Blended out...

This sunblock lotion was very watery, easy to blend out and doesn't feel sticky at all.
It does make face look abit pale(white) at first, but once the lotion absorbed into the skin.. it doesn't have any white cast or any color different then my original skin tone. And it give a nice moisturizing glow on my skin. Doen't cause me any break-out.
Sometimes, when I applied too much(well, there will not be "too much" when it come to sunblock, lolx), it does feel abit oily. I just lightly dap it off with tissue. And it won't feel any different when I apply primer/foundation after the sunblock lotion.
Even though this is a super waterproof formula, it doesn't feel tight or dry.
I've tried some waterproof sunblock lotion before and it just make my face feel dry and tight after I removed my makeup at the end of the day  :(
Do keep in mind that this might feel abit "oily" in textures if you have applied thick moisturizer or cream.

  • This UV body mist spray was pretty light in texture and non sticky.
  • when I first spray it on my arm, it feel abit wet, oily and very cooling. Once it absorbed into the skin, it won't feel that oily and wet anymore.
    [The oily feel wasn't too strong, cos it feel like natural skin texture]
  • This UV body Mist abosbed really fast
  • The finishing was pretty nice, give my skin a pretty healthy glow and suprising that it was pretty moisturizing too.
  • The scent was sweet and citrus-y and kinda refreshing.
    (Peapea like it, lolx)
I didn't use ths on my face (I use this as body sunblock)... cos the liquid does feel oily in texture.. so I'm not risking it on my face(lolx)

Overall for both.... the sunblocking power was pretty decent :
I did not visit any park or beach lately... so I cannot say whether it will work great on long exposure under the sunny hot sun in Singapore.
So for normal morning to night outing in the city (shopping indoor + outdoor).. plus my normal foundation ontop of the sunblock.... I did not experience any sunburn nor skin darkening.
