Exclusively available at Watsons, this sunscreen from DHC surprised me with how easy it is to apply. Runny and very emollient, it goes onto my skin like a moisturiser and has an even, transparent finish – I appreciate that it doesn’t give off a white cast at all.
Though it has a moist quality to it and an almost-oily slip, it isn’t greasy or tacky. I’d peg the texture as a light moisturiser with some slip; the phrase ‘light touch’ in its name is no misnomer. :) As with many Japanese sunscreens, I believe it contains alcohol – the smell of it is fairly strong (I can’t verify this as I can’t locate the ingredient list). Despite this, the formula is such that it manages to preserve its moist feel.
Its glide and emollience afford me more play time with liquid foundations, especially drier ones. It can dry relatively fast in an air-conditioned environment (because of the alcohol?) but even then, it’s still fairly workable.
With my skin needing more hydration these days, I’ve been reaching for this sunscreen almost every day because it minimises the fine lines on my face. I love its feel too and enjoy how my foundations go well over it.
