At this point, it’s kind of ridiculous when someone asks you why you wear sunscreen. Cause we all know the importance of it. The morning sun may be good for you, but the UV rays after that, hell nah. You can find sunscreen anywhere and almost every skincare brand sells one.
However, I truly believe nothing beats Korean sunscreen. There’s just something about them that makes wearing sunscreen a whole lot more fun. Like what, you may ask? For instance, the formulation, the light water-like consistency, makeup-like finish, and so on.
So here are a few recommendations of some of the best Korean sunscreens out there.
Botanical Sun Cream with SPF 50+ PA++++
If you are looking for a sunscreen that’s moist, soft and brightens your complexion, then this is it. The Lotus Pure Jeju Island Botanical Sun cream tops the charts because it’s formulated to provide your skin with broad spectrum coverage from those nasty UVA and UVB rays.
Without leaving any white cast and clotting, this sun cream effectively blocks out harmful rays and chemicals that your skin constantly faces. Who doesn’t love a sun cream with no white cast? I do.
Not to mention, this multi-function sunscreen also gives your skin the hydration it needs. Your girl here loves hydration. Oh wait – one more thing, IT’S VEGAN!! For all you leaf eaters out there (not that you can eat this), this sunscreen contains eight native and organic plants infused. To name a few, Green Tea, Tangerine Peel, Aloe Vera Leaf and Rosemary.
And if you hate eating greens, then at least provide your skin with it.
Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk with SPF 50+ PA+++
This perfect everyday sunscreen is water and sweat resistant, which gives you the soft, matte finish you want. An ultra-lightweight sunscreen that quickly absorbs into your skin and gives you the extreme sun protection you need.
This sunscreen is designed to tone up and give you that slight brightening effect that will keep your face looking and feeling fresh all day long.
For my girls…. (and guys) out there with normal to combination and oily skin types, this would be perfect for you. Thank me later if you must.
Neogen Day-Light Protection Sunscreen SPF 50+/PA+++
If you wear heavy make-up and want a lasting sunscreen, then keep on reading.
Neogen sunscreen is formulated to wear well under makeup, with no greasy feeling and no white cast. This is the newest lightweight variation that is fast absorbing and airy from the Neogen sunscreen collection.
With 20 different kinds of plant extracts, this sunscreen officially tops the chart. Avacado, acai, aloe and hibiscus infused in this sunscreen are a few of the top ingredients that help calm and moisturise the skin even under the scorching sun.
If clogged pores are you’re concern, then you HAVE to get this, as it helps control sebum production on your face, keeping them pores clean.
Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen with SPF 36
What is Korean skincare without innisfree?
innisfree, as we are all probably aware of, has its own line of best-selling sunscreens. This one in particular sells 1 unit in every 38 seconds. I am not surprised though. Having used it myself, I can testify that this is one of my top 5 favourite sunscreens.
From the formula to the texture and the seamless invisible finish, this sunscreen is a joy to apply.
It’s a mild daily lotion with sunflower seed oil to provide lightweight hydration and Cica that soothes your skin to reduce visible irritation.
Thank You Farmer Sun Project Water Sun Cream with SPF 50+ PA+++
Thank You Farmer’s sunscreens are known to be pricey, but that’s totally fine cause I’d pay the price for my skin if it means the sun can’t kiss me.
This holy-grail product not only protects you from the sun, but also works as a moisturising cream, so if you’re searching for a two in one sunscreen, this is for you.
It contains high sunscreen capacity without the white cast of course, cause who want’s to walk around looking like Casper right? Comes with natural goodness like phyto-oligo, inca omega oil and bamboo extracts.
One application of this sunscreen on your face and neck makes your skin look radiant and smooth. The best part is it suits all skin types.
Whatever it is that you choose, always remember – Live, Laugh and WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN!!
