I recently received some sunscreen from Colorescience that I’m not particularly in love with but then again I don’t absolutely hate it. I received the Daily UV Essentials which consists of the Daily UV Protector & the Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen. At $78 for this kit, I think that the look and feel of the containers are not up to par with such a high price point. The Unforgettable Broad Spectrum Brush-On Sunscreen has SPF 50, came in a medium shade and is super invisible. I was hoping to see a little more even skin tone but I could barely see a difference in the color on my face. I only knew it was there because my face would look more matte so I only used this over the UV Protector.
The Daily UV Protector has a whipped formula that takes a while to blend out and doesn’t look pretty as it’s being rubbed in. When I finally rub it all in, for a few moments it makes my skin look gray but that fades away quickly and eventually looks more natural. I must say, I really liked how my skin looked.
Overall, there’s nothing I hate about these products but don’t feel it’s worth so much money and could do without the whipped formula to enjoy the whole experience.
