Hey Ratzilla, would you recommend this for oily skin or for use in very humid weather?

Hi Ratzilla, when reading your blog, I just realized I bought the Vietnamese version instead of the Japanese one. So I did some research and found a site ” My Asian Skincare” where the blogger says that both formulations are identical and she shows a picture of both of them, in Japanese of course… I am lost… Thank you in advance for your answer.

You are right. There are so many versions of Sunplay that one can get confused. Actually, I am talking about this one: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-SRjGuufGBF4/VexO1H7CWCI/AAAAAAAALhs/tOcqzdHhTpA/s1600/%2Bsunplay-superblock2x500.png

Do you think the quality is the same as the Japanese version?

Hi again,

Another question-does this say if it’s non-comedogenic? Thanks 🙂

Has this sunscreen been discontinued? The Master of Life seller on Rakuten says it’s sold out, and I’m seeing it has been sold-out in a lot of different places too. This was my HG, I hope it wasn’t discontinued 🙁

Hi,

This may be a really silly question, but I have this sunscreen and it is made in Vietnam and has a different bottle design. Is this exactly the same as the one made in Japan, or does it vary in any way eg. ingredients etc? Thanks 🙂

Thank you so much! Can I just ask, are the active sunscreen ingredients still the same in both?

Hi, do you know what % of zinc oxide sunplay superblock contains? Would greatly appreciate it… the percentages seem very hard to find

Thanks so much for the speedy and useful response. Do you know if there is any way to roughly estimate the PPD? I’m trying to compare my Elta MD sunscreen which has 9% zinc oxide and 7.5% octinoxate to the Sunplay Superblock in terms of protectiveness. I wonder how likely it is that Superblock could have a PPD far above 16.

The price is a little steep for me 🙁 Allie costs US$30 on Amazon for 60ml and Sekkisei costs US$70 for 60g. Any other cheaper versions? (Biore, etc). I wouldn’t mind if it’s a little greasy or has white cast since I am using it for heavy duty outdoor activities (beach, camping) Thank you so much.

How about the Biore UV AQUA Rich Watery Essence? Is it suitable for 15 minutes exposure to the sun? What sunscreen do you recommend?

Would it be okay to use if I don’t sweat easily? Or should I use a “stronger” one like Biore UV Perfect Milk? How do you know if the sunscreen is for outdoors – what combination of formula should I take into consideration aside from the use of physical filters? Thank you

Hi there, Thanks so much for all your reviews/descriptions/ingredient dissection – your site is my go-to site when making online purchases from Japan! I just wanted your opinion regarding Zinc % in sunscreens. I like to scour the ingredients list too, but find that Japanese sunscreens don’t disclose the percentage of their active ingredients. Would you recommend using something like this over a chemical filter sunscreen for maximum protection for a holiday in the tropics?: http://skinhealth.com.au/blog/product/classic/ Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 200mg/g, Octocrylene 80mg/g, Bemotrizinol 20mg/g, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate 20mg/g, Octyl Methoxycinnamate 50mg/g. (it states 200mg/g of Zinc – I… Read more »

Thanks so much for your reply!

Yes, it’s quite frustrating when no UVA protection is indicated hence why I thought that a higher percentage of Zinc would equal a higher PPD/PA protection. Would you say that if it had a higher percentage of Zinc than this Sunkiller one though, that it may offer more thorough protection if regularly reapplied?

Also, got the Sunkiller Moisture Strong Plus thanks to your 2015 List and find that it works great under the eye area, and sides of nose/mouth where skin can get taut and dry 😀

Hey. Is there a very strong white cast with this one? I have dark skin but it’s actually quite photosensitive. I use a medium coverage foundation on the regular and I was wondering if it would be enough to hide that? Thks!!

I have darker skin (Brown skinned – african) and I’m photosensitive too…i’ve noticed taking cod liver oil helps with photosensitivity and there are some scientific studies to back it up…same with astaxanthin supplement. I’m just sharing this because I found sunscreen can only do so much.

Would this be too heavy-duty for everyday use? I have an especially hard time looking for a winter sunscreen.

Could you possibly recommend me a top performing sunscreen suitable for combination, sensitive skin that doesn’t contain alcohol? i was considering this sunscreen but it appears it may be too heavy for me :/

Thanks. I’m actually trying to avoid sunscreens with denatured alcohol because studies are inconclusive as to whether or not it is quite harmful.

Any idea as to how does this one compare with the Rohto Hada-Labo UV Creamy Gel SPF 50/PA ++++ one?

Hi! I’m currently in the market for a new sunscreen for the upcoming summer months. This one looks promising but I’ve noticed that it doesn’t have alcohol listed on the ingredient list and I prefer alcohol-based sunscreens. Doesn’t most sebum-resistant, as indicated in the description, Japanese sunscreens contained alcohol?
