    REN Clean Screen Mineral Sunscreen

    With an increased focus on clean beauty and sustainable packaging, we expect REN’S Clean Screen Sunscreen to be huge for summer 2019.

    The non-nano and mineral technology means that it’s ocean safe as it doesn’t contain any pollutant particles. Instead, it’s infused with zinc oxide, which helps to shield against UVA, UVB and blue light technology, alongside rice starch to absorb excess oil and yellow passion fruit seed extract to hydrate and boost the skin’s defence system against free radical damage.

    It’s moisturising yet not greasy, super lightweight and great as a makeup primer. In fact, there’s nothing we don’t love about this new generation of suncare.
