It does what it says! It’s like water , doesn’t feel like sunscreen at all. It smells same as other hydro boost line. The packaging is also nice for everyday n travel. Not so expensive, so win-win. Highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t like to put on sunscreen. It doesn’t leave a white cast. Absorbs into skin( melts together not really absorb) pretty quickly too. As an Asian with medium skin tone I’m really happy. Will purchase again!

I’m so glad someone made a water gel sunscreen! There are so few options for sunscreen in canada because of our regulations and this is the only one I’ve found that doesn’t make my face greasy. It works under makeup too, no white cast, the only con is when you sweat and it runs into your eyes it burns

This is an excellent sunscreen. Just like the name says it’s extremely hydrating which is great for when you’re in the sun (and really any time). It doesn’t have a strong “sunscreen” smell to it as well which is nice. If feels light weight on the skin which is nice and it absorbs well!

It is one of the best sunscreens out there if you have sensitivity to spf. This didn’t break me out one bit even thought it’s highly fragranced. It’s very affordable too I’d recommend.

I really like this sunscreen. I have dark skin, and I love the fact that it does not leave me looking like a ghost, or a grey cast. I love the fact that it has hyaluronic acid in it, so while it’s protecting my skin from the sun, it’s also hydrating my skin. The only issue I have with it is that sometimes it can be a little greasy

My go to Sunscreen on summer days, I really hate that white awful looking discoloration of my skin when I put other sunblocks, It feels hydrating on the skin like water & you don't feel that thick creamy feeling. It absorbs really quick! I love it and I'm almost out!

My favourite facial sunscreen of all time! It's lightweight, absorbs into the skin super quickly, does not leave any white cast, and doesn't cause any flashback under flash or dining lighting. It does have a slight scent to it, but nothing obnoxious. And I love how sturdy and easy to use the packaging is.

ove the smell of this products. It isn't as strong as on the hand cream in the hydro boost product line- more subtle and just as light and refreshing! Doesn't have that strong sunscreen smell and no greasy feel on hands or skin! My skin soaked it right up within 30 seconds- so you don't have to wait in fear of staining your clothes ! 

I'm not sure I would pay 15$ for this however as I do use a lot of sunscreen and would break the bank. Will use it for my face and get some cheaper stuff for the body! 

Great protection in the sun. Was out for 3 hours with only 1 application and I didn't burn!

This product is amazing. I love how it sinks into your skin like a moisturizer. It smells great too and is not sticky. Also does not irritate the skin which is very important for someone like myself who has sensitive skin!

Yes! It has SPF 50 which is great and feels like a moisturizer when you put it on, just remember to reapply every 1-2 hours when in direct sun 😎

Pretty good!! My foundation stayed on after putting this lotion on (although it’s not specifically a facial cream) it’s absorbs really well! My primer obviously is better. But I didn’t have any issues with my makeup coming off
