Skincare Review | Mela Control Day Cream SPF 32 PA++
I finally have the chance to review this product I got from a Wish Trend package that I won from Yellowycream’s YT giveaway a while back. Out of all the products that came in the package, I’ve used the Ciracle Mela Control Day Cream the most. I needed a lightweight sunscreen and this fit the bill perfectly!

Available in Watsons)“Mela Control Day Cream is a gentle 2-in-1 day cream formula designed
I don’t have anything against the packaging. It comes in a tube and a shiny metal screw top. Since the tube is quiteflat, it doesn’t take up too much space in my makeup bag and it isn’t difficult to squeeze either.Upon applying on my skin, it felt very light and easy to blend. It’s also easily absorbed by my skin although I would give my face a few pats just to be sure.
I used to think this was just a sunscreen. The cream itself looked like a regular sunscreen and I didn’t know it was a moisturizer… until I felt it.
I don’t usually wear moisturizers but I noticed it prevented my skin from drying during my stay in Korea. It was autumn back then so it was significantly cold. It was the only thing I would slather on my face and I never complained about my face drying up so it’s really great!
I still use this back in the Philippines and since the weather is the complete opposite, I find its sunscreen propertiesmore helpful. SPF 32 PA++ is enough for a daily sunscreen and it doesn’t feel greasy like regular sunscreens at all.
That added “PA++” also helps in protecting your face from UVA rays and based from coolsuncare.com
“UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer. Unprotected exposure can lead topremature skin aging and suppression of the immune system. And when your skin’s defenses are down, you’re at risk for skin cancer.”
I also love that it dries semi-matte which is perfect for oily skin people like myself. I don’t mind the extra dewey look because plus the subtle brightening effect, it makes my face look healthier.
If you’re receiving treatments from a dermatologist like I am right now, I would recommend a higher SPF than this one since your skin is more sensitive to the sun. Nonetheless, this product is great for everyday use and I would recommend it even for people with acne-prone and sensitive skin.
Overall, this is my HG sunscreen and moisturizer all in one product. I rarely find products that really work for my extremely oily skin and this definitely delivered. I’ve had mine for more than a year now and I’m probably close to finishing it. Once my skin gets better, I look forward to using this again!
