An all- time favourite sunscreen

Disclaimer! I have combination, more oily, sensitive acne- prone skin. What may work for me may not work for you! If anyone remembers first getting into Skincare or K-Beauty, you’ll know that you would’ve been introduced to this beauty. There is a reason why this has been a long running favourite in the beauty community for sunscreens, because it’s just so too good 😂 dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++
The texture super light and is like the in between of a water cream and gel and goes on very smooth and doesn’t leave a tacky or sticky feeling afterwards. There’s also no smell and is SPF 50+ PA++++ . For someone with more oily skin though, this tends to make me shiny after a few hours but re applying doesn’t seem to be a bother- so I wouldn’t say this sunscreen could be sweat proof. This seems so sit pretty well under makeup though, but would definitely recommend putting on a primer beforehand, even if your doing a minimal look for the day. I’ve been restocking this sunscreen for over 2 years now and don’t think I’ll stop because whenever I do go through a “reset” period with my skincare, this is usually the sunscreen I reach for. For someone who absolutely hates sunscreens, this sunscreen has really changed my perspective and experience with them.

Rating Sunscreens!!!☀️
dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ - this chemical sunscreen has changed my opinion on sunscreen and helped me realize that there are actually good ones out there - protects against UVA and UVB rays - has a airy melty texture and leave NO white cast!! - I use it as a sunscreen and moisturizer in the morning since I have combo/ oily skin, if you have normal to dry skin I would recommend using a moisturizer before this!! Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 - this physical is very light weight in melts into the skin really easily - usually physical sunscreen leave whit cast and can be heavy but this one isn’t like that and it’s also a moisturizer so it’s kind of 2 in 1 - the only negative is that it’s only spf 15 but aveeno does offer spf 30 but I haven’t tried it yet CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 - this physical sunscreen takes a while to work in and get rid of the white cast - the texture isn’t heavy but it makes my skin really oily after making my face feel heavy - I was very disappointed in this sunscreen because it left a whit cast and it also started pilling😕

Review Time! Ft. @purito_official 👏🏼 🌿 Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ I already know this is not the first time you’ve seen this sunscreen on Instagram but my opinion about this differs from most others. We all know this is a cult favorite, but this is probably the worst sunscreen I have ever tried on my face and I’m so sad about it, I didn’t want to believe it. I have acne-prone/ combo to dry skin. It was nice to see that this sunscreen worked well for those with oily skin, and that it was hydrating enough for dry skin. But no. Although the texture was very nice, this just wasn’t it for me. My skin disagreed with this so bad.. After about a week and a half/maybe two weeks of use, I started breaking out really really bad. I know this was the culprit because it was the newest thing I introduced into my skincare routine at the time. I had 4 huge zits on my face at once it was so disturbing for me. Especially after all the progress I made, I felt so set back. Side note: Yes, I know this is a chemical sunscreen and although I naturally like mineral sunscreens better, I’ve never had a chemical sunscreen make my skin react the way this one did. 🥺 🌿 Comfy Water Sun Block SPF 50+ PA++++ Once I seen this sunscreen contained Zinc Oxide, helllo mineral sunscreen !!!!! I had to get it. Regardless of the Unscented Centella SPF not working out for me, I genuinely love the brand Purito, they have other amazing products that worked so well for me (hint hint* the unscented centella serum is LIFE CHANGING), so I decided to give this one a try! This definitely did not further any irritation or breakouts (THANK YOU). Zinc is an ingredient that my skin loves so I was definitely happy with the results of this product! It’s lightweight, yet very hydrating for my dry skin. This is definitely a sunscreen I’d re-purchase. Highly recommend giving this a try if you have acne-prone skin, and overall think it’s better to stick to mineral sunscreens over chemical. xo

Purito Comfy Water Sunblock -Review-
Purito Comfy Water Sunblock -Review-
PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block ♥︎ Zinc Oxide - blocks damaging UV rays; its soothing properties is great for sensitive skin ♥︎ Titanium Oxide - protects skin from UVA/UVB rays and a stronger protection from UVB rays ♥︎ Niacinamide - strengthen skin barrier by preventing moisture loss - I’ve used this for approximately a month and 60ml is definitely enough! - ★ Doesn’t go in my pores ★ Good for my rosacea cheeks ★ My appearance looks younger b/c of the matte finish ☆ Has a minimal white cast ☆ Time consuming b/c it pills if you don’t apply little by little ☆ Does not go well on my dry areas and pills a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - • Recommend for lighter skin tones, oily skin and acne prone skin ~ Would I purchase this again? Nope.

