How to use
Shake well before use. Apply lotion liberally, allow to absorb at least 20 minutes before sun exposure.
Our bottles are a little different to the traditional pump/straw bottles. They use an air pump which uses air pressure to dispense the sunscreen. There are 2 small holes on the bottom of the bottle, if you hold your finger over these holes and pump - this will build up pressure inside the bottle.
Lotion, Lightweight, Non-greasy
Ideal for use under makeup pair SPF Skin Shield with Liquid Mineral Foundation for a flawless finish. Reapply every 2 hours and more frequently when swimming, exercising or wiping your face. This product is not water-resistant, Be sun smart and avoid excessive UV exposure.

This sunscreen is very light and easy to wear, doesn't feel greasy.
I also really like the shape and size of the bottle and keep one in my car without taking up too much room.
It does have a bit of a strange smell at first but it's only momentary.

Your esmi Skin Shield scent is a SPF30 facial sunscreen with no added fragrance or essential oils, making it suitable for really sensitive and reactive skin. Leaving a softer imprint on your body and our ocean.
Your esmi Skin Shield is Vegan and reef safe, to follow esmi ethics and beliefs there is not a sunscreen that meets this criteria that is both Vegan and reef safe.
We have included Carrot root oil in your Skin Shield. This is a natural ingredient and as such will reduce in intensity over time and after exposure to air. Don't worry it will still deliver its function.
The esmi Skin Shield will not leave your skin oily. If you have an oily skin you can opt to use the Skin Shield as a moisturiser. Always keeping an eye on your skin to ensure you are feeding it enough moisture for which we can recommend some lighter facial oils/skin mylcks suited to oily skin.
