THE VERDICT:

Mary Schmich, in her commencement speech, said: "If I could offer you one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it." Are you familiar with this speech? If not, Google it-it's one of my favorite pick-me-uppers along with Desiderata and The Optimist's Creed. :D

Sunscreen may connote a different meaning in her speech, but in reality, it is really one of your best defenses against a bevy of sun- related diseases (not to mention medicine and hospital bills) so just like Schimch, one of the best beauty tips I can give you is to just slather on that goddamn sunscreen. Now don't think that on a cloudy day, you're safe from UV ray invasion-as long as the sun is there, there is always the risk of burning and damaging your skin.

VMV Hypoallergenics is one of the trusted sunscreen brands locally and here are two of their best- sellers that I think you should check out if you want to get serious with the sunscreen habit!

VMV HYPOALLERGENICS ARMADA SUNSCREEN SPORT 70 AND MOISTURISING PROTECTIVE LIP BALM 60+ IN ACTION


Oh, I remember the time when Armada's consistency was too thick, heavy, and yielded a weird bluish cast. It's a good thing that they decided to reformulate it, and I'm loving the new version now! Sport 70's consistency is thick yet watery and it rubs in quickly onto the skin. It may feel a lil' heavy if you put on too much, so just take only what you need, but make sure every part of your body is covered. It's also pretty moisturizing that I skip regular lotion when I'm using this product, thus I get to save more time. I used this product on the beach too and it didn't give me that sticky feeling when I was perspiring heavily. I believe it's not only great for outdoor use, but for indoor use also and for those who dislike reapplying sunblock often during the day because formula is water resistant. It's pricey though, but it's your best bet if you have sensitive skin because VMV's products are guaranteed hypoallergenic. :) This product has a counterpart intended for the face, just in case you're wondering. I know that this product is meant for the face and body, but I just find it a lil' heavy for facial use so I would recommend the 'for face' version if you're going to ask me.


Next, we have the lip balm. Love that the SPF content is very high- it's the highest I've seen ever in a lip balm. Great for those who are predisposed to lip darkening after sun exposure. It's emollient and a little goes a long way, and its glossy finish makes it great as a topper for lipstick or lip tint-it's just like lip gloss, but a whole lot better because of the spf! It's a lil' thick though so don't go crazy with application! :)

Sunscreen, I believe, is an investment because it's not just a beauty product-it's your skin's 'insurance' so if there's something that I think you should splurge on, it should be this along with great skin care! :D

6 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I wanted to try this brand of sunscreen for last summer. Alas, I couldn't get a hold of it (was shopping way into the summer months lol). Thanks for the review! :)

  2. One of the things I wish I knew sooner is how important it is to wear sunscreen. Back then I thought sunscreen is just for vanity. I only realized how important it is when I started reading beauty blogs and when my dermatologist stressed the need to wear it. Now I can never leave how without applying at least SPF 30.

  6. Sunscreen is really a must-have for me, 'coz I'm not getting any younger, I should have started using it much earlier:( I've read that even "wolverine" star Hugh Jackman had skin cancerous growths, so sad. Be protected gurls! Will try the VMV lip balm soon! excited!
