SCINIC - Enjoy Super Active Airy Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Stylevana.
A couple of years ago, I tried some USA-made sunscreen sticks and was left very disappointed. They were a chalky, greasy, hard to spread mess. I didn’t buy one again. But this year I received one in a Stylevana box (unboxing video and swatch here) and decided to try it.
SCINIC Enjoy Super Active Airy Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ uses chemical filters and promises to protect from the sun without a white cast while controlling sebum production. It can even be used over makeup. The stick is available on Stylevana (use discount code INF10KBH until October 2021), YesStyle (use reward code KBHOBBIT for a discount), and Amazon.
How to use:
Apply to exposed areas at the end of your skincare routine
Can be used on wet skin (I personally haven’t tried that, other than over sweat)
This sun stick is totally clear when applied and has a mild, pleasant scent. It’s not sticky or greasy. It’s convenient for on-the-go reapplication and doesn’t seem to melt easily - I carried mine in very hot weather in my backpack and it didn’t melt.
This is AMAZING, I need 10 more immediately. Last weekend, my husband and I rented a cabin in a national park for two nights. It was the end of July in the Midwest, so hot and sunny. I am very fair and burn quickly. We used a base layer of make p:rem sunscreen on our faces (review here), then reapplied throughout the day using SCINIC. We used only SCINIC on our hands (and UPF sun sleeves for our arms - I like these ones).
We didn’t burn! Over the course of two days, we hiked a total of 17 miles (27 km) and took an hour-long horseback ride. The only place I burned was my scalp, because I completely forgot about a hat and didn’t put any sunscreen there. But everything else didn’t get even a slightest tan. While I’m a total sunscreen fanatic, my husband isn’t as diligent. Yet even he really liked the formula and didn’t rebel when I slathered it over his hands, back of the neck, etc. The elegant texture and no white cast really help with converting non-sunscreen users into believers.
The stick looks small, but that’s deceiving. We used it a lot, and I’ve used it before the trip as well, and it’s not out yet. I will definitely be getting more. It’s also amazing for putting on kids - fast and easy, no white cast, and the littles don’t fight me on it. Definitely give it a try.
