For those of you out there with sensitive skin, you know what a battle it is to find a sunscreen that won’t cause your skin to flare-up, breakout or feel like its suffocating. Because of the lack of affordable sun care products specifically made for sensitive skin, more often than not, those of us with reactive skin tend to simply forgo sun protection, even though we know that we will end up paying the price down the line.

The brand new revamped Anessa Mild range made specifically with sensitive skin in mind, offers protection against UV damage and PM2.5 particles, yet promises to be ultra-comfortable and gentle, so much so that it can even be used on babies as young as six-months!

The Anessa Mild range is designed with a new Smooth Protect Technology, the world-first innovation to minimise the burden on skin by reducing the amount of UV protection agents required while maximising protection and comfort levels. This is what gives the sunscreen the ability to glide on as smooth as silk leaving no ghostly white cast in its wake. 

New And Improved

For the first time, Anessa offers protection not just against damaging UV rays, but also against PM2.5 particles that may penetrate the skin barrier and cause allergies. This creates a separating barrier between skin and external environment, which then helps to reduce the adherence of these dust particles onto skin. 

In its first step towards sustainable packaging, Anessa has adopted a bioplastic bottle for the Perfect UV Mild Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ by using raw material derived from sugarcane from Brazil. The brand estimates that it will reduce carbon dioxide emission by up to 37% with this change to eco-friendly packaging.

Two New Formulations

Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk SPF 50+ PA ++++, $41.90, 60ml

If you suffer from sensitive skin, the Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ is just what you need. Upgraded with the Smooth Protect Technology (which has been in development for five years) this new formulation disperses UV protection agents on the nano-level, ensuring that each individual particle is able to optimally reflect UV rays in all directions.

UV filters, which are responsible for the white cast have been reduced, giving a transparent finish without sacrificing on the protection. 

Anessa Moisture UV Mild Gel SPF 35 PA+++ $34.90, 90g

If your skin is dry and sensitive, we suggest opting for the Anessa Moisture UV Mild Gel SPF 35 PA+++, which moisturises dry skin the second it’s applied. The new improved formula is designed to be ultra-refreshing for a comfortable and barely-there sensation, alleviating the itch, cracks and flaking associated with parched and highly reactive skin.

This mild gel is also sweat, water and friction resistant, but washes off easily with a daily cleanser or soap of your choice. The water-based gel moisturises the instant it’s applied, and is even safe for babies from six months upwards. 

The Moisture UV Mild Gel has a 50% skincare formulation which includes Peony Root Extract which smoothens skin, while Super Hyaluronic Acid, Glycyrrhizate Acid and Glycerin provides moisture.

Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ and Anessa Moisture UV Mild Gel SPF 35 PA+++ are available at Watsons, Don Don Donki, Welcia-BHG, Fairprice, Raffles Medical, Cold Storage and online at, Shopee, Lazada, Redmart and Qoo10.
