Some By Mi Truecica Mineral 100 Suncream Review

Back in my teens, I used to loathe wearing sunscreen on my face because it made my face look all too white plus it clogged my oily, acne-ridden skin. Nowadays, there are numerous sunscreens that promise the absence of a white cast as well as having no pore-clogging shenanigans involved. However, Some By Mi's Truecica Mineral 100 Suncream is the first sunscreen that I have ever tried that promises effective banishment of pimples. That's right, not only does this sunscreen not clog the pores, but it also keeps pimples away.
I've heard all about how good Some By Mi is but it's my first time trying a product of theirs. Unsurprisingly, it did not disappoint.

Truecica Mineral 100 Suncream is free from these 20 potentially harmful ingredients:
Benzophenone-3, Benzophenone-4, Benzophenone-8, Sorbic Acid, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methyl Paraben, Ethyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Isopropyl Paraben, Butyl Paraben, Isobutyl Paraben, P-Hydroxy Benzoic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Triclosan, Benzalkonium Chloride, Benzethonium Chloride, Benzoic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, and Benzyl Alcohol. 

True to its promises, the Some By Mi Truecica Mineral 100 Suncream is light on the skin, easy to apply and is quickly absorbed by it. If I didn’t know any better, I would think that I'm just wearing another lightweight cream and not sunscreen because its features are far from the usual sunscreen. The term “suncream” is definitely a good choice of words to describe this wonder of a sunscreen.

When I first started using this sunscreen, I had a small pimple and this sunscreen didn't aggravate it, it was soon gone after 2 days. It’s definitely the perfect daily sunscreen for my oily, acne-prone skin.

Sensitive skin
It's great for sensitive skin and if you have maskne or acne from wearing face masks, try incorporating this sunscreen in your skincare routine. You might want to check out my skincare guide to treating and preventing maskne.

Watch the video to see how smooth it is to apply and how it has no white cast.

I bought this sunscreen for P700 at Althea.

Would I Get It Again?
I would love to repurchase the Some By Mi Truecica Mineral 100 Suncream again but truthfully, it's a bit above my usual budget. If it ever goes on sale, I would immediately jump in at the chance to grab one (or two). As for buying it at its regular price, I would have to consider how long it would last. Especially since my go-to sunscreen, the Petal Velvet Sunaway, is currently priced at only P370.
