The only SPF for my face

5

I LOVE this product. I hated using SPF on my face as it always made me break out or gave a horrible shine I couldn’t get rid of (combination skin with slight rosacea) I discovered Survival 30 a couple of years ago and was obsessed. The formula is beautiful, it feels like velvet and goes on really nicely. I never burnt when wearing it, which is unheard of. However, I have fair-medium skin and had to start adding liquid bronzer (NIOD photography fluid 8% works well) when I got the slightest tan. By the end of summer, it was far too pale for my complexion. I turned to Survival 20 and never looked back. The formula is thinner and sinks into the skin even better. The pale caste is much less noticeable, and I still don’t burn when using it. If I don’t wash my face for hours and hours after applying, I can get a couple of blemishes, but that is rare. Overall it is the only SPF I will put on my face, the formula is perfect. That said, please find a way to create a Survival for darker skin tones, everyone should be able to enjoy this brilliant product.

Beautifully formulated

This sunscreen is the best I've tried, hands down.. and I've tried alot! It goes into your skin like velvet. It has a slight tint to it, not orangy in the slightest though! It just smoothes out thentone of your skin. It leaves a slight white cast for about 30 seconds then it's gone. Makeup goes on top of it with no issues of pilling or not sitting on the skin properly. My skin is combination and usually dehydrated, I use skincare underneath this. I cannot recommend this enough!!

A Little Silver, That's All!

4

I found this to be light in texture, but still took some time to blend in. Once it did, my skin felt nice and smooth but there was a slight, silver tint to my skin. It sort of sat on top of the skin, but that can still be blended in. Saying that, it’s not time efficient to be fighting with a product to ‘sink into’ the skin. The SPF is 20 which, for me, is not enough. But I have noticed in this range that the 20 is designed for medium brown skin. It is an overall decent texture and would wear if I was planning on doing some errands (eg; food shop, quick walk round the park). But, it wouldn’t be enough for me if I wanted to sit out in the sun for some length of time. The downfall to this was the slight silver tint left on my skin but again, it does disappear after a good rub and, not bad if your going to wear foundation.

Worth the price

5

I have combination skin so finding an everyday SPF can be tricky. I was apprehensive about the product until I tried it. It feels amazing on my skin and keeps me shine free after a long walk. The formula is tinted, but I have extremely fair skin and haven’t noticed the difference (though it may be worth double-checking if you have darker skin). I have received a few comments on how clear my skin looks, and I do think it aids in calming down redness and improving the look of my acne scars. It’s an absolute winner.

Not Greasy or White

Love this SPF. I also wanted the 30, but the 20 is working well. I actually do wear it without makeup some days. The consistency is easily applied and it isn’t white on my face, it’s almost flesh colored. Will buy again!

No need for foundation!

5

I am approaching 50 with still slightly oily skin. I don't fuss with it a lot I cleanse with a solid Lush oil and use squaline, rosehip and Marula oils at night to moisturise. All this oil has made me less oily. I use a Lush solid primer in the morning and usually use a light coverage foundation and set with powder and am lucky if it stays on for three hours. This though changes eveything! I was worried reading about the tint but I am pale and it is not visible. What it is is good enough to not use foundation. It creates an even tone with a lovely soft feel.It mattifies and lasts through the work day and in to the evening. I've never known a foundation do that. My skin has never looked so good, everyone keeps commenting on how nice I look. I bought it as sunblock but it has become my staple foundation. It does smell of tomato soup though but it is with it!

Best spf ever!

5

This product is a game-changer! You don’t feel it on your face at all, super light water-like texture but with a silky touch. Love it! And the most important for me it’s perfect for oily skin and keeps it mat all day long. Also, it’s very easy to reapply. Highly recommend!

Survival 20

Product is actually fine but I wish the copy would make it clear that is a tinted serum. I was specifically looking for a clear serum and ended up with a tinted SPF.

Perfect sunscreen and serum

5

I bought it because Survival 30 was out of stock. I love its texture and soft colour. It all works like a perfect moisturiser and base for makeup. My skin looks very healthy. Highly recommend it for dry, normal or oily skin types.

perfect skin care

5

I bought the Survival 20 as a winter sunscreen to be worn under makeup daily (and also because the survival 30 was sold out). This is a beautiful medium-thin tinted fluid that blends and sits beautifully under my primer and makeup. I do use a silicone-based primer, and since this is also silicone-based they wok together quite well. Definitely no white cast and looks beautifully natural. Almost good enough to wear on its own. Would recommend!
