REVIEW: Etude House AC Clinic Sun Gel

priced at PhP498.  but a gift from etude house for me to try.
Photobucket
not really a gel but more of a lotion.  this smells like coppertone, only a tad better, citrusey.

and during the day.  it didn't make me any oilier than i am anyway.  but usually any and all sun blocks give me too much stuff on my face that my skin can't handle it at that special time of the month.
Photobucket
my usual neutrogena also at PhP490++ but neutrogena only has 30 ml while the etude's has 50ml.
Photobucket
same tip for a 'controlled' release
Photobucket
and oh it's nearing that time of the month and i completely forgot, so after about 4 or 5 days of using this daily, i got one small zit.  i'm back on my l'egere white multi bb cream so a near disaster was averted and my zit is not humongous.  i only know it's there when i feel a little bump under skin.  you know the kind... the one you don't know if it's gonna come out or not...hopefully not ^_^

Likes:

  • spf 30 pa ++ (but not as much as my usual neutrogena which has 50 and an additional pa +)
  • does not affect the look of my makeup.  
  • does not make me any less or more shiny thru out the day
  • does not wash me out when i have the flash turned on my cam
  • easy to apply, isn't gritty applying it, it's like a moisturizer, watery but dries quickly.
  • competitively priced
Dislike
  • the smell
  • it's only spf 30 with only pa ++
do i recommend this? - yep, if you don't like to put on foundation or bb creams with a lot of spf on them, then this and powder should be good for you the whole day or at least in the office where there isn't direct sunlight.
will i continue to use? - yes, especially when i know i'm not in that special time of the month where i'm bound to get a zit when there's too much on my face ;-)

great review marge! :) usually i just use a product with spf. i never really use a seperate sunscreen because i'm just too lazy hahah! xD

that's so true, when i used to put on sun screen AND BB cream i noticed i would be prone to zits more at that special time of the month. so now my spf either comes fr the bb cream or foundation na lang since i'm always in doors naman. ☺

Marge said...

@Sophisticated Glam: ey there ☺ i usually buy mine at either at watson's or the dept store at robinson's galeria, but usually where ever neutrogena products are available the sun blocks are there, too ♥

hello kittiecess: it is ok to put the AC clinic sun gel before putting on make up, but in my case i would avoid putting on foundation with high spf because all that spf broke me out eh.
