The Face & Body Sunscreen That Made Me Cry

Ecooking Sunscreen SPF 30 and I got off to a rough start. It literally made me cry for 3 days in a row.

Turns out, my under-eye area can’t stand it. But the rest of my body digs it. A LOT. Here’s why:

Key Ingredients In Ecooking Sunscreen SPF 30

Chemical UV Filters For Broad Spectrum Sun Protection

Ecooking Sunscreen SPF 30 uses a bunch of chemical filters to provide broad spectrum protection sans the white cast:

Fun fact: After 20 minutes in the water, this sunscreen still has up to SPF 16. Good to know you’re not entirely unprotected, is it?

Aloe Vera Extract To Soothe Skin

Sunscreen goes a long way in protecting your skin from UV harm. But let’s face it: after a day in the sun, your skin’s gonna be a little dry and sensitive.

That’s where Aloe vera comes in. This plant has two superpower that come in handy at the beach (and everywhere else):

  • Hydrating: It draws moisture from the air into the skin, keeping it soft and supple for hours.
  • Soothing: It has anti-inflammatory properties that calm down irritations, reduce redness and soothe sunburns.

Aloe vera is the base of Ecooking Sunscreen Factor SPF 30, so there’s plenty of it here to do the job well.

Let’s Put It To The Test: Personal Use & Opinion

Ecooking Sunscreen SPF 30 has a lightweight texture that sinks in quickly on my dry body skin, drying down to a soft matte finish.

But I can’t use it on my face. *sighs* My t-zone is a little oilier, especially in the hotter summer months. All that extra heat seems to send my sebaceous glands into overdrive and pump out way more oil than usual.

The sunscreen works fine on my cheeks, but it doesn’t settle on my oilier t-zone. Worse, it has the tendency to travel into my eyes. Ouch! This stuff stings like crazy, it made me cry 3 days in a row.

For me, Ecooking Sunscreen SPF 30 is strictly a body sunscreen – and it does a good job at that. It’s not the most hydrating, but it leaves my skin soft and safe from sunburns.

In case you’re wondering, there’s no white cast. It’s white in colour, but it just melts into your skin. It doesn’t clog pores, either.

The best part? It’s waterproof, so you can splash around in the ocean or go for a swim without fear your sun protection will melt away. But do reapply it afterwards!

One more thing: the sunscreen has a lovely white floral texture. You know it, I prefer my skincare fragrance-free (scents have the potential to irritate sensitive skin), but I have to admit this one smells really nice. It hangs around for a while, too.

teribble. Octinoxate should not be formulated with avobenone, they are not compatible. It is is illegal, at least in Canada, to claim waterproof. I would not trust this brand with my skin. Never.
