Review: Missha All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF30 PA++

Hi all!

Here’s another review. This time, it will be about the:

Missha All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel SPF30 PA++ in 50ml Tube

The Missha All-Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel in SPF30 PA++ offers extra sun protection to suit even people with sensitive skin. It contains patent ingredients from seven kinds of oriental tea extract.

In addition, the Missha All-Around Safe Block Aqua Sun Gel promises to lock in moisture to the skin so as to keep it moisturized without the shine and the stickiness. This gel can be applied to the face and other parts of the body. 



Nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to the packaging, but I like it. It’s cute, presentable, and pretty handy, too. It originally came in with a matching box, but sad to say, I lost it.

Everything would have been perfect – if Missha added some English descriptions on the tube. Sadly, I couldn’t find any. Also, if you’re looking for the expiry date, you wouldn’t find it on the tube as well. Instead, you’ll find both the batch code and manufacturing date embedded at the topmost part of the tube. Not bad.

Although it looks pretty standard, there’s one thing that really stands out; notice that the opening of the tube is somewhat pointed, similar to that of a pen. Probably, the manufacturers designed this from keeping us users from using too much product. I like it because it does its job well, and it prevents extra lotion from coagulating at the opening of the tube.  Also, it seals well. All in all, great job, Missha!


It’s not clear gel, like how I expected it would be, but rather, its composition is similar to that of a lotion. It is white and all, but it is not runny. I was relieved when I found out that it’s not sticky, too, as it doesn’t take much to blend well on the skin.

Its scent is somewhat powdery, but very subtle. I’m guessing that you won’t notice the scent when you apply it on your skin. Since the scent is too subtle, it doesn’t linger for too long, but the moisturizing effect stays on for hours! Got to love that! 

Cost Efficiency

Missha is a rather expensive cosmetic brand for us Filipinos. This sun gel, for instance, costs around 13 USD, which converts to around Php 560.00. It’s expensive, but if you’re really up for a sun gel that is non-sticky, non-greasy, and light on the skin, this could be the product you’re looking for. Of course, this comes with a price.

Maybe not. I think it's good, but it's missing the 'wow' factor that would make me want to buy another one.
