Laminaria Japonica Extract
Aloe Barbadensis Extract
I have oily-dehydrated skin, and I had been looking for a fungal-acne safe sunscreen for quite some time, and since I live in a very hot, humid tropical climate, the environment is very good for fungal acne growth. I've tried the Skin Aqua Moisture Milk, but it worsened my fungal acne and caused some CCs on my cheeks, possibly because it was too greasy for me and the combination of some ingredients rather than an individual ingredient in that sunscreen triggered the FA.
I patch tested this for 4 days, then started to use this all over my face. I've been using it for the last 2 months. The texture is very light, no white cast, and just great for the weather here. I've noticed my previous sunscreen from Clinique left ugly traces when I sweat, but this sunscreen doesn't do that. It's also great to use under makeup. Furthermore, the other sunscreen that I've tried emphasizes the dry patches on my cheeks or either makes my skin looks greasy or both, but this one doesn't.
The only complaint I have is the fragrance in it. I wish SNP would just remove it. Yes, it smells nice, but I also suspect it is the culprit that causes my skin to feel a bit of a burning sensation for the first few minutes when I apply it whenever I compromised my skin barrier. But if you don't have a compromised skin barrier and don't mind the fragrance, this is really the perfect sunscreen.
I have a combination skin, oily in T area and dry around the cheek. last year i had breakout around the nose and cheek. it make my skin a little bit sensitive. i went to the dermatologist and use their sunscreen. since i did not want to rely on dermatologist. i search for sunscreen that did not cause breakout, or fungal acne. i found this probably safe for my sensitive skin. but the ingredients listed are too few. but nevertheless i bought it. they came along with the small sunscreen which i can brought everywhere. the sunscreen did a pretty good job of not making my forehead too oily. although it will oily around 6 hour, overall it does not make me like a disco ball. the cheek area did not feel dry at all. i have not had any major breakout. just a zits here and there. but the thing is fungal acne. i do not know if it is because of my moisturizer or my sunscreen. but it blend pretty well.
probably gonna repurchase it. but i want to try other sunscreen. but i have to be careful or it will be a major breakout again or fungal acne.
