combination RosaceaAnti-AgingBlackheads+ 2
Love it

I love how it protects my skin with so little amount applied and it doesn't make my face feel oily afterwards. It is kinda hard to spread it in my face (it gets absorbed and dry fast), but still easy to use and it gives my face a nice fresh and protected feeling.

Not That Great

This is a great alternative to the chemical sunscreens that are found in every store, but compared to the sunscreens that are available to buy online, this one is not nearly as good. It provides good sun protection for those with sensitive skin and mineral sunscreens are always the better option, but this one is not easy to apply due to its low spreadability and high white cast. The sunscreen will leave you feeling sticky for hours, so I can imagine how this would not be a good it for someone with oily skin.

IMPORTANT: If you're looking for alternative face sunscreens with high SPF that you can wear every day underneath your makeup or even at the pool without leaving a white cast or leaving you feeling greasy, check out my sensitive skin sunscreen collection. A lot of sunscreens offered in the US market is are not very efficient at providing you with comfortable all day wear, so I turned to Korean brands. You can find safe sunscreens that are comfortable like Clinique, but you have to spend at least $35 dollars for a small tube. Korean brands offer a mix of chemical and mineral sunscreens that are safe to sit on top of your skin all day without breaking your bank.

YesStyle offers a large variety of sunscreens with price ranges of $7-$30 depending on brand and size. If you use the promotion code "SEASON20" at your checkout, you can get an extra 10% off!
