A Glowing Accolade

Our #3 The Tinted Serum SPF50+ has been voted Best Serum with SPF at the inaugural Oprah Daily Sun O-wards.

A celebration of diversity and excellence in sun care, Oprah Daily embarked on the formidable task of rigorously testing hundreds of sunscreens for their first annual Sun O-wards. Seeking to highlight the dangers of both sun exposure and UV, blue and infrared light, Oprah Daily engaged editors and an expert panel of top dermatologists to deliver a group of standout solar protectors that satisfied a broad range of skin tones, skin types, lifestyles and supremely high standards.

“I’ll admit that I’m not always great about wearing SPF—but then I found this serum,” says Oprah Daily Contributing Lifestyle Editor Holly Carter. “My hyperpigmentation is much improved since using the zinc-oxide, oil-based formula daily—that’s a huge win for me. It does take a minute for it to fully blend into my darker complexion, but it perfectly primes my skin for foundation.”

Among Oprah Daily’s thorough evaluation, RATIONALE shines as one of the esteemed award winners. We are thrilled to accept Best Serum with SPF for our #3 The Tinted Serum SPF50+.

A Meticulous Testing Process

The editors at Oprah Daily meticulously evaluated myriad sunscreens across various environments such as the beach, city and farm, as well as situations that included hikes, races, swims—even long office days. Their standards were strict: each sunscreen had to offer SPF 30 or higher, deliver broad-spectrum protection and undergo testing by multiple staff members. When applying, details on consistency, scent, blendability, finish, endurance, packaging and effectiveness were all observed. Additionally, an expert panel of five leading dermatologists were consulted for their recommendations and insights.
