Review: Skin Food Peach Sake Sun Lotion SPF 32/PA ++

As you all may have know now from my posts that I am an avid user of sunscreen. I can’t go out of the house without being too paranoid that the sun’s rays are going to age my skin or even create sun spots. Even though I have found my favorite sunscreen from Neutrogena, I’m still on the look out for cheaper alternatives. Last month, I was between the peach sake or the tomato line from Skin Food, but I chose the sake option.

Peach Sake Sun Lotion SPF 32/PA ++

This smooth and easy-to-apply sun lotion contains extracts of ‘Sake’, a traditional Japanese rice wine, and peach to keep your skin moist while protecting it from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun.


How I Use It
I shake the bottle of lotion, twist the cap open, then apply a 1.5 cm diameter to my whole face and neck.

What I Like About It
·         It’s available in most Skin Food counters at the mall
·        It’s definitely cheaper if you pre-order or buy it online. I got it for IDR 139,000 (75 mL) at ChicPrincessa
·         The pakaging is a simple twist-off cap, so application will not be messy
·         The texture of the lotion is quite runny and thin
·         It has a decent SPF of 32
·         It doesn’t break me out
·         It doesn’t feel like using a sunscreen, more like a very moisturizing lotion

What I Hate About It
·       It has a strong ‘sake’ fragrance that might offend some people sensitive to scents
·      It is targetted for people with dry skin types. I used this when my skin is oily and it leaves me with a sticky and oilier face. However, since my skin is more of a combination type, this doesn’t give me any problem, currently.
