Clear Zinc Sun Lotion SPF 50
3.0
Created with Sketch.

a month ago

This sunscreen is "clear' because it contains so little zinc oxide which is only good for short incidental sun exposure. It's not good enough for prolonged periods under the sun, especially where I live, as the active ingredient is only 5%. Not good enough for UVA protection which is the more damaging rays even though it's advertised as "broad spectrum". Also, this is so oily and shiny that my face looked like a grease ball right after application. The oily look didn't dissipate even after the sunscreen dried. Since I already have an oily complexion, the finish is not ideal for me. It also stings slightly upon application. Not sure what ingredient is causing that. The only positive thing I can say is it doesn't feel tacky even in the high humidity where I live and it has no scent but that's about it. I picked this up as an emergency since I ran out of my HG sunscreen and it was very cheap. I only wear it around the house and for running short errands. For that purpose, it's adequate.

CVS Purifying Clay Facial Mask Avocado And Oatmeal

I was at CVS and bought this not paying attention, just assuming it was the Freeman clay mask. Once I got home, I decided I'd give it a try. The mask is green but comes out pretty runny if you don't shake it. Once applied, the dries pretty well (quickly for me, ten minutes tops) and is a decent enough dupe for the Freeman mask. My pores look smaller but it is drying, so I try to apply a thick moisturizer afterwards. The scent is fairly mild and I feel it does what it claims, but I wouldn't repurchase this one. I can usually get other, better quality masks on sale at comparable prices.

I bought it for my daughter who burns no matter what sunscreen we use. It 100% worked. I applied it generously and as directed and walked away from a full day at the beach with a very happy kid who didn’t have to deal with sun burn rituals and days of peeling.
