Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV Review

Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV ni dah lama sangat I nak try! So here is my review.

I bought this sunscreen during Guardian 50% cosmetic sale. Time tu semua benda cosmetic ada 50% including this sunscreen sebab dia ada dekat kawasan Canmake makeup. I dah lama aim nak beli tapi dekat SASA jual aorund RM50++, Hermo RM60++. Mahal for only 40ml of product. So bila sale, confirm lah kena beli.

Since July 2017 dah teringin nak beli. Tapi bila sale baru beli hehehe #jimat . Harga kat Guardian RM59.90, sale dapat RM29.95. Menyesal tak beli banyak banyak terus :(

The reason why I nak sangat this sunscreen is because ada BANYAK GILA good reviews tapi bukan from Malaysia. So I curious sangat and I thought tak ada dekat Malaysia. RUPANYA ADA. Faham tak excited tu macam mana?!

Packaging and design
It comes in a 40 ml plastic squeezable tube with a screwable cap. The design is also quite nice with the shiny silver tube and some seashells. Comel. Tapi 40ml ni sikit sangat for a sunscreen. Tak sampai sebulan boleh habis!

Texture and finishing
It has a white gel-cream consistency, that leaves a very minimal white cast. Tapi bila dah fully absorb, tak ada pun nampak whitecast sangat. The texture is quite sticky sebab dia tak ada alcohol so dia lambat sikit absorb, tapi bila dah absorb, it leaves a beautiful satin finish.

I like the scent. It's almost like coconut, tapi I tak sure lah coconut ke apa, tapi bau dia very mild and best. Tak ada bau sunscreen yang kuat tu.

My experience
My first impression with this product is that it absorbs quite fast compared to my other sunscreens yang tak ada alcohol, sebab my previous sunscreen memang rasa melekit. And this one tak ada the sticky feeling which I feel a bit weird. Tapi tak rasa kering.

Bila pakai lama lama, I makin suka. Dah lah bau best, tak melekit, best pakai under makeup, tak ada whitecast sangat. And sekejap je habis lepastu I sedih sebab cepat sangat habis. Tak puas faham tak?! Nak beli lagi, tapi normal price mahal. Faham tak dilema tu?!

For me, ingredients dia okay je. Yang penting tak ada alcohol sebab kalau alcohol banyak sangat, my skin tak sesuai. And tak ada rasa panas ke, breakout ke, merah merah ke, tak ada. It's easy to apply, not drying at all, very comfortable. Dia tak sweat, water, sebum resistant so boleh hilangkan pakai air je. Senang nak pakai and kalau nak solat. 

Cuma yang sedihnya, harga dia quite expensive kalau tak ada sale and sikit sangat. Kenapa 40ml je, kenapaaaaaa.

Conclusion dia, BEST.

Pros: No alcohol, no fragrance, no paraben, very minimal white cast, nice finish, not drying, easy to apply

Cons: Small and quite expensive for me

Recommended for?
Dry/normal/combination/sensitive skin

Who will not love this?
Very oily

Will I repurchase?
YES OF COURSE (kalau ada sale)

That's all, thanks for reading!
