Discover the reef safe formula that is the Sukin SPF30 Sheer Touch Face Sunscreen Light/Medium 60ml which is developed without chemical absorbers oxybenzone & octinoxate which may be damaging to coral reefs and sea life. Designed with daily use in mind the UVA & UVB broad spectrum protection is provided by the highly stable and non-irritating zinc oxide that acts as a physical block rather than chemical sunscreen ingredients that absorb them. I personally like zinc oxide because its offers other benefits which are helpful to the skin such as treating skin-irritations and healing wounds while even though it can leave a white cast, tinted versions are now available to counteract that problem.

Application Of The Sukin SPF30 Sheer Touch Face Sunscreen Light/Medium 60ml.

Presented in a tube for easy dispensing it is required to apply the required amount which is two finger lengths or two teaspoons 20 minutes before any sun exposure. Reapplying every two hours or more frequently when sweating and/or if you are swimming (the formula is not water resistant) is required but reapplication is made easier with this formulation if your wearing makeup by dispensing the required amount onto a beauty blender and reapplying over the top. The Australian made sunscreen is vegan friendly and cruelty-free while the full ingredients are as follows:

Sukin SPF30 Sheer Touch Face Sunscreen Light/Medium Or Medium/Dark.

The Sukin SPF30 Sheer Touch Face Sunscreen is available in either light/medium or medium/dark shades but don't be put off by the colour that you see when dispensing the product. It does appear darker to begin with but glides over the skin easily and disperses the colour excellently to be sheer with a slight tint before absorbing quickly. I was quite surprised on how lightweight it feels on the skin and does not feel greasy or sticky (even throughout the day) while a slight scent can be detected but soon disappears after five minutes. It does not ball-up or flake off and because there are no chemical sunscreen ingredients included in the formula you wont get that dreaded stinging or watery eyes!
