I tried several Levrana sera that I liked working. When I visited the store, I heard how shoppers spoke well about sunscreens.
Therefore, when my Sanskrin ran out, I bought Levrana 50 SPF Sun Cream Calendula (Levrana Calendula Sunscreen. SPF factor 50 ).
The cream is produced in St. Petersburg, Russia,
Shelf life after opening : 3 months.
A small amount of cream is enough for the whole face. I did not use it every day, only on weekends or in the countryside, on the beach, then I will explain why.
For 3 months I was not able to finish the product, so despite the manufacturer's recommendation, I continued to use it. Product specifications have not changed.
Price: 785 rub.
Place of purchase : organic cosmetics store.
Use Period : Summer - Autumn
Packing : tall, round tube made of taupe cardboard,
It’s better not to press hard on the tube, because You can get too much cream; the spout will gush.
Packaging well tolerates transportation, the cream is used to the end.
Dispenser : short, wide, aluminum nozzle, does not clog.
Having squeezed out a little cream, it is better to hold it with your finger, otherwise there will be a story "Cook the pot!"
Often there is too much cream, the spout and lid are smeared in it, the packaging looks untidy, you need to wipe it, otherwise dust and dirt will settle on it, you get a greasy mess.
Color: pure, dense white.
Smell: light, discreet, almost imperceptible, if you sniff, you can feel the chemical creamy notes with an admixture of menthol and herbs. The fragrance does not linger on the skin
Texture: at first glance, light, creamy, uniform, non-flowing.
Natural sun protection for the whole family, including the smallest. SPF factor 50. The highest sun protection factor in the Levrana range of natural cosmetics. Levrana has developed a unique sunscreen, our cosmetics are absolutely safe. Due to its natural composition, our sunscreen is suitable for children (0+). As a sunscreen ingredient, we use physical filters. Unlike harmful organic filters, our filters are not absorbed into the skin, remaining on the surface, thereby creating a safe sun screen. Our sunscreen is water resistant as well as very economical.
Remember! Recommended hours for sunbathing: from 8-00 to 11-00 and from 16-00 to sunset. Avoid direct contact with the sun from 11-00 to 16-00, this is the most active phase of exposure to sunlight on the skin and can lead to burns. When applied to the skin, the cream leaves a whitish mark. The better the distribution on the skin, the less white the trace. For a better distribution on the skin, apply the cream pointwise. The cream is washed off quite well by our natural handmade soap, liquid soap or shower gel.
Aqua, Zinc Oxide (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Ricinoleate (and) Isoamyl Laurate (and) Isoamyl Cocoate (and) Prunus amygdalus Dulcis Oil (zinc filter), Aqua (spring water), Leen seed oil ( linseed oil) Calendula officinalis floral water (calendula hydrolyte), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil (rosehip oil), Hydrogenated starch hydrolysate (vegetable sorbitol), Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil (sesame oil), Sodium Chloride (sea salt), Benzyl Alcohol (benzyl alcohol ), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Melaleuca alternifolia oil (tea tree essential oil), Lavandula Angustifolia flower oil (lavender essential oil), Macleya microcarpa (Maxim.) Fedde. Extract (Macleia extract), Juglans Regia Leaf Extract (walnut extract), Rosa cinnamomea L. Extract (rosehip extract), Chamomilla Recutita Extract (chamomile extract), Bidens tripartita extract (succession extract).
My skin: in summer - normal, problematic, sensitive, with dry areas, prone to inflammation, pores quickly clog, allergic. In the cold period, the skin is drier.
I applied the cream to the skin of my face and neck, just to bare protonized skin and to a moisturizer.
The cream needs to be well absorbed for about 20 minutes. Not everyone has so much time in the morning, so I only use the product on weekends. The product is absorbed for 20-30 minutes, the face is sticky, oily, when you touch the skin, a noticeable white mark remains on the finger. It is better to distribute the cream with your hands, because they are easier to wash.
After 30 minutes of shrinkage of the cream, you get a white canvas (in the literal sense of this phrase), which must be transformed, because no one wants to leave the house with a white face. I apply cream blush and bronzer over the product, highlighting the relief of the face.
I never used a bronzer, because I have a thin, rather cheeky face, with thin cheeks that look so good. But, starting to use the cream, I realized that without a bronzer, my face will be like a ghost. I fix makeup with loose powder.
It is worth noting that decorative cosmetics lays well on the cream, does not roll.
Even after all the manipulations, my face looks white, so I began to add a few drops of tone or BB cream to the cream to give it a color. Having well mixed the cream and the tone on the hand, I transferred it to the skin. The complexion began to look livelier, more human, with a beige tone.
During the day, the skin becomes oily as usual, the shine appears after 3-4 hours, but is not strong. True, I was not in the open sun or sunshine.
On the beach, the cream should also be distributed carefully and carefully, looking in the mirror.
The cream must be thoroughly washed off. First I use micellar water, then oil rinse, then hydrophilic oil and Japanese foam for washing.
You ask: “Why so many manipulations?” Answer: “The cream strongly clogs the pores, poorly washed from the skin.”
Even after multi-stage washing, I still have skin areas on which inflammation forms the next day. Abscesses appear precisely from sunscreen, verified empirically.
During the use of the tan, pigment spots did not appear on my skin, the skin did not darken, did not tan. But I was in the shade, wore sunglasses and a hat, my body was covered as much as possible with clothes.
The cream was used in urban and suburban north-western weather conditions, I did not take the product on vacation, in the tropics, to the south.
The skin under the cream does not choke, does not sweat. The product does not flow during the day, does not dry the skin.
- The cream protects the skin from sunburn, the appearance of pigmentation.
For the sake of justice, it is worth noting that almost all sunscreens clog my pores, because many of them contain silicones, mineral oils.
Repeat purchase : no
Not because the cream is bad, just for me its disadvantages outweigh the advantages.
Cream is not for the city, more for the beach.
If you compare it with Clarins SPF 50 sunscreen milk or Biore SPF 50 sun creams, Levrana loses because of the heavy, poorly distributing, long absorbing, white base and protection only from UVA rays.
My rating: 5.5 out of 10 points.
It is more suitable for the body and for children because thanks to the white color, it is clear where the product is applied. The cream protects from the sun and tan.
If there was a sampler in the store and I would have complete information about the product, I would definitely not buy it, because the cream does not fit my requirements. But in general, the product performs its functions with dignity, when buying, you need to appropriately evaluate its features and its purpose of use.
For my purposes, the cream did not adapt well.
Many people, especially mothers with children, love the product.
Levrana has many interesting products, for example:
- serum with caffeine,
- serum with vitamin C
