Let’s talk SPF: favorites + recommendations

Author: Jenny Wu
Hi there!

  • Krystal

    I never go outside without sunscreen! I use the Missha BB cream most days for quick and light coverage, which has SPF 45++. Sometimes if the sun is going to be extremely strong or I know I’m going to be outside for most of it I wear extra sunscreen and even bring it with me to top up if I need it. Sunscreen is definitely a must wear everyday!

    Thanks for sharing your list. I’m going to check out those products :D

      I love Missha BB creams, especially the one in the pink/mauve bottle (can’t remember the name)! I carry a small tube in my makeup bag for touch ups as well!

  • Elena

    Thank you for this post! I am so bad at buying new sunscreens. I really need to get one for my face, and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer with Sunscreen sounds great.

    • Jenny

      You’re welcome Elena! I hope you like the La Roche-Posay sunscreen as much as I do!

  • Liv

    Ooo I’m so glad you wrote this post because I was looking for a sunscreen and not sure which one to get! Sunscreen is definitely essential for better skin, especially since most people probably don’t realize they need it. (I realize it’s terrible I don’t wear it yet.) I’m going to order the Biore one now since we seem to have a similar skin type.

      Glad to hear this post helped!! Biore Japan makes some seriously incredible sunscreens, they also have a SPF35 one which is really good for mostly indoor use.

  • Michelle

    I’m looking for a very good sunscreen at least with SPF 30 because I burn easily. Thanks for the recommendation. Skin care is very important in the summer.

      You’re welcome Michelle, hopefully you’ll find a product that works well for you! One thing I’d definitely recommend is to reapply the sunscreen regularly (every 2 hours or immediately after you’ve been in water) – this helped me stay tan-free and burn-free during my Vegas trip last summer!
