Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence

Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence Review

If I have one thing that never leaves inside my bag, that is my sunscreen lotion.

With this unpredictable weather, either there’s sunshine or none – still I can’t avoid the sun damage.
So it is my personal agenda to hunt for the best sunscreen lotion that will protect my face and my body.

One of my recent favorite is the Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence from a Korean skincare company, Vella Cosmetics. I’ve got this few months ago (thanks to someone who sent me this!) and been using this for two months now and guess what?

I fucking loving it!

Here’s why!

Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence Review

Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence as the name suggest have a hydro or watery formula, quite similar to your favorite Korean serum formula. It’s water-based which is easily to spread-out to my skin when applied.

I only need four tiny drops to cover my entire face.

This also contains a high SPF 50+ / PA+++ which is ideal for my skin especially with this Philippine’s humid weather.

Though it is packaged only in 30ml size, I find it just fine and very handy.

What about the scent?

Oh it smells mildly and not irritating which is perfection. It has a powdery scent which is very appealing.

The consistency is very refining, no textured whatsoever and very easy to spread and absorbed to my skin. If only there’s a big bottle of something similar from Vella that is for my body, I would definitely be digging it. It is very light, much lighter than other sunscreen I’ve tried previously, and it feels like I’ve never wear a thing!

Another thing I like about it is how it was packaged. You see that bottle-cap? It was designed as anti-spill to tightly capped the container.

Also the pointy, small opening of the container is very cool!

It prevents to not spill the content when uncapped. Isn’t sounds awesome?! NO more spilling!

This sunscreen essence is very beauty-friendly!

Another good news for ladies who are into whitening skincare – this Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence also helps you to lighten your skin! During the course of using it, I’ve noticed that it helps to lighten my pimple marks as well. I find it very satisfying. It is rare to find a sunscreen lotion that also helps to lighten pimple marks, and even out your skin tone.

It is also anti-ageing sunscreen essence, which is a huge plus for me!

Okay, maybe I may sounds overly dramatic, however it is better that you tried it as well.

Then thank me later, ladies :D

And since the box and labels are written in Hangul, I’ve checked my reliable source of skincare, ALTHEA KOREA to dig what’s in its label.

And there I found out that my favorite Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence have this seven (7) free harsh ingredients (meaning not included). This sunscreen essence is free from paraben, phenoxyethanol, triethanolamine, mineral oil, artificial favouring agents, artificial colours, and free from benzophenone.

Plus this sunscreen essence contains 61% of Hawaii Kona deep ocean water which gives more hydration that lasts 72-hours in your skin, which makes skin have that dewy look.

It also contains additional ingredients:

Isn’t that awesome?!

How to apply:
Apply few drops onto your face enough to cover it entirely, then pat lightly. I used four drops that are enough to cover my face and three drops for my neck. I apply it religiously at least 3-times daily, even I’m indoors because artificial lights, and yes including that radiation from your computer and smartphones can also triggers to damage our skin.

I also apply it few drop to my hand to prevent it from wrinkles and ageing.


Price and Availability:
I’ve checked Althea Korea and it is sold at Php660.00 (with regular price at Php1,320.00)


Another tip:
See that cap? You can also use it as emergency mirror! It isn’t so clear but vivid enough to see yourself when you apply your sunscreen!

OMG that’s awesome!

Because this sunscreen is my holy grail, IMHO.

Verdict:
This Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence is something that will definitely stays in my vanity table and in my bag! When I got it months ago, I was worried that I would be stressed-out searching for it when I finally emptied it. But not worried anymore because finally, Althea Korea has it!

And I am relieved! Definitely worthy of your time and money :D


xoxo, Blair
