Skincare talk : Sunscreen
Assalamualaikum girlssssss (and boys too)
Is it 18 Ramadhan already?! Surely it went so fast when you’re older. I just got back home from teraweeh and I wanted to share about this one important item for our skin : Sunscreen.
I know, I know. Some of you might think “alah sunscreen je pun?? Beli je la and then pakai???” But for me, choosing the right sunscreen has been a challenge for me since forever.. Sebab my skin is sooo sensitive. I triedd soooo many sunscreen but my skin kept reacting. For my oily-combination-sensitive-acne-prone it’s quite hard to choose. Pernah guna yang jenis gel punya, tapi dia jadi sticky throughout the day, pakai yg anti sebum punya, dry patch appears, pakai cream formula, white cast (muka kelabu lol) Until one point I stopped wearing any sunscreen sebab kecewa hahaha
Why is sunscreen important? Malas nak bebel panjang2 tapi bagi aku ada tiga:
- kurangkan risiko pigmentation, bila tengok cermin tetiba nampak that little pigmentation spot, i iz die inside
- combat wrinkles!!!!
- taknak muka belang (hijab sisters u got me?)
So I kept searching and read many reviews and most of them lead to high end sunscreen. For me splurge for skincare tu relevant but if it exceeds your budget takpayah la k. Especially for students. Sampai la terbaca pasal product named Glossier. Dia baru keluarkan sunblock dia yg macam letops gila sebab it’s serum like and transparent! Pastu marketing cool gila, tapi tengok harga…nope. Lepastu me being me, cari punya cari punya cari, jumpa satu brand Korea ni, make p:rem. Website dia sini tapi it’s in Korean la sobs
“Fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots from photoaging can be prevented with daily use of a high SPF sunscreen. Make P:rem’s Capsule Sun Gel gives you the best of both worlds, providing superior sun protection while letting you say goodbye to greasy, pore-clogging sunscreens and white casts (OMG THIS). This innovative sunscreen gel dries clear for all skin tones. It’s formulated with birch sap and sea buckthorn, ivy leaf, and sunflower seed extracts to lightly moisturize and nourish the skin as SPF 50+ protects from sun damage. This mattifying sun gel works perfectly under makeup and can be used as a perfecting primer. Ideal for all skin types, especially combo and oily skin.” –Glowrecipe.com

Kenapa best? As the description says, boleh guna jadi primer, and no white cast. Trust me, this thing under makeup: dewy finish. Smells fresh and dia macam serum so it’s easily absorbed to the skin. Plus, it’s seriously moisturising but not oily 🙂
Siapa yang kulit dia kuat meragam ha try la this. For my friends in Japan you can try this kalau rasa-rasa taknak pakai product with strong chemical pastu nanti boleh selfie banyak2 time hanabi ahaks
Thanks for reading! I hope this helps you in any way 🙂
