Finding the right SPF products to incorporate in your regimen may appear simple, but we all know that some may result in skin feeling sticky, oily, clumpy, and leave behind unsightly white streaks. Adding to the fact that the FDA is now examining the safety of standard sunscreen chemicals that are available in the market, the chore of selecting a functional sunscreen that both looks and feels pleasant becomes even more difficult.

In Malaysia however, there are indeed numerous brands available that could cater to the daily protection of your skin. Not just a regular brand—we have conscientiously chosen the ones that guarantee to shield your skin from the angry Malaysian sun, all year round. We assessed the consistency, texture, and finish of each formula. These findings were then paired with skin type suggestions.
