I plan on buying for my sisters and my mom.
When I made the initial order, 2 of the products did not come. I emailed the company. I gave the order information and they delivered the 2 items in a very timely manner. I like the sunscreen. I tried it simply because of the article I read that we need sunscreen as well. It doesn't take much. A little goes a long way. I put it on my face and arms every morning. As the weather gets warmer and more of my body is exposed, I'll use it on those areas as well. I really like the fact that these products are made by black women for black women. I have made a conscious decision to spend as much of my money to purchase black owned products.
