Promising review:

“Just what I needed. Seriously, I have tried several different sunscreens for the face and a lot of those were oily and left a white cast on my face. For reference, I am perpetually tanned thanks to my islander skin haha! I tried korean brands but found them to be expensive for their size and the amount of product you get. I went on a limb and purchased this not expecting much, but, it has definitely delivered and more! I tested it in sunny Cabo San Lucas last month, and it stayed put on my face. Didn’t drip down, didn’t oil up, and really helped to keep sun exposure to a minimum (of course I wore a hat as well). There was one day I forgot to wear my hat, and only applied this (before setting off to Chileno Beach) and I did get a nice glow but didn’t get any sunburn. So, I will definitely be repurchasing, and will continue to, unless I have any future adverse skin reactions. Till then, this is my ONLY suncreen..”

Promising review:

“I have mild melasma (darker pigmented areas) on my face. Being out in the sun without protection makes the melasma spots become darker. I’ve been using this sunscreen daily for six months and it has made such a difference! Even without makeup on, my spots are barely visible. I’m not saying that wearing this sunscreen will rid you of melasma. But, protecting your skin from the sun will make the darker pigmentation fade dramatically. I wear this sunscreen under my makeup and it is not greasy at all. I can be outside for hours and this sunscreen does an amazing job of protecting my skin.”

5. If there’s a brand out there that you can trust with your eyes blindfolded it 10001% HAS to be Cetaphil!! Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer with Sunscreen, SPF 50 issa OG sunblock that’ll leave your skin feeling settled and radiant as ever.

Promising review:

“I have used Cetaphil products for years, in cream, for the night and extra moisturizing during the day. I have been using expensive department store day time 15 SPF but am tired of department store prices, no matter how many gifts with a purchase they give me. The Cetaphil is SPF 50 and costs 1/3 the price of my former moisturizer. It has chemical and physical sunblock so use sparingly to keep from having a white face. The texture is smooth and creamy, no fragrance added but the natural odour is slight and not unpleasant. I use on face, neck and chest. I just changed it to subscribe and save because I was so pleased. Non-irritating on my sensitive skin, high SPF and considerably cheaper than the previous moisturizer.”

Buy it from Amazon for AED 108.52.
