Brand Spotlight: Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte + D-Bronzi Anti Pollution Sunshine Drops.

I might have previously written about the brand but at the time knew of and tried the serum type items/oils and today I’m here to write about 2 of the other items that I tried (and loved)!

*Umbra Tinte physical daily defense protection spf 30

This sunscreen is 20% zinc oxide which is my favorite type of sunscreen but in most cases you get that really pale white film over your face, right? I’ve tried different tinted sunscreens and so far my favorites were the mdsolarsciences one and this one. My best friend says the cotz?brand I believe is another great one. I haven’t tried that one but she loved it. Back to the product..here’s some of the key points to the product.

-ingredients include things like sunflower sprout extract, aloe leaf extract, grape juice extract to name a few

-smells decent it doesn’t have the strong zinc scent I got from previous strong sunscreens

-shade is darker than most tinted sunscreens which I LOVE I can actually just do a one-and done kinda thing I didn’t use concealer so that was a win

-it is heavier and somewhat oily if you have oily skin it might not be for you but for someone dry/sensitive/combo everything–but oily it works.


Now onto the D-Bronzi anti pollution sunshine drops

I really like this stuff. As I noted in my profile, I am a huge bronzer enthusiast I love all forms of it but I do prefer cream-gel type bronzers the best because I can mix them into moisturizers and cc creams. With wonderful ingredients like cocoa extract, platinum peptides it does not irritate my skin. I don’t even need a drop to mix into my cc cream to get the sun kissed look I desire. This one is by far my favorite D. E. item aside from the Framboos(sorry if I spelled that one wrong but its definitely the pink screw lid one and you use that one at night improves acne scars and dark spots)
