Innisfree Daily UV Protection Essence (Sensitive) Review



Start of 2019, I was thinking of the best product to feature to jumpstart the year, as much as I'm tempted to showcase a "kick-ass" lippie, or maybe a great foundation with super nice and natural coverage because that's what you all need (I listen friends!)  I want to stress it this year that we are getting a year older (yes, no one can run away from that!)  so the best anti-aging skincare product?

SUNSCREEN!

I am featuring a sunscreen review not to push you to purchase this particular brand or whatever brand I'm using, I'm featuring this as a reminder that everyone of us - Male, Female even kids need the protection from harmful rays of the sun.

Today, I am featuring the newest sunscreen that I'm testing.

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Essence 
(Sensitive Variant)
Note: Pick the variant that your skin needs, 
they have different sunblock variants from No Sebum to Triple Care, Mild etc...

I got myself "Sensitive" variant because - self-explanatory.

The packaging is simple, the type of packaging I like in a sunscreen, clean, squeeze-type, easy to tote along and with a pointy tip.  I can easily dispense the right amount of sunscreen needed because I don't want to waste a single drop of this baby!

Innisfree Daily UV protection essence sensitive Says ---

This mild UV protection essence is hypoallergenic tested to be safe enough for sensitive, delicate skin.  The easy-washable formula of this daily sunscreen is conveniently removed by primary cleansing. This inorganic sunscreen is formulated solely with mild ingredients and mineral filter to reflect UV rays on the surface of the skin.

Pros
  • Packaging.
  • Texture is smooth and easily to apply and blend.
  • Absorbs into skin pretty quickly.
  • No allergic reactions even on first use.
  • Skin feels smooth after application.
  • Works as a great makeup base too since it makes the skins soft and hydrated.
  • SPF50 which is good enough for daily protection in the Philippines.
  • Does not create super obvious white cast. 
  • My face remains hydrated all throughout the day.
  • The finish is matte yet non-drying.
  • Smells great.

Cons
  • None so far.  Well, since it's SPF50, it is but expected that skin will look paler after application.
  • I know this is greedy of me, but I wish they come with bigger size because I tend to finish sunblock really fast!

Overall
A great daily face sunblock for sensitive skin. 

Tips

  • Apply after skincare products.  Last step in skincare before makeup application.
  • Always store in cool, dry place.
  • Eventhough this is hailed to be the best sunscreen for sensitive skin, it is still best to do a patch test by trying out testers before you commit to the full size.  I am one of those rare cases that gets allergic reactions even to products meant for sensitive skin.
  • apply a 5 pesos amount of product all over face and neck.
  • Don't forget to also invest on body sunscreen because the face isn't the only "skin" in your body.
  • The other variants are on sale at BeautyMnl.com.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Sensitive skin, all skin types!

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Innisfree store priced around Php650.00.

Swatch
The consistency is quite watery so it gets absorbed quickly 
and I find it easy to apply for someone with normal/dry skin.

Application
I like to apply a good amount including ears and neck for best protection.

Before and After
My skin looks the same, does not look super white or unnatural.  
And take a look at that "moist" and glow.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  2. Appreciating the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you offer.
    It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same outdated
    rehashed material. Excellent read! I've bookmarked your site
    and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
