We all know how important it is to wear a sunscreen on daily basis! Using sunscreen regularly has many benefits like protection against sunburn, reducing pigmentation and helping to prevent the early signs of skin aging. Today am going to review the Innisfree Sunscreen which was recommended by Utkarshini and am happy I bought it. Let’s head straight to the review.

The packaging of the cream is super compact to carry around and the cap fits tightly too. I like the packaging immensely. All the product information has been written in English on another sticker at the backside.
Coming to the product consistency it’s a creamy one and white in colour. Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ is a mix of physical and chemical actives to provide sun protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It provides UV Protection with 6 ingredients Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Octocrylene, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Titanium Dioxide
Now coming to the application part the cream looks thick and is yet very light weight and it sinks right into the skin after application. It absolutely doesn’t leave a white cast (has Titanium Dioxide so) and feels very feathery upon application.
Sometimes I use this sunscreen without using a moisturizer beneath and it works perfectly for me. It has silicone in it so it actually makes the skin feel smooth and soft without a moisturizer. I like using it during the winter season as it sweats a bit during the summer. It has mild protection so it is advised to use in winters or if you are not going to stay out in the sun for a long time. It find it perfect for my oily acne prone skin since it didn’t give me any breakouts neither does it make my skin oily after 4 hours. I haven’t tried reapplying this sunscreen since I don’t stay out in sun for a longer time. Although I am sure it wouldn’t be a problem if you reapply it on same layer as before. It will suit all skin types including oily acne prone skin. I like to use a light weight moisturizer beneath it and if am in a hurry I simply apply the sunscreen and am good to go.
Overall speaking I like the Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ Mild as a sunscreen in winters or when am home. Am about to finish my tube and will be repurchasing soon. Although sometimes it’s out of stock everywhere online so availability is a bit problem. I am looking for another sunscreen and once I get it I might stop using this one.
Price, Shelf life and Availability – 700 for 50 ml with a shelf life of 4 years. Available on Nykaa, Yesstyle
Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ Mild is a very good sunscreen option for oily acne prone skin. It neither leave a white cast nor makes my skin oily after 4 hours. Sometimes I skip moisturizer because this alone is enough for my oily skin. It makes the skin soft and smooth and feels very little on skin. I will be repurchasing it on discount, maybe on Nykaa.
