  • "I have sensitive skin and can't use chemical sunscreens. I love this one, it doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't leave a white cast or have a sticky feeling. Just perfect! " in 19 reviews
  • "The BEST sunscreen ever. this is my HG sunscreen. it is a chemical sunscreen so that may turn some people off. this stuff does not make your skin more oily throughout the day and it does not leave your skin feeling dry either. it has hydrating and moisturizing agents and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. it also doesn't give you any flashback with flash photography. it has a light citrusy scent and wears extremely well underneath makeup.

  • "This is it, my HG sunscreen at last! I have naturally, very fair, sensitive, combination (but mostly dry) somewhat acne prone skin. To boot, several of my key issues include hyper-pigmentation, and aging prevention. So to find a sunscreen that not only: - protects effectively (gotta have that ++++!) against uva and uvb rays, in addition to: - not leaving a whitish cast, - nor leaving my face a grease trap with dry, flaky patches 😝 - makeup applies smoothly over it (hate when they ball up, ick!), - and it even feels good, as in, you can't feel it once it's been applied! But you know, still check ingredients for your sensitivities. Also, different skin types may = different results. Regardless, this stuff is miles away from any sunscreen I've purchased in the US. It doesn't clog my pores, but I'm careful to double cleanse for complete removal before bed. Oh also, very economically priced! 🤗" in 6 reviews

Great daily facial moisturizer - goes on smooth, soaks in quickly, perfect for under makeup. I found this from a Reddit thread with the best sunscreens, and it hasn't disappointed! As somebody who generally hates the feel of sunscreen, this is one of the only ones I can stand.

I’ve always been so bad with using sunscreen (I know!) because most products leave a thick.m, greasy feeling on my face. I love how light and moisturizing this feels! I put a thin layer on before I do all my makeup and it smells great!

I do not often use sunscreen because of the way it makes my skin feel sticky and gross afterapplication. After a friend's reccomencation I tried and love the Watery Essence Sunscreen. It applies smoothly and stays on without the sticky gross feeling plus my skin loves it.

BEST FACIAL SUNSCREEN. As someone who struggles with redness, I love this product! It is very cooling and calms my redness and helps prevent inflammation. It is very thin and quick absorbing so it is easy to apply makeup over it as well. 10/10 would recommend to everyone.

This Asian sunscreen will change your hole idea of what a good sunscreen is. It is very lightweight, has a lovely smell and is absorbed quickly without leaving the skin dry or greasy. All of this with such a high SPF. I absolutely love it!

Best sunscreen I've ever use. Quick absorption, not sticky, no observable white cast for me. Need to purchase ahead of time since it's from Japan. I buy from Amazon generally. Would be nice if they release this in the us

It felt very thin and unlike usual sunscreens that are super thick. Perfect for everyday use and oily skin. A downside was that it smelled a lot like alcohol. The smell felt very suffocating. I wish it did not smell as bad or else I would have bought it again.

I use this sunscreen daily even under my makeup and it has been amazing. I have repurchased this 4 times and don't see myself trying any other sunscreen. It dries quickly, doesn't feel tacky, and doesn't have whitecast

very watery and light weight not feeling oily or thick at all. Price tag is supper affordable compare to the feature it has. I bought it this summer and haven’t yet finish. Package wise, very Japanese style with the beautiful aqua color. It would be better if it level up the SPF

I've spent so much time trying out sunscreens that I just couldn't use because they were too greasy, heavy, sticky, whatever. This sunscreen is a dream come true for me! It's really lightweight and absorbs well too. It comes out as a cream but when you rub it in it takes on a watery texture. It has hydrating ingredients which are great for my dehydrated skin, and it doesn't make me oily at all. 

This product was really hard to find online. none of the Amazon pages worked but I found it on YesStyle for about 30 dollars, although I spent 13.

Another thing to mention is the alcohol. It's second on the ingredient list. It's a common thing in Japanese sunscreens and that's what makes them different from American ones. It's why their formulas are so light and non-greasy, and alcohol can actually help products absorb better and is safe if it's formulated properly.

Does this sunscreen have zinc or titanium dioxide as an active ingredient? My husband was told he needs to have at least one of those ingredients for his sunscreen.

I love this product because it’s light on the skin, doesn’t leave a white cast or any residue, and is relatively inexpensive especially if you buy it in bulk. However, the chemical ingredients have come to my attention and was wondering if anyone has found a more natural ingredient sunscreen just as good as this one
