I am so excited about this sun screen…I know you’re wondering why something as ordinary as sunscreen could be cause for excitement for a forty something woman…. so here’s why. first of all we all know how important it is to protect our skin from the beautiful but damaging rays of the sun and that a broad spectrum spf of at least 30 is vital in the skin protection game, not just to protect us from possible skin cancer but also to support positive ageing.

The Buzz
Okay, so back to cover-fx: This SPF 30 face protector is clear, as in totally transparent! This high performance serum style sun block is a game changer for everyone, because at last there is an effective spf 30 facial sunblock that acts like a serum and won’t leave a greasy film which is a winner for all women who needed just a bit more encouragement to get serious about protecting their skin. I have to say that I am delighted with this product because as a black woman with combination skin who doesn’t wear much makeup, there is now something that doesn’t compromise my skin tone or leave me super shiny. Cover FX say “Ideal for all skin types—and all skin tones—Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 glides on completely clear, preventing any white residue or pinkish cast. The weightless, gel-like texture melts into skin seamlessly and creates a smooth, non-greasy finish perfect for applying makeup”.

Here’s why I love it
First of all as you’ve already gathered I ADORE the modern texture – this is a serum like texture so it just glides on smoothly and absorbs fast…there is no residue or stickiness. It’s just like you’ve added another serum to your skincare regime.

Secondly for those who wear foundation this works really well because it’s texture makes it easily compatible with most foundations., which is rare to find with sum protection for the face. You don’t have to wait long for it to settle, just put some into your palms and press it onto your face, pause and then you can apply your makeup.

Here’s what the brand say

“Skin care and sun care in one, Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 was formulated to bring out the skin’s highest potential. Squalane and natural sesame extract nourish, soften, and moisturize skin, while antioxidants from tomato extract help boost the skin’s ability to defend itself against free radicals, sun damage, pollution, and other environmental aggressors. With consistent daily use, skin looks brighter, healthier, and more youthfully resilient.”
