Sun protection is an all-seasons product: we need vitamin D from the sun, but too many rays can cause skin cancer. Your faces is especially at risk, so cover up.

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++ (HK$128/50ml)

This particularly runny product spreads easily on skin and is absorbed remarkably quickly. Leaves skin feeling moist and smooth - so much more than just a sun screen, especially at this price.
