Dermaprotect has 16.2% zinc oxide which is high compared to others in the market. Zinc oxide is an inorganic, broad- spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA I, UVA II, and UVB. It is considered to be the broadest range sunscreen! Pretty exciting, right? The Dermaprotect is an excellent sunscreen plus it’s tinted so no white cast. This acts as a foundation since I find the coverage adequate. This is by no means cheap so I got worried when the tint appeared too dark, but it transformed into the perfect match after a few minutes. Zinc oxide can be a bit drying and I experienced that on my under-eye area. Using a moisturizer before application is a must. The sunscreen is silky, smooth, and can double as a primer. It’s fragrance-free but has an earthly scent. Took me a couple of days to get used to it. I see that the packaging for this has changed, maybe reformulated too(?). I love this but not yet an HG since I am having second thoughts on repurchasing. But I love it really.
Light and moisturizing without making skin oily. Spreads easily and dries quickly. This was a favorite and I used it for days straight, but I got tired of the scent. I wish it came in an unscented version. I still use this but switch it around with my dozen other sunscreens.
A repurchase and will continue to buy this. A truly clear SPF that glides on smoothly and disappears into the skin. It is siliconey which I did not love it at first but tolerated it and soon fell in love with the texture and application. This primer-type SPF goes well under powder and powder foundation. It does not dry matte on my oily skin, but I have no trouble wearing it alone for a satin finish. I use about 1/4 teaspoon for both my face and neck.
*It has been reformulated for 2020. Have yet to try the new one.
