In Search of - A Non-Whitening Sunscreen
I’ve been really good about using sunscreen on my face for the past few months, pretty much getting some on everyday no matter where I am going, if anywhere. However, I still can’t seem to get used to the ones that leave the white behind that takes a few to absorb and makes your face greasy. I think it’s the protecting zinc inside that does this but that waiting time makes me reluctant to apply it at all so I went on a hunt. One I came across that has a low white factor, as I’m calling it, is from the PETER THOMAS ROTH line. It’s their Max Daily Defense Moisture Cream SPF 30 and not only does it block the sun’s rays but it’s also a super moisturizer for the skin. It contains the major antioxidants vitamins A and E and also Sodium Hyaluronate, which helps with the skin’s elasticity. And there is pretty much no greasiness to deal with here, so that saves time in the morning. $42/1.7oz @ sephora.com.
This product contains Propylparaben, which is seen by some as an ingredient of concern.
