    • Why it's Cult

      Fanatical about sun protection, South Korean women know a thing or two about sunscreen. World leaders when it comes to innovation, where SoKo leads, the rest of the world swiftly follows – which is why we’re so excited to add Thank You Farmer’s featherweight sun filters to our global Hall of Fame – providing consistent, invisible protection from the damaging effects of UV rays.

    • Description

      A featherweight daily defence, Thank You Farmer’s Sun Project Light Sun Essence SPF 50+ infuses skin with cooling aloe extract (to reduce redness and calm irritation), while sacha inchi oil and lotus flower water combine to soften visibility of lines and bolster skin’s resilience – improving suppleness and ‘stretch’ while deflecting the damaging effects of UV rays. Readily absorbed and completely non-greasy, this hydrates without smothering skin, controlling oil to maintain a smooth, semi-matte finish.

    • How to use

      After basic skincare, take a proper amount of the product, then spread evenly on the area which will be exposed to the sun. Use before exposure to the sun. Apply again to maintain protection, especially after sweating, swimming or wiping with a towel.

      Warnings: Do not use on damaged or irritated skin, skin with wound, eczema and dermatitis. Do not use in case of allergy to any of the ingredients. For external use only. Discontinue use if signs of irritation or red spot, swelling, itching, stimulus have occurred and consult with dermatologist. Discontinue use if side effects as above have occurred on the area of application after exposure to direct sunlight. Avoid direct contact with eyes. Even when using sunscreen product, prolonged exposure to the sun is not recommended. Keep babies and children out of direct sunlight. Excessive exposure to the sun is a serious threat to health.

