Not too long ago I read Mateja's review for the Sun Dance Tinted Sun Fluid but when I went to look for it in the shop they were all sold out, so I decided to pick up the Mattifying one instead. Throughout the year I tend to use foundations with added SPF, but in the summer I feel like they don't protect the skin well enough, especially because I use chemical exfoliants several times a week. What sold me was the mattifying claim and SPF 30.
Last summer I was using the Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defence Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion, but since I've recently run out and the price in Europe is a bit higher that I'm willing to pay I decided to get something more affordable. The Sun Dance Sun Fluid comes in a sleek and travel friendly orange tube and has 50 ml of product inside. The fluid has a runny texture, lightweight consistency and when you apply the sufficient amount does give a slight white cast to the skin. It doesn't feel drying or tacky, but the mattifying claim is somewhat misleading - compared to a regular sunscreen it's definitely not as oily or greasy, but by no means is this a product offering a mattifying effect. I tried using it with mattifying primers and I still end up with really shiny dewy skin. Mattifying foundations work best with it, and I always dust some setting powder over as well. It works better on days when I don't wear anything over it, except some powder, or when I apply it over serum and skipping moisturizer.
For such an affordable product I'd say it's worth giving a try, especially if you're only going to use it on holidays when you don't tend to wear (much) make up. Also keep an eye out for the ingredients (octocrylene, alcohol denat) and strong sun screen scent, in case you're sensitive to either. You can get it at DM stores.
