Introducing Sunkiller The Ultra Sun Protection

In September 2013, A new sun protection brand's Sunkiller launches a collection of  5 different sunscreen that will match every skin types and conditions.



Sunkiller is the first brand in the mass market in Japan to launch a sunscreen with PA++++ , The perfect Strong Plus. This protection grade, determined by the Japan Cosmetic Industry Association, gives you the highest known protection against UVA rays, the main culprit for skin ageing!


Suncare meets skincare
To nourish your skin while protecting it, Sunkiller boasts a string of high-performance ingredients, such as collagen, marine collagen, chamomile extract, aloe extract, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C and E.

The perfect non-sticky texture
Is a well-loved trademark across all Sunkiller products ‒ and the reason why its sales in Japan eclipsed those of its competitors.

With 20 years of suncare expertise
and such compelling benefits, it’s no wonder Sunkiller is a well-loved brand, selling over 50 millions products since its launch in 1993, and expanding to markets beyond Japan, such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand and China.



I got excited when see a wide range of sunscreen products from a brand, because.. I'm a sunblock junkie and wide selection means I don't have to limit myself to a type that doesn't suit my skin condition or a texture that I don't like. And, I can switch up when my skin condition changes (which is pretty often, I can have oily skin one day and then painful dehydrated flakey skin the next day)

Anyway, it doesn't hurt our pocket much with the wallet-friendly price tag - SD$14.90 (30ml) each.

        Swatches of all the 5 sunscreen side by side

        When I swatch the sunscreen on my arms and the back of my hand (I haven't try this on my face yet.. so this is just my initial thoughts on each sunscreen base on texture)

        All the sunscreen does have a slight greasy feel when I try to spread it out on the back of my hand... feel smooth and easy to spread. All set quite nicely on the skin, skin feels smooth and doesn't have any oily nor sticky finishing.

        Mild Milk (The light pink bottle) does has a slight blue tint when I spread the sunscreen over my skin.. but it set nicely without any white cast.

        Cool Perfect Strong (The blue bottle) - has a nice cooling sensation on the skin.. very nice to use on a hot hot hot day and  will helps to cool down skin temperature. (Yeah to prevent skin inflammation.. which I have been suffering lately!!!)

        Clear Water A (The light blue bottle) is the lightest, most wastery texture as compare to the rest. So watery that the texture feels like a "thicker" version of Japanese lotion (the lotion we apply before moisturizer..)
