As I was preparing for my trip to Cancun last April, I was on the hunt for a good face sunscreen without any chemical ingredients as you normally find on sunscreen brands found in the drugstores. I originally started my search at Sephora, jumping on higher end brands for sun care products but the price for the amount I was about to get did not justify the need. I found this brand on the Ulta app and read reviews about it along with my own research. I was satisfied with what I had found out about the brand and this specific product, plus the retail price of $19.99 was fairly decent compared to the ones I originally saw at Sephora for over $35.
The packaging is pretty straight-forward, after all it is sunscreen. It comes in a squeeze tube with 2.0 fl oz of product. For the amount of product you are getting and the price, this is a good buy. The sunscreen has a light beige color, instead of white. It does not however, provide any face tint once applied. So if you are worried that it will leave a color to your skin, no need to as it will not. The consistency is nice. Not too heavy, not too thick, just a nice light consistency to coat your face with. This is a beautiful product, as it almost acts as a moisturizer and a primer (though it does not claim to do so). In my opinion, the name "Flawless Complexion" lives up to the expectation as it provides the skin an extra layer of "smooth skin" after application.
This definitely protected my face from the sun while on vacation. I also use it when I am going to be outdoors on a hot day such as hanging out by pool or when I am walking (exercising). It did not make me break out. There were no streaks of the sunscreen when I sweat (some sunscreens will leave a white trace when you sweat). It is also good for sensitive skin - it does not sting around the eyes area like most chemical sunscreen does.
I am really pleased with this product and this purchase. I would definitely repurchase.
