“Sun Protection doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive – it needs to be consistent. Keep it simple, but do it forever.” – Hillary Fogelson
I think above everything else in your daily routine, sun protection should be your number one priority. Many people seems to understand the danger of sun rays, but many choose to ignore it and half-heartedly use sun protection. Before I knew anything about skincare, I am one of these people…
I hate the scent, texture and everything you can think of when it comes to sunscreen. They are always sticky, and smells funny. But like technology, innovations have occurred within the beauty industry. As an example, in Japanese and Korean beauty industry, sunscreen products are light textured, non-greasy and nicely scented (or sometimes non-scented). Since then, many western beauty companies have followed suit, in creating sun protection products that are enjoyable to use and customers actually want to use it daily, plus topping up every 4 hours.
I am excited to share with you plenty of sun protection products, but today I want to specifically talk about the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF40 PA+++, wowza mouthful! It is a light gel-like textured sunscreen, with barely any scent, which for some with a more sensitive skin might prefer. Without looking at the ingredients list, I can definitely feel the slight slip that you can get from products containing silicon. However, for an oil skinned person, I do think this texture help when I put makeup on top of the sunscreen.
Overtime, the smooth gel texture do developed tiny grain texture, which I do not find pleasant at all on the skin. I have a sneaky suspicion that there could possibly be unpredictable changes in temperature in my room, which could cause some ingredients within the sunscreen to froze/curdled. I do think this makes a good sunscreen especially for those of you who happens to live in the warmer climate, I feel that the cooler temperature slightly altered the texture of the gel.
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen has been a go-to sunscreen for a while, specially during summer month when I get a chance to jump to the water. In my personal opinion, the texture made it more water-resistant in comparison to a cream textured sunscreen.
