Top Questions See all 5 Q&A
I'm a really, really pasty complected woman. Since I have to avoid the sun for long periods of time, my skin tone doesn't change a whole lot with the seasons. Especially now that I've been using sunscreen consistently for several years. I've been searching for the perfect BB cream or tinted moisturizer/sunscreen to even out my skin tone and blend with my concealer/other makeup - but it's been SO HARD to find anything that matches my super duper white skin. I have always loathed foundation, as it is too heavy, and I tend to sweat it off when I wear it. Sunscreen definitely stays on my face/skin a lot longer, as does regular moisturizer. On first glance, the tint wasn't the right match for me. Once I blended it in well, it didn't contrast with my skin color AT ALL. It's not a terribly drastic tint, so it's more than likely appropriate for many different tones.
I was a little taken aback when I opened the bottle and discovered that it was WICKED WATERY. There's got to be a reason for that, and upon reading the instructions, noticed it said to "shake well". I do believe the consistency is so thin because this sunscreen contains ingredients that are natural. Because it was so watery, I ended up with FAR TOO MUCH on my hand - yet I learned through that mistake that a little of this goes a long way.
It feels soft and silky, and doesn't sit on your skin like normal sunscreen, which is wonderful. However, I'm questioning whether or not this will work for me in the summer weather, when I will need it most! That remains to be seen, obviously. Fingers crossed!
For those with sensitivities, this product is entirely appropriate! I have issues with some sunscreens because of ingredients that not only make me breakout, they make my face BURN! I also have issues with scents in products, and the only scent I can smell is a hint of coconut or something of that nature. Whether or not you'll tolerate this product really depends on what your needs are.
Once I got into my routine, I forgot about the fact that I had applied this to my face. It ended up blending in quite seamlessly with my concealer, and while it doesn't appear like it would go well with my skin tone, it is so light that the tint isn't as blatantly obvious as some other similar brands! Overall, I'm impressed with this product. Not quite as much as Coola, but it's a close second!
