Adding sunscreen to your skincare essentials entails a lot of benefits.
The most common and notable benefit is it protects your skin against the sun’s broad spectrum of harmful UV rays. Sunscreen actually reduces the penetration of UV rays into the skin and the onset of a variety of skin disorders. It is extremely effective at lowering the risk of developing a variety of skin cancers, particularly melanoma. Using this can also help protect against the harmful effects of premature aging or skin aging, allowing us to keep our skin looking youthful, radiant, and healthy.
Another benefit of sunscreen includes evening out one’s skin tone. Using it on your face helps to maintain an even complexion. Sun damage is one of the many causes of uneven skin tones, and using sunscreen on a daily basis can help to mitigate its effects.
However, the thought of wearing this skincare product every day doesn’t sit well with most people. Many people are concerned that sunscreen lotions will cause them to break out, make their skin appear oily, and, worst of all, will make them smell like sunscreen all day. Lucky for you, you will not be going through all kinds of local sunscreens to find the right one suited for your skin! Poly Cosmetics’ tinted sunscreen might be the one for you.

What’s in the Poly Beauty Sunscreen?
Formulated with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and collagen, the Poly Beauty tinted sunscreen has a broad spectrum SPF 40 PA++ and has a light tone-correcting formula. This tinted sunscreen reflects both UVA and UVB rays. And the best part? Unlike other tinted products out there, this one actually adapts to one’s skin tone.
As a makeup enthusiast, I have been trying different tinted moisturizers and sunscreens to add to my everyday makeup and this one from Poly Cosmetics did not disappoint. For reference, I am a morena and have normal to oily skin. So far, this did not make me break out. Applying it with my hands was a breeze. It was lightweight, non-sticky, not oily, and did not leave a white cast and a strong smell at all! The color of the product might leave you doubtful at first, but as you apply and blend it onto your skin, it will leave this radiant, smooth, and semi-matte finish that matches your complexion. This product retails only for Php 225.00 and can be purchased through Shopee.
