I discovered a new Lancaster face sunscreen which I feel is a breakthrough medium protection sunscreen find. Lancaster Dry Touch Gel Radiant Tan is classified as a gel for face and body. In reality, it’s half cream half gel, and in my opinion, it is a true hydrating face sun cream. I love it so much that it has ousted other face sun protection favorites. It’s now part of my best Lancaster sun cream selection.
LANCASTER DRY TOUCH GEL RADIANT TAN review
It has a light but creamy texture that moisturizes while never making feel any dryness on my face. A light gel-ish formula, means a non sticky and less sweaty face (pardon). It doesn’t melt in your eyes, so it’s a good alternative to sticks.
Being conceived for water sports, it is very water resistant, so it’s an excellent sweatproof formula that will last longer on your skin. This product is primarly conceived for water sports after all!
What sold me on that product though, is the balance between its hydration, lightness and waterproof lasting powers. The downside of gels usually is the non hydrating potential. This hybrid formula between a moisturizing cream and a gel is genius insurance in my anti-sunburn arsenal.
Need more than sun cream medium protection? Whenever I need a higher spf I can switch to the spf30 stick version, or even to Lancaster multi protection extreme conditions cream spf50 (notoriously when boating). Of course, with spf50 texture is slightly thicker, but still wonderful.
How does Lancaster dry touch radiant tan compare to my beloved Lancaster Velvet Touch spf30? It is obviously slightly less hydrating, but still, it’s moisturizing enough for any sun exposure. It is much better and bears more soothing qualities than average gel formulas. I love the dry touch sensation, no stickyness, no greasy face, and it’s longer lasting on my skin against perspiration. It is very water resistant and on top of everything, it reacts pretty well as a primer under makeup.
Isn’t this a win win situation?
Last but not least, please don’t forget to hydrate after sun, it is the key to a long lasting tan. Check my Lancaster Tan Maximizer after sun products review.
