I’ve been trying to find more affordable sunscreens this year so that people have no excuse to not use SPF! This led me to the Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30. I have many thoughts on this so let’s get started
Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30 is a cream formula and chemical based SPF. It has niacinamide and shea butter to protect and moisturise the skin.
As usual, I use SPF as the last step in my AM routine. I do not like this SPF at all! The only good thing about this is the fact that its 100% invisible on dark skin. So here are my issues with it:
- It’s supposed to be moisturising but I find that it actually makes my skin feel dry. I have used it with and without a moisturiser underneath and it’s still the same. I have the one for normal to oily skintypes which is my skin type!
- It’s a matte finish and I usually prefer dewy/luminous/glowy finish
- It’s a bit difficult to blend around the hairline. In my demo, you can see some white patches around my hairline even though I’m trying to blend it in.
- For an SPF, I find the jar packaging a bit odd. It’s going to be exposed to air and light so much that I wonder if it will still be effective after a while.
- The SPF doesn’t state if it’s broad-spectrum but after looking at the ingredients it does protect against both UVA & UVB- THIS SHOULD BE ON THE PACKAGING!
- They call this a protecting boost but I’m not sure why? Apart from niacinamide I don’t see any other special ingredients?

I am happy that its invisible on dark skin but in terms of everything else – I’m disappointed. I was hoping to find another good SPF for under a tenner but I guess not!
I wouldn’t recommend this as I have used much better SPFs under £10!
Revolution Skincare Protecting Boost SPF30 is £10 in Boots
