Holy grail sunscreen!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Large Pores, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

Before, I didn't like putting on sunscreen every single day because it tends to leave a white cast and is hard to even out. When I switched to this, I've never skipped sunscreen. It has a cooling effect, is easy to apply, and sits well under makeup. Although it doesn't give you a very matte finish, it makes your skin look healthy because of the slight glow it gives.

My fav sunscreen
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Large Pores, Uneven Skin Tone

I use this in the morning as a last step in my routine and reapply in the afternoon to combat the harsh Hawaiian sun. It applies nicely without white lines and doesn't glimmer like Edward in the sun.

Cheapest option is to get it directly from Japan, but it is also available on Prime for a little more. Switched from the La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS ULTRA LIGHT FLUID FACIAL Sunscreen, which would leave white streaks under contact points with my glasses.

No white cast as expected and it felt like a primer but I got red patches :(
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Large Pores, Uneven Skin Tone

Tried this product thrice (with a couple of days in between) and in all those times I got red itchy patches after a while. In all 3 tries, I didn't use other products on my face. It's unfortunate since this is very easy to put on, doesn't leave a white cast, smells nice, and it finishes like a primer. Too bad it didn't work for me. I didn't think I had sensitive skin but looking at the ingredients, this sunscreen should only have issues for sensitive skin. So I guess I have sensitive skin?
