I’m always on the lookout for lightweight sunscreens that work well with my oily skin.
The problem I usually have with SPF is that my skin is very oily, and sunscreen tends to sit heavy on my skin and starts running off my face when I go outside. Over the years, I have tried a lot of sunscreens – even ones targeted at oily skin – but none have been as successful as this.
I’ve been using the Black Rouge Cica Green Sun Cream for a couple of months now and it is honestly the best one for my skin that I’ve tried so far.
Here, I’ll take a more in-depth look into this sunscreen so you can discover whether or not it is right for you!

The product is paraben-free, alcohol-free and sulfate-free, but it does contain silicone (used to make the sunscreen waterproof) and isn’t safe for those who have fungal acne.
The packaging for the Black Rouge Cica Green Sun Cream is a cute pastel green colour. The 50ml tube is made of plastic, and it is easy to squeeze, so getting the product out is no problem. The tube has a twist off lid and a small opening that makes it easy to squeeze out the right amount of product.
My Experience with Black Rouge Cica Green Sun Cream
The best part about this product is how quick it is to absorb, drying to a velvety matte finish without any stickiness or tackiness. It gives me a soft matte effect that is perfect for using as a makeup base. My face feels smooth and like I’m not wearing any sunscreen at all!
For my skin, it is moisturising enough that I would be able to wear it alone without moisturiser in the summer months on hot days. It is targeted at sensitive skin and is certified as non-irritating. It is perfect for my oily skin, but I think maybe dry skin types would need some extra moisturisation if they used this.
For me, I have no whitecast from this sunscreen once it has absorbed into my skin, but I have a feeling that people with a darker skin tone could potentially have issues.
It doesn’t budge throughout the day, so you’ll need a good cleanser to take it off as it is waterproof!
For sunscreen, this is also a super affordable product. While its RRP is £26, I have often seen it on sale on YesStyle for around £10.
