Review: Kojie san Sunblock SPF 50 PA+++

I am not into sunblock, but since I got free sachets of Kojie San Sunblock from the recent 7-Eleven fun run, I did not hesitate to use them. Each sachet has 3 grams content, and its scent and texture is similar to other brands in the market. When I checked its price in the store, it ranges from 200 to 300 pesos.

When it comes to sunblock, my personal preference is something that is matte. I do not need any product that adds oiliness to my oily and dry skin. hahaha! Before, I used a gel sunblock on my face and it has a cooling and matte effect. I stopped using it when the price went pretty high.

I already used all the sachets and I must say that this is worth a try. Kojie san sunblock is a bit oily but lighter in my face. The oiliness can be removed by putting a powder after it. Also, this one  does not give me an "instant white" look.  Mostly, the heavier or sticky sunblock is the one used as a foundation base for the makeup and gives you a whiter skin.

There's also quite an imperfection with it such as no moisturizing effect. I just felt rather disappointed on this because it features at the back of the label that Shea butter is one of the ingredients.  As we all know, shea is a good humectant and at the same time emollient. It just did not work out the way shea should be.

If you ask me if it provides sun protection, I do not know. Most of the time, I am engrossed in front of the computer. Even so, I think that sunblock is a must especially in a tropical country like us. If I am going to another fun run, I will buy one. My overall experience with it is good.
