Heliocare Gel SPF 50 (Oil-Free)

Advanced UV Protection

Normal & Combination Skin

Description Summary How to use Key Ingredients Works Well With

Heliocare Advanced Gel SPF 50 (Oil-Free) is a topical sun protection gel in an innovative lightweight formulation that is quickly and uniformly absorbed to protect the skin against daily environmental challenges. Suitable for normal, combination, and oily skins.

Key Ingredients include Fernblock, a natural plant extract from Central America with proven photoprotective properties together with technologically advanced filters that provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. There is an optimal balance between mineral and non-mineral filters to ensure maximum tolerability and cosmetic compliance. Sunsphere Technology increases the effectiveness of the filters, permitting reduced quantities of filters and thus lowering the potential risk of sensitization and allergies and improving cosmetic characteristics. Non-comedogenic.

Dr Webster’s Recommendations: Heliocare Advanced Gel SPF 50 (Oil-Free) is an innovative sunscreen is part of the basic Heliocare sunscreen range and offers photo-immunoprotection against UVB/UVA radiation while enhancing skin immunity. The natural antioxidants help to protect the skin from free radical activity. This is a good sunscreen for younger skins to prevent photo-ageing and the formation of skin cancer but if you have more advanced photo-ageing or pigmentation, then I would recommend the Heliocare 360 Gel Oil-Free which has superior antioxidant benefits.

Strength: N/A Product Size: 50ml SPF: 50 Application Area:  Face Use: AM

I love this sunscreen!! I really have a hard time finding sunscreens that don’t leave me shiny or burns eyes. No issues with this one – it absorbs beautifully. This will definitely be a repeat order!

This is it. This is THE ONE. I’ve tried a thousand types of sunscreen and finally found my go-to. I have oily/ blemish-prone skin and many sunscreens are too greasy, but then the ones formulated for oily skin often leave my skin feeling too dry and tight, or don’t rub in easily. This one is a perfect balance. Doesn’t make me break out, but also feels refreshing and leaves my skin with enough moisture. LOVE

I have finally found a sunblock that works for my skin! This is THE ONE! I am obsessed with this sunblock. I have dry and sensitive skin. This does not aggravate my skin, it works well with my other products, sits well under makeup. it absorbs easily with no greasy feeling or shiny finish! Amazing.

This is by far the best sunblock I’ve used. I just finished my first bottle, previously used the heliocare 360 gel fluid which left a slight white cast on my Type V skin. This does not leave any white cast at all. It absorbs very easily and leaves a soft satin finish. It did not cause any breakouts or sensitivity either.

Cleo

Cleo (verified owner) - 2 years ago

Product Rating:

I was really excited to try this because of all the good reviews but I ended up being really disappointed.

I did not expect the texture to be so thick/cream-like. Because it’s described as a ‘gel’ on the tube, I thought it would be more lightweight. It feels heavy on my skin, and I’m not sure if it’s a reaction with other products in my routine, but it balls up and leaves white flakes when trying to rub it in. I also don’t enjoy how this sunscreen seems to bring out alll the texture in my skin. It also leaves a bit of a cast, it’s not super noticeable, but it’s there (I have a deeper skintone).

Kim

Product Rating:

It is a good sun screen, however I am not a fan of the distinct smell it has (but all Heliocare products tend to have this smell). I notice it “balls up” when I put it on even though I wait at least 30 minutes after applying my moisturiser. Would I buy it again? Yes as I am willing to look past those small “flaws” due to the high SPF and over all quality of the product.

This is THE BEST sunscreen. There really is no alternative. My husband, daughter and I only use this – no shine, fast absorbing and TOTALLY effective. I’m a runner and have honestly never been sunburnt. I wear it every day under my make-up and it’s a great primer. I’ll always use this in my skincare regime.

Okay so I am changing what I said about this product. It is actually not that great. I dont think it absorbs into the skin. It actually creates these little dandruff like which is really annoying. I was trying to figure out what product was causing it. Not really worth it. You pay for what you get.

Azariah

Azariah (verified owner) - 3 years ago

Product Rating:

So far using this product has been really good. I also have mixed combination skin. At first I thought this was making my skin more oily, but it wasn’t this SPF. I just had to use a nice hydrating serum/night cream. It really helped minimize the oiliness. Other than that this product does give a tinted type colour, but after rubbing it in it does absorb into the skin. Doesn’t feel sticky or leave an unpleasant residue or grayish/ashy tone on the skin. Also has a nice scent to it.

Candice

Candice (verified owner) - 3 years ago

Product Rating:

Really enjoying this cream. No white cast from this. Although it feels fairly ‘thick’, like it might end up feeling sticky, it dries down really well, doesn’t leave my face too shiny, and is easy to spread.
It has a lovely fragrance that isn’t too strong and fades fairly quickly after application. [I bought a Vichy SPF 50 face cream and the smell was so overpowering – and a scent I hate – so I had to give it away].
I finally understand what all the hype is about!
Will definitely repurchase again and again.

My skin is very sensitive to the sun and is prone to pigmentation. Ive tried so may sunblocks and finding one that doesn’t leave the white film on my african skin and actually works, or one that im not sensitive to because of the chemicals has been a challenge. This is the best sunscreen i ever used. Its feels like nothing on,its not greasy nor dry and has a natural suttle scent. I love it!!?????

I was so excited to purchase this product as I had heard countless of people raving about it on social media. I used it twice and on both occasions I got sunburnt. So disappointed as I was really looking for a good sunscreen to protect my skin:( Definitely feel like there are cheaper brands on the market that are much more effective. However, on the positive side, it is lightweight and smells good.

Lee-Shay

I agree with Lee’s review – I found this product to increase my oiliness which is counter-productive as it’s supposed to be suitable for oily skin. It is definitely more lightweight than other sunblocks but doesn’t work for me.

I absolutely love this sunscreen. I have used drugstore sunscreens for most of my life but grew tired of the extra effort required to rub in, white residue, and oiliness! I am so glad I tried this sunscreen and it’s definitely worth the extra coin. I really love that the product does not leave a white residue and is lightweight. It also works beautifully under makeup. I have seen a lot of reviews on how this is suited for combination to oily skin types. However, I have normal to dry skin and love using hydrating creams under rather than sticky sunscreens. It’s worked perfectly for me too. Highly recommend!

This is one of the best sunscreens I’ve ever tried. I know I should use sunscreen every day, but applying sticky sun lotion on top of my flawless finish turned me off. This product solves that problem because it’s so light, there is no residue plus I’m protected with a high SPF.

WOW-If there was a 10 rating, I would definitely give it that.BY FAR, the BEST sunscreen I have ever used-and I have used many different brands, from drugstore to luxury. It is fabulous for oily skins and spreads and absorbs super easily.Will highly recommend this for oily, hyperpigmented, melasma prone skin types.SUPER!

This is one of the best sunscreens I’ve ever tried. I know I should use sunscreen every day, but applying sticky sun lotion on top of my flawless finish turned me off. This product solves that problem because it’s so light, there is no residue plus I’m protected with a high SPF.
