Hello everyone! I’m back with another review. 🙂 Today I will be reviewing The Face Shop’s Sun cream. Since I live in a very hot and humid country, sun cream is a must for me all year round even during winter because the sun is always out. I’m sure many of you know how important sun cream is. For those of you who don’t know, it prevents premature wrinkles that UV rays can cause, sun burn and of course skin cancer especially if you are pale and many more. Okay 😀 Enough with that. Let’s get straight into the review.
A premium sun cream without stickiness, protects the skin for a long exposure of sun rays and also works as a makeup base.
Apply an adequate amount on the face and neck at the final stage of skincare.
As seen in the photos, it comes in a tube which you have to squeeze to get the product. It has sunflower prints on the tube which is kinda cute 🙂
The Scent and Texture
The texture is quite thick, it is not sticky/greasy. It has a beige tint to it which makes it look natural looking and doesn’t create a white cast like other sun creams. Although the texture is thick, after it has been blended well, it brightens up the skin and create a natural looking base. I has a very pleasant scent that is not too overwhelming. I absolutely love it. 😀
It has SPF 45 PA+++. For those of you who don’t know, SPF refers to the ability of a sunscreen to block UVB rays, which cause sunburns, but not UVA rays, which are more closely linked to deeper skin damage. Both UVA and UVB contribute to the risk of skin cancer. PA rankings are listed as PA+, PA++ or PA+++ with the more plus symbols the more protection from UVA rays, the rays that may cause long term skin damage and therefore age the skin.
Just like it claims, it is so long-lasting. I applied it at around 8 am in the morning and I still have it on my face at 7 pm and plus it is waterproof. I have a combination/oily skin and this sun cream is moisturizing while controlling the oil throughout the day. I was surprised that my skin became so soft and smooth just like a baby’s butt 😀 after applying it. My skin is acne-prone but after using this for months I can safely say that this doesn’t cause breakouts. 🙂
And Of course, it protects my skin from those harmful rays. 😀

I know that’s a lot of pros xD This is the best sun cream I’ve ever tried. I makes my skin look and feel amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to find a good sun cream. No matter what your skin type is, I’m sure this is will work for you. And for the price, I’m sure you can buy it online and get a better deal.
Would I repurchase? Do I recommend?
Yep. I would probably repurchase this if I can’t find a better one because I love trying and testing out new products and write reviews about them. If I were an ordinary person, I would definitely repurchase it. I recommend it to everyone 😀
