dsc00411

Everyone wants their skin perky, firm, winkle-free and always look like a 20 year old. Make-ups can help you hide your pigmentation, but they can hardly hide any wrinkles. One skin care product that can help you in this regard and you need it everyday is sunscreen. I know that lots of people hate sunscreen because it leaves their skin greasy, oily and uncomfortable. The modern skincare technology really makes sunscreen a completely different product. This Eucerin gel-cream sunscreen is an amazing product that makes you love to use it if you hate sunscreen before. 🙂

What is it?
A gel-creme texture SPF 30 sunscreen/moisturizer with both UVA/UVB protection for face and neck.

Who is it for?
Everyone especially those with combination to oily or acne-prone skin. This is a fantanstic daily moisturizer and makeup base.If you have combination to oily skin, I guess you are probably scared of sunscreen. I used to be as well. I remember the days that I feel so greasy all over my face before noon. This product will not give you any of those greasy feelings.

Does the product live up to its claim?
Totally!!!! This is a product that truly lives up to its claim. Once applied, it dries down very fast to a  matte finish. It is not sticky and not greasy. It is unbelievably comfortable. Even in the days with very high temperature, my skin feels comfortable. It is not your old fashioned sunscreen. If you are afraid of the oily and shiny finish that you usually consider sunscreen as, go ahead and try this one !!!

it quickly dries down to a very matte finish

How to use it?
For a daily moisturizer with sunscreen, apply everyday (yes, everyday!) before makeup (if you apply any) about 1-2 teaspoon(5ml to 10ml) to your face.This sunscreen offers a great makeup base and it does not create any flakes.

How about the ingredients? Causes of allergy or concern?
Overall, it is a product with very good, safe and efficient ingredients. Homosalate, ethylhexyl salicylate, phenylbenzimidazole sulfonic acid provide UVB protection and butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (avobenzone) provides UVA protection. Octocrylene also provdes UVB protection and helps stablizes UVA sunscreen actives.Fatty alcohols like cetearyl alcohol and behenyl alcohol  do not pose a risk of sensitizing skin.

This product is fragrance and paraben free. It is non-comedogenic,which means that it is unlikely to clog the pores and will not create concern for acne-prone skins. When I am on the beach, I keep reapplying this on my skin, and it never causes any concern for my super acne-prone skin.

What I don’t like about it?
Nothing. It is unbelievably reasonablly priced and really lives up to the claim. This product is not water resistent so if you apply it before you go swimming, the effect is not as effective.

Price
The price usually falls within the range of 11 – 16 euros, depending on where you buy.

Where to buy?
You can find it in your local pharmacy stores in the country that carries Eucerin line. On your country’s Eucerin website, there is usually the where to buy section that provides where you can find the product online/offline.

Would I buy it again? 
Totally!! In fact, I have used about 1 bottle every single month, ever since I found this product last April.
