Pestlo Safe Recipe Sun Essence

My Review:

This is mineral sunscreen with a cast that’s mostly unnoticeable… except for around my hairline. There’s a definite rosemary scent to this from the rosemary leaf oil, as well as a medley of amino acids. This goes on slightly dewy but dries down to a slightly matte finish. A good mineral sunscreen, but the hairline cast ruins it for me. Definitely fine if you have a lighter skin tone. There’s also some “EWG clean/green” marketing on this product on the brand’s website, which is never fun to see.
