The Ultimate Asian Beauty Sunscreen Guide

Sunscreen is a hot topic in the group (and I’m so glad that you are taking steps to protect the skin from the sun!). Below is my humble attempt to organize the recommended sunscreens into categories. If I tried something myself and have a review, I’ll provide a link. Click on the store name links to go directly to the listing, click on the Review links to read a detailed review. If you have your own favorites, please comment below (and tell me why you love it).


This used to be a post in the group, however it's grown beyond the limits of Facebook formatting, and it made more sense to organize things in a blog post.


If you'd rather watch than read, check out this video review of 20 sunscreens or these tips for protecting your face and body.
