    It’s a shame it doesn’t live up to it’s claims but it’s good it’s a nice everyday one for you if you aren’t in the sun a lot :)

    Hope that the first week of 2019 is off to a great start for you and you are having a nice weekend :)

    Sun screen with rose touch, that just sounds amazing <3

    Damask rose extracts? Sold! haha, that truly is a beautiful inclusion though. And ten thousands times YES to the minimal blush and white packaging. Too pretty! x

    This was such a fabulous review. I have been looking for a sunscreen that benefits my skin while also protecting me and, on the surface, I would have assumed this one fit the bill. This really is such a great reminder to always check the ingredient list! I hope your year is off to a fabulous start!

  6. Ashley says:

    Oh this looks absolutely AMAZING!! I can’t wait to try! Love all your photos too!



  7. I love how detailed your review is! I’ve never heard of this product, but from your review, it looks really promising. Texture is definitely a big component of a great SPF product.

  8. Dorota says:

    Technically putting something untrue in the advertisement is illegal, isn’t it? I hate when producers lie about ingredients – if it’s allowed, then, for example, how can we know if our milk is really dairy free or not?

  9. Chanel says:

    Sunscreen is so complicated. The eo’s bother me too! Why add one more ingredient for such a already complicated product?

  14. It is odd that they claim Hyaluronic Acid and then don’t include it – this kind of thing is so easy to notice, so they had to know they would get caught on this one.

    Thank you for sharing! :) This looks like some pretty useful stuff. Not sure if I would like the smell though.

  16. This sounded so promising until I got to your deep dive into the ingredients. Like what’s up with the shadiness? This probably wouldn’t be for me since I prefer something with HEV light protection in addition to SPF because blue light damage concerns me and I spend more time in front of my computer than outside.

    Wishing you and your family and wonderful holiday and a happy and healthy new year Jenny! xo

    • Jenny says:

      Exactly! I was so disappointed. They finally acknowledged their mistake though, so I guess it wasn’t intentional.

      Hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas and I wish you all a happy new year!

  17. I love your honesty, Jenny, thank you! This is definitely not for me as I spend a lot of time outdoors.

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you Shireen! I definitely wouldn’t wear this, or really any physical sunscreen outdoors personally. Read a journal the other day about how physical filters aren’t as effective as chemical ones!

    The packaging is honestly so beautiful!
