Hi Glitter Babes!
Ever since I was a kid, I have LOATHED the feeling of sunscreen. The sliminess, the smell and how if it's not rubbed in properly, you will look like an idiot with white gunk all over your body. I found out about Consonant Skincare when I went to the Blush Pretty Beauty Board back in May and that's when I met my perfect (get it?! :P) match with The Perfect Sunscreen!
It's 100% natural, which is another thing I'm trying to get more into, and applies without the greasy, white residue you get with most sunscreens. The Perfect Sunscreen has got your skin covered with SPF 30 and a natural mica tint, which makes for an even better experience because it helps even out your skin tone! If you have very sensitive skin because aside from being 100% natural, it's also fragrance free.

This sunscreen is perfect to wear to go swimming (just make sure to reapply as soon as you get out!) and when you're going to be out in the sun for a while. It has a slight "clay" kind of scent that I wasn't bothered by and applied in a thicker consistency which helped it stay in place. After I rubbed it in my skin felt smooth, minus any stickiness, and it didn't feel heavy whatsoever. I really like the subtle hint of colour it gives the skin so even if you're not a fan of going barefaced to the beach or wherever, the colour this will add will be enough to even out your skin tone and reduce blotchiness. While I've had it on, my skin has felt comfortable, nicely hydrated with the more even tone still in effect.
Overall, this product felt a lot like a tinted moisturizer and gave me a soft-looking glow. I like wearing this with some concealer for a natural look, especially when I want to give myself a break from putting a full face of makeup on (which is happening a lot lately). Obviously the fact that it's 100% natural makes me feel better about it going on and into my skin. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a natural ,non-sticky sunscreen with a nice tinted boost to it.
