Excellent coverage with light feel

I love this sunscreen. It has a very light smell and feels very light on my skin. It has been gentle on my sensitive, acne-prone skin.

I love this NATURAL SPF 30! Thicker than chemical SPF but works better and doesn't make me breakout. I love to mix it with my Carotene Glow Booster for a hint of tint and all the antioxidants my skin can handle!

Feels more like a mask than a lotion...

...a bit dry, and white, going on, and feels like a mask more than a lotion. Needs to be massaged a good deal, but after it still feels dry. Not sure I'll buy it again, though I admire the company. I'll keep trying with this product.

Cocoon Apothecary Canada

Thank you for the review Michel. If you are finding this SPF to be a bit thick and drying for your skin we recommend trying to mix it with some of your facial lotion and or serum depending on what you use. This does help it go on thinner and makes it a little easier to apply especially through the beard/stubble. The product does work best when warmed up in the fingers prior to application. We do hope these tips and tricks help you enjoy the rest of the product!

Loved this product

Have been trying to find a sunscreen in a sustainable package for a long time now!! Too boot this is slightly tinted so it doesn’t leave a white cast at all on my skin. The consistency is a bit on the stickier side so it took a few times to get use too but lays really well under make up. Will definitely be purchasing again. I have been using consistently for two weeks and have acne prone skin and it seemed to not bother thus far either!!! So happy this is in a glass jar! Love love love.

Love that it's a natural spf

I have seen so many great reviews on this products that with the summer and always being outside at parks and splash pads with my daughter I decided to give it a go. I also have fairly sensitive skin and a lot of redness . In the past I would break out from a lot of the sunscreens even though I was very careful with what I purchased. I gave this one a try I did like the packaging, the fact that it's natural, but when I received it I did feel the texture wasn't as light as I expected and as a lot of the reviews said. Even when you look at the bottle the product inside looks a bit...how do I put it almost like cottage cheese or so. It doesn't come out as light as I expected it to be. It does feel quite greasy throughout the day even though it is advertised as light weight I have had lighter spfs in the past. At first maybe I thought it was old or a bad batch but the date on it says 2023 so I think it fairly fresh. I'm not really sure maybe I'll contact them to ask if that's normal. Overall though it is a nice product and I love all their products so far.

Hi Monika, thank you for sharing your honest thoughts with us. The texture of this SPF is on the thicker side, we recommend to get the lightest weight of this product, you warm it up in the fingers before applying to your skin. With that said, adding a touch of Carotene Glow or Nordic booster to the spf can help it feel super lightweight and not overly sticky.

Nice light formula

Love this formula!! I don't wear any makeup so this was a nice surprise not being used to having anything other than moisturizer on my face! Have tried other brands that feel like you're wearing a plastic cover on your face! This formula blends in well and is not heavy or goopy! Definitely will buy again!

Refelctor SPF 30 Facial Sun Protection

This is a wonderful product that goes on in a thick noticeable cream so you can see where you have covered and don't miss any spots. It absorbs and is completely invisible once applied and does not leave an oily film like other facial sun creams. It is a great base with a good everyday level of protection. It is a part of daily moisture routine now.

Orange for summer!

I can’t even count the ways I love these products. I switched over to the orange line for summer - instant refresher! The smell is SO clean and pleasant, it’s therapy on its own. Given the ridiculous heat waves we’re experiencing, this was a perfect choice. And I LOVE the fact that I recycle the cardboard packing box and compost the packing peanuts. There’s nothing to throw in the garbage!

I find this sunscreen not only offers good coverage , but it also minimizes redness due to the zinc content. I use two pumps plus one pump mineral based foundation for a glowy, tinted coverage .

Excellent facial sun protection

Unlike many facial spf products, this one is not greasy. It take a bit to soak in, but after that, you don't notice it at all, and is easy to wear daily during the summer months. I'd definitely recommend this product and be buying it regularly.

I love the product

I love the facial sun screen. I didn't love the customer response I got when I called about the perfume tester that didn't arrive. The person on the phone tried to say I lost it or threw it out. He was rude, and condescending. There was no need for that on top of the fact I paid $5 for the missing tester!

06/09/2021

Cocoon Apothecary Canada

We certainly apologize if you found the interaction to be rude and condescending. In our experience, when customers call about a missing sample of Persephone, it is almost always found at the bottom of the box, so we always ask our customers to check the box again. Glad you loved the sun screen.
