My Updated Experience with Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50 & How I’m Using Sunscreen
I’ve been using Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50 for 1 week. I didn’t use it every day. I stopped using sunscreen every day. I only use it when my skin is directly exposed to the sun, which is when I’m outdoors. When I’m indoors, I don’t even bother. I’m pretty good at remembering when to wear sunscreen. I don’t need to make it a habit. I’ve been wearing sunscreen for so many years already. I decided to just leave my skin alone and not waste money on excessive use of sunscreen products. Also, I haven’t noticed much difference in my skin when doing this. My skin looks fine without using sunscreen every day when I’m indoors. I have curtains that block out the sun anyway. All I noticed when applying sunscreen every day even when indoors was a decrease in my bank account. That sucked. I’m glad I made this change.
From how things are going using sunscreen like this, my skin looks so much better. I haven’t experienced major breakouts. I was dealing with breakouts from mineral sunscreens and wondered if they caused clogged pores. Now I know that they do. I had to stop using mineral sunscreens until I find one that’s suitable for my skin type. If that ever happens, lol. In the meantime, I guess I’ll use what I have — Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50. I’m thinking about re-adding La Roche Posay SPF 100 back in my routine too since I don’t use SPF every day. I also quit re-applying unless I’m outdoors for long periods of time, which is very few days in a month. Yes, in a single month. Not a week. I’m rarely outdoors that much.
Here are my thoughts on Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50…
As mentioned earlier, I’ve been using Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50 for 1 week. This sunscreen feels just like how I remembered it. It feels like a lightweight lotion when applied to the skin. It absorbs pretty well into the skin. I didn’t have any issues rubbing the product into my skin. I still have to watch the eye area because the sunscreen burns the eyes if it gets in it. It also burns the eyes if it gets near it. So! I used a mineral-based sunscreen for the eye area instead. At least I’m using up my mineral sunscreens!
Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50 feels greasy on the skin with the proper amount of product. I wish that it wasn’t that greasy. It left my skin looking shiny all day. I love the UVA and UVB protection, but it feels heavy on the skin. My hair would stick to my face. Unfortunately, if it’s really hot, humid, my skin starts to over-react to the humidity. On top of that, I do have oily skin, which makes heavy products look extremely shiny on my skin. It’s going to get cooler sooner so that shouldn’t be a problem. Another issue I had with this sunscreen that I haven’t experience in a while is pilling. I was applying the sunscreen this morning (after having no issues), and it rolled off my face! I don’t even use that many products in the morning. Only a salicylic acid toner and benzoyl peroxide for acne. I don’t know what happened. I gave up using it for today and used La Roche-Posay SPF 100 instead. I’ll make an update on La Roche-Posay SPF 100 next time again.
See everyone there! 🙂
