Sunscreen is essential for everyday use. Do you know that sun exposure is one of the major factors in aging skin and skin diseases? The harmful UV rays not only caused sun burned, freckles or tanning of our skin, but it also causes skin cancer. It is very crucial for us to protect our skin, especially living in a tropical country where the sun shines like summer days all year long.


Not only it is a must to apply sunscreen when we are stepping out into the sun, but it is as important to incorporate sunscreen into our beauty routine even when we stay indoors.

Ahead, 5 brands of the product that are worth investing without breaking the bank.

5 Sunscreen that are Worth Investing

Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF 50++ WetForce


Hate the hassle of having to re-apply because it wears off after you sweat or get into the water? If so, Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF 50++ WetForce might just be what you need. With its new technology, Shiseido has created a sunscreen that is much effective when you perspire or in contact with water! This is definitely good news for us who love the outdoors and sea! The texture of the sunscreen is quite watery but leaves a matte finishing to the skin. No more the walking around with the ugly “shine” on your face! Due to its light texture, the skin doesn’t feel sticky at all.

Fresh Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+


Before I go any further, I need to declare my huge love for Fresh! From their skincare to cosmetics, I only have praises for them. So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw the Peony Brightening UV Shield Sunscreen SPF 50+ from Fresh. Apart from providing powerful protection against UV rays and pollution, this light-weighted silky creamy SPF brightens and hydrates the skin significantly too.

Kiehl’s Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream SPF 50/PA+++


Sun protection and BB cream 2 in 1? Oh yeah! Free from silicone, mineral-oil, fragrance and paraben, the sunscreen is suitable for all skin; and the light-weighted texture would make you feel comfortable the whole day! What’s so great about this sunscreen apart from having the highest level of sun protection? Well…. It correct skin discolorations and doesn’t clog the pores!

Aesop Protective Body Lotion SPF 50


While protecting your face, don’t forget about your body too! It needs the same protection from the sun as well. If you are not a fan of sticky, creamy body sunscreen; how about a light-weighted lotion then? Packed with soothing aroma of refreshing spearmint, lemon and lavender, Aesop Protective Body Lotion gives you a 4-hours protection against perspiration and water.

Clinique Body Cream SPF 50


A high-level protection against UV rays from aging and burning your skin, the Clinique Body Cream is to be considered as your friendly body SPF. The product is great for normal to dry skin, and it contains whole lots of anti-oxidants in it. Just like most of Clinique’s skincare, this sunscreen is also fragrance-free but it leaves a slight shimmer on the skin.

What’s your go-to sunscreen? We would love to hear about it!
