The Claim: - EWG Green grade safe ingredients
- 100% Physical sunscreen with no white cast
- Perfect hydration
My take: I am so surprised that all their claims held true for me, especially the no white cast for a physical sunscreen. My number one reason for going for chemical sunscreen over physical has been because of the thick texture and the white cast often found in physical sunscreen.
Let’s talk texture. This is not as thin and elegant as some chemical sunscreens, but it’s by no means thick at all! It is easily spreadable, takes only slightly longer than a chemical sunscreen to absorb into the skin, is not sticky at all, and amazingly, leaves NO white cast, and that’s without having any tints in the formula!
My skin is a little sensitive atm due to my holiday mishap, and I can confidently say, this sunscreen does not cause me any irritation or problems.
As for moisturizing, I don’t need my sunscreen for that, as I have so many products to help with that. I have been reapplying this every couple of hours without adding any more moisturizing ingredients to help it along and it’s been fine for my combination skin. It will be interesting to see how it works out in winter.
I didn’t test how it wears under makeup, because as you know, I’ve been makeup free for months.
