20 Affordable Sunscreens With No White Cast & Where to Buy Them

It’s 2021 and more people understand the importance of sunscreens in a skincare routine for ANY skin type. As a POC, sunscreens with no white cast are definitely more favored and I’m always on the lookout for them. In this post, I’ll be sharing different sunscreens you can add to your routine that leave ZERO white cast. This includes the price points, where you can shop them in Nigeria and abroad, and also links to detailed reviews on some of them.

kose-suncut-uv-perfect-essence-waterproof-japanese-spf50-sunscreens-no-white-cast-khairahscorner

This is my first Japanese sunscreen, it’s a chemical sunscreen and I read a lot of great reviews about it.

One thing I’ve noticed about Japanese sunscreens is that they always have several variations to suit different preferences and I love it! They mostly vary in terms of texture, white cast, waterproof quality, etc. This one has a gel version, the brand features many other variations and you can just check them out.
