First Impressions

WTF does it feel like?

applied on top and rubbed out below.

I enjoy this sunscreen’s texture, it’s like spreading a cream moisturizer. It isn’t runny and isn’t sticky. It leaves a slight white cast.

WTH is that smell?

It has a mild physical sunscreen smell that lingers.

How the fudge do I use this?

Apply this after your last step moisturizer. I find that it doesn’t leave a white cast if you apply lesser amount, but then what’s the point of sunscreen?

Despite Innisfree’s long lasting claims, reapply any sunscreen after 2 hours in the sun. Wash off sunscreens with an oil cleanser.

What it promised us:

Product Claims How I feel
“A multifunctional, water resistant UV protection cream that is smooth to the touch without being sticky and lasts for hours.” Yep, sweat like a pig for several hours and it was still on my face. Smooth and not sticky.

Additional Blab:

What makes a sunscreen physical (inorganic) or chemical (organic)? Read it here.

I was fed up with how dry my Biore Perfect Milk made me, so I bought this. This sunscreen’s ingredients are quite clean and it doesn’t have alcohol like Biore sunscreens do.

I like this quite a lot because of how it glides over my skin like a moisturizer and isn’t that drying. Sadly, the thing about physical sunscreens is that they always have a white cast, and this one is no different.

During a parade, I was outside for a few hours sweating like a pig. To my surprise, my face still had a white-ish tint to it later on, before I even reapplied.

My routine when I used this product:

Morning Night
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence
NARUKO Magnolia Toner NARUKO Magnolia Toner
Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid + Jason Vitamin E Oil
Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream Triple Care Human Nature Acne Defense Gel as spot treatment
Tretinoin 0.05% 3 times a week

Okay, stfu already. Where do I buy this?

Btw, Innisfree is a Korean brand.

Amazon: ~17 USD

  1. Hi, will it be too dry for dry skin user? Btw, have you tried Innisfree perfect UV protection cream for dry skin or oily skin? Will you review on that?

    1. Hi! From my experience, yes it will be too dry for dry skin. Sadly, I have not tried either of those sunscreens. I might buy them after trying the Dr. Jart sunscreens though 🙂 Currently, I’m using the CANMAKE Mermaid UV gel sunscreen, and it’s amazing for dry skin! I’m already on my 2nd tube.
