Hit or Miss: Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid

Happy Labor Day! Sadly, the weather isn’t feeling much like fall. The NYC heat is still booming which means that we still need to get that SPF all over our bodies and especially our face! I discussed SPF in a past post and how the higher the SPF, the better the protection of course. My issue with sunscreen is that it’s GREASY! I know there are spray sunscreens but when I spray sunscreen on my face, I don’t feel like I’m getting everything! So, I invested in a lightweight SPF formula for your face and here are my thoughts.

I bought this product because 1) I heard Algenist has great skin products and 2) it’s lightweight and has an SPF of 50. I’ve been using it for a month and I can honestly say it’s great! It’s oil free, lightweight, fast absorbing, and a little goes a long way. The best part of it thought is that it’s silky NOT greasy. I apply it before my primer and it’s dry within 2 minutes. Also, it doesn’t break me out. Other sunscreen have a tendency to make me an oil well and cause breakouts. This product is a HIT hands down. The price is $26 for 1 oz of product and while that may seem ridiculous, a little goes a long way. I use about 5 drops and I’m good to go. You also have to think about all it offers because you’re most likely not going to find something with the same quality and SPF for a cheaper price. I’d recommend it to anyone because every one needs sun protection!
