Not For Me

Attractive bright blue stand up tube. Thick cream consistency, no scent. I like that it is spf30, broad spectrum, water resistant (though I have not tested the water resistant claim) and NZ made.

Have found this sits on my skin and doesn't actually soak in or blend in at all. Quite greasy looking. I tried using a flat top kabuki brush followed by hands. Product just seemed to move around my face.

I've used this the last couple of days but I really don't like the way it looks on me and I don't want to use it anymore.

a light moisturising sun cream

this sun cream look a little bit shiny when you applied it ,after padding it for 1 min it soaks in and looks good (not oily ), but i can feel its nourishing the skin ,after a few hours wearing ,my nose did get a little bit oily but thats normail for me cause i have very oily skin , for the coverage dont expect to be like a foundation , for the sun cream effect i think its perfect !

Ghoul to girl

I was so excited to see this pop up for review. We use a lot of their sunscreens for my family as there’s a bit of eczema and some sunscreen allergies in our family so usually when I find a brand we can use we go with that.

I tested this out at farmers and it was really nice so I made the leap and brought a tube. They do some samples sizes I think also so keep an eye out perhaps if you do need to try before you buy.

I had some luck using their sunscreens on my face and I had no reaction so was elated to be able to use this. Their whole idea is that you don’t need to use a lot of product - a pea sized amount for your face and ears etc.. and it’s definitely true especially with this. So it works out to be great value. My tube will last a loooooooong time. I think I might have got a few % off when I purchased from farmers but it wasn’t a huge amount.. but the tube amount 75ml will last you a long time and I definitely don’t need a pea sized amount for my face. So although it’s a pricier end of what I usually spend on a bb it actually isn’t as longevity makes it so worth your while.

I honestly didn’t hold much hope.... but I’m pleased to say I am so impressed! I usually use a garnier bb but the latest ones I have used have been a total let down - so I am always open to tying new bb creams especially if they have a Spf. This saves me even more money and time being a bb and a spf.

I like the tube and design it’s a fun look and I can’t mix it up with our other tubes of skinnies. I keep mine in the bathroom for everyday use as it’s great for the kindy run. I apply in the morning and it takes me from ghoul to girl. It’s such an odd consistency but in a good way - it’s very much like a gel so it spreads very easily. It isn’t thick or creamy definitely mousse/gel like. It leaves a nice layer that doesn’t actually feel like you have anything on your skin it feels like all you have is an easily absorbed sunscreen. It doesn’t have a thick appearance either - very good coverage for the amount you use but not cakey.

I do use a brush to apply - as it’s very good at coverage. They pack some major pigment into the tube for such a nice even cover. It’s really natural looking and blends well though. It’s not thick, but it does cover.

Given it’s a sunscreen and waterproof it’s great for holidays, beaches, pools, sweating it at the gym if you do... it definitely stays put. Which also means it can take a wee bit of cleansing to remove but I also expect this from any comparative products I have used in the past.. sunscreens alone or bb with spf, foundations etc. so no change there.

It’s a great product for making you look like you have flawless natural looking skin with an even tone when your wearing minimal makeup.

Tips: Saves you $ being a bb and spf.. it lasts ages so don’t be put off by the price - you honestly don’t use a lot. Trial at farmers if you need. Use a brush as it has good coverage so keeps your fingers clean.

Skinnies BB - medium

The point of Skinnies is that it has little to no water in it, so it lasts longer as a sunscreen than conventional ones. This results in the lotion being super concentrated. Seriously, a dab of this flesh coloured cream is more than enough to provide coverage for my whole face. Super moisturising, I would not recommend for oily skinned people, but it is ok for drier types. Will not come off in water, however reapply after swimming, although you will probs need a mirror for that. I think the clear option will be more suitable for me in the future.

Tips: Always wear sunscreen.
