Don't know about the best, although certainly the best facial sunscreens for use under makeup that I've tried. I'm using Bioré Watery Essence sunscreen, which is fab, very light, no white cast, non-greasy. Contains alcohol so not great if you're sensitive to it (I'm not, obv). Not for a day on the beach though, you need something more resilient.
It is, however, Japanese. Shouldn't be a problem If you are determined to go K-beauty then Missha in the pink tube, or Hera are meant to be very good too.
I have oily skin and use biore as my everyday sunscreen and love it. Feels like wearing nothing at all. Still looking for a touch up sunscreen though to wear over makeup - I've ordered a product called the face shop air ice puff that yo can apply with a puff - will post when it arrives if it's any good
I have the Missha pink tube and it's very good but several layers leave me a bit ghostlike. I may try the Biore one, and the 2015 reformulation has a rave review by the snail lady but I'm a bit reluctant as I have dry skin and the Biore contains alcohol. I might have a look for the Hada Labo one.
If your skin is drier, try the Biore Aqua Rich Watery Gel (rather than the essence), its wonderful stuff!
Its weightless, has no white cast, no greasy or sticky residue, great under makeup and doesn't irritate me at all and I do tend to get break outs from the majority of sunscreens I've tried. I've spent a fortune over the years on much more expensive products, but will use this forever now
