I have already reviewed the waterproof version of this sunblock which you can see here. This is cheaper than the waterproof version and more widely available. However, both are available directly from Innisfree with shipping to Australia on their website here. Unlike the waterproof version, this sunblock has a mix of both physical and chemical UV filters. This is my first review of a sunscreen containing chemical filters, so you can read more about the difference between the two on Skinacea.
This sunscreen contains sunflower oil and green tea extracts which claim to moisturiser your skin and help to protect against UV rays. As mentioned in my previous post, it also uses a 5-free system: free from animal ingredients, mineral oil, artificial colorants, synthetic fragrance and talc. So if you’re sensitive to any of those ingredients or don’t want to use a product containing animal ingredients, then this is a sunscreen to consider.
$13.19AUD for 50ml from Innisfreeworld or $26.38AUD for 100ml from Innisfreeworld This comes in both a 50ml package and a 100ml package. (excuse the mangled bottle, I have been using this for a couple of months to try it out) It has a citrus-y scent when first applied but rubs goes away after a short amount of time. How it feels:
This rubs in almost perfectly with no noticeable white cast. Because it also has chemical filters, it is less thick than the waterproof one. It dries between a nice mix of matte and dewey and would be perfect to wear alone or under makeup. It’s very easy to rub in and it doesn’t really feel like you have any sunscreen on.
This is a great sunscreen if you can tolerate chemical filters. I have very sensitive and dry skin and this hasn’t broken me out after it wearing daily. Because it does not claim to be waterproof, I would personally not wear it with swimming or any sport which may cause sweating. It is PA+++ which is great UVA protection. I think this sunscreen would be suited to most types of skin. The fact that there is no white cast makes it very cosmetically elegant.
