Time for a #productreview :
@drunkelephant #umbratinte ✌🏼
🌞First things first: Umbra is 20% zinc and is not meant to be absorbed by the skin. The larger molecule actually sits on top of the skin and provides a physical protective defense from UV rays and environmental stressors.
A little of this product goes a very long way, and just a bit too much will have a tendency to ball up. When using Umbra Tinte I would suggest the following steps: shake the tube well. Put about a pea-sized amount in your palm and rub hands together to warm the sunscreen. Pat onto face and neck. It lays on top of skin, do not try to rub in; it's a physical block. You can also add a couple drops of Marula Oil to it before applying for a smoother application.
Another thing to understand is that Drunk Elephant doesn't use silicones or chemical screens. Most sunscreens on the market that use zinc, also use chemical screens and silicones to make the application smoother while still maintaining the higher SPF. So, adding a little Marula Oil is the perfect, and healthier, way to aid in the ease pf application and it helps to avoid the natural pilling that you get from a zinc product.
At the beginning I had tried @drunkelephant Umbra WITHOUT TINT. I was happy with the sun protection but not the #whitecast it left so I picked this beauty up. Overall I was very happy with the glow it gave me and the sun protection however pulling was an issue until I reached out to @drunkelephant for some help and info. ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼 OVERALL✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼
I am happy with the look (dewy and glowy), application (pats easily on to skin and when mixed with a facial oil does not pill as bad) , ingredients, and performance of this product.
I will #repurchase
