The Best K Beauty Sunsticks

Here are the best K-beauty Sun Sticks for Summer 2024!  Sun sticks are super convenient, and they work amazingly for reapplication. 

Skin 1004 Centella Sun Stick

Although this is like a more mattifying version of the hyalu-cica water-fit sun serum, Cassandra still wouldn’t call this mattifying. It’s more of a skin finish, but it does grip onto makeup really well. Since sun sticks typically contain very little water, this is the most hydrating sunscreen that Cassandra has ever tried. 

Especially if you have drier skin, you can use a serum as your base, and then, you can use the sunstick to reapply throughout the day. This is not water-resistant or waterproof, but a major advantage of this product is that it has centella from Madagascar which truly calms the skin. Plus, the centella is ethically sourced! 

Beauty of Joseon Matte Sun Stick 

This is the most mattifying sun stick that Cassandra has ever used. Cassandra has very oily skin, but this cuts down the oil on her skin so much. If your skin is dry though, you might not like this. But, if you like the purple protector, you’ll like this. When you layer it with the purple protector sunscreen, it will work fabulously.

This sunstick has mugwort and camelia. Both of these ingredients are used in Korea for blemish-prone skin. Cassandra knows from first-hand experience that mugwort is also amazing for inflammation.

When Cassandra was in Korea, she went to the onion farm where they harvest the red onions for the purple protector sunscreen. The farmer gave her some mugwort tea, and it even helped with her period cramps!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Stick - $30 

This is fun and frilly, and it’s technically a Korean-American brand. This isn’t truly for sensitive skin. But, if you want glass, glowy skin, this works amazingly. And because it has the fragrance of a watermelon Jolly Rancher, this provides a wonderful, sensorial experience. Cassandra also likes their Watermelon Glow Moisturizer. It’s actually one of her tried and trues!

While this is the total opposite of the Mugwort sunscreen, Cassandra thinks the niacinamide stick is even better than Glow Recipe’s niacinamide dew drops and the blueberry cleanser. This is probably one of the best things that Glow Recipe has ever launched. It will definitely give you that K Beauty glow. So, Cassandra likes to apply this over makeup or on her highlight areas because it also leaves a sheen. 

Abib Airy Sunstick

This is Cassandra’s favorite, and it’s water-resistant for 80 minutes. This is one of the most beautiful sunsticks in the entire world. You can use it on your face, neck, and chest. It has a half-moon shape. So, it’s very easy to apply to the contours of your face. 

This feels like mango butter on the skin, and it’s one of the best sunscreens Cassandra has probably used. It’s great for combo skin as well all skin types. If want something in between dewy and matte, this is the one! It works under makeup, under sunscreen, and even over makeup.

Plus, this uses both American and Korean sunscreen filters!
