I got this for the beach, hoping for good sun protection for my very fair and sensitive skin. Five minutes after applying my face was stinging so badly I had to remove it, which was tricky given how thick it is. My face continued to sting for a solid hour, and the next day I had a terrible rash. What is most frustrating is I haven't been able to find a full ingredients list ANYWHERE, so I don't know what additive I reacted to
I have tried most every physical sunscreen for face/moisturiser with SPF out there, and this is one to stick with. It doesn't leave a white sheen, it has a lovely milky texture to it and it works. I use Inika powder foundation over the top.
This product is amazing, I can finally say I have found my holy grail sunscreen after many years and dollars wasted. This stuff is incredible, I’ve been on the search for a physical sunscreen that is not thick and heavy and greasy (the feel of this is totally opposite to invisible zinc for reference), as most physical sunscreens tend to sit badly under makeup on me, this product ticks all the boxes. I have combination skin and most sunscreens make me super oily and they just feel like an extra layer of grease on my face, even ones designed for oilier skin types. This sunscreen is so lightweight, I use medik8 b5 serum first then this on top during the day and it works perfectly. You do need to rub it in well as with all physical sunscreens it will leave a white cast if you don’t, but once rubbed it the whiteness disappears and my makeup applies beautifully. I don’t mind paying the price for this product as it really is fantastic, I hope medik8 never stop making this.
