Inspite of already having five sunscreens in rotation, I just had to get this one the moment I saw it on my newsfeed. Canmake’s Cica Mint Sunscreen. It’s just like their clear, made even better with Cica mint that can help combat redness. I have combination skin and am prone to redness on my face, especially on my cheeks, chin, and nose area. Hearing the benefits sounds like music to my ears.
Not only that, but Canmake’s Cica Mint Sunscreen also claims to have ten skin-enhancing ingredients, so I can skip the moisturizer in the mornings. I am lazy like that. I like multipurpose products.
Why am I addicted to sunscreen? Aside from my retinol use, research shows that using a sunscreen every day helps slow down the skin’s aging process. According to a study, people who use broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis experience 24 percent less skin aging than those who use sunscreen only intermittently.

Like other sunscreens, you need to use at least a quarter of a teaspoon for your entire face. Sometimes I put more. I want my skin fully protected from the sun. What I love about Canmake’s Cica Sunscreen is that it’s never sticky. It feels like applying cool water to your skin and leaves a clear bright shiny finish. Sorta makes youre skin “glass” if it’s clear, oily if it isn’t.
What’s the difference between Clear 01 and Cica? The GREEN of course! It has a subtle green pigment that helps neutralize skin’s redness, and the Cica ingredient itself helps calm redness and inflammation. It does help to have other skin-enhancing ingredients too so you can skip using other skincare products like moisturizers or serums during the daytime. Especially in our hot and humid environment, layering skincare is not so great.
I have a Light-Medium skin and it doesn’t leave any white cast on my skin. Looks great on photos too, with or without flash. It also doesn’t sting or burn my eyes. While Anessa Sunscreen (my other love) is great, when it gets into my eye it burns!
The only gripe I have with Canmake’s Cica Sunscreen is the price. In the official PH store, it costs 749php for a 40g tube. With the amount of sunscreen we need to use daily, this is empty in 2 weeks. You can get it cheaper from resellers but BEWARE OF FAKES.
That’s the reason why I have to use other sunscreen brands. Huhuhu tinitipid ko to! I use this for special occasions like when I’m going out on a date or an event, not for daily use.
I read other feedback that using Canmake sunscreen breaks them out, according to a review on reddit, so use with caution. What works for me may not work for you.
