Worthy Drugstore Find : L'oreal UV Perfector

I went to Hypermart the other day and I found an affordable sunscreen by L'oreal.It comes in two shades, a transparent and a purple-tinted shade, which is supposed to brighten the face. I bought the purple-tinted sunscreen because it would really brighten my face during my duller skin days. 

I love that it comes in a squeeze tube with a twist cap. It makes it all the more easier to control the amount of product that's going to be used later. The size of the tube is compact which makes it really travel friendly. Since it has a twist cap, the product won't spill in my bag and make a terrible mess. However, the cap is a bit dodgy sometimes, so it's hard to close.
The product doesn't contain alcohol or oil, so have no worries while using this. It comes with 30 ml product for around IDR 100,000. Although it claims to have anti-oxidants, it doesn't clearly pin point what type of anti-oxidant is included in it. 
The chemical used for sun protection is Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Drometrizole trisiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Terephthalylidene Dicamphor Sulfonic Acid and Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine. 

As for anti-oxidants, I spotted tocopherol and nymphaea alba extract. I'm not sure about this combination since most of the anti-oxidants evaporate upon sunlight exposure. Meh, I can still use an antioxidant concentrate from Paula's Choice, which is a favorite, by the way.  
It has quite a runny texture, unlike most sunscreens. It blends easily onto my face and neck without leaving a white cast. The product doesn't have any fragrance that bother my nose. After application, my face looks semi-matte, but still has that healthy, radiant glow, not oily.
So, if you're at a drugstore, don't forget to check this product out! Remember, the most important step in preventing aging is to protect your face from the sun's damaging rays. It helps in preventing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your face.
