Dr. Jart+ Every Sun Day Moisturizing Sun SPF 50+ – Review

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about this brand, so here’s another review of Dr. Jart +’s product.

This sunscreen contains a mix of chemical filters which provides us with good anti-UV protection of SPF 50+ and PA++++ (4). The sunscreen contains a lot of skin-benefiting ingredients like adenosine, ceramide NP, and niacinamide, to name a few. Even though the sunscreen doesn’t contain alcohol, it includes a copious amount of essential oils, nine to be precise. The mix of essential oils renders this product unsuitable for people with sensitive skin, and it poses a risk of causing irritation to anyone using it.

I must say that I like the texture of this sunscreen, it gives me Altruist and Nivea Sun vibes. It has a gel-cream consistency, and it isn’t too heavy on the skin. If you apply about a quarter of a teaspoon it is invisible on the face, if you use half a teaspoon, then it leaves a glossy finish, which may be too much for some people. Over the course of the day, it gets worse, but nothing a blotting paper can’t fix. It works well with BB creams, and it gives a sort of glass skin look when you apply one over it. So far it sounds pretty good, right?

Unfortunately, it isn’t that enjoyable to wear it for an extended period. This sunscreen is what I like to call a traveller type. It will creep into your eyes and mouth, and it will continue doing so until you remove it. Don’t get me wrong, I like my sunscreens, but I don’t want them in my mouth or eyes. And it’s not like other sunscreens don’t get in my eyes, many do, but not all of them make my eyes water. The first two days when I was testing this sunscreen, I was weeping because the moment it entered my eyes, they were full of tears. After two days of crying, I stopped applying it near my eyes. And even though many sunscreens dribble into my eyes, not too many make my eyes water immediately. I blame the mix of essential oils for this reaction, almost allergic-like, but it could be any other ingredient too. I also suspect that it isn’t water-resistant, given how prone to transfer this sunscreen is. I can’t find information about it, but my experience makes me think that I am right. Lastly, it breaks me out, for which I don’t blame Dr. Jart+, they designed a product for dry skin, and it’s very moisturising. I could’ve read the product description better before buying.

Overall, it’s a very moisturising sunscreen with satisfactory anti-UV protection. It is cosmetically elegant in small quantities. However, there are three main issues with this product: it transfers, contains too many essential oils, and isn’t water-resistant at all.

  1. Ugh 😫… It drives me bloody crazy when my sunscreen transfers — especially when it’s onto my clothing. I tend to wear light colours, and *so* many sunscreens leave these annoying yellow stains around my collar and cuffs (and also just above my knees, from where I’ve been resting my sunscreened arms whilst reading the newspaper! A great look…😒)
    So far, the only sunscreens I’ve found to be reliably indelible are the ones marketed as being for very oily skin. The La Roche – Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine being a good example. One sunscreen I’m *really* keen to try is the EVY

    1. I can’t stand it when sunscreens transfer onto my clothes as well. I tend to wear dark colours, and they leave white marks everywhere, so it isn’t any better. On some of my clothes, I stick plasters or a bit of microporous tape to avoid stains from sunscreens. For arms, I’d recommend UPF sleeves they are, easy to put on and take off, or long sleeve shirts/tops.
      I like Vichy’s equivalent to the sunscreen you mention; the products are pretty similar as both LRP and Vichy belong to L’Oréal. Many Japanese sunscreens, especially those that include zinc oxide, create lasting films that are resistant to friction and sweating; they are definitely worth giving a try.
      I’ve seen the Envy sunscreens on Instagram, but I don’t think I will ever reach them. It would be difficult for me to measure how much sunscreen I actually apply, as those sunscreens are in cans and are extruded as mousse, which has a lot of air in it. So in order to use the right amount of sunscreen, first I’d have to remove the air from the mousse, then measure the sunscreen and apply it. Too much work and there are plenty of sunscreens on the market that require less effort.
