5 drugstore alcohol-free sunscreens that I've tried

5 drugstore alcohol free sunscreen that I've tried and some mini reviews!

I've tried a few sunscreen without alcohol from drugstore (yang senang nak dapat from Watsons/Guardian/any pharmacy) since my skin can't tolerate high % of alcohol, buat kulit jadi pedih and kering. Kalau low % takpe. Nak selamat, cari yang tak ada alcohol terus lah, senang.

Salah satu function alcohol dalam skincare ialah supaya product yang kita pakai tu senang nak absorb kedalam kulit. So kalau takde alcohol, product susah nak absorb and sometimes rasa melekit. So sebenarnya it depends on your preference. Kalau nak cari sunscreen yang tak ada alcohol, you can try the sunscreens yang I'll list down below :)
