This product is for those who are sensitive to chemical sunscreens and do not like the zinc oxide layer that physical sunscreens leave on the skin. This is a super moisturizing sunscreen for extremely dry skin. This sunscreen can feel a bit heavy. It does not get absorbed quickly or sinks in completely, even on my normal-dry skin and leaves a dewy finish. But that issue is easy to deal with by setting it with powder on top, every time after using. It leaves a white cast initially which goes away if you blend this well. But it won’t work in flash photography.
This adds a lot of moisture to the skin along with sun protection without making the face sweaty and greasy. It goes great under your makeup as it gets absorbed easily like a gel. It stays for really long as it is completely waterproof and sweat-proof. If you apply this once, you won’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
The emulsion spreads on to skin very easily. After proper blending, it sinks into the skin completely, without leaving any whitish or ashy cast on the face. It is not a mattifying product but neither it is oily nor greasy. The product gives an almost dewy finish, but will not clog pores or cause breakouts. It is free of harmful chemicals and is absolutely photo-stable.
8. MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Protection Visage SPF 50:
This is a primer with SPF 50 which makes it a two-in-one product for your gala day-events! This is absolutely non-greasy and gets absorbed completely without leaving any residue. It also hydrates the face, so you can skip your moisturizer. It allows the makeup to stay matte for really long.
This non-oily cream gets absorbed easily and keeps the face matte for long. SPF 50 works great in harsh sunlight. You can also opt for the SPF 30 product from the same range if you want a little less protection (who would do that by the way?). It leaves no white cast and does not alter either. It is absolutely sweat-proof and waterproof!
