Today I’m going to talk about sunscreen products, especially being an Asian guy living in a high humidity climate, it’s very important to use a sunblock that is lightweight, does not feel tacky and heavy upon application.
Some sunscreen are prone to pore-clogging which may lead to breakout and some even have white thin film casting, all these were experiences from using mid-range to high-end skincare brands. So finally, I managed to found one particular product from The History of Whoo which is the Gongjinhyang: Soo Vital Hydrating Sun Fluid SPF50+/ PA+++ that met all the criteria.
What I like about this product, it is super lightweight and comfortable meanwhile able to provides long-lasting hydration and give you a refreshing feeling which is a great combo for all-year summer climate. And upon application, there will be a cooling effect, which makes it perfect for Asian guys living in high humidity climate, but don’t be confused with cooling effect as men’s product are well known to have menthol in it but this is not the menthol cooling effect you’re thinking of.
For those who wear makeup, you can see your makeup went on quite well on top of it. May it be with a primer or without primer, makeup glides smoothly over it. You can also mix your colored primer with this sunscreen as this is non-tinted, another trick that I’ve learned in order to color correct your skin tone effectively.
The texture is milky but super watery and lightweight. It absorbs immediately into your skin and you’ll feel a matte finishing. The scent, however, might turn off some people as it has a weird subtle soapy cum flowery scent but it won’t linger and disappear after some time.
I’m already on my 2nd bottle so you can imagine how committed I’m to this sunscreen. And I’ve gotten the special kit set with the same pricing that comes with Gongjinhyang Soo Soo Yeon Hydrating Foam Cleanser 40ml and Gongjinhyang Soo Soo Yeon Hydrating Overnight Mask 13ml which is worth your every penny.

This is a follow-up post from the previous review on Dr.Jart+ CRYO RUBBER™, I will be reviewing another version which is with Firming Collagen. For those that are unfamiliar with such mask, it’s using cryotherapy technology, thus the name derivation of the mask name. And cryotherapy technology is a treatment that lowers the skin’s temperature …
Feeling intrigued by the packaging, rubber mask, and freebies from Sephora Singapore, I’ve decided to give this a try. There are a lot of mixed reviews on this mask as this mask doesn’t’ come at a cheaper price tag. With only an ampoule and 1 rubber mask this cost S$21 each which other conventional sheet …
