Living on our side of the hemisphere means that the sun is always at its peak no matter the time of the year. We may be approaching the cooler months ahead, but we beauty lovers know that we shouldn't keep our guard down when it comes to sun protection.
So if you're on the lookout for a sunscreen that's of holy grail material, find out which made it into our Clozette Beauty Awards Panel's list.
The BIORÉ UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ is a definite fave, not just by the panel but by most beauty junkies in general. As Clozette Ambassador Ryan Sim puts it, "[It's] refreshing, featherlight, and offers strong sun protection."
On the other hand, if you're looking for a sunscreen that won't go tacky under your makeup, Clozette Editor Becks Ko recommends KIEHL'S Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA++++. She shares, "It's not too greasy to layer on top of my moisturiser and below my make-up. [It] finishes translucent so it does not disrupt my make-up routine after."
Clozette Ambassador Yen Ong threw in her bet into the bag: DIOR Diorsnow White Reveal UV Shield SPF 50 PA +++. If you want a reliable sunblock, this is one for the books. She says, "This fabulously lightweight, ultra-sensorial fluid leaves no white residue, and melts instantly into the skin."
If it's one of those days when you need to jet off to work or an immediate commitment, there's no excuse to miss out on your sun saver with Clozette Ambassador Alene Breddemann's recommendation, the DRGL Sun Protection Mist. "For lazy days, I'll just mist from top to toe and go," she gushes.
Last but not the least, Clozette Ambassador Cindy Tan pitches in her favourite in the form of CLARINS UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF50/PA++++.
Besides being lightweight and with broad spectrum SPF 50, this pick also boasts protection from the appearance of dark spots and speedy ageing caused by daily skin aggressors.
