Sun protect and stay young with BELO's SunExpert Line!

Friday, March 28, 2014

Going to the beach this weekend or anytime soon? Don't forget to bring sun protection that will not only keep your skin protected from the harsh UV Rays, but will keep your skin looking young too!

I have always liked Belo's skin care products. I think they work and they smell really good. Their fragrance don't smell cheap and most importantly, are totally not sticky at all! You know that their products are made for our hot and humid climate!

Belo Sun Expert Sun Protection Line (L-R)
A lot of us women spend so much money on anti-aging products, when the problem is staring us right in the face: the sun. The sun can cause photoaging which is a medical term which refers to a person's aging prematurely secondary to sun exposure. It is characterized by fine lines, crepe-like skin (eeew!), some brownish mottling, and waxy skin that is rough to the touch.

Special thanks to Sampleroom and BELO for sending me these goodies! I can't wait to use these this summer!

Yes yes, I know -basking in the sun, feeling the sun on your face and the wind cooling your skn can be comforting, but the sun is damaging your skin causing you to age prematurely. I am guilty of this too. I only put sun protection when I am at the beach because I feel that I don't really need it since I'll only have minimal exposure like walking from the mall to my car, or to buy coffee at Starbucks. But in truth, these 5 minute walks are already causing damage to our skin!


Transparent Mist SPF 50 100ml, PhP 449.75
I am loving the yellow-themed packaging because it looks so summer! I just love sunblocks that I am confident that it works. Yes, I often doubt sunblocks because it's something that is something to be taken seriously. UV Rays and sunburns are nasty, and since my sunburn experience in 2008, I vowed that I will never go tanning without sunblock ever again.



Comes in a very convenient 100ml bottle that is very economical. The product spreads easily on your skin so you don't need a whole lot of product.


It has a very light and runny consistency, and not at all thick like most mists I have tried in the past. It's clear and it doesn't set shiny so you won't look oily.


It gives a sheen finish, and won't leave you looking all white like most sunblock lotions.



HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:

PROS
  • Broad-spectrum protection against UV Rays!
  • Loaded with anti-aging ingredients.
  • Stay young while you tan!
  • Spray bottle makes it easier to apply on hard to reach areas.
  • Fast absorbing!
  • Gives the skin a beautiful glow after application.
  • Moisturizing!
  • Immediate effectivity (no more waiting time!)
  • Non-sticky.
  • Very lightweight.
  • Water resistant.
  • Has a mild cooling effect.

  • Small bottle makes it easy to bring.
  • Spray bottle makes it less messy to apply!
  • Very mild fragrance.
  • Light enough to use everyday!

NEUTRAL

CONS
  • N/A

Now let's move on to the body lotion sunblock. This one is more conventional lotion type sunblock but is loaded with Cell Protect® Technology that strengthens the skin’s defense system, maintaining healthy skin while preventing accelerated premature skin aging.

SPF30 is enough protection, but extra insurance is always welcome. I put on at least SPF50 to be safe.

Body Shield SPF 60 100ml, PhP 459.75
 Glides on the skin like regular lotion, and is not very creamy at all. Compared to other sunblocks, this one is vey light weight and it gets absorbed by the skin fast!


Very handy and the tube is thin so it's easy to squeeze.


I love the consistency! It's creamy enough to hold its texture so that you can spread it easily without product dripping all over the place.


It dries very clear, no white residue! It's not at all sticky or heavy on the skin as well.

MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★★

It's seldom that we find sunblocks that is safe to use for the face, and thank goodness BELO finally came out with one. Most sunblock lotions are multi-purpose for face and body, but I like putting products only that are specific to face use. Some ingredients may be too harsh for the face.


Face Cover 50ml, PhP 329.75
This 50ml bottle will last longer as compared to the ones for the body because you don't need a whole lot to put on your face.


This one is quite handy as well. And did I mention that I love the packaging? Ok, I'm biased, one of my favorite colors is yellow.


Has a consistency of facial moisturizer so it's very easy to spread on  your face without over pulling the skin.


It dries clear and fast! I really don't like sunblock that leaves you looking all white and gray. This one has got to be my most favorite from the line. I just love skin care.



HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:

PROS
  • Provides broad-spectrum protection against UV Rays.
  • Easily available.
  • With Cell Protect® Technology that strengthens the skin’s defense system, maintaining healthy skin while preventing accelerated premature skin aging.
  • Non-sticky and very lightweight!

  • Non need to reapply often.
  • Water resistant.
  • Won't clog the pores!
  • Very mild fragrance.
  • Paraben-free.
  • Immediate effectivity (no waiting time)
  • Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist tested.
  • Affordable! Very affordable for a sunblock for the face.
  • Acts like a moisturizer.
  • Light enough to use everyday!
