sun drops spf 50

The innovative sunscreen that blends seamlessly with your moisturizer or foundation.

Written By JAYME CYK


At VIOLET GREY, we’re serious about our sunscreen. Why, you ask? Well, we live in Los Angeles, and we also work really hard to keep our skin looking youthful. But regardless of whether you live in a city that’s always sunny or a town that never sees the sun, SPF should never be a question of “Do I need to use this today?”

Luckily, we found the answer to your sunscreen woes. Dr. Barbara Sturm, the Düsseldorf-based orthopedist, has created the ultimate in sun protection. Deemed Sun Drops, this game-changing SPF 50 can be added to your moisturizer or foundation for a seamless texture sans white cast. Blended with a complex that includes vitamin E and beta-glucan (a type of sugar), it not only protects the skin, but also promotes the regeneration of damaged skin cells. You can thank Sturm for making your skincare regimen slightly shorter.


“This product is such a good idea. You can put it on top of moisturizer or mix it in with your cream. Also, it’s not too heavy.”—Jo Strettell, makeup artist

“This is a game changer for sun protection. It eliminates the need to layer product and melts into your day cream or right onto bare skin. Nothing could be easier.”—Jeffrey Baum, makeup artist

“I’m obsessed with this product. I love the formula, the smell, the bottle, and how it is so easy to travel with. It blends perfectly into the skin and layers effortlessly with foundation!”—Matthew VanLeeuwen, makeup artist
