Skinfood’s Tomatoe Sun Cream
Sun protection is always a must for my daily skincare. My skin tan’s easily but the thing the I most hate is when my sun burned skin starts peeling. So today’s something is. . .
Infused with tomato extracts, this cream not only protects your skin from the sun but also brightens and hydrates the skin. This non-sticky formula comes in a convenient squeeze tube that’s perfect to throw into your purse or beach bag so you’ll never have to go without it. For all skin types. Made in Korea. Purchased mine at Althea korea for $7.25.
How To Use:
After applying basic skincare, squeeze out a small amount onto hands and apply to face evenly avoiding the eye area, allowing it to sit for 10-15 minutes before exposure to sunlight for best results. Reapply as needed when you spend a lot of time outdoors.
Main ingredient: Tomatoe extracts
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene. A powerful antioxidant that offers many benefits for skin including protecting skin from UV rays, delaying skin aging and protection from skin cancer. Also known to clear acne, deep cleanse pores, fight premature aging and lighten skin.
The product came in a squeeze tube that easily dispenses the product.
My experience with the product:
Since it contained “zinc oxide, it was a chemical sunscreen which was better than okay for me since I have sensitive skin. As expected the cream had a white cast after applying. I only added a tinee tiny amount and blended it quickly since the formula dries up to a matte and powdery finish. The scent was not in any way tomatoes, but it smelled great!
This was my go to sunscreen for the past month and so far, it didn’t break me out.
When using this sunscreen, I prefer not to use any makeup on top of it. The powdery/matte finish didn’t last on my face and after an hour, my face started oiling up all over the areas where I applied the sun cream. I didn’t mind the “dewy look” for cooler places but just imagine how my face would turn out on hot and humid places. It may help in keeping my face from cracking up with dry patches. My face immediately looks brighter due to the white cream formulation. It does feel like a heavy cream in consistency so I had to dab just a few then blend it really well on my face to avoid streaks.
So I went out, walked around with by huge forehead exposed to the sun just to see how well this sun cream would perform under heat and sweat. As you can see, my forehead started looking like a grease pan. I took a snap while walking around. My face starting to sweat due to the heat and my evidently becoming “shiny” all over.
Overall, I liked it but not enough to re purchase it. It smelled really nice and protected my skin for a good 5 hours. This would probably work for lighter skin tones and dry skin types since it adds extra moisture as it sits on the skin especially on sweat. But I don’t recommend this for oily skin types like mine.
