Do you use non nano minerals?
Yes, all of our Total Protection products are non-nano, reef-safe and 100% free from parabens, oils, sulfates, phthalate, animal testing, artificial fragrances and gluten.
Is this a stand-alone moisturiser or can it be worn under/on top of my favorite moisturiser as an SPF?
Although Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 is formulated with hydrating ingredients such as vitamins, phytomoist and niacinamide, if you have dry or fragile skin, it is best applied after your moisturiser.
Is this product fragrance free?
Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is hypoallergenic and free from aritificial fragrances and dyes.
I have tried numerous face sunscreens and none of them seem to suit me as the minute I put foundation over it it seems to go patchy and an oily mess. Does this face spf go well under foundation without going patchy?
Yes, the Sunforgettable Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is oil-free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and blends seamlessly into the skin to give you an invisible protection from UVB/UVA rays, pollution and blue light wihout messing up your makeup.
Is this tinted so that it is like a tinted moisturiser?
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 has a universal shade due to the coloring of iron oxides. However, when it applied on the skin, the formula is completely translucent, adding no colour or white residue unlike other mineral sunscreen care products.
Do I need to use make-up remover before washing my face if I only wear this without make-up?
No, the Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 has lighweight, non-comedogenic formula that doesn't require a standalone makeup remover. You can use you regular cleanser to wash off any product residue and contunie with your usual skincare routine.
Does total perfection face shield protect from blue rays like phone or computer Thanks
Yes. Our Total protection Face Shield SPF 50 features our proprietary EnviroScreen Technology. Our patented formula combines specialty ingredients that work synergistically to protect skin from damage caused by exposure to UVA/UVB rays, pollution, blue light (also known as High Energy Visible, or HEV, light), and infrared radiation.
What is the exact PPD rating on this product?
We don't use PPD to rate the UVA protection of our products. There is no standartised system to evaluate PPD score, so PPD protection can't be measured precisely and consistently. Instead we use the PA rating which is the standartised UVA testing system in the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, Germany and the United States. Our Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 has PA+++.
How much product (ml) should be used to get the SPF 50 protection?
To get the SPF 50 protection, you should use approximately two miligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin. In practice, this means a nickel-sized dollop to the face alone and the equivalent of a shot glass (two full tablespoons) to the exposed areas of the body. Don't forget to apply your sun protection to the tops of your feet, ears and neck and reapply every two hours!
is this product hydrating enough to use under makeup by itself, or would i still need to use a moisturiser first? many thanks
Total Protection Face Shield is enhanced with hydrators and is therefore sufficent for normal and combination skin. However, if you have extremely dry skin we would recommend adding an extra hydration boost with our Hydrating Mist or our Calming Perfector which soothes irritation and extends your makeup wear.
Hola! can this product be used around the eye orbital including eye lids? Thanks
Yes, Total Protection Face Shield can be used around the eye area including the eyelids.

Hi! is it all mineral sun screen? And will it fits me if i have very very pale skin?
Hi! Yes our Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF50 is 100% mineral. It comes in 1 shade which is universal designed to blend in to all skin tones, including very pale.
I have used many mineral sunscreens over the years, this one is my favourite right now. It's not drying, you can apply many layers and it doesn't look cakey. It now comes in a choice of shades which is brilliant. It gives a shiny finish, I don't mind, I use a bit of powder on top, but for those with very oily skin it might not be ideal.
I’ve just bought two bottles, these being my fight and sixth time I repurchase. I have dehydrated skin and this sunscreen just works perfectly, skin is hydrated, not greasy and work great under makeup
This is the best tinted sunscreen I have used so far (and I have tried tinted sunscreens of different brands - just to give you few examples La Roche Posay, NeoStrata, Avene, Bioderma, ultrasun). If your skin if fair, like mine is, then the medium original colour is for you. It blends really nicely. I highly recommend it.
It is great to have finally found a light textured, fragrance and alcohol free SPF 50 that doesn’t leave a ghostly white film! I would prefer a non tinted product but it is very subtle and is I guess the reason why there is no white residue.
So far so good, very smooth to go on without blotches or looking white on the face. Wears well under makeup
