TBN: Sun Protection Edition- Dr. Sam's Flawless Daily Sunscreen Review
Updated: Jul 22, 2019
I've been following London-based dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting on her YouTube channel for years. She's a no-nonsense, straight talker who loves beauty and skincare, so you get the best of both worlds: a wealth of knowledge from someone you feel is on your side. She gets it. While I occasionally have a difference of opinion (she's famously against double cleansing but that is something that has transformed my skin for the better), her advice is undoubtedly beauty gold.
Her line currently consists of only three products (with more to follow soon): a cleanser, a moisturiser and an SPF. All three are suitable for all skin types, but are formulated especially for sensitive skin. I have thoroughly tested the SPF, but also made my whole family try it as well- my mother, my husband and my son. Hand on heart, we all adored it.
I was the most difficult one to please I guess, because I need the consistency to be magical in order for me to like it. I want SPF to be imperceptible and I HATE pastiness, chalkiness and stickiness on my skin. Dr. Sam has a 13-point system for applying SPF correctly, which seems excessive compared to what we are used to. But you have to listen to the doctor people. If there's anything I've learned in life, it's that you need to turn to specialists first, in order to be a knowledgeable consumer. Not everything depends on 'opinion'. Sometimes there are only facts. And SPF has been extensively studied enough for us to know how much and how often we need to apply.
I follow her system and I have been doing my 12k walks in the sun. I am also currently on heavy retinol. I have not had the slightest impact from sunlight or hint of redness, let alone burn. My skin seems to be completely protected but also nourished from this SPF. It's so light but creamy, so easy to apply. The whiteness completely disappears after two minutes and it makes an excellent base for makeup. This is a wonderful product which I cannot recommend enough. More reviews on her products to follow. The Flawless SPF is available to buy here. Delivery was fast and smooth.
