CosRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++ Review
This post contains affiliate links.
I’m not a very “high maintenance” person - I can live without makeup, jewelry, long baths, or any number of other things. But I cannot and will not live without sunscreen. I did my full skincare routine before heading to the birth center to have my son, and I applied sunscreen before leaving there to bring him home. I take my SPF seriously.
While I usually prefer mineral-only sunscreens, lately I’ve been branching out into hybrid and chemical filter formulas. I wanted to have a more well-rounded pool from which to draw product recommendations for my audience.
One of my current sunscreens is CosRx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++, provided by GlowieCo (save 10% with code kbhobbit10 on anything from their website - they ship from California and carry a curated collection of kbeauty, jbeauty, and tbeauty). The product is also available on YesStyle (use reward code KBHOBBIT for extra savings), Amazon, and eBay.
This sunscreen uses a combination of physical and chemical filters. The lightweight formula promises to absorb quickly without a white cast. CosRx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is cruelty free and vegan.
How to use
Apply generously before sun exposure
Don’t forget your ears and sides of the neck
I have combination skin with some oily and some dry areas. I prefer and matte finish overall, however some “dew” is ok with me as long as it doesn’t look greasy.
I’m pleasantly surprised by this CosRx sunscreen. I like the scent and how easy the product spreads on the skin. There is no white cast and no stickiness. It works well under makeup or by itself. I usually skip other moisturizers if I’m using this sunscreen. When set with translucent powder, I get the desired matte finish.
If I skip the powder, my skin has a healthy glow without looking oily. It’s not my preferred look, but it’s also not a deal breaker by any means. I think people with dry skin or those who like a healthy glow will appreciate this formula. And while it’s hard for me to guarantee no white cast (I am quite pale), I hope this would go on clear even on deeper skin tones.
Overall, this is a very good option, even for people who don’t like to wear spf. It doesn’t smell like sunscreen, isn’t sticky, doesn’t have a white cast - it’s like wearing a very nice moisturizer that just happens to protect the skin from premature aging. And while I try not to lecture strangers online, I feel compelled to mention that sun protection is needed daily, not just on the beach. UVA rays are present all year long and can age the skin, no sunburn necessary.
