Product Review: Touch in Sol Pang Pang Sun Cutting Powder SPF 45 PA++

One of the reasons why I like BB creams is because I don't have to put moisturizer and sunblock anymore. It has significantly reduced the amount of products I have to slather my face with and it decreased the amount of time I need every morning. I love multi-purpose products like BB creams because less amount of products to use means more savings and the less amount of time it takes for me to prep myself for work means more time for me to sleep. On days when I want to let my skin breathe and don't want to put makeup on I just use my day moisturizer and a powder that has SPF. I prefer using powders with SPF than using sunblock because I find the latter a bit heavy on my skin and most of the sunblock I've used before broke me out (except for the Biore sunblock which I have only recently started using - and love!). They also tend to make my skin super oily. So when I saw the Touch in Sol Pang Pang Sun Cutting powder I just had to get it. 

I have never heard of the brand before though it is from Korea but the packaging of the CC cream sold me. I saw this sitting beside the CC cream tester and I thought they would make a good tandem. I love the CC cream despite it being heavy on the skin but this Pang Pang Sun Cutting Powder, my opinion is neutral. I was expecting it to help control sebum production of skin though it doesn’t really say anything about that in the packaging but I mean, this is a powder so I assumed it would have some effect on that department as well. It only takes a few minutes – seriously, not even an hour – for my skin to start becoming looking oily and greasy. It may have some effect in blocking UV rays but I can’t see nor feel any tangible effects from this powder. I don’t think I will repurchase this.

  • Comes with mirror
  • Compact so you can bring this anywhere
  • Only a few amounts come out per one pat on the face. It allows you to control the amount of product that goes on your face to avoid over powdering your face.

  • Puff applicator cannot be replaced. I didn’t see any spare puffs in the store so you can replace when needed.
  • Quite expensive.
  • Cannot control shine and oil production of the skin.

I don’t think I will repurchase this product simply because I don’t think I have experienced anything good about it aside from those I mentioned above. But those I mentioned can actually be satisfied by another. I will still use this though because it didn’t break me out anyway and because maybe – just maybe – it does help block the sun’s UV rays.
