Botanical Sun Cream
SPF50+ that wears delightfully and beautifully
The Pure Lotus Botanical Sun Cream is SPF 50+, PA++++ formulated to provide broad spectrum coverage and protection against UVA and UVB rays through chemical sunscreen filters. The formula is invisible on skin, light as air and does not include any pore-clogging ingredients. If that weren't already everything we would want in an SPF, the Pure Lotus elevates the formula to deliver a luxurious experience and additional skincare benefits. Niacinamide helps target dark spots and boost glow, and adenosine helps visibly firm skin. As with the rest of their signature line, their formula includes an exclusive white lotus leaf extract that is packed with antioxidants and visibly soothes skin. Satsuma mandarin peel, green tea, aloe vera, and rice extracts comprise a smart combination of ingredients that help visually fight signs of damage and pamper skin with nourishment. Both the elevated ingredients and delightful texture make this sun cream feel more like a luxe lightweight moisturizer that disappears into skin than it does your typical heavyweight SPF. Swipe on for sun protection and love your balanced, radiant skin.

Texture: light-as-air cream that quickly absorbs with a balanced, matte finish

Scent: no added fragrance. A beautiful scent from natural ingredients that has a quickly disappearing and refreshing citrusy top note and a base of freshly cut botanicals like the rest of the Pure Lotus line

    It's hard to find a sunscreen that you actually look forward to using. We know that SPF is imperative for skin health but it's a product that can feel like a chore rather than a delight. We don't curate sunscreens easily or often to our site because we know there are plenty of sunscreens available elsewhere that get the job done. We want to offer you the very best and that means finding a sunscreen that'll provide protection but go a step beyond to deliver an indulgent experience so that you'll truly love using it daily. When we first experienced the Pure Lotus Jeju Botanical Sun Cream, the first reaction by all testers was unanimous "ooooh's" as we fell in love with the decadent application. The light soft-cream texture, the fast absorption, the invisible look, the beautiful natural and subtle scent, and the way skin felt so smooth, hydrated and somehow matte (not dry, but a beautiful balanced, matte) - all of it made for one of the most fantastic sunscreen experiences we've had. But the best part is that with continued use, we saw skin become more radiant and visibly firmed and plumped. Needless to say, we happily stuck to wearing this sunscreen daily - and actually wanted to show off the finish on Zoom.

    Less than 5% of the hundreds of brands and thousands of products we test make the cut. Our rigorous curation process ensures that your skin only gets the very best.

    Discover Talent

    Our search begins in Korea. We scour the web, do consumer shop-alongs, and interview store directors, top dermatologists, esteemed estheticians, beauty labs and the brands themselves to find cult sensations with an obsessively loyal following. We repeat this intensive search every 4-6 weeks.

    Ask Questions

    We’re not interested in products that get popular through marketing or celebrity endorsements alone. Instead, we look for items adored by real people. We roll up our sleeves and pore over reviews, study results and ask the right questions to make sure we understand exactly what inspires such devotion.

    Examine Ingredients

    We examine every ingredient list for quality that doesn’t cut corners, and we always seek out gentle, natural formulations. If we don’t like what we see when we look under the hood, the item doesn’t make it to our showroom.

    Prioritize Details

    Of course a product should work—but beautiful textures, addictive scents and über-chic, innovative packaging help to wow us, too.

    Review R&D

    We think it’s important to know who’s behind a product, so we personally interview every brand’s executive and R&D teams to ensure that they’re committed to quality. In fact, we avoid brands that don’t have internal R&D capabilities, as we firmly believe beauty should be grounded in science.

    Test Formulas

    Our staff and our founder personally test every product across metrics including packaging, texture, scent, user experience — and results! This process takes a minimum of 4-8 weeks. We take these products home and use them daily, to make sure that our initial analysis stands the test of time.

    Assemble Focus Groups

    We assemble focus groups of various ethnicities, skin types and age ranges to test the products and ask exhaustive questions. Only items that receive at least 8 out of 10 stars across the board (and cause no adverse reactions) make it to the final round.
