Allies of Skin The One SPF 50 Invisible Sunscreen Gel Review

I am always excited to try out a new high protection SPF product and when Allies of Skin said they had created the One, I had to try it out. Here’s the lowdown on Allies of Skin The One SPF 50 Invisible Sunscreen Gel.

What is Allies of Skin The One?

My Review of Allies The One SPF 50

I think the keys things with this sunscreen is that it is completely transparent and invisible, and it actually feels much more like a makeup primer than it does a sun protection product. This is pretty important because it is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. Normally for that kind of performance, you get a much heavier and thicker consistency.

The texture is that of a silicone-based gel that melts into the skin effortlessly and is entirely invisible on the skin. There’s no white cast, no shine and actually it just looks like you have nothing on your skin at all.

When first applied, it does feel quite silicone-y but as you work it into the skin it really lightens up and once it has sunk in to the skin, it feels super light.

I think it is important to note that you should let this sink in before going in with your makeup. This is not only so that it has time to set on the skin, but I also think it’s important to let your SPF product bond with your skin for a good amount of time before you start using things around with your makeup. Regardless of the SPF you choose.

It works really well under makeup. Everything apples on top effortlessly without any issues. It’s great to know that I have all that extra skincare too, and you could in fact skip serums or moisturiser if you really wanted to streamline things.

I love that this is water resistant. This means it will be perfect for outdoor exercise and also if you’re on holiday and going in and out of the pool or sea. In fact, I think that I will be saving this for times when I might be outside and exercising, or swimming in the sea, and I really need that high performance water resistance.

The reason I say that I’d reserve it for this is that it’s not the cheapest sunscreen, and I have more affordable options (Garnier Vitamin C Daily UV Fluid SPF50 Glow Review) that I can use day to day. It is £43 for 50ml which although expensive, it is extremely high performance, so worth when you need high performance like the cases I have stated. This is one to have in your stash when you know you will be more vulnerable to sun exposure than usual.

I think it’s an absolutely brilliant product, and if you have the budget, it would be the perfect daily go-to to make sure your is looked after and protected.
