- Lightweight, tinted formula
- No "sunscreen smell"
- More expensive than many sunscreens
I really love how this sunscreen smells like chocolate. It comes in a thick, creamy formula that is tinted, much like a tinted foundation. However, the color appears to be a global shade which adds only a hint of coverage. Used beneath a tinted powder, this is nice for light makeup days. However, the directions recommend using it over a moisturizer, which seems to be good advice. While the formula is a liquid, it absorbs quickly and isn't as hydrating as a traditional moisturizer.
This product is fairly gentle, using zinc as the active ingredient. I was a little confused at first by the lack of an SPF, but Annmarie Gianni posted this article which fully explains their reasoning. The full-sized formula is a bit of an investment at $40, so I recommend trying the sample first to see if you like it. For those who only want lighter coverage and don't use traditional foundation, this product might be a good option.
This product rates about a 3 on the EWG database, but it seems a little high for a product like this. Most of the ingredients are very gentle, especially when compared to other sunscreens. If you're looking for gentle sunscreen product that has many qualities of a tinted moisturizer, this could be a good choice.
