This product claims to moisturize and protect skin from the sun with daily use. It’s both a physical and chemical sunscreen as it contains titanium dioxide (physical, UVB, UVA) and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (chemical, UVB). It also contains 55% carica papaya fruit water, 5000ppm carica papaya seed oil, 750ppm carica papaya fruit extract, 100 ppm papain, jojoba oil, niacinamide, and adenosine.
I love how sleek and simple the packaging design is. Though it would be better if it comes with a pump so I get a consistent amount each time.

I’ve been using this on and off for 6 days, mainly because it gave me tiny white heads if I use this all day everyday. My sensitive skin can only take a thin layer of this every other day.
It has a creamy texture and blends out easily if applied in a thin layer. However, to get sufficient protection, I’d have to live with a white cast on my fair and warm skin tone. No biggie when I’m home since it doesn’t give a whole ton of protection anyway. It also leaves behind a greasy finish, so I wouldn’t recommend this for hot days, physical activities or oily skin peeps. On dry skin peeps, this does give a nice hydration.
I have mixed feelings about this suncreen, on one hand it hydrates and contains amazing skin-loving ingredients but on the other hand, white cast and minimal protection. I’ll have to try this again in the winter when my skin is fairer and drier.
