This sun screen improves the skin's moisture barrier and protects skin against UVA and UVB rays. It has a light-weight texture, which absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling soothed and intensely hydrated. It's suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Apply a generous amount on over face 30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply throughout the day as needed, especially during prolonged sun exposure.

I bought this product when I was not as educated about sunscreen so this purchase is, unfortunately, on my regret list. The packaging is a simple utilitarian opaque white squeezy tube. The ingredients however are questionable. The UV filters in this sunscreen are octinoxate, tinosorb s, ensulizole, and amiloxate (as far as I can see). Octinoxate is not reef safe and ensulizole can trigger allergic reactions for some people (luckily I've been spared). Even though I do not go to the beach often, I am still concerned about runoff and how the octinoxate in my sunscreen can harm our marine life. The UV protection from this product however is great. I enjoy how the creamy gel texture applies on my skin easily and evenly with minimal white cast. Even though there is alcohol in it, my skin does feels very moisturized when I use it. It does eventually dry down to form an even film. It is also great under and over makeup (for reapplication). The smell is a noticeable artificial aloe vera/cucumber smell due to the 'fragrance' in the ingredients. For me, the fragrance is not irritating, but I do wish that it wasn't as strong. Despite its flaws, this sunscreen is quite budget friendly compared to other Asian sunscreen. It costs around $5.9/ fl oz and the 1.69 fl oz tube will last me around ~ 1-2 months depending on how often I reapply throughout the day. Hopefully COSRX will reformulate this product, making it reef safe and free of synthetic fragrances. For now I won't be repurchasing this product but I would recommend it to those who need an affordable, protective, moisturizing, cosmetically elegant sunscreen for daily usage.
