Review of L'Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Liquid Silk Sunshield For Face SPF 50 by SugarFreeSheila
First, I love this oil-free sunscreen - love it. Will definitely repurchase. Not only that, I waited until after my fifth day in a row of wear to review it here.
QUICK STATS ...
Packaging: Small & sleek, and in the amount of 1.7 fl oz (50 ml). Makes the liquidy/clicking sound when you shake it. You've seen this packaging before - but be advised not all of these sunscreens are created equal in terms of their respective UVA-blocking ingredients OR cosmetic elegance.
Texture: Watery/runny. Not like lotion, and not at all thick or sticky.

Eye Sting Factor: None - and I insist on applying SPF over upper eyelids & all the way up to the lower lashline.
Balling-Up Factor: None. Foundation looks great on it, with no pencil eraser bit-related issues. That is another dealbreaker for me.
Breakout Factor: None for me.
Bonus: Vitamin E & White Grapeseed.
