Hydrating Face Sunscreen SPF50+

The Hydrating Face Sunscreen SPF 50 it’s a hydrating and lighweight sunscreen that absorbs into the skin like magic with a non greasy, matte finish. Let me tell that when I have applied this sunscreen I didn’t even feel it on my skin, works amazing under makeup and don’t peel at all. It is also vegan friendly!

Eniched with Vitamin E and glycerin makes my skin feels very nourish and hydrate. It works amazing when I reapply it at every two hours, I have applied for like 4 times in a day without wiping it off my face and did it feel like I was applying it for the first time. No eye stinging even with generous application over the eyelids.

It’s suitable for all skin types, even sensitive because is fragrance free, but if your skin is too dry I recommend you to put a moisturising cream before you apply the Bali Body’s sunscreen.

Application:

Before applying makeup, use sunscreen as the last step of your morning skincare routine. Allow 10-15 minutes for the sunscreen to set and establish an even layer on the skin before applying makeup.

Hydrating Body Sunscreen SPF50+

A lighweight sunscreen with a broad spectrum UVA & UVB protection that you can use every day. This non greasy, dry touch formula absorbs quickly into the skin and is water resistant up to 4 hours.

Final thoughts

First of all I love the packaging design. That light blue makes me think about summer and the waves of the sea. And also the applicators are really use to apply. Like I’ve said before these will lokk amazing in my summer bag.

Honestly I realy liked these 3 sunscreens products. They sits perfect on my sensitive oily acne prone skin and I love that they did not caused me any irritationor breakout.

How much it costs?

It’s a really affodable sunscreen for 140g you will pay only 21$ and I think this is very resonable because this quantity if you apply and reapply daily it will last you 4-5 months.

What type of sunscreen it is?

Chemical sunscreen: diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate, dimethicone, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethylhexyl triazone sodium hyaluronate.

What type of skin should wear this?

They say all skin types, but I will recommend these to a combo-oily acne prone skin.

My thoughts:

Nivea Japan Sunscreen has a very watery gel texture ; if you’ve tried the InnisFree balancing lotion, it’s the same kind of somewhat moisturising, gelly-like consistency; it’s just viscous enough for you to apply on your face but still easy to apply.


It dries rapidly (since it contains alcohol), but it’s also marketed as a base for makeup, but it may be used all over the body.

It’s available in two sizes: 80g and 140g, and it’s frequently bundled with larger orders in a little little extra bottle.

Personally, I prefer the 80g due to the packaging and the lack of a pump top, but the 140g is clearly a better value (in terms of prices) The 140g is often a similar price to the 80g, as shown in the illustration, but it is not as convenient to travel with. As a result, I prefer the 80g, although you may obviously choose whatever one you like.

Why I would recommend this sunscreen in the end, especially to individuals who wear a lot of make-up and are concerned that traditional sunscreens may clog pores or look horrible on their skin tone: This is such an excellent base product.

Because of the alcohol base, it dries rapidly without being overly drying, and it doesn’t leave your skin glossy or tacky.

This means you may apply foundation as usual without fear of overdoing it or worrying about how the makeup will sit on top of the sunscreen.

Ingredients list:

Water, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethanol, PG, dimethicone, ethylhexyltriazone, hexyl diethylaminohydroxybenzoyl benzoate, sodium hyaluronate, phellodendron bark extract, quince seed extract, tocopherol acetate, (Acrylate / alkyl acrylate (C10-30)) ) Crosspolymer, Carbomer, Setes-10, Na Hydroxide, BHT, Methylparaben

A perfect 10/10 and a must-try for anyone who dislikes traditional sunscreens or wants to try something new!

A begginer’s guide to double cleansing

Do you understand what double cleansing is? Is adding another step to your skincare routine really worth it? And, for your skin type, how do you double cleanse?

What is double cleansing?

It’s as easy as it sounds! Double cleansing requires using two different cleansers to completely remove all traces of makeup, sunscreen, pollution, oil, dirt, and grime (which is difficult for just one cleanser to do well; it needs a little support from another cleanser). The first cleanser should be an oil-based makeup remover, followed by a water-based cleanser.

What is double cleansing for your skin?