This is going to be a short maybe not so sweet description/review of these small sample sized sunscreens that I was able to try in the last month! Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I’m not a big fan of chemical sunscreens because they contain a chemical that contributes to coral reef bleaching + the ingredients can be irritating for sensitive skin types! This formula, however, is “reef-safe” because it does not contain oxybenzone. I like this sunscreen because it acts like a primer and is totally clear! Great for darker skin types like me! It is expensive though so I’ll probably won’t repurchase knowing there are cheaper and better sunscreens out there (try Korean sunscreens). BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ This mineral sunscreen has squalane which is a great oil for our lovely face! This formula is good for dark skin types but it can leave a white cast (check out YouTube videos to see white cast ratings). Whenever I used this, I didn’t use a moisturizer because this is pretty moisturizing (almost too much). I haven’t used this lately because it’s summer though I probably won’t use it until the drier winter months! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 This is another mineral sunscreen that is suited for dark skin types too! I like this brand (recently there have been discrepancies and controversy regarding their cruelty free status due to selling in mainland China) & their products never fail! I like the glow this sunscreen gives me and it’s not too thick or anything! It does feel a little gritty but this may be because it was in my beach bag for a day… Still, I would probably repurchase this if I get another coupon from Ulta (this is little costly too for me) but for now I’ll stick to my Purito Centella sunscreen. Also, none of these sunscreens break me out! I have acne-prone, oily skin too!

My Favorite Sunscreen ☀️
My Favorite Sunscreen ☀️
I have combination skin that is sensitive and acne-prone. I’m also someone who doesn’t like anything with a sticky feeling on my face! 🌱This is the Centella Green Level Unscented Sunscreen and it is gorgeous. ✨First of all, it passes the Not Sticky test and doesn’t leave a white cast at all. It’s basically another hydrating moisturizer for your face in the way it applies and interacts with the skin. For this reason, reapplying doesn’t feel gross or heavy and this is one of the few sunscreens I actually enjoy reapplying throughout the day which is so important! ✨This has Hyaluronic Acid in it as well as Centella to enhance the skin barrier which provides protection from ultraviolet rays and any external stressors. It also avoids things like fragrance and essential oils so it is good for sensitive skin. ✨This is $16 for 2 oz which in my opinion is great for what you’re getting. What’s your favorite sunscreen? 🌞

Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked these popular hyped sunscreens based on how they worked for me personally (going from favorite to least favorite). My favorite is Unseen because it’s a primer and sunscreen in one, is lightweight and I haven’t had an issue with pilling. I prefer SPF 40 or higher. . Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Key Ingredients: Complex Derived from Meadowfoam Seed (increases hydration levels), and Red Algae (helps protect against blue light emitted by electronic devices). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: None Price: $34 for 1.7 oz / 50 mL Experience: Is designed to be used as a primer, makes it quicker to get ready. It feels so lightweight, I can’t even tell that I’m wearing it throughout the day, doesn’t pill or make me oily. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, I definitely am going to purchase the full size of this! It simplifies my routine and lightweight. . Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion 50 Default Title Key Ingredients: Sunflower Extract (protects your skin from external environmental elements) and Rosemary Leaf Extract (has a calming effect on the skin and is rich in antioxidants). Texture/Consistency: Lotion Scent: None Price: $32 for 5.5 oz / 162 mL OR $58 for 18 oz / 532 mL Experience: It was too heavy on top of a moisturizer and made me look greasy, but applied by itself it was lovely (have a glow, but wasn’t too heavy). It also doesn’t pill when I put my makeup on. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, it would be more for people with dry skin, but it’s moisturizing enough to act as my moisturizer too so I apply it by itself (or on top of serum). . FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that helps filter harmful UV rays) and Alteromonas Ferment Filtrate and Vitamin E (both help protect against environmental aggressors). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Liquidy Price: $34 for 1.5 oz / 44 mL Experience: I love that this is tinted, it doesn’t leave a white cast at all! It is lightweight, easily sinks in, and doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. It also doesn’t pill at all, so easy to put makeup on after. Repurchase/Recommend?: Maybe, I just wish it was a higher SPF. . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that protects from harmful rays) and Algae Extract and Sunflower Sprout Extract (both protect against free radical damage). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Lightweight Cream Price: $36 for 2 oz / 60 mL Experience: It feels heavy and doesn’t sink in all the way, plus pilled and made my CC Cream look cakey and terrible. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, it pilled badly and doesn’t work well with makeup on me.

All-Time Fave SPF 🤩
All-Time Fave SPF 🤩
hellooooo people for this post I’m sharing my thoughts on my favorite SPF at the moment: Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ 🥰 I’ve been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I decided to try it because it was recommended from one of my fave instagrammers @whatsonvisface and all my other SPFs leave horrible white casts or grease on my face, so I really needed a new one! And y’all- I love it! It really doesn’t leave any sort of white cast on my face and maybe makes my face look a little shiny (for which it loses a star) but nothing too many and goes really well under makeup- no heavy feeling, no pilling or anything! After dealing with a million other SPFs that broke me out, left horrible white casts and made me greasy, this feels like a godsend! It has never irritated my skin and has never made me break out in the 3 weeks I’ve been using it. There is fragrance in this version which is very subtle, and although it has never irritated me there is an alternative fragrance-free version you could purchase instead! I can definitely see myself repurchasing this once this runs out, as I use it everyday! I believe I purchased it on amazon for $15, which I think is unbeatable and well worth the money and effort! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple daily sunscreen to incorporate into their routine.
