This sunscreen is nothing like Western sunscreens I have used before. It doesn’t leave a white cast on my face and does not clog pores. On the contrary, it is like applying a gel moisturizer, it is absorbed easily with no oiliness! I have a few aging spots on my face and this sunscreen with SPF50 prevents future ones from forming so I am very happy.

I have literally tried a lot of sunscreens but it was so difficult to find one that doesn’t feel greasy or oily on my face! Well, this one is goals!! It’s like my second moisturizer! More like a gel that lefts the skin soft and with a healthy shine. I feel soooo excited that i managed to find a sunscreen with a texture like this. !
Gorgeous sunscreen and dies what it promises. Very happy I discovered this and this shop as it is very hard to find this product in Europe
