acne prone, but also sensitive skin here
April 25, 2019
Preface: I was nervous about this purchase bc no sunscreen ever worked for me before. I usually get closed comedones, active zits, rashes, etc. I've tested this on both non-acne-prone areas as well as acne-prone and it didn't give me any reaction at all. Make sure you get it off your skin properly at the end of the day, obviously. I will update the review if I develop a skin reaction later down the line but so far so good.
Texture: It's a super watery texture that stays wet for a bit and then soaks in and leaves a luminous finish. My skin is always a bit dewy but sometimes sunscreens turn me into an oil slick. This one just looks like how my skin normally does, just kinda dewy. If you have dryer skin you will probably like it as well, though if you have oilier skin than me it could be too much. For reference, I do need to blot around my t-zone some days but overall my oiliness stops at looking dewy like I am well-moisturized.
Protection: Haven't burned with it yet! I'm quite fair and this protected me just fine.
Value: The tube is really small but facial sunscreens that are worth a crap are often really small as well so that is pretty standard. For something that is mild enough to keep me from breaking out, but will still protect me and has a good finish... it's worth the price for sure.
White cast?: I honestly don't see one at all but maybe my skin just isn't dark enough to show it. If you're caucasian it will be undetectable, at least that is my experience. Definitely check for video reviews on YT from channels that share your skin tone to make sure!
