Daylong Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++

Recently, I've been trying out Daylong SPF50+ PA++++ Sunscreen, an oil-free sunscreen for sensitive, oily or sun allergic skin.





About Daylong :: 

Daylong is the sister brand of Cetaphil (the expert dermatological company) where they provide a range of sun protection products suited for everyday use for diverse skin types and conditions. Daylong provides optimal quality and exceptional protection for even the most sensitive of skins.





Daylong Sunscreen with SPF 50+ contains effective broad spectrum UVB and UVA filters to protect against UVB, UVA & IR. Specifically suited for very sensitive, oily or sun allergic skin.

A water resistant sunscreen that is free from parabens and fragrance. It is Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and Dermatologically tested.




    Note ::
    Sun exposure helps skin naturally produce vital Vitamin D but there are risks. 
    Prolonged sun exposure can lead to skin conditions like pigmentation and premature skin aging and also skin cancer,which is ranked 6th and 7th most frequent cancer affecting men and women respectively in Singapore between 2010 - 2014 (as reported by the The Singapore Cancer Registry)



    Ingredients list of the Daylong Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++

    It comes in a squeeze tube - I like it because it's easy to open and bring around







    Application
    Approx. 20 minutes before sun exposure, apply generously and allow to absorb into the skin.
    Avoid contact with eyes.
    Apply several times in order to maintain sun protection, especially after swimming, drying off and sweating.
    Applying small amounts considerably reduces the protection.
    Avoid the intensive midday sun.
    Excessive sun exposure is hazardous.
    Even sunscreen with a high SPF does not provide full protection against UV rays.
    Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product.
    Do not expose babies and toddlers to direct sunlight.
    Sunscreen products can cause permanent discoloration to textiles and other materials

    (Please excuse my flaws...)


    After I have spread the gel out and allowed my skin to absorb it, my skin doesn't look oily or too shiny. It does have a light dewy sheen.


    The consistency of the sunscreen feels like a light moisturizing (watery) cream and it doesn't look or feel like a gel. It is very moist and easy to spread all over the skin without pulling the skin. Once the sunscreen is absorbed, my skin doesn't feel sticky nor oily. It does have a slight tacky finishing which feels quite similar to a makeup primer texture (feels like a primer that will make your foundation last a little longer). I like that this product does help to enhance the longevity of my foundation.
    I noticed that when I had applied a thick layer at once, the skin does feel a little oily (but it's more of a moisturizing cream type of "oiliness"). So I go easy on the sunscreen and apply bit by bit (slowly covering the whole face). The best part is that this sun screen does not leave a white cast nor flaky residue.
    This is a good water resistant sun screen. I applied a good amount on my hands/arms and put them under the running water. I can see water droplets on my skin because the water doesn't rinse off the sun screen. 

    (Note: I have dry combination skin, my skin is pretty sensitive and it gets irritated
    easily)
    The Daylong Sunscreen doesn't cause any skin irritation nor make my skin itchy during the whole week of trying out this product.
    I have tested this sunscreen by wearing it to Universal Studios Sentosa twice on two different occasions, to see how well it performs. I get sunburns easily and this product does help to prevent my skin from getting burned (like redness on the high point of my cheeks). When I take off my makeup at the end of the day, there was no irritation and my skin doesn't look tan at all (as if I have never spent hours walking around under the sun)!
    I find that this sunscreen is a little too light for my skin type and personally prefer creams/ lotions which are slightly heavier. It would be ideal for normal/combination to oily skin. I also like that this is a fragrance-free product.
