If you're looking for a mineral UV filter that applies seamlessly, this is it! Zinc oxide is the safest, most effective sunscreen ingredient. It is broad spectrum, it protects from UVA, UVB rays. Unlike typical zinc oxide sunscreen, the texture is surprisingly not thick at all. It has a thin fluid consistency, spreads easily, blends smoothly and most importantly sinks into skin beautifully. The result is satin finish, demi-matte skin, no strong glow/dewiness. No heavy or greasy feeling. I prefer to apply it in thin layers, adding more after it sinks in, that way the white cast is not so apparent (i have a fair-light complexion). If you slather a big blob, it takes longer to spread and will result in more white cast. However, white cast will dissipate after few minutes. This mineral sunscreen doubles as makeup primer as well since zinc oxide keeps oil under control. I recommend this sunscreen for normal to oily skin due to the oil control property and less shiny finish. Slight rosemary oil can be detected but not overpowering. In the photo, I'm comparing this Benton mineral sun cream with other sunscreens purchased from iHerb. Benton sun cream is as fluid & as spreadable as the A'pieu water sun cream (purple tube). I apply them interchangeably, depending on my skin condition. When my skin is sensitive or irritated, Benton is perfect since it has mineral filter. I also enjoy the application of the purple A'pieu water sun cream (it contains chemical filters). Overall, Benton Mineral Sun Cream will be a staple in my sunscreen wardrobe 👍
Herbal scent and smells chemical and metallic after application
A slight white cast, which is usual for a sunscreen with a mineral composition. Mix well with the rest of my skin care products
The packaging is elegant and easy to use
Overall feels gentle to the skin and nice shiny touch
This just might be my favorite Korean sunscreen ever. It’s perfect for my oily skin – it’s very lightweight, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t make the face look greasy. In the past, I was scared of using a mineral sunscreen because I thought it would be difficult to apply and would leave a white cast. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily it spreads and that it doesn’t have a white cast at all. Although this sunscreen doesn’t have any artificial fragrance, it contains rosemary oil which gives it a nice fresh herbal scent.
Love this sunblock! It's got pleasant texture, easy to apply. It absorbs just like a moisturizer, so the face doesn't feel greasy like with many other sunscreens. It also doesn't clog pores which a huge plus. It does, however, have a strong rosemary scent, so you should mind it.
This is one of the best quality, mineral-based sunscreens that I have ever used. It is very creamy, easy to apply, doesn’t pill or feel thick or gritty. It has a very mild scent that smells akin to tea tree oil or mild menthol, which dissipates quickly. I like that it doesn’t look greasy or leave a white cast on fair skin.
This is my first time using a Benton product. I found it really successful with the mineral UV filter combination. Its texture is light. When you spread it on the skin, it forms a white coated layer, but is quickly absorbed. It did not make my skin oily or cause acne related issues, although I have oily face.. The scent is also very light. It smells a little herbal, but not bothersome. Its quality is good. I will definetly buy again.
one of the best SPF cream I have tried. it is effective against both UVA and UVB, it has no smell, its not oily, it dries down quickly, the only minus it has is it leaves a slight white cast, not the worst , but I wouldn't recommend it for dark skin tones. if I helped you, please give it a like
A bit about myself: age- 32, type of skin- dry/normal, sensitive, easily gets burned, with freckles and hyperpigmentation.
I use 50+ sunblock everyday. This purchase was a real trial as my Tone-up sunblock has finished and the one that I ordered was sold out and didn't get in my parcel. BUT, I am super satisfied! The package in nice and stylish. The cream itself has a pleasant rosemary scent. I like how it smells (though if you don't like herb smells, better look for another Sunblock). In a few minutes after applying the smell vanishes. The cream is thick and white, but easily spread all over the face and neck. It doesn't leave sticky or oily cover. I do not feel it on my face. The skin looks hydrated and not oily or extra glossy. I'd say it has a satin finish (I attach a pic). I do not put on BB or CC cream, but the powder on top lays evenly and not visible. When I spend a day outside (camping or at the lake), I increase the frequency of applying the cream and put on additional layer every 2-4 hours (depending on the time spent swimming etc.). I challenged this Sunblock this weekend for 2 days on the river bank and my hyperpigmentation on the upper lip didn't become brown. I also didn't get sunburnt.
I am very picky with sun blocks but like this lots! I recommend it!
