SunKiller Whitening Water Sunscreen
Price: Approx $10 CAD (online)
Features: Beauty essence ingredients, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, waterproof, non-scented, no dyes.
Let’s start off with the simple things, this sunscreen has high SPF and is incredibly light in texture. As you can see from my swatch, it’s a very watery formulation that spreads easily on the skin. As with many Japanese light waterproof face products, the bottle needs to be shaken up well before use so all the ingredients will mix together. If you don’t, you’ll end up with a layer of clear liquid and blobs of white sunscreen.
It’s unfortunate that I forgot to save the packaging so I can at least provide the ingredients list (like I usually do) but from what I remember this a is mineral oil free product because my skin would have already reacted horridly by now which it hasn’t, thankfully. As for the skincare ingredients, I do find that the hyaluronic acid and vitamin E additives prevented my skin from drying out during the day, however even with continued use I have yet to see any whitening improvements. I’d say that this is a very basic and gentle everyday sun care product that’s great for continuous use for both men and women. The unscented factor will make it seem less girly plus it’s small enough to pop into any makeup or shaving bag.
- High SPF factor with no noticeable white cast (however do note that I am on the paler side of the spectrum to begin with).
- Skincare ingredients keep skin comfortable, physical sunscreen protection.
- Super milky/light texture, non scented, no breakouts or adverse reactions even with daily use.
