Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 (longest name ever) from Suntegrity. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour website]

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

Beauty boosting skincare, sunscreen and makeup all in one! This medium coverage formula gives skin a flawless, smooth, more youthful appearance. Formulated without oils or silicones, this vitamin and peptide rich technology, visibly reduces the signs of aging while non-nano zinc oxide and melanin provide Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and blue light protection to help prevent any future damage.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

  • Vitamin C + E – antioxidant protection that feeds & nourishes the skin
  • Peptides visibly reduce the signs of aging and provide an overall smoothing effect
  • Non-Nano Zinc Oxide provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection
  • Melanin (from non-GMO corn) protects the skin from damaging blue/violet light
  • Hyaluronic Acid provides long lasting hydration
  • Environmental Shield – protects against pollutants and allergens while preserving skin’s natural barrier function

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

This is available in five shades: 01 Ivory, 02 Buff, 03 Sand, 04 Tan, and 05 Bronze. I received the lightest shade Ivory.

I’ve previously tried and reviewed a sample of the 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Sunscreen (Tinted) in the shade Fair back in 2015 (review is here), which worked great on its own, but didn’t play nicely with other makeup (concealer, powder, highlighter, and blush), so I was hoping that this new tinted SPF product would work better for me.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin

Shadewise, Ivory is a perfect match for my face right now, but will likely be too light by mid-summer.

I found that this tinted sunscreen worked best if I applied it over moisturizer as the matte finish was a little too drying for my skin if applied without moisturizing first. I think that it would work really well for normal to oily skin (my skin is currently normal to very slightly dry right now).

And most importantly, the Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen played nicely with my concealer and other makeup!

[all info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour May2019

Let’s take a closer look at what was in this month’s Petit Vour box:

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Moisturizing Face Sunscreen Tinted SPF 30 (sample size 0.25oz $7 USD, full size 2oz $55 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

Beauty boosting skincare, sunscreen and makeup all in one! This medium coverage formula gives skin a flawless, smooth, more youthful appearance. Formulated without oils or silicones, this vitamin and peptide rich technology, visibly reduces the signs of aging while non-nano zinc oxide and melanin provide Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and blue light protection to help prevent any future damage.

This is available in five shades: 01 Ivory, 02 Buff, 03 Sand, 04 Tan, and 05 Bronze. I received Ivory. In the summer, I tend to wear very little makeup, and when I do, it is more likely to be either a tinted sunscreen, or a BB Cream with SPF – so I look forward to trying this one out.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream (full size 2oz $48 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

A lightweight moisturizer that protects skin from dehydration and damage from environmental aggressors. The super emollient algae base ensures instantaneous absorption while the advanced blend of dermal proteins increases elasticity and leaves a matte, silky finish. An amazing, invisible base for makeup application. For Whom: Normal, Dry, Combo + Sensitive Skin. The natural emollient properties of seaweed give this cream a uniquely light and silky texture. Vitamin E strengthens collagen and increases elasticity.

This moisturizer sounds great – lightweight and hydrating. Can’t wait to start testing it out! This is a full size product. I like that it can also be used as a primer.

BKind Sensitive Skin Face Scrub (sample size  15g $9 USD, full size 48g $25 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

The cranberry seeds and hibiscus face scrub has been created for your skin to be softly exfoliated and hugely moisturized at the same time. 

Perfect for sensitive or dry skin: this face scrub will leave your skin smooth, glowing and moisturized. 

A scrub for sensitive skin, hello! Can’t wait to try this one out! And, they’re Montreal based.

Lavido Thera Intensive Foot Cream (sample size 30ml $7 USD, full size $28 USD)

Petit Vour May2019

This ultra hydrating foot cream is formulated with the aromatic Achillea plant and purifying oils like distilled myrtle and Organic Tea Tree. Serves to moisturize and repair chafed skin as well as purify and prevent foot odor. Leaves skin soft, supple and energized.

Since the weather is hopefully finally warming up, I’ll be living in sandals, so a good foot cream is always a useful product!

Petit Vour May2019

Total value of this month’s box is $71 USD which works out to be $98.19 CAD. I’m super happy with this month’s box!

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil from Suntegrity that came in my April Petit Vour subscription box. In my unboxing, I initially said that this was going in my stash, but I ended up testing it out because curiosity got the best of me! [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour April 2018

Vanish away stubborn mineral sunscreen, makeup and dirt without damaging your skin’s natural protective barrier. Formulated with certified organic olive, jojoba, sunflower and camellia oils, this vegan-friendly cleanser is extra gentle on delicate skin and eye area. Antioxidant rich botanicals of rose hips and echinacea leave skin feeling supple and toned while a subtle hint of hibiscus and sweet orange invigorate your senses and transform your ordinary skin cleansing routine into an uplifting daily ritual.

