Review: Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion (Fair-Light)

Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion Light to Fair

I picked up Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion in Fair-Light. I’ve been hearing about this sunscreen for so many years. I thought, maybe I should just try it out. What put me off from trying this sunscreen out in the first place is that it contains red algae (Porphyra Umbilicalis Extract). And my experience with algae in general in skin care products have not been good. It clogs my pores. But, anything can clog anyone’s pores. It really depends on how the person’s skin reacts to the ingredients/overall formulation of the product. So, I’ve read so many reviews raving about this product! Am I missing out on something?? Hmmm! Now, here I am, with a tube of this stuff. Here are my thoughts on it!

My Experience with Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Sunscreen Lotion!

Texture & Application

The texture of this sunscreen is a mousse-cream. It’s a very different type of texture and consistency that I didn’t expect from a bb cream/tinted lotion. It’s soft, lightweight, and souffle-like. It glides over the skin very easily and smoothly. It was very easy to use this product. Very easy to blend into the skin without tugging at the skin. I didn’t have any problems with application. It was a simple process that didn’t take a lot of time. I loved using it around my eyes. It didn’t burn my eyes. But, the sunscreen looks a little greasy and shiny upon application at first. I used the required amount for sunscreen too, which is a lot of product. After about 30 minutes, the product looked matte on the skin. The next 15 more minutes, my skin looked even more matte. It is truly a matte sunscreen as it states on the bottle (matte finish).


The product is fragrance-free, but it does have smell to it. When I first opened it and sniffed it, I thought it smelled like tanning lotion. After smelling it again just now, it smells like plant extracts. Maybe a combo of both? I’m not too fond of the scent, but it didn’t bother me too much.

Shade (Fair-Light Skin Tones)

I wasn’t impressed with the shade of this product. It says it’s for fair to light skin tones. The color of this product is literally orange when dispensed from the tube. On my skin, it was orange if I used too much. πŸŠπŸ˜‚ I didn’t like that at all. πŸ‘ŽπŸ» If I use it as a makeup product rather than my main sunscreen, it works out pretty well. It doesn’t turn my skin extremely orange, but there is an orange tint to the skin. That tint eventually fades away a little bit, so it wasn’t too bad. There is no coverage. It seems to work very well as a makeup primer. It seems to coat my eyelashes too. Eyelash primer as well? lol. So this product works out if you’re searching for a mineral sunscreen that is tinted (no white cast). I actually used it on top of my mineral sunscreen (that gives a white cast) to eliminate the white cast. Worked very well. Cast begone! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Great for oily skin!

Since the sunscreen is matte, it works amazingly on oily skin. I have very oily skin, and this sunscreen was perfect on my skin when it comes to taming excess oil. It makes my face appear very clean compared to the dewy, oily look, haha. If you have dry skin, you might want to apply a good moisturizer underneath. This sunscreen is definitely aimed towards people with oily skin. I’m not saying it won’t work for dry skin. It’s truly a matte lotion sunscreen. I didn’t think it was drying at all on my skin.

It stays in place.

Most sunscreens swish around my face when I reapply. That might be the reason why I was developing more freckles! When I went in for a reapplication, I can feel that this sunscreen did not shift at all on my face. It stayed in place. Reapplying was not a pleasant experience since it felt like I was applying on top of more product. The sunscreen feels lightweight when applying, but it leaves a layer, film of product on the skin. I can feel that there’s product sitting on my skin. It’s quite annoying.

Breakouts? Clogged pores?

I was dreading using this sunscreen on my face because of the red algae. The other ingredient, shea butter, is a hit or miss on my skin. I thought this sunscreen was a tad too rich on my skin, which is odd because I thought it would be drying (from the reviews I’ve read). It leaves a sticky residue on my skin and just feels too moisturizing. I noticed closed comedones, some blackheads, and milia in my breakout-prone areas. That’s when I stopped using it. Could it be the red algae? Shea butter? Who knows. My skin didn’t like it. It feels very occlusive on the skin, especially when reapplied. By the way, I started noticing breakouts by day 2, but I didn’t stop by day 3. By day 3, it became more obvious that my pores were getting clogged.

