 In an easy squeeze tube with a long nozzle, the SPF is perfect to pinpoint where you want to dispense the product. However, you won't be able to store this upright due to the nozzle.

There is no heavy scent and the gel formula does take a few seconds to work into your skin. But then gives your skin a lovely moisture barrier and a perfect base for makeup.

For acne-prone and sensitive skin, this is a must-try SPF. It's moisturising, there's no irritation near the eyes (very important for me as I have eczema), there's no white cast or that sticky feeling. It makes your makeup apply nicely too and can be applied ontop makeup during the day. I also haven't suffered from any breakouts or clogged pores so that is acne-prone skin approved.

At the end of the day I do get a little sheen on my skin (t-zone area) but in a healthy hydrated skin way and overall it makes me want to reach for this easy hydrating SPF daily.

  1. I have sensitive skin, might check it out myself x

  2. The consistency looks good for my skin type and tone. I have to have SPF in all of my skincare even in winter. This sounds really soothing!


    1. super soothing! The gel texture makes it sink in fast x
