We all know the importance of wearing sunscreen. Problem is, looking for a sunscreen we actually want to wear is a challenge. Most formulas are oily, smell funky, leave us with a white cast and, in the worst-case scenario, clogged pores. Suffice it to say, we’re picky when it comes to our SPF—and if we plan on wearing it all year long, why not?
Well, Banila Co. understands: the Hello Sunny line is the SoKo powerhouse’s latest solution to all the issues we have with sunscreen.
The four-piece line offers formulas that are lightweight, invisible to the eye (no chalky layer!), and only carry the slightest aroma—a mixture of citrus fruit and flowers. All the varieties offer SPF 50+ PA++++ with birch tree extract and spirulina, two nourishing properties that leave our pelts protected and healthy. To put it plainly and simply: it’s an SPF we certainly wouldn’t mind slathering ourselves with.
What’s more, three of four products come in a convenient stick form. Perfect for carrying in your purse for mess-free application whenever, wherever you forget to apply your sunscreen.
Aside from the neon rainbow packaging, the products are named to indicate their differences. Each product is made with a unique formulation, serving a specific purpose for your complexion. Whether you’re oily, dry, or somewhere in the middle, there’s one made specifically for you and your skin concerns. Here’s what you can expect!
