The Bioage Bio-Sunprotect sunscreen comes in a white, cardboard box on which all of the essential information is printed. However, understanding the inscriptions is highly unlikely as the language used is Portuguese, whereas if it were in English there wouldn’t be any trouble with that. The sunscreen itself comes in a 45 g tube with a secure lid, which makes it perfect for travelling.
This sunscreen has a very light smell that doesn’t cause irritation, as opposed to many other kinds that give off a pungent smell.
This sunscreen has a thick, creamy texture.
You will have to massage the cream evenly over the face and body so it can be absorbed by the skin without leaving any white traces. Reapply every two hours to maintain its effect.
We tried out this sunscreen on combination skin, knowing that it is suitable for all types of skin, and we primarily noticed its cooling and refreshing feel upon application, which is considered to be vital especially when exposed to direct sunlight. It also mattified the shiny facial areas (forehead, nose, and chin), making it suitable for either oily or combination skin.
After a long day at the beach, neither did we find any redness on the face or body, nor did we notice any discoloration or visible patches as the sunscreen provided full protection, bearing in mind that we reapplied it every two hours.
In addition to its visible effect, Bio-Sunprotect combats free radicals and acts as a 24-hour antioxidant according to Bioage. Hence, it doesn’t only protect from harmful sunlight, but it also plays a vital role in protecting against pollution and reducing signs of aging, which makes it an essential component in your daily routine.
The Bioage Bio-Sunprotect sunscreen retails at 29.4 USD per 45 g (45 ml), which is considered to be affordable compared to other types of sunscreen such as Avène SPF50+ Anti-Aging Suncare at 38 USD per 50 ml, or Anthelios XL Tinted Dry touch gel-cream anti-shine SPF 50+ sold at the same price and size as Avène.
