We have all heard about the dangers of the sun, which could lead to skin cancer. A study shows one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer, and this number is growing due to increased ultraviolet exposure from the sun and tanning beds. Ask any doctors or any skin specialist…they would definitely insist you to wear sunscreen daily. By wearing sunscreen daily and over the days and months to shield your skin from the risk of various types of skin cancer, especially, melanoma. This is the worst type of skin cancers, which can be life threatening for women, particularly those who are in their 20s.
As that cancer frightened me, I decided to purchase Cosrx’s aloe soothing sun cream online. That was basically after I read a few recommendations from some of the beauty lovers I knew.
This cream is formulated with 5,500ppm of aloe leaf extract which not only protects our skin against UVA & UVB rays, but it moistens our skin. It is formulated with SPF 50+ PA+++ that blocks harmful rays from penetrating our skin and triggering skin disorders. This sun cream has light-weight texture, which absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling intensely hydrated without feeling greasy or looking flaky like some mineral sunscreens.
First thought…would this cream be compatible with my oily and sensitive skin?
After a few weeks applying this sunscreen on my face, my answer is… “YES! It is suitable for my sensitive skin”. The texture is very hydrating and smooth. It doesn’t irritates my skin and it doesn’t leave any white cast upon application. I wouldn’t need to apply a makeup primer as my makeup goes on nicely over it.
The Cosrx’s aloe soothing sun cream ingredients are:
