Review: Heimish Artless Glow Base SPF 50+ PA+++

Review: Heimish Artless Glow Base SPF 50+ PA+++


A sunscreen that lets you glow in the sun? SIGN ME UP. It’s always hard to find a sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white cast and is also hydrating. If you’re looking for a soft shimmer and protection from the sun, this sunscreen is for you!

The Artless Glow Base has SPF 50 UV protection, brightening properties, and has anti-wrinkling features to help prevent wrinkles. This sunscreen is the full package, honestly.

I absolutely love how hydrating this sunscreen is and how easily it melts into my skin, leaving no white cast, only a soft shimmer.


Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Octocrylene, Niacinamide, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, CI 77891 (titanium dioxide), CI 77019 (mica), PEG-100 Stearate , Hydrogenated Lecithin, Glyceryl Stearate, Beeswax, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Adenosine, Disodium Edta, Tin Oxide, Carmine, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf Extract, Origanum Majorana Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Fragrance

How to use: After your skincare routine, apply a thin layer as a primer before makeup or as a moisturizer as the last step! I love mixing this with my BB cream, giving me a glow with a light coverage.

Pro tip: After applying it on my entire face, I also like to dab more across the high points of my face (cheeks, nose, eyebrow arch) for an even stronger, yet subtle glow. You could even mix it with your highlighter!


It melts into your skin so beautifully, leaving no white streaks. The best part is, it’s not greasy or oily!

There is a very light floral scent, paired with a faint “sunscreen-like” scent but it fades away very quickly and doesn’t leave a lingering smell.


If you look carefully, you can see the small shimmers in the sun.


This is how you can glow better than any Cullen to be honest. This micro-fine shimmer really seals the deal for me. It layers so well under makeup, especially as a primer. Giving you such a subtle glow, like you’ve had a great night’s sleep.

I’ve applied this on my friends, both male and female, and I’m telling you, it’s perfect for everyone! Even on men, they’re glowing like goddesses. (As we all should be.)

Final thoughts: If you’re looking for a hydrating sunscreen without the white cast, this is for you! The shimmer is a gorgeous touch for anyone that wants a subtle glow.

If you’re in Houston, you can purchase it at Prite Skin! It’s also available on Amazon or Yesstyle for $18 or Ohlolly for $22.
