So I’ve been using the Belo Tinted Sunscreen for a while been trying it INDOORS and OUTDOORS plus I tried to make it as a primer as the base for my makeup. I wear makeup literally from Mondays-Saturdays when I am on hospital duty (It’s like required apparently).
On weekdays when I see my friends, I just go out with no-make up look because its like ample time for my skin to rest. They say you have to always look your best when you go out, you may never know that you may meet “the one”, I’m like too lazy and If he is the one, he’ll accept and love me for who I am. Beauty is skin-deep. But yeah, physical does come first- atleast be presentable. Lately I’ve been going out with a bare face and using either Belo Tinted Suncreen or Belo BB Cream.
So what caught my eye to try this product it’s because mainly 2 things, I really need sunblock or sunscreen- it has been my essential go to beauty product because I really need to protect my skin to prevent the spots on my face to go way darker and ayoko umitim (I used to be so dark- I am not against being dark, I love being morena but the tone that I have achieved today was all hard work. Maybe I am more hiyang here in the Philippines.Growing up in the middle east bilad sa araw really made me look so dark- looking at my old photos plus I used to take swimming lessons so that adds it up).Then it is endorsed by no other than Anne Curtis herself.- I am like a fan and see how influential she is.
I’ve been to Mercury at Trinoma – SOLD OUT. Then crossed over at SM North the first 2 branches were sold out also and luckily there were few stocks left at the block so I was able to purchase one before Belo SunExpert sent me their products for review.
So Belo Tinted suncreen has, tone adapt technology for medium t0 deep tone (evens out skin tone, conceals fine wrinkles, lines and other imperfections) with SPF 50 PA ++++ (protection from harmful UV rays), Cell protect (defense against premature skin aging). It’s Paraben-free, Non comedogenic, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested.
How do you use the product: https://www.facebook.com/krishgeek/videos/vb.1499984389/10209115911243809/?type=3&theater
- I prefer to shake it first.
- Then apply small amounts with the use of your fingertips, different areas on your face.
- Then spread evenly. So like 15 seconds atleast.
Upon applying this, doesn’t really make your face look so white (since its color brown)- just fine, smooth and it is light on the skin. My friend said it just made my face lighter and has that vibrant glow. Though I’ve noticed throughout the day like after 3-4 hours after application it kinda has a sticky and oily feeling. Obviously it’s SPF 50, so it has to be reapplied like every hour if you’re exposed under extreme heat. If it stays long and no reapplication, it becomes oily- that’s what I mean.
One time, while I was at the outdoors – I’ve reapplied the sunscreen a number of times, at the end of the day, I kinda had pimples maybe because of the outdoor dirt perhaps. I profusely sweat a lot, so one time while patting my face with a facial tissue to removed the sweat, obviously there would be traces of the sunscreen.
Indoors, I tried it as a base or primer for my makeup, it was all good for an 8 hour lecture then after that it became sticky and oily. Good timing because that’s my dismissal time so expect to look really haggard. No reapplication since its under layers of makeup. The sunscreen can be used as an instant perfecting coverage for your foundation and powder. For me I apply the sunscreen first, then concealer then foundation and to top it with sunpowder.
For P495, It is available at the beauty section of Mercury and Watsons. I would rate this product 3.5/5 –good for indoors and outdoors plus very multi functional not only as a sunscreen, it can be as a primer too. Very effortless for an everyday habit and you why not have both, a product that covers beauty and protection!
