Hello everyone and happy weekend. Let's continue on with reviewing sunscreen with today's product - Innisfree Intensive Triple Care Sunscreen. I have seen this sunscreen on a lot of social media and have been curious as I have read rave reviews of this product.

Benefits:
1. Triple care sunscreen. 
This multi-functional sunscreen reduces the appearance of wrinkles, brightens the skin and shields out sunlight.
2. Powerful water resistant sunscreen. 
The tenacious water resistant formula is great for use during water activities and other outdoor events.
3. Physical sunscreen that reflects UV rays from skin surface
. This physical sunscreen protects your skin against the sun by forming a protective layer on the surface of your skin to deflect damaging UV rays.


How to Use:
At the last stage of your morning skincare routine, evenly apply (gently pat) onto easily exposed areas of face.

This sunscreen comes in a no-nonsense yellow squeeze tube plastic packaging with a twist off cap which snaps in place. The plastic tube feels handy and travel-friendly. Additionally, the squeeze-type nozzle dispenses the right amount of product and prevents any messes.

Innisfree Intensive Triple Care Sunscreen claims to give you three benefits (hence the "triple care" in the name) - anti-aging, brightening and sun protection. I can't comment much on the anti-aging and brightening claims but keep in mind that if you are using sun protection, then as a consequence, you are also protecting your skin against UV rays which causes premature skin aging and darkening.

Swatch: Innisfree Intensive Triple Care Sunscreen

The formula feels very thick, creamy and mostly dry with a matte finish. This requires me to use a moisturizer underneath despite my normally oily skin. It also makes it harder to spread on my face if I don't moisturize beforehand. I didn't feel any stickiness nor greasiness.

Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide both provide the (mineral) physical sun protection. (See cosdna profile here). The sunflower oil and Vitamin E helps with anti-aging and the Niacinamide with skin whitening. There are also various extracts in the ingredients which helps with inflammation and skin conditioning, particularly Centella Asiatica and Camellia Sinensis Leaf (Jeju green tea extract).

I wouldn't say that the texture feels lightweight. I definitely feel it sitting on top of my skin. There was also a noticeable white cast due to the fact that this is a physical sunscreen. The cream has a beige-y tint which is okay for my light skin tone but will definitely be more noticeable for those with darker complexions.

One upside for this Innisfree Intensive Triple Care Sunscreen is that it is water-resistant and sweat-proof. It doesn't budge easily and needed double cleansing to remove. Personally, I don't like to use this as my daily sun protection as it feels too heavy and takes effort to remove. I do like to use this if I know that I will be under the sun longer or I will sweat. This sunscreen doesn't cause makeup to slip off if you apply this underneath. I also didn't experience any irritation using this nor did it cause any breakouts. I detected a hint of fragrance upon opening but it is not strong enough to cause my nose to be sensitive and stuffed.
