Korean Skincare Review: COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream
I am so incredibly behind with anything, gosh. I meant to post this..uhm.. 5 days prior to this day but guess what? Not only did I get flooded with early shifts at work that usually leave me ghostly apathic and sleeping at 7PM already, but on top of that the keyboard of my laptop broke (the t and e keys are not working…. which is totally fun for any language I’m communicating in.) It worked okay-ish until I had to submit my thesis but since then, it takes ages for me to finish a sentence with this keyboard.
But enough of my problems – let’s venture right into a brighter horizon, shall we? With the recent heat wave that we had in Germany, there were perfect testing conditions for my newest addition to the COSRX family, the Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. I kindly received this from Jolse upon my request and am happy to share this review with you today!
This is the only sunscreen by COSRX so far and I have been surprised that there were almost no reviews (until recently, when Picoprince reviewed this on his blog as well) despite it’s very appealing name. Or maybe that is just me but the keywords „aloe“ and „soothing“ just seem to scream out my name. If you constantly battle acne like I do, those words develop an inner calling that is very hard to resist!

….I typed out all the ingredients just to remember that I took a picture of said ingredient list before I threw the packaging out. Well. Now you have both. Extra point for thoroughness, anyone….?
….I really always appreciate COSRX‘ thorough explanations on how to use their products the correct way, especially for their products that contain acids.
This sunscreen comes in the standard (too tiny) 50ml plastic squeeze tube and I am just praying for the day when some marketing expert suggests bigger bottles so we don’t have to constantly repurchase tiny sunscreen bottles. The day will come, I am certain of that! Maybe. Please….? The packaging is simple and quite non-exciting as all products from COSRX; I love the fresh green accents though as green is my favorite color.
Lots of love and talk to you soon!
