O HUI Day Shield Multi Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Jolse.
I love sunscreen sticks - they are a quick, convenient, mess-free way to reapply SPF. They are usually not my only means of getting sun protection, but are definitely my preferred method for reapplication, especially if I’m walking / hiking and don’t want to get a more traditional sun cream all over my hands.
O HUI Day Shield Multi Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ is advertised as a convenient way to shield yourself from the sun for all skin types. In addition to chemical UV filters, it also contains a complex of vitamins and oils to nourish the skin. It’s available on Jolse and in their eBay shop.
How to use
Apply to the areas exposed to the sun
Reapply during prolonged sun exposure
The stick is a beautiful, translucent amber color and smells heavenly (what I imagine expensive perfumes might smell like). It’s very easy to apply but leaves a balm-like sheen on the skin. It’s not particularly noticeable to the eye, but very much there to the touch, even half an hour after application.
O HUI sun stick is a lot larger and heavier than any of the other brands I’ve tried. The case is mostly plastic, but the outside of the cap seems to be metal, which contributes to the weight. It’s not as portable as I would have liked in a sun stick.
I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry/normal everything else. When it comes to sunscreen, I value the finish above all else (well, not above the actual sun protection). I can deal with some white cast, but I absolutely cannot stand anything that’s sticky or greasy to the touch.
O HUI Day Shield Multi Sun Stick isn’t necessarily greasy or sticky, but it’s “balmy” in a way that’s not pleasant for me. The feeling is similar to applying a thin layer of Vaseline to the face, also known as slugging, which I can tolerate at night but don’t want during the day. And it would be ok if that feeling went away after a while, but it doesn’t - even an hour after application my fingers get shiny and slide around if I touch my face. The product never sinks into my skin. I wonder if that’s from all the oils in the ingredients. I can even see tiny droplets of the oil form on the surface of this stick between uses.
The only thing I like about this product is the scent. Oh, and it’s absolutely clear - no white cast. Perhaps someone with very dry skin would find this perfect, but for me it’s pretty much unusable. I’m still not totally sure what I will do with it - I will probably use it up on my face and neck while gardening (because I usually shower right after). Very unfortunate for such an expensive product.
