i've never liked putting on sunblock on my body because i hate the sticky feeling...most especially on my face! i also hate the whitish cast most sunblocks leave, most especially those with really high spf. but i know it's a must. the only sunblock i've been putting on my face is the Obagi Sunfader...and it's only because it also has whitening properties which i need for my stubborn pimple scars.
one day, during one of my visits to my derma...i complained bout some pigmentations on my arms. she asked me if wear sunblock...to which i answered "NO. but i do apply lotion with some spf." she told me that with the scorching heat of the sun nowadays, it's not enough. and so she gave me this sunblock which can also be used on my face.
what i love:
- feels light on my face...actually lighter than my Obagi Sunfader
- it does give me a bit of shine, but no whitish cast on pictures!
- oily at first, but goes away after some time...and it's nothing that a primer can't fix (winks)
- cheaper than my Obagi (Php3600), this one costs Php800 (i think!)
- a little goes a long way...but yeah, i tend to put a lot! :)
- no allergic reactions
- the high SPF!
- if only it has whitening properties too, i might ditch my Obagi Sunfader and just stick to this.
what i hate:
- the smell...though it says fragrance-free, it still does smell funky. i can say, smells like plastic. but it does go away.
(i can't think of anything else not to like about it...probably will update my post, just in case)
will i buy again?
so there..what about you? what sunblock do you use on your face? how about on your body? or do you use the same brand for both? ugh, with the scorching heat of the sun, nobody's safe. my mom keeps on telling me to apply sunblock even though i'm not going out. and yeah, moms know best. ;)
