Texture & Scent:


True to its claim, this sunblock is really non-oily and shiny, something i wished my HG Loreal Sunblock would be! This sunblock is rather runny, so it spread unto your skin smoothly! The scent of this sunblock reminds me of:


The UHU glue!! XD

It's pretty mild though, so don't worry about getting high!! hahaha!! XD

Packaging:


This sunblock comes in a shaker bottle with a twist off cap! I love how tapered the opening is so you have great control over how much product you wanna dispense:



Time Test:
I felt that this sunblock lasted about 6 hours on me before it wears off. But like all sunblocks, do reapply every 3-4 hours if you're under the sun! :)

Price & Availability:
This sunblock is priced at RM24.90 (approx. US$6.90) and it's almost always on sale! :) This is available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets.

Usage:
I use this primarily as a sunblock. Methinks that this will make a wonderful makeup base too, since it does give a smooth matte feel to your skin! :D


My $0.02:

I had high hopes for this sunblock as i've read soooo many great reviews about this! Whilst i love how smooth and matte this goes on, i'm almost heartbroken to report that this broke me out (probably due to the Alcohol in it!)! An old photo that shows those bumps:



I gave it 3 tries, and it never failed to give me those bumps those 3 times, so into the bin this goes :(

Do not be discouraged by my review though, i've heard many wonderful things about this one! Since this is so cheap, there's no harm trying! :D

  2. Yeah Biore's sunblocks are great if not for the fact that they have high content of alcohols, especially the gel type in a bluish-green bottle.

    Better whip out the Mint Julep mask now!

  3. nicki: that's great!! You're one of those lucky ones who can use this product!! :D

    don't think you'll like the Loreal one then, since that one gives a shiny and a little sticky feel compared to this biore one!! hehehe!!

    thank you for the kind words!! I'll try to do a FOTD soon... i'm lazy!! hahaha!! :P

  5. Does it have a powdery feel after you apply it? Anyway, the one sunblock which really worked for my oily skin is from Nuskin. Comes in oily skin and dry skin formula.

  6. Hmmm... i think it does give a slight powder feel when you apply it!

    icic... i've heard great things about NuSkin, but never tried their products before! I love my Lancome too much! hahaha!! :P

  12. Hey girl, this is my one true love when it comes to sun protection.

    Tried Garnier n Loreal, they succeeded in making my face oily. So this is my HG for now.

    I recently blogged about this.