    Thank You Farmer Sun Project Light Sun Essence SPF50 Reviews

    Will repurchase
    [I have "easygoing" but dry skin and am a caucasian woman in her early 30s]. Loved this product and will repurchase. It handled being but over a vast assortment of serums without pilling and absorbed quickly on me. I don't use foundation but occasionally dab on a bit of concealer (from MAC). I noticed that the concealer went on best if I added it before the SPF had absorbed/dried fully. It gave me no breakouts and the eye-stinging that some reviewers mention never happened to me.
    Not for use under foundation
    I was really hopeful about this product. It went on nicely, but unfortunately still leaves a slightly greasy feel on the skin. My biggest issue with this was trying to use it under foundation - I tried with 3 different foundation formulas that I normally have no issues with and it just leaves a patchy effect and accentuates pores, dry patches and fine lines. It also really affects the staying power of the foundation. I think this one will be for bare skin days only.
    I have olive skin tone and I don't feel that it leaves a white cast. Also, I like the consistency. Glides on nicely
    Almost perfect
    I have dry, olive-toned, non-sensitive skin. This product was hydrating, nicely scented, gives a nice slight glow once it settles, & has no white cast. The only negative it has really is that it stings my eyes.
    Listen.....this product does feel amazing on the skin, don’t get me wrong. I’ve tried the water sun cream and this and tbh my fave is probs the water sun cream!! just because of the way it feels. if you have super oily skin or oily skin this is for sure for you, it sinks straight in without feeling like extra hydration. Thank you Farmer has amazing skincare though so I still fully rate them, respect.
    My new fave
    This brand continues to amaze me. Every time I try a new product from them they end up as my new go to. I am almost through this spf and I dread having to use up the ones in my cabinet before repurchasing this. It leaves no whitecast, even though it is white when it comes out of the tube. It gives me a nice healthy glow, I'm a dry skin gal so I love not looking like a dead cracker. Also my makeup applies perfectly on top of it, both with and without primer and I can apply it to my eyearea without being affected by it even though I have super sensitive eyes.
    Having used factor 50 for years on my face, this is by far my favourite. It is so light and smooth to apply, it isn't oily or sticky at all. It glides on - you don't have to rub it in to get it to disappear. I use is every morning and I wouldn't change to another SPF now.
    its okay
    It is quite oily (which gets worse throughout the day) and stings my eyes, but didn't break me out.
    I use this every morning alongside my daily moisturiser and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and doesn't leave a white cast. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and this does not harm it at all.
    Exactly what I wanted
    Bought this hoping for an SPF that I could easily use on top of my daily moisturiser (without feeling heavy) and wouldn't clog up my skin. Can confirm it does both of those things - is light and easy to apply. Very pleased with it and would recommend it!
    Holy grail SPF for the oily and melanated
    I have oily skin, plus I am Indian, so finding an SPF that didn’t leave a white cast, didn’t break me out and was a high factor coverage was nigh on impossible. Until this one. Seriously, this met all my criteria and feels like an additional moisturising layer on top of normal moisturiser. It does have a slight chemically smell, but it doesn’t linger and frankly even if it did, it wouldn’t bother me given what I get in return for it. Have re-bought and am not looking back.
    Great spf
    It does not leave the skin oily, I really love it but I wish it came as a bigger size
    Not worth the hype
    I love thank you farmer products, but this one in particular didn’t suit my skin, my acne prone skin was finally cleared up until I used this product and now my face is messed up. Please don’t use this product if you have oily/acne prone skin.
    Excellent but packaging needs to change
    This is a great sunscreen and I'm about to order my second (rather small) tube. But the packaging is poor - the top of the tube is too narrow to balance so you can't stand it on its end, meaning its hard to get all the sunscreen out without cutting the tube open. I'm amazed this passed anyone's package testing, to be honest. Work to do here, and it lets a great product down.
    Not spv50
    This was my second attempt at finding a non-tinted mineral sunscreen and based on the reviews it looked quite promising. I have been using it in Scotland over the past few weeks where even on a clear day the temp doesn't tend to go above 25c (so nowhere near as hot as Korea). Sadly, I haven't been able to rely on it as an everyday sun protection product, I've been aware my skin was burning after an hour or so outside. I have fair skin and don't sunbathe, so when I say I was outside I mean nipping to the shops or doing a bit of gardening. I've tried applying more product but it really doesn't make a difference. On a couple of occasions, I have put a tinted foundation with spf30 (another brand) over the top, just in areas where I wanted a bit of concealer or highlighting. On those days I noticed my skin had caught the sun where only the Thank You Farmer was applied, yet it was fine where the foundation had been lightly applied.
    Great product
    I bought this after a friend recommended it and I’m so happy I did. Most other SPF products clog my pores but this is super light!
    Great products
    I am just repurchasing the Thank You Farmer light essence, my favourite sunscreen recently discovered.
    An oily skin’s best friend.
    To set the scene, I have *super* oily skin. Not just oily, the type of oily skin that makeup will just slide off after an hour, that makes lipstick bleed and eyeliner migrate down the face. Because of this I’ve avoided SPF like the plague, remembering my teenage days of heavy, sticky feeling suncream on my face and not wanting to recreate it. That’s why this product is such a game changer for me, I now wear SPF daily! There’s no heavy, tacky residue, makeup sits comfortably on top of this formula and there’s no white cast on my medium skin tone. If this sounds like your skin and you’re avoiding SPF because of past experiences- please try this one! You won’t regret it.
    Bestt ever
