jao face creme sunbeam illuminator hermes hippie

"A few years ago on the blog, I had raved about the newly released Jao Brand Face Crème. At a time when finding green beauty creams was a fairly Herculean task, the Crème was a rich, indulgent treat that gave all of the sensory delights of a conventional cream moisturizer and kept my skin soft and supple even in the dead of winter.

Which is why I was thrilled when Jao Brand released a tinted SPF version of the Crème along with a sun-protecting Sunbeam Illuminator: a shimmering, golden SPF cream packed with real 24k gold mica. I bought both and have been wearing them fairly consistently for the last couple of weeks and, not surprisingly, I am in love.

The tinted Day Crème is ideal for those of you who love a heavy coverage foundation. It’s thick and rich (though not at all greasy nor pore-clogging) and provides much more coverage than my other tinted SPFs. I prefer my coverage to be virtually non-existent, so it took me a moment to adjust to the much heavier coverage of the Crème, but I think that wearers of traditional foundation will find it to be just right.

But when the Crème really shines (pun intended) is when I mix it with the Illuminator. You really only need the tiniest dab of the latter: it’s so shimmery that using too much can leave you looking a little like the Tin Man. A drop mixed in with the Crème, however, will give a radiant glow and a beautifully even complexion. The versatile Illuminator can also be used as a cream highlighter and, mixed with Jao’s delicious Goe body balm, will give you perfectly shimmering limbs.

One more thing worth noting: green beauty has a bit of a problem with catering to a wide range of skin tones. I’m hugely impressed that Day Crème comes in three shades: Light (Caucasian tones), World Shade (mid-to-high melanin tones) and Dark (dark and African tones). I know that creating dark shades in a physical SPF can’t have been easy and I’d love to hear about people’s experience with the two darker shades.

I love talking about Jao Brand because it’s such a wonderful, thoughtful brand and a green beauty pioneer, yet it seems to fly under the radar. As for the new SPFs, I think they’ll become your new, year-round BFFs."

How do I apply the Sunbeam Illuminator to my skin?

This is a totally unique product. Formulated as a cream rather than a liquid. Apply only a very small amount and pat onto cheekbones, or use fingers to apply to eyelids. Another pro tip for easier application is to layer it on top of a light oil so that it spreads easily. This product works amazingly well (when using a larger amount) mixed into either Goe Oil or any body product you might have and apply to arms, legs, and décolletage. Gives a gorgeous subtle glow.

What other ways can I wear the Sunbeam Illuminator?

The Sunbeam Illuminator is truly a one of a kind and versatile product.  

  • If you want glowy dewy skin, add a SMALL amount to any face product for a sunkissed finish. 
  • Use as a cream highlight and apply a tiny amount to your cheekbones, browbone, inner corner of the eye, and cupids bow to glow to the gods.   
  • Want to look like a supermodel on the red carpet, who doesn’t? Apply the Sunbeam Illuminator into any other body product you use (Goe Oil) to illuminate, sculpt, and even skin tone on the legs, arms, or décolletage. 

Note:  If you put the Illuminator directly onto your face and try to blend it in you will look like a white ghost. 

Can I mix Face Crème Day and Sunbeam Illuminator with other products containing oil?

Our Face Creme Day and Sunbeam Illuminator will not break down with oils. You can mix them into any product with oil to thin them and spread them out, HOWEVER, this will LOWER the SPF rating!

Is it Reef Safe? 

Our Sunbeam Illuminator is Reef Safe as we have sourced large particle uncoated Non-Nano Zinc Oxide at 20%. [If your sunscreen is zinc oxide with nano sized particles it is not reef safe. Per the New York Times, any particles smaller than 100 nanometers can be consumed by coral.]

Will this product cause flashback in photos?

Most products containing SPF have the potential to cause flashback especially products containing Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. This happens because Zinc Oxide is a white mineral powder and works by reflecting sun rays, therefore, white tends to reflect during flash photography. Keep this in mind when taking pictures with flash photography.
