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?

Had high hopes

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 :(

Quite good for a sunscreen
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Eczema, Blackheads, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin

This sunscreen is very good if you have oily skin as this sunscreen dies down to a matte effect. I like the gel texture of this product. Doesnt make my skin greasier/oilier. But I don't think this is suitable for those who have dry skin. The only downside of this product is this product containts alcohol. Alcohol dries up my skin :\ But for a sunscreen, it does it job very well. Ive seen slight improvement. Recommended for those who can stand alcohol. Very good indeed.
