Description of the reviewer
I have oily acne prone skin.

Why it works?
It is a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30. It contains photostable ingredients such as mexoryl /Ecamsule so the sunscreen does not degrade due to sun exposure and maintains the same UV protection throughout.

- This sunscreen is water-resistant which is good especially in summer when it can get a bit sweaty.
- It is hard to find sunscreens which look good under makeup however this sunscreen has a mattifying effect so you do not need to worry about your makeup as it acts as a good primer.
-It can be applied onto the face.
-The sunscreen is light and does not feel heavy on the skin.
-It retails for under £20 pounds which is great for such a good sunscreen.
-It is Paraben free and hypoallergenic.
- It is broad spectrum it contains UVA and UVB protection.
- Unlike most sunscreens it did not leave an oily white cast on my face.

- This product contains fragrance and alcohol which are both irritants.
- Contains a number of moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. So it is both mattifying and hydrating.
- It does contain a few acnegenic ingredients such as cetyl alcohol but for me personally it did not make me to break out.
