      I love the Canmake. I’m wearing it today and yeah it has both mineral filters too. I enjoy the Isehan &free Sensitive range from Japan if you’re looking for fragrance free mineral only. They’re a bit more pricey (about $AU25-7). Don’t recommend the Gel of it, but the Sensitive UV Cream and Sensitive Whitening UV Cream. The Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence is chemical only, but the Gel version has Titanium Dioxide and chemical filters. They’ve put fragrance in both now though as at 2019 edition which sucks. Though the Biore Perfect UV range and their Covering Bases/Oil Control Bases are fragrance free and have both the mineral filters & 3 chemical filters. They have alcohol though (doesn’t bother me but people who want no alcohol stick with the Canmake or the Iseha &free sensitive).

      Biore’s Aqua Rich Watery sunscreen is very similar with a mix of chemical and physical sunscreens and the same rating. I order it on Amazon because it’s hard to find in the US and US sunscreens are the absolute worst.

    Enjoy NZ! So glad you haven’t suffered from jet lag with such a short break in between trips. The stila eyeshadow is great, love a few shades.

    I fell in love with the Lancôme 198 Rouge Flamboyant after seeing you wear it in your Vlogs, but sadly when I looked it up we don’t have it here in the US ☹️ However, you did inspire me to try a similar shade. Thank you for the inspiration to go outside my comfort zone 💄
