I bought the Jumiso Waterfull Hyaluronic Sunscreen when planning for my vacation. Since I am using retinoids, I buy (and like to test) a lot of sunscreens. This was a good choice, although summer vacation in Coachella Valley wasn’t our best decision thus far. We hadn’t even thought of Palm Springs existing in a desert until well after locking in our Airbnb, so we were committed. But how bad could it be? Living in Chicago, we’re used to cooler summers, and while locals swear it’s humid here, this area of Illinois is far drier than the swampy states I’ve lived in.
Imagine entering an outdoor oven with everything immediately drying out: your eyes, skin, and sinuses. You start feeling cold-like symptoms from the level of dryness you’re experiencing. Your clothing feels like it’s melting into you. Sweating is just part of existence—hot asf.
Weather aside, Joshua Tree is mesmerizingly beautiful, and Palm Springs’s mid-century modern vibes are carefree. No wonder gay men go there to sunbathe and die! If I had to choose a winter escape, this would be it.

Combining those two, Jumiso started its brand with a mission to make people smile, therefore their brand logo.

Sunscreen filter Moisturizing/Humectant Active
Titanium dioxide is a popular physical sunscreen filter that blocks UVA and UVB rays and blue light, which can cause premature aging and skin damage. It is a naturally occurring white mineral, chemically inactive and safe for the skin.
However, titanium dioxide does not block long UVA1 rays, which can penetrate deeper into the skin and cause more harm. Therefore, it is recommended to use sunscreen products that combine titanium dioxide with other UV filters, such as zinc oxide or avobenzone, to achieve broad-spectrum protection.
Titanium dioxide is also an opacifier, which means it can make cosmetics thicker and more opaque. This can sometimes leave a white cast on the skin, especially if the titanium dioxide particles are large. To avoid this, some sunscreen products use titanium dioxide in nanoparticle form, which is smaller and more transparent. However, there is some debate about nanoparticles’ safety and environmental impact, so further research is needed to determine their effects.
Uvinul A Plus
Uvinul A Plus (Diethylamino Hydroxybenxoyl Hexyl Benzoate) is a new-generation chemical sunscreen. It is designed for high UVA protection (whole range) and photostability. Uvinul A Plus is not FDA-approved.
Tinosorb S (Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine) is a broad spectrum photo stable chemical filter not yet FDA approved.
Uvinul T 150
Uvinul T 150 (Ethylhexyl Triazone) is a new-generation chemical sunscreen with today’s highest photo-stable absorption of all available UVB filters. It is oil-soluble, odorless, colorless, and works well in fragrance-free formulas. It is approved worldwide but not yet FDA-approved.
Parsol SLX (Polysilicone-15) is a silicone-based chemical sunscreen that protects from UVB rays. Silicone is not my favorite ingredient. It can trigger acne and cause “pilling” under makeup. It can have benefits for dry skin since it helps prevent water loss. Although it is not yet FDA-approved, it has been approved in many European and Asian countries.
Terephthalylidene Dicamphor Sulfonic Acid (Mexoryl SX) is water soluble and protects and has UVA protection.
Vitamin B3, also known as nicotinamide, is a favorite ingredient amongst skincare enthusiasts, and for a good reason.
- It acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing the damaging free radicals that cause aging;
- It improves skin hydration and elasticity;
- It fades hyperpigmentation, redness, and sallowness;
- It reduces fine lines and wrinkles;
- Controls sebum production;
- Improves skin texture;
- Reduces acne;
- Regular use strengthens the skin barrier by increasing the production of ceramides and lipids and decreasing transepidermal water loss, making it an ideal moisturizer addition.
Bonus points for including it in this sunscreen!
Niacinamide can quickly become a skincare must for those suffering from skin dryness and dehydration, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, or anyone looking to avoid hydroquinone. Read the Complete Guide on Niacinamide.
Glycerin is a very effective humectant, used in many moisturizers to increase skin hydration. It occurs naturally in your skin as part of its home-grown moisturizing system, the natural moisturizing factor (NMF).
Like other humectants, it works by sitting in the top layers of your skin and attracting water from the air and the deeper layers, leaving your skin surface plump and hydrated, even when the weather is arid. Glycerin also keeps the skin’s lipids flexible, which means your skin is more supple and able to function appropriately without cracking.
This sunscreen contains three types of hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, and Sodium Hyaluronate.
Hyaluronic acid, a skincare buzzword back in the day, was spotlighted for its incredibly hydrating and moisturizing properties. It’s a naturally occurring component of the skin that plays many vital roles in skin health and wellness, including skin hydration.
But it may come as a surprise to learn that, used on its own, it is not an incredibly beneficial ingredient in skincare. Could Hyaluronic Acid be dehydrating?
Dr. Shereene Idriss talks about this popular skincare ingredient and how to include it in your routine so hear her out.
Is it vegan? Yes, it is vegan-certified.
Is it reef safe? Yes, it has the label “protect reef first.”
It comes in a 1.69 fl. oz / 50ml pretty tube. It is compact, slim, and easy to carry around.
I detect no smell at all.
Squeezing the tube gently, a white, watery cream oozes out onto the back of my hand. If I had to describe it, the sunscreen is light-medium texture-wise and is not a pain to spread onto the face (or hand).
My experience with Jumiso Waterfull Hyaluronic Sunscreen
I was not paid for this review or received it as a gift. I’ve used it for nearly two months and am ready to share my thoughts.
My skin is dry right now because I have just started using tretinoin. With winter approaching, my skin is getting drier and drier. My skin is also very sensitive to sunlight because of the early retinization stage.
I must admit that I was impressed with this sunscreen for its hydrating and moisturizing properties. It indeed does its job well. My skin feels smooth and hydrated.
Protection-wise, it has successfully kept me from tanning or burning while on vacation. I must admit I was stressing out, regretting I didn’t bring a hat, and reapplying hourly.
Unfortunately, as shown in the video above, the sunscreen has quite a white cast. It is not visible on my face because I am very pale, so I will continue using it. If I’m going out, I need to apply makeup so I don’t look sick. The good news is it wears very well under makeup.
For me, one of the reasons I appreciate it is because it doesn’t sting my eyes.
How to Use Jumiso Waterfull Hyaluronic Sunscreen?
- At the end of the skincare routine, take an adequate amount (recommended ¼ tsp, but this is arguable) and spread it all over the face.
- Tap gently for absorption.
- Also, apply it to body parts exposed to the sun, such as the neck, arms, and legs.
- Reapply if exposed to the sun for long hours.
- provides good protection
- does not sting my eyes
- no scent
- no greasiness
- slight white cast
I have to say I’m not regretting buying it.
Although the Jumiso sunscreen did well, I will not repurchase it because I am still searching for my HG sunscreen.
