The Face Shop Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ (Review)

The Face Shop Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion is one of the two new products from the Natural Sun line.

The Face Shop *NEW* Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion and Smart Handiness sun SPF 50+ PA+++

Natural Sun AQ SMart Handiness
Comes with a slanted sponge at the tip of the product for easy application. Contains extracts from sunflowers sprout, rich in vitamins and minerals with powerful anti-oxidant effects. Strong immune functions strengthen skin protection against harmful substances including the evil UV rays.

Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion 
Has a smartly cushion sponge that the apply without clumping. It gives a translucent finish, providing natural skin tone without any shine. An innovative portable 3-in-1 function sun screen. It has UV protection, cooling effect and makeup effect all in ONE.

These 2 new smart additions now complete the whole set of the "must-have" sunscreen for the coming summer.

 Smart Handiness sun SPF 50+ PA+++ look interesting also.. I will go check this out at the store ^,^

Ok, back to "Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion SPF50+ PA+++"

Got a stopper(kind of) cap to prevent the product from drying (so have to close it tight)

I always find that the cushion look abit "creepy" close-up - isn't it???(goose bumps)

Came with a "waterproof" puff that won't "eat"(absorb) the sunblock

A bit messy when using finger to get the products and not very hygiene.

Use the puff provided, the puff make the application breezy and the finishing look so much better then blending out with the fingers.

A tinted sunblock

I love their previous version (which have been replaced with the new Natural Sun collection with new formula) - Natural Sun Shaking AQ base sun milk SPF50+ PA+++ (review)

This Natural Sun AQ Smart Cushion is a tinted sunblock, feel like a lightweight bbcream which has very similar texture as the Natural Sun Shaking AQ base sun milk.

  • Lightweight
  • Moisturizing
  • Doesn't feel thick nor sticky
  • Easy to spread all over the skin
  • No irritation
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation
  • Does feel a little bit greasy(wet) when first applied on the skin.

  • Has dewy finishing
    If don't like the glow, can just use a piece of tissue to dap off the excess serum on the skin surface.

  • Skin look radiance, but cos of the pigment, it does look alittle bit dark(warm) on my fair skin.
    (I normally will apply a thin layer of power foundation or bbcream on top for extra coverage and lightening up the shade)

  • Doesn't leave any white cast on my face
  • Has a sheer coverage
    The tint was abit "dark" for me (but it will set down to a warm shade, if don't pay too much attention on the overall (body/neck/face) it still look OK... lolx
  • No flakey residue
  • Does even out redness and uneven skin discoloration.
  • Does minimize the pore size a bit

I enjoy using this sunscreen alot (I just love The Face Shop sunscreen)...  the only downside was that cushion product always use up so fast!!! (I very much prefer tube form, cos they contains more product and I don't mind spending time trying blending and even out the product on my skin.

The good think about cushion product is that they make application so much faster... just dap and spread on the skin.... it won't pick up too much product each time when using the puff.

After spending out the sunblock on the skin
(Can see it's a little warm on my skin, but won't make me look like I just tanned my face)

I'm a fan of glossy, dewy base finishing... so I don't mind the glossy finishing at all!