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil

This is a great lightweight cleansing oil. It really does remove sunscreen, and makeup without leaving the skin feeling over-cleansed or greasy. It is super gentle, yet super effective! As an added plus, it smells really nice due to the sweet orange and hibiscus oils.

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil*, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract*, Rosa Canina (Rosehips) Fruit Extract*, Echinacea Purpurea extract*, Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Essential Oil* (cold-pressed), Hibiscus Flavor Oil*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract* | *Certified Organic.

Suntegrity Vanish Organic Cleansing Oil

As you can see from the above ingredients, it contains a blend of skin friendly oils – olive, jojoba, sunflower, and camellia oils.

I have several facial cleansers in my stash right now, so I don’t actually need to purchase the full size at this point in time, but I’ll definitely be using this cleansing oil up on days when I feel like a need extra cleansing and don’t want to irritate my sensitive skin.

Do you have a fave oil cleanser?

Kind Beauty Collective Samples – Part One – Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen

I posted back in April when I unboxed my first Kind Beauty Collective order and have since reviewed the Ahimsa Naturals Solid Brush Cleaner, and the Au Naturale Creme Concealer, but I didn’t get around to reviewing the bundle of samples that they so nicely added with my purchases until now.

Kind Beauty Collective Samples

When I placed my order with the Kind Beauty Collective, they asked if I wanted any skincare or make-up samples, and of course, I said yes, and just to make sure that I got things that I would want to use, I mentioned that I am fairly pale, brunette, blue eyes, and that I have sensitive skin. I recieved the following: 1. Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen (in Fair), 2. Zabana Essentials  Facial Cleansing Bar, 3. Modern Minerals Eyeshadow (in Lola), and 4. Pour le Monde Parfum (in Envision). I will be reviewing three of the four samples that were included in my package, in a two part review. Part two is here.

Why only three? I’ll get to that.

suntegrity skincare sample

First up is the  Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen (in Fair). Our weather finally went from dreadful to summery, so I knew that this would be the perfect time to test this one out! On the Kind Beauty Collective site, it is described as:

Suntegrity all in one, “UV Chemical-Free” Tinted Sunscreen/Beauty Benefit (BB) cream treats, hydrates, protects, primes and covers the skin without being greasy. Featuring youth promoting antioxidants that help to scavenge surface free radicals, this cream also provides mineral Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection.

Hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin, red algae and Certified Organic: aloe vera, jojoba, sunflower, pomegranate, cucumber, and green tea help provide additional sun protection and hydration. Non-nano sized zinc-oxide not only protects the skin from the damaging UV rays, but it also soothes and calms the skin. Zinc-oxide is known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties that often help skin conditions like rosacea, acne, and melasma.

suntegrity skincare sample

Suntegrity is double certified cruelty-free by both PETA and Leaping Bunny, and the product is vegan. It is available in five different shades: fair, light, golden light, medium, and deep bronze.

Shade-wise, I thought at first swatch on my arm that it was actually going to be too light for me (this is a rare thing, usually products are too dark on my skin), but because it is a light coverage product, the shade works well with my skin tone. The coverage is super sheer, so if you need a heavier coverage, then this is not the product for you. If you look to the right of the swatch, you can faintly see the ink stamp on my arm –  remember this when you look at the next photo which will illustrate the level of coverage once the sunscreen / bb cream is rubbed in:

suntegrity skincare sample

My sensitive skin did not react to the tinted sunscreen / bb cream. Worn alone, it applied evenly, but when I tried to incorporate it into my regular make-up (concealer, powder foundation, highlighter, and blush) I found that it pilled, and made my make-up streaky and weird on my skin.  I don’t wear liquid foundation, so I have no idea if it would work better with that or not. I think that I would only use this if I was going to the beach, or for going for a run, not for wearing under my make-up.

You can find the  Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen at the Kind Beauty Collective, for $45 USD, and they do ship internationally. or directly from Suntegrity Skincare (although I am not 100% sure if they ship internationally).

Secondly, we have the Zabana Essentials  Facial Cleansing Bar. It is described on the Kind Beauty Collective site:

Put your best FACE forward with the  Zabana Essentials French Green Facial Cleansing Bar! A balanced bar that absorbs and removes impurities from the face, with infused DETOXIFYING, TONING & REVITALIZING  essential oils of Tea Tree, Clary Sage, Lavender, and Grapefruit.

It is cruelty-free, and vegan, and the company is certified by PETA. The facial cleansing bar smells lovely, but sadly I didn’t try this one out as my skin reacts badly to Tea Tree oil and makes it burning and red, so I didn’t do more than just look and smell this one.

Zabana Essentials Sample

You can find the Zabana Essentials Facial Cleansing Bar at at the Kind Beauty Collective, for $5.95 USD for a 5 oz bar (142g).

Thanks for reading! ❤
