Elemis Liquid Layer Sun Block SPF 30 - 40ml Reviews
You are supposed to apply this after using one of the other Elemis moisturisers to provide sun protection. However even using just this on its own I found it very greasy and would not rub in completely. It also left a noticeable white hue to my skin so will not be using again.
Very good product for high SPF protection of the face/neck layered under foundation, over moisturiser. Lightweight and non greasy like other sun creams I've used. Be careful to apply evenly and thoroughly - don't put on too thickly as can leave white patches and 'peel' away a little in some areas if putting on makeup straight away. Overall, now a staple product in my makeup bag for year round use to help protect my skin from premature ageing. Works well with pro-collagen cream but I've also layered it over other face creams with very good results.
I've been using this SPF since last summer and like it a lot. It does not effect makeup application and does not block the pores. I use it both with Elemis and Decleor moisturisers which have no SPF themselves.
Basically a good product and good value given the hgh SPF however a couple of things were disappointing,
It requires really vigarous shaking to ensure the product is well mixed otherwise application is very tricky and prone to white patches,
I also found that like other high SPF facial products it can cause increased sweating which I find so uncomfortable.
I think a brand like Elemis could certainly do better with this one however compared to other similar products it is slightly better and at a reasonable price.