How to remove.

This is one of the most difficult sunscreen products to remove from the skin. It does not come off by simply cleansing with a face wash. To remove this product, oil cleanse (leave on for a few minutes) and wash with a facial cleanser. I do have a facial brush too to help remove the sunscreen off of the skin. If the product does not budge, oil cleanse, oil cleanse, oil cleanse some more. Just make sure the sunscreen is all off. If you do not remove the sunscreen off properly, you’ll in up with residue on your face, which can lead to clogged pores. I removed the sunscreen off properly and made sure my skin was squeaky clean, so my breakouts were from the ingredients in the product. It’s not compatible with my skin type.

Final Thoughts

I was so excited to try this sunscreen out. It’s affordable, comes in a 3 fl. oz. tube, has SPF 50, and it’s a mineral sunscreen (4% Zinc Oxide, 4% Titanium Dioxide). The smell of the product isn’t too bad. I got used to it after a few uses. The shade of the product could be better. I wish it wasn’t orange. πŸ˜‚ Fair to light isn’t fair to light. I could see the drastic difference in my skin color when using this sunscreen. Too bad that it clogged my pores too. I wished my skin didn’t react the way it did, but it did. *sigh* I wanted it to work. It would’ve work well for outdoor workouts, hikes, pool days, and going to the beach. It sticks to the skin like crazy. If you want a sunscreen that stays on your skin, this will do it. For everyday use? It’s not for my skin type. Like I said before, it feels too heavy, sticky on the skin. It’s weird because the sunscreen feels lightweight when applied to the skin. After a few hours, it takes on this sticky texture, film that I dislike. I don’t like it and my skin doesn’t like it. It gets in my hair. It’s difficult to remove. The breakouts killed it for me. All in all, I won’t repurchase. This sunscreen has been hyped up so much that I thought it would be amazing. It’s a nope for me.

Review: Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants

Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50

I have a new sunscreen to review. πŸ™‚ I have the Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants. I’ve been eyeing this sunscreen for a while. I finally picked up a bottle to try it out. I’ve been trying to find a new sunscreen for the face. A sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white cast behind and doesn’t dry out the skin. This seemed like a good pick. This sunscreen is supposed to be lightweight and non-greasy with a dry touch finish that leaves no visible residue. It’s formulated with 5 antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and humectants for an immediate and long lasting hydrating effect. Developed with dermatologists. It’s non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and hypoallergenic. Suitable for sensitive skin and for daily use. Formulated for all skin tones. Free of fragrance, dyes, parabens, PABA, phthalates, oxybenzone, and octinoxate. It’s water-resistant (up to 80 minutes) and sweat-resistant. It also comes in a bigger bottle (5 fl. oz.). I honestly can’t stand sunscreens that come in tiny little bottles. I use a ton of sunscreen per day, and it gets so expensive. Here are my thoughts on Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50! Did it work out? Read on to find out!

My Experience with Eucerin Advanced Hydration SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid + Humectants:

Texture & Application

This sunscreen is a lotion. The texture of the sunscreen is soft and smooth. I tried the sunscreen on the face and body. On the face, it felt very moisturizing, but it was very difficult to apply. The sunscreen doesn’t glide across the facial skin well. It takes a while to blend the sunscreen into the skin. After blending, it leaves a little bit of white residue behind. This was weird because it’s a chemical sunscreen. I’ve never experienced this with a chemical sunscreen before. They usually just absorb into the skin nicely without leaving any white residue or a cast behind. The product felt extremely sticky on my face. It didn’t really set on the skin. I waited for about 30 minutes, and my skin still felt sticky. I didn’t like the way the sunscreen sat on my skin. It claims to be non-greasy, but it feels very oily and greasy. Very, very oily. It was not a good experience using the product. I could see some of the hairs on the side of my face sticking up as well. The sunscreen also leaked into my hairline and made my hair feel sticky, greasy, and super shiny. As a face sunscreen, it didn’t work for me. On the body, that’s a different story. It worked. The product is moisturizing and blends into the skin well. I didn’t have any issues applying the sunscreen lotion on my body.

