La Roche Posay Uvidea Aquafresh Gel review

I've been on a hunt for a sunscreen for a really long time since the current sunscreen that I'm using has just ran out. I'm very picky when it comes to choosing sunscreen! My criteria are:
1. Have to be non gresy or sticky once applied to the skin
2. Have to be shine free or minimal shine. Products containing SPF usually contain some shine to it because of the ingredients used in sunscreen that helps to reflect the sun's ray away.
3. Easy to apply. Has to have a certain viscosity and doesn't run down the skin too quickly when I'm dispensing the product from the tube.

Only three criteria but it is actually really hard to find a sunscreen that fits all three! By some miracle, a few days later I was given the La Roche Posay Uvidea Aquafresh Gel to review and it fits ALL three of my criteria for a good sunscreen!

With SPF30 and PA++++, the La Roche Posay Uvidea Aquafresh Gel claims to give superior daily sun protection in a fresh water-break concentrated gel texture. For a long lasting pure skin sensation and prevents hyperpigmentation, complexion greying and UV aging. Protect against UVA for 18 times longer and tested on Asian sensitive skin.

It doesn't run down! I really dislike sunscreen that runs easily, makes application a hassle because of that. I have yet to test this sunscreen till it's maximum exposure time but I doubt I'll be able to test it since I try to avoid the sun as much as I can.
Did you also know that even though you're indoor, you are also prone to UV rays attacking your skin? Thus application of sunscreen is really important even if you're indoor on a sunny day! Too much sun exposure would cause your skin to age faster and of course, we wouldn't want that to happen.

You can redeem a sample of the La Roche Posay Uvidea Aquafresh Gel from to try it out too!
It's available at Guardian, Watsons, National skin center and hospital pharmacies for SGD$38.90.