In essence, twice washing guarantees that your skin is thoroughly cleansed and prepared for the next skincare products you’ll be applying later. It also aids in the revitalization of dull skin and the penetration of other skincare products. When you start double-cleansing, you’ll notice a significant change in the health of your skin. So let’s get started…

What should you use as a first cleanse?

The first element in your double washing process is to cleanse your skin of all oil-based pollutants, makeup, sunscreen, sebum, and even pollution. Finally, it aids in skin preparation for your second wash. Even if you didn’t use makeup during the day, this step is still necessary because your skin will most likely have sunscreen, sebum, and pollutants on it. Choose an oil-based cleanser for your initial cleanse (yes, even though your skin is oily), which will act like a magnet on your skin.

What are my favourites products to use for first cleanse:

double cleansing acne, double cleansing benefits, double cleansing before and after, double cleansing cleanser, double cleansing for oily skin, double cleansing every night

What should we use as a second cleanser?

Your second cleanser can really work its way into the skin now that your first cleanser has done the majority of the work. After using a makeup remover, your second wash helps to eliminate dust, filth, excess oil, and trace quantities of makeup from the skin (plus any leftover residue from your makeup remover).

My favourites for second cleanse are:

double cleansing acne, double cleansing benefits, double cleansing before and after, double cleansing cleanser, double cleansing for oily skin, double cleansing every night

Is it necessary to double cleanse in the morning?

Your skin will only contain the product from the night before, as well as some debris and oil that has accumulated overnight (the double cleanse the night before will have put your skin in a good place). So, in essence, morning double cleansing isn’t necessary at all.

What is the best way to double cleanse for your skin type?

All skin types can benefit from double cleaning if the correct solutions are used. If you have dry skin, try using gentle cleansers that don’t remove the skin’s natural oils. Ingredients like shea butter, jojoba, plant oils, honey, and squalene, as well as a neutral pH cleanser, will keep skin from drying out even more. Anti-inflammatory substances such as vitamin E and polyhydroxy acids can help combat blackheads on oily skin. A balancing cleanser with ceramides to maintain moisture and something lightweight to moisturize while managing oil will suit combination skin types. Finally, if you have sensitive skin, look for fragrance-free, moderate solutions.

If you have really sensitive skin, keep in mind that too much of a good thing might be harmful. If you have rosacea, for example, you will never double-cleanse; instead, you will use only an oil cleanser or light cleaning cream.

Bakuchiol vs Retinol 💗

Have you heard about the latest, greatest skincare ingredient? Bio-Retinol, the natural alternative to retinol, the vegan retinol, the plant based retinol, the natural retinol – all different names for one thing: Bakuchiol. ✨

What is backuchiol used for ?

Bakuchiol is found in the seeds and leafs of the Babchi plant, also known as Psoralea Corylifolia, so basically a plant extract. It is a natural occurring antioxidant and is called “herbal alternative to Botox” (no topical products are an alternative to something you inject, so let’s just forget that quickly) and “natural version of retinol”.

Bakuchiol has no structural resemblance to retinoid acid, but there are studies showing that it has similar effects on the skin,so let’s quickly look at the mechanisms of retinoids on your skin.

What is retinol used for?

Retinoic Acid works through specific receptors in the cell that trigger an increase in gene expression and increased production of collagen Typ I, III and IV as well as aquaporin 3 expression. Translated that means that your skins firmness and elasticity increase, while your wrinkles and fine lines decrease.

On top of that it speeds up cell turnover, which leads to younger looking, more even skin and less hyperpigmentation. 💦

How different are they?

Both Retinol and Retinaldehyde are precursors of Retinoic Acid that are slowly transformed into Retinoic Acid in the skin, which is why they act slower and are weaker in terms of effects and side effects. You can buy those as OTC products, while Retinoic Acid usually is prescription only.

All retinoids can lead to retinol dermatitis, a period of inflammation, dryness and flaking skin, typically occurring within the first four weeks of treatment. That can be prevented by using lower concentrations, slowly building up a tolerance or using the products less frequently than once a day. Some people though never tolerate retinoids. 💦

Do they both slow down the signs of aging?

Bakuchiol is a great retinol alternative for everyone that is sensitive to retinol side effects, but there is no need to replace the retinoids that have been working for you. And if you are on prescription strength, you won’t find the same effects in Bakuchiol products.