It’s a moisturizing sunscreen! πŸ’¦

One of the reasons why I purchased this sunscreen is because it’s a hydrating and moisturizing sunscreen. And it is! But, it didn’t work on my face. It felt too oily, greasy, and heavy on my facial skin. I didn’t like using it as a face sunscreen. As a body sunscreen, it’s nice. I’ve been using it on my hands, and it works for that purpose. Just not my face.

Burning eyes, smells like crap.

This product claims to be fragrance-free. In fact, it does have a smell to it. It has a chemical smell that bothered me. I honestly didn’t like it. Even though I’m not using the sunscreen on my face (anymore), I still can’t stand the smell of it using it on my body. It’s so strong that it burns my eyes and makes my eyes watery. It’s a bit too much for me. It’s a sunscreen that actually smells like a sunscreen. It would be nice if the product didn’t have a strong chemical smell to it. I’m not too fond of smells, I guess, lol.

Breakouts? Clogged pores??

Even though I loved how moisturizing this sunscreen is, I noticed clogged pores using it on my face after 2 days. The sunscreen is just too oily and greasy on my face. It makes my skin appear more shiny and oily too. That’s just not good for my skin type. I noticed whiteheads along my mouth area and jawline. Ugh! I was sooo mad when I saw the breakouts. The sad thing is, I didn’t expect this sunscreen to break me out just by looking at the ingredients list. But, it did, it broke me out.

Final Thoughts

Another sunscreen that I really wanted to work, lol. I feel like I’m just going through sunscreens, and it’s freaking annoying. I was searching for a chemical sunscreen since they tend to be more moisturizing and don’t leave a white cast behind. Well, this one left a little bit of white residue behind for some odd reason. My experience with it was just overall bad. It’s nice that it’s moisturizing, but does it really matter if it doesn’t work on my skin? It irritated my eyes, left my skin feeling and looking greasy, was difficult to apply, felt heavy on the skin, and reapplying was a pain. I won’t purchase it again. I can’t recommend it either unless it’s used as a body sunscreen. It just didn’t work for me as a facial sunscreen. What a disappointment. I can’t wait to finish the rest of the bottle and toss it out.

Update on La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100

La Roche Posay Anthelios Melt-In-Milk Sunscreen SPF 100

I tried La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 again. I stopped using my moisturizer (Vanicream Daily Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin), and my skin became so dry and flaky. I needed a product that would moisturize my skin. The only product that came to mind was La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100 (that I have). My experience using it last time was very bad. You can read more about it right here. I’m still using a mineral sunscreen, and it’s been an unpleasant experience. It’s not the worst mineral sunscreen I’ve used, but it still leaves a white cast and dries my skin out like crazy (even though it’s a tad moisturizing, just not enough). With La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100, at least it’s moisturizing and has a SPF of 100. Here’s my experience with La Roche-Posay SPF 100 sunscreen again this time around!

My experience…

I was very hesitant about trying this sunscreen again. I could just go out and purchase a new sunscreen, but I wanted to see if this sunscreen would work first without using a moisturizer underneath. From what I remember, it’s moisturizing enough by itself. Also, I loved the way it felt on my skin. It’s so moisturizing with a high SPF of 100. So my last experience with this sunscreen was not good. I experienced burning eyes, a non-stop migraine, and clogged pores by the second day. It was one of those experiences where I thought I would never touch this sunscreen ever again. But, here I am, trying it out again just because I have it and don’t want to buy another sunscreen at the moment. Also, my skin is feeling extremely dry. I thought the sunscreen would help with the dryness in the meantime.

The first day of using this sunscreen went well, but I didn’t use it from morning to night. I only used it once in the evening. It was my last SPF application of the day. I didn’t experience any redness, itchiness, or any other skin irritations. My eyes burned a little bit but not by much. The burning sensation disappeared after a few minutes. I was able to wear the sunscreen.

