I guess I do not have to emphasize on the importance of sunscreen, both for when you are indoors and outdoors. UV rays are the main culprit to premature aging, causing fine lines and pigmentation. No matter how expensive your skincare products are, all your efforts for good and youthful skin will go down the drain if you do not apply sunscreen.
With the plethora of sunscreens available on the shelves, it can be really difficult to pick a good one that suits your skin needs. Recently, I got my hands on NALC sunscreen (NALC Perfect Waterproof UV Protect SPF50+ PA++++), one of the top-selling sunscreens in Rakuten Japan. After using it for one week, it is time for me to do a review because good things must share.
1. Broad-spectrum UV protection against UVA and UVB rays
Using a sunscreen with at least an SPF30 is recommended, but I always up my game a little with at least an SPF50. NALC Perfect Waterproof UV Protect boasts an SPF50+ PA++++, and offers broad-spectrum UV protection against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are linked to long-term skin damage and skin aging, while UVB rays cause our skin to burn.
2. Long-lasting sun protection
NALC sunscreen uses a patented Japanese technology, the three-phase emulsification, to create a water and perspiration-proof formula. The sunscreen is hydrating, easily spreadable, has a lightweight texture, and is very long-lasting all thanks to the three-phase emulsification technology.
It can be challenging reapplying sunscreen over your makeup, and therefore, I always appreciate a long-lasting sunscreen, especially in our hot and humid Singapore!
3. Suitable for all skin types
For those of you who have sensitive skin and are particular about the products you use, you can use NALC Perfect Waterproof UV Protect with a peace of mind. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and formulated for both adults and children. It does not contain alcohol, parabens, fragrance, colourant, mineral oils, and surfactants, and contains Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate to soothe redness, irritations, and flakiness.
4. Lightweight texture
NALC sunscreen has a lightweight texture, which makes it easily spreadable. I love the fact that the light cream is also non-greasy and non-sticky, so doesn’t feel heavy on the skin after application.
All beauty aficionados know the wonders of hyaluronic acid and how it works to keep our skin moist. NALC Perfect Waterproof UV Protect is formulated with hyaluronic acid to hydrate our skin while it protects it from those evil UV rays. I’m plagued with dry skin, so it is great news to me when I know that the sunscreen contains hydrating ingredients.
6. Great under makeup
NALC sunscreen does not leave a white cast on our skin, doubles up as a makeup base, and allows our foundation to adhere to our skin better, and for a longer period of time.
Good news, NALC finally has an online store in Singapore and you can purchase their products with ease. It is an official store so you don’t have to worry about getting fake products. Head over to NALC store on Shopee and get your NALC Perfect Waterproof UV Protect to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays.
