The Sunscreen Series – Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Daily Face Shield SPF 40 Review

Whether we head to the beach, or expose ourselves to the sun, it is always a must to wear sunscreen. It is essentially one of the first steps to protect our skin. Some of the sunscreen might be sticky and thick, others might wear off quicker without much lasting power.

Laura Mercier has a sunscreen that can protect your face and last longer than most. You might not even notice yourself with sunscreen on after a while because of the smoothness of the formula.

Aside from the protection of UVA and UVB and the SPF 40, what else does this sunscreen offer? Laura Mercier’s sunscreen is actually quite special. Not only does it feel moisturizing, it is also oil free, scent free and Paraben free. The formula goes on sheer on the skin. Transparent, clear of extreme white residues after use, those are some of the features of this sunscreen.

What you want to do is after you apply moisturizer to the skin, shake this bottle up and down so that the formula becomes even. Afterwards, apply a small amount of this sunscreen and smooth it all over the face and neck. For higher sun protection, apply generously. Do remember to always reapply if needed.

This bottle comes in a grayish white plastic squeeze box. Removing the cap from twisting and turning reveals the nozzle. Gently squeeze or else an unnecessary amount will come out.

The sunscreen has a lotion like texture which is quite fluid. Originally, I had thought it would be a little bit sticky or even thicker because SPF 40 is some serious sun protection. This fluid like formula makes application not only easy, absorption is also easy. Though it does feel really moisturizing, it dires to a matte finish.

Laura Mercier sunscreen is like no other. It provides moisturization as well high SPF protection. The lightweight formula is very suitable for the hot season. The skin is still breathable and feels silky smooth upon application. Easy absorption, liquid like texture, and a fair amount of protection from the sun, what more can you ask for?
