redness, irritation, breakouts, peeling
18 y/o. sensitive combination skin. acne prone. I bought this sunscreen from the discount chemist nz website, but I can't leave a review there for some reason. I haven't brought any new products into my routine, the reaction I experienced could only be from this sunscreen. I use the recommended amount of 1 tsp sunscreen for both my face and neck and It was very greasy, the second day I lowered it to 1/2 tsp and it was still not absorbing into my skin. When I cleansed my face the first day, I immediately noticed many more clogged comedones and redness but I thought I would continue for a couple more days just to make sure it wasn't my application or any other external factors. By the third day the redness and irritation had gotten so much worse, I honestly thought I had forgotten to wear sunscreen. I had so many spots on my chin especially, but others too dotted all over my face. My pores appeared much bigger and the sebaceous filaments on my nose and cheeks were darker and bigger in appearance. My skin was red and peeling by my nose and chin and the sunscreen appears to have completely obliterated my skin barrier. I also happened to cry in this sunscreen (don't ask), and the area around my eyes and cheeks burned pretty strongly because of the tears. I've never had such a strong reaction to a skincare product in such a short amount of time, such a shame, waste of money :(

Red Spots
I have tried both the sensitive protect and the regular protect and moisture. For some reason, the sensitive protect seems to give me little red bumps on my skin. They went away after I stopped using this particular sunscreen, just something to note about this product.

I have this sunscreen in all sizes and it is 100% my favourite sunscreen as it is intensely hydrating that quickly absorbs into my skin. I have sensitive skin and this is absolutely lovely. It also has beautiful ingredients.
