Texture & Scent:

This sunblock does live up to it's non sticky, non greasy claim (probably due to the Alcohol Denat in it!)! it goes on smoothly without the sickening sticky feeling some sunblocks give! It does not leave a whitish cast behind too! It has a rather strong, but pleasant perfumy scent.


This sunblock comes in a squeeze tube with a flip top cap, which is alright for me! :)

Time Test:
It takes under a minute for this sunblock to be absorbed fully. Like all sunblocks this needs to be reapplied every 3-4 hours for maximum protection!

Price & Availability:
This sunblock goes for RM32.90, which is cheap for what it delivers. This sunblock is available at all Loreal counters at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :)

I kept this in my office drawer to use during my lunch break (when i have to walk rather far to the office car park under the sun!!). It's great for protecting your arms while driving too!

My $0.02:

This sunblock really exceeded my expectations! It's not sticky or greasy, and it protects against those nasty UV rays well! My only wish is for Loreal to release a SPF50 and above one, then i am sold! :)

In a Nutshell:

One of the best body sunblocks i've came across!! :)

Likes: Protects well, not sticky / greasy, no whitish cast, easily available
Gripes: Contains alcohol denat! Not really a gripe, but a SPF50 and above version would be great!!

Rating: ! 4 Stars! Me Likey!
