Guide to the New Japanese Sunscreen Releases of 2018

Guide to the New Japanese Sunscreen Releases of 2018

It’s back by popular demand — the Japanese Sunscreen Comparison Chart. This is a handy at-a-glance guide to the top 20 most popular new SPF50+ PA++++ Japanese sunscreen releases of 2018 (based on site’s view counts). It’s by no means a conclusive list — nearly 40 new sunscreen releases have been added to RatzillaCosme this year so far! You can find everything in the ‘Sun’ category.

For older releases, you can still refer to last year’s chart, which looked at the 20 most popular sunscreens on the site overall. Do note that a few products featured there have already been discontinued or replaced due to the relatively short product life cycle in Japan.

MILK TYPE

Ultra-fluid, milk-like texture — characterised by their long-wearing, stay-put formula. Remember to shake well before use.
