Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Dr.Ci:Labo UV & White Protection Milks are physical sunblock that use Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide as active UV protector. The two that I reviewed in this post are SPF30++ and SPF50+++, both contain Alpha-arbutin as skin brightening ingredient, whereas the UV & White Protection Milk of Super Sensitive range, UV & White Protection Milk SPF20/PA+ does not contain potentially irritating Alpha-arbutin (Alpha-arbutin is hydroquinone derivative).


I normally prefer simple-formulated sunblock but according to my searching, that is not many choices of lightweight physical sunblock which is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, mild, soothing and enriched with antioxidants. I got few samples of Dr.Ci:Labo UV & White Protection Milks and here is my brief review.


UV & White Protection Milk SPF30/PA++ (S$51 or RM117/30ml)

Suprisingly this is gel-liked. It is lightweight, the  protective film is non-greasy, non-sticky and also leaves no visible white residue. Meanwhile, it also did not control sebum, but I love it for my easily dehydrated skin that normally spend long hours in air-conditioned environment. As it is silicone-based, it may be comedogenic to some people and not very water-resistant. Furthermore, it pills a little bit upon applying makeup foundation as shown in below picture, not really a big issue because it did not spoil the makeup and I can just sweep the pilling over, but that might be its disadvantage point to some people.

UV & White Protection Milk SPF50/PA+++ (S$57 or RM 132/30ml)


This has milky consistency and I find it fairly moisturizing. It takes a short while to settle a non-greasy, subtle luminous film that ideally serve as beautiful glossy makeup base, I do think the skin texture appeared a little bit smoother (than without wearing this) after applying foundation. Meanwhile, it feels slightly sticky to touch and leaves minimum/no white residue. It is also very water-resistant that I would use cleansing oil to wash my hand after applying the sunblock. Last but not least, it moisturized my easily dehydrated skin in air-conditioned room very well.
