Red Flag Ingredient: ALCOHOL

I'm currently searching for sunscreens and I've check the Biore sunscreen the blue one. I've read reviews that it has alcohol. I did some readings on alcohols and this is what I've read. There are good types of alcohol which is fatty alcohols. This contributes on the increase transdermal delivery of ingredients. While the bad alcohols cause the drying of our skin and destroy skin barrier in the long run. Hope this one helps to those who started out doing skincare. You can also add some of yoir thoughts and knowledge. Happy skincare everyone. Stay hydrated! ♥ https://www.byrdie.com/alcohol-in-skincare

While certain alcohols can be irritating alone, it is essential to consider the overall formulation of the product rather than avoiding it altogether simply because of one ingredient. Some products contain drying alcohols, such as denatured alcohol, however, they also have other moisturizing and hydrating ingredients to combat the drying effects. Since most of us aren’t chemists, it is recommended to try the product first and see what reaction it has on the skin. Lastly, everyone’s skin is different so experiment and use what’s best for you. Hope this helps💕

True. I've been using sunscreen with alcohol these days but instead it doesn't worsen my dehydration at all and even it helps to lessen along with other products in my routine🙌🏻 but then again, if you know if it's not for you, then do not bother to try it.

I've tried sunscreens with alcohol and it never reacts well with my skin. I can see that people love the blue Biore one but I won't risk it causing a reaction to my skin.

That's right, many people suggest to use Biore, but most of them contain alcohol 😭
