Is Heliocare Sunscreen Good?
Heliocare sunscreens can be categorised into 4 groups depending on your preferences. Their range consists of the Heliocare 360, Advanced, Color and Ultra line.
Just as the name implies, the Heliocare 360 range offers high-level broad spectrum protection against various UV rays. It is great for broad spectrum protection, and comes in a variety of different formulations ranging from oil-free, tinted, emulsion and more. This enables customisation based on your skin type.
For example, Heliocare 360 Gel Oil-Free SPF50 is suitable for combination to oily skin types. If you prefer a sunscreen with an added moisture boost that is fast-absorbing, the Heliocare Advanced range would be perfect for you. The Heliocare Color line suits people who are looking for a little tint to even out their skin tone for a my-skin-but-better look. Heliocare 360 Color Gel Oil-Free would be a good option for this, especially if you plan on using it as a base prior to makeup application.
Overall, a Heliocare sunscreen is sure not to steer you wrong. For someone just looking for a basic lightweight, effective sunscreen, Heliocare 360 would be our top pick for you.
Is Heliocare a Chemical or Mineral?
The majority of Heliocare products (except Heliocare 360 Mineral Tolerance Fluid), contain a combination of mineral and non-mineral filters. A mixture of these two filters enables the highest level of protection against UV rays.
If you have sensitivity issues or are looking for products with mineral only filters, try the Heliocare 360 Mineral Tolerance Fluid SPF50.
Can You Wear Heliocare Under Makeup?
It is recommended that you wear Heliocare sunscreen prior to any makeup application, then proceed to reapply throughout the day every 2 hours.
Heliocare understand that reapplying sunscreen can seem daunting and is a hassle for most, especially if you already have a face of makeup. They have an Invisible Spray under the Heliocare 360 range, which is a sunscreen face mist that is water resistant and sand resistant. This makes it perfect for application especially if you are on the go, or if you are at the beach.
