Most Helpful Customer Reviews
So it is winter but it still got up to 90+ degrees this weekend on my camping trip. This stuff is amazing. It's a gel-like cream that goes on SO easily and absorbs quickly. It also has decent moisturizing properties which is a plus. I applied generous amounts every morning to face and body and reapplied every 3-4 hours on my arms and legs (there was a lot of shrubbery to trek through and boulders to climb. I was concerned some of the sunscreen may have wiped off). Was out in the sun with very little shade for two days from sunrise to sunset. No sunburns in sight and I don't think I'm even any more tan than I was when I started the trip. Up until now, I've been a hardcore mineral sunscreen girl just because I like that zinc oxide is effective on blocking wavelengths in the UVA spectrum but I HATED the application and texture of mineral sunscreens and never trusted it not to be immediately wiped off or sweated off. This will now be my go-to sunscreen for being in the sun for extended...
This is a basic sunscreen, most japanese sunscreen is in this form, thin and liquidy, with a yellowish/greenish tint, have no scent, easy to spread, I only use this while I'm indoor or are not exposed to heavy sunlight or engaging in sport, because this is not waterproof so if you sweat a lot you have to reapply. This does contain hyaluronic acid as the moisturizing ingredients, but doesn't contain any antioxidant. The way to use this is I do one pump and pat onto my facial skin and neck, and do another pump and cover both of my forearm and back of hand. This is weightless, after drying you won't feel a thing on your skin. The bottle came with a plastic cap so after using you can put the cap back on to prevent accidental spilling/personal hygiene or carry with you in your bag. Overall a great buy, will last quite a while even with daily use.
I use this sunscreen on my arms and on my neck everyday since I wear tank tops / sleeveless almost year round so my arms are usually quite darker than my face. This is a super lightweight, refreshing gel that sinks in instantly and leaves no trace of chemical odor, white cast, tackiness or other unpleasant side effects of most body sunscreens. This is everything that I wanted the Lubriderm lotion to be. I will continue to buy this until I can find a bigger bottle :) I use a stronger sunscreen on my face. But I love having an alternative for my body that I don't mind putting on every morning. This product is quite refreshing, actually. (A nice change from traditional occlusive, suffocating sunscreens) If you hate the look and feel of sunscreen, if you live in a hot and humid climate and have to wear sunscreen daily, this product is for you.
