Cosrx Sunscreen Review

Korean Beauty: Cosrx Sunscreen Review

When I added retinol to my skincare, I needed extra sun protection. That’s when COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream came into play. It’s not just any sunscreen, it’s a hydration hero that complements retinol perfectly. With aloe vera for soothing and moisture, it shields my skin without feeling heavy or causing breakouts. This sun cream is now a non-negotiable in my routine, offering the perfect balance of protection and hydration while I enjoy the anti-aging benefits of retinol.

How I Tested Cosrx Aloe Sunscreen?

I rigorously test sunscreens for two weeks, applying them daily to evaluate their performance in various conditions, including outdoor exposure to sun, sweat, and water. The test also includes checking how well they layer with other skincare products and their compatibility with makeup. After this intensive evaluation, I gather a comprehensive understanding of the sunscreen’s effectiveness,

Here is Cosrx aloe soothing sun cream review:

Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF 50 PA+++ (50ml, 1.76Floz)

My overall score: 4.8 out of 5

Overall, the COSRX sunscreen is fantastic for my dry skin and a go-to choice for me, thanks to its easy application and lightweight feel on my skin. The only slight downside is that, when I’m at the beach, I need to reapply it more frequently due to its lightweight nature, but this is in line with dermatologists’ recommendations anyway. It’s a product I continually repurchase and one of my favorite sunscreen.

What I Like About COSRX Suncream:

  • Fast Absorption: It sinks into the skin quickly like a dream without leaving any residue, making it a hassle-free addition to my skincare routine.
  • No White Cast: The formula is invisible on all skin tones, which means it blends seamlessly without leaving any chalky appearance.
  • Non-Greasy Formula: I love how it moisturizes my skin without any oiliness or shine.
  • Non-comedogenic: It doesn’t clog my pores, significantly reducing the risk of breakouts, which is a major plus for my skin type.
  • Creamy Texture: The texture is just right—not too thick or runny, making it easy to apply evenly across my face.
  • Daily Use: It’s an ideal choice for everyday use, has physical and chemical filters offering reliable protection against UV rays without feeling heavy.

What I Don’t Like About COSRX Suncream:

  • Reapplication for Intense Sun Exposure: While it’s great for daily use, if I plan to spend an extended period in the sun, especially at the beach, I find that I need to switch to a heavier option like La Roche-Posay’s fluide for extra protection. This isn’t a major downside but something to consider for beach days or intense outdoor activities.

Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream texture

 It’s like whipping a fluffy cloud onto your face—super light and smooth. It absorbs quicker than a laugh at a dad joke, leaving no greasy or sticky memoirs behind. Your skin ends up feeling pampered and ready to face the sun, It’s skincare magic, really!

How Does It Smell?

It smells like aloe vera scent that I like because it’s refreshing. But if you prefer unscented sunscreen, this might not be for you.

How does it feel around the eyes?

I apply it all over my face, including under my eyes and on my eyelids, and it has never caused any stinging.

My Experience: 

I’m a big fan of COSRX suncream and use it every day. It sinks into the skin quickly without leaving any white cast, feels light without being greasy, and doesn’t block my pores. The texture is perfectly creamy, enough to stay put without dribbling away as I’m applying it, unlike other sunscreens.

I dot it around my face before spreading it evenly. It’s an excellent choice for daily use. However, for beach days, I switch to La Roche-Posay’s fluide spf 50 sunscreen. It’s a tad heavier but seems to offer that extra bit of protection I look for when I’m spending extended time under the sun.