The sunscreen felt soft in texture and smoothed over my facial skin easily. It feels very nice on the skin. Possibly one of the most softest and soothing sunscreens I’ve used so far. I really liked the texture and consistency of this sunscreen. It was perfect for me. Even though it’s super moisturizing on the skin, it does lean towards the greasy side, but I could deal with it because the sunscreen didn’t stick to my hairline or leak into my eyes. It melted into my skin when applied and stayed in place. The lotion isn’t messy to use. It feels like a quality sunscreen. I didn’t breakout the first time I used it either. It simply just left my skin feeling moisturized when applied and after rinsing it off. I was happy with the results.

I tried using the sunscreen again the next day. This time I was able to use it from morning until night. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. I started to have issues. My eyes started to burn. They became red and watery. I couldn’t open them. I tried applying the sunscreen just on my face (avoiding the eye area), my eyes still burned. The smell of the sunscreen started to get to me. I also noticed my face warming up when using this sunscreen. Is this normal? Probably not. Seems like it’s not compatible with my skin. I stopped using it when I realized this sunscreen was giving me issues. That’s too bad. It works very well on my body but not my face. I tried it the second time, and it failed on my again. I can’t recommend this product as a face sunscreen. It may work for someone else, but it didn’t for me.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100

My Thoughts on La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100!

La Roche Posay Anthelios Melt-In-Milk Sunscreen SPF 100

I have a new sunscreen! 😎 I picked up another La Roche-Posay sunscreen. It’s the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100. I decided to go for SPF 100 instead of 50. Also, I decided to try a chemical sunscreen instead. I’m getting tired of the dryness and white cast from mineral sunscreens (in general). I love my zinc sunscreens, but the white cast is getting annoying for daily use, especially when my skin is dry and peeling. Everything gets magnified 10x more with mineral sunscreens. I can’t use a sunscreen that gives off a white cast when I’m in a professional setting. It just looks awful and embarrassing. But it’s a good choice if I’m at home lounging or going on hikes with friends. I don’t care if I have a white cast at that point. haha.

So this sunscreen is a broad spectrum sunscreen for the face and body. It helps to protect skin that burns easily and is oxybenzone-free. It contains Cell-Ox Shield with UVA/UVB protection and antioxidants. Fragrance-free. Water-resistant (80 minutes). The filters in this sunscreen are Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 15%, Octisalate 5%, and Octocrylene 10%.

I haven’t used a 100% chemical sunscreen on my face for a while. I’ve been using a hybrid sunscreen and mineral sunscreen this whole year (so far). I had good results with La Roche-Posay Anthelios Body & Face Mineral Sunscreen Gentle Lotion. My skin didn’t burn at all. It’s the first time that I noticed that my freckles are fading and my skin just looks super amazing. Way better when I was using Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++ by itself. But then, I’ve been reapplying sunscreen diligently and religiously. The fact that Canmake is not sweat or water-resistant may play a part too. I still like Canmake. It leaves my skin feeling silky, and I’m still using it because I can’t seem to let it go! lol. The texture of the sunscreen is like no other! It’ll work for winters but not for summers. It just doesn’t hold up in hot, humid, sweaty weather. It just doesn’t stick to the skin. So I hope to get good results with La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100! Hopefully no breakouts like the La Roche-Posay mineral sunscreen. Now on to my experience with La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100!

My Experience with La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Milk Face & Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 100:

Texture & Application

This is a lotion (as it states on the bottle). The sunscreen feels thick when dispensed from the bottle. When applied to the facial skin, it feels soft and blends into the skin very easily. It just melts into the skin. They’re not lying when they called this sunscreen ‘melt-in milk’. It really does melt into the skin. The texture and consistency of the sunscreen makes it very easy to smooth the product across the facial skin. No tugging or pulling at the skin involved. Just smooth it over and blend it into the skin. I thought it was very easy to use. Even though the application is simple, the sunscreen doesn’t seem to absorb into the skin quickly. It didn’t on my skin, lol. It felt like some of the sunscreen absorbed and the rest just sat on top of my skin. Since this is a chemical sunscreen, there isn’t a white cast, obviously. That’s not something to worry about when it comes to chemical sunscreens. It wasn’t streaky either. As I said earlier, it just melts into the skin when applied.

