I always use this SPF in the cooler months, I need something more protective for my fair skin during the hot summers. It doesn't break me out (a miracle!) or leave a white cast and while fairly moisturizing, I do find I need to wear a hydrating serum underneath for my 40+ skin.
I'm relatively demanding when it comes to sun care on my face.
Besides the fact that it should protect my face from sunburn, it should have a light texture, not form a film under which I sweat, and it should be colorless and easy to apply.
So far I've made compromises - I have two products that leave a minimal white tint at first but that dissipates in no time. I have products that are tinted and are like light makeup - which isn't an option for me on a daily basis because I don't like bleeding.
The most important criterion - namely that I simply like to apply the sunscreen because it is like one of my care products - has so far not been able to be fulfilled.
You would never guess that the sun prep is a sun product. The only similarly pleasant texture in a sun product is that Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 and even that doesn't quite manage to get close to this fluid.
There is no whitening, not even a slight one when applying. The product feels slightly cool on the skin without being drying in any way. I apply quite a few different layers of product to my face and the sun prep is my last. There are no problems with rolling off although the SPF layer that I apply to finish is not thin. The skin care feeling is super pleasant, the tolerability is top and my skin was well protected from the sun in everyday life (of course I applied additional protection if I knew that I was going to be in the sun for a long time).
Because of the not inconsiderable price, I had the fluid on my list for a long time, but only brought myself to buy it this summer. It's very long lasting (have been using my first bottle for over 2 months) and will be one of those products that stays firmly in my facial routine.
Anyone who is toying with the product but is still hesitant should definitely order a sample.
First had a sample to test the compatibility because I have very sensitive skin. Since I also get sunburned extremely quickly, the search for good sun protection for my face is always very difficult, and most products worsen my already difficult complexion. This product right here is so enjoyable! It whitens zero and provides pleasant moisture. I also think it fills up the pores a bit. On days when there is no extreme heat/solar radiation, the cream is sufficient for me, it also works well as a base for mineral foundation. It's a shame that the cream isn't available with a higher SPF.
