Getting armed with ARMADA

It’s getting hotter and hotter these days. Summer would have been fun if you can enjoy being exposed in the sun without fear of getting badly toasted. If it’s advisable to wear sunscreen during cooler days, it’s inadvisable not to wear sunblock during summer. As  they say, the best armor to shield our skin from the sun’s harmful rays is one good trusty sunblock. That’s what got me to buy ARMADA Face and Body Shield 60, by VMV Hypoallergenics.

I used to buy whatever sunblock is available at department stores. But last week, before I was scheduled to fly to Davao City, I checked out the 3-day sale at SM Makati  and decided to pick up a sunblock that I’ve been itching to try for quite some time now.

I’ve been using some of VMV products on an on-and-off basis. From their cosmetics to soaps, to toners–except their sunblock. But since I saw that almost all of their products have a 10-percent discount that day, I immediately took one and bought one sunblock in anticipation of the fieldwork I’m going to do when I travel down south.

I chose this over ARMADA Sport 70 which is ideal for those who are in extreme outdoor conditions, because it doubles as protection against skin darkening and melasma. There’s another one ARMADA Face Cover 30. Depends on one’s needs but my gut is telling me to go for my personal choice. Anyway, one popular fashion and lifestyle mag had rave reviews on ARMADA sunblock, hailing it as one of the best sunblock in the market. Their sunblocks are safe even for kids.

And I wasn’t mistaken. I’m not sure if the other ARMADA sunscreen products are as lightweight as the one I am using now. I hate sunblocks that gives off a sticky feel. It has no fragrance either and I love the fact that it is easily absorbed by my skin. Putting on make up is also much easier. 🙂
