Review: Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50

I've grown fond of powdered sunscreens in the last year, largely because of the quick and easy application. I also love the fact that I can have sun protection over SPF 15 without the "sunscreen smell." Colorescience makes a powdered sunscreen with an impressive SPF of 50: Sunforgettable Mineral Powder.

  • Convenient brush dispenser
  • UVA/UVB protection
  • High SPF suitable for daily use even in sunny climates
  • Lightweight
  • No "sunscreen smell"
  • Water resistant
  • Limited color range
Colorescience's Sunforgettable Mineral Powder is a convenient way to apply daily sun protection. Although the price for the brush and powder is a relatively high $60, the refills are only $23. I would love to see a brush that is a bit softer and slightly more dense, more like a kabuki. Those who wish to use their own brush can use the very similar mineral powder ($35) and a good powder brush, such as the EcoTools retractable kabuki. If I were to improve this product, I would offer a translucent color to accommodate for more skin tones. I may also consider reformulating to bring the EWG safety rating down a bit.

UPDATE: According to a representative from Colorescience, "All of our raw materials are sourced as gluten free but we cannot guarantee there is no cross contamination with gluten ingredients in the production and transportation process."
