I notice the SQN Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 seem to be more liquify compared to other sunscreens out there.

Loving. SQN Brighter Day Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen ! I'm guilty of not really liking or being a big fan of sunscreens , even though we Estheticians endorse sunscreens in our skincare routines , at least I wasn't a fan until I reviewed this particular Sunscreen.
I like the texture , which is of importance to me.
So often , sunscreens can be too heavy , irritating and even mask like , which was why I personally didn't get into buying or wearing this product for myself. That being said , the SQN. brand sunscreen is lightweight and it readily... Read more

As a beauty professional for the past 15 years, I can say that sunscreen is an absolute must in any skin care regimen or beauty routine. SQN brings something new to this with a formula that you can easily see is high quality and great ingredients - the active ingredient being Zinc Oxide, along with triglycerides and antioxidants. The amazing packaging was my initial reaction, but the product consistency and the quick absorption without the white residue you normally see with SPF is what really sold me. This SPF product has a smooth finish and is quite... Read more

This is the best sunscreen I have tried in a long time if not the best ! It has a initial aroma when working into the skin that is not like your usual sunscreen that can be overbearing and linger especially with a physical sunscreen that sits in the surface of the skin. I cant quite put my finger on it but I believe its the Pinus Cembra Wood Extract. This sunscreen not only protects the skin with a SPF 30 it has a universal tint that results in a subtle glow. Its perfect for a no makeup day when... Read more

Thank you so much for reading my review. I have about 10 years in the beauty industry and thank you so much to Beautytap for sending me this product for my honest review and opinion. To start off with I have quite oily skin. I am careful not to use any products that are too heavy or too oily. Sunscreen is an especially difficult product to find that doesn't make my face too oily during the day and make all of my makeup melt off. I feel as if this product was perfect for my needs. When I applied it,... Read more

Hands down one of the best sunscreens I've tried in ages! I am very picky with sunscreens and have been spoiled with French and Korean sunscreens the last decade which I believe are some of the best. Here we have obviously a product developer end formulation team who know what they're doing. This is a pure zinc mineral sunscreen that goes on flawlessly without any white Castor residue. It definitely has a an amazing glow and radiance but if you are oily you will still enjoy this feeling. The smell is amazing and does not have any aroma of a... Read more

When a new sunscreen comes my way, you can bet I’ll put it through its paces. As a professional skincare writer for 12 years – and three-time skin cancer survivor – I have high expectations. The Brighter Day Hydrating SPF 30 from new brand SQN gets high marks in my book, and here’s why:

☀️Texture: Brighter Day is the most watery sunscreen product I’ve tried in 2021. I normally use the three-finger method to ensure full facial coverage but found it best to apply a quarter-to-half dollar sized amount to the palm of my hand instead. It spreads easily with no... Read more
