Laneige Sensitive UV Protector SPF31 PA++ Review

Laneige Sensitive UV Protector SPF31 PA++ Review

Some of these pictures are ones I edited for my first blog but never posted.

I purchased Laneige's Sensitive UV Protector SPF31 PA++ a while back when I ran out of my first bottle of Clarins UV Plus Day Screen. I was looking for a cheaper alternative. Laneige's Sensitive UV PRotector cost me $22 + tax versus Clarins UV Plus Day Screen which costs $40 + tax.

It's alcohol-free, fragrance-free, and color-free; great for those with sensitive skin!

If you can't tell, the tiny opening makes it difficult to squeeze out a lot of product at once. Also, the sunscreen isn't liquid like my normal Clarins sunscreen is. It's creamy and a bit thick. This combination is a bit annoying when I'm rushing to put on sunscreen in the mornings or before I go out.

Here is my skin before application:

It is the opposite side of my face but you can still see the difference. It's a bit shinier than before application. Nothing a little blotting paper and/or powder won't fix!

Verdict?
I won't be repurchasing this product since the tiny opening makes it too difficult to squeeze out product quickly. It also doesn't apply as easily compared to liquid sunscreens (which I think I might now favor over this) and leaves me a bit shiny. I still really love my HG Clarins UV Plus Day Screen. It might be pricey but it keeps my face looking matte for the majority of the day, dispenses and applies easily... I could go on but I'll save that for a review. :) If you have really sensitive skin though and are looking for a new sunscreen, this might just be the product for you! At $22, it (hopefully) won't rip a hole in your wallet and is fragrance, color, alcohol, and supposedly chemical free.

  1. Aw, so you are who I thought you were :) Aw, sorry to hear you didn't love it. Packaging does make a big difference. Wish some companies would realize that!
