This is the second Yadah product from BBCosmetic that I was sent for review. Though London hasn’t really been sunny enough to test out it’s sun protection qualities, I’ve been using this over the last month alternatively with my Biore favourite.
The key ingredient of this suncream is a Korean Prickly Pear Cactus, Opunitia Fiscus-indica. So let’s see how this suncream faired, and if it’s got a place in my skincare favourites!
Yadah Oh My Sun Slush Sunscreen SPF50+/PA++ Review
Benefits: Soothing Effect: It contains a lot of flavonoid which has an excellent soothing and anti-inflammatory effect, soothes sun baked skin and eases stress.
Moisturizing Effect: Prickly pear cactus is like the water tank in deserts, natural moisturizing agents in prickly pear cactus penetrate deep into the skin and moisturize the skin.
Revitalizes the Skin: Contains 5 times as much Vitamin C, Vitamin A, mineral as Aloe. Recharge energy and vitality to your skin
This is a chemical suncream, which uses Avobenzone, Homosalate and Octocrylene to protect the skin from UVA and UVB.
The differentiating ingredient within this suncream is the inclusion of Opunitia Fiscus-Indica, the prickly pear. Which promises to hydrate the skin and keep it moisturised.

This has a funky green packaging, and is a squeeze tube, similar to most suncreams. Not for those who prefer a minimalist discrete package, that’s for sure!
Product & Scent
This hasn’t got a distinctive scent beyond the usual suncream one. And it’s a pretty strong scent which does linger on the face. It’s a creamy texture, I wouldn’t describe it as slushy, which in my mind is more grainy. This isn’t grainy at all, though you can see little capsules within the suncream. These are the hydrating capsules for nourishing and soothing the skin. Which is where it’s “slush” name is inspired from.
Directions of Use
I apply this in the AM as my last step before make-up. You want about half a walnut in amount, to cover your full face and offer protection.
At first I was nervous to try out a new suncream, especially as I use suncream beneath my make up so it’s really important to me that it plays well with foundation. Fortunately for me this suncream didn’t leave a white caste, and it’s moisturising properties meant that it worked well in prepping my skin for foundation. I found that it was actually better than my biore at keeping my skin hydrated. But I can also imagine that when my skin is in it’s oily phase, that this suncream on top of my moisturiser may be too much.
I don’t have scientific equipment at home, so can’t comment on the efficacy of it’s protection against the sun. Although it does have a 50+ and PA++ rating, which is decently high.
I think that this is a decent suncream, and for the price is certainly a great one to try out if you’re looking for a cosmetically elegant suncream!
