The return of our HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free Daily Mineral Complex SPF 30 was a result of our shoppers’ requests. We came to realize that once you try and love a beautifully formulated product it can be frustrating if it’s eventually discontinued. While our CALM collection provides amazing options your feedback was more important and we chose to bring it back.

Q1How do I know if this sunscreen is right for me? 
A1The HYDRALIGHT SPF 30 is a light cream with hydrating moisture, and contains gentle mineral sunscreen ingredients, which are great if your skin is sensitive. It provides excellent broad-spectrum sun protection as well as beneficial antioxidants all combined to prevent premature aging of the skin. It also works well under makeup.
Q2Should I reapply HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free Daily Mineral Complex during the day?
A2Not necessarily. You’ll use this as the last step in your AM skincare routine, applied liberally. If you don’t apply liberally, you will need to reapply every two hours after your skin is exposed to direct sunlight.
Q3How does HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free Mineral Complex SPF 30 differ from CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin?
A3CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin is the same formula as our customer favorite HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free Mineral Complex SPF 30, but packaged to be part of the new CALM line. The formula’s restorative ingredients, lightweight lotion texture, gentle mineral-based sunscreens, and matte finish were an ideal fit for those with normal to oily skin struggling with redness and sensitivity. We know lots of women prefer a complete routine from the same product groupings which is why we have this product in two different places.
