The first thing to note about the Vertra face stick sunscreen is that there is a variety of face stick sunscreen in the face stick category from the vertra brand.
These face stick sunscreen vary differently in terms of SPF power and titles. There is also the face stick sunscreen of 38 and 45 SPF respectively. However, this review only covers the Vertra Ghosts Face Stick Sunscreen with SPF 50+.
Manufactured by Vertra, a company established in 2004, they pride themselves in manufacturing skin friendly sunscreen solutions which is what they had in mind when they launched this line of face stick sunscreen.
They are innovation and quality driven, as they offer end users great value for every penny spent on their product. The vertra ghost face stick sunscreen was designed to be applied on the face as it is a foundation based sunscreen.
It can be used by both genders if, as a guy, you do not mind applying a foundation based sunscreen on your face. As the skin on the face is quite delicate, this sunscreen face stick from vertra is quite skin friendly. Most importantly, it is lightweight.
Thus, after applying it on your skin, you won’t feel like you applied anything on your face and this makes it comfortable. More so, the fact that this sunscreen follows a translucent formula makes it easy to blend in with your skin upon application.
It is a mineral type of sunscreen. In other words, it is composed of natural ingredients as it follows the ultra-fine titanium dioxide formula which is approved by the FDA.
More so, this face stick from Vertra as well as their other face stick product carries the official recommendation seal of the skin cancer foundation. It also contains the broad spectrum that protects you from harmful sun rays that could damage the skin.
This variant of the Vertra face stick is referred to as “Ghost” because of a property it was built with. This ghosting feature signals the end user when sunscreen applied to the skin is still active on the skin.
Hence, there’s no need to apply more on the skin until the previous one applied fades off or becomes inactive. Some sunscreens can be quite greasy which can make your skin feel uncomfortable all the time it would be on the skin or even stain anything that comes in contact with your face.
This is not the case with the Vertra Ghost Face Stick Sunscreen as it is non-greasy. The active ingredients in this sunscreen as with all other Face Stick in the Vertra Face stick line include: 7% of Padimate O and 17% of Titanium Dioxide.
These two active ingredients alongside other inactive ingredients like: Hexyldecyl Isosterate, Mica, Synthetic wax, Paraffin, Ozokerite, Polyglyceryl-2 Oleate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Ethylene/Propylene Copolymer, Tocopheryl, Fragrance and Iron Oxides birthed the Vertra Ghost Face Stick Sunscreen.
