Mary & May Cica Soothing Sun Cream

My Review:

This is very, very nice. A lightweight lotion that’s easy to spread on the skin. There is the TINIEST, most miniscule cast with this when it applies. It does pool and leave a little bit of cast around my eyes which is annoying, but that’s not a universal issue. It definitely goes on shiny but it dries down to a fairly natural finish without feeling greasy. Same base formula/manufacturer as the Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun, Round Lab Birch Juice Sunscreen, Benton UV Defense, Bellflower Avocado Moisture Sunscreen, and Thank You Farmer Sun Project Skin-Relief Sun Cream. They also go REALLY hard with the clean marketing, saying everything in the product is “safe,” citing the EWG, it’s a LOT. There’s a lot of centella asiatica and it’s various individual components in here, so hopefully this product will give some of those soothing benefits. This also stung my eyes which is VERY strange because this doesn’t have any filters that normally sting my eyes. There also seems to be a mineral version of this product with the same name, so make sure to check the ingredients. Other than the eye sting, which is totally personal, this is lovely.
