11 Apr 2018
by S. Safa

 

Last week I wrote a post on the different types of sunscreens, their differences, their pros and cons, etc. I promised I’d write a post on the sunscreens we sell in our webstore and categorize them according to the differences I discussed last week.  So here it is, my guide to our sunscreens. I will try to help you find a sunscreen that hopefully you will like. 
PS: I strongly recommend you reading last week’s post so you have a better understanding of sunscreens. 

Sunscreens for combo-oily skin

SPF 50
Physical Sunscreen
Texture: thick and creamy but spreads very easily and absorbs right away. Leaves a matte finish and absorbs sebum with Tea Tree extracts.
Cons: can leave a slight white cast, but fades away after you rub it in.
