Skin Care Review: Philosophy shelter spf 15

by Donna, CT USA


15 spf sun protection without white residue or greasy feeling

Would like it even more in 30 spf, and in a larger size. It only comes in 2 oz.

Having fair skin, I was looking for a sunscreen to supplement my moisturizer(s) that didn't have any sun protection already in them. I must have checked out a dozen or so different brands (same store, same day!) until I was able to find one that didn't have either zinc oxide in it that leaves a whitish tinge or one that left a greasy look or feel on my face. Finally, I found philosophy's shelter. The 15 spf lotion goes on smoothly and is quickly absorbed without leaving any shine or residue. Although is has that "sunscreen" smell, it's light and it didn't bother me at all.

I also have very sensitive skin as well as rosacea, and it did not irritate my skin in any way. I just applied it over my moisturizer and was all set to go outside.

Use "shelter" if your moisturizer doesn't already have sunscreen in it.
