Sun Guard: Belo Essential Sun Expert Sunblock for the Face

Sunblock is a must in my daily life. I've been a sunblock user ever since I started working. I've been more vain after college. Maybe it's because I am getting old and that means aging. I'm 26 so I'm in my mid-20s. It's now time to prepare myself from the so-called aging life. One factor to combat aging is a reliable sunblock. I have already met my HG sunblock but it's also fun to try other brand. One brand that caught my eyes is the Belo Essential Sun Expert Sunblock.

Belo Essential Sun Expert Sunblock for Face SPF 40PA+++
  • Non-sticky
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Cell-protect
  • Non-Comedogenic

My say:
Performance: 4/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 4/5 stars

Belo Essential is a local brand created by Intelligent Skin Care Incorporated, an affiliate of the Belo Medical Group. Their products are for masses or commercial consumers who are looking for cheaper yet somehow effective or reliable products such as skin whitening and among others. I have used their whitening lotion and soap before but they end up giving me drier skin :(  Though my aunt loves it, so it really depends on our skin condition. FYI, my skin (except my face) is normal. However, I like their facial sunblock. It has high SPF of 40PA+++ means better protection :) It has a white-thin, yet not that watery, texture and feels light on the skin. It doesn't give any white cast because it blends well on the skin. No irritations nor allergies :) The only downside is that it can leave a bit of greasy look. It's okay since I have my reliable powder to keep me shine-free :) The packaging is really nice since it's in an upside-down type. So that means the product will easily come out upon using since most of the product is near the tip already :) The biggest factor that made me buy this is the price. I bought this for less than Php 300 (I'm not sure if it is 259 or 299) at Watsons and very much available everywhere. This is the cheapest sunblock I bought so far. This may be cheap, but performs well :) 

Have you found your HG Sunblock? Might as well try this product who knows this is the one.

I was looking out for a good face sunblock too! I must have missed this belo sunblock because I haven't seen this before in the stores.

I had to order a Kose sublock from an online website :( I really need one asap.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for this review. Ang init na naman and I've been going out a lot lately so I really need something for my face.

I heard lots of feedback regarding this product so I'm going to give it a try. I just hope mahiyang ako dito and won't ruin my face. Hehe.

Thanks again!

Will this not leave a whitish cast on your face? :) Looking for a good sunblock to help protect my face from developing more freckles. :(
