Non-sticky, light, safe & high Sun Protection


Do you usually experience sun allergy, heavy textured sun screens and uncomfortable feeling on your skin? Believe me, I'm the worst customer when it comes to sunbathing or seaside activities in general. Sun is the worst enemy for my pale, freckled skin even if I exclusively hide under pine trees when I'm on vacation. Sun damage is my worst fear and due to irresponsible sunbathing in the past, I've accumulated quite a few dark spots. Every now and then (but not as often as in the past) I hear a grandma or a grandpa saying to me I really need a stroll on the pure sun due to my pale, unhealthy skin. How ironic is that? With years, we finally started to talk about sun damage and sun cancer and I can't emphasise how important is sun protection to avoid health issues and ageing skin in the future years. Along with common sunburns I often experience sun allergy with incorrect selection of sun screens. Mix of sun, sweating, salt and chemicals irritate my skin and leave a bittersweet taste to my holiday experience. That's why I always stick with what I know best - sun screens that minimally or never irritate my skin along with other factors. Again, Eucerin is my long term partner in crime against sun allergy and heavy, sticky textures. Sun Creme-Gel and Transparent Sun Sprays were my go-to products for a couple of seasons. This year, Eucerin released Transparent Sun Spray Dry Touch in convenient spray bottle and ultra light texture for oily, acne skintypes. Even though I have generally normal to dry skin, I hate heavy textured sun screens that make me feel uncomfortable. If I take into consideration my previous experiences with lightweight textures from Eucerin, I haven't had any sunburns whatsoever.

Ali ponavadi na morju doživljate sončno alergijo, težke teksture sončnih krem in neprijeten občutek na koži? Verjemite mi ko rečem da sem najslabši gost na soncu. Sonce je največji sovražnik moje blede pegaste kože kljub temu, da se na morju ponavadi skrivam pod borovci. Sončne opekline in nevarnosti so moj strah ker sem imela v preteklosti veliko neprijetnih opeklin in posledično pridobila tudi nekaj temnih madežev in znamenj. Vsake toliko časa mi kakšna prijazna starejša gospa ali gospod svetuje sprehod po soncu zaradi blede, nezdrave kože. Ironično, da še danes bleda koža spominja na bolezen ali nezdravo telo kljub neštetim opozorilom o nevarnostih sončnih žarkov. Sama ne morem dovolj poudariti kako pomembna je sončna zaščita, da se izognete zdravstvenim težavam, kožnemu raku in prehitremu staranju kože. Jaz sem odličen primer za nezdrav vpliv sončnih žarkov iz preteklosti. Poleg opeklin velikokrat doživljam tudi alergijo zaradi kombinacije sonca, kemikalij, soli in potenja. Zato poizkušam vedno ostati pri preverjenih sončnih kremah, ki minimalno dražijo kožo. Kot sem že neštetokrat omenila, z Eucerinom se sedaj zvesto bojujem proti sončni alergiji in težkim, zadušljivim teksturam. Sun prozoren sprej in Sun gel sta stalnica že iz prejšnjih sezon, letos pa je Eucerin dodal v mojo zbirko še Sun Dry Touch transparentni sprej ZF 50+. Sprej je v embalaži aerosola, ki omogoča enostavno nanašanje in ultra lahko teksturo, primerno za vse tipe aknaste in mastne kože. Čeprav imam sama normalno/suho kožo po telesu, sovražim zadušljive kreme zaradi katerih se počutim neprijetno in lepljivo. Če povežem izkušnje iz prejšnjih sezon z Eucerinom, nisem imela opeklin že lep čas, hkrati pa se na plaži ne bleščim kot ''belo čudo'' zaradi belih sledi zastarelih sončnih krem.


Transparent Sun Spray Dry Touch SPF 50 defends from UVA and UVB sun rays. It's waterproof, non-sticky and extremely light in texture. You can easily apply it with a spray pump on the go. Sun screen doesn't transfer evenly on the skin as a mist but instead, it comes out in small ''piles'' for rubbing it into the skin afterwards. Product itself is pretty liquidy, slightly yellow tinted and smells alcoholy with application. You need to rub it across your skin quite fast as it sinks into the skin in terms of seconds. It leaves non-sticky feeling, almost as if you're not wearing any sun screen. It's great for any outside activities when you're sweating or avoiding sun screen due to heavy, suffocating feeling. The downside is alcohol as it is the main ingredient for making the texture lightweight and non-sticky. Do consider that if you're choosy about ingredients. I personally don't have a problem with it. Sensitive skin should also tolerate this product as it is dermatologically tested. It contains antioxidant Licochalcon A known for anticancer, antibacterial and antiviral properties as it protects skin cells against free radicals damage.

Sun Dry Touch transparentni sprej ZF 50+ ščiti pred UVA in UVB žarki. Je vodoodporen, nelepljiv in zelo lahkoten. Z enostavnim nanosom je odličen pri športu in na poti. Sama krema se ne nanaša kot sprej ampak prihaja iz tube v ''otočkih'' tekočinaste kreme. Tako je treba zaščito hitro razmazati z rokami saj se vpije v času sekund. Tekočina je prozorna, malce rumenkasta in diši po alkoholu. Pusti nelepljiv občutek, se ne masti in ne prenaša po oblačilih. Sprej je odličen za zunanje aktivnosti kjer se veliko potite. Zadušljiv občutek na koži je tako preteklost. Edina negativna stran je ogromna količina alkohola ki sicer omogoča lahko, hitro vpijajočo teksturo. Če se alkohola kot sestavine izogibate, potem vzemite to v razmislek. Sama sicer nimam problemov s to sestavino, hkrati pa je po navedbah znamke sprej primeren za občutljiv tip kože. Produkt je tudi dermatološko testiran. Vsebuje Licochalcon A, antioksidant, ki je poznan po anti-virusnem, antibakterijskem, anti-kancerogenem delovanju saj zaščiti globlje plasti kože pred prostimi radikali.


Considering light texture, I'm pleased with the product. It's not sticky, doesn't transfer and protects my skin against UVA and UVB sun rays. Now the big test is always at the seaside so I'll update you on the durability of the actual amount (200 ml) and personal experience with any possible sun allergies. Using a Transparent Sun Spray in the past, it's not likely that Eucerin sun screens would irritate my pale skin. Transparent Sun Spray Dry Touch usually retails between 20-16€. You can find Eucerin on FeelUnique, Boots. Stay safe and get yourself a new sun protector each year/season!

Če vzamem v razmislek samo teksturo in učinkovitost, sem z izdelkom zadovoljna. Sprej ni lepljiv, se ne pozna na oblačilih in učinkovito ščiti pred žarki. Preizkusila sem ga že pri zunanjih aktivnostih, pravi test pa šele prihaja na dopustu. V prihodnosti Vas bom obvestila in posodobila opis o sami količini spreja (vsebuje 200 ml) in osebni izkušnji s sončno alergijo. Če sklepam da nisem imela problemov s podobnim Transparentnim Sun sprejem v preteklosti, upam, da tudi Sun Dry Touch sprej ne bo dodatno dražil moje blede kože. Sun Dry Touch transparentni sprej ZF 50+ se ponavadi prodaja za okoli 20-16€, odvisno od same sezone. Trenutno je v akciji za okoli 16€ po lekarnah v Sloveniji in na Lekarnarju.
