Lean Screen SPF 50+ Mattifying Zinc
Our most-requested skinscreen ever, Lean Screen is a zinc-only mineral SPF50+ that doesn’t look or feel gross on the skin. That’s right, it won’t feel heavy, you won’t look like a cricketer, and sensitive skin won’t have a bitch fit. You’re welcome!
Been searching high and low for a mineral-only SPF that you’ll actually want to wear? Our Lean Screen, with her zinc-only SPF50+, fragrance-free formula, hits different. She won’t make your skin all sticky, yucky or heavy, but she will soothe sensitive types and leave a subtle matte finish in her wake – perfect for anyone with oily or reactive skin, or those that just prefer a physical sunscreen.
Every damn day, even when you’re staying indoors (srsly we mean it)! Apply as the final step in your skincare routine, right after your moisturiser and before your makeup. We recommend at least five pumps to cover your face and ears (don’t forget about those!).
Zinc – Nothing more, nothing less. Zinc oxide protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays while working as a soothing anti-inflammatory to reactive, angry skin.
Pentavitin – Think of this plant-derived ingredient as a refreshing hit of hydration for your face, so you’re moisturising and protecting it at the same time. Side effects include plump, juicy skin and a solid sense of self-satisfaction.
Kakadu Plum – Did you know this Aussie native has 50 times more vitamin C than an orange? Allow us to be Kakadu Plum’s hype girl for a sec – she’s hydrating, she’s brightening and she’s chock-full of antioxidants. Consider KP that gal at the bar who watches your drink when you go to the bathroom – she’ll guard your skin against all those annoying free radicals that just love to hassle your pretty face (nope, not on her watch!).

Lean Screen SPF 50+ Mattifying Zinc
I'm not sure why, but this sunscreen is not matte on me. I have combo skin (oily t-zone, normal everywhere else), and it left me with a natural finish, leaning towards dewy. I'm not saying this is a bad thing, just not what I was expecting. It also has a very thick consistency, so you have to pat on instead of rub! It doesn't feel heavy once its on your skin though.
I have tried several mineral sunscreens for my sensitive skin. This one is ok. Too matte for letting powder makeup sit nicely on top, but ok for liquid makeup. Good for sensitive skin, not good for people with dry skin.
It might be thicker in texture than your average sunscreen but remember this is mineral zinc. Compared to what was previously on the market this product has made leaps and bounds. It was easy to apply and felt weightless on my skin. I don’t wear makeup, so not sure how it goes in that area. I love that it didn’t leave a greasy sheen. I completely forgot I was wearing it, which is exactly what I want in a sunscreen. No odour/fragrance is yet another bonus. I only use it on weekends, so I’m not facing the cost concern others have had. It’s definitely a winner and I will purchase again.
Absolutely love this product! Have super sensitive skin & been on specialist medications meant I had to protect my skin from UV but it easily reacted to lotions etc. This is brilliant!!! Skin never felt better!! Dewy look is lovely & I wear with just a little powder foundation over top!
