The most important thing you should want for your face is to keep it protected from the sun no matter the season. Yes, skin protection is even more important during summer, but it’s equally important to use sunscreen during other seasons as well. So praises to Madara for creating a sunscreen stick that easily fits in your pocket.
Madara Pro-Active Sunscreen Stick* (18g for $24-£18) has a high protection of SPF50. Moreover, it has both UVA and UVB mineral protection. The sunscreen stick has a gentle powdery scent, which I find absolutely lovely. The texture is soft, almost buttery, and results in a quick and fuss-free application. The formula itself feels hydrating but is pretty quick-drying.
There’s one major personal observation about this Sunscreen stick: you must remove it thoroughly every evening. I know we have to remove all makeup thoroughly; however, with this I noticed that I have to take some extra steps (especially after hot days). Otherwise, it tends to break out my t-zone after a few days of daily wear. So if your skin has a tendency for breakouts, keep my advice in mind.
The color Nude is a neutral sheer shade, suitable for all skin tones. It’s almost invisible on light skin, leaving just glow and smoothness behind. It might look like you are wearing a sheer bb cream or something similar. The teardrop shape of the sunscreen stick allows for an easy and more precise application. However, I still needed a flat kabuki brush to even out some of it on and around the nose. Although, I am sure this could easily be done with warm fingers as well if needed.
Overall, I absolutely love the idea of this protective and convenient sunscreen. Its texture is amazing; especially, if you like your skin more radiant and even without loading your face with lots of makeup.
