Finding a decent sunscreen to protect very sensitive, reactive skin is no easy task. Chemical UV filters (Avobenzone, Mexoryl-SX and –XL and Tinosorb-S and –M, etc.) tend to irritate already sensitive or sensitised skin. However, they’re also the most common ingredients in sun protection products so finding one with only physical filters (Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide) can be tricky.
Dermalogica uses the natural mineral sunscreen Titanium Dioxide in this product, offering broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Sensitive skins will love the UltraCalming Complex with oat extract, balm mint and cone flower to reduce sensitivity and irritation, and soothe reactive skin.
The texture is beautifully creamy, spreads easily and is light, yet nourishing. The colour is also lovely and blends perfectly onto my skin (which is fairly light) but also works well on darker tones. It’s a great added benefit of this product because it helps to neutralise and cover up the redness that goes hand in hand with sensitive skins – especially when exposed to the sun.
