Ever since my skin condition and brightness improved with proper skincare routine, getting ready has been fast and easy. I no longer go through a full high coverage foundation routine unless I am heading to an event. My everyday face routine consists only BB cream or CC cream or tinted sunscreen with translucent powder to keep the shine at bay. My recent go-to favourite is this, Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen.
Before Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen landed on my review desk, I have not been using any tinted moisturizer for quite some time. I am someone who love her full coverage makeup. Let’s get real here. I do not have a good skin to begin with. This tinted sunscreen is my quick 5-minutes get ready in a snap type of product. Not only it is a “UV Chemical-Free” tinted sunscreen/BB cream that treats, hydrates, protects, primes and covers the skin, it is also packed with youth promoting antioxidants including astaxanthin that help fight free radical damage. And I heard this vegan tinted sunscreen provides anti-inflammatory properties, especially beneficial for those with rosacea, acne, and melasma. Red algae and certified organic aloe vera, jojoba, sunflower, astaxanthin, pomegranate, cucumber, green tea and hyaluronic acid provide the face with additional sun defence and hydration.
First of all, I like that it comes in a pump tube packaging. And the silver well-made pump is not something made from some cheap material. With a pump dispenser, I can just pump some products onto my finger tips, apply and repeat as needed. Crucial if you wanna dash out of the house in 5 minutes lol.
I chose the shade “Light” after googling for swatches online. Since this is afterall a tinted sunscreen, I figure nothing can really go wrong with light coverage product like this. What else can go wrong, right? Left? Nah. I was also sent two other shades deluxe size to try. TNS Skin Lab website provide a detail explanation on how to choose the right shade.
Light – Suitable for light skin tones similar to Angelina Jolie, Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, Katie Holmes, Carrie Underwood and Hillary Swank.
Golden Light – Suitable for skin tones with a golden undertone similar to the following actress typically when they have a tan/spray tan: Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Sandra Oh.
Medium – Suitable for medium and olive skin tones similar to Eva Mendez, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Paul Patton & Kim Kardashian.
Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen is an all-in-one product that Treat, Hydrate, Protect, Prime, and Cover. It didn’t say anything about not using skincare prior but since this is my go-to product when I need to get ready in 5-minutes. I only use a toner, eye cream and then this. It provides sufficient moisturization for my skin without making it looking oily. I was expecting tinted sunscreen to be oily like every other product in the market, but not this one. It still gives my skin a little bit of shine and that does not bothers me. My skin has changed from oily to dry due to aging so no complain with anything that can plump up my skin!
When I received the package, I opened it up immediately and apply it on my face. Within 15 minutes I feel an itch, then the itch became so intense I have to remove it. It reminds me of the past skin allergy I had so I was worried. I did not see any red patches on my skin thereafter so I tried it the next day. Same thing happened. I was devastated. Really really devastated as I knew this product will be so useful for me now that I don’t wear much base makeup. Other people would have given up on the product altogether but not me. I decided to try again after a few days and guess what? No itch! And till today there was no itch! I am able to wear this from day to night without any issue at all 🙂 . I am so glad I did not give up trying otherwise I would have missed this wonderful product. Oh and, there is no funky scent at all. Natural product can smell really bad sometimes and this one doesn’t. More reason to use this.
Below is the Before and After. You hardly can notice the difference except for a healthier looking, hydrated, plump up skin on the left side. Please ignore the uneven eyebrow pencil application. I tried a new eyebrow pencil and boy that pencil is intense. Going light handed is not my thing lol.
I always set any liquid product with a light sweep of powder. This is completely optional depending on your skin type and your preference. And with that I am ready! This product has been a life saver. I never dare to skip my day time skincare with any other product except for this Suntegrity 5-in-1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen. You are not suppose to but I did, cheekily! 😀
