So, I’ve done some research and am pleased to now share some options, for No Alcohol Sunscreen. Hope this film helps and make sure you protect your skin with a good SPF during the summer months. As always I look forward to chatting to you in the comments below. To stay up to date with all my films as they publish, please click on this link to subscribe Thank you.

The aim of Speed Beauty is to introduce you to and provide you with techniques for make up, skin & hair care products. I only show you products that I love and really believe in. Each product I use is heavily researched before deciding to make a film and I try and provide you with as much accurate information as possible. The views on this YouTube Channel are my own and are based on having personally tried the products myself.

The products I use in these films are either bought by myself, are part of my professional kit or they’ve been sent to me by PR companies for review. I am not currently paid for producing the films you watch. Some of the films contain affiliate links in the description, but not all. If you are happy to click on these links to continue support this channel that would be very lovely, thank you.

You should always research whether the products I recommend are suited to you. Everyones skin is different and I offer no warranties and don’t claim to be a dermatologist. Some products are really expensive and an investment purchase so it’s always wise to test product on your skin to check for allergies or adverse reactions before you buy. Some make up & skin care brands offer you samples to take away & try. This is always a good idea before deciding on an expensive purchase.

    I'm afraid you have got this the wrong way around! The mineral sunscreens work straight away as they are a barrier (hence can create a white cast) whilst the chemical ones takes about 20 mins to work.

    Lots of sunscreens make my eyes water and sting, I obviously don’t apply them near my eyes but over the day they migrate or get on my fingers etc…what is it that makes this happen? Thanks x

    Great video, thank you! Every time the alcohol debate comes up, I wish folks had listened more in chemistry class. Some alcohols are fatty and good for you. There are indeed alcohols that are bad and drying, but some are beneficial.

    Coola has been available in UK for some time (or it used to be available). They were sold at M&S when I visited London three years ago. Unfortunately I hated the spf 30 face cream I bought. I also hate the Skinceuticals ones. I have fair yellow based skin with some redness. The tinted one is too dark and the shade is odd. The untinted one is even worse. Some mineral sunscreens fade after absorbed. Not this one. At least if I used as much product as supposed to. Also my makeup will look ultra cakey and pale.

    The best explanation on how mineral sunscreen works! She also explains why mineral sun screen sometimes causes the ghost look so n photos. Brilliant. Thanks.

    You’ve got it the wrong way round with regards to needing time before sun exposure! If you’re to act as an authority and make recommendations, please make sure you brush up on the facts before videoing!! Also, the quantity applied is SO important! Dr Davin Lim and Dr Dray are the best videos to check out.

    There is some evidence that chemical sunscreens increase heat in the skin which can contribute to melasma. I am constantly battling melasma and I am sensitive to chemical SS so use only mineral based. Also, for anyone else with melasma, my derm told me that there needs to be at least 14% zinc oxide to protect your melasma from worsening.

    I still think the best sunscreen is shade and hat 😉 (on top of spf of course 😁)

    Actually now days mineral skincare have been so refined for cosmetic elegance they aren't as effective as larger paticals ( in past years) but people don't want that white cast. Still work but it's not as effective… also worth noteing UBA is the most important and some sunscreens don't give a good percentage of protection it's not about the spf it's about the% of UBA protection …
    I use La Roche posay which most derm's will recommend.. athlos light would be my recommendation. Topped up maybe with Vichy water spf. Xx

    Hi. Thanks Caroline. I've just tried the vichy face spf in this range. I had high hopes and was disappointed. Works fine but has a fragranced smell and any dry skin just rolls off all over hands. Unless I am putting too much on. Will try the spray though. The best face cream i have found so far is helio.

    From what I heard, mineral sunscreen gives you immediate protection, Dr. Davin Lim gave a in depth review of sunscreens.

    Thank you for this useful info on alcohol in products. Dr Davin Lim has a great video on how to choose sun screens and this also has lots of detail on the difference between physical and chemical protection. My understanding from this is that physical or mineral sun screens work immediately after application but chemical sun screens require 20 minutes to absorb into the skin and start working.

    Do you spray that sunscreen on before you apply makeup or after

    Love the speed! Physical sunscreens work immediately. I don't use "chemical" ones, such as Tinsorb, etc, so I'm not sure how much time they take to bring up protection. I think it's 20 minutes. Not sure 20 minutes is SUCH an important time in any case, though. Do you think so?
