How much it costs?

It’s a really affodable sunscreen for 140g you will pay only 21$ and I think this is very resonable because this quantity if you apply and reapply daily it will last you 4-5 months.

What type of sunscreen it is?

Chemical sunscreen: diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate, dimethicone, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethylhexyl triazone sodium hyaluronate.

What type of skin should wear this?

They say all skin types, but I will recommend these to a combo-oily acne prone skin.

My thoughts:

Nivea Japan Sunscreen has a very watery gel texture ; if you’ve tried the InnisFree balancing lotion, it’s the same kind of somewhat moisturising, gelly-like consistency; it’s just viscous enough for you to apply on your face but still easy to apply.

It dries rapidly (since it contains alcohol), but it’s also marketed as a base for makeup, but it may be used all over the body.

It’s available in two sizes: 80g and 140g, and it’s frequently bundled with larger orders in a little little extra bottle.

Personally, I prefer the 80g due to the packaging and the lack of a pump top, but the 140g is clearly a better value (in terms of prices) The 140g is often a similar price to the 80g, as shown in the illustration, but it is not as convenient to travel with. As a result, I prefer the 80g, although you may obviously choose whatever one you like.

Why I would recommend this sunscreen in the end, especially to individuals who wear a lot of make-up and are concerned that traditional sunscreens may clog pores or look horrible on their skin tone: This is such an excellent base product.

Because of the alcohol base, it dries rapidly without being overly drying, and it doesn’t leave your skin glossy or tacky.

This means you may apply foundation as usual without fear of overdoing it or worrying about how the makeup will sit on top of the sunscreen.

Ingredients list:

Water, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethanol, PG, dimethicone, ethylhexyltriazone, hexyl diethylaminohydroxybenzoyl benzoate, sodium hyaluronate, phellodendron bark extract, quince seed extract, tocopherol acetate, (Acrylate / alkyl acrylate (C10-30)) ) Crosspolymer, Carbomer, Setes-10, Na Hydroxide, BHT, Methylparaben

A perfect 10/10 and a must-try for anyone who dislikes traditional sunscreens or wants to try something new!

Affordable drugstore skincare products under 17$

Hi friends! Because I’ve saw how much you liked my previous post where I’ve showed you my favourites affordable products under 15, here is another post with some drugstore products that I’m constantly using recently.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum from The Inkey List

This quickly absorbed super serum hydrates your skin and helps it appear plump and smooth while decreasing the appearance of fine wrinkles.

best skincare products, order of skincare products, affordable drugstore products, skincare products for acne, skincare products for men

The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid serum comes in a 30ml container, which is the first thing I’d want to point out. The plastic bottle is both compact and practical. The cover features a simple press-down flip-top mechanism. There aren’t any fancy glass bottles or droppers like in The Ordinary.

The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid includes 2% hyaluronic acid with three different molecular weights, hydrating your skin at various degrees depending on how far it can sink. This aids the product’s effectiveness on your skin.

In addition to hyaluronic acid, The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid contains the peptides Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-1, which together produce Matrixyl 3000, a collagen-boosting substance. This indicates that the hyaluronic acid in this serum is a little greater than your average hyaluronic acid serum.

best skincare products, order of skincare products, affordable drugstore products, skincare products for acne, skincare products for men

The consistency is a transparent, viscous lotion. In a hyaluronic acid serum recipe, this isn’t unusual.
Before applying to my skin, I normally put around 2-3 drops (The Inkey List advises a pea-sized amount, and it’s approximately that) into the palm of my hand.

Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

Sensibio H2O is the first and only dermatological micellar water that is completely skin-friendly: its fatty acid esters, which are micelle constituents, are similar to the phospholipids found in skin cell membranes and help to naturally rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

best skincare products, order of skincare products, affordable drugstore products, skincare products for acne, skincare products for men

Bioderma Sensibio H2O is surprisingly silky and soft compared to other cleansing fluids I’ve tested. As a result, applying it feels a touch opulent, which I love in a nighttime regimen. It removes makeup (though you may need to use a bit more than normal if it’s a heavy-duty formula) and hydrates skin better than a face wash, but its major selling point is its complete lack of irritation.

Vichy – Vichy Capital Soleil UV-Age Daily Sun Fluid SPF50+ PA++++

Vichy has a multi-patented Netlock technology that keeps the SPF in place. Actives from Dermalogical Skincare are incorporated to assist improve the skin’s barrier. 1 percent Vitamin E, 4% Peptides Complex, 2% Niacinamide, 10% Vichy Volcanic Mineralizing Water (the water is said to assist ease inflammation), and Probiotic (Bacterial) segments, for example.

Sunscreen Filters: Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Drometrizole Trisiloxane, Terephthalylidene Dicamphor Sulfonic Acid

Key Ingredients: 2% Niacinamide (Skin brightening + Skin-barrier reinforcing + Anti-acne – Dark Spots and Fine Line reducing). 4% Peptides (Helps improve the overall look of the skin). Probiotic fractions (smaller parts) – helps improve the skin’s barrier. 10% Vichy Volcanic Water (supposedly anti-inflammatory).

This is a wonderful, fluid texture that is both light and airy. It isn’t so light that it disappears completely once absorbed/rubbed into the skin, but it is light enough that it isn’t irritating and allows my skin to breathe. This also gives my skin a smoother appearance. It’s definitely hydrating, and as you can see, the result is more dewy than matte.

Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Women Smoothing Night Cream

A panel of women aged 20 to 35 years old with acne-prone skin, blemish-prone skin, and hormonal acne received Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Women Corrective Serum and Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Women Smoothing Night Cream from Beauty Crew.

