MD Solar Sciences Mineral Screen Gel SPF 30+- reviewed and rejected
Nevertheless, I have paid the price. Despite starting to use sunscreen diligently in my early 20s, I have had to have several pre-cancerous moles removed. As you can imagine, I’m now obsessive about sunscreen and wear it daily – rain or shine.
I was excited to try out MD Solar Sciences Mineral Screen SPF30+ ($24.95) due to the brand’s claims: great for sensitive skin, paraben free, quick drying, silky feel, won’t clog pores and environmentally friendly. Unfortunately, my experience with the product was less than ideal. It felt like a greasy film when I put it on my face and the smell reminded me of petroleum jelly. It did not soak into my skin within a few minutes and left a white hue/residue on my face. Not a fresh way to start the day. During the day, it eventually soaks in, but personally I couldn’t make this product a part of my skincare regime. I’ve definitely tried other sunscreen products that are much more pleasant.
