FoxTale CoverUp Matte Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

Share Post:

I received a couple of Foxtale products in a PR package last month and have finally got a chance to try out their mattifying sunscreen. I am pretty impressed with the texture of the sunscreen and have found it good for regular use. Let’s head straight to the Foxtale Sunscreen Review.

Brand Claims

This sunscreen has been formulated especially for people who prefer lightweight yet effective sunscreens. Formulated with Niacinamide and other powerful vitamins to protect your skin from UVA + UVB rays it prevents and reverses free radical damage. It absorbs within a minute, as opposed to other sunscreens and leaves skin feeling hydrated and protected. Daily use reveals even skin tone, fewer fine lines and healthier skin.

Price, Shelf life and Availability

675 INR for 50 gms with a shelf life of 2 years from date of manufacturing. Available on Amazon, Myntra and Flipkart as well as Foxtale website.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance

Foxtale Matte Sunscreen is housed in sleek pump-up packaging with a dispenser. Nonetheless, the packaging is easy to use and super travel-friendly. Sunscreen has a lotion consistency with a soft texture and gel-cream feel. The colour is white and has little fragrance. The fragrance is only noticeable once you dispense the sunscreen and fades away in a couple of moments after applying.

My experience with Foxtale Matte Sunscreen

Foxtale MatteSunscreen is a chemical sunscreen with the following chemical sunscreen filters

Ethylhexyl Triazone

Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine

Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate

The fact that it doesn’t contain any physical sunscreen agents and hence the sunscreen gives zero cast. This makes it apt for people who are worried about a white cast. This product is specially formulated to be a lightweight, effective and mattifying sunscreen.

The product is lotion-type in consistency and is very convenient to spread across and blend into the skin. Blending this sunscreen is super duper easy and one can even apply a sufficient quantity in a jiffy. Just be sure to use a sufficient amount of quantity as per the three-finger technique. Foxtale sunscreen feels hydrating to the skin without any heavy feel. I never felt the need to use any moisturizer before using this sunscreen, so I haven’t tested the sunscreen with a moisturizer. However, I did use a salicylic acid serum and it works just fine.

Even after using the three-finger technique, it neither felt heavy nor does it leave any greasy or oily residue on my oily acne-prone skin. It truly is a lightweight sunscreen in the Indian market. The sunscreen doesn’t irritate the eye area at all. I have used it on my upper eyelids too and there is no irritation whatsoever!

Finally speaking about the summers ahead, one may find the need to reapply the sunscreen whenever one sweats or comes in contact with water. I don’t experience any sweating when I am at home after applying this sunscreen. However, when I use a mask and head outside it does sweat a bit and needs reapplication. The reapplication part of the sunscreen is pretty convenient due to the texture. One can wash off the previous sunscreen and use it again or just reapply on previously applied sunscreen. Still, it doesn’t feel heavy after reapplication.

The sunscreen can be easily removed using an oil based cleanser or a good foaming cleanser. I use Foxtale cleanser and find that it feels good to use a foaming cleanser instead of double cleansing.
