I’m fairly new to the Rovectin skincare line but I’ve heard good things about it. Not only do I admire how the company began (you can read all about it here), I also love how they’ve made it their mission to help us feel comfortable in our own skin

They also rely on science to come up with gentle, hypoallergenic formulas that restore skin from within. 

Their Skin Essentials Aqua Soothing UV Protector makes a lot of big promises. And as I’m all about sun protection not only when we’re in the middle of this scorching hot summer but all year round, I was raring to try it out. Let’s see if it delivers.

What does Rovectin sunscreen promise to do?

Rovectin Sunscreen - Rovectin Skin Essentials Aqua Soothing UV Protector

When we think sunscreen, we usually just think sun protection. And this product does that. However, it goes the extra mile by also promising to:

  • Leave skin hydrated
  • Brighten the skin 
  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and
  • Form a barrier on the skin to protect it from fine dust and other harmful pollutants in the environment through their patented anti-pollution ingredient Pollustop®

All this while not causing any skin irritations.

This sunscreen is recommended for all skin types and, according to Rovectin, is a safe product to use even for kids. It’s free from parabens, mineral oils, artificial fragrance and colours, and steroids.

Rovectin sunscreen active ingredients

Since it’s a physical sunscreen (read all about physical vs. chemical sunscreens here), it’s formulated with mineral filters Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide.

It also has:

  • Trehalose Extract for its moisturizing properties
  • Niacinamide for skin brightening, and
  • Centella Asiatica Extract to soothe skin

Find the full ingredient list below:

Water, Cyclohexasiloxane, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Propanediol, Polyglyceryl-3 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Dibutyl Adipate, Niacinamide, Caprylyl Methicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Magnesium Sulfate, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Trehalose, Aluminum Hydroxide, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Stearic Acid, Prunus Amygdalus Amara (Bitter Almond) Kernel Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Leaf Extract, Octyldodecanol, Adenosine, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Fructooligosaccharides, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Pullulan, Cardiospermum Halicacabum Flower/Leaf/Vine Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Biosaccharide Gum-4, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Undecane, Tridecane, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil

How I use this sunscreen

I use this product as the last step in my daily morning skincare routine, after moisturizing. I use about half a teaspoon of product and spread it on my face, ears and neck.

You can also use it on your body (e.g. arms and legs or anywhere else exposed to the sun) but I didn’t try that (yet).

Other things to know about this product

  • Fragrance. I always smell products out of the packaging so I thought this was fragrance-free. However, upon application, there is a subtle, floral smell that quickly goes away as the product gets absorbed.
  • Texture and Consistency. The product is creamier than other sunscreens I’ve tried and applies smoothly on skin. I didn’t have problems spreading it. It’s also very light and absorbs quickly.
  • Packaging. Rovectin sunscreen is available in a 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz. tube. I’d consider the aesthetic clean and minimalistic (the whole Rovectin line is) though my spouse said it looked very clinical and medicinal, like something you’d get from the dermatologist. What do you think?

What I like about Rovectin Skin Essentials Aqua Soothing UV Protector

Rovectin Skin Essentials Aqua Soothing UV Protector has a lot of great things going for it.

  • Lightweight. First, it’s lightweight. After my skin has absorbed it, it’s as if it’s not there.
  • Great under make-up. It goes well under make-up. I only put very light make-up on though; I can’t say for sure how it will play with heavier foundations.
  • Luxurious and creamy. I love the texture of this sunscreen. It’s so luxurious to apply and very creamy. It doesn’t feel like you’re putting sunscreen on; it feels more like a light moisturizer.
  • Non-greasy. Regardless of how creamy it feels upon application, my skin never felt heavy or greasy even on a very hot humid day (I’m combination-oily in the warmer months).
  • Good for sensitive skin. I’ve been using this for a while and my skin is irritation-free. I have semi-sensitive skin and I appreciate how hypoallergenic products are actually hypoallergenic! 

I don’t feel especially hydrated or deeply moisturized on days when I use it though. However, I don’t feel flaky or dry either. 

And for now, I can only report on how this product delivers as a sunscreen. It would take more time to see if it brightens my complexion or helps improve my fine lines.

I will update this review as soon as I know!

What I don’t like about it

  • Fragrance. Although it’s very subtle, fragrance is always a negative for me. I just believe that skincare products don’t need it. Rovectin says it’s free from artificial fragrance though so that’s something.
  • White cast. This product leaves a slight white cast on my tan skin upon application. It goes away after several minutes as the product is absorbed but it’s something to keep in mind. It might appear or behave differently on other skin tones.

Do I recommend Rovectin sunscreen?

In a rating scale of 1 to 5 — 5 being awesome — this product is a high 4 for me. I’m partial to fragrance-free products but considering all the other benefits my skin is getting, it’s a minor detail I can definitely live with.

And the white cast goes away so that’s something I can overlook too. 

Lightweight, creamy, absorbs quickly, good for sensitive skin. Try it!
