The weather in the Singapore for the past two months has been sweltering hot and sunny. I did not really have the habit of using sunblock on my face, as it always leaves me a sticky feeling on my face.
Until recently, a friend of mine warned me again and again the harmful effects of sun to our skin, I have finally decided to shop for a suitable sunblock for my precious face.
Visiting to beauty counters in a departmental store came first to my mind, as I knew that would be the most convenient place for try multiple products. Hence off I went to the departmental store in Shaw House last weekend.
Laneige Sun Block Sensitive SPF 30 PA++ certainly caught my attention. Firstly, the sales girl at the counter was knowledgeable and was kind enough to give some small samples for take home.
Secondly, the texture of it was creamy-smooth, not oily not sticky. My skin was mildly prone to acne, but the sales girl assured me this sunblock is safe for use. It was made from the so-called 10-Free formula, which she explained that it contains lavender, chamomile, lemon verbena and aloe to smooth our skin.
Being a careful person, I did not buy the whole tube of sun block on the spot but decided to use the samples for a few days. I wanted to be sure that it would not give me any pimple breakout.
True enough, after a few days for usage as my last step of daily skin care routine, there was no breakout on my face. Below is my verdict summary of it…
- Creamy-smooth, not sticky
- Does not leave face looking oily
- Does not cause any breakout on sensitive skin
- Not overly scented
- Natural ingredients
- Slightly harder to wash off. I used a bit more facial cleanser than usual
- Need to be conscious to spread evenly as it may be “stuck” in my bigger pores
Overall, I am happy with product and will be getting a tube of it this weekend.
