Good morning! As more and more days the sun graces us with its presence and while enjoying the sunshine, we shouldn’t forget safety. I believe you are aware of all damage the sun can cause to unprotected skin. Starting with sunburn, wrinkles, sagging skin to the most serious – skin cancer (including melanoma and non-melanoma). While during the winter months one could make do with sun protection from moisturiser, foundation or any other product (applause for the ones who use sunscreen during winter, good job!), during summer time it’s just not enough.
One of my favourites to use during warm season is Avene Cleanance Sunscreen SPF 30. Starting with the awesome packaging – it has a pump! It delivers perfect amount of the product for your face. Though while I am not a big fan of this bright orange packaging, again – the pump! The product itself is a little runny, but not overly so. It’s waterproof, sweatproof, hypoallergenic and non camedogenic (can confirm – so far no breakouts). This one is designed for acne prone/oily skin (I believe any skin type could wear this). It feels very light on the skin, almost as if you are do not have anything on. It gives a white tint once applied, but that’s only till it sinks into the skin (takes minute or two).
Second one, Clinique Sun Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Face Cream is the one that lives in my beach bag. Meaning it gets out only when I am not wearing make up. Basically because while it is marked as oil free and after initial application feels fine, some time later it starts to feel heavy on the skin. Which is weird since I didn’t notice anyone else complain about it. On the other hand, without make up on top of it, it’s all good. I believe people with a dryer skin should give this a go. It’s not a bad product, just doesn’t really work for my combination/oily skin.
