I have talked about Suntegrity sunscreens before, in 2016 <here> and when I received this to try, I already had this preconceived notion that it’ll be heavy and greasy. At the back of my mind, I thought that my skin got a little drier since then, so maybe I’ll like it better. The Suntegrity Impeccable Skin is marketed as a broad spectrum (SPF30) tinted sunscreen. It is 56.7g (2oz) and priced at RM299. I hear some gasps. Yes, that’s my reaction too.
The Suntegrity Impeccable Skin gives a sheer to medium coverage, and it does not have any oils, parabens or silicones. It has Vitamins C and E for antioxidant protection, and peptides and hyaluronic acid to make skin look smoother and more hydrated. With only SPF30 to offer, I treat this more as a tinted base. I always use an SPF50 as the last step of my skincare and this is no different. I think this formula is quite lightweight, much more comfortable than its predecessors, and I can even wear it without any powder. I use one full pump to cover my entire face, and for me, it’s enough to cover any redness. I don’t mind if some of my pigmentation peeks through.
The packaging certainly reminds me of It Cosmetics CC Cream, so I will naturally compare them both. Sometimes I get confused. Is this Suntegrity Impeccable Skin essentially a sunscreen but with a tint? Then is the It Cosmetics CC Cream essentially a foundation, with added protection? What difference does it make? If anyone of you could help clarify to me, I’d appreciate it. For now, let’s focus on Suntegrity Impeccable Skin. The shade I have is Ivory, and it matches me just fine. When I’m wearing this tinted sunscreen, I notice my skin looks better as the day goes by. It actually makes me look healthy and glowy the whole day. Given, I still need to add some concealer to hide my dark circles, but other than that, this tinted sunscreen makes my skin look good.
Here is what my skin looks like with and without the Suntegrity Impeccable Skin. That’s half a pump used on your left side of my face. I have nothing else on. You’d notice the redness is covered, and my skin looks a little smoother somehow. There’s also a white cast (I took this photo immediately after I applied it), which actually disappears after a few minutes. Also, as you can see, my face does not look oily, which I initially thought it would.
I want to tell you I like it, because I really do. But would I tell you to buy it? I can’t tell you to, when I probably won’t buy it myself. The main reason is the price. For RM299, I could actually buy an SPF 50 sunscreen AND a foundation. I think it’s a decent product. Heck, I’ve been reaching for it, because I really like the finish. The marketed price point however, will deter many from trying it. If you have very sensitive skin that’s allergic to fragrance, mineral oils, silicones and/or parabens, then this is worth a try.

You can purchase this online at TNS SkinLab website or just hop into their brick and mortar to try it out. If price is not your concern, I’d say, get it! When I’m in a rush, and out just for a short school run, I wear this without a sunscreen underneath. Ssshhh… don’t tell anyone else. I only do that when I’m late 🙂
