Keeki Pure & Simple Sunscreen, SPF 30,
This sunscreen is amazing. I have melasma on my face, and as such, I searched high and low for a good chemical free sunscreen to prevent my condition from worsening. Chemical sunscreen, while not good for anyone, is particularly bad for those with melasma. In my search, most of the sunscreens that I found were thick and when applied to the skin, resulted in a pasty white color that just wouldn't blend. With this sunscreen being intended for my face, pasty, thick, and white just will not work. With Keeki though, this is not the case. No pasty, white, or thick here. It was the first brand/type I found that I was completely happy with. The price is a bit higher than the cheap, drugstore chemical sunscreens, but it's worth every penny. You definitely get what you pay for when it comes to sunscreen, and Keeki is no exception.
The sunscreen is white, as it's a physical blocking type of sunscreen (which is ideal and preferred over the chemical kind), but fortunately, it goes on smoothly, and blends easily on the skin. I rub it on my face in the morning, let sit for 5 minutes, then apply my regular foundation on top, and it's a perfect fit. It also lasts all day, if you don't sweat or get into water, etc. I am wearing it mainly to drive to work before the sun comes up, then to sit at my desk, where I am inside all day without sun, so one coat in the morning, each day works for me. However, depending on one's lifestyle, application frequency may need to be adjusted.
The lotion itself has a smooth, silky, non-thick texture, and smells faintly like bananas. Whenever I wear it, my boyfriend, who hates perfume, tells me I smell good. It's a clean scent, and something that anyone would like.
If you have doubts about this product, please go to the Keeki sunscreen page and read about it. It's truly natural, organic, and truly protecting for your skin, without being thick, pasty, or perfumed. From here on out, this will be the sunscreen for me. I bought the 30 SPF and will be sticking with that strength and this brand from here on out. I sincerely hope that this product is never discontinued, as the Keeki brand has a customer for life, in me.
