I have now tried 5 Asian sunscreens from YesStyle. 3 were amazing but the other 2 were not. Today’s post will be a full review and demo on the OMI Solanoveil Protect Face Milk SPF 50 PA+++. This is alcohol-free and has ‘beauty care’ ingredients like hyaluronic acid and arbutin.
The texture of this sunscreen is extremely lightweight and runny, I don’t think the ‘milk’ texture describes it well. Unfortunately, this sunscreen is not suitable for dark skin and it leaves a very tell-tale white cast on the skin. It doesn’t feel extremely matte on the skin. I got this after watching a review on YT and they commented on how invisible it was on the skin. The Youtuber was white however I do also watch her other videos as she has used quite a lot of Asian sunscreen reviews. I got some of the other SPF’s she has used and they were fine on my skintone. If you have white to light skin this sunscreen may be able to work for you. It’s one of the few Asian sunscreens I have come across that is alcohol-free.
Not suitable for dark skin unless you cover it with makeup however it may have flashback. I wouldn’t recommend it as there are other SPFs that are 100% invisible. I am getting 4 more Asian sunscreens to test out before I start working on my Asian sunscreen edit. For now, you can check out the other Asian SPFs I have reviewed: Missha SPF 45, OMI Waterproof SPF 50

I have been incorporating Asian skincare items in my routine since March and so far so good! I have a few reviews of the items I have picked up form YesStyle on the blog and making my way through the rest of them.
Today’s post will be a full review and demo of the Kose – Clear Turn 30 Botanical Essence In Cotton. These are cotton pads soaked in 30 unique essences from botanical extracts and promise to soften and hydrate the skin.
These are like square sheet masks and the directions are to apply after cleansing and leave on for 5 mins. It doesn’t state the essences on YesStyle. It comes in a big pack of 72 squares.
I originally got these to use as neck & chest masks when I have my sheet mask on. It doesn’t work well as a neck sheet mask because it doesn’t stay in place understand but for the face and chest, it works well. The squares have a subtle pleasant scent and I did not experience any irritation from them. I have used the squares as sheet masks (in the pic below) however lately I have been using them as toner wipes, using them in the mornings, one for the face and another for the neck before misting with Vitamin E from the BodyShop. These square are pleasant to use and they do leave my skin hydrated. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue and it doesn’t pill under other skincare.
It is well packaged. I have had this pack open since March and they are still wet and haven’t dried out on me! The only con I can think of is that the squares are quite thin, they come out in duos instead of one but they can be separated easily. The cotton material doesn’t break apart when wiping the face with it.
These are great to use as sheet masks or toner wipes. I find them hydrating and very easy to use. The bulk size of these means they will last ages and they won’t dry out! Not great as neck sheet masks (what is though? it’s a tricky area) but fantastic for the face and chest! I am very happy with this and will purchase again. If you love sheet masks, I will recommend this. This is my second product from Kose and I am impressed. I will definitely keep my eye on this brand!
