Personal Opinion:

It is a gentle and mild physical sunscreen with high level of SPF: SPF50+ PA+++.

Most of physical sunscreen comes with low in level of SPF below 30 but this Cosrx made this physical sunscreen for people who are craving good sunscreen for sensitive skin.

Infused with plant-based ingredients extracted from Centella Asiatica, tarragon, and lotus to soothe irritated/sensitive skin WITHOUT leaving a white cast.

The mild texture physically reflects and blocks UV rays. It cools down the skin temperature heated from the sun as well, and defend the skin from external stimuli, while purifying the skin from inside. The thin and refreshing texture is compatible for all seasons. It leaves the skin smooth on the outside by absorbing sebum, and the skin-conditioning ingredients moisturise the skin.

Even though it is a physical sunscreen, it doesn’t leave a white cast and is infused with extracts from Centella Asiatica, tarragon and lotus to soothe sensitive and irritated skin.

This sunscreen leaves a soft matte finish so is great for oily skin as well.

Recommended for sensitive and oily skin.

Personal Opinion:

It is a lightweight textured sunscreen it sits under makeup well WITHOUT having any white cast or greasy. It absorbs well like a moisturizer. The key point of this product is containing 60% of snail mucin to hyrdate, soothe, anti-aging and improve skin elasticity. I don’t see much anti-aging effect by using it only for 2 weeks. But I can definitely feel the cooling effect after applying sunscreen and hydrating too.

It also comes with powerful broad spectrum SPF50+ PA+++ to defense the skin from free radical rays while calming the skin with a cooling sensation which is helpful to avoid a skin cancer especially in New Zealand.

I did not have any irritation even though I have sensitive-dry skin.

It goes very long way so it HAS TO be washed off with good oil based cleanser to prevent clogging pores. And it makes my eyes get stinging when I did not apply makeup after using sunscreen.

Recommended for dry combination skin.
