[REVIEW] CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted SPF50+ PA++++

CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted Review

CLIO Dermatory Hypoallergenic Sun Fluid Tinted Review:

After trying Dermatory’s hypoallergenic emollient (emulsion) I became curious about their other products and when I saw that they had released two new sunscreens with mineral filters I decided to try the tinted out one. As I’ve probably mentioned many times before (oops hehe) I usually prefer mineral filters because the chemical ones make my skin sting/burn and often they somehow seem really oily to me.

Naturally, the problem with mineral ones are that they are so white and make people look like ghosts. Helpfully, Dermatory released two mineral sunscreens – a tinted one and a non-tinted one. Since I haven’t tried a tinted sunscreen before I decided to try the tinted version, I also noticed the ingredient lists are slightly different, with the tinted one having the titanium dioxide slightly higher than the non-tinted one.

Of course, I was worried that the tinted one might be way too dark for me or look odd but I figured it wouldn’t look worse than any bb cream that was too dark for me. Coincidentally, after I ordered this sunscreen I realised it also contained “Thanakha” which is a plant extract from Myanmar used as a sunscreen, it was also in the Secret Key sunscreen I reviewed. I guess Thanakha is an ingredient which is now gaining attention in Korea? Although I don’t think there is much scientific research into it, but it’s still an interesting ingredient to have in the sunscreen.

Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

One of the key factor to successfully protect your natural skin barrier is to protect the skin from UV rays. Yes, I am talking about sun-protector products. My journey to find the sunscreen of my life has never ended. Now I have to admit my skin is the “super acne-prone” kind of skin. If it does not like a product, it will tell me without any delays. I’ve been through the time that I’ve bought a full size sunscreen after taking good looks at the ingredient list, just to realize that my skin cannot handle it. Of course, I’ve wasted quite an amount of money to learn a lesson that what my skin likes and what it does not.

To sum up, I understand the feeling that people always tell you to put sunscreen on to protect your skin but there are TONS (literally) of products which guarantee to do you good. Where to start now? Well, I am writing this review and hope that it will give you one insight into a skin-friendly sun cream. Having learnt a lesson from the buy-a-full-size-product thing, I decided that I will start with the trial size first. I purchased the mini size 20ml of Innisfree Perfect UV protection cream triple care SPF50+ PA+++ because it was the only kind of product that has mini size available. Don’t you worry. For sure, I carefully checked the ingredient list before buying it. 😉

Innisfree offers a variety of sunscreens, mostly physical sunscreen, so that every skin type, even the most sensitive will have a chance to grab on their products.

Etude House Sunprise Mild Perfect Relief SPF30 PA++ Review

Etude House Sunprise Mild Perfect Relief SPF30 PA++ Review:

Etude House has been one of my favorite Korean skin care brands for a long time, and also the first one that I tried. Admittedly I first bought their products not for their effectiveness but rather because SHINee were their advertising models. Not the best of reasons, but that’s okay, because I actually do like quite a few of their products.

Anyway, I picked up this sunscreen in Korea, when they were having a sale and the sunscreen I wanted to buy was out of stock. It seemed to be a new product and so I looked up the info and decided to try it since I was low on sunscreen anyway. What attracted this sunscreen to me was the fact that it uses physical filters and was in a cream rather than a liquid type of sunscreen.

The Saem Eco Earth Power Pink Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review

The Saem Eco Earth Power Pink Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review:

While I don’t have sensitive skin (well not majorly so) I still prefer to find a sunscreen that is mild and soothing and suitable for sensitive skin because my eyes tend to be very sensitive and very easily irritated. This means I generally go for sunscreens with physical filters because I can apply them close to my eyes without irritating them (or having them run into my eyes later in the day). It’s honestly quite hard to find a sunscreen without chemical filters that is SPF50, which is why when I saw The Saem was releasing one that was SPF50 and only contained physical filters I had to try it.

I’ve also read that people who have rosacea should use physical filters, which is also why I prefer to find a sunscreen with them. My rosacea is quite mild, but I think it is important not to aggravate my skin, and so this sunscreen looked quite promising. I also liked the simple design of the tube, and the fact that the sunscreen is meant to be soothing and calming.

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.

Son Reve Daily Sun Protection SPF 43 PA+++ Review:

I was lucky enough to receive a lucky box with this item in it! Well, it’s a relatively new product, it’s from a brand that I absolutely love, and it’s season appropriate! So imagine how happy I was. But it came with a surprise, it wasn’t a “normal” sun cream – I guess that’s why they don’t call it a sun cream at all! If you don’t know this brand you should read this to be introduced to it, and if you know of the brand… well, then you probably already want to read this!

Except this one. I returned to this one this year again. It’s IOPE UV Shield Sun Sensitive Cream. This one has me.

CATRIN Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF46 PA+++ | Brush Type Review:

I am always in search for a perfect sunblock. Having skin this sensitive, that is never-ending quest. Sunblocks do tend to break me out, leave my face ghostly, and when I think ‘this is it’ in the morning, afternoon proves me wrong making my skin angry. Although I do have my candidates for the HG status, it has almost gotten fun to search for another.

I am especially interested in those sunscreen products in ‘reapply throughout the day’ category. I also want it not to disturb my makeup, and I want it to be effortless yet efficient for lazy afternoons at home drinking tea on my terrace without making such cosmetic fuss.

So I stumbled upon Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX SPF 46 PA+++ with the brush. Ok, this should be a nice way to spend time outdoors and elegantly and effortlessly reapply my sunblock, told myself and bought it without more research.
