Javin de Seoul wink sun base SPF 50+ PA+++ review

Javin de Seoul wink sun base SPF 50+ reviewIt has been so long since I’ve worn makeup.  I blame covid, to be honest.  But looking homeless for so long has really gotten me wanting to look cute again.  Jolse recently added the brand Javin de Seoul to their store and I couldn’t be more excited!  I’ve seen their black cushion all over the internet before but never knew what the hype was about.  So with that thought, I of course picked up that cushion alongside quite a few other products from the brand.  Starting off with their wink sun base, let’s see how the brand performs!  Let’s get into the review :).

Javin de seoul sun basePackaging:
The Javin de Seoul wink sun base comes in a hard plastic bottle with a twist-off lid.  To be honest, I think the plastic is a little too hard for my liking.  I’m not sure if it is because I have tendonitis on both my wrists, but it seriously is hard hard plastic.  You most definitely won’t be able to get every drop of this sun base.

Javin de Seoul reviewNot sure if the brand will ever see this, however, if they do, maybe consider one of those softer plastic squeeze tubes.

Javin de Seoul reviewTexture/ Finish + Color/ Pigmentation:
The texture of this sun base is quite thick, to my surprise.  Most sunscreens/makeup bases I’ve tried in the past are usually on the thin side.  Not this baby!  It also is a little bit hard to blend in.  It does offer a decent hydration level, however, it leaves my skin looking pasty white.  You can’t seem to notice it in the pictures down below due to the bright lights, but I can definitely tell you not to wear this sun base on its own!  You will look like Casper the ghost!!!

You can use it as a brightening step in your makeup routine before the foundation.  This tip would only do to the extent of those with medium skin tones since anything darker than that, might make you look ashy.

Javin de Seoul sun base reviewI’m not sure if you can see this properly.  You can see where the base was applied and where it wasn’t.  It stops right at the wrist and is much whiter than the rest of my arm.

Javin de Seoul wink sun base reviewHere is my skin before.  My skin is quite irritated at the moment due to the super cold weather outside and the heater is on full blast to keep me from becoming a human popsicle.  I’m always on the hunt to find the perfect makeup base/ skincare routine so my foundation/ BB cushion can go on smoothly.  I do still love the Missha glow skin balm but my skin has become so dry, I need something a bit more now.

Javin de Seoul wink sun base reviewThe best method is just your good old fashion fingers.  You’ll definitely need the warmth of your fingers to make this base blend.

My skin is definitely more hydrated with the sun base (picture to the right), however like I mentioned before, you do look a little pasty afterward.  I’m pale already and this makes me look like a ghost in real life.  I do apply the Javin de Seoul wink cushion afterward in my next review, so stay tuned for that!  It does look much better with something over it, so don’t wear this by itself unless you like that very toned-up look.

Javin de seoul wink sun base reviewI do have to say, makeup was applied on top easily and there was no piling. I can’t say the difference is big enough for me to do this extra step though.

-makeup application went smoothly on top
-SPF 50+ PA+++

-major white cast

Overall thoughts:
I can definitely make this sun base work, however, it isn’t a product I will be looking into repurchasing.  I do like that it is visibly hydrating and it does make my make up go on a bit better without bunching up on my dry patches.  I don’t really appreciate the heavy white cast the formula causes and this isn’t a sunscreen you can reapply over your makeup either.  Overall I’m meh about this product and would pass on it.