Also it immediately reduce the redness on the first application, and within two days of using it, you’ll feel like your skin is totally repaired!

CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser

For a month I tested the new @cerave Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser that is formulated to be ultra-mild, yet effective in cleansing the skin of dirt, oil and pollution with moisturising the skin. 💦

Specifically formulated for?

This foaming formula is suitable for delicate skin and skin prone to mild eczema. It contains 3 ceramides to help strengthen and maintain the skin barrier, and triglycerides and squalane oil to help replenish natural skin’s lipids, suitable for normal to dry skin on the face of body.

You’ve seen on my IG that I am a big fan of Cerave, and I was really excited to try their new product.

Some of my favourite points about this product:

  • the texture is gel-like and really hydrating without dry out my skin
  • one pump is enough for my whole face, neck and chest
  • it is good for double cleansing and every day use
  • the quantity for the price 26.99 $ for 473 ml

The only thing I would note is that you’ll still have to use a separate makeup remover, as this isn’t that effective as dissolving makeup and definitely won’t help you take off the waterproof mascara !

This is a nice gentle everyday cleanser, without any irritation. It is also fragrance free, a huge plus. 🤍

My top 3 affordable drugstore sunscreens

Who doesn’t love affordable drugstore products that works? I think everybody ! Today I am gonna to talk about my top 3 favourites sunscreens that which I always rebuy because they work great for my oily acne prone skin but they will definetely work on a combo skin as well.

3 drugstore sunscreens on a white table . In the backround you can see a sunflower

@eauthermaleaveneromania very high protection Dry Touch Fluid SPF 50+ – is a facial sunscreen suitable for normal to combination skin that is effective against both UVA and UVB. This formula has been designed to be very water resistant and to regulate sebum production, thanks to its content in Monolaurin. The ultra-fluid texture ensures that the skin stays matte throughout the day and Avène Thermal Water soothes any irritations. Characteristics Dry touch ultra fluid emulsion; Very water resistant; Paraben-free.

This sunblock comes in a pump bottle that it makes very easy to dispense.The moment I applied this it left a little bit of white cast but after 20 minutes it tones down and I can not spot it anymore. It set quite quickly so I had to apply it fast, I didn’t notice any pilling the finish is semi-matte which I really like !

I kinda liked it under makeup, but I can’t say it’s my favourite sunscreen under makeup.It doesn’t sting my eyes at all, cuz you know how sensitive they are and I did not experienced any irritation or breakouts from using it. Doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and absorbs almost immediatelyOffers a really good oil control, my face remain matte for like 4-5 hours.

Contains 4 UV filters: Tinosorb M, S, Uvasorb HEB, Avebonzone and it doesn’t contains fragrance which I like very very much! It costc only 12 $ so I think is a fair price for 50 ml.


@altruistsun Altruist Dermatologist SPF50 Light Face Fluid is a broad-spectrum, dermatologist facial sunscreen created to provide superior protection, in a moisturising super-light transparent formula suitable for daily use. Enriched with Vitamin E to help prevent cellular damage from UV induced free radicals, to reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature skin ageing. Suitable for use under make-up or after shaving.

This is a hybrid sunscreen it contains both chemical and physical UV filters ( Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane; Ethylhexyl Salicylate; Octocrylene; Titanium Dioxide (Nano); Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid; Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (Nano); Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine; Ethylhexyl Triazone) .

It has a lightweight texture, it gets absorbed into the skin very fast, absolutely no white cast and the finish is a little bit dewy, but I like it is very natural, and it look very nice on the skin when you reapply it. I did not see any pilling and also stays very nice under the makeup.

The only thing that I do not like is that stings my eyes really really bad, so if you have sensitive eyes use another sunscreen around them. What I’ve learned is that Octocrylene filtere is the cause for the feeling of stinging. I only buy this because I know that is safe and it look very good on my skin and is also really afforrdable. This is also an unscented sunscreen, 50 ml for 10.55 $

Aqua, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Glycerin, Octocrylene, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Titanium Dioxide (Nano), Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Panthenol, Tris-Biphenyl Triazine (Nano), Aminomethyl Propanol, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Phenoxyethanol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Alumina, Titanium Dioxide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Decyl Glucoside, Simethicone, Butylene Glycol, Piroctone Olamine, Disodium Phosphate, Diethylhexyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Xanthan Gum, Silver Chloride, Propylene Glycol.

@larocheposay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 30 – is a daily facial sunscreen that offers very high protection against the harmful effects of solar radiation. It has a minimalist and hypoallergenic formula. Specifically developed for sensitive skin it should suit any and all skin types. With a unique combination of antioxidants and sunscreen filters, it offers broad and photostable protection against solar radiation. It has the ability to not only protect the skin from UVA, UVB and infrared rays but also from oxidative stress. In addition, its formula has a unique technology that makes this sunscreen ultra-resistant to water, sweat and sand. Besides all this, its texture is also ultra-light and non-greasy, gliding easily over the skin without creating a feeling of discomfort and unsightly white marks. And the best part? It’s also suitable for the eye contour area, as the minimal formula won’t sting the eyes.

La Roche Posay Shaka Fluid is like a lightweight serum to me that gets absorbed very easily into the skin , has watery texture and I could easily spread it across my skin and rub it in easily. No sticky feeling left on my skin, my skin remains quite refreshed and hydratated after I am using this sunscreen. I also like that this sunscreen is water/sweat resistent.

I do not like that it contains fragrance and is quite strong but if you do not like fragrance in products you can choose the La Roche Posay Anthelios Shaka Fluid SPF 50+ 50ml the unscented version ( I think I will chose this next time). The quantity is 50 ml and the price is a little bit higher than the other two 15 $.
