Lovely and light almost invisible on the skin and yet protected!
This is definitely a strong barrier sunscreen but if I put it on before my moisturiser it goes all flaky and cracks on your skin, best to put on moisturiser first. Nothing will get through this, excellent protection.
Found it to be perfect for my fair skin. I used it on holiday and it gave me full sun protection and a smooth finnish.
I'm a sunscreen connoisseur at this rate and this particular beauty is one of the best I've tried. A warning to fellow acne sufferers, stay clear of chemical filters, I'm speaking from experience when I say that chemical sunscreens, even of the most advanced nature, trigger inflammation which in turn leads to acne. Physical sunscreens are the way forward. This one is perfect for sensitive combination skin types, it's gives a natural finish without the dreaded white cast. You'd barely even notice you're wearing any because it blends in so seamlessly. My one gripe would be I wish it was water resistant. Oh and the price of course. This is better than the skingedients spf in my opinion as the finish is more on the matte side as opposed to the former's more dewy look. It also contains anti oxidants which will help prevent free radical damage.
Tried many many spf’s this ones is really good for people with oily skin but it does make skin feel a tad tight. (I apply serum and moisturiser aswell)
Very similar to skin nerds spf which I found brilliant.. but that one is also that bit more expensive. I bought Neoatratta as I heard its similar to the skinnerd and on sale at around €23 I bought two bottles.
Would I reccomend? Yes! Absolutely. If you can afford the skinnerd brand spf- I would go with that one though. :)
