NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30 | Review

While I have several facial sunscreens that I really love a great deal, I am always open to finding new sunscreen loves since using them is an essential part of my skincare routine every day of the year. My favorite types of sunscreens are inevitably those among them that feel more like nourishing luxurious skincare products than typical sunscreens that both look and feel like sunscreen. The latest sunscreen that is so great that it deserves to be raved about– which is precisely what I will be doing– is NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30. They make two different formulas: one is a chemical sunscreen, and the other is 100% Mineral Oil-Free version. The one that I am reviewing is the former, but if you prefer the latter you can see it here.
NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30 is a very lightweight and fast absorbing sunscreen that feels far more like a silky hydrating moisturizer than it does like a sunscreen. It leaves behind no greasy film or white-cast, and in no way feels like a typical sunscreen other than its ability to impart superior sun protection– provided that you do your part and reapply it every 80 minutes.

The antioxidant-rich formula is ultra hydrating, and their proprietary Pro-Niacin treats hyperpigmentation while improving skin tone and texture over time. It is fragrance free, noncomedogenic, and non-irritating. In fact, I find that it actually soothes and calms my normal/combination skin. My skin is left hydrated, soothed and vibrant when I use this sunscreen, and in fact it is moisturizing enough that I can altogether forego using an additional moisturizer during the summer months.

NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention SPF 30 is described as,

A lightweight, non-greasy lotion with SPF 30 and PA+++ that absorbs instantly into the skin. Formulated with powerful ingredients that provide UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays) protection from sun damage while helping to repair the skin barrier.

  • Continuous, deep delivery of Pro-Niacin strengthens the skin barrier.
  • Pro-Niacin is clinically shown to improve skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation.
  • Broad spectrum protection (UVA/UVB) with the highest PA rating, helps defend skin against free radical attacks that weaken and age the skin.
  • Mango Butter provides balanced moisturization without leaving residue.
  • Ceramides promote healthy, vibrant skin.
  • Antioxidants protect skin from oxidative stress.
  • Vitamin E helps to repair and protect skin while alpha bisabol soothes and hydrates.
  • Suitable for sensitive skins.
