Unlisted Brand • Purple Prairie Sun Stick SPF 30 • Sunscreen
|Would buy this product again.||100%|
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Cool Hair: Red, Fine Eyes: Green
---No scent or flavour.
---Decent quantity of ZnO (but larger-size and no coating).
---FWIW: plant-based ingredients, organic, hand-made by everyday sorts of people in the USA, etc. (*shrug* just saying, for the record, and as these are attractive factors for some MUAers; do with this information as you will, not necessarily my thing.)
---Makes quite a good unscented underarm deodorant, as layer one of the Deodowich. Useful if traveling: the balm counts as a solid and doesnít gnaw into the precious 3-1-1 plastic-bag of carry-on liquids (Iím one of these anal types who prefer to travel minimalist and carry-on only).
---Hypothetical pro: I can imagine how this would be useful for an adult applying to a squiggly small child, holding them with one hand and the sunscreen stick with the other. Same goes for any other sunscreen stick: none of that comedy sunscreen-lotion flying around all over the place.
---The ingredients are so minimal this would be edible, too: again, useful with kids. (The same is true of several other stick sunscreens.)
---very whitening and greasy as a body sunscreen; would do at a pinch, and looks like it would be waterproof (with that amount of oil in it)
---body purposes: not exactly easy to apply on an adult
---face: no, breakout alert. I did try this (behind ear, classic lower-grade testing area) and a zit had started by the end of the day. Anywhere less dry and more irritable, like the chin or nose? No. That's speaking as a dryish person.
---lips: just about usable, and actually slightly better than Purple Prairie's lip SPF. Less whitening and lacks its dry issues, but is even greasier. Iím not sure how protective it ends up being: itís so greasy it slips off very easily. As with the PP lip: issues with lipstick on top.
---pet peeve: some yummy-mummy fear-mongering soppy greenwash nonsense on the manufacturer's site (they do like the EWG: need I say more?).
PRICE: 2 oz for around $10.50-14.50, depending on source; plus taxes and shipping.
