【Feelings after using】

It’s light and comfortable, and prevent suntan well even not expensive price, and it doesn’t fall off even if I sweat a lot.

I walked almost all day under a strong sunshine in Indonesia for 2 days on a trip, and after applying in the morning, I didn’t repaint once, but I hardly suntanned. (Check before-after image below)

There is not so much change between before & after

Although I suntanned a little bit, but considering that I didn’t repaint, it’s quite effective.
If you absolutely don’t want to get tanned, repainting several times will be more effective to guard suntan.

In addition, there is no thing as “It is hard to paint and hard to spread,” which is commonly found in products with high sunscreen effect.

The gel-like liquid extends well and does not become unnatural white skin.

Milk type liquid also like it, but texture after applying is different.
Feeling of use after applying gel-type is sense of moisture.

On the other hand, milk-type is very smooth and no sense of moisture.

I like milk-type more because I prefer smooth texture, but maybe for dry skin, gel-type is better, I think.

Skin Protect Milk : No unnatural white after painting

This is floral scent and doesn’t have the unique smell of sunscreen about both of them.

If I will go to strong sunshine environment, I would like to use this sunscreen!

Both products, these can be used for about 3 weeks if you use every day.
