    • Why it's Cult

      When Pai Skincare founder Sarah Brown’s skin became irritated, hyper-sensitive and acne-prone out of the blue, she set about creating a skin care line that would let her take back control. The result: Pai Skincare, a pure, potent line brimming with organic ingredients that will soothe even the most distressed complexions. A daily mineral sunscreen that protects your skin from broad spectrum UVA and UVB rays, blue light and infra-red rays, this coral reef-friendly formula covers all bases. Non-greasy, it is easily applied onto skin without clogging pores or irritating sensitive skin types.

    Pai Skincare British Summer Time Reviews

    Great sunscreen-not a miracle worker for skin problems
    This is my third tube. I usually do not write reviews, but I feel I need to write this one. Tomorrow I will turn 40 and for the past 25 years I have used cosmetics, tried pretty much every single product that addresses oily skin. During and after pregnancies, I decided that I will use clean skincare and make up. My personal choice which I have not regretted. I am Caucasian and I live in a mediterranean country, I have medium complexion and I tan easily. I have enlarged pores on my T-zone and my skin tends to get oily during the day. As I opted for silicone-free zinc-oxide sunscreen-not all are alike. I have tried many brands-during the summer no matter which brand I used, my face used to sweat in my upper lip zone and the sunscreen would melt from my face. With this one it only used to sweat-but it stayed put. It does not break me out at all. But you have to keep one thing in mind-this is the last step of your skincare routine. As this is a zinc-oxide sunscreen, it will always at least a bit dry out your skin. So no matter if you have an oily skin like me, you need to hydrate A LOT before putting sunscreen on and let products sink in before sunscreen. This one will leave a barely noticeable white cast, but during the summer I used ti mix it with one or two pumps of Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi and it works amazing. Now, during the winter, I blend it in well and the white cast dissapears. I truly recommend Pai sunscreen as for now I have not found anything like it that leaves my skin healthy and protected. A big plus is that it works amazing with other skincare product, it does not pill and it does not "sit on the skin". Amazing product.
    Made me break out
    I had been using it for about a month, it smelt great (rosy) and it wasn’t greasy. However, it did make me break out all over my cheeks and collarbone (I apply my sunscreen down to my collarbone). I would recommend this for people who aren’t acne prone!
    Didn't like it
    Although my skin is not sensitive but rather normal/dehydrated, I like gentle skincare so I've decided to try this sunscreen. I've used it several times and like the natural finish (not matte, nor greasy). However, I can't stand the feeling of this sunscreen, it feels very heavy and "suffocating". Note that I live in a hot and very humid climate. Definitely won't repurchase.
    Nice sunscreen!
    My skin is oily and break-out-prone, but I can use this without any problems. It's not matte but not greasy either. Sinks nicely into the skin and can also be used under makeup. I wish they made an SPF50 version!
    Wonderful sunscreen
    Lovely to use and covers well Have been looking all over for a facial sunscreen and this one is perfect.
    Fab
    Great SPF, non-greasy and perfect thickness. Really easy to rub it.
    Ok sunscreen
    Is a decent sunscreen but does leave a white cast on my medium Indian skin tone! The texture is good for a sunscreen as most are very thick and heavy, however this is not. The scent isn’t the best but again better than most other sunscreens I’ve tried!
    OMG
    Best mineral sun screen I’ve ever tried! No white cast, not too thick and sink in easily, gives a natural finish, not to matte, not to shiny. Will buy again and again!
    Great SPF
    It's a great sunscreen, sinks into the skin nicely without an oily sheen (...I have normal to dry skin), sits nicely under makeup, and small enough tube to travel with or through into a bag.
    irritating
    This makes my skin sting and leaves a white cast. I don't have especially sensitive skin but this is so unpleasant to use I really can't bring myself to. When I do, I use about half what is recommended when I do because of the white cast. By the middle of the day, my skin feels somehow both dry, irritated, and tight, and as if there is a greasy, sticky layer on top of it. On the plus side, I always remember to take my make up off and early, as I can't wait to cleanse when I use this product!
    not for me
    I bought this sunscreen after reading good reviews about it, but honestly this product is not for me at all, my skin did not absorb this product at all and it felt awful on my skin and I have sensitive somewhat dry skin. Definitely will not repurchase it again I can't even stand it on my skin the days I've used it it made me feel irritated and had to wipe or try to wipe it all off.
    Sticky and broken my skin out
    I really wanted to like this product as it ticks a lot of boxes for me but I only used it a couple of times as it left my slimy and sticky and felt like it wasn’t absorbing into the skin. My make up would slip and wouldn’t last as long as normal. To make things worse my skin broke out in painful spots that have taken over a week to go.
    Perfect sunscreen!
    This is the best sunscreen I’ve ever used! I’ve found it really hard to find a natural sunscreen to suit my acne-prone combination skin with oiliness and dryness that looks great under makeup and leaves no white cast, but this is all those things and more! It’s got amazing ingredients and is light but also moisturizing and I was shocked that there was no white cast even when I first put it on!
    It's good but not perfect!
    I like this sunscreen because I prefer my skin to have a dewier finish and this doesn't leave it matte (it feels like every face spf leaves a matte finish). Once rubbed in, it feels light and doesn't look greasy as the day goes on. It also doesn't pill up or sting the eye area. However it does have a very slight white cast on my NC25 skin - this does eventually disappear but I'm not convinced this would be the case for darker skin tones. I probably would repurchase but would love a bigger tube!
    Best natural mineral spf
    This SPF is the BEST clean/natural mineral spf's I’ve ever used in my life. Absolutely beautiful upon application, silky to the touch and leaves no white cast even with my heavy over application. Don’t be put off by the essential oils in the formula, there is absolutely no scent. I think if I was to rate this less than 5 stars it would be the fact that this is expensive for the small amount of product you get (40ml). As this will not last more than a month and a half, but it’s my holy grail and I will continue to repurchase, please consider making a value size (60/80ml tube)! I did speak to Pai, in which they said it took over 7 years to perfect this formula, so I understand the price point. Thanks Pai for another great product.
    Great for oily skin
    Feels great on, not too heavy for oily skin and it sinks into the skin completely! Also, it made my skin look less oily throughout the day! It does have a slight scent but disappears once the product has been on for a bit. I have fair skin, however, some I'm not sure about the white cast.
    Solid SPF!
    As a product development chemist, I know how hard it is to nail a decent mineral SPF! I have been testing this for a week now and I really like the texture and natural finish of the product (not really matte, but a nice sheen without being greasy) and how quickly it sinks in- you can put your make-up on pretty much straight away afterwards, with no pilling. I'm half Indian so always dubious of white-cast with mineral SPFs but there is little to none with this! Also I have acne prone skin and haven't experienced any major breakouts since using it. The only downside for me is the addition of essential oils as I don't like scented products on my face, but it isn't too overpowering so is bearable. Nice one Pai!
