Rose From Above SPF35 Mineral Sunscreen is the newest addition to our SPF selection. This powerhouse product is designed to be a soothing primer, skin barrier protector, and tinted moisturizer with SPF in one. But how does it compare to our best-selling Resting Beach Face SPF30 Sunscreen Serum? Is one better than the other? Both provide effective sun protection but have different skincare benefits.
Skincare + suncare benefits
First up, Resting Beach Face (RBF). This cult fave is a daily moisturizing serum + sun protector in one. Its hero ingredients are hyaluronic acid and Pentavitin®, which replenish hydration levels to help restore skin’s suppleness throughout the day. Meanwhile, it’s packed with antioxidant-rich spinach and green tea extract — plant-powered ingredients that fight free radicals and strengthen skin’s natural defense systems.
On the other hand, Rose From Above (RFA) is a great skin primer + barrier protector. Harnessing the power of upcycled rose oil, it creates a soothed, smoothed, and moisturized canvas. It also contains a unique combination of plant squalane, ceramides and antioxidant-rich plant extracts that strengthen the skin barrier and keep external aggressors at bay.
Texture + feel
Because RBF is a serum-type, hydrating SPF serum, its texture is lightweight, fast-absorbing, and leaves no white cast on all skin tones. This makes it easy to re-apply over make-up (use a make-up sponge and dab!) and feels like a nice drink for your face. You’ll notice an immediate glowy finish!
Similarly, RFA has a lightweight, fast-absorbing texture for a mineral sunscreen for the face, but its formula feels more primer-like and smoothing. With a subtle tint and semi-matte finish, RFA makes for a ‘skin-but-better’ base layer that works excellently as a primer for make-up, or on its own for natural coverage. It’s best for those with medium to olive skin tones.
At Everyday Humans, we strive to create skincare that is inclusive for humans of all types and tones. If you’re a human who wants a daily moisturizer that does more, then RBF is great for you. It is especially recommended for those looking for a dewy, hydrated look.
For those who need extra soothing properties, RFA is your best bet. Since it’s super gentle and powered by non-nano zinc oxide-based protection, it’s a great sunscreen for sensitive skin
and won’t cause any irritation. Plus, ingredients like upcycled rose oil add a layer of comfort. But of course, all skin types can enjoy this multi-use primer.
