The PA rating system measures the level of protection from UVA rays, which are known to cause pigment darkening in the skin. It measures the amount of time a product would protect your skin from darkening.
The following shows how much protection each PA score provides compared to unprotected skin. If your unprotected skin normally darkens/pigments after 5 min of UVA exposure:
|PA Rating||Level of Protection||# of minutes protected before experiencing skin darkening/pigmentation|
|PA+||2-4 times||10-20 minutes|
|PA++||4-8 times||20-40 minutes|
|PA+++||8-16 times||40-80 minutes|
|PA++++||>16 times||>80 minutes|
Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 has a PA+++ rating.
I love to wear this as an alternative to foundation on 'makeup-free' days. It gives just enough warmth to my light skin to make me look more polished but still natural. I have a favourite 'chemical' sunscreen from another brand that I like to slather on first (I have to admit, I am not fully onboard with mineral sunscreen yet, as my oily skin finds them comparatively heavy). Then I buff on a light layer of Face Shield Matte with my foundation brush, for that extra layer of protection and warmth. It's more sheer than a foundation but works like a skin tint, giving a satin-matte finish on my oily skin. (It gets shinier during the day on me, but everything does on my skin, and a quick blot with a single ply of tissue sorts that out!) I know I'm unlikely to be getting the full SPF value this way, but I feel my skin is protected by using it as a light layer in conjunction with my other (SPF 50) product. I love the ingredients of course and I find with all the Colorescience Face Shield sunscreens I've tried (I also use the classic and the glow), I get skincare benefits: my skin feels extra soft and smooth when I cleanse in the evening - maybe because of the zinc and/or niacinamide content? It's a versatile, honestly-priced quality product and a useful addition to my sunscreen wardrobe.
The formula of this is amazing….doesn’t feel like you’re wearing an SPF and you probably don’t need anything else on your skin as it gives you a nice glow. Unfortunately it’s just too dark for my NC20 in MAC skin.
I absolutely love this product. I use classic shade and it is a perfect match to my skin tone. It is perfect, natural look coverage. I love the texture and It doesn’t dry out my skin. It sone of my ultimate must-haves everyday!
I purchased 3 in the January sale!. Not my first buy, since the launch it's all I've ever used, I can see why it wouldn't suit some people's skintone, however for my brown skintone it works well with little to no white cast! Thanks to colorescience I can wear a decent mineral spf50 without looking like a ghost
This product was recommended to me, I had not heard of it before. I find the product is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. I like the fact that it is tinted especially for the days that you don't want to wear any make up.
