One summer, I had to go to Austin, TX for a 2-week business trip. As a pale Asian (I own this proudly!) who did not want to get grilled under the Texas sun, I went through trial by fire on which sunscreen actually kept me from developing freckles. (Not that I have anything against them, but I just already have a lot of them and would not like to develop any more lol). This sunscreen is THICK, and applies with a white cast, but for my pale skin it acted as a good primer for make-up. And this was the only sunscreen where I didn't develop any freckles.
It's a bit thick, so you do have to rub it a bit for it to absorb into your skin. Also, it's not the cheapest sunscreen out there, especially compared to all the other Asian kinds.
I mix a bit of liquid highlighter with this and it gave my skin a healthy sheen + acted as a primer!
