Who hasn’t heard this before? “Please remember to apply your sunscreen every day, even when it’s cloudy outside.”
When I was in my teens, my mom would nag me, every single day. I was mostly frustrated because I didn’t understand why. I’d go “UGH!! yadah yadah yadah, enough already!” When I was studying in Australia, I didn’t apply sunscreen at all. When it was cold, I’d stand in the sun when I’d usually avoid them like a plague. When I came home, my mom noticed I have developed freckles. Truthfully, I thought it was cute. There were only a few. Little did I know, the freckles got worse. Only then, did I know my mom meant well, but it was too late. The freckles stuck with me until now. So whenever someone asked me if I was interested to write about sunscreens, I’d say yes. Ironically, Yadah shoved its sunscreen in my face. LOL!
Today, I show you a sunscreen by a Korean brand, called Yadah. What is different about this sunscreen? For one, there is no colouring or tints in this – zero pigment. No makeup remover is needed to remove this sunscreen. It is free of parabens, methanolamine, benzophenone, sulfate surfactant, mineral oil, tar colour, talc and propylene glycol. It is non-comedogenic and fragrance free. There are also a few good stuff in the ingredients, namely Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Lavender. These 3 natural ingredients help calm down the skin and they all have natural soothing effects.
For me, ingredients are not as important as how my skin reacts to it. My skin can tolerate alcohol, parabens and even silicones. What I can’t tolerate is a sunscreen that feels heavy and makes my face look shiny. I’m glad to report that Yadah Oh My Sunblock doesn’t do that. The texture is light and even with the amount I use, my skin doesn’t grease up. It absorbs rather quickly into my skin and the longevity of my makeup is not affected either. However, I do not apply my base makeup right after sunscreen. I usually wait about 10 minutes, blot my face, then apply my makeup. So, how much sunscreen do I use in one application? This much.
Is that too much? Nope. This much is needed to cover my face and my neck. It feels slippery at first, but after patting the sunscreen in, my face feels moisturized without being greasy. How much sunscreen do you use? Do you use sunscreen every day? I even use sunscreen when I’m in the house. It’s become a habit 🙂
You can find Yadah at Sasa, and this Yadah Oh My Sunblock SPF35 PA++ retails for RM49. It would’ve been perfect if it was SPF50 PA+++ though >_<
