Favorite chemical sunscreen
September 2, 2020
Best chemical asian sunscreen that I've tried that is not water resistant, which may or may not be a downside to some people.
I find that water-resistant sunscreens tend to leave sticky/tacky residues; even if it may give me "better, long-lasting protection", I cannot stand feeling like there's something on my skin. This sunscreen does leave a slight film/resistance when I run my fingers over the area applied, but that's not a problem.
A bit more viscous compared to biore gel sunscreen or skin aqua moisture gel.
Light yellow tint upon coming out of the bottle, but once spread out it becomes transparent.
Takes about 30 seconds to fully dry, during which my skin has that cooling sensation.
Easily spread throughout face/neck/arms. I found that 1 pump seemed to be the right amount for the face & ears, 1 pump for the neck, 1 pump per arm.
No strong alcohol scent upon application; I unscrewed the top and smelled it directly, and I didn't feel that burn that alcohol smells tend to give.
I put it directly over my eyelids and get it everywhere in my eyes, and it won't burn.
1 downside: when you reach the bottom of the bottle, the pump stops working and you still have about 2cm worth of sunscreen in there, not to mention all around the sides.
It was definitely worth it.
