Product packaging:
Dr. G green mild up sun+ comes in a chubby plastic tube.  I like that the front has an “opened date” where you can write when you first opened the tube to remind yourself how long you have until the 1-year expiration mark.

This also might be the first time I’ve seen braille on any K-beauty product!  I’m impressed :O.  I personally don’t know how to read braille, so please tell me what this says if you do know how to read it!

To dispense, it is just the usual twist-off cap and dispensing through squeezing the tube.

Texture/ Finish + white cast:
Despite being a fully physical sunscreen, this actually has a lightweight texture that melts into the skin easily.  It does take a little bit longer than a chemical sunscreen to massage into the skin, however, it definitely isn’t as bad as some other ones I’ve tried.

At first, it massages into the skin with a nice hydrating finish.  But after a minute when it is fully settled into the skin, it has a velvet finish and isn’t hydrating enough for my dry skin.  It doesn’t dry my skin out as bad as the Dr. Ceuracle pro balance biotics clear up sun, however, it isn’t as hydrating as my now new favorite IOPE sun protector XP.

White cast wise also isn’t as bad as I expected it to be.  It takes a bit of time to blend it into the skin and it looks like there would be a more severe white cast, however, it blends out almost like a chemical sunscreen!

There’s a slight sunscreen scent to it, but it isn’t strong.  Smell-o-scale: 2/10 in terms of how strong the scent is and it fades right away.

-minimal white cast
-doesn’t irritate my skin throughout the day
-good medium between hydrating and matte

No complaints actually!

If my skin ever changes from dry to normal skin type, I would consider repurchasing.

Overall thoughts:
I’m actually way more impressed with this sunscreen than I thought I would be.  I had the impression this sunscreen would be more drying than it would be, however, it isn’t bad.  If I moisturized really well before using this sunscreen, I could definitely work with it.  But with more hydrating options like Round labs, IOPE and my beloved Thank you farmer sunscreens, I would personally pass on this sunscreen.  This would be a perfect sunscreen for those with normal to oily skin types though and maybe combination skin types if you moisturize your cheeks very well!  Overall I give this sunscreen two thumbs up and would definitely recommend you check this out if you are looking for a physical sunscreen that doesn’t give you a bad white cast!
