My Thoughts on Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel 

This is my first product from Isntree, and of course, I was really excited to try this. I've been seeing my social media exploding with good reviews for this sunscreen, so I just had to try it for myself.

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel, its formulation is pretty much made of skin-protecting ingredients such as Ceramide, Centella Asiatica, Panthenol and more. It also contains Niacinamide and, of course, Hyaluronic Acid. The ingredient list looks so promising with no irritating ingredients and is full of skin-loving ingredients.

It comes in a fully covered plastic tube with a screw cap and a small snout. The design is simple, and the tube functions well. The labels are in Korean and English. I have no complaints about the packaging, but I would really appreciate it if it was a flip cap instead.

The texture isn't watery; it doesn't drip at all; however, it does make sense if it's a watery 'gel'. It's has a lightweight gel-like cream texture, it's more like a lotion, and it quickly absorbs into the skin than other sunscreens. I'm impressed! You'll be seeing white cast during the application, but it's all gone in a few seconds after it's completely rubbed in. It gives a dewy finish to the skin.

It doesn't have fragrance, but it does have a slight scent. During application, the scent is noticeable, but it fades away quickly too.

I've been using this for a couple of days already, and so far, I have not experienced any irritation or bad reactions. I love that it has a high SPF and that it absorbs quickly into the skin, making it the perfect sunscreen for rushed mornings. It is also easy to rinse off and good for reapplication too. I did not experience any breakouts, and it doesn't sting my eyes either. The best of all is that it's not sticky.

However, it tends to make my combination skin way too shiny after a while. It doesn't really look pleasing to me, and if I sweat, my skin feels greasy. So it isn't a good option for me to use it when I'm working out as it isn't waterproof. Another thing I noticed is that it doesn't feel that hydrating as it claims; I just feel oiliness after a while.

Overall Thoughts
It's a decent sunscreen for me; I like using it as I start my day because I usually chase time, and this Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel from Isntree is super quick to apply. However, it isn't my choice of sunscreen for reapplication as my skin doesn't go well with it when I tend to sweat. I can say I could finish up this tube within 2 months as 50ml is quite small. I probably won't be repurchasing this again, but I'll definitely be finishing this tube.
