My Thoughts on Neogen Physical Sunscreen

I was eager to try Neogen after looking into sunscreen reviews and a few recommended Neogen Dermalogy Day-Light Protection Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++ but during that time I didn't check out Neogen sunscreen ingredients. I just happened to saw this on sale so I thought it was a good deal to grab. After using it for a few months, this is my review on Neogen Protection Sunscreen.

Ingredients
Looking into Neogen Protection Sunscreen INCI list, its main sunscreen agent is Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. It contains Vitamin E and a lot of soothing and moisturising ingredients that safe for sensitive skin. However, the number of essential oils used in it is quite worrying but I'm unsure of its percentage. According to its label, Neogen's Dermalogy Protection Sunscreen is Eco-Certified and it only uses mild ingredients that don't harm the skin which makes it safe for sensitive skin. That might be true as I'm seeing fruit extracts and moisturising agents like Hyaluronic Acid included. But still, there are low rated comedogenic and irritating ingredients used.


Packaging
It has that future space vibe with its silver plastic tube. LOL... Simple and very pleasing to see. The tube does function well without having any problems with leaking and all. I also love that they created it sleek so it fits nicely in small pouches and I've been carrying this one in my work bag.


Texture
It's very light but creamy and a bit oily too. So applying it on the face is a smooth process, but if you put too much you'll find it hard to rub it in until all the white cast goes away, it may take some time. When its fully absorbed, it kinda smoothens the skin but at the same time, I feel it kinda drying too. Like my skin is a bit tight.


Scent-Wise
It has a strong scent of orange and looking at the ingredient list I ain't surprised.



Experience
I'm almost out of this sunscreen already as I've been using this in the office. I didn't find this suitable to be used outdoors because when I sweat this sunscreen tends to melt and it stings the eyes. So I kept this in my office bag until I started to work from home again which now I've been using this at home, but it still isn't my first choice. I didn't experience any bad reactions or irritations using this but I don't really seem to find this sunscreen pleasing enough. It gives a shiny finish to the skin, more to a dewy look, which I feel it should be great to use under makeup.


Overall Thoughts
I'm not really feeling it with this sunscreen, firstly because it tends to sting the eyes when I sweat but there's no problem using it in an air-conditioned room. Secondly, the finishing look it gives, the dewy skin feels like it looks too oily and shiny on my skin. LOL... The formulation also doesn't look that tempting at it was promoted as but I still trust that Neogen uses mild ingredients as I didn't experience any irritation whatsoever. If you look into best sunscreens to use, Neogen Dermalogy Day-Light Protection Sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++ fits all the criteria with its SPF and PA.



My Rate
Rate: 3/5
Repurchase: Nope, it doesn't really suite my taste and it's quite pricey for me.


Till then peeps!
