I’ve been terrible at using sun cream in the past, but since moving to Korea, I find myself using it more and more. I live near Busan, where the weather is very similar to SoCal, so using sun cream is a must if you’re going to keep your skin healthy and safe.
I took a visit to the TonyMoly (in Homeplus) looking specifically for an all-in-one face & body sun cream. They had just what I needed, and there was a 1+1 deal!
It’s been a week since I purchased this product and I’m really enjoying it, so I decided to do a quick review!
A little background info about SPF and PA:
An SPF 50 product protects you from 98% of the UVB rays that penetrate the top layers of your skin. Note SPF 30+ still protects you from 97% of the UVB rays, so don’t worry if you can’t find your fave in SPF 50. PA protects your skin from UVA rays that penetrate into the skin’s thickest layer. PA+++ offers the best protection for your skin. PA+++ tends to be avail with more Asian brands, but it’s becoming more popular with western brands as well.
This product is SPF 50+ and PA+++. Aka, I’m getting the maximum protection most sun creams offer for my skin!
What I love most is how light it feels and that it massages clear onto my skin. With Korean facial sun creams, they tend to leave a whitish residue. It’s quite unflattering if you don’t have porcelain-white skin. However, with UV Master, when rubbing the cream onto my face, it didn’t leave any white residue!
I did notice slight residue marks on my arms, but it only happens when my skin is super dry, so it’s not a dealbreaker. Also, this product smells hella good! It has a lovely fragrant scent, unlike the usual sun cream smell we all know so well.
You can purchase this product at any TonyMoly store or visit www.TonyMoly.com. FYI – There is a 1+1 deal is still avail in store and online! For those outside of Korea, this item is available at yesstyle.com. The price is a little higher than what it sells for in Korea, but it’s worth it!

Until next time 🙂
