Who’s it for: Our sweat junkie who is looking for light, natural, all-day coverage that won’t melt off as you sweat. Details: This tinted sunscreen/BB cream was created to hydrate, protect, and cover your skin. It’s pumped with antioxidants that protect your skin against damaging free radicals and provides a mineral SPF 30 without the toxic, hormone-altering chemicals in most sunscreens. Suntegrity is paraben, preservative, sulfate, oil, fragrance, and chemical-free. It contains mineral SPF 30 for daily sun protection, hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to help moisturize the skin, and reduces redness. It is lightly tinted to provide some coverage for the natural look.
It is not full coverage, so if you’re looking for full coverage, this BB cream is not for you.
I was very impressed by this BB cream, because it stayed on during spin, and through a sweaty leg day. I have been using it for a while, and I have not been breaking out. And I’m also very happy to protect my skin daily with the sunscreen!

Sometimes we just can’t go to the gym or to our favorite class with a bare face. I get that. (Been there…) But the biggest problem for me, especially being from Arizona, is that within minutes of being outside, you’re sweating. And with sweat, our make-up tends to drip off of our face—or straight into our pores. After 10 minutes outside, you realize there was really no point in spending the time to put it on anyways. The same goes for our sweat sessions. You start sweating, and the make-up goes with it. In this Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Sunscreen review, I’ll give you the pros and cons on this natural solution.
Some background: I am a huge advocate of organic make-up. This means that I don’t want to put chemicals in or on my body. So it is important that I find a chemical-free make-up that doesn’t seep into my skin. And think about it: when you start sweating, your pores immediately open up. In other words, they give chemicals a direct route into your body.
Don’t get me wrong—building up a sweat can make a workout feel rewarding. In fact, some people even like the benefits of an infrared sauna blanket. They use them so that they can sweat when they’re not working out. But it just isn’t sexy to have runny make-up. And, it’s hard to find a brand that meets all of my criteria for make-up at the gym.
I’ve had many sweat sessions in different kinds of makeup. As a result, I finally found one that meets my needs. Suntegrity is sweat proof, chemical-free, made with SPF, and light enough for my oily skin (that tends to get oily regardless of what I put on it). Hands-down, Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Sunscreen is the best sweat-proof, gym-proof, and natural makeup that won’t cause breakouts. It’s a win-win-win for this sweat junkie.
