Review: Sunkiller Super Lasting Base

Summer is long over and blogging about a sunscreen seems untimely but since protecting the skin against the harmful rays of the sun should be done on a daily basis regardless of  the season, I think this post is still ok. :D Today, I am talking about the last sunscreen I have tried, the Sunkiller Super Lasting Base. This product is from a Japanese company called Isehan. And since Japan is known for its great sun protection products, does this one live up to people’s, or at least to mine’s, expectations? Find out...

Product Description

A lightweight sun lotion combines the coverage of a BB cream with the healthy color of a tinted moisturizer, to conceal pores, blemishes and other skin imperfections, while giving complexion a radiant glow. Long-wearing waterproof and sweat proof formula keeps skin looking fresh and radiant all day and night long.


Packaging and Appeal. Sunkiller Super Lasting Base comes in a cute pink tube that is so slim it will easily fit your purse. The nozzle or the tip of the tube is also a bit small thus making it easy to control the product that comes out of the tube.

The product itself is skin tone in color with a consistency that is a bit thicker than liquid foundation and less thicker than cream foundation. The product is easy to apply as it glides easily on the skin. It is fast-drying too!

Effectiveness. I apply this sunscreen every morning after putting on my moisturizer. It works great in controlling oil, but unfortunately, up to the point of making some parts of  my skin look dull and dry. I have been trying to achieve that healthy dewy skin and this sunscreen is not giving me the result that I want. Maybe I apply too much? But then if I apply very little, I’m afraid it wouldn’t be enough to protect me against the harmful rays of the sun.

As a makeup base, so far its good. With the use of this product, my makeup looks smoother and lasts longer than without a base. But if you are thinking of using this alone, expect that the coverage will be sheer. It will just mattify the skin, not even out skin color or conceal dark spots. You have to apply foundation and concealer after this for better coverage.

With regards to sun protection, it hasn’t failed me so far. I used this during an outing and it did its job as expected.

Scent. This sunscreen doesn’t have noticeable scent.

Ingredients. Water, cyclopentasiloxane, methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, zinc oxide, DPG, diphenylsiloxy phenyl trimethicone, PEG-9 dimethicone, octinoxate, trimethylsiloxysilicate, diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate, dimethicone, cellulose, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, sodium hyaluronate, soluble collagen, sodium citrate, disteardimonium hectorite, hydrogen dimethicone, avobenzone, aluminium hydroxide, stearic acid, methyl parahydroxybenzoate, EDTA-2Na, BHT, polyquaternium-51, titanium(IV) dioxide, iron oxides

Price. This 30-gram tube costs Php 445 and I would probably last me four to five months when used daily.

Will I purchase again?

Probably not for now. Biore products are now available in Watsons near my office so I am buying them next.


I think this product is great for those with very oily skin who needs sunscreen with high UV filters. If you have combination skin, this can emphasize the dry areas of your face but then, the use of a good moisturizer can help you address the problem.
