I LOVE Japanese sunscreens in general. They're THE BEST for oily skin and Sofina is my HG.

I was so sad when this product was discontinued. Solely because of MakeupAlley, I was able to discover the wonderful world of Japanese sunscreens. My facial skin could never tolerate facial...

I LOVE THIS SUNSCREEN! It reminds me of the super expensive small sunscreen from Chanel (which is also 50spf) but I like this one a lot more b/c it dries faster and it works as a great primer in...

I have very fair, easily burned skin that is also oily and break-out prone. To keep from getting burned, I've been real sun block (not the wimpy stuff in makeup/moisturizers) almost every day of my...

For any people out there who are struggling to find a SS that does not break you out try this one! I tried so many - L'oreal, simple, l'occitanne . . . all of them made me wake up covered in little...

This sunscreen doesn't break me out like so many others from Aveno, Neutrogena, etc. It is similar to Clarins which I used to use but less expensive. The downside is there isn't an expiration on it...

Love it! I got the pink-toned one and it blends well with my skin. This is the best sunscreen/primer for oily skin! The only downside is that I have to order it online since it is an Asian Brand.
