It comes in a 50ml orange tube with a flap cap. I prefer this kind of packaging sebab senang penutup tak hilang haha

Very strong floral scent, macam sabun mandi LUX.

It has a thick lotion texture.

My thoughts on Guardian Daily Sun Protection Face Cream
This is a hybrid sunscreen since it contains both chemical and physical filters. It only mention the SPF rating which is SPF50 without mentioning the protection against UVA. However, avobenzone can protect the skin from UVA tapi tu lah, takde sebut pun.

In terms of the texture, it has a thick texture that is hard to absorb into my skin. Even though my skin is dry, I didn't like the texture. Too heavy and greasy. It also irritates my skin, rasa pedih I need to wash it off as soon as I applied it. Tried it a few times, didn't enjoy the texture and the scent. So it's not for my skin. I guna untuk tangan je.
