Introducing OHUI Sun Science May 18, 2011

image

I absolutely hate Europeans sun-care products, using european sun-care products created this sunblock phobia , and made me dread putting on sunblock. It was due to it’s greasy, oily, uncomfortable texture that i absolutely loathe. From La Roche Posay, to Avene, to Bioderma etc – i never really liked a single one – and even those sunscreen which claims to be made for ‘oily combination’ skin were so greasy and uncomfortable to wear. Korean sun-care products are definitely one of the best around – and those who are raving over the european and american sunscreens won’t know what’s the gold standards of sunscreens until they’ve tried sunscreens from the OHUI or HERA sun line.

OHUI’s Sun Science is a very well known sun-line together with Amore’s Hera. The most famous product in the entire line is definitely the Sun Science Powder Sunblock EX

We’re going to go through the products from this line, so you guys can pick out the perfect one for you. Note that many of these products have gone through upgrades and revamps in 2011.

4. OHUI Sun Science Whitening Sunblock SPF 45 PA +++ 화이트닝 선블록

Contains whitening ingredients such as Pearls that help illuminate the skin tone.

Texture is the liquid runny type, and not the cream type.

Keep in mind that OHUI has another Whitening Sunblock which will be introduced below.

5. OHUI Sun Science Luminous Whitening Sunblock SPF 45 PA +++  화이트닝 선블록

Don’t ask me why they have two of these, but my guess is that this is the upgraded version of it. They both have different packaging.

This sunblock has dual functions to protect the skin against UV rays and brightens it. It goes on lightly without stickiness and provides instant smoothness and suppleness to the skin without causing the heavy and thick after-feel. Fine luminous pearls instantly brightens up the skin tone. SHAKE BEFORE USE!

Like the Whitening Sunblock on top, this one has a liquid runny texture, and has a powdery finish ( like the Whoo old whitening cream), so if you like that sort of finish, give this a trrry!

Active Ingredients :

ENSULIZOLE 3.9%
OCTISALATE 4.7%
BEMOTRIZINOL 1.5%
OCTOCRYLENE 5%

ZINC OXIDE 12.3%

7. OHUI Sun Science  Perfect Sunblock Blemish Balm 퍼펙트 선블록 블레미쉬 밤

See the two spirals? They are actually two compartments that consists of a suncreen, and BB Cream! It also contains fine pearl particles to brighten up the skintone!

Another less expensive option the the LG CathyCat’s Blemish Balm SPF 50+. Same concept, different pricing! Open-mouthed smile 


8. OHUI Sun Science Smart Cover Sunblock SPF 50 스마트 커버 선블록

This is a new product that was just released last week. The packaging is a first of it’s kind – we’re still not so sure how it works, but this is sort of a sunblock + foundation. Basically the sunblock comes in 2 parts – a foundation and the sponge. It helps cover up blemishes without drying them out. The Smart Cover Sunblock has excellent water retention capacity, and avoids drying up the skin from excessive sun heat. The packaging features an airless-type of packaging to ensure hygiene and minimize waste of product ( because you only press when you need it)!

When you press a button on the bottle, foundation oozes out, and then mix the foundation together with the sponge to apply it on your face.

It comes in 2 colors.

    The Ossion sunblock of SPF40 PA++ is rather mattifying without flaking, and Charmzone’s Powder Sun SPF 40PA++ tooo. I got this O’hui Sun Science Sunblock EX Blue, which is probably good for my skin which gets dehydrated easily out in the sun.
