Most of us think that sunblocks are white, thick and would make the skin oily thinking it might not be appropriate to use to face on an everyday basis - As well as use it under makeup.
As I was looking inside Watson's Shop, I compare several face sunblock and it's really hard to choose if you have several options to try considering the price, size, SPF, brand name, etc. Some sunblocks that contain ultra high SPF usually have higher levels of active ingredients making it feeling heavier. I'm also worried that I might end up to those sunblocks that I discuss before. Most sunblocks are sealed and do not have testers, I'm lucky and I'm fine that I choose Kojie San Sunblock Face with SPF 50.
Kojiesan Sunblock for Face has a broad spectrum of protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays to prevent sunburn and premature skin ageing. It contains SUNACTYL, a natural ingredient, which helps repair sun-damaged skin. Infused with caring ingredients such as Shea Butter andVitamin E to help nourish and smoothen skin.

Broad Spectrum: Some sunscreens do not protect you against both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are the ones responsible for making you turn pink or red in the sun, also known as sunburn. UVA rays are the nasty ones responsible for getting down into the underlying layers of skin causing wrinkling, aging, and in some cases skin cancer. Choose a sunscreen that protects from both UVB and UVA (also referred to as “broad spectrum”. Lucky for us greenies, the primary ingredients in natural sunscreens, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide both provide broad spectrum protection. (Read more about it: SkinCancer.org). The FDA changed the law and this year sunscreens will be required to label their products as broad spectrum or place a warning label. Make sure you look for the Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB wording on labels. [source: SafeMama]
