Hero Cosmetics Force Shield

My Review:

I did not have a great time with this. This is a mattifying mineral sunscreen, so unsurprisingly… I have a white cast with this. Because it’s mattifying, the formula dries down extremely quickly and not only do I have a cast, the zinc oxide doesn’t have time to spread evenly and it gets patchy and clumps up in different parts of my face. At the time of writing, the website for this product features a black model, which is incredibly misleading because this product would not work for her skin tone. This does have a green tint to it that didn’t show up on me, but if you’re much lighter than me and deal with redness, you might like that. This is only for people with much lighter skin tones who want a matte finish. Not great for me.
