Finding the perfect sunscreen is an endless struggle. I’m really picky about the products I put on my face because my skin doesn’t tend to like things that are heavily scented or contain alcohol. Unfortunately, most sunscreens fall into both of these categories so irritation and dryness inevitably ensue. The COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream has been on my radar for a little while as I’d heard it was really moisturising and gentle. I finally got round khổng lồ buying it & here are my thoughts…


What is it?

The COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is a sun protectant that does more than just shielding us from dangerous UV rays. It hydrates our skin too! The star of the show, the aloe extract, is said khổng lồ reduce skin sensitivity & aid moisture retention.

How should you use this product?

I normally use this as the last step of my skincare routine. After my moisturiser has dried down a little, I’ll squeeze a bit of this sunscreen out onto my fingers và dot it around my face. It’s quite creamy so I find that it blends out really well. It also applies super nicely over makeup if you need to vị trí cao nhất up throughout the day.

How vày I feel about…?

THE SCENT

I actually quite lượt thích the scent of the COSRX sun cream. It doesn’t have an overwhelming alcohol smell like some other face sunscreens tend khổng lồ have. I don’t know how lớn explain it but it also doesn’t have that traditional sunscreen scent. It just kind of smells fresh, lượt thích a moisturiser rather than a sun protectant.

THE TEXTURE & FINISH

I looooove the texture of this. In fact, it might be my favourite thing about this sun cream. It’s creamy và thick so it doesn’t run off the skin. It also blends like a dream, giving your skin a really nice glow afterwards.

I haven’t noticed any white cast, but since I’m quite pale it would be difficult lớn spot this anyway!

THE PACKAGING

The packaging is quite plain. The product comes in a simple trắng tube with a black cap. A couple of the key ingredients are printed on the front too.

I know many argue that COSRX packaging can be a little clinical looking. For a sunscreen though, I think this is fine. It’s a functional necessity so it doesn’t need to lớn be super fancy.

THE SUSTAINABILITY ASPECT

Ethical: COSRX is a cruelty-free brand & none of its products are tested on animals anywhere in the world.

Environmental: In terms of packaging, the COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream seems to lớn be recyclable. Both the tube & cap are made from polypropylene which is widely accepted. However, you’ll have to check with your local authority whether black plastic can be recycled.

Overall thoughts

This would honestly be my all-time favourite sunscreen if there wasn’t one thing stopping me from giving it a perfect score. Và that’s the pilling. While it initially blends out và sits well over other skincare products, I find that over time it does start to lớn ball up và flake off. I don’t know whether this would be different if I change the toner, essence or moisturiser I put on underneath. But I am using the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin power Essence at the moment, so it would be strange for the brand’s own products to lớn work against each other.

Other than that, this sun cream is amazing. My skin can be pretty reactive & I didn’t notice any sensitivity or breakouts when wearing this. I also really did feel lượt thích my skin was softer và more hydrated when I had this on.

I’d definitely buy it again but, because of the pilling, I think I’ll stick lớn wearing it on at-home, no-makeup days.

EDIT: I’ve tried out this sunscreen a bit more & I’ve noticed that the pilling is largely down to lớn the moisturiser you use underneath. I decided to try it out with CeraVe’s Moisturising Cream & I actually didn’t experience any pilling with this at all. So (I could be wrong but) I think that using a moisturiser that contains silicones (e.g. Dimethicone) is the solution!!


Where can I buy it?

You can pick this up at quite a few UK retailers. It sells for around £12.50 at Pure Seoul, Skinsider & Beauty&Seoul (this one’s actually £11.50 atm). If you buy it from Feelunique or Beauty bay it’s going to lớn set you back £22.
