Yup, you read that right! As a lady who’s always on-the-go like myself, I’m always on the lookout for products that can help keep my skin protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays & pollution. I must admit, I miss out on a lot of activities especially with my friends and family just because I don’t want to be out in the sun and get dust particles all over my skin — yikes! Because I’m such a fan of Korean skin care, I am quite aware that constant exposure to the sun’s UV rays are a big no no for the skin’s natural moisture barrier. But, what’s a girl to do… I can’t hide in the shade forever, right? I’m sure there are also a lot of you with the same problem — exposed to the harmful UV rays and pollution because we’re constantly being immersed in different activities like driving or commuting to and from work, hanging out with the barkada, etc.
Fret not! Vaseline now offers advanced protection against the damaging effects of these environmental aggressors — say hello to the NEW Vaseline Healthy White Sun + Pollution Protection.
It contains Glycerin, a natural hydrating substance that provides moisturization, which is crucial for your skin’s natural healthy barrier; Niacinamide which is important for maintaining fair and radiant skin; petroleum jelly which does not only trap moisture, but also acts as a protective barrier from any skin damaging matter; and vitamin E extract, an antioxidant that plays a major role in the anti-aging process to keep your skin youthful-looking.
I’m sure everyone has this question mark over their head — “OK COOL, BUT IS IT STICKY THO?” –Happy to announce that the answer is NOT STICKY AT ALL!!! I have personally been using this for 4 days now. It has a very mild scent and the texture is a perfect ratio of creamy and watery — very thin when applied and absorbs quickly. I normally put on 2 layers (because I’m paranoid) and I have no issues with stickiness. Also, it finishes off clear so it won’t give you a weird white cast but oddly, it does brighten up the skin tone a bit (nothing dramatic).
We all know that prolonged and excessive exposure to the sun can lead to skin darkening, aging, and even cancer. Pollutants, on the other hand, can trigger oxidation and damage to skin cells. As I always say, prevention is better than cure.
Silaw sa sun but protected, lol! This product claims to nourish your skin with SPF 24 PA++, to protect it from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, and PPF, or Pollution Protection Formula, to protect it by neutralizing and blocking pollution. (*when used as part of your daily routine).
PS: I haven’t tried this on my neck but I think the texture is light-weight enough to do the job. However, I recommend using something with higher SPF for the face and neck since the face’s texture is thinner and more sensitive. I use SPF50+ bb creams or cc cushions 🙂
The recommendation is that it is to be used twice a day for best results! Here are some key reminders when using this product:
a. Do not stay long in the sun even while using a product with sunscreen.
b. Store product away from sunlight.
c. In the unlikely event of skin irritation, stop using and consult a doctor immediately.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Let’s inspire other women to be worry free and city-ready!
