Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Green People - Scent Free Sun Lotion SPF30

1.0

Aug/14/2017

With it being silicone-free, I was hoping it would be my HG sunscreen but this gave me awful hyperpigmentation spots!


Pros:
- Silicone-free! I love that this product doesn't have silicones (they cause my skin to break out) whilst still being relatively cosmetically elegant.
- organic ingredients
- uva + uvb protection
- Non-greasy/oily …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Sunsense Daily Face SPF 50 Invisible Tint Finish

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2017

Pros
- silicone-free (NB this applies to the more newly formulated version)
- easy to spread
- no white cast

Cons:
- oily and shiny finish. It feels really heavy, to the point where I can feel the product whenever I move my face. Its greasy texture also means it does NOT sit well under face mineral makeup at all. It causes it to melt, breakdown and look patchy after …

Mar/08/2017

Pros
- the blue tint cancels out redness and really brightens up my skin tone (however those who dislike white cast will not enjoy this)
-spf 40- good sun protection

Cons
- it balls up and looks SO patchy and flaky on my skin (other spf or skincare products don't do this). It just won't work over my regular skincare routine, even when I wait for each layer of …

I desperately wanted to like this as it's silicone free but this is the worst powder I've used.

CONS
- BREAKS ME OUT!

- non-buildable coverage …

Pressed Powders - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Face Powder

I like this powder a lot because it doesn't break me out. It's talc and silicone free which is so difficult to find in foundations.
It covers my redness well but not my spots and acne scars so I would say this gives light to medium coverage (leaning more towards light). However, whilst it does an excellent job of taking away shine, it can be very drying so be careful of using it …

My skin type: dehydrated, oily t-zone, acne-prone, sensitive.

Pros
- physical sunscreen (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) which is great for my acne-prone skin as I'm sensitive to chemical uv filters)
- controls oils very well, particularly on my t-zone which helps to keep my base makeup from melting/getting oily
- cream texture as opposed to milk
- effective …

Having a sneaking suspicion that this is breaking me out :'( I use this with a foaming net and I love how much foam this produces. However, whenever I use this I notice my skin clogs up, looks more red than usual, breaks out in the tzone area with small pimples, as well as at the sides of my face and at the temples.
Such a shame because I love the way it cleanses.

Will stick …

Pretty sure this is breaking me out :(

I ordered this as I was looking for a non-sticky/shiny finish, but unfortunately this sunscreen disappoints on both counts. I wore this underneath makeup and it left me so sticky and oily. The main issue for me is that whenever I wear this, I break out. I'm not sure which ingredient is the culprit.

Edit: yes this is definitely …

Sunscreen - KANEBO - Allie extra UV gel mineral moist SPF 50 PA+++

Dec/29/2015

As a sunscreen on its own, I absolutely adore this. However it is not quite HG, which I will explain why later.

I have sensitive, oily, dehydrated, acne prone skin. This sunscreen is perfect in that it offers both high uvb and uva protection and importantly, unlike biore uv watery essence, it does not break me out! It also helps my skin to heal and recover from breakouts (possibly due …
