Review: Leaders Clinic Medieu Sensitive Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++

On February 3, 2012 by Michelle Ng

Hi all,

 

I was sent a few Leaders Clinic products from Virgina of Serenity Allure (Thanks Virgina!) and one of the items included is Leaders Clinic Medieu Sensitive Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++.

Regardless of whether the items I am reviewing were sponsored or not, I would just like to clarify that my opinions will always be honest. Having said that, I would recommend this sun screen to all of you girls out there! This is one of my favourite sunscreens that I have tried. Although I wouldn’t rate this as my HG sunscreen yet, but it is surely one affordable sun screen I can recommend to my friends!

My thoughts:

This sun screen is said to be dermatologist tested, but I never bank on this whenever I try new products. I believe in trying on my own skin to know its true effects. Having dry skin, I do not experience any dryness. You know how some sunscreen can appear so matte and tight on your skin? In fact, i feel that there is quite a bit of moisturizing factor as I can feel a slight slip on my skin, almost like having a silicon primer on my face. This slip feeling is definitely not greasy, although my HG sunscreen (to be revealed soon) does not have greasy or too drying at all. This sunscreen is fairly easy to work with and I actually used this during my KL trip during Christmas last year. Just this sunscreen alone and some light powder over my skin and that’s it!

This sunscreen has a SPF of 50 which I think it’s not necessary for it to be so high, as I understand that the effectiveness of the SPF decrease significantly once the SPF hits 30 and above. SPF30 is actually more than sufficient for our skin, under the harmful UV rays. However, this sunscreen is great at blocking UVA and UVB rays. SPF50 for blocking UVA rays and PA+++ for UVB rays.

Here is the ingredients list:

There is fragrance in this, and it is definitely not overpowering. I like that this does not contain alcohol too which dries out skin whether you have oily skin or not. For me, I cannot tolerate alcohol as it will cause my skin to flare up. Thus I can conclude that this sunscreen is suitable for most people, even for those with sensitive skin.

I like that this sunscreen has a tint to it, which kind of brighten up you skin, making it perfect to wear alone or use it as a makeup base.

Once blended, you can barely see the tint, but what is great is that it brighten and smoothen out your skin, and most importantly, does not have the white overcast that some sunscreen cause! I also love that it is not as greasy as others and it is unbelievably light-weight, great for humid weathers like Singapore’s.

Where can you get this?

Available at Guardian & BHG Bugis (mid of Feb)
