Sonage comes in!Sunscreen is an year-round beauty staple but SPF should be your BFF, especially during the summer months. For me, the sun-drenched days of summer call for a does-everything moisturizer with SPF that sinks in instantly. And it’s even better if there are no harmful chemicals to worry about! That’s where Presage Moisturizer SPF 15 from the facialist-approved skincare brand
A luxurious two-in-one day creme with a powerful mineral based SPF, it’s designed to leave your skin hydrated and protected with one easy application. Presage’s mineral-based sunscreen ingredients Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide scatter and reflect broad spectrum UVA/UVB rays (versus increasingly controversial synthetic, oil based actives that are absorbed by the bloodstream and may contribute to the risk of some forms of cancer). Presage is a safe sunscreen, leaving nothing behind but a grease-free radiant glow.

There’s a lot to love about this daytime moisturizer with SPF! First, it contains gentle mineral sunscreen actives (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) for full spectrum UVA/UVB protection, which puts my sun-paranoid mind at ease. Twice as nice, the nourishing natural formula infused with all the good-for-your-skin ingredients listed above leaves my dry skin hydrated and protected with one easy application. Two vital skincare steps merged into one; who can’t appreciate that?
Paraben and phthalate free, Presage relies on natural preservatives to stay fresh and absorbs into the skin almost instantly. It leaves my face moisturized (not at all sticky or greasy), has a lightweight feel and blends into the skin with a shine free semi-matte finish. Also, the formula doesn’t leave any unwanted white cast on the skin that’s typically the case with most mineral sunscreens.
This day creme has been working well for my normal to dry skin and doesn’t leave me shiny by the end of the day. That said, if your skin is more on the oily side and you prefer something that also helps with controlling excess oil/shine, this creme may not be the best pick for you as it’s not oil-free.
As for the drawbacks of this product, the first is jar packaging…you guys know I’ve never been a fan of jars when it comes to skincare. Secondly, the SPF factor is lower than I’d like. I prefer at least SPF 30, especially for summer.
Overall, I think Sonäge’s Presage Moisturizer SPF15 is a great product that combines effective sun protection and anti-aging benefits with an elegant texture and feel. I find it just perfect for everyday use! I’d recommend this product for anyone with sensitive or normal to dry/combination who is looking for a natural sunscreen to keep their face protected and moisturized all day.
