Review: Skin79 Waterproof Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Water Wrapping

I received the Skin79 Waterproof Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ as a gift from my sister. She got it in S. Korea and my lord I cannot find it anywhere here! I have seen the Sun Gel with SPF 50+ PA+++, but the PA++++ seems to have disappeared or not really sold anywhere! I have also seen PA++++ on the bottle while PA+++ was used for the description in many cases. So I’m not sure if it’s even a real thing! Either way, this is still a good sunscreen, mainly because it’s a sun gel. I’ve talked about and provided a short review of this on my Instagram, but it’s time to make it official.

What it’s supposed to do

Protect your face from the sun

How I use it

I squeeze the product into my hand and rub all over my face. Because it’s more of a gel, it dissolves quickly. Sometimes I reapply to my acne scars with a patting motion and just let it dissipate on its own.

What I like about it

It’s so light and leaves no white cast after it’s settled for a minute! Using the proper amount of sunscreen is so easy with this product for this reason. I often wonder if these sunscreen gels are actually working. I wish there were some sun protection device that detects whether or not you are being protected from UV rays!

What could be better

The first time I used this it had a very strong perfume fragrance. I didn’t think about it again for a while and ended up giving it a second chance. The fragrance was less perfumey but still present. I prefer my sunscreen to have no fragrance. Also, I’d really, really like to know if there are two versions of this sun gel or if the bottle is just a typo.
