Banish is a sustainable and cruelty-free brand with a mission to banish acne, diminish acne scars and fade hyperpigmentation. Initially, when they reached out to me, I was concerned that their products would not be a good fit for me since I don't have acne, acne scarring, or much in the way of hyperpigmentation. They assured me that they make products that would be perfect for my normal/combination skin, and they were right.

Banish The Defender Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a lightweight mineral sunscreen that is neither greasy, nor does it leave behind a white film. It boasts a peptide-rich formula that offers skin light hydration, ample sun protection, and the formula offers a light blurring effect. It plays well with makeup, and it is fragrance-free. It is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, and like all sunscreens it should be reapplied frequently (about every 60-80 minutes) to remain effective.

According to Banish,

Lightweight mineral sunscreen that is peptide rich. It softly blurs pores to minimize them. Peptide rich formula - contains 3 types of peptides that can help improve skin tone, texture, and fine lines because they signal to the skin to keep producing collagenLightly moisturizes with an aloe vera base, and skin healthy oils like jojoba and avocado oil.

  1. Sounds like an excellent sunscreen. I'm hoping to spend next winter in Florida and I'll need something with SPF 50.

    1. You certainly will want a solid performing high SPF sunscreen if you spend your next winter in Florida, Marcia! That will certainly beat the brutal winter in Michigan!
