Product summary

We believe that "Garnier - Ambre Solaire Over Makeup Super UV Protection Mist SPF50" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredients listed. We love that it can protect from both UVA and UVB rays (not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

It also works as a moisturizer, so you do not have to use an additional hydrating product. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product has an anti-aging benefit.

Sunscreen filters

This sunscreen uses so-called "chemical", or organic UV filters (organic simply means that their molecules contain atoms of carbon). These filters typically give good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for sensitive skin. The UV filters in this sunscreen are: avobenzone 1.20% - 1.70%, mexoryl xl 0.35% - 0.80%, octisalate 1.90% - 2.90%, uvinul t 0.40% - 0.95%, homosalate 5.20% - 7.70% and octocrylene 3.40% - 5.10%.

Irritation risk
