It’s Not Just the Face: What You Didn’t Know About the Sun and Your Body

As warmer weather draws to a close, you may be storing away your wide brim hats and applying thinner layers of SPF.

About the product

What Is It:

Play it more than safe in the sun with this new and improved sunscreen from Klairs that not only protects skin, but also hydrates and evens out skin tone. Its SPF 40/PA++ shields skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and heat (infrared light), a major culprit in premature aging. Meanwhile, restorative ingredients like Niacinamide and Hydrolyzed Collagen help skin retain moisture, brighten the complexion, and fend off dehydration and wrinkles caused by sun exposure. Guaiazulene, loved for its anti-inflammatory and calming powers, gives this sun lotion its refreshing blue hue and evens out red skin tone. Suitable for sensitive, red, dry, and oily skin types, this creamy formula is lightweight in texture, applies smoothly onto skin, and leaves a natural, weightless finish without an oily residue and white cast.

A lightweight formula that is fairly easy to blend in. True to the name, it has a slight grey blue tint to it, but once rubbed in, it sinks in without a white residue. No sticky feeling, which was great.

I wish it was SPF 50, but 40 is okay, provided with regular re-application.
