Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF 35 PA+++ – Review

I think this is one of the oldest Korean sunscreens; I had been postponing buying this sunscreen for years, as I knew it would be just like many other mineral-only sunscreens – drying and ashy.  This sunscreen contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, not micronised, as well as iron oxides that help to protect from… Read More Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF 35 PA+++ – Review

Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This sunscreen makes me very happy, especially after two recent failures, because it does what it says on the box. Let me start by saying that this product has been repackaged. It’s the same formula but in a sky-blue bottle instead of a yellow one. Don’t confuse it with a new sunscreen in a pink… Read More Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Mentholatum Sunplay Clear Water SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Mentholatum Sunplay sunscreens are one of the most popular sunscreens in Japan. They are affordable and provide high sun protection. The sunscreen that I am reviewing today is one of the Sunplay sunscreens reformulated last year. Japanese and Koreans sunscreens often go through changes.

Well, SVR released a new sunscreen aimed at oily skin types this year – SVR Sun Secure Multi-resistant Ultra-Matt Gel SPF 50+ (that’s a long name).

The Battle of UV Essence: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence & Isehan Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence

I am back! It’s been a while since I wrote about sunscreens for the last time. So here it goes. I used both of these sunscreens, one till the last drop and the other not as much. I have decided to review these two sunscreens together because they are almost identical from the outside and… Read More The Battle of UV Essence: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence & Isehan Sunkiller Perfect Water Essence
