Haruharu Wonder Sunscreen Review

I must admit I’m new to the world of Haruharu Wonder but I’ve heard great things. So I’m really excited to try things out and share my findings with you.

First up is their Black Rice Moisture Airyfit Sunscreen. Let’s get to it.

Ingredients and skin benefits

I’m a big fan of hardworking sunscreens, or those that not only protect our skin from the sun but nourish our skin as well.

And Haruharu Wonder’s sunscreen is enriched with the following to do just that:

Other things to know

Haruharu Wonder sunscreen tube.
  • Packaging. This sunscreen comes in a 50-ml plastic tube with a cap. It has an applicator that you press to get the product out, compared to other sunscreens where you need to press the whole tube.
  • Smell. It’s unscented and free of artificial fragrance. 
  • Texture and Consistency. It’s also wonderfully lightweight and creamy. It feels more like a summer moisturizer than a heavy sunscreen.
  • Application. It spreads well, absorbs quickly, and leaves no sticky feeling or greasy residue. It goes well under makeup, too.
  • Skin Type. Haruharu Wonder recommends this product for all skin types, including sensitive skin (it’s gone through a hypoallergenic test). I think those with oily skin will adore this product as well, because of its light and velvety finish.
  • Certified. It is SPF-approved by labs in Europe and South Korea.
  • Reef Safe. And it doesn’t contain ingredients considered harmful to marine ecosystems and coral reefs.
  • Expiration. It’s best to use this product within 12 months of opening.

How to use

I use this every morning — whether I’m going out or staying home, whether it’s a sunny or cloudy day — as the last step in my morning routine.

I dot it around my face and neck then spread evenly with my fingers.

What I like about this product

Woman thinking seriously.
  • No white cast. I always use chemical sunscreen because mineral sunscreens tend to leave a white cast on my skin. The same is true here. I love how this leaves zero white cast. I have brown/tan skin and you’ll never know I have this on.
  • Lightweight. It’s also ultra lightweight; almost like it’s not there. It’s never sticky and doesn’t get greasy even on a hot summer day.
  • Creamy. I love how smooth and creamy this is and it’s such a joy to use. It applies smoothly and sinks into the skin quickly.
  • Gentle. This product is gentle on my skin — no breakouts or irritation because of it. It also plays well with the other products in my morning routine.

What I don’t like about it

  • Applicator. I’m not a big fan of this kind of applicator in general. I always make a mess of things and the product always ends up accumulating on the cap. 
  • Finish. This sunscreen leaves a velvety finish. I prefer a dewy look but this is really a matter of personal preference.

Do I recommend this product?

Woman hugging herself.

On a rating scale of 1 to 5 — 5 being awesome — this product is definitely a 5 for me.

I have my go-to sunscreen but Haruharu Wonder’s sunscreen is definitely giving it serious competition. 

I love myself a dewy finish but it’s pretty hard to beat a sunscreen that’s lightweight, provides SPF50+ PA++++ protection, nourishes the skin, is made with natural ingredients, gentle, and more.

You will especially love this if you live in a warm climate or have oily or sensitive skin.

As always, 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 trying a new product, it pays to do a little bit of research first. Pay special attention to ingredients that you might have a reaction to.

And doing a patch-test is always a good idea. Unsure? Best to consult your dermatologist.

Happy skin experimenting!
