Product summary

We assess that "Garnier - Ambre Solaire UV Water Clear Sun Cream SPF30 Mist" can provide reliable sun protection based on the ingredient list. 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 contains good moisturizing ingredients and can double as a hydrating day cream. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product has an anti-aging benefit.

This is a so-called "chemical" sunscreen. It means that it uses organic UV filters.
