I’m guilty of this because I’m not fond of using sunscreen on my face. But I still apply it from time to time, especially if I’m going out. If you will ask my Dermatologist what do you need to take care of your skin, she will advise you to cleanse, tone, and apply sunscreen. Yes, even you are just at home, as long as there are sun rays going in your house, you need to apply sunscreen.
Why is it Important to Apply Sunscreen on Our Face?
If you think that sunscreen or sunblock is only to protect your skin from sunburn, then you are definitely wrong. There are so many reasons why we need to apply sunscreen, especially on our face.
1. To shield against harmful UVB and UVA rays
2. To combat sunburn
3. To avoid skin cancer.
4. To slow down aging and wrinkles.
5. To prevent discolorations or brown spots
6. To prevent blotchiness
These are just a few reasons why you need to use sunscreen on your face. A lot of us don’t want to apply sunscreen because it is sticky, greasy, it leaves a white cast and the smell is not good. I’ve tried a lot of sunscreen in the past and so far I'm still looking for a good sunscreen. A few months ago I’ve bought Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum SPF35 PA+++, it is not sticky, beige in color so it blends on my skin but I don’t like the smell.
Petal Velvet Sunaway Sunscreen Kit
So I was glad when Althea Korea sent me this Petal Velvet Sunaway Sunscreen Kit. Yey, Althea Korea has a new product again. I received Petal Velvet Sunaway, 3 pieces of Petal Velvet Powders in #0 (White), #23 (Beige) and Pink Lavender, and Althea Hologram Pouch. I’m using the Petal Velvet Powder #0 since last year, it is one of my Althea Korea Haul that I love.
Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++
But for now, let me introduce to you the Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++. It is a lightweight, velvety and invisible sunscreen that will shield you from harmful sunrays. This sunscreen is made of natural ingredients and has microparticles that will give your face a smooth velvet finish. It does not only protect you from UV light but it also controls sebum and keep your skin hydrated all day. This sunscreen is for all skin types so even you have sensitive skin, you can use this.
Damask Rose Extract - hydrate and soothe irritations, leaving the skin feeling healthy.
Geranium oil - gives the skin a radiant boost and heals
How to Use Petal Velvet Sunaway
1. Shake the bottle well.
2. Apply an even layer on your face and allow to absorb into the skin before going out. The general rule is, apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out into the sun.
I’ve been using this sunscreen for a week now and so far I’m satisfied, for the very first time may nagustuhan din ako na sunscreen. Why?
1. It is SPF50+ PA++++ so it is a long-wearing sunscreen.
2. It is so easy to use and apply.
3. Even the sunscreen is white, it blends well on my skin. It does not leave a white cast.
4. It has no irritating smell.
5. It is not sticky and not greasy.
6. I like the velvet finish look.
Since last week, every morning I only use cleanser, toner, and Petal Velvet Sunaway. Yes, I stopped using my facial cream and replaced it with sunscreen so I can check if the product really works. After few days of using it, my husband asked me “kung ano daw nilagay ko sa face ko kasi parang fresh daw”. I don’t know kung binobola lang ako ni hubby but because of that, sold na ko sa sunscreen na ito.
If you don’t like to apply too much on your face, this Petal Velvet Sunaway is a good replacement for your cream. But since I have a facial cream, sayang naman kung hindi ko gamitin so my morning routine is, cleanser, toner, cream, and sunscreen. If I’m going out, I will apply powder for a perfect finish.
If you are looking for sunscreen, you can try Petal Velvet Sunaway. The downside of this sunscreen is you need to shake it before using it so you can get the right consistency and you need to order this online. Petal Velvet Sunaway 55ml for P480 at Althea Korea.
