Product Review: Mesoestetic Dermatological Sun Protection SPF50+

Having combination skin prone to breakouts finding a sunscreen for my face can be a bit of a challenge as often they simply make my skin break out. I have read countless times that the experts say that is technically not possible, but nevertheless, sunscreens often make my skin congested and break out very quickly. The quest for the perfect sunscreen for my face continues, especially now that spring has just started. Here are my thoughts on the *Mesoestetic’s Dermatological Sun Protection SPF 50+;

What They Say:
"A sunblock with a new generation physical filter for high level protection against UV radiation. Working to inhibit the formation of free radicals in the skin, Mesoestetic Dermatological Sun Protection helps to protect skin against photoageing and sunburn. This lightweight, oil-free, broad-spectrum sunscreen can be used for all skin types for daily use and is ideal to apply after in clinic treatments."

RRP: $69 (50ml) – available from Selected Salons, AdvancedCosmeceuticals, Facial Company

What I Say:
I have never previously heard of the brand Mesoestetic, but I am always excited to be trying out new brands. Mesoestetic is a Spanish brand, with the products also being made in Spain.

I have previously tried sunscreens for oily skins, but still I have felt that they have been way too greasy for my skin, so I honestly didn’t expect much of this Sun Protection cream from Mesoestetic. And how wrong I was!

The Mesoestetic’s Dermatological Sun Protection is oil free and has a SPF 50+, with broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB radiation.

The cream has a lovely subtle scent, and is thick, but absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and moisturised, but without any greasy or sticky feeling.

I hadn’t expected the cream to be tinted, so I was surprised to see that the actual cream is slightly tinted, but in a very pale colour that I thought surely would be way too pale for my neutral toned skin. But it isn’t, it is perfect. And once absorbed into the skin, it is actually not showing that it is tinted, yet it is still evening out my skin tone, helping to cover slight redness on my cheeks and around the nose, as well tone down dark circles under my eyes, although it still doesn’t cover darker imperfections. It simply leaves my skin looking nicer, more even toned, and with a matte look – that again surprisingly stays that all day.

The tinted cream

The cream blended - difficult to see on the photo,
but it does even out the skin tone considerably!

The cream comes in a simple white tube with a flip lid. As decent amount of sunscreen is always required to get the full benefit of the SPF50+, I would not say that it is concentrated, you simply need to use what you need of this cream. At $69 it is a little expensive, but this is honestly one of the first sunscreens that I have ever come across that doesn’t make my skin feel and look greasy and break out, but rather makes it look matte with a more even look, so to me it is well worth every cent!

What I Like:
  • That it contains SPF50+ - the higher protection the better under the harsh Australian sun!
  • That it is slightly tinted, leaving my skin more even toned
  • That it oil-free and gives my skin a nice matte look

What I Don’t Like:
  • That it is a little expensive
  • That it is only available through select salons and online

Overall, I cannot rave enough about this cream, and I am excited to be heading towards summer and finally know that I can protect my face without having to worry about breaking out in pimples. I will definitely be purchasing this again. If you too feel that sunscreens make your skin breakout, and you can afford the splurge, I highly recommend that you try it!

Have you every heard of the brand Mesoestetic before? Which sunscreen do you use in your face?



  1. It's a shame that we won't be needing the high SPFs anymore, instead a radiator in our pockets would be in order :D. Anyhow, great interview. I always enjoy reading them :).


    1. Thanks heaps Gita, after a long wet winter I am so looking forward to seeing the sun again! Hope you had a great summer though!!

  2. I cannot get enough of SPF 50. It is soooo important, especially living in Australia, and having witnessed two of my loved ones battle sun cancer. I use an SPF 50+ every day. My poor British skin cant hack the UVs ha!!

    1. My Scandinavian skin also desperately needs the SPF, but unfortunately they often make my skin break out, so I'm so pleased to have found this one!!
