Re'equil Sheer Zinc Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++ Mineral sunscreen: Fragrance-free, essential oil-free, alcohol-free and no other nasties! FIIINNAAALLLYY available in India by an Indian brand!!! YAY! :D
I was a bit apprehensive when I saw the silicone-based ingredient list coz in the past I've used other silicone-based sunscreens which is SPF30 PA+++ and it tends to clog my pores and breaks me out around my nose & chin (oily T-zone). This particular sunscreen had fragrance as the last ingredient. I used it for 2-3 years without any issues but it's been breaking me out since last year. Most other sunscreens irritate my skin due to fragrance in it as I also have sensitive skin. This Re'equil sunscreen didn't do any of that :) I've used it it a few times now and I love that it's lightweight and doesn't give a nasty white cast, neither does it make my skin oily/sticky within 3-4hrs. of applying unlike most other sunscreens. It has a soft-matte finish, slightly nude-pink tint on my skin (I'm NC42). It stays matte pretty much all day long. Normal to dry skin people make sure to moisturize well as it might cling to dry patches. I like that it isn't super expensive too. Korean sunscreens(Rs.1400+ for 60ml) were touted to be great until the recent scandal. But that price tag is not only steep, it also came with customs, import fees, etc. not practical for me.
I'm going to repurchase once I've emptied this as investing in a good mineral sunscreen not only protects you from Skin Cancer but is also the best anti-ageing skincare product ;) I've a 6-step Korean skincare routine and I use this as my last step in my morning routine to comfortably seal it all in.
Here's hoping that the SPF rating on this is regulated though *fingers crossed* wouldn't wanna deal with any false claims!
