Review: Peach Sake Sunscreen Lotion SPF32 PA++ (UV Protection)

First product review from Whimsical Talks! :D

The packaging looks like the usual peach sake range by Skinfood.

Do you know why some sunscreen are named sunscreen lotion and some are sunscreen cream in Skinfood range of sunscreen?

There's a slight difference. For sunscreen lotion, moisturiser is added to it which makes it feels watery. Sunscreen lotion is not waterproof, so if you're using it for vigorous activities such as exercising or swimming, it's totally useless. The water washes it off completely. On the other hand, sunscreen cream are thick in consistency and they are waterproof. However, when it's waterproof, it means that it is likely to clog pores. Hence, sunscreen lotion or sunscreen cream, it is highly recommended to remove it with makeup remover or cleansing cream.

Does it look watery? Because it is!

Easy spreading due to its runny texture.

Slightly lighter tone after application.

I don't think there is anything special about this sunscreen apart from the fresh peach scent which encourages me to put this sunscreen on whenever I'm out. This sunscreen promise oil-control which I think it lacks. It doesn't feel sticky when applied on but if you say oil-control? Well, my face still oils like usual even after putting it. It's not waterproof, only suitable for indoor use, like in office and malls, places where you don't sweat at all.

So in conclusion,
I like it because: the scent!
I dislike it because: lack oil control.
