Hi loves!

Today I will be sharing my experience with the COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. I am hoping you are here because you have come to the realization on how important sun cream is for preventing skin aging such as un-even skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles. You do know that 90% and + of aging is caused by UV Rays right? So I am hoping you are already using a daily sun cream or are planning to 🙂

Anyways, let’s just hop right into it!

PRODUCT CLAIMS

The COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream claims to:

  • Provide a calming and soothing effect for the skin
  • Reduce skin irritations
  • Protect from UVA and UVB
  • Have a formula suitable for all skin types including sensitive

PRODUCT INGREDIENTS

What caught my interest the most about this product was not just the decent ingredients list, but the fact that it was the COSRX line itself. For me COSRX has been very successful with my skin. Since my skin is sensitive and acne prone, I find it very hard to find products that work for me without breaking me out. I also have never before found a sun cream that hasn’t caused me skin irritation.

As listed above, ingredients such as Stearic Acid and Cetearyl Alcohol can lead to acne breakouts for some people.

TEXTURE AND APPLICATION

The sun cream has an excellent texture. It glides smoothly and easily over the skin with a “whipped” type feeling. It literally is as smooth as butter. It does not have a heavy feeling on the skin but instead feels like a lovely hydrating day cream that is quickly absorbed into the skin while having just enough moisture to leave a radiant glow. For me, I have been  using this as a day cream as it sits lovely under makeup and does not make my skin become oily throughout the day. Making it suitable for those with Normal to dry skin.

What I like most about this formula is that it does not look cakey, does not leave a white cast and does makes my skin literally look baby smooth.

OVERALL EFFECTS

Like I mentioned above, this has become my go to day cream  as it provides the perfect level of hydration and moisture to my skin. And most importantly, it has never caused me irritation or any breakouts which is why I can use it everyday as a day cream. It leaves my skin feeling healthy and looking healthy. Since I have never before been able to find a sun cream that has not eventually broken me out, I was wonderfully surprised to find such a miracle & new holy grail product.

This has become my holy grail sun cream & day cream and I will be stocking up on it from now on. Since I am sensitive to all other sun cream, I most likely will not be trying any others as this is the perfect sun cream for my sensitive & acne prone skin!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE! THE BEST SUN SCREEN!

    Hi BiiBii, I wonder if this sunscreen is suitable for combination/oily and acne prone skin?
    Which sunscreen is better between the cosrx one and klairs one?

    • biibiibeauty November 18, 2016 12:49 pm

      During the summer I prefer Klairs and Cosrx during winter as cosrx is heavier. I have acne prone skin and have no problems with either.
