Daylong Extreme by Spirig is another sunscreen that I have tried this summer. My mother is a faithful user for years (she is extremely sensitive to sun because of the antibiotics she had to use).
Daylong comes in a 100 ml flip top tube and it retails for around $25. As far as I can see from the ingredients list, it is 100% chemical sunscreen.
The consistency is creamy and very sticky. It spreads easily, but approximately 10-15 minutes after application it sinks in and the stickiness is gone.
The scent is a turn-off (at least for me) – slightly medical with milky coconut undertone; but it disappears upon application.
When I used it underneath the make-up, it felt heavy on my face.
This sunscreen is extremely hard to wash off. It is probably the only sunscreen that I had to remove with double cleansing like I remove make-up. This signalled that it might cause the breakouts, but I didn’t get any. Another bonus is that it really moisturizes the skin – I have dehydrated oily skin, but this helped with battling the flaky skin.
In spite of the benefits, I’ll only use it as a beach sunscreen or during work-out, and not like an everyday sunscreen.
