Two more nights to go and it's Laboracay weekend! Those that are going have probably packed their stuff already but I know there are still others that haven't even started packing. Well, well, well. This post might just be of help to those who'll be in the beach this Labor Day weekend.
Just a little info about me - I don't use sunscreen everyday. I only use it during summer or when I'm going to the beach or going to another tropical country. It's probably why I'm a bit picky when it comes to products with SPF because I can easily tell when my skin gets dark. I want something that really works.
I have here 4 foolproof sunscreen products that you can use to to keep your face and body from getting burned.
Belo Essentials released a new sunscreen this summer which is their Sun Expert Ultra Gentle Sheer Spray SPF 50 PA+++*. Those that do not like applying the lotion type of sunscreen will love this. I've used this for five days straight when I was in Singapore last Holy Week and I didn't get dark at all. Another thing that I like about this spray is that it's not sticky nor oily. It also gives this sheen effect that your skin is glowing. You can also use this for your face but I haven't tried this on my face yet as I use foundation with SPF. This spray is also safe for kids. I'm not sure why there is a claim that it is safe to use on kids - perhaps other sunscreen spray products aren't. Beats me.
Daylong's Light Gel* for the face and body also has SPF 50 PA+++. If you prefer the lotion type than spray, then this could be the right one for you. It's also not sticky nor oily and dries matte on skin. It's non-comedogenic so your pores won't be clogged by using this!
If you want a sunscreen that is specifically for your face only, then you can try Avene's Very High Protection Cream*. It also has SPF 50 PA+++. It's white but the color disappears when you apply it to your face. It also smells good but not exactly a strong scent. If you're not into makeup but want protection on your face, then use this. SPF 50 should be enough.
Now, if you want some coverage on your face, you can use a foundation with high SPF. Shiseido's UV Protective Liquid Foundation with SPF 43 PA+++ is your go-to product. It has 6 shades to choose from. I feel that it's water resistant and stays on your face the whole day. I swear, I don't know how that's even possible. As in it stays on your face. It also dries matte (which I love) so it's ok if you don't set it with powder. It can set by itself. You might be wondering why I'm even recommending this but trust me, there are ladies that wear makeup even on the beach. It's probably not the norm but there's nothing wrong with that.
Time to enjoy summer without burning your skin!
