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. :)
While it product was lightweight and dried quickly, it left a white cast and did not sit well under my foundation. Despite using setting powder I had lots of creasing. I do not recommend.

I had high hopes for this but it leaves my skin feeling tight. I do have dry prone skin so it can be patchy and leaves a white cast around my hairline no matter what, I’ve started mixing it with rose hip oil to stop it looking cakey. I won’t be repurchasing.

I found the Neostrata Sheer Physica Protection SPF50 to have a beautiful creamy texture and great coverage. It has a slight tint which means I didn't feel the need to wear makeup, perfect in the hot weather. I always feel well moisturised with this product. The only drawback for me was the matt finish. I prefer more of a glow. Having said that, I still would recommend it.
