I used this for several days and found it to be an excellent product. It went on easily and smoothly, and it was a good base for my foundation and blush. As promised, it stayed put during my gym workout. It’s also well priced and the tube is easy to pop in your bag – no excuse not to be covered!
Alba Botanica Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Mineral Protection for Sensitive Skin | $6.99-$11.99
This mineral sunscreen provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection against sunburn, skin cancer, and premature signs of aging. Made with mineral sunscreen ingredients, it’s water resistant and fragrance free. Ingredients include sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, aloe vera, grape seed oil, and vitamin E. The biodegradable formula is certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization and is free of oxybenzone, octinoxate, PABA, nano-sunscreens, and vitamin A.
All of the previously mentioned additional fun facts about the previous product also apply to this product! I tried this product for several days. Surprisingly, it was a little more difficult to apply than the product that had a higher SPF. But, once I applied it, it stayed put all day long. Although I preferred the Sport Sunscreen, this is still a solid product at a very reasonable price.
