I would say that sunscreen is very personal to any skincare enthusiast as I personally have tried over 50 different products before knowing my own set of preference when it comes to choosing the right UV protection products for my skin condition.
On regular skin days, I would be needing nice tone-up sunscreens that have lightweight consistency that also considerably hydrate my skin while protecting my skin well for hours with high SPF and broad spectrum. This Light Sun Fluid SPF50+ PA+++ from LANEIGE not only ticks all the boxes of my ideal sunscreen, it also works well even when my skin is a little bit dehydrated but that’s not all. First, let’s get down with some basic details on this product.
What’s Good about this Sunscreen?
- Has light texture that goes on nicely on skin and highly resistant to water and sweat.
- Contains mint water that give soothing effect onto the skin.
- The Selective Oil Balancing Powder effectively keeping the skin’s oil and moisture in balance.
- LANEIGE Water Screen™ provides moisture to skin by forming a moisturising protective layer that shield the skin from external stressors.
How to Use:
- Shake before use.
- Apply an adequate amount on the face and neck at the final step of skincare.
- Apply generously 15 minutes before sun exposure (or makeup).
Capacity: 50ml – About 2 to 3 months of daily applications.

The sunscreen comes in its own box with English product information printed at the back but there’s also a leaflet included for full description of the brand’s sunscreen line.
As shown above, the sunscreen comes with a simple screw cap with a small tube-end for easy product dispense and there’s simplified product descriptions printed at the back of the bottle too for a quick reference.
The Expiry Date is printed at the bottom of the bottle in YYYYMMDD (Year-Month-Day) format
Before each application of this sunscreen, I’m going to need to shake the bottle for few seconds before dispensing sufficient amount of product onto the back of my hand.
As you can see, the sunscreen is almost opaque but goes on nicely and gives slightly toned up effect once spread well with comfortable semi-matte finish on skin.
There’s a somewhat fresh scent to this sunscreen as with other LANEIGE products but it’s definitely not overpowering and doesn’t bother me at all.
While the sunscreen adheres well for hours on skin without piling up; some of my lightweight or sebum-controlling sunscreens do after several hours, I do have the the habit of applying facial mist every couple of hours to keep my skin well-hydrated in my fully air-conditioned office. To complement the sunscreen, I’d be using the Water Bank Hydro Mist also from the same brand that’s also lightweight yet hydrating while also refreshing the skin at the same time.
With the new norm of wearing face mask for about 4 to 8 hours a day, I’d only be applying and reapplying sunscreen throughout the hours whether I’m working at the office or staying outdoor.
I’d use LANEIGE Perfect Makeup Cleansing Water to remove the layers of sunscreen at the end of the day and followed by water-based cleanser for my double-cleansing method. I do carry this no-rinse micellar water in smaller bottle in my makeup bag to remove my light makeup and then apply the above facial mist prior sunscreen reapplication for my midday skincare routine.
Overall, I give this sunscreens 5/5. I do love applying and reapplying the sunscreen throughout the day as it works well even with my currently dehydrated normal to oily skin.
Knowing that this sunscreen provides a layer of moisture on the skin while also giving UV protection, I actually did applied it right after cleansing and toning in the morning; skipping my day cream and thankfully didn’t feel the usual dryness or see any sign of irritation along my sensitised facial area.
As this sunscreen contains peppermint extract, it’s possible that this product might irritate the skin especially if you’re allergic towards the ingredient but I haven’t got any negative reaction even after finishing a whole bottle so far.
