Now, I still love and use them, but I am always on the hunt for something new, especially that they have their flaws. One has lemon oil in it, which can make your skin react in the direct sunlight, and the other one is way too thick for summer.
Recently while browsing through Naturisimo, I stumbled across MyChelle Sun Shield SPF 28 Unscented. I discovered MyChelle’s products at Whole Foods in the US few years ago, and have been a big fan of them ever since, but I have somehow never tried their sunscreen. Few weeks back I decided to give it a go and I have to say that I do not regret it as it is (almost) perfect.
It has a quite dense consistency, but is in no way heavy. It absorbs instantly without leaving white cast, thanks to their ZinClear technology. I like that it leaves a matte finish, which makes it perfect for hot summer days, when the last thing I want is a sweaty, shiny face. It also works great as a make-up base.
It’s a safe full spectrum UVA/UVB sun defence without any phototoxic essential oils and it’s also fragrance free. It’s suitable even for those with very sensitive skin and infants. It contains soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, both of which calm sun-irritated skin.
It seems to tick pretty much all the boxes for me. However, I wish they also made it with SPF 50, as I am extremely pale and burn in the sun very easily. Nevertheless, I can see myself using this one a lot this spring and (very liberally) in the summer.
