Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel SPF50 PA++

Hello, gorgeousness! It took me a long time to purchase a new sunscreen other than my tried and trusted sunscreen. I'm a long term user of that Wardah sunscreen and what drove me to buy a different sunscreen this time around? Because I've been told by the SA that there's a chance the Wardah sunscreen is going to be out of stock for several months. Several months. My skin's going to act up and mess with me. It sucks. So I gave in and bought another one as an alternative but I can't find any sunscreen that's cheaper than my Wardah sunscreen. That's even worse. But we gotta do what we gotta do, sis.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Brightening Moisture Gel sunscreen retails at about RM30 for 80ml of product, maybe 2-3 ringgit cheaper or pricier depending on where you get them. I think the price point is fair with what I'm getting. It's affordable to a certain extent.

First things first, packaging. It comes in a pink squeezable plastic bottle with a screwed nozzle. The design is pretty sleek and chic. I like it and I like the color but I personally don't like 1) the nozzle because it can be messy; 2) the cap because for some reason I tend to misplace screwed caps like this but let's hope not.

It has a solid white color, just like any other sunscreen. The consistency is gel-like and quite runny. It's safe to say that it's lightweight too. I like that it's not too greasy, I would say it has a satin matte finish and absorbs quite fast on my skin. Oh, and it leaves minimal to almost no white cast as well. I think that's where I'm sold.

This sunscreen doesn't break me out and for that fact, I thank the Lord. I'm so happy because my skin can be tricky and sensitive. It reacts almost immediately to whatever I put on my skin. Another thing is worth mentioning here is that this sunscreen is so hydrating and moisturizing and it's also alcohol-free. Another plus point in my eyes! Overall, it's such a comfortable sunscreen to wear every day. It looks great under makeup and without makeup. My skin feels super protected hence their Solarex-3 technology.

What I like about it:

  • doesn't leave a noticeable white cast on my medium skin
  • alcohol-free
  • doesn't break me out
  • hydrating gel-like formula
  • lightweight & not greasy
  • contains Arbutin
  • value for money

What I don't like about it:

  • the nozzle & the cap
  • and I think that's it

I think you can already tell I'm in love with this sunscreen. I have been using it every day for a week now. I know that's not a long period of time but so far so good. I'm loving it. Maybe a little bit more than the Wardah sunscreen. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this quick little review of my current (possibly) favorite sunscreen. Check it out if you're in need of a new sunscreen.
