Review: Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50

While tromping around in sunny Greece, I was a good girl and made sure that me and the hubs were well protected from the harmful rays of the suns. I had brought along a new bottle of Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk, and after two weeks of daily use, I think it's time to jolly well review it.

I had tried Sunplay Clear Water SPF50 before, and had liked it. So when Sunplay came out with this one, I had decided to give it a whirl too.

The texture is light and milky/watery, similar to its sister product. It applies very easily and smooth, and it dries down quickly into a clear finish which is just slightly glowy. It is non-greasy, as it claims, and being water resistant, it's long-lasting.

I used this sunscreen, which boasts of SPF50 PA+++, on my face and body, and I believe it does work to a certain extent. I was certainly not as tan as I had imagined I would be. Even though we were in the hot hot sun a lot.

However, this sunscreen also boasts of being hydrating, and I think this is where it doesn't quite work for a combi/oily girl like me. The glow upon initial application soon turns into shiny. And not in a glowy-shiny way. Oily-shiny, more like.

Also, it might have been quite a few other factors, but I do believe it might have contributed to causing a few tiny bumps on my face especially around my forehead.

So there goes that. I'll keep it around to continue using it on my body, but I don't think it'll be going anywhere near my face now.

Priced at less than RM30 for a 50ml bottle, it's definitely a reasonable buy, especially if you're a drier girl. But unfortunately for me, this isn't really a keeper.

the moisture range is definitely more for drier skins. Like mine! I'm quite contented with the gel version but I'm not too sure of its sun-blocking properties :-/

This one sounds great for drier skin girls like me! :D

Connie: Glad the moisture range worked out for you! =)

Jenn: Cheerful coincidence! =P But SPF130!

Prettybeautiful: Eeek.. Guess not.
