I've been using this for years and I haven't found a sunscreen that can top it. I use it daily and it doesn't break me out despite having a pretty heavy formula. It does make my skin look a little oily after applying but I just apply some loose powder to mattify my face right after. Also, it leaves your skin a little whiter than usual, which might be a deal breaker for some. For me however, it's perfect. This, along with my Innisfree powder, are the only things I need to make my face presentable on a daily basis. Btw, do apply with dry skin. When it mixes with water, it becomes difficult to apply and will leave white streaks.5 months ago
This sunscreen is definitely not budget friendly but you get what you pay for! The small size makes it perfect for traveling. It has a great consistency and doesn't leave a white cast on your face so you can rub it on gently without worrying about looking like a ghost. This works like a dream together with my COSRX Skin Returning Emulsion in keeping my face matte and protected in the mornings. I've never had any skin reactions to this even when I' have a hormonal acne attack. Also a plus is that it's supposed to protect your from indoor light as well like your computer monitor.9 months ago
I have acne-prone, scar-prone combination skin, oily along the T-zone and dry everywhere else. Because this mineral moisturizer uses Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, you don't have to wait for 20 minutes before going out which is a plus if you're running late for work or school. The white cast is almost undetectable since it's so spreadable. But it does make your skin 1 shade lighter which is absolutely annoys me (I am in the shade NC30). But if you want that instant gluta effect, this sunscreen's got you covered. The Titanium Dioxide tends to mattify your face so if you have dry or combination skin, you might end up having white dry patches of skin after lunch, nothing that reapplying your moisturizer won't remedy. But if you're oily, this is another good reason to buy it. I used this in combination with a Vitamin C and alpha arbutin serum to prevent my acne scars from turning brown which totally worked! If you're using retinoic acid, retinol, salicylic, lactic, glycolic and other exfoliating acids, hydroquinone and other whitening products, WEARING SUNSCREEN IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. It's also made by a Filipino company and their formula's quality and packaging is impeccable! This is now part of my daily beauty arsenal until my schedule allows me to switch over to a chemical sunscreen. Did I mention that it also didn't break me out?!about 1 year ago
It is a great sunblock. It has the typical sunblock texture - thick, creamy, and smooth. It is also like any sunblock, takes long to be absorbed by the skin. I recommend that if you use this, do not put any make up as your foundation would only slide off of your face. Your face would look shiney when using this so you might wanna powder it or use an oil blotter.over 1 year ago
Armada sunscreens are great for people with sensitive skin because it provides great SPF coverage without the breakouts and heaviness. This product, especially at the higher SPF spectrum, can leave a white cast on the face which can be both a good or bad thing. I mistakenly bought this product at 30g because my old stock was almost empty. This size would last only around a month or so. It's definitely more cost-effective to buy the larger sizes.over 1 year ago
Aramada Face Cover 45 is the perfect UV protection for those with sensitive and combination to oily skin. It is light and doesn't leave the oily, greasy feel that other sunblock brands do. I usually get break outs when I use face sunblocks all the time. But with Armada Face Cover 45, there has been no zits! There are other sunblock product items in the market that offers the same or higher level of UV protection, and also works for sensitive skin. But those products usually leave a heavy, greasy feel on the face. But with Armada, the product feels light and non-greasy. It's a bit pricey but it's worth every cent.almost 2 years ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
