Sun Gurad: Sunplay Powdery White Sunblock Lotion

Ever since I've learned the importance of sunblock, I've never turned my back on it anymore. It's on my top three must-have after cleanser and moisturizer. That's how important it is to me. Though I've found my HG sunblock, the curiosity in me still sway me to try other brands. One brand I tried is the Sunplay sunblock which is locally available at Watsons. Can it be my new HG sunblock?

Sunplay Powdery White Sunblock Lotion
    • High and effective protection against UVA nad UVB
    • Japan "Watery Liquid" formulation is non-greasy, light and smooth on skin
    • Japan whitening formulation, regular use helps lighten dark spots and enhance skin fairness
    • Vitamin C and E to promote skin health and prevent premature aging
    • water-proof
    • non-comedogenic (does not clog pore)
    • Suitable for daily use on face and body
My say:
Performance: 3/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 4/5 stars

This will not replace my current HG sunblock. I've brought this with me on my Bohol trip. Sad to say, this is not good for the high-sun trip. I did not feel that I was well protected enough. Good thing I brought 3 (including this) sunblocks with me at that time. I'll review the two soon :) This is a good sunblock to use if you will not be out in the sun the whole day. I've been using this for two-months prior to my Bohol trip. It did help in giving me sun protection. But then I was at work the whole day confine in my little cubicle. Definitely this not something you want to bring if you'll be under the sun the whole time. I noticed that my skin got one or two shade darker. Compare to my Bora trip last year, I did not get dark at all. Perhaps my skin got one shade darker but nobody noticed it. Unlike on this trip, people knew then that I went to the beach. It also does leave a white cast after using it. It also makes my skin look greasy even though its watery and thin in texture. It says that it can be a make up base, but not to me :( Good thing I didn't broke out nor gave me any allergies :) I cannot really attest to its whitening properties because I've been using a whitening cream at that time. Perhaps it did help since I got lighter skin fast :) The packaging do remind me of Biore sunblock. This is really small which really fits in my little purse. I bought this over at Watsons for Php349. There is no way for me to buy this. I am now skeptical to try the other variant of Sunplay available at Watsons. However, I'm currently using one from Missha. Of course, I'll review it to you guys soon.

Have a nice day :)
