MISSHA All-around Safe Block Fresh Sun Stick SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

Have you ever wished applying and re-applying sunscreen would be (even) simpler? Our fingers are one if not the dirtiest place on our body. With most sunblocks, we have to use our fingers to apply the product on our face. That usually isn’t as big of a problem but what if you’ve been outside of your house for 3 hours already, you have used the bus, your phone, multiple door handles etc..?

The more things you touch, the more germs and dirt your hands have. That means, the more chances you have to get a new pimple surprise on your beautiful face. There are couple of solutions for that, but I don’t want to be anxious all the time about finding a place to wash my hands, use antiseptic AND redo my makeup. And then I found this sun stick. It covers my needs of (kind of) hygienic sun protection so I thought I’d give it a try.

[REVIEW] CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++

[REVIEW] CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++

CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++ Review:

Skincare regime is a complex thing, I would say. I am a beauty junkie and like checking out the many products and purposes. Even I occasionally get a headache from scouring through them.  So for the minimalists out there who prefer a less cluttered life, my (non-representative) suggestion is to have at least the basics; cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.

Admittedly, sunscreen would not have been on my list years back.  I became aware of sunscreen only in my early 30s (do I hear some gasps of shock?)! I periodically made purchases of sunscreen, exploring both drugstore and luxury brands.  But I quickly moved from one brand to another because of either the sticky feeling, the whitecast or the breakouts they caused. I was on the verge of giving up, but pigmentations start to show up more obviously on my skin and I decided it is time I take sun protection seriously. Better late than never.

Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

Skipping sunscreen is probably the worst you could do to your face, or at least next to sleeping with your make up on. I have to say, with much regret, that I am one of those girls who don’t really wear sunscreen. I’ve always wanted to but I just couldn’t find the one just yet. Since I live in a country where it’s practically summer all year round, wearing sunscreen is a must! Unfortunately for me, I always end up buying something that’s a little thick, a little greasy and leaves white cast.

Needless to say, my experience with sunscreens aren’t that good so I end up depending on the spf provided by bb creams or cushion foundations, and you know they aren’t enough! Incorporating acids to my routine forced me to use a decent sunscreen. Missha’s series of sunscreen are highly praised in the AB community; apparently, you could never go wrong with this brand so I grabbed Missha All-around Safe Block Velvet Finish Sun Milk (SPF 50+ PA++++) without hesitation!

[REVIEW] Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++

[REVIEW] Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++

Benton Papaya-D Sun Cream SPF38 PA+++ Review:

I debated whether to write a review about this product or not. Lots of you have already read the reviews for this cream, and many of you have tried it, since Benton is a relatively big name in the AB community. But since I had more information on this sun cream (because at this point Benton didn’t release only this sun cream but also another, stronger one) I thought I should still review it. Note that this is a review for the Papaya-D sun cream, D stands for Daily. So, honestly the low SPF and PA didn’t really surprise me, and I purchased the product anyway.

New 2017 AHC Natural Plus Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

In the summer season I always get my hands on enough sun protection to last me for the whole year. Of course, being the sun protection lover I am, I always feel attracted to sun sticks for their practical abilities (also they can actually be washed if they fall on the sand). I love any type of sun cream I can carry in my bag – my most recent favorite being the Son Reve sun cream – and of course a sun stick is more practical to carry around.

So, seduced by Kang Sora’s perfect nose when she applies this sun stick, I got one. I even took it with me on vacation! (warning: vacation photo included)

MISSHA All Around Safe Block Total Moisture Sun Gel SPF50+PA+++ Review:

Protection from UVA and UVB rays is the most important part in almost everyone’s skin care, as these two are at fault for most imperfections, even acne! I personally wear sunscreen religiously for two basic reasons. I want to look like I’m 20 when I’m 40 and I have a lot of hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. The sun is hyperpigmentation’s worst enemy as even a short exposure to it can make acne way worse. Since I use so much sunscreen daily, a normal tube of 50-100 ml isn’t really convenient. For that reason, when I discovered Missha all around safe block total moisture sun gel, which comes at 200 ml and also with very convenient packaging, I thought it could be ideal for when I stay at home. I knew I had to buy it.

Missha All Around Safe Block Daily Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

The first Korean skincare that I purchased was actually a sunscreen. It is because most of drugstore’s sunscreen would not work on my skin back then. It will be either too white, too greasy or broke me out. So I was searching high and low for a perfect sunscreen, and met Korean skincare products that I fell in love right away.

Recently, I came across this Missha All Around Safe Block Daily Sun. It has 50+ SPF and PA++++ made me not hesitate to purchase right away. I can feel the heat nowadays has become stronger and I always found myself reapplying my sunscreen quite often. So a perfect sunscreen is definitely needed here.

Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF46 PA+++ Puff Type Review:

I have a feeling that the search of the Holy Grail is easier than that of a good sunscreen. Once I got it through my thick head how important sunscreen really is my quest begun. Finding one that can go over makeup proved to be especially difficult. After all, most sunscreens are designed to be worn under makeup. Or maybe it is my skin, it just doesn’t do well with a lot of products on it. Well after I came to that conclusion I figured that a powder type sunscreen was the way to go and after some reviews and 2-3 weeks shipping time here we are.

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ Review:

I’ve used up two tubes of the Missha Essence Sun when I ran out, only to find that they came out with more products within their sunscreen line. So being the curious cat that I am I bought the Missha Essence Sun Milk on a whim. I love the original Essence Sun so I know it’s going to be just as good if not more.

Missha recently changed the packaging of their old sunscreens and added more, so now there are a total of 5 different kinds of sunscreens for everybody out there. There is the Essence Sun SPF 45+ / PA+++, Aqua Sun Gel SPF 50+ / PA++++, Soft Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA+++, Waterproof Sun Milk SPF 50+ / PA++++, and finally the star of this review: Essence Sun Milk.
