Miniso Anti UV & Whitening Sunscreen SPF25 Review

Summers are here and so is the need for sunscreen. Finding that perfect sunscreen lotion or cream is as difficult as finding that right pair of jeans. It looks easy but when you start using it, it does not feel good. Some may make you break out, cause oily face, have a white cast on the skin or simply don't work. In my quest for a perfect sunscreen, I started this year's summer skincare with Miniso Anti UV & Whitening Sunscreen SPF25.

My Take

I got this sunscreen out of curiosity on my trip to Miniso. however, it turned out to be a good sunscreen. I will not say anything about the whitening claims of this sunscreen from Miniso, but it works good on my skin and does not make it break out. The texture is smooth and white. You can take the necessary amount on your hands, apply little dots all over face and body and massage it gently. Even though it might seem too white, but it is absorbed in my skin properly. I apply it after cleansing and moisturising my face with Innisfree Jeju volcanic clay foam face wash and Innisfree Bija trouble lotion respectively. 

I have combination skin and it does not make it look oily. It has SPF 25 but it is advisable not to step out in the sun without covering yourself or without an umbrella. I haven't seen much tanning so keeping my fingers crossed. 



Pros

  • Gets absorbed in the skin perfectly
  • Does not make you breakout
  • Works for tanning
  • Feels light on the face
  • Matte finish
  • Budget friendly
  • Easily available in Miniso
  • Travel friendly

Cons

  • No whitening effects whatsoever
  • Not much protection from sun
  • May not be suitable for oily skin
  • SPF is not much

It is a good sunscreen if you are looking for slight sun protection. If you are an outdoorsy person, I will suggest that you use someone with more SPF and broad UV coverage. My favourite so far is Neutrogena so I will stick to that only.
