Whoever invented spray on sunscreen is genius. It makes the application quicker, easier and much less messy.
I know this is a couple of days late. Product reviews are typically done on Fridays but I was a little inundated this past week and did’t get around to posting this til today.
Anyway, continuing the sunscreen series, today let’s take a look at Australian Gold Sheer Coverage SPF30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen.
Active Ingredients: Purpose Avobenzone (2.0% Homosalate (7.5%) Octisalate (5.0%) Octocrylene (2.75%) Oxybenzone (2.0%)
Inactive Ingredients: Acacia Senegal Flower/Stem Extract, Ascorbic Acid, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Diethylhexyl 2,6-Naphthalate, Fragrance, Glycerin, Polyester-8, Propylene Glycol, SD Alcohol 40-B, Tocopheryl Acetate, VA/Butyl Maleate/Isobornyl Acrylate Copolymer
*Available in a number of scents, the ingredients may vary slightly.
The ingredient list is not stellar but if you don’t mind that it’s not all natural, it offers some wonderful features:
- Water resistant for up to 80 minutes! (great for trips to the beach)
- Lovely exotic scent
- Oil free so it’s not greasy in the least
- Broad spectrum so it protects against UVA and UVB ray damage
- InvisiDry technology leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh like you didn’t even apply sunscreen
While I do love how easy spray on sunscreen is to apply, my only concern (albeit very slight), is I feel like I may be wasting some product. Spraying the sunscreen, you’re bound to miss spots on your skin so you over-compensate by spraying on extra. Some even gets sprayed into the air and never makes it onto your skin.
Since this sunscreen isn’t all that expensive compared to other brands (as low as $7), waste isn’t a huge concern. You just need to be careful to aim properly 🙂
Where to Buy
Australian Gold Sheer Coverage SPF30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen is available at local stores like Walmart and online retailers like Drugstore.com and Amazon.com.
