Trying Out Sunscreens Again! 😎

Comment
Summer Sunscreens 2021

I have a bunch of sunscreens that I wanted to try again. Most of them broke me out in the past, but ya know, let’s give them a go! Let’s start off with the first one I tried! πŸ™‚

Neutrogena Sport Face Oil-Free Lotion Sunscreen SPF 70+:

I wanted to try Neutrogena Sport Face Oil-Free Lotion Sunscreen SPF 70+ once again. It has a high SPF (70+), broad spectrum, water resistant (80 minutes), and is very affordable, especially for daily wear. The sunscreen feels a little thick. At the same time, it absorbs and blends into the skin well. It doesn’t leave any white cast behind. This sunscreen is a chemical sunscreen. After a few days of using this sunscreen on my face, I had to stop using it. It didn’t break me out in that short period of time, but it gave me bad headaches. This sunscreen smells like a bunch of chemicals. Kind of like plastic too. I couldn’t tolerate the sunscreen any longer. I stopped using it on my face.

Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30:

This sunscreen was once my HG sunscreen. I haven’t been using it much once I switched to another sunscreen (Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++). I still have a tube or two left. It’s more moisturizing than what I’m using now, but I’m really liking the higher SPF much more. Also, Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 tends to ball up too sometimes. I do miss the brightening effect it had on my freckled skin. It didn’t help fade my freckles but made my overall skin look brighter. Maybe I’ll just use the rest as a moisturizer in the morning. I’m not too big on sunscreens that are SPF 30 since I’ve found other sunscreens that work on my skin that contains a higher SPF.

Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Stick Sensitive SPF 50+:

I tried using this sunscreen stick on my face. It contains shea butter, coconut oil, candelilla wax, sunflower oil, sunflower seed wax, and other oils and waxes. It’s thick and greasy. It felt very moisturizing on the skin. A little difficult to blend into the skin. Once the product melted, it gets much easier but not by much. I love that it contains 20% Zinc Oxide and doesn’t irritate my eyes, skin, lip, and face. It smells like coconut. Mmmmmmm! But since it’s a mineral sunscreen, it accentuated dry skin all over my face and made them look more apparent. This sunscreen made my overall skin texture look softer and smoother though! It’s just that, I can’t deal with a product that makes my dry skin more obvious. Also, it made my face whiter too. I really wanted this sunscreen to work, but the application was too difficult and the results were poor visually on the skin. I guess I can use this sunscreen stick on other parts of my body.

Kose Suncut UV Perfect Essence Super Waterproof SPF 50+ PA++++:

I really liked the texture of this sunscreen. It’s lightweight, gel-like, smoothing, and glides on the skin oh-so-nicely. It feels cooling on the skin too. Also, it’s SPF 50+ PA++++!! That’s pretty awesome! Unfortunately, this sunscreen contains alcohol (possibly the cooling effect it has on the skin), and it also broke me out. I used the rest of the sunscreen on my body with great results! It’s non-sticky and non-greasy too. It’ll be amazing if this sunscreen worked on my facial skin. Too bad it doesn’t! I most likely won’t purchase again due to it being high priced and comes in a small tube. I have plenty of other options for a body sunscreen that doesn’t cost that much!

Review: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Lotion SPF 15 Sunscreen

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! πŸ€” 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! πŸ‘‡πŸ»

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. πŸ™‚

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…
