I’m always in search of sunscreen for the face-I’m not into BB CC creams much because you have to put on a good amount of sunscreen to get the benefit, and BB CC creams offer more than I want when it comes to coverage.
I enjoy going to The Face Shop-a Korean cosmetic and skincare store that opened in Hawaii a few years ago in McCully Shopping Center (really bad parking) and now Ward Warehouse (good parking).
The young girls are very helpful and use many of the products. They give free samples with every purchase. (When I run out of my Clarin’s toner, I am buying their Green Tea toner-really nice!).
The most popular sunscreen is the whitening version of the same Natural Sun, Super Perfect Sun Cream, SPF 50+.
It’s somewhere in between a liquid like Clarin’s UV 40, and thick cream like Banana Boat or Dr. Melanie Tantisira’s physical, chemical free sun block.
It does feel moisturizing, and goes on easily over make up. My friend asked me what the active ingredient was and I didn’t know. I did know the packaging is in a blend of english and korean. (Turns out it is sunflower sprout extract–coincidentally, Clarin’s uses the same in it’s neck cream).
As you may have figured out in the post about La Roche-Posay, I don’t read the package info often.
It’s like setting up a car stereo in high school- just mess around with a bunch of wires until you get music coming out of the speakers.
I do get a little irritation if I put the product on my eyelids-but nothing like the last product. I really like the creaminess and non-greasy formula. I use the Super Goop Vitamin C spray on product for my body, and it spells like oranges, but is sticky and definitely greasy. I think it gave me a bit of a rash too.
Anyway for $15 bucks or so-I like this product. Comparable in price to Cerave’ and Cetaphil, but natural based.
I like that.
