UV rays are reflected by the snow and water and they can increase risk of sun damage. Winter or summer, sunscreen is important because skin damage can occur even on cloudy or hazy days.
I always have products with SPF, for body and face but I still ordered this product a while ago to take it with me to Barcelona, where I am going to be in the sun most days. I already used it several times and I really love it! Because I work as a beautician I always get asked about the products that I use and I think this review will be quite helpful!
Le Tan Daily Face Sheer Tint SPF 30+ is made in Australia, where it is also quite famous and the most trusted sun care brand! Now I know why everyone that uses this product loves it. So far I liked everything I had from Le Tan, they have one of the most amazing exfoliating mitts (gloves) I used, but the story with that glove is for another time and another article :)
Le Tan Daily Face Sheer Tint SPF 30+ comes in a 75 ml tube and is a multifunctional product (3-in-1); moisturizer, sunscreen and tint. Multifunctional products are the best for me, they save me a lot of trouble and there are so many benefits in just one tube, how great is that? Le Tan Daily Face Sheer Tint SPF 30+ was specially formulated for face and neck, but I advise you to use it on your cleavage also, the skin there is just like on your face: sensitive and easy to get sunburned.
This product is a tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 +, and it offers double sun protection against UVA and UVB, and this is very important because UVA are the sun rays that can cause premature aging and the UVB are the nasty ones that can cause sun burns and deeper skin damage. Always check if your face sunscreen offers UVA and UVB protection, you will be so surprised to find out how many don't have this double protection.
The cream has a nice formulation, is water based, fragrance free, no parabens, oil free, no mineral oils and non-comedogenic. This product is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Ooops , a little bit much :))
The cream is quite thick as texture but soft, almost like a mousse and easy to apply. It has a sheer tint, that might look a bit dark while it is in the tube, but once you blend or buff it into the skin, it becomes washed out and very subtle. It has a matte super light finish.
Le Tan Daily Face Sheer Tint SPF 30+ is not a foundation or a BB/CC cream, it is a face sunscreen with a very sheer tint and a very light coverage, but you can wear it also as a primer under your concealer or foundation. The light coverage will even your skin tone but will not cover any of your blemishes or dark circles. You can get an idea about the coverage from how it looks over my tattoo, and it was not even completely blended.
As a tinted moisturiser with SPF this product is fantastic on its own because of the way it feels on skin; silky smooth, not sticky or greasy at all and light as a feather. After using this product your skin will still look like skin and very nude.
Most of the time when I wear a face cream with a SPF higher than 15 it clogs my pores and leaves my complexion looking all dull with wide pores. Since I have this product I use it on a daily base, even if I wear no makeup and I never occurred irritation or clogged pores.
I think this product is quite unisex, it can be used by both sexes as it does not look like you're wearing any makeup. The finish is really matte and nude and it can prevent skin damage, aging and freckles.
This product doesn't have Zinc Oxide but uses other active ingredients: Octocrylene (protects skin from DNA damage ), Oxybenzone (ultraviolet light absorber and stabilizer, photo protective agent) and Phenylbenzimidazole sulfonic acid (UVB protecting agent). If you are allergic to any of these active ingredients you should not use this product, it is always better to test the product on a small area of skin.
Before you use the product, please read all the instructions from the box! Avoid contact with eyes and do not use this product on infants with age under 6 months.
I think this cream is a hidden gem, I am very happy I found it also in the Netherlands at Beach-shop.nl, and it's not expensive at all: 13,90 euro for 75 ml.
From my personal experience, I rate this product with 5 out of 5 stars and I would recommend it to a friend!
