Sunplay Skin Aqua UV whitening moisture gel vs UV mild gel


Sharing my personal thoughts and  comparison on Sunplay Skin Aqua UV whitening moisture gel and UV mild gel.






For this blogpost, I'll refer Sunplay Skin Aqua UV whitening moisture gel as "Whitening Moisture Gel (pink)" and Skin Aqua UV mild gel as "Mild Gel (yellow)"

Similarities:

I bought both of this since both contain no alcohol and no fragrance. I memang nak cari sunscreen yang tak ada alcohol. You can read about it here: Alcohol free sunscreen from drugstore. Kenapa nak cari yang tak ada alcohol? Sebab normally, skincare products with high alcohol makes my skin dry. And I have dry skin. Although it also depends on the formulation. Ada skincare yang buat kulit I pedih, ada yang okay. Also read: Alcohol in skincare



Claims:

Both claims to have hydrating ingredients, light, gentle and mild formula. Both also contains no alcohol, fragrance and mineral oil with low irritation.

Whitening Moisture Gel (pink): Contains Arbutin to help fight dark spots for visibly fair & radiant skin
 Mild Gel (yellow): Protects skin against environmental pollution

Kalau nak ada brightening ingredients, boleh try yang Whitening Moisture Gel (pink). Kalau rasa nak pergi area yang banyak asap or jerebu, boleh try yang  Mild Gel (yellow)

SPF & PA rating

Whitening Moisture Gel (pink): SPF50 PA++
 Mild Gel (yellow): SPF30 PA+++

Which one is better? Takde. Whitening Moisture Gel (pink) tu high SPF protection tapi moderate PA protection. Mild Gel (yellow) tu okay lah SPF30 for daily use and high PA protection. Enough kalau nak guna setiap hari dekat Malaysia kalau tak berjemur teruk sangat.

UV Filters


Whitening Moisture Gel (pink): 
5 types of UV filters which are
1. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (Octinoxate) - may cause allergic reaction to some people (tapi I okay je) 
2. Homosalate - UVB protection 
3. Ethylhexyl Triazone 
4. Bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine (Tinosorb S) 
5. Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate - (Univul A Plus) which is a very good UVA protection

 Mild Gel (yellow): 
2 types of UV filters which also contains in Whitening Moisture Gel (pink):
1. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (Octinoxate) 
2. Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate (Univul A Plus)

Both sunscreen are chemical sunscreen sebab dia tak ada physical filter, either titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.


Packaging


Both comes in a same plastic squeezable bottle with a white screwable cap cuma Whitening Moisture Gel is in pink bottle while Mild Gel is in yellow bottle. 

Texture and finishing




Left, Whitening Moisture Gel (pink) and right, Mild Gel (yellow). As seen in the picture, Whitening Moisture Gel (pink) is more white-ish and light gel almost like milk while Mild Gel (yellow) is more transparent gel and quite thicker. In terms of absorption, Whitening Moisture Gel (pink) lagi cepat absorb and leaves a smooth finish while Mild Gel (yellow) is quite tacky and lambat nak absorb.

Scent

Whitening Moisture Gel (pink): Quite strong sunscreen smell
 Mild Gel (yellow): No noticeable scent. Kalau ada pun, very mild

Price & size

Whitening Moisture Gel (pink): 80g
 Mild Gel (yellow): 110g

The price is almost the same, around RM30+ during sale. Normal price around RM40+.



Which one I like the most?

I prefer Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Mild Gel (yellow) because the texture isn't drying, I like how my skin feels after applying the sunscreen. It also has no noticeable smell, no whitecast, and size dia lagi besar, lambat nak habis. Although the SPF protection tak tinggi sampai SPF30 tapi ok la for daily use. For your reference, I have dry skin so if you have oily skin, you might not like this hehe