    Best sunscreen ever. I will definitely be stocking up backups on it. I do get a little greasy on the T zone but other than that it has a thin texture, doesn't break me out and doesn't have a strong noticeable fragrance! So glad I stumbled upon this.
    Good make up base
    Doesn't leave a white residue like other SPFs and works well under foundation.
    Best spf!
    I have tried so many spf's in my lifetime. They either pill under makeup, make me look greasy or far too thick to have anything on top! Then came along this spf. So lightweight, no stickiness or greasiness. Perfect for layering with other skin care and makeup. It has a cooling effect on the skin. Just love it. Would recommend to anyone.
    close to perfection
    Spf for me is T-R-I-C-K-Y! On a day to day basis, I never wear make up so I can reapply SPF during the day and stay protected. But on my combination skin is so difficult to find a sunblock that is hydrating, doesn't clog the pores, doesn't shine too much. This is very hydrating, it stays creamy for a long time (but not too creamy that becomes overwhelming) and leaves the right amount of shine on the skin. It is great when reapplied. The only down side is that it burns the eyes and so I need another spf for the eye area... but I have this problem with most spfs...
    Nice small compact SPF, especially if you travel. Its slightly oily but I don’t mind it and the best thing is high protection to my face.
    Very heavily fragranced
    I bought this because I was looking for a very light, fast-absorbing SPF for my oily skin. I've found that even if this sinks in quickly (it's very thin and doesn't leave any white cast), it makes me more oily during the day, no matter which products I use underneath and on top of it. It also caused breakouts, probably because of the amount of fragrance! I didn't look when I bought it, but it's right there in the middle of the ingredient list. It's way too much! I don't put perfume on my face, so I don't see why I would smear it all over if it's in a cream? I've decided to keep it in my bag for when I need to reapply sunscreen on my body in the summer. I wouldn't recommend it.
    Doesn't work with my increasingly oily skin
    When I bought this product my skin was more of a combination skin. I had a somewhat oily T-zone and the description of this sunscreen seemed to fit my needs. In the beginning I was quite impressed, and as another reviewer has written, I thought I had found my HG sunscreen! Light-weight texture that dryed down to a semi-matte finish and on top of that it did not feel like it added to the greasyness of my skin as the day went by. If my skin had stayed the same I would probably have given this product 4 stars - just because it was not completely weight-less/non-existent on the skin (which I would definitely prefer). I am now at the very last drops of sunscreen and as time has passed my skin has gotten even more oily and at the moment I would define my skin as completely oily. It no longer seems like the product dries down, it just seems to add to the shine and I really feel the extra layer on my. As a sidenote, I would like point out that the narrow screw cap makes it nearly impossible to have the tube standing upside down, it pretty much just have to lie, which makes it a pain to get the last bit of product out. In conclusion: I'm still on the hunt for my perfect sunscreen. Would not repurchase, not even if my skin decided to back to its previous state.
    Lovely product
    Having bought several SPF50 products recently this was by far my favourite. So light on the skin, no greasy residue, no white casting and makeup goes on perfectly on top. I'll definitely buy this on repeat.
    This feels nice on my skin, haven't experienced it pilling under make-up like others have. I also don't find it makes my skin too oily compared to my other SPF (Biore watery essence). The main issue is that this stings my eyes like crazy, all throughout the day. It doesn't subside. I feel like it has also made my eyes more sensitive to light as a side effect when I wear this. I will probably try a separate one for my eye area as I do like this for my face.
    Excellent product
    Used this for the first time in a heat wave. High protection, non greasy, no white caste and no breakouts. This will be hard to beat!
    The one for me!
    I hate wearing sunscreen so was looking for something that felt more like skincare. This is the one! Sinks in beautifully and is a dream under makeup.
    Never buying a different SPF again
    I honestly can't express how incredible this SPF is. I have been desperately trying an array of suncreams over the years to try and find 'the one', and now that search is over. This SPF gives you so much more than just sun protection. My skin is healthier, glowier and generally more soothed since using this product. I also used this product throughout the recent heatwave and have had absolutely no sun damage whatsoever. Thank You Farmers' Water Sun Cream seems to have better reviews but - imo - this is by far the superior product. Their Water Cream - while still fab! - has the habit of leaving you *very* shiny. This sun cream has all the benefits of the Water Cream and more (I would say this product has had more non-SPF related benefits for my skin) and doesn't leave you looking like a disco ball like the Water Cream does. Don't know what I'd do if they ever discontinued this. Won't be buying a different SPF anytime soon.
    My face suncream
    I love this. The thank you farmer water cream gets all the hype but this one is the real star in my opinion. Weightless and an amazing texture
    I have a sensitive skin, and sometimes have a bit of acne. This product made my acne worse. I thought at first that my acne was due to an other product so I stopped it. Nothing changed. So I stopped using this sunscreen for like 4 days (I didn't leave home). Not pimple appeared during this period. When I tried it again I got small pimples but 6 in one day. I hope I can find the ingredient that make my skin go badly so I don't make the same mistakes..
    It left a sticky layer on my skin, didn't absorb into the skin, and made me increasingly oily throughout the day. I have been struggling with acne but my skin has been clear the last year. After I started using this, I've been getting breakouts after every use.
    My new favourite SPF!
    I've been searching for an alternative to Ultra Violette ever since I moved away from Australia. Nothing has come close until now! I love how quickly this sinks in, the smell is nice but not over-powering and it's honestly a joy to use every day
