Biore UV Perfect Face Milk Though I have other sunscreens, this was the one I liked reaching for the most because of its high protection + how well it performed as a matte base under the rest of my makeup. ✨I’m going to finish up my current sunscreen stash (Cosrx Sun Soothing Aloe Cream - good but a little greasy, and Clarins Anti Pollution Sunscreen - good but a little too runny), but if I had to repurchase any sunscreen, it would be the Biore. It does leave a white cast, so if you don’t wear makeup, I would probably recommend it less. ✨This sunscreen is from Japan, and you need to order it from an overseas seller if you want to buy it in the US. I usually get mine from Amazon from $9-$15.
Bioré-Biore Uv Perfect Face Milk Spf50 Lotion Sunscreen White 30ml.
Today I’m comparing 3 sunscreen lotions made in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea - all SPF 50. 🇯🇵 Biore UV Perfect Face Milk (PA++++): This has a mix of physical (Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide) and chemical (Tinosorb, Octinoxate) filters. I really love the matte, slip feeling of this sunscreen, as it acts like a primer and absorbs excess sebum. This is the sunscreen I reach for the most because it plays so well with makeup, but it does leave the worst white cast of the 3, so I don’t wear it on bare-faced days. 🇼🇸loveisderma UV Shield (PA+++): Distributed by the same manufacturers as EltaMD but made in Taiwan, Loveisderma’s sunscreen is like a less greasy version of the La Roche Posay Antihelios Sunscreen. It has a slight tan tint which means it leaves no white cast nor sheen (though the tint is a bit too cool-toned for my own complexion). UV Shield also has a mix of physical-chemical filters with Zinc Oxide being the 4th ingredient on its list, along with brightening ingredients like niacinamide. I like that I can use this alone or under makeup, though it lacks the primer-esque qualities of the Biore one. 🇰🇷cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream (PA+++): This is mainly a chemical sunscreen (Octinoxate, Tinosorb) with a mineral filter (Titanium Dioxide) lower on the list. This also has aloe leaf extract as a humectant. This is the creamiest of the 3 sunscreens and will work the best if you have dry skin, as it moisturizes well, but leaves a slight sheen. This does not have a noticeable white cast, but the fragrance will stay on your face for a while.

6 Skincare Tips from a Celebrity EstheticianIt’s been eight weeks since COVID-19 has caused us to shelter in place with the goal of putting an end to the novel coronavirus. While social distancing is playing an essential role in our health, the same can’t be said for our beauty routines. For beauty buffs, the lockdown has meant an abrupt halt to our routine visits to our facialists, dermatologists, and everything in between. What’s more, staying indoors has limited our exposure to vitamin D (which our skin needs to thrive), heeded unhealthy eating habits (which can wrack havoc on our skin), and turned us all into our very own (albeit mildly inexperienced) esthetician. To ensure our skin and well-being is taken care of during such a confusing time, we tapped into celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau. Below, she’s sharing six self-care tips to practice as you social distance.May 20
