We’re counting down the days till its officially Summer and sunscreens are trending! Is it me or has SPF and sun protection been spoken about A LOT in 2020? I think we’ve begun to accept that prevention is WAY better than coverage. Newer sunscreens now offer more than just UV ray protection, some sunscreens correct fine lines and wrinkles, others moisturize and keeps the skin hydrated, while some do it all!

Check out my top K-beauty sunscreen picks below:

 Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF 50+ PA+++Sunprise Mild Airy Finish SPF 50

$14.00 --> $8.49

Great for all skin types, especially skin that is sensitive to sun damage. It is ultra-gentle yet keeps the skin protected and soothes the skin with centella asiatica extract and aloe vera. The milky texture absorbs quick into the skin, providing a soft and smooth satin finish.

Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun SPF 50+ PA++++

Missha Waterproof Sunscreen

$13.00 --> $9.75

This next sunscreen is on the thicker side, similar to Western sunscreens. It is waterproof so a sweaty summer day won’t melt off your sunscreen (less reapplying)! The formula includes zinc oxide, the most effective active sunscreen ingredient for sun protection. It does leave a white cast so it may be more suitable for the neck and body.

Etude House Soonjung Mild Defence Sun Cream SPF 49 PA++

Etude House Soonjung Sunscreen

$16.00 --> $12.00

Etude House’s Soonjung line is already generally well-known for its low-irritant formula and skin barrier protection. When the formula is made into a sun cream, it is moisturizing, great for sensitive skin and delicate areas of application, and it stays on the skin well. It also has sunscreen's most desired ingredient, zinc oxide.

Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++

Aloe Soothing Sun Cream

$16.00 --> $12.80

Hottest selling k-beauty sunscreen in 2020 goes to Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream! Not only is the sun cream formulated with aloe extract, it is extremely lightweight and leaves no white-cast or stickiness. Everyone says it feels just like a moisturizer, but with the SPF properties and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Elensilia Enchante Marine Energy Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA+++

Enchante Marine Energy Sun Gel

$24.00 --> $12.00

We love a sun gel that also treats skin concerns! Elensilia’s Enchante Marine Energy Sun Gel is infused with 1 million cristae marine stem cell, niacinamide, sea water, and dual-veil complex. This sun gel is super multi-functional; criste marine plant stem cell deeply hydrates sun-damaged skin and dual-veil complex provides complete UVA/UVB protection which some sunscreens lack. Nothing bad to say about this sun gel, it’s a MUST-BUY!

 

Stay safe and be healthy!
