My write-up on Sun Bum Sunscreen reviews

At long last, I have a sunscreen that doesn’t give me breakouts or a white cast on my face since it’s non-comedogenic so that it won’t clog pores. I’ve used Sun Bum Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion on the face and other parts of the body, and I haven’t had any burnouts or irritation due to it.

With this product, my sensitivities produce it extremely hard to track down something I can utilize. I was additionally enchanted to find that this Sunscreen is cruelty-free and vegan, as well.

It feels clean on the skin and is perfect for any beach or full sunshine trip, As it doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky or oily like other sunscreens spray. No allergic reactions and redness from sunburn occur using sun bum sunscreen products.

Some mineral sunscreens make my entire body look too white, won’t rub into my skin, and if they get on my clothes will even stain them, depending on what it is.

Some of them feel greasy, and I can feel it sliding throughout the day. Not this one. It absorbs into the skin and smells good. It’s like putting on lotion, not a greasy sunscreen like water gel sunscreen.

Sunscreen burns so bad when it gets on the eye area and nostrils. It caused me to be blurry and watery eyes. The added fragrance is quite firm which can be a problem for sensitive skin.

I would suggest a fragrance-free sunscreen for sensitive skin for the face, yet it generally comes down to preference.

Also, you can use this sheer, oil-free formula on your acne-prone skin. It’s likewise ideal for your body, particularly you get skin break out on your chest or back.

Sun bum moisturizing sunscreen lotion does not feel oily like other sunscreens and absorbs into my skin quickly. It is an excellent choice for oily skin types. The level of protection is incredible as I’m very fair-skinned and burn easily.

Sometimes I have to reapply at the beach throughout the day, but overall one application works great. Sun Bum is by far the best Sunscreen I’ve ever used.

It was a decent trade-off between the chemical sunscreens and the mineral. It is not 100% chemical-free, but it includes fewer chemical ingredients than other brands.
