Sun protection is so important for keeping your skin healthy and it is the best method for keeping your skin looking young. StyleKorean have added some new and classic sun cream products to their range and I have been trying them all out to review them.
Mary & May Vegan Peptide Bakuchiol Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ Review
This sun stick is really easy to apply and reapply. It glides on and sinks in quickly, making it ideal for topping up throughout the day. As well as offering sun protection, the sun stick contains bakuchiol and peptides to help repair skin damage and reduce wrinkles.
I think the Mary & May Vegan Peptide Bakuchiol Sun Stick has a nice scent and I enjoy using it. It has a silky finish that gives my skin a nice glow and it doesn’t have any whitecast.
Beauty of Joseon Matte Sun Stick: Mugwort and Camilia Review
The Relief Sun SPF from Beauty of Joseon is my all time favourite sun cream product so I was super excited to try their new Sun Stick. This one is suited to oily skin types, which is perfect for me. It gives a matte finish, which is barely noticeable on skin. You can’t really see or feel it, but it does give my skin a slight healthy glow.
As well as offering sun protection, the Beauty of Joseon Matte Sun Stick contains mugwort to soothe and nourish skin. This is one of the smaller sun stick products I’ve seen, but this makes it easier to take out and about with you as you can carry it in a pocket or bag.
Numbuzin No.3 Porcelain Base-Skip Tone Up Beige Review
The Numbuzin No. 3 Porcelain Base-Skip Tone Up Beige aims to even skin tone while offering SPF 50+. This definitely isn’t for all skin shades, but it does work quite well for me and I appreciate how well it masks the redness in my cheeks. I have actually been using this in place of foundation most days.
It takes a little while to rub in, but it’s definitely worth the effort. It feels surprisingly light, and it’s not shiny or greasy. It leaves my skin with a more even, less red tone, with less visible pores and a ‘porcelain’ effect.
Benton Air Fit UV Defense Sun Cream SPF50+/PA++++ Review
The Benton Air Fit UV Defense Sun Cream is a green colour, which helps to balance the redness in my skin tone. It is lightweight and feels refreshing to wear, as it also contains centella asiatica extract, which helps to soothe and cool skin.
For me, it sinks in well and doesn’t leave a whitecast. It has a nice finish and it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy.
Make p:rem UV Defense Me Daily Sun Essence Review
The Make p:rem UV Defense Me Daily Sun Essence has a light refreshing texture that moisturises without being greasy. Containing 73% moisture essence, it is a moisturiser first with SPF added – although as an SPF 50+ product, it offers a fantastic level of sun protection.
I find that it sinks in nicely, leaving a silky finish with no white cast. The sun essence also has a nice fresh scent.
Mixsoon Centella Sun Cream Review
The Mixsoon Centella Sun Cream is an SPF 50+ PA++++ chemical sun cream with centella to hydrate and soothe. It is a lightweight sun cream that sinks in really easily with no whitecast. I have oily skin, so finding a good SPF can be tricky, but this was perfect – hydrating with a slightly dewy finish, but not shiny or greasy.
Dr. Ceuracle Cica Regen Waterproof Sun Review
If you’re looking for a bigger bottle or a sun cream to use over your whole body, the Dr. Ceuracle Cica Regen Waterproof Sun is a great choice, as it comes in a 100ml bottle. As a waterproof sun cream, it is great for beach days. It is considered suitable for use on babies and children.
This is an SPF 50+ PA++++ chemical sunscreen with moisturising effects. It also contains cica for skin protection and repair.
Abib Heartleaf Sun Essence Calming Drop Review
This is a very unique SPF as it has a light liquid essence texture that you can almost squeeze out a drop at a time. It is SPF 50+ PA++++ with Houttuynia Cordata Extract (heartleaf) to help soothe skin.
The Abib Heartleaf Sun Essence Calming Drop sinks in very quickly and feels hydrating. There is no stickiness or greasiness. The main downside to this product for me is that I’m not a big fan of the scent; it has a grassy, slightly smokey smell.
Jumiso Awe-Sun Airy Fit Review
This is marketed as a moisturiser with sunscreen, but it does contain SPF50+ PA++++, so it has fantastic sun protection. It certainly offers a nourishing moisturising effect. I think the Jumiso Awe-Sun Airy Fit would be best for dry skin types, as it is a bit too shiny for my oily skin. It doesn’t have a scent and doesn’t cause whitecast.
Tocobo Vita Tone Up Sun Cream Review
The Tocobo Vita Tone Up Sun Cream is a SPF50+ PA++++ tone up sunscreen with a light texture and dewy finish. It contains 51% Vitamin Fruit Water to moisturise skin. It has a floral fragrance. It’s meant to be a tone up product that you could use in place of foundation, but for me the tone doesn’t match my skin at all, so it just looks like bad whitecast. I can feel it on my skin as well, so this won’t be one I use often.
