SPF is a crucial component of skincare.
It protects your skin from hyper pigmentation and premature aging.
Many drugstore SPFs, on the other hand, are comedogenic and oily.
Because SNQ combines cutting-edge research and top-of-the-line products, I was really interested to try their SPF. My enthusiasm became even more when I saw that this SPF is colored!
That means I don't have to do anything special for my day off makeup; all I have to do is apply the SPF and walk outside. This product would be ideal for all skin types as a beauty professional.
It would also be ideal for someone who wears... Read more

As an Esthetician and Cosmetologist i can't express how important sunscreen is for the prevention of hyperpigmentation, aging and cancer. Although i can't 100% guarantee this is full protection sunscreen because it's winter and i haven't been at the beach but it feels like a really good coverage. I love that it is slightly tinted. I'm not a huge fan of foundation so having a tint in my suncreen is perfect for a light coverage. The texture isn't too thick or too thin. It leaves no white cast, and its a very natural finish. It doesn't leave the skin dry... Read more

SPF is a very important step in skincare. It protects your skin from pre-mature aging and hyperpigmentation. However, many drugstore SPF brands are comedogenic and feel greasy. I was super excited to try SPF from SNQ, because the brand uses innovative science and top-of-the-line ingredients. My excitement went even higher when I saw this SPF is tinted! That means no extra step for my day off makeup, I can just apply the SPF and go outside. It feels moisturizing, very light, plumps the skin and I don't even feel I am wearing anything, but a gel moisturizer. You can... Read more

I really enjoyed the feel of this, not greasy like other sunscreens which is perfect for someone like me who would use this under makeup. Again love love the packaging.

I have personally been in the beauty industry for 18 years. I have tried everything from creams, serums, gels, masks, you name it. But this SQN lightly tinted loaded with SPF 30 really hits different from the rest. It slides on so nice, doesn’t leave white dewy-ness. It actually helps me to put less concealer on because of the glow it leaves on my skin. A little goes a long way- and- IT WORKS! Imagine? How could a product be packed with hydration that plumps, a glowingly nice tint added and packed with SPF 30 and actually work?! Well it... Read more

Sunscreen is the number one anti-aging product that I recommend. Not only does it protect us from the sun's rays that cause cancer but it helps save our skin from premature wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. So much skin harm can be avoided simply by applying sunscreen daily. SQN Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 is the sunscreen that I have been applying lately. It manages to hydrate and offer SPF without being heavy or greasy. That is what I love about it. This does not make my combination skin more oily, it is actually mattifying. Ingredients such as Vitamin E, Green Tea... Read more

SQN Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 is a great everyday sunscreen. As we know using sunscreen everyday is key to maintaining and having amazing skin. Sunscreen protects your skin from the Ultraviolet rays that are always present which causes sun damage and can put you at a higher risk for skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen daily saves you from years of visible damage later. Sunscreen also helps prevent wrinkles, fine lines, blotchy skin, and hyperpigmentation.

The SQN Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 is the best sunscreen out there! It's just perfect. The active ingredient is Zinc Oxide - a natural mineral sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB rays - what is called "full spectrum". But what are the other ingredients? 15% Vitamin C (for brightening), 1% Vitamin E, 1% Ferulic acid and hydracell CBD complex (to calm the skin). It is made from responsibly-sourced ingredients, vegan, cruelty-free, recyclable material and has a shelf life (after opening) of 12 months. It has a very faint scent that doesn't bother at all and the best part is... Read more

I am always on the hunt for a good sunscreen but I find that my knowledge on the subject of sunscreen efficacy and safety paired with the makeup artist in me who wants a perfect finish on the skin, most sunscreens fall a little flat for me. Sunscreens are one of the few areas I am willing to compromise my ideals for skincare because sunscreen is a non-negotiable for maintaining healthy skin.
Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 is really a delight of a product to use. It is lightweight and layers well over moisturizer and under makeup. It has... Read more
