Sunplay Sport UV: Body Mist & Lotion

It may be raining non stop, and therefore cooler in my neck of the woods (24℃, yo!) but that doesn't mean that I can neglect sun protection!

Sunplay Sport UV Body Mist SPF120 PA++++ (RM 58.90 for 165 ml) says body on the can, but directions covers facial usage, so I am guessing that it is safe to use it errwhere. My misgivings on aerosol type sunscreens are well documented, and I shall link it here to save you the trouble to look for that particular post. Otherwise, I have no other complaints and only compliments. I know, rare for me, haha! The barely there scent, the light as air (almost) texture and the easy breezy application makes this sunscreen a delight to wear.

Shake 4-5 times before use. Hold can 6-8 inches away from skin and spray onto body evenly. Do not spray directly onto face. Spray onto palm and apply evenly on face. For desired result, re-apply as needed or after towel dry, vigorous outdoor activity. Do not stay too long under the sun even while using a sunscreen product.

Sunplay Sport UV Lotion SPF120 PA++++ (RM 43.50 for 35 g) feels like nothing once it dries down. And that is where the good things end. It leaves a crazy white cast that won't look out of place if you are on the fairer side but on me, it just calls attention to the fact that my neck and face are two shades apart. Besides that, my nose gets super clogged whenever I apply this. Methinks comedogenic ingredients are lurking... anyone care to shed some light and share their experience with this sunscreen?

I copy+paste the lotion ingredients here: http://cosdna.com/eng/ingredients.php

Looks like it most likely doesn't cause acne or clogged pores. But it's a zinc oxide based sunscreen so if you apply anything zinc oxide or titanium dioxide on your skin, you at least have to double cleanse because those stuff don't come off easily even if you think your skin is clean. Maybe that's why you're getting clogged pores?

I'm prone to clogging and acne, never had problems with the lotion.
