HG sunscreen, moisturizer, primer ALL IN ONE!!

This is my go-to sunscreen! It does not only protect your face from the sun's harmful rays, it also moisturizes and refreshens your skin! I love its watery consistency because it makes it easier for my skin to absorb and it's not sticky at all! I also use this as primer or make up base and there is no white cast for me whatsoever. It also helps control my oiling up. So it's no wonder it's always sold out!!

Nice and lightweight sunscreen

I'm super picky with sunscreens but this one I actually really like. It's so easy to apply and gets absorbed immediately. This is NOT greasy or heavy, unlike other sunscreens that leave my face (and fingertips) an oily/sticky mess. Best of all, I don't get that white cast effect on my face with this sunscreen. Overall, great quality for an equally great product.

Perfect sunblock for Manila weather

I bought this as a sunblock for my face when going to the beach. I then discovered that this sunblock is perfect for everyday use as well especially in the heat and humidity of Manila weather. I love that this product is worth every peso, does not cast "white" when photos are taken, has no greasy after-feel, very lightweight and has cooling effect. My husband is using this as an everyday sunblock and he has already used up one tube. Inexpensive but high-quality Japanese products truly do not disappoint!

High hopes squashed down

I had high hopes for this product because of the reviews I saw here. But it didn't cope with my expectations. I had breakouts because of this. Also, whenever I put it, I have to put an extra layer of bb cream because this product makes my skin look dull. I have to put foundation or cream on top of this as well as powder. I can't go out with my bare face like I used to because this makes my face more oily and more dull looking. On top of that, I feel haggard looking. There are pimples that were born overnight when I used this whole day even if I clean my face before sleeping. Also, this have a menthol-cool feeling when you put it on your face. It makes me itch a little. Be careful not to put something on your lips or put it close to your eyes. It stings, honestly. I don't know for the others, but this is what I experience. Not gonna buy again.

The best sunscreen

It's lightweight AND mattifying––I tend to have a shiny forehead, but when I dab a little of this, it disappears. A tiny drop goes a long way. I use this almost everyday and I'm still on my first bottle from over a year ago, so it's definitely long lasting! Can't recommend this enough.

Best sunscreen X moisturizer ever! It blends smoothly, doesn't leave a white cast, doesn't make my face feel sticky, doesn't cake up bb creams or foundation and gives a cooling effect (perfect for our humid weather). So glad that it has a high SPF and will surely protect my face from harmful sun rays. Super worth it! I'll definitely buy another one <3
