Beauty of Joseon Relief Sunscreen

Travel back in time to the Joseon dynasty with the Beauty of Joseon Relief Sunscreen. Moreover, this K-beauty sunscreen has gone viral on TikTok and taken over our ‘for you pages’ whenever the term sunscreen comes up. This is a cruelty-free and vegan sunscreen that offers several benefits to protect your skin! With up to SPF50 PA++++ and ingredients like prebiotics and rice extracts. At first glance, this sunscreen features a sleek packaging that makes it easy to drop in your bag. Resembling a toothpaste tube, it makes for easy use as you just need to squeeze! Besides that, this sunscreen is also fragrance-free and has a mosituriser-like texture to it. If you have dry skin, this is definitely a great sunscreen to try out. 

What We Think

As for me, I have oily and slightly sensitive skin. So I can be quite picky when it comes to choosing sunscreen. With the Beauty of Joseon Relief sunscreen, I gave into the hype surrounding it on TikTok and decided to give it a try. After making sure that it didn’t have any irritating ingredients for my skin, I bit the bullet and purchased it. 

On my first time using it, it was fairly easy to apply as it went on my skin smoothly. I did have to blend it out a bit but once I did it, it left my skin looking dewy and glowy! It didn’t leave any white cast which was awesome, but it can feel slightly thick if you use too much. Besides that, I also found that it would sometimes sting the areas around my eyes. Especially if I applied any harsh chemicals like retinol before. This is a big no no, and I would advise to wait a few minutes after applying your skincare products to apply this sunscreen. But hey, if you don’t have overly sensitive skin, I believe this shouldn’t be a problem! 

Final Verdict

Overall, I still love using this sunscreen and have practically expended it to the max. But, I would think twice before getting a refill as I still have concerns over the stinging. But, I definitely recommend everyone give it a try as it could react differently to your skin. Besides, it’s still a great sunscreen that protects your skin and leaves your face glowing. So the Beauty of Joseon Relief Sunscreen, gets a 4-star rating in my book!
