Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen Review

I have tried very few mineral sunscreens as they tend to leave a white cast and usually need an oil cleanser to wash off due to their heavy texture. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen that is light weight yet leaves very minimal white cast that can be blended easily. I was gifted the product by the brand and after thoroughly using it today let’s see my experience with it.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance

The sunscreen is available in airless pump packaging with an additional cap to protect the nozzle. I like the sleek packaging which is travel friendly as well as leak proof. The ingredients and other information is printed on outer carton and packaging is quite simple without any fancy sticker. The pump dispenser works good and the texture of the product is creamy. The product doesn’t have any fragrance as such neither does it smell of any clinical formulation. The consistency is soft and smooth that aids easy blending of the sunscreen.

My experience with Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen

The mineral sunscreen says that it is a moisturizing mineral sunscreen but it’s very light weight and simply vanishes into the skin. It gives a mattified look upon application, even with two fingers rule, it doesn’t feel heavy, greasy or oily. After sometime you may feel as if you haven’t applied anything to your face. After blending I didn’t notice a white cast on my skintone.

Being a mineral sunscreen, it may leave a white cast as soon as you apply it. However, this sunscreen gives minimal white cast as compared to other mineral sunscreens I have used. Moreover, blending of Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen is very easy as it is readily absorbed by the skin and is super quick without any pilling. It may leave a white cast on deeper skin tones however blending and waiting for sometime may help on reducing the white cast.

I prefer oil free products for my oily and acne prone skin and I was a little sceptical about using this one. However, even after using it consistently for many weeks it has caused any acne or clogged pores my skin acne prone skin. It does contain salicylic acid in the ingredients’ list and maybe that’s the reason it doesn’t clog the pores. You can very well use a vitamin C serum or any other serum before using the sunscreen. However, don’t use any hydrating or hyaluronic acid based serum because that may cause sweating.

The sunscreen is pregnancy and kids’ friendly and I am planning to use this for my kid as an outdoor sunscreen. I also like using it on my hands and feet since it is moisturizing in nature. The sunscreen is also easy to wash and doesn’t require oil cleanser to wash off. It is easily washed off by a foaming cleanser.

On the other hand, this sunscreen sweats immediately after application in peak summers if you aren’t in AC or under a fan. Now that monsoons have already set, I didn’t notice any sweating upon immediate application. So it may sweat or not depending on the place where you stay. Also, if you indulge in physical activity after applying this sunscreen, it sweats a lot and one cannot help but wipe off the sweat.

Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen Review

Juicy Chemistry Moisturising Mineral Sunscreen is a good option for people who want to use mineral sunscreens in their skincare routine. The mattifiying effect, minimal white cast, easy blending, pregnancy nursing and kids’ friendliness and even easier easy reapplication makes it a good mineral sunscreen. The product does sweat in summers and if indulged in physical activity after applying it. However, this would be a good option for monsoons and winters in my opinion. Overall, Juicy Chemistry Mineral Sunscreen is a good option for those looking for organic as well as mineral sunscreen.
