Sunblock List – Watsons Summer Essentials

There’s technically 2 seasons in the Philippines.  Rainy and Summer season.  I say, either way, it’s summer all year round!  But of course the much awaited summer break, long weekends and holidays during summer gives us more reason to celebrate!  Road trips, beach escapades, hiking for the adventurous, beach and summer sports for the athletic and just to unwind and relax for those who want to get away from the hectic life.

Sun-worshippers!  Are you ready for this summer?

Before heading out to enjoy the summer festivities, drop by any Watsons branch first for your summer essentials!  Almost everything you need for summer is here!

Nivea Sun Sunblock Spray

Cheryl of littlerunningteacher.com

- invisible cooling mist

- water resistant

- SPF 50 and UVB protection

- non-greasy

- quick absoption

- works from all angles without repeated pumping

Contains UVA & UVB filters which prevent harmful rays from penetrating your skin and causing damage.

I have tried this baby and it works wonders!  It’s perfect to carry with you while on the beach to re-apply sunblock!  Why?  It’s very easy to use.  Me and the WhenInManila.com team recently went surfing in Zambales and I brought this tool.

Everyone loved it because it was very easy to apply.  Just spray it and you’re good to go.

Quick application – especially if you’re in a rush to surf!

Belo SunExpert

Kojie San Sunblock

- SPF 50

- PA+++

It doesn’t indicate anti-sweat or water resistant though so I think this is best when you’re just strolling down the beach or every-day protection, or when you’re traveling

- good for dry skin as it is very moisturizing and gets oily feel after a while (it’s good for my dry legs)

Take your pick!  Mine works if I combine a few of these.  One for daily, then for the beach, then for retouch etc…
