Higher Education Spring Break SPF 30

While Summer may be officially over, it's still hot out there.  And the sun is still shining so we need to keep that SPF on every day.

 I've had this newish one from a new to me brand called Higher Education Skincare in my stash for some time  and have used it over the last couple months under makeup . Sometimes over a separate moisturizer ,sometimes not. It's a nice pick for combo/oilier skins as it's a lightweight, sheer, almost matte finish that adds light moisture (aloe vera, glycerin, squalene, vitamin e ) . So it acts as a little bit of skincare too. Green tea and grapeseed extracts turn up at the end of the ingredient list for a small antioxidant boost. 

Also even there's 4.00% zinc oxide , there's no white cast. The broad spectrum SPF 30 is rounded out with Octinoxate 6.90 % and Octisalate 3.00% . 

Higher Education , if you're not familiar is a newer brand that has a dermatologist on board in  Dr. Susan Cox of California to vet formulas . They also donate 3% of  net profits to WE School , division of .

The fragrance is minimal , a little bit of a cocoa butter scent and the brand is cruelty free.

Higher Education Spring Break SPF 30 is $ 25 for a 2.5 oz tube
