[#Gifted] Bellflower Carrot Mild Sunscreen Review ๐Ÿฅ•

Beta-Carotene has been a focus point for many K-Beauty brands since late last year and has fully become all the rage as of this year. I’ve used it in oils and serums, and last month brought the opportunity to try Carrot Root Extract in a sunscreen.

Essentially it is a skin conditioning ingredient & is often used as a natural alternative to artificial dyes used in yellow/orange toned cosmetics. โฃ

I’m always searching for creamy sunscreens which aren’t greasy but still give that satin and not totally matte finish to skin. This sunscreen absorbs quickly, yet not totally undetectable as is it’s vanished into thin air minutes after application. It has a soft texture, although I wouldn’t describe it as ‘airy’: not that’s it feels like it’s dragging skin either, it’s the ideal medium.โฃ

I appreciate how it’s peach colour is natural rather than synthetic. For anyone wondering, it’s not a tinted sunscreen as such. Once blended out the colour doesn’t stay like a tinted sunscreen or tone-up sunscreen. You must work the formula well into skin to actually ensure there isn’t a white cast, but actually that goes without saying. I’ll be reviewing the Watermelon version of this Sunscreen soon and will compare it to this Carrot one.
