Reckless sun exposure during my younger years is one of my deepest regrets now that I’m in my late 20s. I knew about the dangers of sun exposure long ago but I just never cared. I thought my skin was going to be 16 forever. But what’s done is done. I might not be able to rewind time but I’m now a lot wiser — by that I mean I’m now a sunscreen hoarder. That counts as wisdom, right?
Luckily, I found a few that sort of worked for me and my skin. Here are my thoughts on five of them:
This was my first ‘invisible’ mineral sunscreen and I bought it because it seemed like a ‘crowd favorite’. I love that it never leaves any whitecast and that it’s easy to blend. However, I can only use it once or twice a week and never on consecutive days as something about this doesn’t agree too well with my skin.
I fell in love with this sunscreen a few months ago because of it’s lovely texture and ingredients. The only downside is that I don’t feel that SPF 16 is enough to combat Singapore’s harsh sun and my skin is already sun damaged. (review)
This is more than a sunscreen. It’s an anti-aging product and that’s the reason why I used this for years. I love how apart from my facial oil, I didn’t have to worry about applying extra serums every morning. It might take some time and skills to blend it nicely, though. (review)
This seems to have been renamed to Pacific Everyday Sheer Coverage. It’s like a toned down, less oily version of the Moisturizing Face Screen. It has SPF20 and is supposed to be enough for daily protection. I reviewed the earlier version of this, the Anti-Aging Face Serum, years ago but MVO since changed the formulation a bit and, of course, the name.
This is the newest addition to my collection. I wear this on my face and my arms during really sunny days. Although it’s not too thick, it’s also not that easy to blend and it can be a bit drying due to the higher zinc oxide content.
What’s your current favorite sunscreen?
Maybe I can add it to my growing natural sunscreen collection!
