Sunscreen Products I Like & Dislike

We are so sorry that we have been mia for quite a long time, both of us were really busy at work and study recently. Now I'm back with a review of some sunscreen products I have been using lately.

As you all know, Singapore is hot and humid all year long, sunscreen becomes very important for everyone lives here. If I can only use one skincare product everyday, it will be sunscreen without second thought, because skin damage and skin aging are mainly caused by ultraviolet. 

"Many people incorrectly assume dry skin leads to wrinkles and that moisturizers can prevent them. Not true. Research shows 90 percent of wrinkles are caused by the sun's UVA light and sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging in women and men." (about.com)

My skin condition is combination type, a bit sensitive and acne-prone.
My concern about a "good sunscreen" must be high SPF value, light texture, doesn't cause breakout and no harmful ingredient (like paraben or oxybenzone)

Below are the 3 products I like:

1, SHESEIDO ANESSA Perfect Smooth Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

SHESEIDO ANESSA Perfect Smooth Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++

Total Score: 4.7 / 5 

What I like
High SPF value: SPF50+ PA+++  5 / 5
Finish: Matt 5 / 5
Texture: Light 5 / 5
Oil Control: 4.5 / 5
Ingredient: Paraben-free, Oxybenzone-free
(mixture of chemical and physical sunscreen) 4.5 / 5

What I dislike:
Price: 4 / 5
It's a bit pricey if to get it from department store, but it's still affordable to buy from HK drugstores.
