Effectiveness Rating (Out of 10, per property)
|Claim 1: Provide strong UV filtering system for complete and long-lasting protection against UVA/UVB rays and environmental aggressors||6/10||I don’t doubt the product’s high SPF and PA values, but I’m not sure about the long-lasting part. It seems be be gone by mid-day, perhaps because of the oil on my face. Thus, my face is almost always left without much protection during lunch time (when I’m out in the sun hunting for food).|
|Claim 2: Non-greasy||8/10||This sunscreen is one of the first cream-type that I have tried that really wasn’t greasy or thick! It’s is not matte either, but definitely doesn’t feel like an additional layer on top of my skin. In fact, if I only use toner and moisturizer beneath this, my face is semi-matte!|
|Claim 3: Brighten skin tone||5/10||Not quite so for my case. Not much change in my skin tone.|
|Smell & Texture||8/10||Smells nice! There is a very mild sunscreen smell, but other than that, I quite like the smell. Texture and colour-wise, it is a very light peach-coloured cream that doesn’t add any colour to your face once applied.|
|Packaging||7/10||Pretty standard packaging for creams – squeeze tube. Hygienic and easy to use.|
|Others: Washing off||8/10||Doesn’t require specific removers; normal cleanser would get rid of it. Purity with Clarisonic ensures a clean sweep.|

I pretty much like this sunscreen! It’s my favourite so far in terms of texture (not too thick, not too drying, not greasy). I also love that it has so many natural extracts and un-harmful ingredients! It also didn’t break me out!
The gripes I have with this are:
1. Price (for this price, I’ve switched to Shiseido Perfect UV Protector!)
2. Because of the nature of my skin, I think my natural oils clear off the sunscreen pretty quickly. Hence, I don’t seem to see its effectiveness. Or perhaps it’s because of the number of products I use before layering this on, that I need a drier sunscreen (trying Shiseido Perfect UV Protector, dry milky texture).
I will definitely keep this in mind in future when I’m thinking of changing sunscreen again. I truly like it and perhaps when my face is less oily, or when I’m prepping my face with lesser products, I’ll come back to this!
