Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 5042.00
What I Liked (The pros)
- Broad spectrum sun protection, SPF 50
- Tinted to avoid the white sheen many mineral suncreen's reflect.
- Absorbs well
A Few Cautions (The Cons)
- User needs to shake the bottle prior to each use
- Liquid, oily feeling texture is a little unusual for a daily facial sunscreen
- A little pricy compared to some broad spectrum sunscreen lotions
A broad spectrum sunscreen is essential for long-term beautiful and healthy skin. Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 sunscreen is a moisturizing mineral sunscreen that offers UVA/UVB protection.
Exuviance sent a Feeling Fit a sample of Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 sunscreen. I have been wearing it the past couple of weeks to prepare for this review.
My Experience Using Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 Sunscreen
My initial impression is that the lotion seems more like an oily serum and it separates easily. You always want to shake the bottle vigorously before applying Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector. This sunscreen is tinted with a sheer fleshy color.
It went on a little oily like an old-school tanning oil. I was pleased to discover that it quickly absorbed into my skin leaving my skin feeling smooth not oily. The slightly orange “flesh-tone” tint also is very sheer and faded into my skin leaving a slightly more even toned appearance.
From having used mineral sunscreens that contain Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, I know that a little tint is a good thing. Sometimes these ingredients can reflect a white sheen in photographs. Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector worked well with my fair skin, but I think it would work well with darker skin tones also as the tint is very sheer and may look better than the more common white sheen.
I found that Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector wears well under my makeup. I was so happy to discover this since it felt a little oily initially. My tips for new users is to thoroughly shake the bottle prior to application, apply, blend than wait a minute or so before applying other makeup. I typically apply before I dry my hair then apply my makeup after my hair is dry.
