Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is yet another awesome product from my favorite brand Cosrx! It is formulated keeping in mind the problem of Dry Skin. We all know, that the sunscreens are usually patchy and dry, or overly greasy, and the white cast left behind by Physical Sun Block is yet another problem of many, especially those who have dry tan skin!! Then people end up thinking, we are trying to be fair by applying too much of cream! This is so unfair!! 😖
Usually people don’t have time to apply moisturizer then patiently apply sunblock and then wait for it to set!! Ask the lazy or busy people to follow this just, they will come up endless reasons to skip Sun Protection cream!! So, Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is the answer, to all the excuses!!
Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is formulated specially addressing the need of Dry Skin.
- Dry Skin: Use it during Dry Summer and Winter (This is my case). 😉
- Combination Skin: Use it during Dry Summer and Winter (If extremely Acne Prone Skin, then suitable for winter only).
- Oily Skin: Use it during Winter (If not severely Acne Prone).
Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream addresses following skincare Issues:
- Provides Protection from UVA and UVB Rays, SPF 50+ and PA+++
- Hydrates and Soothes Skin. (Contains Aloe Vera Extract).
- Provides Anti-inflammatory effect. ( Due to Aloe Vera, and Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate- a licorice Extract).
- Antioxidant Benefit. (Due to Tocopheryl Acetate, it is a Vitamin- E Acetate).
Here is an additional Benefit, that it literally has no White cast, even when used directly on extremely Dry Tanned Skin. 😍
Not Suitable for:
Since Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream has moisturizing Property, it is not suitable for Oily Skin, specially during Summer and Monsoon. Also, people who have very sensitive skin, particularly because of thermal change, it can irritate skin, as it is a Hybrid Sun Cream leaning more towards the Chemical Sunscreen Property.
Chemical Sunscreen protect skin from UV Rays, by reducing the intensity while filtering it and converting it into heat! This released heat can irritate sensitive/ acne prone Skin. But this process is not that extensive in case of cosrx, as it is in Hybrid form.
Though it has low numbers of ingredients which can irritate skin or trigger Acne, it is still always safe to check the ingredients.
From Cosdna Analysis, it can be seen that Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream does contain few base forming chemical ingredients that could irritate extremely sensitive skin. So, people who suffer from extreme skin sensitivity or have acne prone skin do check the ingredients list properly! Rest is all good to go!!
How to use:
I have used Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream during Hot Dry Summer Season! I was using it directly after my Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum! So, it’s that good at moisturizing and I was amazed that it literally leaves no white cast no matter how dry or patchy your skin is! Another great product from Cosrx for Dry Skin!! 😍
It is recommended to apply at least 30 mins before stepping out in the sun! Reapply at least within a period of 3-4 hours, especially if staying in sun for longer duration.
Packaging & Dispenser:
Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream comes in standard tube type packaging with flip on cap! 😉 The packaging and size is really compact that it would fit in any handbag!
Expiry Period: Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream has a shelf life of 3 years! But it’s always better to finish the product within 12 months after opening it!

I have nothing much to say apart from the fact that Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is a match made for Dry Skin!! NO White Cast! Not even on Dry Tan Skin!! The only thing, again I would like to point out is that Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream can be little greasy for Oily skin, specially during Summer! As, even for my Dry Skin it was little greasy during Monsoon! So, for monsoon season I switched to Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion.
