Spray-type sunscreens have been getting very popular in Asia this year. I don't know if it's just because people are lazy or don't have much time to apply a sunscreen lotion. Even if that is not the case, they are a good way to touch up sun protection after sweating/swimming.
Re:cipe Crystal Sun Spray SPF50 PA+++ is an affordable Korean sunscreen spray. This is already my second bottle. It runs out quickly if you use it daily. The fragrance is very strong, too strong. A while ago I sprayed my neck and chest with it before going out and the back of my neck was itchy the whole day.
That is why I decided to try a Japanese fragrance-free option: Ajuste Airytouch UV Spray SPF50 PA++++. I just love how so many Japanese cosmetics are fragrance- and color-free (why are so many Korean products heavily fragranced?????) which makes it ideal for sensitive skin like mine. This spray feels more cool and dry.
I prefer the matte finish of the Ajuste UV spray. Overall, it is just so much better. It dries immediately, no smell and it has a higher UVA-protection of PA++++. I paid more for it tough, but the bottle is also bigger: 200g while the other one has 150ml.
It's great to have a fragrance-free sun spray, because I can smell the Re:cipe sun spray the whole day. It's like wearing perfume. Kind of annoying. I feel like I am spraying deodorant on my body.
The Ajuste spray comes in 3 different versions. I bought the "fragrance-free" one, but there are two others: "gentle fragrance" and "anti-mosquito". I wish they came in smaller bottles, too, because it would be easier to carry around and travel with.
