Cuura Invisible Protector SPF50 PA+++ Review

Cuura Invisible Protector SPF50 PA++ Review

This is a local product. In case kalau korang tanya kan. I've tried Cuura sunscreen before because they sent them to me but with their old packaging dalam bentuk pump. I did post my thoughts on them but bukan full review.

The only problem with the old packaging is the pump, bila dah nak dekat habis tu, I notice pump dia macam tak function properly. So when I saw there's a new packaging, I terus beli! 

I bought directly from the website sebab I tahu apa yang I nak and terus je lah beli directly, bayar, and tunggu dia sampai rumah. The price is RM49 for 30ml. I personally think the price is quite expensive but it's a local product, I understand the cost is a bit higher. This is one of the local product yang I sanggup repurchase sebab suka and design cantik sebab pink. Pantang ye nampak pink, terus beli tanpa berfikir hahaha.

What it claims?
An eco- friendly broad- spectrum sunscreen enriched with plant extracts. The combination of these powerful antioxidants and age- defying botanicals provide effective sun protection against UVA and UVB rays (SPF50+ PA++++) with the help of mineral sunblock from natural origin while also caring for the skin. This sunscreen will blend well to match any type of skin tone. It is very moisturizing, light texture, non- greasy, effective light coverage, and does not clog your pores which is suitable to be used as an everyday wear  before heading out.

Aqua, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoymethane, Octocrylene, Phospholipids, Titanium Dioxide, Glycerin, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Lecithin, Phenoxythanol, Simondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Oil, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract, Isononyl Isononanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Chlorphenesin

Sunscreen filters:
Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (Octinoxate)
Butyl Methoxydibenzoymethane (Avobenzone)
Titanium Dioxide

It comes in a 30ml opaque white tube and a white screwable cap. The nozzle size is just nice to dispense the product. However, I prefer a flap cap sebab senang nak guna and penutup tak hilang. All the details and ingredients are printed clearly on the box.

No noticeable scent that I noticed.

It has a white creamy texture that blends nicely into the skin without any white cast. I love this kind of texture, it's not drying for my skin but definitely not sticky or greasy. Reminds me of the texture of Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence and Canmake Mermaid Gel UV yang I suka.

My thoughts on Cuura Invisible Protector
This is a hybrid sunscreen since it contains both physical and chemical filters. The filters are the same used in Yadah Oh My Suncreen. Certain people are sensitive with chemical filters and they would like to avoid them so this is your personal choice lah either you want to use it or not.

Also read about mineral / physical filters and why people prefer them: https://www.imanabdulrahim.com/2019/08/mineral-physical-sunscreen.html

It has SPF50 which is enough kalau duduk Malaysia. However I am bit confused with the PA rating. Dekat kotak tulis PA++, dekat the bottle tulis PA+++ and dekat website tulis PA++++.

I love the texture and it's really suitable for my dry skin. There is no irritating ingredients such as alcohol, fragrance, essential oils. It's a bit hard to find local products yang tak ada semua ni, and I'm glad Cuura tak letak semua benda benda ni in this sunscreen. Kalau ada, confirm I tak akan beli sendiri dah haha. There's no pilling, tak ada keluar macam habuk habuk tu kalau reapply and it's good to use underneath makeup too. Tak buat makeup bercapuk or pelik.

As for it's claim, "moisturizing, light texture, non- greasy, effective light coverage, and does not clog your pores", I would agree! It's non-greasy for me but if you have really oily skin, it might be a bit greasy for you. And this product is not fungal acne safe.

This sunscreen is waterproof so you need to remove it properly kalau nak solat. Using micellar water should be enough to remove it.

No irritating ingredients (no alcohol, no fragrance, no essential oils)
No white cast
Cute design (sorry I bias kalau pink :P)

Size is a bit small, 30ml kejap sangat boleh guna
The price is quite expensive compared to other sunscreen on the market
Not fungal acne safe
