There’s no shortage of celebs with skincare lines, but it’s rare to find one that’s actually worth the hype. Tennis pro Naomi Osaka’s line, KINLÒ, was created for skin of color. 

The brand’s name was inspired by Osaka’s Japanese and Haitian heritage. It translates to gold, and the company’s motto of “stay golden.” KINLÒ joins the market alongside brands, like Black Girl Sunscreen, that are rich in ingredients.

There are quite a few reasons to love this brand, but especially if you’re a traveler here’s why you might want to add these to your cart.

It’s Specifically for Skin of Color

KINLÒ was created for Black and brown skin. There are certain needs specific to those with melanin. That means the skincare line addresses common concerns, like dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also means it doesn’t leave behind a white cast. Rich ingredients, like jojoba and grapeseed oils, moisturize, while oatmeal extract is soothing. The brand’s dermatology director, Dr. Naana Boakye shares tips on the company’s website that focuses heavily on maintaining skin health and debunking myths around darker skin. 

It’s Perfect for Common Travel Skincare Issues

Sunburns can be pretty common and way too many people don’t reapply sunscreen on a regular basis, but especially when traveling. KINLÒ’s line has several products to combat those woes. There’s an entire suncare line that includes a Golden Rays sunscreen with an SPF of 50+ that comes in tints light, medium, or deep. The mineral sunscreen is even reef-safe. There’s also a sunscreen stick that’s perfect for reapplication and quick touch ups on the go.

If you’ve ever had a sunburn, then you know how painful that can be. For a bit of relief, the brand’s Soothing Aloe Gel is packed with green tea extract, glycerin and allantoin. The formula soothes without feeling sticky or leaving a residue on the skin.

Choice of Three Tints 

Finally, a sheer sunscreen is always appreciated, but these come in three tints. Choose light, medium or deep for a slight hint of color that looks great on brown skin. This is a perfect way to highlight your tanned skin from your recent Caribbean getaway or enhance your existing color.

Osaka’s products can be purchased individually, but there are also some that come in a convenient bundle, so you can just throw them in your toiletry bag and go.
