Review : I got this sunscreen when I desperately ran out of my current sunscreen. I got into the Guardian drugstore’s sunscreen section and my head was blank. I don’t put any specific brand of sunscreen I want because all I want is a sunscreen, a Batman *I love Batman* who can protect my skin from bad guys aka UVA and UVB.
First I will talk about the packaging. As usual *roll eyes*. This sunscreen comes out in orange color and blue for the cover which is quite eye-catching. When I purchased this sunscreen I realized there’s no ingredients list on the packaging but I think that’s okay since I can find the ingredients list of the sunscreen on the Guardian’s website then. But don’t worry. If you notice, there is a sticker in front of the packaging. Just open it to read the ingredients or you can refer to the website.
Then, this sunscreen texture is quite liquid. Not forget to mention it has a light yellow-ish color, but don’t worry, it isn’t leaving any of whitecast on your face or turn your face to yellow. When I applied on my skin, to be honest, my T-zone (forehead and nose) areas look more oily while my U-zone (cheeks and chin) areas are good to go. So I need to apply a little baby powder on my T-zone to cover up the oily looks. My face looks like I’m sweating although I’m not when there’s oily areas, so it makes me feel quite uncomfortable. I always apply compact or baby powder to cover up certain areas.
About the ingredients, this sunscreen is a hybrid sunscreen cause there’s physical and chemical UV protection ingredients in there. This sunscreen obviously is a broad spectrum sunscreen which protects against UVA and UVB damage.
To protect from UVA and UVB :

I love to use this sunscreen since my skin doesn’t show any irritation signs during using this sunscreen, there’s no itching, no redness, no hot burning feeling or no tiny bumps. If you want to buy or use an affordable and easy to get sunscreen, this might be your choice. But, please read the ingredients first to avoid any ingredients your skin sensitive to. If your skin is sensitive to perfume or fragrance and aloe vera, like you feel a burning sensation or there’s redness when you use it, I think this sunscreen is not suitable for you.
