Cetaphil is known to be good for sensitive skin. I have used their cleanser and love it even though it does not create enough bubbles for my liking (I like bubbles…). Anyway, when they released their sun protection range a few (or more) months back, I jumped at it. I have not been wearing sun protection at all times during the day as you should be doing. Here is why you wear sun protections: protection against the sun’s UV rays which could cause skin cancer and early aging. UV rays can be pretty damaging. Have you ever left a newspaper in direct sunlight for a week or more? It changes colour! (Try it out at home). Imagine what it can do to your skin cells, especially the weaker cells on your face and especially around your eyes… might regret it 30-40 years from now! So, start when you’re young! One handy tip, make sure to be generous when applying it or you will not be getting the required sun protection.
This product is a creamy-based product. It does have a slight “sunblock” smell but it fades fairly quickly (usually 10-15 minutes). I feel that this product absorbs fairly quickly into the skin as well, leaving my skin non-greasy. This is what I enjoy most about this product. Most sunblocks leave a fairly oily residue and leaves the skin quite shiny! I personally do not enjoy the oily/shiny feeling because at the end of the day, it just makes me feel weighed down with more natural oils from my own skin. One thing I noticed about this is, when applying make up over this sunblock, make sure the sunblock has been completely absorbed into the skin (roughly 10-15 minutes) or it will cause you to be quite oily at the end of the day.
I will definitely buy this product again because it does not smell bad and it absorbs very quickly. The fact that it is for sensitive skin also makes it more likely for me to buy the product. The price is also a good factor in my decision to repurchase (I’ve been using this for a few months every day and it has not run out).
