|Here comes the sunblock, and I say... it's alright!|
Now let me talk about the packaging first. I think the yellow theme is very fun and sunblock-appropriate, and it's pleasing to my eyes. I'm not a fan of the bottle itself, though, because it is a bit hard to squeeze. For lotions, I like the easy-to-squeeze bottles, tubes or those with pumps. My bottle is still quite full so dispensing the product is not so hard yet but I think once there's only little product left, it will be hard to get the product out.
Now onto the product itself! This sunblock has an SPF of 45. The product I have that has the closest SPF to this is the San San Soleil Matte Foundation, and that one has SPF 43. There a lot of things that, I believe, are important to know about SPF, and I'll talk about them in another post.
The first thing I do after opening a bottle of anything is smell the product. And this sunblock smells sooooo gooooooood! All the Snoe products I own smell good. The scent is not the usual sunblock scent. I'm not good in describing scents but trust me, this one smells amazing <3
Here's what it looks like on my skin.
|Unblended, semi-blended, blended|
I use this sunblock mostly for my face. So far, it hasn't broken me out or caused any irritation.
|With no makeup on|
L: Without sunblock
R: With sunblock
The consistency of this sun lotion is similar to that of regular body lotions. It's non-greasy, indeed, and it's very easy to apply and blend into the skin. I don't quite feel the moisturizing effect, though, but this product doesn't leave my face dry. That's still ok for me because I always use a moisturizer, anyway.
- Protects my skin from the harmful rays of the sun - It has SPF 45.
- Instantly whitens and brightens up my skin - The whitening process continues as I keep using the product.
- Non-greasy and easy to apply
- No white cast on photos
- SMELLS SOOOOOO NICE
- I haven't experienced irritation so far - I've been using this mostly for my face.
- Affordable - It's priced at P199 for 100ml of product.
- Bottle is hard to squeeze
- Not a very big deal to me but I don't quite feel the moisturizing effect
