The sunscreen strugle is real
When you make the decision to take better care of your skin, your journey is likely to begin with sunscreen. It's the golden rule of youthful healthy skin. However, many people skip this step because lets face it most sunscreens suck. It might be a cardinal sin but I will admit to being one of those people. For me personally the benefits of sun protection never seemed to outweigh the constant clogged pores or the pasty white cast left behind. It took getting a painful sunburn for me to realize the error of my ways.
After my coming to Jesus moment I made it my mission to find a sunscreen that well- ya know... didn't suck. Honestly my expectation were not that high. My main goal was to find a simple SPF that did not irritate my skin and played well under my makeup.
For weeks I searched high and low, testing several different mainstream American brands. And week after week, they all produced the same lack luster performance and were eventually tossed in the bin. I was at the point of giving up on my sunscreen search when I came across two words that would forever change my outlook on sunscreen. And what were those magic words? Asian Beauty, to be more precise Korean Beauty.
eNTERING THE REALM OF ASIAN BEAUTY
Of course if you have been a skincare junkie for a while then those words are probably very familiar. But if you are fairly new to the world of skincare like myself, discovering Asian beauty was a complete game changer.
The Goodal Mild Protect Watery Sun Cream was my introduction into the world of Korean beauty. And boy was it a lovely intro. The moment I got my hands on this sunscreen I knew that it would be different then any sunscreen that came before. With ingredients like Moisturizing Cactus extract, Lotus Flower and Hyaluronic Acid the sunscreen feels more like a moisturizer than SPF. It also sinks into the skin seamlessly with an almost cooling effect.
Other benefits include its creamy but light weight texture. The Watery Sun Cream also has a nice fruity scent that is welcome departure from the usual American sunscreen scent. It also will never leave you with the dreaded white cast and works well as a base for makeup.
Goodal Mild Protect Watery Sun Cream Verdict: OVERALL RATING: 4/5
This sunscreen is near perfect, but I only have two real problems with it. The first is that it only offers mild protection from the sun. This would be a great sunscreen for a cloudy day or if you are going to put another product with additional sunscreen on top. Which brings me to the second bother with this sunscreen which is the price tag. While it does feel great on the skin Im not sure I can justify spending $30 on a sunscreen that doesn't offer max protection.
