Miniso Skin Defense Sunscreen SPF 30+
Hello! How’s summer treating you? Today I’ll be talking about the most important step of your skin routine – sunscreen! If you’re looking for an affordable, good quality sunscreen then this post might help you.
I bought Miniso Skin Defense sunscreen last year while doing a little birthday shopping along with their moisturiser which is one of the best moisturisers for oily skin types. After having a decent relationship with the sunscreen, let’s read about how it works.
If you want me to give a hint, I’d say I don’t have any major issues with the quality of this sunscreen apart from just one factor that would make me not repurchase it.
Protects your skin from ultraviolet rays. Helps prevent sunburn. Soothes and moisturizes skin.
Price: INR 350 for 50g
Availability: Any Miniso store. They recently started to sell online but things didn’t really go smooth.
The miniso skin defense sunscreen comes in a silver and blue coloured tube that mentions all the ingredients and product details at the back. The tube comes enclosed in paper cardboard. If you can see in the picture, it has a pointy nozzle that dispenses the sunscreen. The tube is lightweight, sleek and travel-friendly.
Texture & Smell
The sunscreen is white in colour and has a light gel to cream texture that sinks into the skin and gives a dewy finish. It does not feel sticky or heavy on the skin and feels refreshing on applying.
The smell is mild and something very familiar but I’m not able to figure out exactly what it is, sorry. But it does have added artificial fragrance which is a potential skin irritant especially for those with sensitive skin.
How to use the sunscreen?
Once you’re done with your morning skincare routine, take a generous amount of this miniso sunscreen and apply all over the exposed area 15 minutes before stepping out in the sun.
Being an oily skin person, I skip moisturiser whenever I’m using this sunscreen because it’s already very, very moisturising. Set the T-zone with powder and leave the rest of your face untouched for a dewy but not oily look, that’s what I do with this sunscreen. And for dry skin people, this is a boon!
Is it good?
The sun defense sunscreen by miniso is a hybrid sunscreen that has both chemical filters and physical blockers to give you the best of both worlds. If you’re getting confused about the terms mentioned in the previous sentence, I’d recommend you to read about some lesser-known facts about sunscreen. That will answer all your questions like when to use, how much to use and what to look for while buying a sunscreen.
It was a cloudy day when I started shooting this but all of a sudden the sun decided to show up and how! The reason behind my hand looking so different in both the pictures.
The sunscreen doesn’t leave any white cast and moisturise the skin deeply. I do feel like it makes me a little greasy so I go overboard with powder.
It didn’t break me out or irritate my sensitive skin. For people with dry or combination skin types, this could be your best friend. However, for oily skin, it’s better to keep this for winters or less humid days and stick to something more matte for the rest of the year.
If you’re looking for an affordable, lightweight sunscreen that also moisturises your skin, the miniso skin defense sunscreen is an amazing choice. However, I am transitioning into cruelty-free beauty so I won’t be repurchasing it.
It’s pretty difficult to stop buying skincare from Miniso because I love their aloe vera moisturiser too! But there are plenty of options available and I promise to bring them to you on this platform.
