[Video] K/J-Beauty SPFs! Review + Swatches! Be Plain / KEEP COOL / Canmake / NEOGEN

Hey Guys!

I ordered Korean/Japanese SPFs from both Yesstyle and Stylevana (I find if one website doesn’t have the thing, then the other website will) – I asked those of you on Patreon if you wanted to see a Swatch video, and you said yes!

So here is the video! I discuss each SPF, their key ingredients, what they’re meant to do (other than protect one from the sun of course) and how they differ!

I show the swatches in both natural and artificial light so you can see if there is a white cast.

The Video! – Review + Swatches + Comparison + Recommendations

I hope you guys enjoy watching the video and find it useful!

I always aim to go for SPF50+ PA++++ products, so I’m happy that I can show you some good picks! I think there will be at least ONE SPF you may like the look of!

Products Mentioned:

NEOGEN Dermalogy – Probiotics Relief Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++ – 50ml

Stylevana Link: HERE

*UK Website) HERE

  • I was pleasantly surprised by this! I thought it would be shiny/greasy looking, but it was quite the opposite! Also I did enjoy the smell (even though I always prefer unscented to scented). I like the multimolecular HAs added in here as well to ensure hydration while wearing!

Canmake – Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50+ PA++++ – 50ml

Yesstyle Link: HERE

Stylevana Link: (US): HERE

UK Website: HERE

The White Version (UK): HERE


  • For me, this was probably my least favourite? But I’m not a fan of the Purito SPF, and to me this was quite similar to it in terms of texture. This is because of the sort of silicone-y base that doesn’t seem to disappear? I really want my SPF to feel like I’m not wearing SPF.

KEEP COOL – Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+ PA++++ – 50ml

Yesstyle Link: HERE

Stylevana Link: HERE

Stylevana Link (UK): HERE

  • Probably my favourite out of the lot! Totally lightweight + disappears into the skin. Unscented/unfragranced and cooling when applying. I like how it contains lots of soothing ingredients too 🙂

BE PLAIN – Clean Ocean Moisture Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ – 50ml

Stylevana Link: HERE

  • Probably the ”fattiest” SPF so I’d recommend more to dry skins. However I would still wear this as it’s so lightweight! It just has a bit more of a ‘melted butter’ texture. I don’t think this should dry out the skin.

Videos Mentioned:

Hyaluronic Acid Videos:

  • In this video, I discuss multimolecular HAs and why I like them!
  • I compare and contrast them, and give my recommendations.
  • In this video, I will be comparing + contrasting 2 different HA products. One is a simplistic HA serum and the other is ”complex”
  • I also discuss the differences between single and multi-molecular HA formulas!

My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
