Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++ Review and Swatches

Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm is a triple function beauty balm that brightens skin, has anti-aging properties, and provides natural coverage.

Price: $39 for 40ml/1.4oz. Available at

Pros: Good packaging is always a plus and I appreciate the easy to use pump.  It also contains high SPF level and PA+++. A little fact about sunscreen rating, PA is normally seen in Asian brands. PA is a rating system for sun protection from UVA that is based on Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) and SPF measure protection of from UVB rays. There are three levels of PA:

-PA+ some level of UVA protection
-PA++ moderate level of UVA protection
-PA+++ good level of UVA protection

As mentioned above, it contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as sunscreen. It also contains Arbutin which brightens akin and evens out skintone. Coverage is light to medium therefore no foundation is needed.

Cons: It has a pinkish gray undertone that does not match with my yellow undertone. I can see two different tones between my face and neck. This is better suited for someone with pink undertone. In addition, the advertise antioxidant bio-peptides are at the very end of the ingredients list, which is probably not enough to make a difference in your skin.

Overall: It is made for normal, combination, and sensitive skin types. Color wise, this best suit someone with light to medium, pink undertone skin. I think most people will appreciate the lightweight mineral sunscreen, decent coverage, natural finish, and the inclusion of Arbutin for brightening.

Rating: 4/5

Disclosure: This review contains sample sent for consideration. The review is base on my honest personal opinions and experiences.
