While I can't speak truly to the sunscreen benefits, it's so soothing and lovely that I wear it in the winter under foundation powder with an SPF. It goes on a little bit heavy (I recommend giving it 10 minutes to absorb before applying makeup) but is wonderful. A real treat.
Shine - natural sun protection oil
with raspberry spf
Goal: Help protect skin from UV Rays/Soothe and heal sun damaged skin
Use: Before or After sun exposure - face and body
Skintype: All - especially beneficial for sun damaged skin
Fragrance: Ylang Ylang & Lavender
Why we love it: Lightweight and fast absorbing, perfect for wearing under makeup for extra sun protection
Benefits: We formulated our two sun protection oils with the philosophy that your skin should be conditioned(not conjested!) while sheilding it from harmful UV rays. Although Glow illuminizing oil does not carry an SPF rating, we've packed it with organic spf oils that naturally protect your skin from uv rays and also prevent damage, heal and regenerate skin cells. This oil is for day to day wear while you're on the go, not intended for use under prolonged exposure to sun. It's not a substitute for sunscreen, but rather a way to naturally boost your sun protection in cases when you might not normally wear any sun protection at all. Wear it with or without makeup on your face or body for a boost of sun protection. Apply after sun exposure to heal, soothe and regenerate damaged skin, sunburns or dry spots.
Directions: Apply 1-2 pumps/3-4 drops to face or body and blend throughly.
This product is not an SPF rated sunscreen. Prolonged exposure to sun without spf sunscreen is not recommended.
