SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Tone Brightening Tone-Up Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ Review

This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Stylevana.

Testing sunscreens is my favorite thing - they are an essential part of my daily routine, and it doesn’t take too long to tell if I like the formula or not. I have tons of reviews to get out this year, so get ready!

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Tone Brightening Tone-Up Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ is available on YesStyle (reward code KBHOBBIT), Stylevana (code INF10KBH), and Jolse. It promises broad spectrum protection with sheer coverage for flawless skin and features Madawhite™ to help with imperfections and pigmentation.

How to use

Apply to exposed areas at the end of your morning routine

Reapply as needed

The formula is tinted and is supposed to fit most undertones while providing a natural finish. I don’t notice a scent.

My impressions

I thought I’d never meet SKIN1004 sunscreen I didn’t like, but there’s a first time for everything. Let’s start with the positives - this tone-up sunscreen is easy to spread and isn’t sticky. It doesn’t irritate the eyes. Mmmm… I think that’s it! Oh, the packaging is nice, but their other SPFs come in the same pump tubes.

I struggle to find too many redeeming qualities for this sunscreen. When I first saw it, I was cautiously optimistic since the tint looked somewhat peachy on my hand. I thought it would work well on my pale complexion - no, not so much. I get a pretty noticeable white cast, and the SPF stays dewy (but in a sweaty/sickly way) for hours and hours. It never gets any less shiny, even though it doesn’t feel sticky to the touch. I have an oily t-zone and am traumatized by years of battling my shiny, oily forehead - this sunscreen triggers me hehe. Honestly, it’s not a good look. And while translucent powder can deal with the oily appearance, it doesn’t do anything for the strange white cast.

I’m not quite sure what to do with this sunscreen. It likely won’t work for my friends - most have slightly darker skin tones than I do. Because it’s not sticky, it should work ok on the body, and Summer is just around the corner. Most likely, I will use it on my chest, neck and arms when I go on walks, or will possibly offer it to a friend for the same purpose. But as a face sunscreen this one is a fail.
