It is SPF 50/PA++++ and contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect your skin against UVA/UVB. By containing guaiazulene it also helps calm the skin. It has a natural tone-up effect after application with a semi-matte finish. Recommended for combination and oily skin.
How is this different from the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence?
The biggest difference is that the two protect the skin from UV rays in a totally different way. The Klairs Mid day Blue UV Shield is a physical sunscreen, while the Soft Airy UV Essence is a chemical sunscreen. Both are designed to carry a light and moisturizer like texture and to be soothing and gentle on the skin. However, they are formulated with different ingredients, leaving a different finish on the skin and that is why different skin types will be attracted to these two sunscreen from Klairs.
HOW TO USE?
Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and at the end of your skincare routine. Thoroughly apply to the skin.
Use as the last step of your morning skincare routine.
Apply a 1/4 of a teaspoon amount onto your face.
To minimize a white cast, apply in multiple layers of smaller amounts. Make sure to blend the sunscreen into the skin before applying the next layer.
The areas of the face that are most exposed to the sun are under the eyes, around the cheekbones, and on the bridge of the nose and forehead, so concentrate application to these areas.
Allow 20 mins for the sunscreen to settle on the skin before applying makeup.
Always seek shades and cover up when being outdoors during the hours of 11am-3pm when the sun is at its strongest to avoid sunburns.
