Today I’ll be doing a quick review of the fragrance free, Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen which has an SPF of 50 and a UVA-PF 5 Boots Star rating which translates to a UVA-PF of 45+.
The sunscreen comes in packs of 2 for £7.50. Each tube has 100ml of content.
The texture is quite silky but takes time to blend into the skin. You’d be needing a minimum of 5 minutes to rub this sunscreen in and that’s 5 minutes per body part.
Just make sure to stick to the required amount of sunscreen per body part or you’ll end up with a visible white cast and excess product in skin creases.
With regards to ocular tolerance, it stings for like 5 – 10 mins then dissipates only to sting again 8-9 hours later. Very weird stuff I tell you.
As you may have noticed, it leaves a greasy finish so you’d be needing a mattifying powder or primer. It tends to ball up when I apply the Max Factor Miracle Prep Primer over it but works fine with the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer.
In summary this offers high UVA/UVB protection but requires a lot of time to massage well into the skin and this might not go down well with those with irritated actively peeling skin.
I hope this review was helpful. Please don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and give it a thumbs up. Do have a great week ahead.
