I Thought I Could Never Use Sunscreen Again—Til I Met Neutrogena Ultra Sheer

My skin is oily but not so oily that you could fry an egg and bacon, oily in the sense it could make my face look a bit shiny and dewy. Sunscreen before is not my betーit leaves a white cast and its sticky, because of titanium dioxide that most sunscreens has. Titanium dioxide is the main and active ingredient in sunscreens that protects our skin from harmful uv-rays causes of darkening and colagen breakdown in our skin. I am currently using two sunscreens Clarins UV Plus HP SPF40 (bestest sunscreen ever!) and this Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF50 (second best)ー I am so thankful I came accross with these product because it suits my oily skin type for their light weight and sheer formula, I could wear this under makeup without any worries.

IMG_7001My experience in using the product Living in place where there is a constant change in humidity and air is tough, where buying of beauty items are crucial, it may work on your skin but could not compensate with the weatherーso the solutions are understanding more our skin with a little consideration on the weather. A tropical country like ours, is fun yet irritating most of the timeーthat is why I didnt use sunscreens ever again I’ve tried Nivea and it give sunscreen a bad name and I cursed sunscreens after that. Until I met Clarins and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF50 it is so light weight leaving no residue, It is best to use daily even indoor because uv-rays can penetrate through glass windows, curtains and even the flourescent light on our rooms has uv rays. This is my third step of my beauty routine after the moisturizer. I use Clarins on a long ride and swimmingーI want to extend the use of this product since the price is 6x higher than Neutrogena Ultra Sheer. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer is the inexpensive counterpart of Clarins UV Plus HP SPF 40 and I just love it. One word to describe Neutrogena Ultra Sheerー”AWESOME” End of story. and oh! btw I am on my third bottle.IMG_7007Pros Inexpensive quality sunscreen. Counterpart of Clarins Uv plus HP. Lightweight great for oily skin. Great as makeup base but not as a makeup primer. Packaging is very hygienic, nice and handyーNo spill. Skin can easily absorbs, not sticky at all. Face feels smooth. Non-comedogenic which mean it wont clog your pores. Nice matte finish. Helioplex element: Covers the complete UVA/UVB spectrum by the full power of two sunscreens that is Avobenzone and Oxybenzone.
ConsNothing.IMG_7066Oh! i have to end this review and it is time for me to chill outdoor and enjoy some fruit shakeーwhat a perfect life under the sun,yayy!

Love, Athena
