Review: MakeP:Rem UV Defense Sun Fluid SPF50+

Combining both completely safe chemical and physical blockers, this sun block makes sure that your skin receives comprehensive coverage from the sun’s UV rays.

Seeing this product hyped up by other skincare experts, I was excited to try out MakeP:rem’s sunscreen, noting its unique combination of chemical and mineral filters. This is a full body + face sunscreen, so the container is large, and so far I’ve found it perfectly appropriate for about 3-5 months of use (if used daily and repeatedly, though I will admit I rarely apply sunscreen every 2 hours as is recommended – though I also don’t get outside much anyways, haha). The liquid is runny and spreads across the body quickly, absorbing into the skin after a few gentle rubs. On the body, the sunscreen is transparent and sinks in easily. On the face, the sunscreen leaves a slight white-cast than turns into a slight orange-yellow crust after a few hours – so definitely wear this under make-up.

The Takeaway

There are so many wonderful ingredients in this sunscreen and its massive container makes it so tempting to repurchase . . . but that white-cast just isn’t what I’m looking for. If you’re fine with a bit of white-cast and don’t have easily clogged skin, then this sunscreen may be a DREAM for you, but as for me, I’m going to keep looking.
