About the product
What Is It:
Do creamy sunscreens feel too heavy for your skin? Then this sunscreen in gel form is your SPF solution! With a high SPF of 50+ PA+++ protection and totally invisible, clear matte finish, the A’Pieu Pure Block Aqua Sun Gel 50ml will keep your skin protected from UV radiation without heaviness or stickiness. Plus, this sun gel can also be used as a “cool down” gel for sunburned or inflamed skin!
Looking for (practically) the perfect sunscreen? We love this sunscreen for its lightweight feel, fast dry-down, and no white cast. Read our full review here. And keep it refrigerated for bonus relief!
How to use:
As a last step in your skincare routine, apply a generous amount to your skin and tap lightly. Apply at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. You can also use the gel whenever your skin needs a cooling, calming treatment.

Consider this sister brand of K-beauty favorite Missha the younger, more affordable, perhaps even hipper version. With an eye towards trending colors and affordable skincare, A’Pieu is also socially conscious — they don’t do animal testing and try to keep their products as natural as possible. With a Snail Vital Cream that is a bestseller, A’Pieu is a great brand if you’re just getting into beauty and skincare or if you’re looking for more affordable options. W2Beauty is one of the few places you can buy A’Pieu online, and we like it for its affordability and solid quality.
