I was fortunate to receive some products last year 2016 from Radical Skincare.

I took this picture from my Instagram. For this post, I will review the sunscreen on the right.

Thoughts: I received this product at the best time when I was about to finish the sunscreen I was using at that time. For that reason, I was excited and intrigued to use this product and brand.
Here's the opening of the tube.
Here's a swatch of the product on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's a slight scent. It's so slight it's hardly noticeable but it's on the floral side. Secondly, majority of it I like the packaging. It's small, light-weight, and professional-looking. I like that it comes in a tube and the opening is at the bottom. I've tried sunscreen where the opening is at the top and it's a lot more work to squeeze the product out of the tube. I find this really easy to squeeze because of gravitation. The part I don't like and it's very minimal, it might not bother some people, is the top. I wish it was flat so when I use the product and lay on the table, it'll stand upside down. I have tendency to leave the tube open while spreading the sunscreen on my face. Then I squeeze more for my ears and neck. Since the top is round, it doesn't stand upside down. If I lay it on the side, some products slowly squeeze out. I have to close and re-open again. Other than that, I'm happy. It's sturdy and well-made. The top is also sturdy. It has a tight seal. You can feel a push when you close the top. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. I cannot see it break or open unless you are rough with the packaging. Not only that, it's small enough it'll be easy to carry with you. You can throw it in your bag, purse, and even your pocket. Third, the consistency is in-between light to medium. It's more a thin lotion than a cream. They recommend you shake the product before using. Since it's on the thin side, it easily spread and sink into the skin quickly. It'll be great for all skin types even dry skin individuals like myself. My skin loves this product. I like that it's absorbs into the skin instead of covering the skin. Since it's absorbed, there's no white cast and doesn't only protect the outside only. It protects outside and in, UVA and UVB. With that said, the skin feels smooth and soft. It's also not greasy and there's no stickiness whatsoever. In all honestly, it feels more like a moisturizer than sunscreen. Lastly and after using this product for months, I like that I'm protecting my skin from inside out. Honestly, I just need to be better. I'm not good at applying everyday. I have a tendency to wake up late and rushing to get to work. It's something I need to work on. Anyways, I recommend this sunscreen. It really is a good sunscreen!
