I’ve mentioned before that I absolutely hate the feel of most sunblocks. Since they’re such an essential part of our daily skincare, it’s usually a very uncomfortable exercise in necessity for me. If you’re in the same boat regarding being extremely picky in the feel of your sunscreens, you will love this stuff. Well, even if you’re not, you still might love it. It’s pretty damn awesome.

The Missha brand

Missha is one of the big names in the South Korean beauty industry. I feel that this brand is largely undervalued and does not receive enough recognition for its product lines, catering to teens with college budgets to luxury anti-aging alternatives at affordable prices.
Missha appears to be involved in sustainability efforts, such as a recycling program for environmental protection and “assist neglected and estranged neighbors.”

Key Ingredients explained

When you plug the ingredients into the INCIDecoder website, we see that Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk is a chemical sunscreen.
The tradeoff for weightlessness is that this has a high alcohol content, which can irritate some people. I have no problems with alcohol and irritation, but your mileage may vary.

Eucalyptus: absorbs excess oil.

Oriental tea compound: Rich in flavonoids and vitamin E, which restore elasticity and youthfulness to the skin, provide moisture, are antibacterial, detoxify, antioxidant, and protect the skin against harmful environmental effects.

Snow White Petal: This is an extremely powerful antioxidant that helps skin smooth, firm, elastic, and youthful, resists the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays, and protects the skin (thanks to containing flavonoids and antioxidants).

Purslane flower extract: The purslane extract has many uses, but it is notable for its outstanding moisturizing ability thanks to the “succulent” nature of the plant and its high vitamin A content. This substance maintains essential moisture for the skin and soothes it.

Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk does not contain niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, or parabens.

My first impression about the packaging is that the Missha All Around Safe Block Sun Milk sunscreen has a lovely “chubby” design. Small sturdy plastic bottle, very firm in hand. The bottle cap is a unique color for each line. Basic information about the product is fully printed on the box for your convenience.


The scent is the normal powdery sunblock smell but a very mild incarnation. It’s not noticeable. The smell is not overpowering or overwhelming and is supposed to be okay for sensitive skin.

As the name would suggest, it’s a runny formula. Once shaken up, it has the consistency of milk. I was a little anxious when I saw how oily the consistency out of the bottle seemed, but applying it felt like a dream come true. I love this product because it blends away into the feeling of absolute nothing. It’s weightless, almost more like a serum than a moisturizer which most sunblocks tend to present as.

Because of its oil form and lightweight, I could easily apply multiple layers of this sunscreen without feeling greasy/sticky, which is great because I’m often out and about during the day. This reapplies very well, in my experience.

My experience with Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk

I was not paid for this review or received it as a gift. I’ve been using it for nearly one month, and the effects on my skin are obvious. For reference, I have a combo of sensitive skin.

Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk might be my favorite sun protection right now. It comes in a bottle with a little bead inside to help stir the contents (much like a nail polish bottle). Make sure you remember to shake it thoroughly before use. Otherwise, you’ll get a weird oily-looking separation of the product. I found that out the hard way one groggy morning when I forgot to shake the bottle and looked like someone coated my face in vinaigrette.

Now, regarding the waterproof claims, I cannot tell accurately. I have a pool in my building, but I don’t use it or do any heavy outdoor activities as it’s currently the dead of winter. So I must rate this solely on its high 50 SPF, full UVA/UVB protection, and magic lightness.

How to apply Missha All Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk?

  1. Apply in the AM, at the end of your skincare routine;
  2. Remember to shake it thoroughly;
  3. Apply;
  4. Reapply throughout the day as needed, especially during prolonged sun exposure.

Is Missha cruelty-free?

Unfortunately, no, Missha is NOT cruelty-free. Therefore Missha waterproof sun milk is not vegan either.

Are Missha sunscreens good?

Yes, they are pretty awesome. I consider Missha to be the master of cosmetic sunscreens.

Does Missha’s sunscreen leave a white cast?

There is no white cast left on your face, another thing typical of most sunblocks that stuff manages to avoid.

Because of the high alcohol content, I can’t rate this a 5 for everyone (it’s a 5 for me, though!), but this is a solid 4 out of 5.

As always, you do you, be kind to your skin and yourself! Remember that every person’s skin and skin type is different, so what might work for me might not work for you, and vice versa. So before adding a new product to your skincare routine, it pays to do a little research first.

Pay special attention to ingredients that you might react to. Doing a patch test is always a good idea. Unsure? Best to consult your dermatologist.

Happy skin experimenting, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
