WOW Skin Science Sunscreen Matte Finish – SPF 55 PA+++ Review
Sunscreen is one skin care product that I can never skip, even if I don’t apply any skin care product, even if I am practicing skin fasting then also I ALWAYS ALWAYS apply a sunscreen because sun damage is real. You should never skip sunscreen in your skin care routine because the harmful Uv rays can wreck havoc on your skin. I was thoroughly enjoying using the Regaliz Truderma Sunscreen Gel but then there was a total lockdown and I ran out of my favourite sunscreen. I searched my skin care stash and found out the WOW Skin Science Sunscreen SPF 55 that had been lying around for a few months but as I was fully satisfied with the results so I didn’t use it back then. I have been using the Wow Sunscreen for the past one month so I thought of sharing the full detailed review of this sunscreen here on my blog.

My Experience with the WOW Skin Science Sunscreen SPF 55 PA+++:
The WOW Skin Science Sunscreen SPF 55 comes in the classic brown plastic pump dispenser bottle. The bottle is very sleek so it is very travel friendly as you can easily slip it into your handbag and carry it around with you. The pump dispenser comes in very handy as it helps you to dispense the right amount of product. The product is white in colour and has a very light consistency. It is very lightweight in texture and sinks into the skin within a few seconds of application. The first time I sniffed this sunscreen I almost hated it because it had a very strong fragrance but surprisingly the smell vanishes the moment you apply it on your face. I have a sensitive nose so any product with a strong fragrance is a total no for me but this sunscreen inspite of having a strong fragrance does not irritate my eyes or my over sensitive nose.
I take around a big dollop of the sunscreen and apply it all over my face and on my neck. The sunscreen spreads evenly and does not leave a white cast and does not make my face sweat. This is a broad spectrum sunscreen and has a SPF of 55 which is great for the summers. A broad spectrum sunscreen provides protection against both UVA & UVB rays and with an SPF of 55 this is a really effective one.
It is advisable to re-apply a sunscreen after every 2 hours but I rarely re-apply my sunscreen, if I am out in a beach location I do apply it two times in a day but re-appying after every two hours is not my cup of tea. I just dab a good amount on my face in the morning and I am good to go. I am a dry skin type and this sunscreen gives a very healthy sheen to my face, it is not at all oily and does not feel heavy on the skin so it is perfect for girls with oily skin too. It has raspberry extract, carrot seed extract and avocado oil all of which are considered to be natural sun blockers and offer some protection to the skin against sun damage. It is also water resistant so it is also good for hot, humid and rainy weather.
All in all I pretty much like this sunscreen, it might not be the best one that I have tried out but it is certainly a decent one. You can definitely give it a try, it is definitely worth trying once. As a blogger we need to try out different products and different formulations and we rarely repurchase any product until and unless we love it to bits, this one is definitely not on my repurchase list but if you want to try a good quality sunscreen you can go ahead with this one. It will definitely not disappoint you.
