Discover the performance of The Skin Story Sun Mousse SPF 15 during daily application.

For years, dermatologists have been emphasizing the importance of sunscreen and the need to apply it daily.

That being said, a multitude of products have sprung up to meet different needs.

And, stumbling across The Skin Story Sunscreen Mousse seemed like the answer to a lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen formula.

Here is all about the skincare product and how it served me.

Mousse is a lightweight whipped foundation that provides a natural, non-greasy finish. It is suitable for oily skin as it provides a matte finish by effectively masking wrinkles, fine lines and pores.

The SPF 15 formula is guaranteed to protect you from the harmful effects of the sun and UVA and UVB rays by blending in perfectly.

Sun mousse claims to be suitable for all skin types without leaving a white streak like many sunscreens tend to do.

It can also be applied instantly before going out in the sun. You don’t have to wait 30 minutes.

What does sun foam contain?

The three main ingredients are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and vitamin E.

Zinc Oxide is a mineral sunscreen that diffuses, reflects and absorbs harmful UV rays.

Titanium Dioxide, also a mineral sunscreen, spreads easily on the skin, leaving it feeling light and dry with a whitening tint.

Vitamin E protects proteins like collagen, keratin and elastin, keeping skin soft and healthy.

Shelf life and instructions for use of the mousse

The shelf life of the cruelty-free, vegan and non-toxic product is 24 months.

Priced at Rs. 849, it comes in a 40g jar nestled in a box.

Apply small dots of foam to your face. Use a beauty sponge or your fingers to blend it into your skin.

To soften the look, you can lightly press a damp makeup sponge onto your skin.

Experience of using sunscreen foam

The foam is light on the face and also conceals fine lines giving your face a firmer look.

However, it leaves behind a disturbing white cast that is hard to get rid of.

As for the formula of the sunscreen, it is SPF 15, much lower than the SPF 30 recommended by dermatologists, which blocks 97% of UVB rays.

You must reapply frequently if you are outdoors.

If you have a much lighter complexion, it will serve as the perfect makeup base. It’s lightweight, absorbs quickly, and won’t leave you feeling cakey when applying makeup.

This foam is ideal for people with oily skin but beware of unpleasant white plaster.

There is no harm in trying; it may suit your skin well, after all.
