There’s something dynamic that happens when the worlds of beauty and film collide, especially when they’re centered around Black joy. Just in time for the summer travel season, Black Girl Sunscreen dropped a limited-edition collaboration with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”

There’s no denying the anticipation behind the Disney classic with Halle Bailey as the film’s lead, and Black Girl Sunscreen is known for its products that provide coverage without leaving a horrible white cast on melanated skin. So basically, this is Black girl celebration all around. 

The limited-edition sunscreens include two products, SPF 30 and a matte gel formula, but in a completely redesigned packaging. Black Girl Sunscreen fans are no stranger to the brand’s sleek black bottles with accents of gold, but for this go-round, The Little Mermaid packaging gives beautiful shades of purple and images of Ariel (and her beautiful red locs!) with her under the sea friends. 

“For Black Girl Sunscreen, this partnership is monumental. Being involved in Disney’s initiative to recreate a historical film means we are welcomed, seen, and invited to the table,” Shontay Lundy told Travel Noire in an exclusive quote.

The Black Girl Sunscreen founder continued, “Together, we are trailblazing paths for other Black-owned brands to partner with corporate intuitions in unimaginable ways. We are breaking barriers, pushing the limits and redefining partnerships between Black-owned brands and major conglomerates.” 

The sunscreen with its newly designed packaging isn’t just gorgeous, but it’s also a must for everyday sun protection, especially if you plan on hitting the road to a warm-weather destination this summer.

Black Girl Sunscreen Little Mermaid SPF30

The Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 is so popular among Black and brown women because unlike other products, this doesn’t leave a white cast on the skin. It’s a sheer formula that’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes and it protects against UVA and UVB rays. With ingredients that include sunflower, avocado, and jojoba oils, it’s also pretty moisturizing for the skin as well.

Black Girl Sunscreen Little Mermaid Make It Matte SPF45

The newly designed packaging is also available for the Make It Matte SPF. This also has skin-soothing and nourishing ingredients like aloe, shea butter, and coconut oil. But this formula has a more matte finish, making it great for those with oilier skin. It’s also a nice primer when worn under makeup, since it’s that just-right balance of adding a bit of moisture but with a slightly matte finish. 

Both products are available exclusively at Ulta and at 1.7 and three ounces, they’re just the right sizes for your carry-on bag.
