Bioskin Coco Pink Blush Sunblock Cream ; Your Newest Favorite Local Sunscreen

February 13, 2020

I’m back once again with a sunscreen review and the limelight is on for another proudly local brand called Bioskin Coco PH. The brand was one of our generous event sponsors during the Skinfluencers PH meet-up last month and they offered us a vast selection of their products. Since I have a soft spot for sunscreens, I immediately chose their Pink Blush Sunblock Cream from the loot. The product name itself was catchy, and the packaging has strawberries on it, so those are the other factors for choosing this one.

So down to the review, like what SB19 says, Let’s Get It!!

BRAND HISTORY:

Bioskin Coco offers tropical-themed skin care and cosmetic products primarily using Fermented Virgin Coconut Oil as base and combines a mixture of various high potency fruity acids that are directly derived from nature. What’s more remarkable about the brand is that 1% of their sales go directly to the coconut farmers. You are therefore assured that their products are cruelty-free, vegan and environmental friendly.

Bioskin Coco Pink Blush Sunblock Cream. I love the matte tube and the cute packaging design. Very K-beauty-ish!

WHAT IT IS:
A Chemical sunblock cream that is vegan-friendly and allergen-free and can be used for both the face and the body.

VOLUME: 60 ML

PRICE: PHP 333.40 from https://bioskincoco.com/

CLAIMS:

  • Formulated with 95% all natural ingredients
  • Housed in a non-toxic packaging
  • Protects your skin while keeping it soft and supple
Expiry date and ingredients list at the back, no SPF amount indicated though.

NOTABLE INGREDIENTS:

Himalayan Pink Salt – this salt contains a lot of minerals and trace elements that claim to give you healthy skin and hair. It also claims to relax fatigued muscles, relieve joint pain and heals body scars.

Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut oil) – detoxifies the skin and gets rid of acne due to its antibacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that help soothe inflammation, fight acne infections and palliates red dry skin that caused acne.

Carica Papaya Oil – rich in antioxidants and helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, increases skin’s elasticity and repairs sun damage, dark spots, pigmentations and other blemishes.

Water, Polydence, *Cetyl Alcohol, Octylmethoxycinnamate, Sodium Chloride (Himalayan Pink Salt), Cocos Nucifera Oil, Carica Papaya Oil, Red. 40 (CI 16035), Fragrance, DMDM Hydantion.

*Cetyl Alcohol is a good type of alcohol that is safe and commonly used in skin care and cosmetic products.

There’s a Pinkish hue to this, just not visible in this shot. It has very thick consistency.

USAGE:
Apply enough Pink Blush Sunblock Cream 30 minutes before going out. Spread over skin that will be exposed to the sun. Reapply every 2 hours.

THOUGHTS:

So first of all, my phoney-self got the better of me and made me decide to choose this sunblock cream because of the packaging. As you can see, the packaging is super cute, it’s Black and Pink and it has strawberries too – my weakness, lol. At first glance, you would think it’s a K-beauty product, that is aesthetically-speaking. Anyway, so the sunblock is housed in a non-toxic squeezable tube with a sturdy cap. This is probably my favourite packaging for any skin care product since it’s more hygienic compared to other types of containers.

I like how convenient it is since you can easily dispense and control the amount of product you wish to use. Also, the consistency is rather thick and has a pale Pink hue. There’s this subtle fragrance as well that is more soothing than overpowering.

A pea-sized amount already goes a long way. I squeezed out much more than what I ought to but that’s okay, since the product can be used for the body as well. Surprisingly, the cream feels lightweight upon application despite its very thick texture. There’s also a bit of white cast to it, but I have no problems with that at all. However, the product seems to take quite some time before it sets to a semi-dewy finish.

What I noticed though is the absence of the amount of SPF. It wasn’t indicated in the packaging and there wasn’t a box that came with it too. I couldn’t find it as well from their SNS accounts so I’ve sought for assistance from their Instagram page and is currently waiting for a response. I will be editing this post once I’ve obtained that information.

***UPDATE*** So the Brand has already responded to me through their Instagram page and I was advised that this contains SPF 60.

I squeezed out a lot! Remember to use a pea-sized amount only ’cause a little goes a long way.

RATING: 7/10. The three points deduction would pertain to the absence of SPF amount and the bit of tackiness. ( ***UPDATE*** So the Brand has already responded to me through their Instagram page and I was advised that this contains SPF 60. ) While it does set, it takes a while, hours to be specific. I’ve been wearing the sunscreen for 2 hours as I’m typing this but my hairs are still sticking on the side of my face. Nonetheless, I still like the product, in terms of packaging, scent and ingredients. As long as the ingredients are vegan-friendly/safe for trying-to-conceive women or lactating moms, it’s automatically a must-buy for me.

REPURCHASE: Yes I will. But I do hope they’d be more accessible to the market. I’ve checked BeautyMNL and this sunblock cream was not included in the roster of products. They do have a website though, found above, where you can purchase from.

It looks matte here, but it’s more dewy-ish in reality. A little sticky and has a bit of white cast.

*PR/Gifted but all thoughts are my own*

Much Love,

      This seems nice! Hoping they’ll improve the formulation to address the issue on the difficulty to set and include the spf details in the packaging! Great review bb ❤️
