I'm not sure why I bought this??
It was on sale and I was weak and in search of a more affordable sunblock option. When I received the product, the label on the packaging threw me off a bit but I dismissed it as me just judging a book by its cover. However, when I tried pumping the product out it simply wouldn't dispense. I tried shaking the bottle first, and I think that worked but when I tried to pump the product out again it just flew right out of the nozzle to who knows where. So it dispenses VERY VERY messily. I then tried applying it on skin - it looked like oil being dropped into water. The very runny formula started separating, and I remember thinking to myself I had never seen a sunblock do that ever? What was worse was when I tried rubbing it into my arm, two things happened: 1) to my horror, the product started pilling, or turning into a fine white dust that fell off my skin, and 2) most of the sunblock stuck to my fingers in a sticky, powdery form. I tried it out a few more times under different circumstances like dispensing a little at a time and patting it in instead of rubbing it, but the results all ended up the same -- unsatisfying. I tried it out on my face, and apart from the unattractive white cast (more like white mask), it also pilled on my face. Some of the product that didn't pill on my face dried up too quickly, forming a white paste that was a little difficult to remove. All in all, this is a wildly disappointing product, which saddens me because I wanted so badly to like it, what with it being an affordable option, a local brand, and having stellar ingredients in its list like Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid. Sad all around :(
