As summer soon approaches, I've been looking to step up my sun protection. Since Amarté skincare products like their Daily Wonder Cleansing Foam and Natural Finish BB cream have worked well for me, I was curious to try their new Ultra Veil Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50.
About the Brand: The word Amarté means "to love you" and the motto of the brand is "Love yourself. Love your skin." which is at the forefront of the products they create. Amarté marries the philosophy and heritage of Korean skincare with American dermatology and innovation to deliver a premiere luxury skincare line which is dermatologist tested and approved.
Key Ingredients: Ultra Veil offers broad spectrum protection through a unique formulation that blends physical (titanium dioxide & zinc oxide) with chemical (octyl methoxylcinnamate & octyl salicylate) sunscreen agents to create a physical aesthetic veil to protect skin exposed to sunlight. It also adds gingko biloba nut extract and five other botanical extracts to provide conditioning antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that promote positive collagen and elastin balance along with caviar to nourish and purified elemental sulfur to calm and heal irritation, decrease sebum production and brighten skin.
Packaging: A lightweight buttery yellow plastic bottle with a twist on cap that feels secure enough that you wouldn't worry about tossing it in your bag. The product is dispensed through a nozzle tip which makes it easier to control and minimizes mess.
Price: $45 for 2.4 fl. oz. / 70 ml.
My Impressions: The texture of this product is thin and almost watery which I didn't really mind since that probably contributes to it's weightless feel. It has a slight cooling sensation when first applied and absorbs easily with a non-drying semi-matte finish. It doesn't feel sticky or like a coating on my skin and appears imperceptible once blended under my BB cream. The subtle botanical scent is light and fades away fairly quickly. I've worn it on my face and neck and haven't experienced any irritation or reactive issues on my skin which can be sensitive. I definitely like that this sunscreen offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50 protection along with a multitude of conditioning skincare benefits. I should mention that it is water resistant for up to 40 minutes. This product is also a winner for it's ultra lightweight non-greasy finish and ability to "play well" with makeup.
Amarté Ultra Veil is available through Dermstore.com and the brand's website.
