“i am a dry skin, sensitive skin girly and many sunscreens have caused my face to react or have messed with my skin barrier, but this one feels like a nice moisturizer with spf. i’ve recommended to friends with oilier skin or darker skin tones and they have preferred other spfs because of the moisture and white cast, so just tread lightly if those are your concerns”
for optimal sun protection, apply 15 minutes before sun exposure. apply generously and evenly as the last step in your skincare routine and before makeup. reapply at least every 2 hours. use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating.
