I have been highly impressed by Liz Earle skin care products. I have found their products quite impressive till now so when they asked me to try out their Mineral Sun Cream, I agreed without hesitation. I was sent this Sun Cream a month ago. I wanted to give it some time to get some effects from it and now I'm ready to write its review.
Liz Earle Mineral Sun Cream SPF20
It's a sunscreen to save our skin from the harmful sun's rays. After applying your regular moisturizer, you can apply this cream for making a thin shield between the sun and your skin.

The sun cream comes in a light purple sturdy and practical plastic tube with flip- flop cap. The packaging is cute and easy to carry out.
The texture is thick and a bit sticky. It's quite like tinted sunscreen. It can even cover your light spots because the shade of the cream is light beige.
In the mirror of my own experience
I have been a fan of Liz Earle products & have great expectations with all it's products. The texture of this sunscreen is thick and takes some time to blend well. You'll have to make sure that it has blended well while applying to avoid that white sunscreen cast. At first I applied it when the weather was quite warm, I loved its smell & the texture too is not much sticky. For winters it's really good & it moisturizes the skin also. The problem with this cream is that it has SPF20 which is not sufficient in a warm country like India. I think Liz Earle should increase the SPF to 30 to 40. However It's a mineral sunscreen full of beneficial ingredients. So ladies who find their skin exhibiting sensitivity to chemical sunscreens could surely go for this cream. It never broke me out while I've been using it.
Nice sturdy packaging, travel friendly.
It's totally a mineral sunscreen with very useful ingredients.
It can cover light spot on the skin like a light tinted moisturizer.
A tiny amount is enough to cover up the whole face and neck.
It hasn't broken me out ever.
Very goof for the chilly weather.
The texture is a bit thick.
You have to blend it properly. Don't apply it while you are in a hurry.
SPF is not enough for my country.
Overall it's a good product, but not as awesome as other Liz Earle's products. I love the light texture of this sunscreen which didn't make my skin oily and gets absorbed it quickly. Apart from this I would love a sunscreen with high SPF. In India the weather is very hot sometimes so a high SPF sunscreen is necessary to save our skin from the hot sunrays.
The ladies who have sensitive skin and want to stay away from chemical sunscreen should try it once especially in the cold weather of India.
This sunscreen can be purchased from Liz Earle website.
