New Holy Grail Sunblock! #Antiaging#KBeauty
hi everyone welcome back to my channel it’s dawn and i’m a 51 year old woman here in the mature beauty community and my channel focuses on anti-aging beauty makeup lifestyle that sort of thing so if that’s what you’re interested in you have come to the right place i have a one product review for you today i typically don’t just review one product on my channel unless it is an amazing standout product and i’ve been trying this product for about six weeks now and i feel like that’s enough time to really give it a good review because all it is is a sunblock but it’s a very special one in my opinion and i feel like it might work very well for some of you not all of you and i’ll tell you who i think it will work best for but before i start i just want to talk about sunblock that is the most important anti-aging thing you can do in my opinion the sooner you start sunblock all over your body every single day the better even if it is like just a sunblock with an spf of 15 in the winter time you know just for your incidental in and out there’s just nothing more important for skin health and anti-aging next to that would be a vitamin a derivative but that’s a whole other topic so with the sunblock that i have been using for a very long time and i really enjoy on my face and on my neck and chest mainly is the australian gold mineral lotion non-greasy antioxidant rich spf 50.
this little guy this isn’t the product i’m reviewing for you today by the way this is just what i usually use some of you have said you’ve tried this that you didn’t like the matte finish or that was drying and i just want to say that if you do want to try the sunblock go to the australian gold website they have a much wider selection than you will find in store so if you don’t like this particular formula you might be able to find a formula for your particular skin’s needs so i still love this product and now i’m using it on my neck and on my chest i like that it’s tinted i like that it’s a thicker consistency because i find it very easy to spread around you know it’s not um liquidy and drippy so i really like it and i like that it gives my neck and my chest a little bit of a tint because i do self tan you would never know by looking at me um it’s the end of the summer and this is this is me with a tan so you can see why sunblock is so important to me the sunblock i’ve been trying i found because i was trying to find a sunblock that has really great ingredients for your skin period i wanted to find a sunblock that did all the things that i like in a sunblock not sting my eyes play well beneath all my makeup whatever makeup i’m choosing to wear that day i’m not leave a white cast and like i said have skin loving ingredients that are going to anti-age my skin or reverse some of my problems over time so the sunblock i’m going to be reviewing for you today is by the company etude house it’s k beauty or korean beauty and it’s the sun prize mild fresh airy spf 50 plus plus plus and this is what it looks like it retails for ten dollars for 1.
85 fluid ounces and i’m very impressed with the sunblock so let’s just get right into it and so i found this sun prize sunblock in a magazine article and i was like huh that’s really interesting they said it’s a k beauty so it’s a korean beauty product and the article was about k beauty and this came up so i started reading through the ingredients it has 20 plant-derived extracts in the sky and most of them from what i can tell are vitamins antioxidants anti-inflammatories and fatty acids so you need your i could go through the list of each ingredient but i feel like you might get bored if i do that so take a look at the ingredient list it’s very impressive um so when i looked at each ingredient each plant extract and looked to see what it did i found that it was either rich in vitamins and fatty acids it was a powerful antioxidant or it had amazing anti-inflammatory benefits and so all the ingredients seem to be really good and it’s a mineral sunblock zinc oxide and titanium dioxide and i really liked that as well so it’s a mineral not you know not a chemical sunblock um it did have five ingredients that were iffy for those of you with sensitive skin it had some um citrus oils in it it had orange oil lemon oil and eucalyptus oil and a couple others that didn’t really raise too many red flags but i wanted to mention that if you have sensitive skin and your skin does not respond well to those kinds of citrus oils this might not be for you but i feel like it has enough really great ingredients that kind of counteract those ingredients it does have a slight citrus fragrance which no doubt comes from the citrus oils but i don’t really notice it and it’s very very light i had to really pay attention to notice it but i wanted to make sure so i could tell you if it had a fragrance and it does but it is beautiful beneath my makeup it doesn’t leave a white cast it does come out a little bit liquidy so it’s not really runny but it’s not as thick as my australian gold and it is white but when you rub it in it doesn’t leave a white cast it just kind of turns clear if you have a darker skin tone and you go heavy-handed with it it might leave a little white cast i think but i think once you blend it in really well you won’t notice that now here’s the thing that the second thing i really love the first thing is all the skin loving ingredients the second thing is that it has sort of a matte finish and it makes all my foundations no matter what foundation i wear last longer and i’ve been using it like i said for a little over five weeks so i’ve been rotating my foundations over it just to see and at the end of the day i go up to my magnifying mirror and look underneath my eyes at my fine lines and wrinkles the sides of my nose and my chin where i tend to get that oily breakthrough and where my foundation might separate during the day and it helps that so my foundation looks fresher for a lot longer than it did before i started using this so that’s the second thing i really love about it the third thing i really love about it is that you get 1.
8 fluid ounces and i got this for 10 off of amazon you could go to the etude house website which is the brand that makes this the k beauty brand etude house and i think the highest i’ve seen it is thirteen dollars so i love the price sometimes i see these some blocks that are like forty five dollars or fifty dollars and all my research i just don’t think you need to pay that much for a sunblock you know who knows i could be wrong but i think the proof is in the pudding i never wear expensive sunblocks and i never get any sun and my skin isn’t showing signs of sun damage i have purchased one expensive sunblock in the past and it was from was it from obagi and i was using it here just to keep these freckles because no matter what i do by the end of the summer they always are a little bit darker and i have to do a little lightening protocol for my skin and it always works it’s just fine they don’t get darker over time but it’s just damage control from the summer um because those are areas of my skin that have more melanin from the freckling and so they create more melanin and they get darker but um even the obagi which i think i paid like fifty dollars for did not stop that from happening so i’ve tried an expensive sunblock and i didn’t see any better benefits from it so i stick with the affordable ones and i wanted to make sure i shared this with you because i think it is a beautiful primer it’s a beautiful sunblock it doesn’t sting my eyes doesn’t leave the white cast doesn’t make me break out at all makes my makeup look better and last longer and protects my skin from the sun so i think those are the main things we look for a sunblock if i have forgotten anything please ask me any questions down below in the question and comment section down below and if you’ve tried this please share your experience with it down in the comment section even if it wasn’t a great experience because i think that we benefit from reading those comments and finding out other people’s you know experiences with products and i want everyone to get the best review that they can get of the sunblock because i am singing its praises right now um so this is again by etude house and it is the sun prize mild airy finish spf 50 plus plus plus plus so anyway give it a try if you’re looking for a new sunblock that has great skin loving ingredients i think that you’ll be pleased um thank you for spending some time with me and i hope you have a blessed and beautiful day i’ll see you next time
