K Beauty Sunscreen Review. Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotic

June 28, 2022
K Beauty Sunscreen for sensitive skin

Is this the best K Beauty Sunscreen for sensitive skin?

A SPF that doesn’t clog pores, cause irritation, has no white cast and applies like a dream? Does such an spf exist? 

If all the rave reviews of Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotic are true, it seems it does.

Quickly becoming a cult favourite, it seems everybody has been raving about this spf this summer. And I can see why, it’s the best sunscreen for sensitive skin I’ve tried. It’s a  standard chemical sunscreen in a nice way just with a load of soothing ingredients making this super comfortable on the skin even if you have a damaged skin barrier. It’s been compared to the Round Lab – Birch Juice Moisturizing Sun Cream but Beauty of Joseon seems to be getting even more love.

Beauty of Joseon 

Is a skincare brand made with Hanbang (Traditional herbal medicine) ingredients handed down from the Joseon Dynasty and orginally inspired by a 19th century encyclopedia describing the skin care secrets of upper class Korean women. Ingredients include; Rice Bran Water, Ginsengroot water, Green Plum Water, Propolis, Green Tea Leaf Water, and Prunus Mume Flower Water.


First lets breakdown what makes it soo good.

Beauty of Joseon Sunscreen ingredients

Rice extract 30% + Grain fermented extracts

The key skincare ingredient in here is rice which is a pretty popular ingredient in Koreans skincare. It has 30 % rice extract and a 1000 ppm rice germ extract, as well as three probiotic rice ferments. Rice  great for hydration and for sensitive skin as it’s rich in amino acids and minerals. While the probiotic ferments help to strengthen your skin.

But it’s not just rice. We have a whole lot of skin loving ingredients like niacinamide and  green tea (another favourite K Beauty ingredient) plus  coconut fruit extracts for extra hydration, ginseng root extract, which is great antioxidant.

UV Filters

Beauty Of Joseon Sunscreen is not a mineral sunscreen. It is a chemical sunscreen with new advanced UV filters  – Uvinul A Plus, Uvinul T 150, Tinosorb M, and Uvasorb HEB. Which are less sensitizing and more photo stable.
