NEOGEN Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++ Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Jolse.
Sunscreen is the main step in my skincare routine. I never skip it, even if I’m going to be indoors, and therefore go through products regularly and try lots of different formulas.
My husband and I finished two tubes of the original Neogen sunscreen (review here) and I was super excited to try their new Airy version. NEOGEN Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++ is available on Jolse and uses chemical filters for SPF50 PA+++ protection. A full list of ingredients is available at the end of the article.
This sunscreen features 20 plant extracts and promises lightweight, airy protection, reduction in sebum, and a silky finish with no grease.
How to use
Use as your last skincare step (before makeup)
Apply liberally over the face and neck
Don’t forget the areas around the eyes and ears
The texture is light and airy (as promised) with a very faint, barely noticeable scent. On my fair skin, it leaves no white cast. Since the filters are chemical, it’s probably safe to assume that deeper skin tones will also have no white cast. If you have any personal experience, please leave a comment about how that went.
The finish is quite natural, not too dewy but not overly matte either. It looks fine as is, but sometimes I still use a light dusting of a translucent powder on top because I enjoy a matte look. I haven’t had any pilling (including under a mask) or issues with makeup application. The sunscreen works beautifully with any products I’ve applied before or after.
I’m very impressed with this formula. It’s lighter than the original Neogen sunscreen, so perfect for my combination skin all year long. In the winter, I may add another moisturizer before sunscreen, but in the summer this should be sufficient.
I apply Neogen Day Light Airy Sunscreen all over the face, neck, ears, and around the eyes. Some chemical formulas may be irritating to the eye area, but I haven’t had that experience with this sunblock. It looks and feels great, doesn’t dry me out and also doesn’t make my oily t-zone shine like a greasy pancake. All good things. I’m not sure about long term reduction in sebum production, but it definitely keeps my skin comfortable while I use it.
As usual, I would love for the container to be bigger, but the size is pretty standard for sunscreens. Other than that, it’s pretty much perfect.
