  • Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate boosts sun protection factor by protecting against UVB rays
  • Phospholipids & glycerin enhances the penetration of actives and also help maintain hydration levels and elasticity of the skin.

How to use?

  1. Is gel sunscreen physical or chemical based?
    Gel sunscreen is a chemical sunscreen that contains chemical UV filters which work by absorbing UV rays, converting them into heat and release from the skin surface.
  2. What skin types can use chemical sunscreen?
    Although suitable for all skin types, chemical sunscreens should be carefully used by people with sensitive skin conditions since it may cause certain light reactions such as inflammation or redness.
  3. How is chemical sunscreen better over physical sunscreen?
    Chemical sunscreen is designed to get absorbed and hence spreads and works smoothly on the skin without the skin feeling greasy or sticky. Also it does not leave any white cast when applied.
  4. Should I use sunscreen only in the summer?
    Sunscreen should  be used everyday and should be a part of your daily skincare regimen, not just in summer. You are exposed to UV radiations everyday when you step out. Hence, applying sunscreen is mandatory despite the season.
  5. How long should a 50gm sunscreen last?
    If you use sunscreen generously everyday on your face and neck  it will last for around 1-1.5 month.
  6. Can I apply makeup over sunscreen? Will it cause any pilling?
    Yes, you can put on make up after applying sunscreen on your face. Applying makeup above sunscreen will not cause any pilling. Just make sure that  the sunscreen sits well on your skin for about 5 minutes and then apply make-up.
  7. Is it safe to use methoxycinnamate?
    Methoxycinnamate is generally considered safe to be used in sunscreens but should be avoided by pregnant and lactating mothers.

Worst sunscreen ever for dry skin

I have used the sunscreen for 2 days only which I know isn't enough but it's so bad I had to leave a review. The first time I applied it I hated it and was immediately self conscious stepping out because it peels off like skin.. Not even kidding.. Even Without touching your face you could feel it's peeled residue all over your face and if you have applied makeup or even as simple as a powder on top of it then u are ready for the worst nightmare of your life. It just peels like skin and nothing u wear underneath it makes it any better. I mosturise my face with deconstruct mosturizer (which is a great product) but the sunscreen doesn't stay no matter what.. Hate it but have to use it up coz it's my money. Also the sunscreen is light pink in color and not gel like but very hard consistency.

great sunscreen

love the texture
absorbed real quick and didn't lave an oily residue
All sunscreen sweats me no matter what as I live in Kerala, for some reason sweating was minimal-that too in the T zone
I use tretinoin and my skin is adjusting to it - I thought this sunscreen would sting, but I didn't feel a thing.
Great product guys
PS
pls develop an undereye cream with actives
