Sunscreen, sun cream, sun whatever you want to call it. In the K-beauty world, sunscreen is named “sun cream”, so don’t get confused. I used to not like sunscreen since it is so thick on the skin, has this disgusting scent to it.. heck we even say “ugh that sunscreen smell!” Sunscreen has its own distinct scent that makes everyone not want to walk around smelling like rancid play doh. Korean sunscreens though is a whole new beast in itself. They come in many forms including essence milk, gel, gel stick, you name it! I’ve personally been having a kick testing out Korean sunscreen, so any sunscreen that comes my way, I’m gonna try it. Let’s kick of the almost-end-of-summer sunscreen reviews with Thank you farmer’s sun project water sun cream. Let’s go!

How to use:
Apply 30 minutes before you are exposed to sunlight. You can use this after your skincare routine or even before your make up routine. Apply enough to cover your whole face and neck and massage until absorbed into the skin.
Packaging for this sunscreen is quite basic. It comes in a light sky blue tube with a twist off cap. The sunscreen is dispensed through a tiny hole by squeezing the tube. Straight forward enough right? I don’t find this packaging being messy which is definitely a plus.
Like how I was going on and on about texture and smell about sunscreens, this one from Thank you farmer is very comfortable on the skin, doesn’t dry my skin out or have that weird powdery finish that is oily at the same time. If no one told me this was sunscreen, I’d think this was just another milky essence since it doesn’t have that gross smell and absorbs into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy finish. My skin definitely feels moisturized and doesn’t have a white cast.
This sunscreen has a pH level of 5, meaning it is very unlikely to irritate human skin since it is as close of a pH level to flesh as it possibly could.
There is a scent of apricots like how the description says with a super faint scent of sunscreen. I’d say its about 95% apricot and 5% sunscreen smell. Smell-o-scale: 7/10 in terms of how strong the scent is.
-super light weight
-doesn’t leave a white cast
Stars given out of 5:
Sorry, this is definitely a super short review but honestly, how much can you say about a sunscreen other then it works. Its kind of like me reviewing cleansers or toners, hence why you don’t really see too many reviews on those types of products. But I think this product is worth a review because it really is good. It is pretty much everything I want in a sunscreen. Doesn’t smell gross, doesn’t have that gross powdery but oily finish. Not only does this sunscreen check off all the things I look for, it comes with 50 mL of product for only $21. I think that is a good price and definitely worth a buy. Overall I’m super happy with this sunscreen and I give this two thumbs up.