    Lovely, lightweight SPF
    Sunscreens have come a long way (thank goodness) and this essence is proof of that. It has a lovely, light texture that feels fresh and cooling on my skin. It sinks in quickly and leaves no traces of white marks or stickiness. It also doesn’t leave my skin with an oily sheen; it just looks healthy. I have quite oily skin and find using this over my serums gives my skin enough moisture in the mornings, although other products and makeup do sit nicely over it.
    Best ever!!
    Love everything about this sunscreen! Exactly what I was looking for. Light, absorbs quickly, heavily scented but my sensitive skin loves it anyway. Winner
    With no exaggeration, I have this stockpiled in my bathroom. It's a beautiful light texture that soaks straight into the skin feeling like nothing at all, and with no white cast at all or excessive shine that many sunscreens leave me with. I look forward to putting this on my face at the end of my morning routine, I really couldn’t recommend it more!
    Feels nice but pils
    Feels nice and goes on well but it pils easily and flakes unfortunately.
    No breakout and no burns!
    Used this on a recent holiday in Spain as my facial sunscreen and it provided as good coverage as my other Asian facial sunscreen. Bit pricey comparatively, but it feels luxe going on and blends to invisibility instantly. Even my husband loves it!
    Love this but packaging broke
    I have oily skin prone to breakouts but this spf has been a godsend- not broke me out or clogged my pores.. however the nozzle on the packaging broke and had to decant the product into a different container which was annoying! Will repurchase but better packaging needed
    This is the best sunscreen I have come across in decades!
    It is true to word - light essence. It is very lightweight and It is not greasy at all. I find it suitable for all skin types. I have oily skin and it works perfectly for me - it hasn’t made my face or skin more oily. This is also the first sunscreen I have come across that doesn’t leave a white cast! It’s so comfortable to wear! I have restocked on it over and over and recommended to friends and family. You will definitely love this once you use it. It’s a fantastic product.
    Makes my skin feel itchy
    I really liked this sunscreen (I bought this and the 30spf version) as it’s a mineral sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white cast and feel heavy on the skin. It’s light weight and has a bit of matte finish but without being drying. The sad thing is that I think the fragrance is making my skin feel itchy :( I really wish there was no fragrance in this as it would have been the sunscreen for me! For reference I have sensitive and acne prone skin.
    I was looking for a new SPF which was not a moisturiser and could be worn on its own separate to my makeup, and didn't make my skin breakout. This is a lovely light fluid feels nice on, great under make up, but after using for a few weeks continuously, I was getting spots, and could not attribute them to anything other than this product. So its going in the bin, I'm going to return to Clinique City Block.
    The ONE for me!
    Having oily skin and trying to find an SPF that doesn't exacerbate my oiliness or leave a weird tacky white-cast has been a tricky task, but I'm so glad I've found this product. Not having a=the right SPF for me was making me super lazy in applying it because I just didn't like the feeling. Since this arrived I've been wearing it everyday and it performs brilliantly under make-up too. I will be repurchasing this, no question!
    A dream!
    Can't fault this! Amazing light texture, absolutely no white cast (I'm mixed race so there's no hiding when it comes to that) keeps my skin moisturised but not oily at all (I have combination skin). No irritation or redness. I would recommend to everyone!
    This is the best! I prefer this to the water moisturizer they have, but this is great for sensitive skin, doesn't leave a shine, great under make up. Will be buying this again and again and again!
    Best SPF I've brought!
    I'll probably never get another SPF again! This is my holy grail - I have a darker skin tone so SPF's always look ashy on me. This is completely invisible! It doesn't feel heavy and it fits perfectly on my skin; even when I wear makeup! 100% Recommend!
    My natural skin tone is naturally hued somewhere between white and duck-egg blue, if I were a Farrow & Ball paint I'd be 'Glacial Flurry' or 'Polar Bear's Fart'. I regularly correct this with fake tan that transports me towards 'cream'. I need SPF more than most, but hate wearing it any other time than on holiday when I happily walk around smelling of coconuts. Like disguising vegetables in pasta pesto for kids, this primer encourages me to use SPF without realising it under my makeup. It disappears into an undetectable veil almost on contact; to the point where if I don't pay attention I accidentally apply it twice because I have a memory like a goldfish that toured with the Rolling Stones through the 60s. Brilliant SPF for those who dislike their beauty 'greens'.
    Perfect. Just perfect.
    This sunscreen moisturizes the skin, yet has a very light texture, semi-matte finish and it doesn't break me out AT ALL. (Just in case, my skin is oily, acne prone and usually feels dehydrated. There's a win in each and every aspect.) Also, it smells really good!=. Such a delicate fresh scent. Which doesn't irritate me like other sunscreens do, haha. This product is exactly what I've been looking for and I'm going to stick to it <3
    It's a no from me
    When I first put it on, I thought I've finally found my HG sunscreen: weight-less texture, no white cast, no strong scent, a semi-matte finish. Then after about 10minutes, problems appeared. Firstly, it stings my eyes something bad l. And we all know you have to apply sunscreen around your eyes to protect the delicate, crease-prone skin. I had to wet a tissue and wipe off any product from around my eyes. Secondly, it rolls/piles under certain foundation. Seems to sit well under Chanteicaille future skin, which is a water-based foundation. But goes patchy under By Terry Densillis, which is I imagine, emollient-based. Won't repurchase. Alas, the search for a good sunscreen continues.
    Holy Grail Sunscreen
    It's amazing. Leaves no white cast on my medium tan skin, hydrating enough for oily skin but non greasy, light in texture. This is a really good sunscreen, it basically disappears into my skin and feels like nothing.
