Product Review: Missha All Around Safe Block

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.


If there's one thing my mom drilled into me as a kid, it's to take SPF seriously. My mother used to never let me out of the house unless I put on sunscreen of some kind. The older I get, the more I appreciate her advice as do a lot of other K-Beauty brands. If you've dipped your toes in the beauty community at all, you'll know that SPF is big thing because not only does it protect you against the sun's harmful UV radiation, it prevents skin cancers and premature aging. It'd be crazy not to use it, right?
I used to think sunscreens were basically all the same until I came across Missha's Safeblock in SPF 45. Missha is a Korean skincare brand and it's a popular one among k-beauty aficionados all over.

Packaging

To be honest the packaging isn't really anything to write home about. The sunscreen comes in a pink plastic squeezable bottle. It's practical and functional, doesn't spill, and gives me the right amount every squeeze though.
3.5/5

Formula

What this product lacks in pretty packaging more than makes up for in formula...and then some! Before I used this, I thought all sunscreens would give me that greasy look. Not this one - it feels more like a moisturizer and finishes with a more dry sheen. I've never seen anything like it! It also layers perfectly under foundation and BB cream, but it looks fine on it's own too - you can hardly tell it's there. It's a great sunscreen for your everyday makeup look for sure. 
5/5

Price

Here's the best part about this sunscreen - it's incredibly affordable! At Target you can get this for only $15 but on Amazon you can find it for under $10! What a steal! 
5/5

Have you tried Korean sunscreens before? What are some of your favorite brands?

  1. Aww their shipping and duty fees to Canada cost the same amount as the product itself :( I'll be sure to look out for this in any Asian beauty stores here in Toronto, it sounds great!

  2. Oh I've never heard of this but it sounds awesome! :)

    I've switched back to my regular non-pregnancy/breastfeeding friendly BB cream, and like the one I was using in pregnancy, it has SPF in it. I think they've changed the formula though, I got a bit sunburnt yesterday and had to put on some of the kid's sunscreen on top of my BB cream in the middle of the day. Should've worn a hat!

    Hope you had a great weekend :) We went to a theme park, a nice way to relax after a stressful sick-filled week! Aside from my mild sunburn!
