Skinfood Broccoli Sunscreen Cream SPF 42 PA+++

50mL, 8000 won, $155 HKD, 500 NT
Contains broccoli extracts, vitamins, aloe, camomile.
It is water-resistant, suitable for people who does water sports.
Camomile has calming effects, so it's also suitable for people with sensitive skin.
SPF 42 PA+++ can protect your skin against strong UVA and UVB

Broccoli extract gets absorbed into the skin and creates enzymes which protect the skin from UV rays. It can reduce the chance of being sunburned and getting red spots. The chemical substance responsible for this protection prevents formation of tumours. Broccoli extract (acting as a protective shield) can also stay in your skin longer then regular sunscreen. It doesn't wash away easily, after using it for a few days, although the broccoli extract is not physically on the skin any more, it can last for as long as 3 days!! 

That doesn't mean you can apply sunscreen once every few days, it just means your skin has a basic protection from the sun. 

It doesn't smell like broccoli, but smells like lettuce....
texture is between sun milk and sun cream... not as watery as sun milk and not as creamy as sun cream.... 
Suitable for drier makes my face kind of oily (I have combination oily skin).... 
buy it only if either you live in a cold country or if you have dry skin

Apply it 15-20 mins before you go out, avoid eye areas. You can use it on your face, neck, arms, legs and feet. But since it's only 50 mL, I would use a body sunscreen for my arms, legs and feet....
