Premium Brightening Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++

A chemical sunscreen which is very affordable but performs like my more expensive sunscreen ones. Has a dewy finish but it's on this list only coz this one makes my face more oily throughout the day. (I have combo skin btw). Also, bcoz of its packaging, it's hard to get all the product inside.

Green Fit Pro Sun SPF 50+ PA++++

I love Kaine brand but this sunscreen, I'm not very fond of it. It's a hybrid sunscreen which is a cool feature but this one makes my face super oily all throughout the day.

I've been using the Kaine Green Fit Pro Sun SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen for some time now, and I must say, it has truly impressed me on multiple fronts. This hybrid sunscreen touts a unique combination of mineral and chemical ingredients, promising a range of benefits that piqued my interest. Here's an in-depth review of this product. **Claims and Benefits:** The Kaine Green Fit Pro Sun SPF50+ PA++++ claims to be a hybrid sunscreen, and it does not disappoint. Its hybrid formula effectively combines the advantages of both mineral and chemical sunscreens. This balance ensures comprehensive UV protection while catering to various skin types. One of the standout features of this sunscreen is its soothing nature. Upon application, it feels gentle on the skin, making it a fantastic option for those with sensitive skin. It lives up to its promise of being a mild sunscreen, causing zero irritation. The promise of being a "perfect UV defender" is backed by its high SPF rating of 50+ and PA++++, providing robust protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. I noticed that it's sweat-proof, making it ideal for outdoor activities or hot and humid days. This attribute is especially valuable for those who lead an active lifestyle. What pleasantly surprised me was how quickly it absorbed into my skin. It didn't leave behind a greasy or heavy feeling. Instead, it imparted a dewy finish, which I found to be flattering and natural-looking. The finish was particularly suitable for everyday wear, giving my skin a healthy radiance. The fact that this sunscreen is fragrance-free, artificial color-free, and devoid of parabens, phenoxyethanol, animal-derived ingredients, and mineral oil is a testament to its commitment to skin health. It's also gentle on the environment with sustainable and recyclable packagingโ€”a choice I wholeheartedly support. **Key Ingredients:** The Kaine Green Fit Pro Sun boasts a compelling lineup of key ingredients. Panthenol, with its 20,000PPM concentration, provides exceptional hydration and promotes skin barrier repair. Bambusa vulgaris water (10,000PPM) adds a soothing and refreshing touch, making it a unique inclusion. The 10PPM herb cool adds an extra layer of soothing comfort. Allantoin and ectoin contribute to skin calming and hydration. Meanwhile, the triple hyaluronic acid ensures a moisture-rich environment for your skin. **Color and Net Weight:** The light green color of the product is not only aesthetically pleasing but also hints at the natural ingredients within. With a net weight of 55ml, it's compact and convenient for on-the-go use. In conclusion, the Kaine Green Fit Pro Sun SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen is a commendable addition to your skincare routine. It successfully combines the benefits of mineral and chemical sunscreens, making it suitable for various skin types. Its soothing, hydrating, and UV-defending properties, along with its eco-conscious packaging, elevate it in the world of sunscreens. Whether you're stepping out for a workout or simply going about your day, this sunscreen provides dependable protection and a radiant finish.

Dive-in Mild Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA++++

I know that this is a mineral sunscreen but it claims that it will not leave a whitecast so I have higher expectations. It surely did not leave whitecast but there's definitely a tone up effect. It's not a bad thing tho, but not my preference. Also, blending time is a lil longer especially when you put too much and if you don't really have that long patience in blending, whitecast it is๐Ÿ˜… But I love its dewy finish.

Let's start with the packaging โ€“ it comes in a sleek white tube with a light blue cap. The small dispensing opening allows for precise control, making it convenient for applying sunscreens. The minimalist design and the texture of the container give it a luxurious feel. Plus, it's eco-friendly, crafted from FSC-certified materials and printed with soy ink. Moving on to the product itself, it has a milky white color and a thick, cream-like consistency, as expected from a sun cream. Now, the scent โ€“ it's pleasantly unscented, though you may detect a subtle hint of the ingredients, reminiscent of the scent you encounter when underwater in a swimming pool. Let's discuss the claimed benefits: this is a vegan sun cream containing zinc oxide for sun protection without irritation. With SPF50+ PA++++, it guards against UVA and UVB rays. It boasts 10 types of hyaluronic acid for deep skin hydration. The non-sticky formula applies smoothly without leaving a whitecast, making it suitable for sensitive skin. In my experience, I noticed a whitecast upon initial application, but it fades after a few minutes of blending. While it can be intimidating at first due to the initial whitecast, thorough blending is key. Impressively, despite being a mineral sunscreen, it doesn't leave a glaring whitecast and doesn't roll off the skin like some others I've tried. I also appreciate the finish โ€“ it gives my skin a dewy look with an instant glass skin effect, and it doesn't accentuate skin textures; rather, it blurs them. All in all, I love this product, especially for a mineral sunscreen. I highly recommend it to those who prefer mineral sunscreen without the whitecast issue, and it's a great choice for sensitive skin as well.

Tomato Glass Skin Serum Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++

This is a chemical sunscreen but there's nothing special about it. Also the sun protection is not that high. This is just an okay sunscreen for me.

Premium Tinted Sunscreen SPF50 PA++++

This is the worst tinted sunscreen I have ever tried. I know a lot of people love this but it's just not working out for me. It's peeling off like flakey skin on my face, so annoying.
