Today I'm going to be talking about the Innisfree Eco Safety Aqua Perfect Sun Gel! I love trying out new Asian Suncare because they just make the best formulas, and this is my first sunscreen from Innisfree!

This sun gel is quite runny and has a milky texture. It has an interesting smell, it smells like liquorice to me! It leaves quite a dewy finish on my skin, it's really moisturising! It does sink in after a while leaving my skin matte, but it took around 30minutes to mattify which is quite some time for me.
Would I Purchase This Product?No. Because it takes a while to mattify, I would chose other sunscreens over this one. I don't usually have enough time in the morning do do every day chores, let alone waiting an extra 30minutes for my sunscreen to absorb thoroughly! If I was to use it during summer and reapply every 2-3 hours I think it would make my skin look quite greasy too, which is not my goal at all. That being said, it is reasonably priced at $23NZD (plus shipping) from the Innisfree website and it's not a terrible sunscreen, I just think that I can find one more suitable for my skin! ^.^
I would definitely recommend this sunscreen to any Princesses with dryer skin types, or are looking for a dewier finish sunscreen.
