fully protect your face from sun but it's too watery for oily skin, just like me.
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Large Pores, Uneven Skin Tone

from the texture it's totally great.
its not too sticky but not too watery.
when you apply to your face you would feel like you get your face under shower bathroom.
it's totally great until i realize its too much "water" at my face
and it become too hydrating for my face
and so more acne in my face too
so i'll say this sunscreen is totally-abolutely-damn good for dry skin
for people of dry skin you guys should try it! i wish i have that kind of face too.

Is it really alcohol free?
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Blackheads, Large Pores, Dehydrated Skin

I highly doubt the ingredient accuracy here because I have the 2018 version and the Chinese ingredient list has alcohol on it and ranked pretty high. Also, simply the smell of it gives a strong alcohol scent. Unless they made a significant change in ingredients this year?

I'm too disappointed on this one :( I carefully chose which sunscreen to try next after finishing my derma-prescribed face sunscreen. I read reviews, checked the comments of those who rated it between 1-2 stars. My face is finally free from pimple before using this one or adding this to my routine, that's why I'm sure that this is the culprit of my now-broke-out face :'( I really shouldn't have tried this since I also had an awful experience with Biore's UV Face Milk SPF50+ :'( I have a sensitive combination acne-prone skin, btw :(
