Top Sunscreen Pick: Leader's Clinic Sensitive Sun Cream SPF 50+/PA+++ Review & Giveaway!

Hey Everyone!

Sunscreen should be part of your everyday routine. Applied before your make-up and moisturiser, sunscreens should be in direct contact with the skin. Why? It prevents you from all sorts of ailments including pre-mature aging and even skin cancer. For a more indepth overview of all you need to know about sunscreen, do click on my earlier post right here, click away:

Back to Basics: All you need to know about Face Sunscreens & Sunscreen Tips

Getting back to the review, the Leader’s Clinic Senstive Sun Cream is one of my favourites. I’m on my second bottle and I have’t found a sunscreen yet that has treated me as well as this one has. This was given to me by Leader’s Clinic and I was not compensated for this review. Honesty is a given. Rarely am I willingly to go out and re-purchase a product that has been sponsored to me before. The Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Makeup was the only one thus far and it looks like I can’t do without this one either. Let’s get on shall we?

About the Sensitive Sun-Cream:
So what’s so special about this one? Leaders Clinic claims that this baby is a mild sunscreen, waterproof, is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin and offers the quality of a make-up base. It also protects from UVA and UVB rays with a PA rating of PA+++ which is super impressive because that means, from my sunscreen post, you would learn that it offers the highest protection from UVB rays, the rays that cause invisible damage that can consequently lead to Melanoma and skin cancer. Opuntia Extract (I’ve reaserched and this stuff is sourced from the prickly pear cactus) soothes irritated skin caused by sun damage. Sounds good but does it live up to it’s name, we’ll see.

What Do I Think?
First of all, I absolutely love how this product is tinted. I find that too many sunscreens often give me an unwanted white over-cast but the fact that this is tinted helps me to not only protect my skin from the sun, it helps hide unwanted red spots. It’s very similiar to a tinted moisturiser and don’t be misguided by the fact that the cream says well, cream. I would say that it’s in the middle of a cream and lotion. It’s not obviously runny, but it’s light enough that it’s able to be easily applied all over the face. It’s great for everday for that reason because you don’t even feel the stuff after you’ve applied it.

Gosh I look like I need sleep. Well it’s 1:30 AM right now, so I probably look like that right now but whatever. This is me without makeup on at about 8 AM in the morning before a lecture. It’s make-up time and the first thing I apply is the Leader’s Clinic Sensitive Sun Cream. I do this before any makeup application so the sunscreen comes in direct contact with my skin as all sunscreens should. The reason is because for the sunscreen to work, it must be absorbed into the skin. I usually leave this on for about 10 minutes. I might go ahead and pack my bag for class and then I continue with my make-up.

When the product is not yet blended, you can see that it looks kind of white. It’s very similar to BB cream consistency if you’re familiar. I don’t think you should use it as a BB cream unless you’re into basically little to zero coverage but that’s cool too. Once the product is blended though, you don’t even notice it’s there. Use clean fingers to apply it all over your face. With all sunscreens, don’t forget to emphasize protruding features like the bridge of your nose or the tips of your ears believe it or not. Perhaps even your cupids bow!

And there we have it. Obviously some blemishes are still visible but you can see it looks smoother slightly but the key reason why I like this stuff is because it doesn’t have that white over-cast. Once you’ve applied the sunscreen, go ahead with your foundation. I love this product because it’s light, easy to apply, offers a bit of coverage and doesn’t give me the white over-cast. It’s not super oily either like some sunscreens are nor is it staticly matte like the Physiogel sunscreen. It’s basically I think the perfect balance.

But, How Can This Product Improve?
Besides being a great addition to your make-up routine, I’m looking at the ingredients list and there’s a few things that might not be too Dermatologist savvy like dimethicone, Methylparaben and Propylparaben that may cause skin irriation to those who aren’t used to it. But you know what, most make-up items have that anyway so I really wouldn’t be complaining. The high SPF 50 may also be a little overboard. Higher SPFs don’t always mean better, remember. Too high an SPF is sometimes unecessary when an SPF of 15 – 30 will do. I really am trying to find something to not like in this product though and I’m pretty much lost for words. I’m for sure re-purchasing when I run out. rating: 5/5 ( and I know, I rarely give 5s).
Where Can I get this Product?

    1. My favourite is Loreal UV Perfect Matte 12H longlasting UVA/UVB Protector SPF 30/PA+++.
    It blends very well and is not sticky at all, unlike some others in the market. The thing I liked is the light mattifying finish is the ultra fine and the smoothness when applying as well as not leaving white streaks on your face.

    1.I don’t have a favourite one. I’ve been using Ego Sunsense Matte, a tinted oil-free cream base sunscreen (middle between gel and cream), which I wouldn’t recommend for very oily skin. I’m still looking for one that will keep my T-Zone matte for at least 5 hours. IWhich one would be better for those with oily skin: Physiogel or Leader’s Clinic?

    thankyou <3

  • Pollya

    1) Heliocare advanced SPF 50 gel broad spectrum sunscreen because it’s the lightest sunscreen I’ve tried from among like 10 different brands — it is indeed gel like in texture (like what it says on the tube) so I can apply quite generously and it doesn’t clog up my oily skin. But it’s expensive so I’m always on the lookout for more reasonably-priced brands that won’t clog pores!
