Glossier Invisible Shield Review

The warm weather is here, I have no idea how long it will stay - it's England after all! But I am going to be making sure my skin is protected against sun damage from now on. I have tried so many different facial SPFs and I have always hated how they feel on the skin and that they interfere with the way my makeup applies and wears until I tried this gem.

The Invisible Shield from Glossier is a non-comedogenic sunscreen for the face. It has SPF 30 and it's perfect to use before applying makeup. With almost every facial SPF I have tried, they have always left a white cast behind which is why I wanted to try this one so much because it's clear! This product is suitable for all skin types and is paraben-free while also being cruelty-free and vegan. 

This SPF is an absolute must for me and I have been using it every single morning since I purchased it. It's to be used after moisturising (I like to use the Priming Moisturiser from Glossier), before applying makeup and to be used 15 minutes before sun exposure and it so bt reapplied every two hours for optimal protection. It's not water-resistant so it's not recommended for swimming. As it is clear, it applies clear to the skin so there really is no white cast, this is fantastic for me as I don't like to wear base products too much in the summer. It's so quick and easy to apply due to it having a pump so there is no excuse for not protecting my skin. 

This applies like water to the skin due and is extremely lightweight due to the water gel formulation. It contains no drying alcohol or thick/greasy ingredients so it really does disappear into the skin, it sinks in within seconds. This is the main reason why I love it so much because it doesn't interfere with how my makeup applies or wears throughout the day. It's very breathable on the skin and many SPFs are clogging on the pores which isn't great when you have acne-prone skin but this one ticks all the boxes for me! It doesn't clog the pores or irritate my skin in the slightest, it just gets to work! 

I haven't noticed any additional sun damage and I like knowing that when I apply this every day my skin is protected. I never used to apply SPF regularly because they would usually feel sticky or greasy on the skin but I have actually been enjoying applying this every morning, it has a slightly fruity scent too that I love. If you're looking for a new facial SPF, I would highly recommend this one as it does offer UVB and UVA protection.
