COSRX is definitely one of my favorite Korean beauty skincare line. Every product from this company has brought my skin and I great joy. I can go on for days about why I love this line but I will save it for another day or another post. Today I would like to take a little time to review the only SPF COSRX has formulated, Aloe soothing sun cream SPF 50+.

Infused with 5,500ppm of aloe leaf extract, this aloe soothing sun cream not only improves the skins moisture barrier it also protects against sunburn damage.

HOW TO USE IT

HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
February 2017 to April 2017
Yes, it has a mild fragrance
I would recommend this to dry skin
All skin types should use sunscreen but this sunscreen would work great with anyone suffering from sun burn or compromised skin barrier.
A plastic squeezable tube.It’s easy to get product out and easy to carry out
Yes, but for my skin type I would use it only during the winter months.
It is very moisturizing.It felt great on my skin during the winter months when my skin need the extra moisture because of the harsh weather.
It did not break me out
You don't need a lot , a little goes a long way
This sunscreen did not burn/irritate my skin or eyes
Good price point
It did not feel greasy on my skin at all. It just felt extremely moisturizing
It felt thick when I applied it to my skin. It is a good enough sunscreen but it is not for all skin types as recommended by the manufacturer.
It is particularly heavy for humid /tropical weather; however, this may not be too much of an issue for people who have dry skin or in need of moisture.
On people of color, it takes a little massaging for the white cast on your skin to disappear.
