Torriden Dive in mild sun cream review

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewFrom Torriden dive in serum to their Torriden solid in ceramide lip essence, the brand has been popping off like crazy in Korea and I thought I would test it out for you guys.  During the time of ordering, Torriden dive in mild sun cream was ranked pretty high on Glowpick (Korea’s consumer rating platform).  The ranking has dropped quite a bit, but the average ranking is quite high 4.42/5 stars!  Let’s get into the review.

Torriden sunscreen reviewFull name of product:
Torriden dive in mild sun cream

Limited edition/ Permanent?:

Description of product:
“Ten types of Hyaluronic Acid with different molecule sizes are absorbed more easily and deliver intense hydration all the way to the inside of the skin.

High-molecular Hyaluronic Acid with a weight of 2000 kDa forms an outer moisture barrier and locks in moisture.

Medium-molecular Hyaluronic Acid with a weight of 1200 kDa creates an inner moisture barrier. Medium-molecular Hyaluronic Acid with a weight of 1000 kDa deeply hydrates the skin.
Low-molecular Hyaluronic Acid with a weight of 200 kDa improves hydration inside the skin. Low-molecular Hyaluronic Acid with a weight of 4.5 kDa retains moisture in the skin.
The non-nano formula with a particle size of 100 nm or more is less likely to be absorbed into the skin. Thus, this sunscreen is safe and mild.
Contains Panthenol and Allantoin that help soothe and hydrate the skin. Suitable for sensitive skin.”

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewProduct packaging:
The packaging is nothing to write home about.  The Torriden Dive in mild sun cream comes in a relatively plain squeeze tube with a light blue lid.  I’m going, to be honest, I find Torriden’s packaging and branding kind of bland.  But the brand seems to be quite popular domestically in Korea, so I guess I have to try it.

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewThe lid is your typically pop-off lid with a small dispensing tip.  Seriously, there’s not much to say about it.

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewTexture/ Finish:
I read a lot of Korean reviews saying this sunscreen is much more hydrating than a lot of the other ones on the market.  I personally find this sunscreen to be hard to blend, but then again, this is a 100% physical sunscreen.  I should have checked beforehand what type of sunscreen it is since physical sunscreens sometimes make my skin itchy.  I would have to say this sunscreen didn’t dry me out in the long run, however because it was so hard to blend into the skin, I didn’t enjoy it as much.

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewThere is also a strong white cast, which you can see where the sunscreen ends at my wrist.  Keep in mind, Koreans like that “tone up” effect, meaning a whiter and brighter complexion.  In-person, the white cast isn’t as bad and does blend in after a while.  I’m not sure how this will show up on darker complexions.  I’m already a pale person and this shows up in me.

Torriden dive in mild sun cream reviewThis sunscreen is also not flash photography proof, so don’t even think about it.  There is a nice natural glow to it which won’t make you look heavily greasy, however, those with oily skin type might find it a bit too dewy for their liking.

No fragrance detected

-feels light on the skin

-strong white cast
-takes a bit of time to fully blend into the skin

Overall thoughts:
I do kind of see why Koreans love this sunscreen, but you have to remember the cultural differences.  They enjoy the brighter and lighter complexions, while the overseas individuals complain and hiss at any bit of white cast.  I personally don’t mind a little bit of white cast, but sometimes I just don’t want to think and coordinate if I want to deal with the white cast or not.  Personally, I wouldn’t repurchase this specific sunscreen due to the overwhelming sunscreens from other brands that offer a no-white cast option that is just as hydrating and light.  Overall this is a pass for me but there is definitely someone out there that will enjoy it more than me.
