I dunno about where y’all are, but here in Texas the heat is ON. The sun beating down with intense fury is enough to fry even the toughest skin. But since no one likes ripe tomato skin, we aren’t pushing our luck on beating burns on our own. Therefore we’re all scrambling for our gluten free sunscreen.
But as necessary as it is, it’s unusually difficult to find gluten free sunscreen.
I’ve hunted high and low for it and finally come up with 3 options. While I suspect there are more I just haven’t found yet, this is all I’ve been able to turn up. Actually, looking for more possibilities is why this article took so long in coming. But as summer wears on, we just can’t wait anymore.
So here’s what I’ve been able to turn up!
SPF 30 | 8oz | $39
After trying this sunscreen, I was really pleased with how good it felt. Ran around in it for an entire afternoon, kayaked for the first time (so fun!) and at the end of the afternoon, there was still sunscreen left on my skin! It was never overly chalky, nor gummy. It did have a bit of a white color when I first applied it, but it wasn’t so white it was startling. I’ve used lots of sunscreens in the past that made you look like you were freshly out of the dead of winter, but fortunately this is not one of them.
A little goes a long way with this sunscreen, thanks I think to the shea butter base.
SPF 30 | 4oz | $16
Slightly less creamy feeling than the Cleure, this sunscreen nonetheless is easy to apply and stays well, even when sweating. As much as I love Lemongrass Spa in general, I really didn’t know what to expect from their sunscreen. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it lasted.
There is a bit more of a white residue left from the Lemongrass Spa gluten free sunscreen that lasted the entire lifespan of the sunscreen. I didn’t mind though, because every time I looked down I knew I still had sunscreen on. It isn’t overly jarring, especially if you already have fairly pale skin.
SPF 30+ | 100 ml (3.38oz) | $26.95
This is the one sunscreen I’ve yet to try. Having heard really good things about this company, it sounds pretty amazing! It’s designed to wear on your face and under your makeup. It claims it doesn’t have any white residue and that it can help soothe skin irritations as well as prevent sunburn.
Sounds pretty good, right? I’d love to try it, but haven’t yet had the chance. If any of my readers have tried it, I’d love to hear what you thought of it! Leave a comment below and let us know!
And that does it for now!
I will keep looking for more gluten free sunscreen options, but for now, this is what we’ve got. 2 out of 3 being for sure good is a pretty awesome record, so personally I’m very pleased with what the gluten free sunscreen world has to offer us.
