Sunblocks with a Twist

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I remember when it just used to be a choice between regular sunblock and waterproof sunblock. Then you choose your preferred SPF: 25, 30, and 45 (this was even rare back then). I remember, it was just Coppertone.

Now, with today's drastic climate change where the sun is hotter compared to 10 or 15 years ago, cosmetic companies have come out with a wide variety of sunblocks that caters to different outdoor activities, and according to your preferred skin treatment!

  2. The ocean potion face sunblock looks interesting. Sunblock always gets stingy on my eyes when I use it (even the ones for the face) I hope this one does not do the same for me :)

  7. is the snoe sunblock applicable on the face? and is the nivea cooling mist available in any supermarket in the Philippines? TIA :)

    1. The Snoe sunblock has fragrance so it's best to do a patch test first behind the ear and allow 5-10 minutes to see if you have any reactions :) Some people use it for the face though. Yes, Nivea is available in supermarkets in Manila, Watsons and Landmark ♥
