This is a chemical sunscreen and all 4 UV filters are next-generation filters commonly found in Korean and European sunscreens. They are Tinosorb M , Uvinul T 150, Uvinul A plus and iscotrizinol. If you will like to learn more about these great UV filters, here is a great article for that.
I have been using this sunscreen for about two months now and I’m already on my second tube so here is all I have to say about it.
Where to buy
I got mine from Stylekorean in a 1+1 set. Stylekorean is my go-to place for Korean skincare products because they have the best prices and all their products are 100% authentic.
you can also get it from:
The packaging is minimal and aesthetic. It comes in a squeeze tube with a screw-on cap. The only downside is that the tube gets wrinkly and harder to squeeze as you’re about to finish the product. If you’re like me and you love to cut open your tube products to get every last bit, then you have no problem with this.
Scent and texture
When I first got it, I applied it on my hand just to feel the texture and smell it. It has zero noticeable scents which I really appreciate and it’s also alcohol-free. As for the texture, it felt like lotion and was very easy to blend. I was shocked!
The following morning, I decided to try it on my face. When I first applied it all around before blending it, I noticed a purple tint. I was kind of panicking because I have a light brown skin tone so I thought maybe it wasn’t black girl-approved. But when I blended it in, I noticed that the purple tint was gone. It was very lightweight almost like I wasn’t putting on any sunscreen. The sunscreen was very moisturizing and has a satin finish with Minimal shine. I was very impressed.
The Beauty Of Joseon relief sun doesn’t sting the eye and it’s great for reapplication but unfortunately, it’s not water resistant. If you sweat a lot or leave in a sunny, humid area, this might not be the sunscreen for you. and yes, it didn’t break me out.
Final verdict on the Beauty Of Joseon relief sun
From my experience, I have to say this sunscreen is 100% worth the hype. It’s a great everyday sunscreen for all skin types and sometimes, I skip moisturizing in the morning and use the sunscreen because that is moisturizing enough.
Will I repurchase?
Absolutely! Although I like the cosrx aloe soothing sun cream, I think I like this even more. I can see myself using this a lot during the colder days because of the moisturizing effect and how lightweight it is.
