So so?

This was actually my first ever sunscreen when I just started learning to put together a decent routine. I bought it off from a friend the small size one, and the first thing that came to my mind was the citrus smell! Later did I know it came from the alcohol in it.

I used to love it so much, perhaps because I used only a pea size of it for my entire face because I didn't know yet the "two finger rules" of sunscreen. Now that I always use my sunscreen according to that, I realized I actually dislike this product :( It's so thick and difficult to spread, takes so much time to absorb, and has super oily finish. Now I wonder how on earth could I like a sunscreen like this in the past.

The oily finish makes my face looks even more dull so if I'm going out and about, I always try to avoid using this sunscreen. With the same (or lower) price point, I can find a better sunscreen with better texture and finish.

Goes beyond a suncscreen

This sunscreen has a lovely consistency; doesn't feel sticky or pill at all. It goes beyond a sunscreen, as it contians Hyaluronic Acid which could be moisturising. It gives me a lovely dewy sheen, without "sitting" on your face (which can make you look oily). It takes away the oilyness from my moisturiser - perhps because of the alcohol? Bit concerned it's drying me out. As others mention, it smells very strongly of alcohol which has put me off from buying it again.

The Very Best for My Oily Faced Friends

This sun cream is perfect for the summer months when my skin does not need the extra oil and moisture most sun creams bring. The only way to describe it is that it dries SO dry. If you can get over the unfortunate alcohol smell, you will find that in only a few seconds after application, you cannot feel it at all.
