Possible dupe!! When I first applied this 【XOY Grapefruit Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++】on my face, the immediate gel-to-water texture reminded me so much of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence -- in terms of texture and smell. Performance wise, I find the XOY one much more hydrating.
According to the brand, this sun cream contains an antioxidant-rich Superfood 11 Complex to help protect, repair and strengthen the skin. These superfoods include Grapefruit, Oat, Green Tea, Garlic Bulb, Brazil Nut, Broccoli, Blueberry, Spinach, Salmon Egg, Wine and Tomato. Besides providing high amount of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it also helps whiten and brighten the complexion naturally. I especially love that it lends a gentle cooling effect when freshly applied!
Compared with typical "overachieving, all powerful" sun screens out there, this Grapefruit Sun Cream is surprisingly hydrating without heaviness, and it absorbs and mattifies without much user effort.
At ₩25,000 /50ml, I am going to save it for good days when I am not working and am just going out to hang, play or party. I will be slowly reviewing and featuring some of their other products too so stay tuned! In the mean time, do check them out at @xoybeauty and @xoy_life
