Having been left so let down by the Sisley Youth Protector, I thought I’d do a review on a sunblock that is now only a fraction of the price- almost 5% in fact!- at £6.50, this Innisfree sun cream is a real bargain. Innisfree is my very favourite Korean skincare brand. It’s affordable and tries to use as many natural ingredients as possible. My favourite perfume was from Innisfree- Sweet Touch of Joy- but sadly it is no longer in production 🙁 (Korean brands tend to change their products every few years.) I wish I could fly to Korea now to stock up on all my current faves!

Containing organic sunflower oil, it not only has a high sun proaction factor, does not result in breakouts, but also spreads quite easily without leaving a white cast. Moreover, it doesn’t feel too oily- although not 100% matt due to the high SPF- I personally feel it does not leave as much of an oily sheen on the face as the Sisley one did. (The cream actually looks a bit more yellow in reality than it does below) No wonder it has a 100% recommendation rate on the Innisfree website! 🙂

However, unlike my VERY fave sunblock, this version does not control oil. Innisfree also does an Eco Safety No Sebum sunblock which is pretty effective at keeping oil production down- the only downside is they had to reduce SPF to 35 to allow for that! I’m pretty surprised the No Sebum sunblock is still around- as mentioned, brands usually pull products off the shelves after a while- so it’s a sign of how popular that sunblock must be 🙂
