Very light compared to some other sunblocks I've tried. Not too runny too.



No white cast, dries 90% matt. Will look quite shiny initially so you need to let it rest of your skin for a while.



50+ I'm all nice and protected from the horrible Sun. PA+++ too what more can I ask for?


Dual Functionality

I got this because it is non-comedogenic aka won't clog pores. I bought it for camp last year (I don't wanna lug around 2 sunblocks - 1 for face another for body). I've been using it almost daily since then and I still have quite a bit left after a year. Note that I only use it on my face after camp. It is really affordable considering how long I've been using it.
It's waterproof and sweat proof. This is one thing you should look for when you're getting a sunblock for outdoor activities. It is totally useless if your sunblock runs when you sweat.



Frankly speaking, I'm quite happy with this product. The downside is that I've to wash my face with a little makeup remover to get rid of all the sunblock at the end of the day. It is important to remove everything on your face before you sleep!


Sticky after sweating

Didn't realise this as I do not usually use it on my body. However, during my Korea days, I find my face oilier than ever whenever I am using it. It also feels sticky and uncomfortable after a long day of adventure (eg. bungee day, I did not jump though!).


The Verdict:

I'm pretty satisfied in general. Dust a little loose powder if you find it too oily for your liking. It gets sticky, especially after sweating, so I don't recommend this as much as I did before.

Ratings: 8.5/10
Repurchase: bought a couple of backups but I am thinking to switch to other brands once they ran out
