Dr. Ceuracle Pro balance biotic clear up sun review I Probiotic sunscreen?

Sunscreen with built-in probiotics?  Heck yea!  I’ve been really loving probiotic skincare lately.  Even before it was labeled as “probiotic”, fermented skincare was the predecessor, both working amazingly for my dry skin type. Does probiotic skincare work though?  In short, yes it does! I find probiotics to maintain, brighten, soften and nourish my skin all at the same time. I recently fell in love with Dr. Ceuracle’s kombucha essence, so their sunscreen definitely piqued my interest.  I do know this sunscreen has a mattifying finish, however, I’m hoping the probiotic part of the formula could give me some sort of hydration.

Product packaging:
Dr. Ceuracle pro balance biotics clear up sunscreen comes in a short and stubby tube that is easy to pocket and travel around with.  The size is a little bigger than my whole hand.  Granted, I do have somewhat small hands, so take it with a grain of salt haha.

To dispense the product, twist off the cap and dispense away!

Texture, Finish, white cast?:
The texture at first seems lightweight until you start to rub it into your skin.  Once you massage it into your skin, it gets a little thicker like a traditional sunscreen you would find in an American drugstore.  After about 30 seconds, the sunscreen settles and gives your skin a slightly dewy finish.

The thickness of the texture isn’t pasty and melts into the skin after a couple rounds of blending.

It does leave a bit of a white cast, however, it is workable if you are on the lighter skin tone spectrum.  I personally wouldn’t recommend this to those with medium to dark skin tones as it might make you look ashy.  Even though there is a slight dewy glow to the skin, the sunscreen dries down to a matte/ velvet finish. 

I personally found this sunscreen to be too drying for my already dry skin, unfortunately. It was definitely my wishful thinking, hoping a mattifying sunscreen could work for my skin type.

There is a strong scent of rosemary and possibly tea tree oil?  Smell-o-scale: 7/10 in terms of how strong the scent is and it does fade after application.  I personally find the scent to be quite soothing, however, those of you who like to bring sunscreen up to your eye area might want to be wary.

-light natural glow
-mix of chemical and physical filters

-drying for my skin type
-slight white cast that may not work with those with darker skin tones

Overall thoughts:
This actually isn’t a half-bad sunscreen for those of you who want a mattifying or oil-controlling sunscreen.  I personally found the finish to suck any hydration out of my already dry skin, which wasn’t a fun experience.  The white cast wasn’t a big deal with my skin tone, however, you’ll have to make sure to massage it into your skin very well, and definitely don’t wear this sunscreen if you are going to get photographed with flash.  Overall this isn’t bad and I’d recommend it for those with normal to oily skin types.
