In today’s review I want to share my impressions about sinscrire South Korean brand HERA, specializing in the production of cosmetics of premium class using both traditional recipes and modern technology.
Sunscreen Korean brand named after the Greek goddess, I noticed a long time ago. Since then, I got the information that they are holders of numerous awards in their homeland. From the variety presented in the sun the line of the brand, I chose the waterproof cream Sun Mate Leports with the highest possible degree of protection SPF 50+/PA++++.
For fun I chose the option in the amount of 30 ml. Sunscreen also available in the full version with a volume of 70 ml.
Sunscreen contains a patented formula Cell2.0 ™.
The cream has a waterproof formula, well prevents dehydration of the skin. The cream restores and strengthens the protective barrier for the skin against ultraviolet rays for a long time will retain moisture, gives skin a feeling of comfort. Creates a coating that prevents moisture loss skin, protects the skin from photoaging. Formula Dermo-network™ 2.0 combines the antioxidant properties of beta-carotene, sunflower oil and vitamin E.

I bought the copy all information presented in Korean, so the composition had to search the Internet.

As is typical for most Korean manufacturers, the composition is very rich. However, I am in the Sun Mate Leports attracts a good combination of modern stable sunscreen.
• Octinoxate: one of the most commonly used chemical filter that absorbs UVB rays.
• Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate (trade name Uvinul A Plus): high-performance photostable filter of the latest generation, developed by the German company BASF. Absorbs UVA rays.
•BisEthylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine (trade nazwie Tinosorb S): a further development of BASF — modern, very photostable, water filter wide spectrum, blocking all types of rays (UVB, UVA1 and UVA2) and characterized with low degree of penetration into the skin.
• Titanium Dioxide: physical filter photostable, protects against UVB and UVA2 rays, but do not give full protection against the entire UVA spectrum.
The smell of the cream is very pleasant, slightly sweet, not Intrusive.
Consistency is also very comfortable — is a lightweight buttery creamy shade, which is perfectly spread over the skin. After soaking it leaves a beautiful luminous satin finish that looks very advantageous on the skin with good terrain.
Consumption standard. With regular use, 30 ml will last about a month.
For me personally Sun Mate Leports met all the expectations placed on it, so I’m ready to subscribe to the laudatory reviews of this masterpiece of the Korean cosmetic industry. I have a combination skin (with some minor reservations, it can even be called normal), and I sunscreen approached 100%.
If we go more details:
☆ quickly absorbed, without leaving your face greasy and/or sticky residue.
☆ very comfortable “sitting” on the face: does not provoke the effect of the vacuum mask, which suffocates the skin; does not dry and, moreover, felt more like just quality: cream which maintains the natural moisture level and gives a tactile sensation soft sleek skin.
☆ totally not smooth, doesn’t leave streaks. Can act as a base for makeup, although I really like the finish, so I prefer to wear a cream solo. Max — go on top of the powder with a light coating.
☆ has good resistance. Do not run away during the day, not turning into mush from moisture or light touch.
☆ provoked irritation and other negative reactions, which is very important to me, as I put sunscreen including on the sensitive skin around the eyes. Unfortunately, in my experience the situation when sunscreen well behaved on the face and disgusting as it approaches the eyes, are not uncommon.
☆ I haven’t tested the Sun Mate Leports in some extremely hot conditions, but for some reason I have a strong belief that there he will prove excellent. Complaints about the quality of protection sunscreen based on own experience I have not.
The result: a great sunscreen, which I’m sure will long remain among my favorites. Once again convinced that it is better Asians while no one in the world learned to make sunscreen 🙂
Ready warmly recommend it to all owners of dry and normal skin, as well as my “colleagues” — the girls with neproblemny combination skin. For oily and combination (with a bias towards oily) skin cream may be to have enough light texture. Some matting effect, I have not felt, and satin shiny finish can be a nuisance, so in this case I advise you to start with probes)
Price: ~ 530 p. for 30 ml (the cost of a full-sized version in the range of 1500-2000 rubles per 70 ml)
Testing period: 1 month
