Consonant’s “The Perfect Sunscreen” Review

wpid-img_20150429_183948.jpgFinally! A mineral facial sunscreen with an elegant texture: Consonant’s The Perfect Sunscreen.

I tend to use heavier textured sunscreens but because I’m going to be working full-time (indoors) I figure a lighter texture will suffice. For days when I’m out and about more I’ll just  apply a tad more and bust out a hat.

I had been given a sample of The Perfect Sunscreen a while ago but it wasn’t until recently that I decided to take the plunge and purchase it. It doesn’t only have a good texture for a mineral sunscreen but for a sunscreen in general. Believe it or not, I actually don’t mind when mineral-based sunscreens leave a bit of a white cast because it makes a good base for my makeup-I’m fair. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to look like a mime but if the sunscreen is somewhat noticable it’s still workable with makeup-I always wear makeup. The Perfect Sunscreen is tinted with mica so when it is rubbed in it is pretty much neutral coloured.

wpid-img_20150429_192315.jpgPROS:

  • Amazing Texture
  • Sufficient percentage of active ingredients
  • Unscented
  • All natural
  • A slight tint (mica) so it doesn’t leave a white cast (although it may on quite dark complexions)
  • Canadian Brand
  • Works well on its on or under makeup
  • Doesn’t pill
  • EWG Rating of 1

CONS:

  • It’s fairly pricey for a sunscreen $45.00/2oz
  • I could do without the mica tint but am well aware that the white cast just isn’t doable for all
  • It may be too thick for those who don’t like the feeling of having sunscreen on
  • Monitoring when product is running out is tricky because of the opaque pump bottle
