The sun brings life to all living things. It brings energy, light, and happiness. But I’m a special case. Whenever I come in contact with the sunlight, I hiss and immediately try to find a shade. I might even be low-key vampire but judging how I don’t burst into dust in sunlight points otherwise. I’m not really fond of the sun as my skin is the type to get sunburned real easily. And also I like being pale like milk. Okay, maybe that’s too far but I’ve always been pale my whole life and I’m not even joking, some of my friends say I practically glow in the dark LOL. So sun protection is really important to me as I try to maintain my pale skin (well, my skin can’t tan easily so it’s either being pale or become sunburnt like burnt bacon). But me being a real lazy person, I didn’t start using sun cream up until age 22-23 which is pretty late. BUT it’s better late than never LOOOL. So I was in need for a new sun cream since my previous one (Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Suncream SPF 50+ PA+++… will later do a full review on this also) was irritating my skin. I started to get little bumps whenever I had the sun cream on my face. I really wanted to like it since it made my face matte but it broke out my skin. However, the Innisfree Triple Care cream went on fine on my skin.
Innisfree Background: Innisfree is a Korean cosmetic brand that is focused on using natural ingredients from Korea’s Jeju Island. Their name is derived from William Butler Yeats’s poem “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” which expresses a longing to leave urban life to a peaceful island. Their goal is to create products using natural ingredients and provide innovative and affordable skincare that targets skin concerns.
Product Details: Innisfree Perfect UV Triple Care Protection Cream (50mL) is a lightweight sun cream that has a SPF of 50+. It contains sunflower oil and Jeju green tea extract and free of parabens, mineral oil, and synthetic fragrance. The purpose of this sun cream is to improve wrinkles, whiten the skin, but most importantly, to provide sun protection. It’s also water resistant! It comes tinted with a medium thick creamy consistency. It’s not completely free of some fragrance smell but it’s definitely not overpowering.

Price: Hmm, I think the price range for this sun cream is okay. It’s under $10 so it’s pretty affordable.
Performance: The sun cream feels really lightweight on the skin. It doesn’t feel heavy at all or makes me feel like I have some greasy film on my face. It does leave a shine but definitely not some oily shine but more dewy. It is a little tacky when putting it on but it leaves my face matte after some time. The cream will whiten your face like it said it will do but not to the point where it gives you 3 different shades from your original skin color LOL. It does a decent job of controlling my oil as my face leans more towards oily/combination. But a big plus is that it didn’t break out my skin like my previous sun cream.
Conclusion: I think this is a decent standard sunblock that matches well with oily/combination skin. It may be too drying for people who have dry skin. I always liked Innisfree products as they are reliable and doesn’t contain harsh formulas. So if you’re in need for a sun cream, this is a good one! As for me, I think I’ll explore other sun cream products but this one will definitely stay in my skincare collection. My rating for this product is 3/5.
