[Battle Review] Wardah Sun Care SPF 30 vs. Skin Aqua UV Mild Milk SPF 25 PA++

Hi beautiful girls, 

I think all of you already know how important the sunscreen is. Especially if we live in some tropical countries like I do, sunscreen is a must. Actually, my first bought of sunscreen product was just a year ago. Before, I just relied on some sunscreen on my moisturizer and powder. Poor me, nobody told me before to wear sunscreen while I was going out. A year ago, I found some dark spots on my face and I thought that it was because of sun's effect. Now, I put some sunscreens on my daily products to wear. 

Now this is time for battle between my two sunscreen products. *drum roll
Wardah Sun Care Sunscreen Gel SPF 30 vs. Skin Aqua UV Mild Milk SPF 25 PA++

 Skin Aqua and Wardah sunscreen products

Both of the products claim that they can be used daily. I will start the review from Wardah first. Wardah is a halal cosmetics. So, if you're moslem, you don't need to worry if you want to choose this Wardah product. Wardah claims that this product is suitable for every skin type. It has gel texture, so it's okay for oily skin also. This product also has Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5. It's said on the tube that this product has 2 benefits : 
1. to keep skin from UV A and UV B, prevent sun's bad effects on the skin. Plus, its Vitamin E is an antioxidant to protect the skin.
2. Aloe Vera extract and Pro Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) as moisturizer for skin. This product also easy to use, comfortable and non-sticky. 

 Wardah's ingredients

Then, let's talk about Skin Aqua. Skin Aqua product claims as a number one UV Skin Care in Japan based on UV Skin Care Sales in Value during March 2010 -February 2011 from SRI Report, Intage Inc, Japan. Mine is the Dry to Sensitive Skin variant but this product has many more variants. I chose this because sometimes I feel that my skin become sensitive and drier. This product also can be used as a make up base, but I've never done that.

To make it easier, I will write the functions in list : 
1. This product claims that it has SPF 25 as a protection from UV B and PA++ as protection from UV A. 
2. It also has Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen to moisturize skin.
3. Vitamin E is used as an antioxidant. 

Skin Aqua's ingredients

 Based on their functions and benefits, they have similar functions. Both of them have Vitamin E. Wardah has Aloe Vera and Panthenol for moisturizing effect while Skin Aqua has Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen. Wardah claims has UV A and UV B protection, but doesn't say how many PA it has. Or does it has another UV A protection substance that I don't know? Skin Aqua has UV A and UV B protection based on their SPF 25 and PA++. 

 Skin Aqua package and its box

Both of the product come in boxes. Unluckily, Wardah's box is already lost because I bought it several months ago. Wardah box is green (green color like other Wardah products) while Skin Aqua has blue color. Wardah box is made from paper and Skin Aqua is made from thick plastic. I like Wardah box because it's more eco friendly. Actually, both of them are okay without boxes. They will safe even without boxes because their packaging are well. Many other products come only in tube and bottle without boxes. Without boxes are more eco friendly and it will safe the environment. We don't really need the boxes, right? 

Their packaging

Wardah sunscreen come in plastic tube and Skin Aqua come in, how to say it, bottle? Yeah, let say bottle with pointed hole. I like the Skin Aqua packaging more because this is unique. I don't see any product which has similar bottle. The pointed hole also prevent too much product come out. 

 Their consistency before and after application

Wardah's product is gel while Skin Aqua's milk. Actually, I do have great hope that Wardah is suitable for oily skin because its consistency is gel but after applying, it's greasy and oily. Although my skin type is dry skin, I feel uncomfortable using Wardah because I feel that my face too oily. I don't have similar problem with Skin Aqua. Both have whitecast, but I think it's okay since they are sunscreen. 

Result : 
As I wrote above, Wardah product is greasy on my face. Sometimes it's difficult to put on some compact powder after applying Wardah.  I'm fine using Skin Aqua since it's water based product. For the sunscreen benefits, I think both work great. 

Conclusion : 
If I have to chose one between the two, I will chose Skin Aqua product. Why? 
1. It has PA++. Although Wardah also said that their product also has UV A protection, but they don't say how much PA they have or maybe they have another UV  A protection substance. I think it's important for Wardah to make this information about it's clear. 
2. Skin Aqua doesn't make me feel greasy. I think Wardah should recreate their product or maybe to make this product clears for what skin type. 

Price : 
Wardah : around IDR 30,000 for 40 ml (USD 2.5)
Skin Aqua : around IDR 40,000 for 80 g (USD 3,3)
