Review – Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super SPF 50 PA ++++
Hi guys! Today I would like to introduce you to another sunscreen which I’ve been using and also really liked a lot (a very close second to my holy grail!) – the Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super SPF 50 PA ++++ (seriously.. what is it with Japan and their weird super long product names?!). As usual, let’s check out its ingredients below.

How does the Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super fare?
As I’ve mentioned at the start of this post, I really liked this sunscreen. Firstly, it is a broad spectrum sunscreen providing both UVA and UVB protection and it is also SPF 50. Secondly, it has a very light watery texture typical of Japanese sunscreens, which means that I can use about 1/2 teaspoon (about 2.5 ml) for my face and neck without feeling like a sticky greasy mess. In fact, the texture of this product is even more runny than my favourite Shiseido Anessa sunscreen. Thirdly, it provides a nice base for my makeup without any whitish cast to my face. I’ve been really enjoying this sunscreen as the temperatures in Singapore rise even further because the texture is so light despite its protective powers.
I put this to the test by using it in the sun while on construction sites and I didn’t burn at all, or even turn pink. However, I did notice that I gained a little colour to my face which doesn’t usually happen when I use my Anessa sunscreen. Therefore, I like using this sunscreen at times when I’m just staying in the office the whole day or when I’m going out with my friends or family during the weekend where I’ll be mostly in the shade. In short, I highly recommend this product for daily use if you do not need to be in the sun too often.
Note: As this product is very water resistant, you’ll definitely need a makeup remover to remove it thoroughly.
Where can you find it?
