Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Airy Sun Stick Review

isntree sunscreen stick review

Hey guys, Welcome to my blog. Today i am going to review my first ever stick sunscreen which is the Isntree sunscreen stick. I bought this for touch ups throughout the day since I always find reapplying a sunscreen to be a hassle because my sensitive skin does look blushed and feels warm each time I reapply.

Sun sticks are the easiest and time saving way to reapply sunscreens. I love the concept for its awesome practicality.

The first sunscreen I apply in the morning is either Isntree watery sun gel or the Beauty of Joseon sunscreen, Both are gentle and hydrating on my skin and also leaves zero white cast behind.

Swipe the sun stick 3 times to get complete sun protection and swipe once when reapplying.

DOES SUNSCREEN STICKS CAUSE ACNE?

Well, like any other sunscreens in the market, This certainly depends on the ingredients in it. Sunscreens sticks are preferable for acne prone skin since they are super light weight and in most cases do not cause or aggravate existing acne.

After swiping the sun stick, wipe it with a tissue to keep it clean to prevent any kind of microbial growth and thus, breakouts.

As of now, Isntree has yet to come out with their water resistant range of sunscreens.

MY EXPERIENCE

Skin Type – Normal Sensitive

This is my first stick sunscreen so I did not really know what to expect but, I was pleasantly surprised to find how convenient it is to reapply sunscreen with this. It saves a lot of time. I still prefer to use the brand’s gel sunscreen for my first application though.

This is a cute and compact tear shaped sunscreen stick that gives better coverage as its easier to reach the nook and crannies of your face. I swiped the sun stick across my face 3 times, it does glide easily and did not leave a greasy layer behind.

The sunscreen stick is so light weight that I could barely feel anything, My skin could still breath comfortably. I love the fact that it provides additional soothing, brightening and antiaging benefits along with complete sun protection.

The finish is velvety matte which is great but very rarely it does appear powdery on my skin especially on 3 swipes.

Another plus point of the Isntree sunscreen stick is that, it did not sting my eyes or make it watery.

IS THERE A WHITE CAST?

Isntree sunscreen stick will suit all skin tones as it leaves ZERO white cast behind. Happy Dance💃💃💃

BREAKOUTS | SKIN IRRITATION

Although the Isntree sunscreen stick contains OMC(Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate) as one of its UV filters, I did not experience any itchiness or burning sensation while using this sunscreen. The brand itself claims the product to be hypoallergic so you can certainly give this a try. Then again, if you are allergic to OMC, please do skip this sunscreen.

I did not get even a single pimple after using it. But, it is not fungal acne safe so be mindful of that and do not forget to double cleanse your skin.

NEGATIVES

When reapplying the sunscreen stick, it moves my makeup ever so slightly.

After the 3rd application, my skin feels a little bit tight and dry, I could also see the peeling areas from retinol which is otherwise not noticeable.
