The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Power Long Lasting Sun Cream (SPF50+ PA+++) Review

The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Power Long Lasting Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ 

I have been an intentional sunscreen avoider for I don't even remember how long. And it was only after I saw a picture of my face that I realised, that, not being keen on sun protection can do a lot more damage than you can even fathom; how I wished I could turn back time and make sun protection a top priority alongside moisturisation so as not feel so regretful years later.

Dullness and tanning are my major skin concerns. And because of my negligence towards protecting my skin from the harmful sun rays, I'm one blogger who hasn't tried a lot of sunscreens. Neutrogena ultra sheer dry touch has been my skin's only companion, that too in summers when my skin gets oily. Before that, I don't clearly remember if I have used any other sunscreen or not. But the sunscreen that I'm gonna be talking about today is from the Korean skincare brand the face shop. My brother was travelling so I asked him to get some stuff from the duty-free shops and this sunscreen is one of them. Thankfully I got the 50ml size. You'll soon find out why I'm happy that I didn't buy the full 100ml size. Just keep reading:)

Packaging

It comes in a pale golden tube with a shiny metallic orange cap. The packaging is very convenient and the nozzle dispenses just the right amount of cream everytime you use it. It's travel-friendly. The cap closes tightly on the tube without having to worry about any spillage in your bag. Aesthetically also, it looks quite appealing.

Texture and Formula

The texture of this sunscreen feels like a mixture of liquid foundation and a cream. The consistency is neither too runny nor too thick. It does get absorbed quickly, it gives a matte finish and because I tried it on my dry skin, it felt a little patchy but after few minutes that feeling narrowed down. And, when I tried it on my hand (which is not as dry as my face), it blended in beautifully without applying much effort. Also, it's lightweight, non-greasy and doesn't leave a white cast. The formula of this sunscreen is best suited for people with oily skin. A very good sunscreen for hot summer days.

Tint

The only thing about this cream that doesn't work for me is its natural beige tint. It is a cool pinkish sort of milky white beige colour that doesn't suit my complexion. The tint just makes my face appear unnaturally whiter. Maybe, it'll suit someone with a pale complexion with a very strong cool undertone. The only way I make this work for me is that I use very little quantity of this cream and blend it all over. That way, it doesn't look crazy white on my Indian medium to fair skin tone.

Sun Protection

It delivers pretty strong protection from the sun with an SPF of 50+ and Pa+++ which lasts for hours. Thus, giving adequate protection from both UVB and UVA radiation. Also, it contains sunflower sprout extracts that help in combating acne and providing anti-aging benefits by making your skin less sensitive to the sun.

Overall, It's a really good mineral sunscreen containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, especially in summers for people with oily skin. It would have become my absolute favorite if and only if its tint wasn't so concentrated. I still make it work for me though. I'm just glad I didn't buy the full size. The full 100ml size retails for Rs.2190 in India on nykaa.com. So I'd advise you to buy this only if you think the shade will match your skin tone otherwise you can skip this sunscreen 😊

And finally, a very happy new year everyone! I know I'm wishing very late but the first month of the year January isn't over yet. I hope 2018 fill our lives with a lot of happiness, strength and positivity. Happy New Year :)

  1. I have never been a fan of tinted sunscreens. I feel you need to apply more amount of sunscreen to protect yourself. And if its tinted, we can use only small quantity. So it defeats the entire purpose of a sunscreen. Thanks for sharing this. I will skip it..
