APPLICATION: Very easy to blend in and cover a lot of skin.

FINISH: Glowy. Could be borderline greasy if you’re not into very moisturizing sunscreens.

FEEL: Light and Moisturized. Doesn’t feel like I have anything heavy on my face.

STINGS EYES? Yes.

WHITECAST?
Minimal. I don’t notice it if I were to wear it on its own outside. However when I was at the gym, it was a tad noticeable that I was a lot paler than my body under false lighting.

WATER RESISTANT? No.

SKIN BENEFITS?
Gives my skin extra moisture and I don’t feel as dehydrated by the end of the day.
Note: My boyfriend applied this to his freshly shaved face and it stung him a bit.

UNDER MAKEUP:
So far my favourite to use under makeup. My skin is nice and smooth after I use it, so adding my CC Cream on top adds to the healthy look my skin is showing.

WHERE TO BUY:
I got mine at Amazon.ca for $32, but the price fluctuates. However, their other sunscreens seem to be around $40 as I write this.
Dermstore for Americans

This is my favourite sunscreen I have EVER purchased. Love the amount I get and how cosmetically elegant it truly is! I definitely want to repurchase it, but it’s very difficult to buy for Canadians. I may need to hunt for a different staple that’s easier to buy, otherwise I would definitely repurchase an Elta Md sunscreen!

  1. You can also purchase it at the Blitz Facial Bars in Toronto. That is where my husband gets it from. I love it too! I also use the Shiseido facial sunscreen but it is a lot more expensive.
