    There are a ton of sunscreens that exist in the world. However, if you’re looking for one that feels comfortable on the skin and doesn’t leave a white or bluish cast, the pickings are slim. That was until Black Girl Sunscreen — aka the best sunscreen to hit the shelves — came along.

    I have combo-oily, acne-prone skin so anything I put on my skin must meet two requirements: 1. It doesn’t make my skin oilier and 2. It doesn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts.

    I’m wearing makeup less and less these days so I can’t risk wearing sunscreen that leaves me looking like one of the Gross Sisters fromThe Proud Family (although it is one of my favorite childhood cartoons).

    Though I have oily-ish skin, I don’t mind that the formula gives me a bit of a glow. I’m not one of those oily gals who long for matte, shine-free skin. Give me the glow and all its glory, please!

    My only wish is that there was a larger value-priced size. The 3-ounce size typically lasts me about four to six weeks (applying daily using the two-finger rule).

    Anytime I'm in Target I make sure to grab a bottle of Black Girl Sunscreen if I see it because it quite literally flies off the shelf (clearly, there's a reason for the 4.7-star rating and over 500 5-star reviews). Don’t believe me when I say this is the sunscreen of all sunscreens? Check out these reviews for other stans.

    Get the Black Girl Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 from Target for $15.99.
