Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++ Review:

The sun is something that is both amazing and scary – in the way that it brightens and lightens our days and yet too much sun exposure can give us skin cancer. I guess it isn’t something that bothers or worries everyone, but as someone who lives in a place with extremely high skin cancer rates it does bother me. Because of this I’m always researching for new or different sunscreens because I never know when one will be discontinued, or whether I’ll find one that I like using more. I usually have a bunch of sunscreens on my radar that I plan to try at some stage or another and I found this sunscreen the last time I was looking for one.

I often choose sunscreens after looking at the sunscreen filters, I don’t generally care too much about the other ingredients which may or not be a bad thing. But what I look for is a sunscreen that protects against both types of UVA rays (and UVB rays too). Some sunscreens only partially protect against all of the range of UVA rays, which automatically rules them out for me. It’s another reason I like mineral sunscreens because the mineral filters protect against all the types of UV rays (UVA1, UVA2 and UVB) so it’s easy (for a lazy person like me) to check if it protects well against UVA rays. Phew I wrote a lot of boring stuff, right? Unsurprisingly I mostly chose this sunscreen because it was a mineral sunscreen and I had good experience with the last Secret Key sunscreen. Not the most exciting reason, but somehow this sunscreen appealed more than any of the others I had been researching, so read on if you’re curious to see how well it performed.

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+PA+++ Review

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++ Review:

To be honest, I’ve always been quite intrigued with Yadah’s skincare line. It’s not the most raved about brand, I think, but it does pride itself on being “natural” and sensitive skin-friendly, so that certainly got my attention. However, since I try not to spend impulsively in general (although I do have strong urges… don’t we all?) I couldn’t really find a reason to purchase anything from the brand because I had other products to use up first. So when I received this in a gift exchange among friends last year, I was very excited.

Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 / PA++ Review:

I have tried some other products from Klairs, (like the Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop & the Supple Preparation Facial Toner) and I am very satisfied with those. Klairs is a well known brand for sensitive skins, which already has my attention, and the luxurious ingredients in this formula totally made me give it a go.

[REVIEW] New 2018 OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA Review

OMI Menturm Japan Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When it comes to sunscreens, I admit that I’m quite partial to Japanese formulations. Due to their high SPF/PA ratings to block out harmful UV rays, cosmetic elegance, double function as makeup primers and availability in local stores, it’s no wonder that I always end up picking out one or two to try when I’m low on sun protection.

Hence, when I was approached by Cosmeperks to try out a recently launched sunscreen from Menturm, I was intrigued right off the bat and agreed almost instantaneously. Putting honesty at the forefront of all my reviews, did this sunscreen manage to flirt its way into my “forever repurchase” list?

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF35 PA+++ Review

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF35 PA+++ Review:

Sunscreen is the most vital part of a skincare routine, isn’t it? Not only it is one of the most effective methods of anti-aging, it also prevents the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Innisfree is a popular brand that I personally like a lot. I have previously tried several of their products before and not only they are inexpensive, they’re also effective.

They released a while ago a new line of sunscreens, hoping they would be as good as the previous ones I’ve tried from the brand, I bought the No Sebum version. No Sebum, you say? We’ll see that.

Biore UV Nobi-nobi Kids Milk SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

Another sunscreen I managed to pick up via my friend when she was visiting Japan, and one I’ve been meaning to try as well due to its alcohol-free status. Although being marketed primarily as a kids’ sunscreen, that did not deter me – instead, I felt it even more of a safer option for my sensitive skin type! Let’s see how it fairs.

[REVIEW] MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++

MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Gel Review

MAKE P:REM Blue Ray Sun Gel Review:

I have always been keen on searching and testing for new products that contain innovative formulation and that works. My journey to find the holy grail sunscreen has not yet ended. I am still looking for my muse, my force and my inspiration to remind me that I need to protect the skin from the UV rays.

In mid of 2017, I found out that Make P:rem released a new sun care range: “UV Defense me. Blue ray”. This time the range offers 3 different sunscreens with different names. (I supposed it is because of the texture of the products) We have Blue ray sun gel/cream/fluid. The products became virally common in Korea.

Brief about the product: Released around April, 2017, this sun gel claims that it can reduces the effect of IR. There has been yet any IR filter to block the radiation from damaging the skin, but what this product do is to bring the skin’s surface temperature by up to 4.7ºC. I will talk more about this in my detailed review

OMI Menturm Sun Bears Strong Super Plus SPF50+/PA++++ Review:

After seeing this sunscreen float around the AsianBeauty sub-reddit and various beauty blogs, when my friend visited Japan for a bit, I almost immediately jumped at the opportunity when I saw it on a hugely discounted price in the store based on my friend’s window shopping pictures. A cheapskate, I definitely am, haha.

[REVIEW] Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++

Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Etude House Sun Blind Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for Etude House products, and they remain (as previously mentioned) one of my favourite Korean brands. I know a lot of people dislike their products, but for me their products tend to be inexpensive ones that don’t irritate my skin and generally work out okay. Last summer I was on the hunt for a way to reapply sun screen during the day, because I live in a country with extreme UV rays (all year round) where it’s possible to get sunburnt in ten minutes. Because I am unable to tan, and also have mild rosacea which means I should use sun screen every day and avoid the sun. These issues or factors made me want to have some way to reapply sunscreen over bb cream during the bright sunny summer days. But even people who can tan, should avoid some sun exposure because the UV rays can cause both skin cancer and age our skin.

So, when Etude House released this sun screen cushion designed to be applied over make up, I found myself unable to resist ordering one. While it has different sun screen filters than I usually prefer, I felt that was okay because it’s designed to go over a bb cream or foundation and it won’t be directly in contact with my skin. For once I didn’t buy this for the packaging either, because to be honest I’m not a huge fan of the striped design, but the design doesn’t matter for sunscreen, after all.