Moisturizing & Alcohol-Free

It’s a moisturizing sunscreen. I was in awe how much it moisturized my skin, but my skin felt a little dry to begin with. It helped with dry patches and dry skin in general. Even though it felt moisturizing, I thought this sunscreen felt greasy on the skin. It’s moisturizing, but it made my skin look more shiny, greasy, and oily. Keep in mind that I do have oily skin (can get dry sometimes), but my skin is naturally oily. I think this sunscreen would work much better for someone with naturally dry skin or normal skin.

I was looking through La Roche-Posay sunscreens and most of them had alcohol in them. This one in particular is alcohol-free. I prefer sunscreens that don’t contain drying alcohols. My skin gets itchy, red, and super dry when I use skin care products that contain drying alcohols. Alcohol in skin care tends to accentuate every line on my face too. That’s why I don’t use skin care products with alcohol. I’m glad this one doesn’t have it. The other sunscreen that use from La Roche-Posay doesn’t have it either (La Roche-Posay Anthelios Body & Face Mineral Sunscreen Gentle Lotion).

Breakouts? Other issues?

I didn’t notice any breakouts the first day, but I noticed breakouts on the second day. I developed one cyst, clogged pores, and a few more bumps. I didn’t doubt the breakouts. Once I saw the acne, I rinsed the sunscreen off ASAP. I think this sunscreen is way too heavy and greasy for my skin type, which is oily and acne-prone. It just sits on top of my skin and suffocates it. 😭 I also noticed that this chemical sunscreen felt warmer on my skin compared to what I usually use (mineral sunscreen). It’s just an observation. I could feel my face warming up after application. Maybe I’m not used to chemical sunscreens yet. I’ve been off of them for a while now (or my skin can’t handle them, who knows). With this sunscreen, there were some other issues besides acne I should touch up on like my eyes burning and headaches. This sunscreen burned my eyes. I could barely keep my eyes open. I tried avoiding the eye area when applying and my eyes were still watery. It must be the fumes from this sunscreen. It just seeps into the eyes. I also noticed headaches. I started developing a migraine out of nowhere. I didn’t link it to the sunscreen until I stopped using it. That’s when my eyes stopped becoming watery and headaches disappeared. Seems like I just can’t use this sunscreen on my face. I have no issues using it from the neck down or even on my ears. Just not my face.

Final Thoughts

I really liked the idea of this sunscreen. The texture of the product is soft and smooth. It’s has a very nice consistency that just blends into the skin with little effort. It moisturized my skin and didn’t accentuate dry skin or acne. SPF 100 is nice to have. But it’s unfortunate that it caused acne, burning eyes, and headaches. The days using this sunscreen was pure torture. I couldn’t take it anymore. It’s just so irritating. I went back to my hybrid and mineral sunscreens. All of these issues just went away once I returned to my usual sunscreens. I really wished this one worked out for me, but it is what it is. I’m not going to keep using a product that irritates my eyes, skin, and gives me migraines. I’ll be on the search for another chemical sunscreen that’s more suitable for me. For now, I’ll stick to what works (minerals).

Review: Coppertone Defend & Care Clear Zinc 50

Coppertone Defend Care Clear Zinc 50

At the beginning of this summer, I picked up Coppertone Defend & Care Clear Zinc 50 for my body. I was searching for a physical sunscreen for my body, but this was close enough, lol. It’s not a completely physical sunscreen but mixed. It has a combination of physical and chemical filters (Octinoxate 7.5%, Octisalate 4.5%, Zinc Oxide 9.7%). Good enough, I guess. haha. My body isn’t too picky like my face. So the product is called Clear Zinc. I’m assuming the sunscreen should go on clear and not leave a white cast behind. We’ll see about that! It’s water resistant (80 minutes). It doesn’t contain any dyes, PABA, and Oxybenzone. It looks like a basic sunscreen that can be used on beach days. It comes in a 6 fl. oz. bottle. If this was used on the face, I would consider this a good amount of product. On the body, not so much. I’ve seen larger bottles of sunscreen for the body. But let’s try it out! Here’s my experience with Coppertone Defend & Care Clear Zinc 50! β˜€

