The Skinny Confidential Caffeinated Sunscreen: Your New Skincare Staple

In the event you’ve been a part of The Skinny Confidential group for a whilst you can bear in mind years in the past once I was blabbing about my obsession with caffeinated sunscreen.

Blabbed about it ceaselessly. I couldn’t recover from a SPF with caffeine, one thing in regards to the concept of pairing SPF with caffeine was simply IT for me. Who doesn’t need their face tightened whereas it’s protected? 

(If you wish to go down reminiscence lane: sunscreen psycho in 2013, the right way to apply it to your eyelids in 2017 and the right way to contact up your SPF in 2022 with out fucking up your make-up. To not point out essentially the most mentions in between. From , sizzling pink balaclavas, driving gloves and a whole e book, solar safety has been the core of The Skinny Confidential). 

So in the present day’s the day. We’re launching caffeinated mineral sunscreen…AND it occurs to be the identical day as our anniversary sale. Consider it as a technique to have fun the launch and to have fun you, the OG readers and listeners. It’s an enormous second, that’s been years within the making and strategically launching forward of spring and summer time at 20% off so you possibly can refill.

Backstory, as a result of that’s all the time enjoyable: once we began formulating our personal sunscreen it was going to be a chemical sunscreen. I attempted it. I liked it. After which I had an epiphany. We would have liked to change it to mineral. That’s proper, midway by improvement we began realizing that we might convey you one thing higher. One thing cleaner, more healthy and extra environment friendly. So we pivoted and switched our components to a bodily, mineral-based sunscreen. Value an arm and a leg but it surely needed to be excellent. 

It pushed the timeline, however we wished to convey you essentially the most elevated, superb sunscreen. One which lifts and tightens. One which protects and hydrates. One which nourishes however is non-greasy and light-weight. Most significantly- one which seamlessly matches into your skincare routine. The most effective half? No white solid, only a dewy glow. It is going to even lay properly underneath your make-up, which is appreciated. The image beneath is me with ONLY this caffeinated SPF on. No make-up. It’s simply so good and was definitely worth the wait.

With this upcoming launch I spent some reflecting on the previous few years and, as I usually do, flipped open Get The Fuck Out Of The Solar. When writing it, one of many essential issues that caught out to me was that nearly each single particular person talked about the significance of sunscreen. That they all the time put on SPF, they’re telling you to put on SPF, they WISH they wore it once they have been youthful. 

Studying Dr. Dennis Gross’ foreword gave me chills- it’s very full circle for a sunscreen launch: 

Lauryn’s repute preceded her—significantly amongst dermatologists. After I met her in particular person for the primary time, I already knew about her militant skincare routine and her compulsive solar avoidance, particularly her driving gloves. I’ll always remember the primary time that I noticed these white gloves.I might by no means have been capable of persuade my teenage daughters to put on them, but it surely was straightforward after Lauryn’s endorsement. I bear in mind pondering, How f ***ing cool is that?! She has simply made solar safety stylish and classy whereas additionally defending her pores and skin from UVA/UVB and the sunspots and wrinkles they trigger. After talking extra with Lauryn about her skincare routine, she checked all of the bins to earn the excellence of my greatest affected person. She was the primary to confess she’s hooked on skin-care and obsessive about magnificence. Her ardour is an efficient factor. –Dr. Dennis Gross, ‘Get the Fuck Out of the Solar’

Even the mission on the finish of the e book is becoming:

If this e book can affect ONE particular person to spend an additional 10 minutes a day on self-care, and even persuade somebody to begin being preventative by sporting hats and utilizing sunscreen, I’ll die joyful.

With that:



Reduces the looks of wrinkles and puffiness

An antioxidant to assist battle UV harm

Lifts, tightens and companies

Decreases irritation

And right here’s why we determined to go for a bodily (mineral) sunscreen against a chemical. Neither is best than the opposite, they’re simply totally different.

Each are nice however for various causes. The group and I made a decision to go together with a mineral sunscreen so it was higher fitted to all pores and skin varieties (normally delicate and acne-prone pores and skin does higher with mineral SPF), and it tends to have broader UV safety than chemical ones. Plus we wished to convey you an excellent clear components.

“Keep away from elements which can be disruptive and complicated to pores and skin, however paradoxically might be present in most merchandise in the marketplace. I seek advice from them as “the suspicious six,” and they’re silicones, chemical sunscreens, important oils, perfume, dyes, SLS, and drying alcohols.” Tiffany Masterson of Drunk Elephant 

Together with caffeine, we needed to make it possible for our SPF had elements with magnificence advantages. Certainly one of my favourite options is that we added Spirulina extract to battle blue gentle harm from all our screens as of late. YOU WILL LOVE.
