The texture is creamy and looks similar to that of a BB Cream. But it does smell like a sunblock.
And after application:
I am happy with the result because it is like having a BB Cream on my face without really applying any. It gave a matte finish and reduced oiliness.
I did not apply anything else on my face that day and probably wiped it off a couple of times when I was perspiring during the outreach session. But when I used a wet facial tissue to wipe my face, I saw there were still residues of the UV Protector. This means it lasted an entire day and stayed put protecting my face from the harsh sun!
I am convinced that it did it's job because otherwise I always end up with really red face when out in the sun for a long time but for today, I did not look like "Hellboy" at the end of the day! It also did not feel heavy, I could pretend I had nothing on my face because it did not give the sticky, thick feeling. So, yes I would definitely buy this product again. It did a great job and I will continue using it.
