Sunscreen is arguably the most important product in one’s skincare routine. Not only does it prevent premature ageing of your skin, it also helps protect your skin from damage caused by harmful UV rays, so it’s not surprising why sunscreen is a staple for many. If you have not made sunscreen a part of your daytime skincare routine, it’s not too late to do so. You’ll definitely be thanking yourself years later for taking the extra time (and spending the extra money) to protect your skin. Ahead, a list of Korean suncare products you can consider getting.
Brightening Up Sun SPF50+ PA+++, $45
This sun cream is one that is tinted, helping to brighten and correct your skin tone. It’s quite lightweight and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, plus it gives your skin a matte finish after application. Great for days when you’re feeling too lazy to apply base makeup but still want to look somewhat put together.
Available at all Sasa stores.
Every Sun Day Mild Sun SPF 43 PA+++, $52 and Every Sun Day Sun Fluid, $47
The Every Sun Day Mild Sun SPF 43 PA+++ from the brand was the first sunscreen I’ve ever purchased, and it has definitely served me well. This product protected my skin well during all the university camps I’ve recently attended, especially when we had beach days and had to be in the sun for quite some time. If you’d like that extra protection, consider the Every Sun Day Sun Fluid which boasts a higher SPF rating of SPF50+ PA+++ and also protects your skin from UV rays and fine dust.
Available at all Sephora stores.
Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF50+ PA+++, $22
This sebum-free, non-sticky sun milk uses only mineral-based mild ingredients, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin. If you have oily skin and have problems finding a sunscreen that won’t leave your face looking greasy, then you might want to try using this product. As this product might dry out your skin a little, it’s more suitable for those with oily skin rather than for those with dry skin.
Available at all Etude House stores.
Marshmallow Sun Cushion SPF50+ PA+++, $36
For all the cushion compact lovers out there, this might just be the product for you. As its name suggests, the texture of this product resembles that of a marshmallow, keeping your skin moist on the inside and smooth and fresh on the outside. Reapply your sunscreen throughout the day without ruining your makeup with this fuss-free product, all whilst giving your skin the protection it needs.
Available at all LANEIGE boutiques and counters.
Everyday Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++, $22
Smooth, non-sticky and fuss-free, this sun stick is designed with a curved shape for easy application on your face. It’s also lightweight, so you can always reapply this every few hours even when you’ve makeup on! Protecting your skin from UV rays, particulate matter and skin dryness, this product is one to consider getting for all those who are still new to the sunscreen game.
Available at all Mamonde stores.
