Sunprise Mild Airy Finish sunscreen by Etude House review

Summer may be over but your sun protection definitely shouldn't. However, if you have oily skin or if you live in a super hot country like Greece, putting on sunscreen probably sounds like a torture.
Even the ones that are supposed to be for oily skin and acne prone skin end up oily or make your face dry and then a minute after oily again. Plus the big majority of sunscreens for oily or/and acne prone skin actually dry up your skin which causes oily skin to actually become more oily during the day. So you end up with both dehydrated and shiny skin at the same time, something you definitely don't want.

So for long, I was content with the idea of using a moisturizing sunscreen, it might get my skin shiny, but at least it was healthy and hydrated. But a little while ago (about three-four months ago) I decided to get my first ever Korean sunscreen. I decided to pick up something from Etude House due to the price (it was on sale for about 8-9€) and the ingredient list, as well as the reviews on it. It has SPF 50 and promises a mild airy finish. It's the Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sunscreen.

This is the ingredient list from Etude House website:
Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Zinc Oxide, Alcohol, Dicaprylyl Ether, Dipropylene Glycol, Titanium Dioxide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Leaf Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Extract, Carex Humillis Root Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Pinus Sylvestris Leaf Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Terminalia Ferdinandiana Fruit Extract, Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cardiospermum Halicacabum Flower/Leaf/Vine Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Methicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Octyldodecanol, Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Caprylate, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Butylene Glycol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Cellulose Gum

Through the ingredient list, you can see that it seems to be a physical sunscreen since it contains both Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which are two ingredients you always want your sunscreen to have. Now seeing this when ordering the product I was quite skeptical of the name. Physical sunscreens are known for their heavy formula and the white cast they leave on the skin. Anything but airy finish. However physical sunscreens are much better for your skin and they don't cause you to break out.
But this sunscreen did not fail. I have never, ever before in my life, tried a sunscreen with such smooth, silky finish. It practically feels like a primer, without that silicony finish. It makes my skin super mat but not dry and it is perfect for these super hot summer days. It's also ideal as a make-up base. Also, this feeling lasts all day long.

You can also see that there are much more other good skincare ingredients in the list which truly amazed me. When trying to find a sunscreen in Greece and searching the ingredient in cosdna they would always lean to the really harmful side. I was really disappointed to see that even pharmaceutical lines would not have much to offer in the skincare department. This sunscreen comes in complete comparison to that and the difference is huge. Western brands really need to up their game cause unfortunately, they are not even close to the ingredients and the feeling of this sunscreen.

If you have oily skin and you live in a hot humid country this sunscreen will be your savior. I know I already bought the second one!

Also if you have sun damage like me I would recommend you getting this SKINMISO Spot Repairing Serum. It's free and you just pay shipping, I have already ordered mine!
