etude house sunprise review sunscreen packaging

Love the pastel colors and cute details on the packaging. The cap turns and 'locks' in place so you don't have to worry about spillage. With 55 mL in size, you can probably use this for a long time. There is a ball inside to mix the formulation as well. Remember to shake before use as we had an incident of the formulation separating when we don't shake.


Very strong floral, powder, plastic scent. I usually don't mind the scent but this is so strong it will start to smell 'plastic. It is really strong to me. You can't smell it as much when applied on your face, thank goodness.

Quite flowy, blends and absorbs into the skin well. 

On skin (Finish)

Once fully absorbed, you don't see or feel anything. It does not interfere with my makeup or contributes to additional sebum production. That's great because some sunscreens can be really scary. 

Sun protection

I cannot comment much on this (don't really want to test the effectiveness experimentally too lol). I trust that SPF 50+ and PA +++ is effective as claimed. 
As this is a 100% mineral-based sunblock, it is suitable for even sensitive skin. I have no problem using this.

Ingredient list

Quite a long list of ingredients, including preservatives, silicones, and fragrances. Take note if you are particular. 


Etude House Sunprise sunblock is a fuss-free everyday sunscreen for me. Remember to shake before use to ensure the formulation does not separate. I have no issue with its sun protection ability and finish. Its consistency is not the most lightweight but it is still easy to blend. I don't usually mind the scent but this is a little heavy. 

This is a 100% mineral-based sunscreen; thus, making it suitable for even sensitive skin folks. You can apply it to both your face and body.

Another thing to note is I cannot find any information on this product on the official webpage (Has this been discontinued?). Purchased it off Ezbuy and saw this selling on a lot of online platforms as well. 

- Affordable
- 100% mineral-based, suitable for sensitive skin
- Large capacity
- Good finish with no white/oily cast
- Does not make my face more oily
- Decent texture and consistency
- Blends well

- Scented heavily

Rating: 3.5/5
Don't mind repurchasing and using it again
