When it comes to sunscreen, I prefer a heavy dose of SPF. I’m fair & freckled but I honestly think everyone should be as SPF obsessive as me. However, when I’m sitting around the house or having a low to no makeup day, I try not to waste SPF on nothing. When Badger’s Damascus Rose SPF 16 Face Sunscreen Lotion came into my life, I was wary. Would I like the scent? Is 16 enough SPF for daily use? & would my picky skin accept or reject this as a moisturizer?

Let’s start with scent: I love it. I was nervous. Sometimes scented lotions are just weird on the face. This one smells beautiful, natural, & feminine. It isn’t a light scent either, you can definitely smell it. I hate the “sunscreen scent” so this was perfect for me! It really is a mix of the rose, lavender, & chamomile not just one or 2. You can definitely smell them all!
I was a bit worried to use this when I was outdoors because its been so humid & gross here. I stuck to using it mostly indoors with some light outdoor work like running errands or throwing toys with the dogs. I didn’t accumulate any additional sun damage & it felt nice on the skin. I applied it down my neck as well. It says to reapply every 2 hours if you’re swimming or sweating so I figured it was safe. It was!
My skin loved it! Maybe its all the treatments I’ve been trying lately or the very non-natural ingredients I’ve been putting on it. It’s actually quite soothing & feels a bit thick in your hands. But then you realize you don’t need a lot & it thins out to the perfect layer.
I don’t use it every day but I very well could. It smells divine, provides the right amount of moisture for normal skin without over doing my oily combo skin. I haven’t had any reactions to this, probably because of how natural it is. My biggest plus is how I feel when I apply it: I honestly think is has a calming, romantic effect to it! Plus, I will always like a glass bottle with a pump, such a step above other methods.
