I can’t ever stress this enough! If you do not wear sunscreen every day, you should right this instance! I don’t care if you want to me tan or not, sunscreen is absolutely vital if you want to look young and fresh in the long run!

If you’re interested in reading more about the other reviews I have made for them head over to my first post about them where I show you a little bit more about their brand and give you a full review of their toner!

Note: If you haven’t read about what my skin type is, you should read it before reading this post as it will give you a better impression on how it affected my skin and how it can vary from yours!

The product does retail for RM 110 (USD 24). You get 50ml of product which is pretty standard for a sunscreen as well. You can purchase the product here as well as read more about it and their brand.

Let’s move on to the review on whether or not this is worth it!

REVIEW

I haven’t been able to explore a whole lot if I’m being honest in terms of sunblocks, and it’s definitely one of the most crucial things in my skincare routine. I favour sunscreens that is lightweight. Although SPF 30 is fine for an everyday sunscreen, I still like choosing ones that are 50 for some reason, haha.

If you’re worried about the ingredients containing alcohol (which dries out the skin) fret not, the only alcohol present in the list is cetearyl alcohol which is a good ingredient that exhances skin texture!

This sunscreen is more of a cream moisturiser texture instead of a milk water one. It applies onto the skin really smoothly. Feels like a moisturiser but it would dry up to feel really light on the skin. With that being said, there are a few drawbacks.

The sunscreen gives a slight white cast after applying onto the face. It doesn’t make it look really pale but a little bit paler at least. Another thing is that it leaves my skin looking really oily. I have combination skin but more to the drier side. This one tend to make my forehead really glisten, not really in a good way. I don’t really know why…

VERDICT: BUY! (7.5/10)

It’s a good sunscreen overall. The ingredients list as per usual, there is no trace of harmful alcohol that could dry out your skin. A drawback that bothered me a little was that it made my forehead look shiny and oily.

What’s your favourite sunscreen? Recommend me more! I need to try out more sunscreen!

FTC – The product(s) mentioned was sent to me. All opinions and thoughts I made are truthful and based on my personal experiences, none of my opinions is influenced by anything else.

See you in the next one~

    I KEEP FORGETTING TO BUY SUNSCREEN!!! It’s so annoying; I know how important sunscreen is to long-term skin health, but I constantly forget. I doubt this one would be good for me (I have oily skin) Let me just open up amazon… xx

      Yea, I wouldn’t recommend this one for oily skin! But yessss get that sunscreen girl! A good tip is just to leave it with the rest of your skincare so that you can see it. Once you get used to it, it’ll be part of your regimen in no time~
