Best 1: Goodal Mild Protect Sunscreen
I’ve written about Goodal Mild Protect before on my post for 5 Best Asian Sunscreens for Oily Skin. This continues to be a top choice by Koreans in 2016, and for good reason: it leaves you with a wonderfully matte skin and amazing coverage.
This truly mild sunscreen is chemical free, includes fermented Prickly Pear to protect skin, has a high content of vitamins and antioxidants, and is lightweight and moisturizing.
Best 2: Dr. Jart Ctrl-A Sunscreen
Dr. Jart is a more luxury product gaining more traction outside of Korea now for its consistently good reviews. The new Ctrl-A line is also picking up speed, but is unfortunately a little harder to find (even the official Dr. Jart site doesn’t list it for the U.S.) But, this is a misturizing sunscreen that’s good for all skin types (including sensitive). It’s not sticky, either.
Best 3: Lancome UV expert XL
International designer brands continue to be immensely popular in Korea, like Lancome’s UV Expert XL BB cream. UV Expert protects against UV and more, along with protecting from aging and formation of dark spots.
The BB cream corrects any skin issues, just apply some powder on top to set it and you’ll look flawless all day.
Buy at Sasa $52
Best 4: Dr. G Brightening Line
Dr.G may be a brand you’ve never heard of, but this sunscreen is in the top 4 in Korea because of its skin brightening effects and its non-oily, non-sticky and smooth finish.
