I grew up in Perth Western Australia, with baking hot summers on the beach (and no ozone layer). I loathe chemical sunscreens and for years were forced to deal with either severe sunburn or awful products that whilst prevent sunburn, wreak havoc on my skin and the environment. As a now competitive ultra runner, I spend a lot of time outdoors in the elements, and have spent long days at races where temps get well over 35C (and over 100F). I've had sunscreen in my eyes, and greasy residue causing problems so often, and hated there wasn't a practical alternative. When I heard of Amavara, I was blown away and it felt to good to be true. I ordered some and haven't looked back. This is by far the best product I've ever seen. I can put it on in any conditions, don't worry about if its in my eyes or on my hands, nor have to worry about greasy residue. I'm conscious of my environmental impact and I feel at ease knowing Amavara does not destroy reefs and put toxic chemicals out in the world. The product works better than any chemical sunscreen, and I have peace of mind I can use it as often as needed and not worry about myself or the environment. It will be an asset next time I race in the desert or in summer, and I can be confident my skin is being cared for alongside the environment. Thank you to Amavara for creating this phenomenal product, it's a total game changer.
you know what’s exciting?? when you get a package with THREE AMAVARA SUNSCREENS IN IT. that’s what’s exciting.
amavara has one of the highest percentages of zinc oxide i have ever seen in a sunscreen! none of that avobenzone stuff that turns my skin bright red.
y’all should jump on the amavara train if you haven’t already 👀👀
Love this sunscreen. Stays on for hours.
I dont burn easily, but I do burn, and as far as I can tell your sunscreen works exactly like you said it would. The only thing that takes a little getting used to is the thickness of the paste (coming from general sunscreens and spray ons) but its hardly a big deal and I dont mind rubbing it into the skin a few extra minutes. If anything it feels like it works better cause I have to spend more time on it. Anyway, great product, thanks!
I'm having oily, acne prone skin. The sunscreen overall texture is just nice, non greasy and does not leave any white cast at all! It also act like a perfect seal after your daily skincare underneath it with a bit of matte plus a little natural shine finish which I truly love it. Thanks Amavara!
Love this sunscreen, especially the tint when applied to the face, looks like natural makeup!
So happy I found this sunscreen (thanks Jess and Robbie!). The tint is perfect even though I’m super pale- with my freckles it blends right in. It arrived right as I came home with a terrible sunburn; I put it on immediately, reapplied three hours later and burn was gone in the AM. Great trick and this soothing stuff proved itself right off the bat! I use it for surfing and daily outings with the dog etc.
Only con is it does stain! My masks are all weird and dirty looking on the inside no matter how much I was them and beware of white pillowcases in case you’re ever too tired to wash it off after a day of outside play ❤️
I love their tinted lotion! It’s a nice, thick sunscreen, so it stays put and I don’t worry about it coming off easily. The tint evens out my skin tone and prevents that ghostly look zinc sunscreens usually give!
Absolutely love it! I use it when I surf and also when I need just a little color out and a bout. Super smooth and hasn’t clogged my pores.
This sunblock is hands down the best sunblock I have ever used. Living on the North Shore of O’ahu and being in the water and beach almost every day with my Family surfing and playing in the water, I noticed how the sunblock really stays on your skin and goes on really nicely as well
To say I’m picky about sunscreen is an understatement. I’ve tried numerous brands (well-known, local, handmade, expensive, cheap, etc.) spending stupid amounts of money. I have oily skin and I am in a constant sweat when I workout on the water and on land. It goes on matte and doesn’t have that annoying touristy sunscreen smell (fake coconut- gag). I do a quick smear with my fingers afterwards just to ensure I don’t have a single sunburn streak somewhere on my face. I only use it on my face, neck, and chest and haven’t gotten sunburn yet. My new favorite brand.
Very convenient! Perfect size for your pocket, and doesn’t smell bad like a lot of other sunscreens do.
This is a great sunscreen. I am pretty fair and this has kept my skin very protected despite a lot of time in the sun. I also love the tinted color - it easily blends into my skin and can be used as great natural coverage or easily layered with foundation for more coverage. Coming back for more!
Amazing sunscreen. Live in Hawaii and surf all day. Still have yet to be sunburned while using this.
Great feel, covers well and lasts under tough conditions!
