Here's A Round Up Of The Top Korean Sunscreens You Should Get Now
Lagom Cellus Sun Gel SPF50+ PA+++, $36
You don’t have to be concerned whether this sunscreen will sit uncomfortably or heavily on the skin because it’s got a lightweight formula that dries down to a matte finish. That doesn’t mean that it’ll dry out your skin, though. The brand’s star ingredient, DermaFlux, hydrates skin cells at a cellular level with its advanced aquaporin-activating technology.
Thank You Farmer Sun Project Water Sun Cream, $30
Containing natural ingredients that hydrate, such as African walnut oil, hollyhock extracts and bamboo water, this SPF 50+ PA+++ sun cream keeps your skin soft and supple as it protects against signs of premature ageing caused by harmful UV rays.
Thank You Farmer Sun Project Shimmer Sun Essence, $32
With a rating of SPF 30 PA++, this is a radiance-boosting sunscreen – as its name suggests. It contains pink micro-pearls that will enhance your natural radiance and glow to achieve that coveted Korean glass skin.
Polatam Surprise UV Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++, $38
If you’re a sensitive skin girl who has been struggling to find a sunscreen that won’t trigger your skin, this just might be the one for you. All the ingredients in this tube are of green ratings on the EWG safety grade, meaning that they’re low-irritants that are sensitive skin-friendly.
The Pure Lotus Jeju Botanical Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++, $36
You won’t be battling with pesky white streaks of sunblock on the skin when it comes to the application of this neutral-toned sunscreen. Enriched with Jeju Botanical Complex Extract, a unique blend of botanical extracts rich in White Lotus Extract, a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent premature signs of ageing by neutralising the harmful effects of environmental free radicals, while also hydrating the skin.
Hera Sun Mate Leports Pro Waterproof SPF50+/PA++++
The newly formulated Hera Sun Mate Leports features the brand’s exclusive Sweatproof Film Technology that forms a thin yet powerful UV-protective film to ensure the comfort of skin even through prolonged outdoor activities. The technology also ensures that the sunscreen is both water- and sweat-resistant. Plus it also doubles up as a soothing product that calms the skin down after prolonged exposure to the sun, thanks to its witch hazel leaf component.
Laneige Marshmallow Sun Cushion, $36
If you didn’t already know, the Koreans are obsessed with putting everything into a cushion form (see: cushion foundation and blush) and this sunscreen from Laneige is definitely no exception. We aren’t complaining though, because that just makes it much more convenient for application. What sets it apart from other sunscreens is that it contains Japanese apricot extract as well as a skin-soothing powder that gently protects and soothes skin.
Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening UV Protector, $92
With the highest UV protection grade of SPF50+/PA++++, this lightweight sunscreen offers strong UV protection and helps to reduce skin dullness.