This sunscreen goes all the way back to the beginning of this summer. I’ve had it for a while now. Here are my thoughts on it. The product is a gel-cream. It looks like a cream but feels like a gel. It’s gloopy when dispensed from the bottle. I started using this sunscreen on my body first. It feels like a typical sunscreen lotion when applied to the skin. Nothing really stands out about it. I did noticed that the sunscreen tends to leave a slight white cast on my skin. From my experience with this sunscreen, I don’t think it would work on skin that’s tan or darker. I didn’t like it myself even though I’m not tan. I prefer sunscreens that blend into my natural skin tone. With the white cast, it tends to settle into fine lines and creases. Also, it transfers white stains onto clothes, other fabrics, and surfaces as well. This sunscreen isn’t moisturizing, so if you have dry skin, it’ll accentuate the dryness even more. I think it’s just the zinc doing that, lol. The reason why I tend to shy away from mineral-based sunscreens most of the time. They are, in general, drying on the skin. This sunscreen also has a plastic smell to it. It smells like a bunch of chemicals. I didn’t like it. Well, let’s see how it goes for my face. I decided to try it out anyways. It might work better. I can only hope! Read on…

I wasn’t too impressed with the sunscreen on my body, but I decided to try it on my face, since it contained SPF 50. I wanted a higher SPF at that time. I gave it a go regardless of my experience with the sunscreen on my body. haha. Applying the sunscreen to my facial skin was more challenging. The sunscreen is best applied in droplets. When too much is applied to the skin at once, it gets really messy and doesn’t absorb into the skin properly. My face ends up being white due to the white cast it leaves behind. On the face, the product moves around a lot. It’s streaky. It’s hard to tell if I’m applying an even application. Reapplication is just terrible too. The product would just build up and leave a horrible white cast behind on the skin every time I reapply the sunscreen. It looked like I was wearing a mask. It also accentuated dry patches on my skin. The product would settle in places, such as my eyebrows. It turned them white! It eventually dried out my skin so bad in the end making fine lines and wrinkles look more prominent. Also, the smell of the product gave me headaches. I can’t imagine having this product on my face daily. It smells so awful. The strong fumes irritated my eyes. They became so teary and red. And yes, this sunscreen broke me out. I developed closed comedones. It was pretty scary. Another product that sits on top of my skin and clogs my pores. There’s just too many of them!

After this experience, it looks like this sunscreen is better off used as a body sunscreen. But I really wanted it to work on my face! It’s SPF 50 with zinc and comes in a 6 fl. oz. bottle. It would’ve been awesome if it did! But, nope, it didn’t work. Now let’s look at the ingredient list real quick! Just at a glance, it contains beeswax. My skin hates that stuff, but I had to try it out anyways. Next time, I won’t. It’s an ingredient that I am going to stay away from. Well! The rest of the sunscreen goes on my body. Never on my face ever again!

This is what Coppertone Defend & Care Zinc 50 looks like! Just your typical beach sunscreen.

Coppertone Defend Care Clear Zinc 50

βœ… Pros

❌ Cons

Another big bottle of sunscreen that didn’t work on my face, but my body does ok with it. It irritated my facial skin terribly. It dried out my skin, left a white cast behind (looked like I was wearing a mask!!), burned my eyes, and made fine lines and wrinkles more prominent. Also, I developed closed comedones while using this product. Yuck! It’s a decent sunscreen for the body. Just not for the face. But it’s not for me. I didn’t like it at all. The smell of this product is such a huge turn off. I can’t put up with it. It gave me bad headaches. And I read so many good reviews on it. All lies! I won’t purchase again. Moving on and on to the next best thing!
