Review: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Lotion SPF 15 Sunscreen
So I had the chance to try out another sunscreen in the past week! It’s Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Lotion SPF 15 Sunscreen! After having so much success with Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream, I thought I would give the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle sunscreen a try. I was searching for a sunscreen that was a little bit more moisturizing than what I am using. Mineral sunscreens tend to dry out my skin so much! I just wanted a sunscreen that moisturizes and protects my skin. This sunscreen contains chemical filters, such as Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (3.0%), and Oxybenzone (3.0%). I do pretty well with chemical filters. No dryness, itchiness, or any irritation of any kind besides it burning my eyes if it gets in. 😢 Yeah, I know, this sunscreen only contains SPF 15, but hey, let’s try it anyways to see if it works or not. Who knows what may happen! It might even work!
Note: Has anyone noticed that Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 just vanished? It’s not like I’m using it anymore. I still have a couple of tubes of the Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 left, and I’m currently still using Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++, which has a higher SPF and a good PA. It’s just that, it’s been out of stock for a while that’s all. haha! 🤔 Now back to Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Lotion SPF 15 Sunscreen!
About this sunscreen…
It visibly reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 5 weeks! It’s formulated with coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E. It moisturizes the skin for softer, smoother skin while protecting the skin with SPF 15. It’s fragrance-free. Non-comedogenic. Great for sensitive skin!
The ingredients isn’t too bad. It does appear to be moisturizing just by taking a glance at the ingredients. My skin can’t handle skin care products that are super moisturizing. If it does, I was just lucky for it to work (not clog my pores). This sunscreen does contain ingredients I’m wary about, but let’s see what happens! Let’s move on to my experience! This is what happened! 👇🏻
Here’s my experience after using it!
This sunscreen comes in a 4 fl. oz. pump bottle that’s easy to use. I only needed a single pump of product for the whole face. It felt soothing and moisturizing yet lightweight on the skin all at once. The most moisturizing lightweight moisturizer that I have used in a while. It’s even more moisturizing than the Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream. It just feels so soft and smoothing on the skin. It rubs into the skin nicely too. The product doesn’t tug at the skin. It glides across the skin easily with little effort. Once I was done applying the lotion, my skin felt so moisturized and prepped for makeup. It helped tame any flaky skin I had and made my skin look ultra silky and smooth. It was unbelievable. I loved the results I saw using this sunscreen. And I wanted the results to last forever! I was hoping that it worked for me long term at this point. 🙂
The sunscreen stayed on my skin and left my skin feeling moisturized throughout the day. I didn’t have any issues with it. It made my skin appear softer. My pores looked better too. It felt like I applied a makeup primer to my facial skin without the excess silicone feeling that I get from wearing a makeup primer. This product does contain silicone in it, but it doesn’t feel like it. I liked the way it felt on my skin. This product also contains alcohol, but it didn’t dry my skin out in any way. Honestly, I didn’t have a problem with it. The sunscreen worked for me with the alcohol in it. I didn’t have any sort of redness or irritation. Just amazingly moisturized skin that lasted the whole day! Seems to work great if you have sensitive skin. It didn’t burn my eyes either! Awesome!
So am I still using this sunscreen??
Hmmm! The answer is no. I was able to use this sunscreen for less than a week. I started noticing clogged pores mid-week. I noticed hard sebum within my pores and new breakouts in random places. I stopped using the sunscreen because of that. I knew it was the sunscreen that caused the breakouts. It was just too good to be true. The sunscreen also contains Glyceryl Stearte SE, Caprylic-Capric-Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol. I think a combination of these ingredients just made me breakout in acne. I had to give it up (on my face). I may continue to use it on other parts of my body, since I’m madly in love with the texture and consistency of the product. It just feels so moisturizing and healing at the same time while providing SPF 15. Once again, yes, it’s low, but it’s something. Plus I already have a higher SPF for my facial skin. I’m after the moisture! I love it! So overall, for the face, it didn’t work out. For other parts of my skin, yes. And if you don’t have acne-prone skin, it’s a pretty good product. Too bad I’m stuck with blemishes. Well, preventing them anyways. haha. Moving on…

An Update on Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++!
Trying Out Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++ White For The First Time! Here’s My First Impression!
Update on Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++! Which One Is Better? Clear or White??
Update on Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++! Which One Is Better? Clear or White??
It’s time for an update on Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++!! I know, I know, I haven’t used the White version for long, but I think I have a grasp on the effects it has on my skin by now. So, the burning question is, which one is better? The Clear version or the White version?? Hmmmm! Keep reading to find out! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
When I first started using the the White version, I liked it. I thought it worked very similar to the Clear. Go here to read more on my first impression on the White version. I didn’t have any issues with the white cast. That was the only thing I was worried about plus if the sunscreen is going to break me out. Fortunately, it didn’t break me out, but the white cast got really annoying after a while. After using it, I don’t think I can wear this sunscreen on my no makeup days. The white cast looks pretty obvious, lol. At first glance, it looks like it could work out, but it’s just a no for me after a few days of using it, haha. I don’t want to walk around having this white tint on my face. It does make the skin look brighter, but it’s very noticeable. It’s not as subtle as I thought it was. So that’s a negative about this sunscreen and that’s what most people complained about — the obvious white cast it leaves behind! Besides that, there’s a few other things that bothered me about this sunscreen…
So the Clear and the White both are drying, but between the two, the White is a tad more drying on the skin. This sunscreen will attach itself to every single flake on the face (if there’s any). I had to prep my skin before using the White version because my skin looked like a huge mess when I didn’t moisturize my skin enough. I mean, you NEED to moisturize the skin before using the White version. Compared to the Clear, it appears that Titanium Dioxide is higher up on the ingredient list. That’s why the sunscreen gives off a white cast and is more drying. But, at the same time, even if it’s more drying, it really does help control excess sebum on my skin. It leaves a matte finish while the Clear made my face look like silicone and shiny. But I kind of like that dewy, shiny appearance to my skin. It makes my skin look so pretty and nice. I love the matte finish of the White too but the Clear makes my skin look pretty, lol. Also, the White version is more difficult to blend into the skin. The Clear version just smooths over much better and more effortlessly. Both feel drying on my skin at some point during the day (on my skin), but the Clear definitely wins when it comes to adding a little bit of moisture to the skin.
Now back to the obvious white cast! With the white cast, it looks awful when used alone (no makeup days). It made my skin appear dry and ashy. But, it seems to work very nicely when used underneath makeup. My foundation looks brighter and more even due to the the blank, white canvas it gives underneath the foundation. So that’s another thing I do like about the White version (including the matte finish it provides for my oily skin). But I’m having mixed feelings about the White version. I somehow like it, but I don’t. Honestly, I can see why most people like the Clear better. It just works better. It’s easier to apply, no white cast, and makes the skin look beautiful. WELL! It looks like the winner between the two sunscreens is the Clear! Maybe I’ll just use the White when I wear foundation or when my skin is feeling a little bit more oily, especially during the warmer months. Right now, I’m back to using the Clear. And I don’t think I’m going to purchase the White again. Even though it’s less expensive, it makes my daily morning routine much more difficult. I just don’t have the time to blend in sunscreen. It should just easily melt into my skin (like the Clear version).
*sigh* I really wanted the White to work, but it’s too difficult to use for every day. Would I recommend? Well, it could work for you, but the Clear is definitely a lot better between the two. I’m choosing the Clear! 👍🏻
