Can You Use Powder Sunscreen Solo?

I must say that I really like using the TARTE Tarteguard Mineral Powder Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as an additional form of sunscreen. I found it difficult to apply the Tarteguard Mineral Powder liberally enough while still looking natural to comfortably use this as my main and sole source of sunscreen. I do like to use it to set my foundation I just couldn't use enough of the powder to know that I was full covered, but I will definitely use it on days when I am outside to help mattify any oilness. I like to layer my sunscreen so this goes perfect with that, I apply a moisturizer with SPF, then my foundation with SPF, then the Tarte Tarteguard Mineral Powder with SPF. The applicator on the end of the tube makes it very easy to apply on the go. The powder does have a very light vanilla scent which dissipates quite quickly. If you are looking for an additional boost of sunscreen that travels well this product is a good option in my opinion.

    Heck yes! I think that it's so cool that all you have to do is simply push the button in and it pushes out a powder! I wonder what Tarte will come up with next... The future holds some wonderful things

    This is a great concept. It is my opinion that powder sunscreens can be very effective. The pigment mayalso scatter the sun's rays. Depending on what pigments are in it may also sparkle just a bit. This seems purposeful and would be a nice addition to my make up collection. Thank you for an excellent and honest review !
