If you're going to spend all day on the beach or hiking - and you're like me and hate reapplying sunblock this is the friend you want on your side. NOTHING gets through it. So far the times I've used it I didn't even break a tan let alone get burnt and I've used it to:
- Run around all day on the beach and snorkle in the sea on a team-building sort of obstacle course
- Go see dolphins and whales on a boat under the scorching sun in the middle of the ocean for about 5 hours
- Go on a hike under the blazing sun where I had to mop sweat up constantly.
My only problems with it is that if I use it on my face I break out and that it's really quite expensive at RM150 (I think) for a 100ml bottle. Bear in mind though that I break out if I use ANYTHING but powder sunblock (which will never stand up to the above activities) and that on days like that, breakouts are better than permanent sun damage. It's a tough call though. *sighs*
I received this from Shiseido a really long time ago to test out but since I can't use it daily it's taken me awhile to review it. Chances are though I'll repurchase this - especially since I've seen it going at a discount in Bonjour, Hong Kong. ;)
