You might have stopped at your local drugstore and been privy to the new L’Oreal Sublime Sun Collection. There are a variety of products available in the collection including a new Liquid Silk Sunshield.
I’m quite happy with my Asian brand SPF but I’m always curious to try out US ones to see if anything sticks out as great but sadly, they almost always fail.
Perhaps the new L’Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ might just change my mind?
I don’t like it.
For a day at the beach, sure, why not. For daily use? Absolutely, positively not.
L’Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ is waterproof suncare protection to protect skin against UVA as well as UVB rays. They call it a weightless lotion that absorbs easily and invisibly lays under makeup leaving skin silky soft.
It’s oil free, water resists, and non-pore clogging, or so they say.
This is a more traditional milky style SPF. It’s a looser formula that has a runny/watery consistency. It’s absolutely heinous on skin in my humble opinion. The formula doesn’t fully absorb and feels greasy at first application with a silky matte feel after dry down. Moral of the story? It makes itself known…so much for lightweight! I was terribly uncomfortable with it in place as I KNEW I had SPF on. I find this is an issue with most ALL SPF products in the US, they are the type of product that never fully absorb and just sit around on your face and hang out all damn day.
Foundation, makeup, etc…seemed to heavy when applied on top of this as well.
All in all, L’Oreal Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ might be great for a day at the beach as you won’t be wearing a ton of skincare and/or makeup products when sitting by the ocean or pool however for daily use I think this is an uncomfortable formula that just doesn’t wear well under makeup even if you’re going minimal.
