I used to hate sunscreen, the way it smells, the way it feels, everything.
This sunscreen does not smell like your typical sunscreen – it only has the slightest hint, the rest is masked under a lovely fragrance which smells like a powdery floral scent. The scent only lasts for a few minutes and after that it fades away, at least from my experience. Although smell is subjective, I personally enjoy the scent whereas someone who is sensitive to scents may hate this.
In terms of texture, this product has a very watery consistency. The titanium dioxide particles in this product has been finely milled so it absorbs quickly into the skin leaving behind a transparent layer of protection. This product spreads very easily across the face, but please ensure you apply generously to benefit from the full protection.
To date this is one of my favorite sunscreens, it’s lightweight, smells great, and offers a high level of protection (especially in those summer months). I would definitely repurchase this product. If you’re in the market for a new sunscreen and you’re ready to splurge, I highly recommend this product – this is something that was recommended from my mother, and I ended up recommending this product to my younger sister and a few of my lady cousins.
