Mentholatum Skin Aqua Super Moisture Gel SPF50+ PA++++

Just finished this 110g bottle of Mentholatum Skin Aqua Super Moisture Gel SPF50+ PA++++ so here's a quick review. This is a stronger version of the UV Moisture Gel that's still available in SPF35 PA+++ and SPF30 PA+++.

This is a competing product with Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel Super SPF50 PA+++. It's the same easy-on easy-off formula that's perfect for everyday errands about town but is definitely not meant for sports or the beach. It's also the same weightless, watery gel texture that's a joy to apply. It has better sun protection than Nivea, being SPF50+ and PA++++, but this comes at the cost of slight stickiness :( If it were winter right now, or if I were in a drier climate, I wouldn't mind it a bit. But right now, I hate the stickiness on my neck and arms after applying this, so for the sake of surviving a Japanese summer I'll be sticking with Nivea, with the help of sunscreen powders of course because Nivea is slightly weaker.

Freebie sheet mask GWP.

Hrm, too bad! It sounds like it'd be perfect in super dry California :P
I feel like Nivea should be reapplied often especially when sweating - it's just so light!

Hi kuri,

Exactly! I'll probably stock up on this before I go home but for now I really rely on on Nivea as to not turn into a sticky mess :(
