Current Sunscreen Rotation

Skin Aqua sunscreen reviews

A wise friend of mine has been telling me that I should wear sunscreen even when I stay indoors because UVA can still penetrate through windows and we're most likely exposed to blue light which can affect our sleep and damage skin. I have to confess that I only started wearing sunscreen "daily" during this self-isolation period although I almost always wear sunscreens when I go out. These are currently in my rotation and some of them are my favorites that have been repurchased over time.

Kanebo Allie sunscreen review

1. Skin Aqua UV super moisture Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ ($18.19 Amazon)
This has been my favorite choice for my neck for a couple years already. I prefer to wear non-waterproof sunscreen on my neck but still want something with high protection. It is very hydrating and gentle so it's perfect for my neck. Easy to remove by just using good micellar water

2. Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ ($13.69 Amazon)
I bought this recently because I have used the Essence version and loved it. I happened to love the pale violet tint and its brightening effect from this line. Both milk and essence versions double beautifully as makeup bases.

3. Kanebo Allie Extra UV Perfect SPF50+ PA++++ ($27.99 eBay)
Also a favorite and this is my third bottle. Among waterproof sunscreens that have both physical and chemical blockers and leave a slight white cast, I think this one is the best. I even prefer Kanebo Allie over any of the Shiseido Anessa sunscreens. It applies very thin and evenly that you can easily go for second coat. It works as a long-lasting makeup base as well and my makeup never melts in summer if I wear this. It can be drying during winter so I'm looking into trying the Gel version later on.
