I was pleased to see a face moisturizer with SPF in the BH box this past month...and from Honua. That is always a good thing. So, I'm trying it and liking it. I have dry skin, but it can be acne-prone here and there. I find that this moisturizer gives a nice drink of moisture, sits nicely under my cream foundation, and doesn't leave a white cast (though I am rather pale, so maybe it just blends in?). I can't yet give this 5 stars only because I haven't had a chance to spend much extended time outside to confirm the SPF effectiveness. For a grab and go, daily protectant, it feels like a really nice choice.
To be completely fair, I've not used this on it's own. I am mixing it with Australian Gold tinted sunscreen for the face. The AG is extremely drying, but when I add a half pump of the Malu sunscreen the mixture is so perfect. It's great under makeup, and any white cast goes away quickly, so it's also great for no-makeup days. I will definitely be repurchasing in the future specifically for this purpose.
Was so happy to get this SPF. I had just run out and was looking for something new to try. This leaves your skin feeling plump and dewy...I would sometimes use it at night because I love the feeling! I have a simple routine now in the a.m. of just cleanse, face mist, and malu. Love the scent.
I adore jasmine, and therefore to me, this product smells gorgeous. I enjoy getting little whiff of it from time to time during the day. I found it absorbs really well and I like that it's not tinted like some of the other SPF day creams I have.
This sunscreen is perfect for sensitive skin! I was very pleased to have received this product in my Beauty Heroes box and tried it out immediately. I have very sensitive skin with rosacea and redness and most sunscreens have at least one ingredient in them that my skin hates or reacts to. Not so with this sunscreen from Honua. The product glides on super smooth like a viscous serum/lotion combo and there is no visible white cast. Makes a perfect primer for bb cream or foundation. The smell is heavenly! Does not make my skin dry, oily, cause breakouts or clog pores. More importantly: does not make my bb cream or foundation slide off in the early afternoon. If you have sensitive skin (or even if you have non-reactive skin) give this sunscreen a try.
