Cue glitter cannons: Within just a few months of launching last Spring, our great protector became not just a best-seller but the #1 sunscreen, voted by a VIP judging panel.
Respected review site beautyheaven and its beauty-obsessed community road test and rate hundreds of new products every year as part of their prestigious annual Glosscar Awards. And we couldn’t be more stoked to share that our Australian-made-and-tested Barrier Reef Daily Facial Shield SPF50+ won Best New Sunscreen in the recent 2022 beautyheaven Glosscar Awards.
Launched in time for Spring/Summer 2021, Barrier Reef quickly became a best seller — thanks to you making it the MVP of your Roe Routine. A clean, mineral formulation powered by Zinc Oxide and a nourishing support crew of antioxidants (take a bow, Niacinamide and Kakadu Plum), it’s dependable daily skin protection for all skins (including sensitive types) that’s free of parabens, chemical sunscreen absorbers and is entirely reef safe and cruelty free.
But enough from us, here’s what some of beautyheaven’s judging panel of VIP members had to say about Barrier Reef and why they rated it above and beyond the other nominees to win the Glosscar:
🥇 “I love that it's a very clean sunscreen with added benefits to hydrate, repair and protect the skin. I loved using this during really hot outdoor days and felt really comfortable wearing it. I would highly recommend it to everyone.”
🏆 “The texture of this sunscreen is beautiful. Super absorbent and acted as a great primer for my mineral foundation. 10/10 would buy again.”
🥇 “I have super sensitive skin so the first thing that I look for is something that doesn’t irritate it. This was non irritating and I didn’t find it overly greasy which is usually the case. The other thing I look for in face sunscreen is whether it can layer with my other products I found it was able to be layered you just have to let it dry a bit in between the layers. “
🏆 “I’ve been on the hunt for an SPF that goes well under makeup, and this fits the brief perfectly. It’s not greasy at all but has enough slip to spread a small amount on my face without dragging on my skin. it doesn’t break up my foundation/concealer/cream cheek products at all, which is one of the first things I look for when checking my skin during the day. It’s one of my favourites and you get a lot of product in the tube.”
