What is the best way to apply Daydream Screen SPF50?
Whatever works for you TBH; whether that’s haphazardly applying with your fingers as you rush for the tube, or Vi’s Daydream Sponge with is coming FREE with every order (while stocks last). Daydream is versatile!


What are the key skin-sweetening ingredients?
Rice Bran Wax – Packed full of antioxidants to sooth and hydrate the skin and fight signs of premature aging.

Saccharide Isomerate – Plant derived humectant to replenish and moisturise the skin for 72 hrs.

Iron Oxides – What gives Daydream its tint! Helps increase protection against visible light and UVA radiation – both of which can cause skin pigmentation.

UVA & UVB Filters ­­- These bad boys are doing all the heavy lifting when it comes to protecting you from UV rays. We’re also using the latest and greatest filters (Tinosorbs S, M, Uvinul T) so this means they’re extra effective.

How much Daydream Screen should I wear to get the full SPF50 protection?
When it comes to SPF, more is more; but to get specific about it, ¼ teaspoon is recommended to get the full SPF50 protection. Some people can apply this amount of Daydream Screen no worries but for others, you might like a more sheer finish. With this in mind, we put Daydream through a few extra tests to ensure she was up to the task of giving you suspiciously flawless skin and providing enough protection.

TEST 1 – Layering - One layer of ½ the recommended dose of Supreme Screen was applied to the skin, followed by ½ the recommended dose of Daydream Screen on top. The average SPF rating with this application method was 65. IRL, this is equivalent to 2 pumps of Supreme and then the same amount of Daydream.

TEST 2 – Mixing – ½ the recommended dose of Supreme was mixed with ½ the recommended dose of Daydream Screen. The mixture was applied to the skin and the average SPF rating with this application was 61.4. IRL this would be mixing 2 pumps of Supreme with the equivalent amount of Daydream.

The extra testing on Daydream proves that you can wear less Supreme Screen if you’re applying Daydream over the top. The test even shows that the SPF protection was higher. Having said this, our recommendations are just that: recommendations. Our motto when it comes to sun protection is “something is always better than nothing”.


Can I mix a tint/drop/other product into my Daydream Screen or other sunscreen?
Daydream Screen aside, you might be tempted to mix something with a little coverage into your SPF to get the best of both worlds. For the SPF to work though, it needs to form an even layer on the skin. Think of it like nail polish; if you mix something in, it can go streaky and patchy.

Our SKINSCREENS™ were tested alone to get their SPF rating, without your personal cocktail of face oil, liquid highlighter or bronzing drops mixed through. So we don’t know how these (albeit fun) additions will affect the formula. They could destabilise the UV filters or just dilute the SPF, all of which leads to you not properly future-proofing your face. Lucky we’ve tested Daydream thoroughly though… but we don’t recommend you do this with non-UV products as they just haven’t had the sufficient testing.


Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. Avoid prolonged high-risk sun exposure. Wear a hat, protective clothing and sunglasses when exposed to the sun. Re-apply frequently.
