Wardah Sun Care Sunscreen Gel SPF 30 Review

Hello, lovelies~ If you have been reading my blog for quite some time, you will have known by now that I am a skincare junkie. To be more precise, a sunscreen enthusiast. I would do anything to keep those deadly UV rays off my face. I have a sunscreen review for you that is from a local brand called Wardah.

The sunscreen comes in a separate box that has all of the information about the product. The expiry date is imprinted on the squeeze tube, instead of the box. I like this part because I won’t have to keep referring to the box when the sunscreen will expire. Unfortunately, I no longer have the box, so I couldn't show you how it looks like. :(

It uses a chemical type sunscreen ( to ward off any UV rays that are harmful to our skin. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate and 4-methylbenzylidene camphor protects the skin from UVB rays. Butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, on the other hand, protects the skin from aging UVA rays. It uses parabens as preservatives. Dimethicone and cyclopentasiloxane is added to the mix to give a silky smooth finish without a heavy sticky residue. There are still fragrance in this sunscreen, so sensitive skin may need to be aware of it.

It has quite a thick consistency, but blends out easily when spread all over the face. The sunscreen doesn’t leave a heavy or overly sticky residue once applied evenly. It doesn’t give a white cast or mask that you get with thick sunscreens.

Despite it being marketed as a gel that is targeted for people with oily skin, it doesn’t give a matte finish or hold excess oil well. Within an hour, my face is already looking shiny, ready to be wiped off with a blotting sheet. I usually dust a bit of mattifying powder on top to hold off my excess oil for a little while longer.

Overall, this affordable sunscreen may be an option for you who are looking for a sunscreen with a moderate rating of SPF for daily use. I think it would suit those with combination-dry skin, but do take caution in that it won’t be extremely moisturizing for the dry areas on your face.

What do you think of this oldie but goodie from Wardah? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Thanks for reading, and until then, I'll see you later~
