Brief: best physical/mineral sunscreen I have tried as it absorbs well, doesn’t leave a very obvious grey/white sheen on skin and no harsh additives (sulfates, parabens, silicones).
Packaging: cute and easy to dispense sunscreen, easily fits into any handbag. Not very much sunscreen considering the price. I’d like a larger size and recyclable material as I wear sunscreen everyday.
Texture: smooth creamy consistency, really absorbs well and you can wear it as a primer. It didn’t make my make-up slide and was definitely not greasy, and mattified my combo skin.
Scent: only noticeable at the start, it smells like old boiled cabbage to me - but it really does fade away after 30 seconds. My nose is very sensitive, so unsure if other reviewers may have had a different batch.
Overall: I have dry combo sensitive skin, this sunscreen absorbs well but please know that zinc is a natural astringent (as in absorbs moisture), so my skin became very dry after 3 hours. I had to wash the sunscreen off, and use a balm to replenish my skin again. It also did give me a slightly grey look (on brown skin though) - not a fan of the grey sheen from physical sunblocks.
I returned the product to try supreme screen (a chemical sunscreen, which i’m not a fan of, but my skin could not handle the physical sunscreens including this one).
