    I've checked out Basic Beauty today. There are just so many types to choose from!

    Which Sunkiller are you using?


    • #3
      I like Clearwater 50 because it's the lightest. If you like shimmer, Beauty Skin Water 50 is good. Powder-in Milk 50 has menthol and is best kept for the body only.

      If you're going to be spending long hours in the sun, you're better off with Clear Milk 85 or the tinted Lift-tight skin tone Milk 135.

      The others in the range have only PA+ or ++ and do not give sufficient protection.

            Erm, it's a stupid question so here goes...

            If i have a foundation with 20 spf and a suncreen with 20 spf, do i get a protection of 40 spf if i use both together, or is it still 20?

            Thanks to all of u in advance!!
            I think i saw the same question some time back and they say it does not add up if i'm not wrong. It's still SPF 20.

                  Sunkiller finally got back to me! They still listed Nishino at Daimaru, and I assume it's under Meidi-ya now.

                        I wonder ... is sunscreen absorbed into our skin? What I'm trying to find out is if after application, I find my face somewhat oily and thus use a tissue to wipe (such as one tissues off excess moisturiser on the face some minutes post application, after the required amount of moisturiser has been absorbed), would I be taking off the sun protection and in effect throwing money down the drain?


                        • #13
                          Generally speaking, chemical sunscreens are absorbed and physical sunscreens just sit on the skin. So yes, you could very likely take the good stuff off. Blot, don't wipe, if you must. Or apply in light layers and wait for it to dry.

                          Btw, did you know there are Japanese blotting papers with a low SPF?

                              I can't find the old thread on sunscreen and was hoping to find some recommendations =) please let me know if i should delete this post or move it.

                              THe sunkiller cool water spf 50 and spf 85 is not working for me =(
                              i'm definitely a couple of shades darker then before. No im not a sun fanatic, the only sun i get is from the flourescent light over my head, the computer screen and walking along orchard road!

                              any recs for both body and face sunblock would be greatly appreciated!
