I’ve used a handful of Biossance products over the years (cleansing oil, rose oil, and peptide serum) and have no issues, really I have enjoyed the brand. I received this sunscreen as part of a set for Christmas and was excited to use it because I had in fact used it before in 2021 and enjoyed it. I’m not sure what changed but the day I used this, I had a TERRIBLE reaction—and I typically do not have reactive skin so I was shocked. Redness, hives, swelling on my eyelids and under eyes, and painful itching. The itching was so bad I went to the emergency department to get prescription corticosteroid treatment because I was so desperate to relieve the discomfort of this rash. I’ve deduced the sunscreen caused this reaction as it’s the only new product I used in my routine and my reaction is limited to the face/neck (the only place the sunscreen was used). It’s taken nearly a week to recover from these awful symptoms, cost me $$ in unexpected medical bills, and now I’m going to be on a new journey to heal my usually calm skin. Absolutely not worth it. I hope Biossance looks into the formula as it seems others have also had similar experiences. If you do buy, please patch test before putting on your face! Very disappointed with this product and exhausted from dealing with the discomfort of this experience.
