Nature Republic Ice Sun Puff Review

When the Korean skincare brand Nature Republic reached out to me to do a review, I was very excited to try their Ice Sun Puff sunscreen. it may literally be the coolest sunscreen I have ever seen. To operate the sunscreen, you twist the cap to the ON position, shake it a few times, and press on the cap. The aerosol function cools down the liquid and dispenses it on to a cushion, which you then dab on to your face. This sunscreen truly lives up to the ice in its name!

Nature Republic Ice Sun Puff in California Aloe

What’s in this sunscreen?

This is a mineral-based sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as filters. It also includes aloe leaf juice for soothing and niacinamide for brightening.

This product also contains fragrance and denatured alcohol, which may be sensitizers to some.

Who is it for?

Who is it not for?

People who want a full-coverage sunscreen. Unfortunately, the design of this container is not ideal. There are only 3 holes in the aerosol, so only a little bit of liquid is dispensed with each press. Sometimes only the center of the cushion gets soaked. You have to shake multiple times to get enough for a touch-up.

Experience

I read a review that described this as the Bop It of skincare,” which is hilarious. I think this is the most fun and innovative sunscreen I have seen, with some missteps in execution.

First, what I like:

What I wish were improved:

Results

I have only tried this on normal days where I go to work from 9-5 or am walking to brunch on the weekend. I have not tested this at the beach, so I can’t say whether this truly protects me from the sun. Given the limited coverage, I would not trust this to be my go-to sunscreen for an outdoor activity. I would use this only for touch-ups.

Price

This is available in the USA at naturerepublicusa.com for $28. This is a 100mL bottle which comes with 2 cushions.

Verdict

I’m traveling to hot and humid southeast Asia later in the summer, and I am definitely bringing this product with me. I think the friends who are traveling with me would really benefit from this as well, so I am considering buying one for them too. However, I would file this product under skintertainment” - a fun, indulgence purchase that fits certain use cases, but not a skincare staple.

Please note that I received this product from Nature Republic for free in exchange for my review.
