On the fence
I bought this product with the face wash to not only reduce my chemical load (thyroid) but to get something more natural since my face is super dry with all the alcohol in my previous product. It smells great, takes a few extra rubs to get the zinc to blend in and leaves my face a little pale but it felt great the first few days. After a few days I started getting burning and itching on my face, then it started peeling and I got an eczema outbreak on my cheeks and neck. I can’t tell if it’s the zinc or the combination of the ec wash and lotion together. I’m giving it a break for a few days and using sesame oil to right my eczema. After that I will try the sesame oil and then the lotion on top as I did think I was getting some benefits out of it. I’m just not sure if it’s a lasting product if it flares my eczema. To be continued.....
Best invisible zinc I've used
This is my second bottle, I've tried many zinc sunscreens and they have all been a bit greasy but not this one, it's very invisible on my fair skin when used alone and if I want a tint I just mix a little bit of foundation with it. Lovely, simple, natural product. LOVE IT!!
