Review: Innisfree Eco Safety Perfect Waterproof Sunblock

18. July 2014


I think this is the first time I review a sunscreen on my blog. Today’s post is gonna be about the Innisfree Eco Safety Perfect Waterproof Sunblock. Normally, I use normal drugstore brands when I’m looking for sunscreen, but I still had this travel-sized tube of Innisfree’s Sunblock in my sample stash, so I decided, why not give it a try and write up a post about it. So here it is:


Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. The Eco Safety Perfect Waterproof Sunblock is a 5-free product, that means that it is free of 5 commonly used ingredients, which are not beneficial. This product is free from parabens, artificial colors, talc and mineral oils. Furthermore it is animal-friendly.


The sample sized product comes in a little tube with a screw cap. as does the full-sized product. The back of the sample product contains only Korean description. As far as I know the card board paper packaging of the full-sized tube contains English description and an ingredients list. You can look up the ingredients on COSDNA. This sunblock has a 100% mineral filter composed of the two ingredients zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. It has SPF 50+/PA+++.The downside hereby is, that these physical sunblocks show a white cast upon application. Apart from these two ingredients, the list also contains niacinamide, which helps to even out the skintone. Keep in mind not to use it directly with a vitamin C containing product, but wait at least half an hour between using these two ingredients (also see my review on Secret Key Snow White Cream). The sunblock also contains organic sunflower oil and green tea.


The product itself has a citrus scent. The scent lingers on  your skin if you smell directly the part of your body you used the sunblock on. The scent is not overpowering though. The cream has a beige color. Probably in order to adapt to the skin color.It has a slight whiter cast, but it is not too bad. The cream absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t feel sticky. The product says, that since it brightens up the skin, it can be also used as primer. What I like most is, that it is waterproof. It also claims to be sebum- and sweat proof, but I think that it is not suited for oily skin faces. But for normal and dry skin this sunblock should work great. there are two other versions of this sunscreen available, one is suited better for oily skin, since it is called Eco Safety No Sebum Sunblock. The other one is the normal version (not waterproof) called Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock. You can find all these three sunscreens for around 13 US$ at W2Beauty. What are your favourite Korean Sunblocks? Anybody tried the other two versions of this cream by Innisfree?

    I have never tried Korean sunscreen product. But SPF 50 is def a perfect protection for an outdoor activity. I love how they use physical ingredients. Thanks for sharing!

    Die wollte ich mir auch schon einmal kaufen, habe mich dann aber für eine von A’Pieu entschieden die ich ganz nett finde. Diese Sample Size ist ja super niedlich ♥ und sicher ganz praktisch für die Handtasche :)

    • Frl. Schnee 8. August 2014 at 21:08

      A’Pieu hat auch ein paar schöne Produkte wie ich finde. Die kleine Größe ist wirklich praktisch für unterwegs, Davon könnte ich gut und gerne mehrere haben :D

    I’ve never tried a korean sunblock, but I need one urgent, because the one I’m using right now (Eucerin) it’s too oily, sticky and had an itchy feeling, hated really u_u

    Thank you for this review, was very helpful!

      This one wasn’t sticky or oily at all…I think there are so many Korean brand sunscreen’s availbe, there must be a couple which will be suited for you. But I didn’t try a lot either :D

    I never tried Korean sunblocks because I would have to order them online T T They sound pretty good though, especially this one! It’s a bit expensive though but I will check this out on my HK trip. I love the scent and that it’s waterproof ^-^* Thanks for this review! ♥

    • Frl. Schnee 8. August 2014 at 21:14

      I hope you’ll find a lot of sale products during your HK trip :D But, actually, it is the same here in Germany, the higher the SPF the more expansive the sunscreen is :/ I didn’t try other korean sunscreens either…unfortunatelly, because I really would love to.