Product was came highly reccomend. I love the tinted face coverage and no sun burns after a weekend on the boat :)
I really like the face stick for long surf sessions. The sunscreen is not too heavy and stays on! I need to use makeup remover to scrub off the sunscreen sometimes since it stays on.
I work outside as a beach lifeguard. On my first day trialing the SPF 50, I was not under shelter conducting some training. I didn't get sunburned at all and the product stayed on. Great stuff!
Amavara sunscreen works very well in blocking intense rays and goes on smoothly. It is not greasy which I appreciate.
I love it! It blends in so easily:)
One application is good for a few hours in the surf.
luv the sunblock
Absolutely love this sunscreen! Spending 10 plus hours in the sun can be rough but AMAVARA keeps us safe!
have had so much sun over the years, and while always had freckles, now more! I feel that this really protects my skin more than other sunscreens that wash away with sweat and the day….Liz
This new one is ok but the old formula in the airless pump was the most amazing mineral sunscreen I’d ever used ( and I’ve tried them all). My skin looked amazing with it on- it would look slightly greasy for a minute or 2 when you first put it in but then it would settle and be gorgeous! This new one seems to stay greasier and the texture is slightly different.
Love love love this sunscreen. No more caked-on white crusty faces. My kids don’t fight me on applying this multiple times a day. They love the face stick and even apply it by themselves. The tinted one is my favourite though because it gives me a lovely subtle glow. My only complaints are that it doesn’t come in larger sizes and shipping to Canada is pricey.
So many SPFs I’ve tried in the past leave a weird residue, don’t dry down, and make me look ghostly! But not this one... I’m amazed. Would 100% recommend this product to everyone.
It stays on while swimming and is not greasy.
Love this product! Love that it is helping the environment and safe on my skin!
I’ve been an esthetician for over 10 years and have tried several different sunscreens under the sun, literally. Amavara is not only the only sunscreen I wear surfing because even in hot climates such as Costa Rica, I never even turned a shade of red but it also acts as a hydrating treatment in the salt water. My skin is more plump and hydrated when I get out of the ocean. I have a bottle in my truck, in my purse, and always on my vanity. I use the tinted during the work day as my concealer and throw some powder and blush over, makeup done in 10 min. I have a few clients that are competitive swimmers and they wear nothing else. As many of you, I absolutely hate sun damage on my face or neck and because this sunscreen is completely natural and reef safe the real question is why wouldn’t you only use this!
I wish these came in bigger bottles! Love this sunscreen. No white cast ever!
This sunscreen is a GAME CHANGER! I will never use anything else again. I got the tinted one and even though I have pretty bad acne scars, it makes my face look so even and I feel confident enough to just go out with this. It’s also beautiful under makeup and it the first one that hasn’t broken me out!
I am 24 year olds and I have dealt with mild, moderate, and severe acne since I was 11 years old! (Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s awful) So as you could imagine, I have tried everything under the sun. My biggest issue has always been sunscreens!! Sunscreens are one of my biggest sensitivities, and have caused SEVERE acne (for months :( ) when they irritate me. I have tried so many different physical sunscreens, chemical sunscreens that state “non comedogenic” blah blah, from La Roche Posay, Elta MD, etc. But... I never found one I was in love with. They would either be too gritty, too drying, too white, too greasy, etc. I took a chance with Amavara after seeing an Instagram AD. I saw that their sunscreens were safe for environment, and their ingredient list was sensitive skin friendly. After 2 weeks of having my sunscreen, wearing it every single day, I will tell you.. I FINALLY FOUND MY FAVORITE EVERY DAY SUNSCREEN EVER. This sunscreen matches all skin tones, creates such a pretty base for makeup (or not) and it does NOT break me out. Funnily enough, my skin has been even BETTER after using this sunscreen religiously. I LOVE IT. I love it so much that I got both of my sisters to buy it also!! They also loooove it. One of my sister has moderate eczema, and she was so impressed with this sunscreen she was texting me all day about how amazing her face looks from just the natural texture the product. That’s how good this stuff is! Whether you have oily skin, sensitive skin, eczema, this is the sunscreen for you. Do not worry about the tint, it truly blends in to your skin perfectly. I love this!!! If you’re hesitant, take the plunge and buy it!! Thank you Amavara, this is the best product everrrrr <3
