Some of my friend’s excuse(s) for not using sunscreen……..it’s sticky, it leaves my face oily, it breaks me out, it makes me look chalky, it smells bad. Those are some of the reasons I hear from other people as to why they do not regularly use sunscreen.
Now, I have had my fair share of issues with sunscreen as well, but that hasn’t deterred me from using it. After all, I would rather get the occasional break out or have to invest in a ton of blotting papers than have wrinkles and age spots. I have just been content with the fact that sun protection products for the face can’t always be perfect……….or can they?
Yes they can be perfect and more! I have found the Holy Grail of sunscreens! This newest formula from Cover FX IS perfect. It is not sticky, greasy, and doesn’t leave a white cast. It has a very slight sunscreen smell, but that dissipates very quickly.
It goes on completely clear, and the best part…it acts as a face primer! It goes on smooth and absorbs within seconds. The real test obviously is how effective it is at protecting your face. Well, I went to a theme park weeks ago, I was there all day, the sun was shining, and no sunburn. SPF 30 is pretty decent for everyday. This sunscreen one ups all the others even more with its antioxidant packed formula, along with brightening and moisturizing properties. It isn’t overly moisturizing, so those of you who have the oiliest skin in the Summer but still want a little something for dry patches; this may be all you need.
The bottle is a pump, so you will not lose effectiveness from the product being exposed to oxygen.
I cannot find the words to say how much I love this stuff. It is absolutely for everyone. Even the sunscreen itself is a gentle formulation, so you will be hard pressed to find someone who will have a bad reaction to this. I even put my tried and true Perricone MD Photoplasma on the back burner!
Clear Cover wins my vote for product innovation of the year!
