I've a cool find that I will share with you guys today. I know that a lot of people tend to hate sunblock, most especially affordable ones for in general, they have this sticky, icky texture, and they always yield that infamous white cast. Well, good news--there's an affordable drugstore sunblock/moisturizer that's completely tolerable! Guys, meet Celeteque DermoScience Sun Care Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30.
CELETEQUE DERMOSCIENCE MATTE MOISTURIZER SPF 30 IN DETAIL
It comes in a squeeze- type tube for hygienic and easy usage. Tube size is pretty huge and quite filled to the brim! :)

It has a bevy of SPF ingredients, although I think it can't thoroughly protect skin from UVA rays because it only has Titanium Dioxide, a common and not-so-strong type of UVA blocker. Please refer to the chart below:

BUT--I am not saying that this product cannot protect you from UVA rays at all. All I'm saying is that it's still something you'd have to reapply and support with other SPF- laden products.
CELETEQUE DERMOSCIENCE MOISTURIZER SPF 30 IN ACTION
Consistency is pretty thick yet kinda' spreadable. It has the typical sunblock scent, and absorbability takes a while. It does not dry to a matte finish as advertised, but rather a semi- matte one.
On a positive note, for an affordable sunblock/moisturizer, it has SPF 30, which is the recommended minimum SPF level for the face. Other affordable sunblocks only have the maximum SPF level of 15 or 25. If compared with other sunblocks of the same price range, I find that this one has a more superior texture and finish because it's not too wet and greasy. It leaves a tinge of white cast, although it's not that annoying to considered a caveat. The trick here is to apply it by layers, (if you have the time) or spread and blend it evenly on the skin. (if you don't have the time)
Overall, its quality is pretty decent for its price. It's not really a wowdotcom product for me as my HG facial sunblock is Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, but for beauties on a budget, this is good enough! For me, it's perhaps the best affordable facial sunblock out there.
It's good for any kind of skin type, I suppose, because its texture is light enough to be tolerated by anyone, including oily-combination skin. Not only that, this multipurpose product will help cut down your preparation time too!
