Japanese Skincare Review: Kose Suncut UV Protect Spray SPF 50

Ohayo from Japan! 😀 Hi guys, hope you’re all having an awesome week so far. Dang, it is HOT in Japan at the moment, and since I’m supposed to be out and about the entire week, I thought I’d take the chance to try out a new sunscreen!



Voila!  This is a spray sunscreen by Kose and its called Suncut Essence in UV Protect Spray.  Kind of a mouthful, huh?  The scent is Fresh Citrus and its SPF50+ and PA+++.  Hurray!

At first, I thought this sunscreen was going to be like the typical ones you buy in American stores–I’m a really big fan of the Neutrogena ones for beach days.  However, I was surprised!  The formula is just as light but it doesn’t leave the same residue like the Neutrogena one does (this is probably because this Kose one isn’t waterproof.)  I sprayed myself all over and it felt like a setting spray after you’re done putting on your makeup.  Light and refreshing!  It was awesome.  The scent is subtle but it’s very pleasant.  I was afraid it was going to be like a perfume at first.



And yes, I did spray it all over myself.  Including my hair.  Our hair needs UV protection too!



I bought this product for 680 yen and I would definitely recommend trying it if you see it in a local drugstore.  I like it so much, I’m going to do my best to use it all before I go home!  (It’s in an aerosol can.  I heard you’re allowed to bring small amounts (toiletries?) on the plane with you but I’m not too sure how true that is)
