I know a lot of people are wary when it comes to organic or natural sunscreens after what happened to Jessica Alba’s environmentally-friendly brand, Honest Company, which received a ton of backlash in 2015 from their consumers after their sold out sunscreens that claims to include “everything you need, nothing you don’t,” turns out to be ineffective in preventing unhealthy exposure to harmful UV rays. But of course, that didn’t stopped other brands from formulating their own organic sunscreens just like Body Luxe by House of Vanity Enterprise, which is committed to bringing the best and affordable All Natural Skin Care and Body Products to the Market. And this brings me to my Body Luxe Organic Mist Sunscreen Spray review, is it safe, effective, affordable? I say, just keep reading to learn more.
What is it?
Body Luxe Organic Mist Sunscreen Spray with SPF 50 is a 100% Natural, non-sticky, quick drying sunscreen that offers maximum protection for daily use, outdoor and swimming activities. It provides broad spectrum protection against UV rays and it is formulated with Vitamin E to prevent further skin damage to prevent early signs of skin ageing.
What’s in it?
On the back label, it says it contains: Isopropyl Palmitate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Octylmethoxycinnamate, Ethylhexylsalicylate, Octocrylene, Betyldodecano, Castor Oil, Tocophenyl Acetate.
APPLICATION: Spray a few amount on the hands and spread evenly throughout the body and the face thirty minutes before sun exposure. Reapply if necessary especially when in contact with water.
PACKAGING: It is packaged in an ordinary plastic spray bottle, nothing fancy about it. But I do like that it is transparent so I’m always aware how much sunscreen mist are left, unlike in other sunscreens which you rely on the weight. The spray is okay too, it sprays wide enough for direct skin application.
SMELL: It kinda smell like sandalwood and oil.
RESULT: I brought my Body Luxe Organic Mist Spray on my recent trip and I religiously sprayed it on my sun exposed skin. I love that it’s non-sticky at all, unlike other sunscreen sprays I used before, so it wasn’t uncomfortable and was easy to spread evenly on my skin. It’s also true that it is quick-drying, my skin absorbed it immediately. I also love that it’s colorless so it doesn’t stain my swimsuit.
It doesn’t indicate on the label when I should reapply it, so on my outdoor activities such as hiking and zip lining, I reapplied after more or less one hour. While I was doing water activities such as swimming, I reapplied every after 20-30 minutes, just to be sure. I really hate sunburns. And yes, I didn’t had any sunburn at all! And since this product is not sticky and easy to spread, I only managed to use half a bottle of mist!
PROS: Non-sticky, quick drying, has SPF 50 (enough for a tropical sun exposure), and organic.
CONS: Only available in the Philippines, yet, and nothing fancy about the packaging.
Would I buy it again? Overall, I love this product! This is now my favorite product from Body Luxe.
