ShineBlock™ Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30
This mattifying moisturizer with SheerGenius™ Technology provides 100% mineral-active sun protection that’s sheer on diverse skin tones.
What is it?
If you’re looking for a mattifying moisturizer that offers SPF protection for oily, blemish-prone skin, look no further! ShineBlock™ is a lightweight SPF 30 moisturizer that absorbs excess oil and controls shine for a sheer, matte finish. It also shields skin from harmful UVA/UVB damage to protect your glow!
Mineral sunscreens aren’t designed for every shade of skin under the sun. Until now…
New ShineBlock™ features our SheerGenius™ Technology with Zinc Oxide to provide 100% mineral-active broad spectrum sun protection for all skin tones. Unlike most mineral sunscreens, which go on thick and leave a white or purple cast, this formula is sheer on diverse skin tones! Zinc Oxide is finely milled, which makes it easy to blend into the skin and virtually impossible to see.
Free of parabens, sulfates, gluten and artificial fragrance. Not tested on animals.

Is this a sunscreen or moisturizer or is it both?
This dual-purpose formula is a moisturizer and a broad-spectrum SPF in one! Suitable for oily, blemish-prone skin types.
Why is this formula sheer?
Our SheerGenius™ Technology uses finely milled particles to create a sunscreen that provides 100% mineral-active protection without the density of traditional mineral sunscreens. It took 10 years and over 300 formulas/samples for us to perfect this formulation. We were committed to “not settling” and pushed the boundaries to make a product that worked for the entire spectrum of skin tones, from the fairest to the richest.
Should I wear sunscreen or SPF daily?
Yes! SPF or sunscreen should be applied every morning as the final step in your skincare routine and before sun exposure. No matter your skin tone, everyone’s skin needs to be protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays even when it’s cloudy. Not to mention, a daily SPF can also protect your skin from the visible signs of aging and hyperpigmentation. It’s also important to note that if you’re using corrective skincare products that contain AHAs or Retinol, your skin could be more sensitive to sun exposure. As a result, you should make sure you’re applying an SPF when using such products.
Do your mineral SPFs contain Zinc Oxide nanoparticles?
No, both of our mineral sunscreens, ShineBlock™ Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 and Sheerglow™ Even Tone Daily Defense Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30 are formulated with non-nano Zinc Oxide.
What does “non nano” formula mean for ShineBlock?
This sunscreen is formulated with finely milled Zinc Oxide so when the formula is applied, it sits on top of the skin. The particles are “non nano” meaning they are not small enough to penetrate the skin, which is considered to be better for your body.
What is the difference between chemical and physical (mineral) SPFs?
Chemical: May include - Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octisalate, Octocrylene, Homosalate and Octinoxate
Physical: Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide
How They Protect the Skin
Chemical: Neutralize UV rays before they can damage the skin. Ingredients are absorbed by top layers of the skin to filter the UVB/UVA rays and convert them into heat, neutralizing them.
Physical: Reflect UV rays. Ingredients form a barrier on the surface of the skin that helps reflect UV rays away from the skin.
Chemical: Depending on the formulation, chemical sunscreens may be easier to rub into the skin and less likely to leave a white cast. Tend to be better for water & sweat resistance. Tend to be thinner and easier to spread.
Physical: Depending on the formulation, mineral sunscreens may be thicker and difficult to fully blend into the skin, leaving a white cast. Tend to be less irritating and better for sensitive or acne-prone skin. Last longer when in direct UV light, but not when wet or sweating.
