Hi people! Summers are on full-fledged in my city and there’s no respite! And I cannot emphasize enough on the use of sunscreens. If you’re going out of your house, it is so important to carry one in your bag. And for those who are staying indoors, please don’t compromise on sunscreens. At least you have access to one in your vanity while at home, so make good use of it. Else all your skincare attempts are going to go in vain.
With my recent desire to use products with no nasties, I’ve been coming across several wonderful Indie brands. One such discovery is ENN. Their all-black packaging actually gives me “LUSH”-like feels, the reason I picked up quite a few of their products. And you know my love for LUSH (already reviewd LUSH Herbalism and LUSH Sleepy). One of the products I picked up was their tinted sunscreen with SPF 40. I’ve been using it religiously over the past 4 months, a decent time to test out a product.
About the Product:
Enn’s UV Film Tinted Sun Protection is a high protecting and nourishing facial sunscreen made of natural ingredients like avocado oil, wheat germ oil. It embraces a fresh & non-greasy mineral based sun protection formula that gets absorbed swiftly into skin. Brimming with the natural goodness of SPF 40, it protects the skin against UVA and UVB harmful rays of the sun.

My Experience with ENN UV-Film Tinted Sun Protection SPF 40:
The packaging of this sunscreen is simply superb. Somehow all their products remind me of LUSH. The 30ml bottle looks premium and chic. The base and cap are in matte black finish and the container is transparent with ENN’s black label. You can see the tinted sunscreen from outside. The bottle itself is extremely lightweight, and the lid closes with a click most perfectly – making it amazingly travel-friendly. Moreover the pump dispenser is just as convenient as ever, a 10/5 for the packaging!
The consistency of the product is creamy yet lightweight. It has quite a noticeable fragrance, but it actually dissipates in a while after application. The ENN UV-Film Tinted Sun Protection SPF 40 absorbs in the skin super fast, and deeply hydrates. The best part, it does not leave behind any tacky or sticky after-feel. That’s why it can be used by all skin types throughout the year round. What more, this product actually gives such a dewy, healthy finish to the skin! Additionally with the high sun protection factor, it is great for tropical weathers.
As for the tinted aspect, it actually settles to a very sheer finish. It has no coverage like a makeup product, and does not leave any white cast. However I have noticed it helps blur very very fine lines, giving a smoother appearance to the skin. It does not clog pores, hence a perfect fit for my acne-prone skin. I have some really large pores to consider and keep clean, so non-comedogenic products are saviors!
However, the product is a bit pricey for the quantity. But again, I need only a small quantity of this, so it will last me at least 6 months, or even more.
A little on the ingredients:
An impressive ingredient in this product is pomegranate oil. Not only is it hydrating and has antibacterial properties, but also addition of pomegranate oil in any sunscreen enhances efficacy of its UV protection by almost 20%!
It is a physical sunscreen so it deflects harmful radiations of the sun by sitting on top of your skin. This has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, and hence a mineral sunscreen.
Citric acid helps regenerate new cells and avocado oil is a source of Vitamin E, and is also a fabulous nourishing ingredient.
The ENN UV-Film Tinted Sun Protection also has peach essential oil, which is a great moisturizing agent and amazing for sensitive skin. No wonder why this product worked out for me!
The Final Verdict:
ENN UV-Film Tinted Sun Protection SPF 40 is a wonderful sunscreen for any skin type. However you just need to be sure you are not allergic to any of its ingredients. I’d say don’t have high expectations from the tint in the product, because it only helps to plump up a few very fine lines, and even out skin tone to some extent. I love the fact that it finishes sheer on the skin and does not leave any white cast. Moreover, I also love how hydrating it is on the skin and that it does not clog pores. The dewy finish particularly, was a surprise factor! Not to mention the packaging is one of the best in the market: compact, convenient, classy and travel-friendly. Totally recommend you to get this sunscreen!
