Applying sunscreen is a vital step to our skincare routine, especially in Singapore’s hot tropical climate. There are tons of sunscreens out in the market, which make us spoilt for choice. Being Asian, should we select Western brands or continue to trust Asian brands? What about cost vs. effectiveness? Does it mean expensive sunscreens perform the best?

C/o Datumou Recipe, an online site dedicated to testing Japanese cosmetics and beauty services, I got to try out 3 popular Japanese sunscreens from their curated list of top 12.

Most of the foundations I tried in the market do not last on my skin but thankfully after years of experimenting, testing and trying, I managed to shortlist my top 5 favourites!

Price is never an issue for me because it’s all about finding the best foundation for my skin type. Interestingly, my five choices here range from the luxurious to the pocket-friendly ones.

With the BB Cushion craze going on for quite some time now, it’s high time European brands jump on the bandwagon and release their own versions too!

BB Cushion users, you’ll be glad to know that the best-selling foundation range (also undoubtedly my favourite foundation since I started using makeup) – the Double Wear – from Estée Lauder, now carries a BB Cushion!
