4 Sunscreens To Add To Your Daily Routine - Aylna Neo

4 Sunscreens To Add To Your Daily Routine - Aylna Neo
Friday, July 20, 2018

This month I’ve tried four different sunscreens and I must say, I’m surprised that there are so many different sunscreens available in the market! This is the first time trying the following four products and I can’t really conclude which one I love most! All of them are fast absorbing and lasted long too! So I will be reviewing based on what works best for my skin type which is oily and sensitive, since not every sunscreens work for my easily congested face. So let’s find out the best sunscreen for oily and sensitive skin together!

Shiseido Perfect UV Protector S

First impression of this product is that it is so watery when poured out of the bottle. And my initial thought was, “This is it! I’m going to so love this product!” I hate sunscreens that are too heavy, I prefer sunscreens with lightweight texture that allow my skin to breathe. However, after application and blending the Shiseido Perfect UV Protector S on my skin, it was not as lightweight as I thought it would be. It left a tinge of white cast after blending but it’s not very obvious. If you’re someone who is looking to brighten your skin, then yes, this product will be suitable for you.

In addition, I did a test to the sunscreen since it is formulated with WetForce Technology which reacts positively to sweat and water on contact and also, it claimed to be water/perspiration resistant. Indeed, the sunscreen is waterproof! Staying outdoors for the entire day, the sunscreen did stay on my skin. However if you are a someone who puts on makeup daily, like me, you have to layer it with setting powder to make your skin appear less oily.

And from what I’ve read about this product, this sunscreen is suitable for sensitive skin, and contains no paraben, ethanol-free and fragrance-free!

SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40

I love this product so much! I’m not even kidding! The SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 doesn’t feel like sunscreen at all! It left a velvety soft and leaves a matte finish on the skin after application as it is a gel-based sunscreen which feels exactly like a primer. How brilliant!

Because it acted so much like a primer it felt as though as if I’m not well-protected from the UVA/UVB rays. However, their formulation indicates there are properties that help to block the harsh UV rays. So girls, WE ARE SAFE! I concluded that this product is definitely suitable for oily skin given that it is so lightweight and gel-type formula leaves a soft velvet matte finish.

Dr. Jart+ UV Every Sun Day

I have been using Dr. Jart+ products for years and I swear by my name that their products are very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. When I got the chance to try out their sunscreen, I was so delighted because I have very high expectations for the sunscreen.

This sunscreen is fast -absorbing, it is non-tacky, smooth and felt like I never apply anything at all. Moreover this product is dermatologist tested, it is free of skin-clogging mineral for a clear and fresh glow. It also contains a tinge of light pink beige colour which helps in skin tone correcting to make my skin appear healthy.

Lancôme UV Expert Youth-Shield
Aqua Gel SPF50 PA++++

My skin is well-protected with this sunscreen. I love how fast absorbing the sunscreen is. It left my skin feeling soft and moisturised, with zero-shine. With Lancôme UV Expert Youth-Shield™ Aqua Gel SPF50 PA++++, my skin is protected from spots and darkening, it feels like a combination of sunscreen and skincare product.

Gathering 100 percent approval by women for it’s anti-ageing properties and benefits for a beautiful skin, Lancôme UV Expert Youth-Shield™ Aqua Gel SPF50 PA++++ is proven to make wrinkles and fine lines seem less visible and blemishes seem softened.
