In case you weren’t aware: you need to wear SPF every single day. Yes, even if you’re sitting inside your house (ever heard of a window?) and even if you only plan on being outside for a few minutes. The sun’s UV rays are no joke, and it’s important to protect your skin if you want to fend off hyperpigmentation and scarier things, like skin cancer, later on down the line. There are plenty of amazing sunscreens on the market, but if you prefer a physical (vs chemical) formula, it can be harder to find.

For one thing, mineral sunscreens are notorious for leaving behind a white cast, which is especially annoying for people with darker skin tones. They can also sometimes feel sticky, heavy, or hard to blend. When we heard that Drunk Elephant was giving its Umbra Mineral SPF 30 Cream ($36) a facelift to address some of those concerns, we knew we had to try it out. The original formula came in two colors (Sheer and Tinte), but the brand has updated both and added a third shade, Umbra Cocoa. It’s also formulated with 20 percent zinc oxide, while promising to be easy to blend.

Like the rest of its products, the sunscreen is fragrance free and made for all skin types — including sensitive. Previously, some consumers had issues with the sheer formula leaving behind a white cast, so we had three editors with different skin tones put it to the test. Keep scrolling to read their honest reviews.
