What do we love about homegrown label VMV? They’re the only beauty brand with a rating system that grades a product’s safety based on the number of allergens it does NOT contain. In fact, VMV’s skincare and makeup are free of most (if not ALL) 76 allergens as listed by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group + European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies. From its sunscreens to its concealers, VMV’s range is free of fragrance, dye, phthalate, paraben, preservatives, coca-surfactant, SLES, and SLS. All products are formulated to be non-comedogenic, non-drying, pH-adjusted, and suitable for all skin types. What’s NOT to love?
I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I have to say, I'm absolutely LOVING IT! I have ridiculously sensitive skin and almost every sunscreen I have tried have broken me out. The latest one was the Celeteque Suncare Facial Moisturizer and after using it for one full day, a lot of small bumps appeared all over my face especially on my cheeks. It was the only new product I added to my routine at the time so I'm pretty sure that caused the breakout. The Armada Face Cover 30 DID NOT break me out which to me, is a very huge achievement! Yay! I finally found my new sun protection bff! Will definitely repurchase the bigger one after I finish my tube :)3 months ago
I have sensitive skin so I bought the 30g tube to try it out. So far, I love it. It’s light and you can hardly notice when you apply—and I tend to apply liberally (about the size of two peas). I was worried at first because my face was quite oily, but after the 20 minute wait, my face looked normal. My only peeve is that it’s only SPF 30 and I would need to reapply several times through out the day, and that it feels flimsy that I feel like I have to reapply after workout. I am hoping to try other sunscreen products by VMV to compare, but I’m still quite glad that I found this one.3 months ago
I have sensitive skin so I had to ditch my old sunscreen for this new one, as suggested by my dermatologist. It was a good switch. This product is lightweight on my skin and doesn't cause me to break out. It's a bit pricier than my old sunscreen but at least it's not irritating.7 months ago
I love this because it's a good investment. A little goes a long way, but I think it's more suited for those with dry skin. If you're oily this might not work for you. I love that it contains no alcohol, it's perfect for days when you are just at the office, not so much outdoors. I used to use sunscreens with alcohol and they dried my skin so badly so I'm glad I found this instead.9 months ago
My first purchase from VMV was Armada Face Cover 30. This was recommended by a former officemate and some colleagues while I was in the hunt for a lightweight, non-greasy, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free sunblock due to my oily, sensitive skin. I used to buy Olay's face cream products but after my recent visit to the derma, she told me to stop using it as it may be one of the reasons I'm breaking out (never got pimples for years) since my skin got extra sensitive, plus, it only contains SPF15 which I know isn't enough. I've only been using Armada 30 for 2weeks and so far, so good! It's definitely the one I'm looking for! Initially hesitant because of the hefty price but wouldn't mind now as a little goes a long way and so far, no pimples from using it. I would definitely invest in better skincare products from now on (thinking of VMV).11 months ago
I have acne prone skin and tend to breakout easily when trying products. I read good reviews about Armada so I decided to give it a try. It's lightweight and the think texture doesn't give a sticky feeling even when I perspire, the best part I love about it is that doesn't break me out. The product also dries quickly and is very handy. I also use this under makeup and I think it helps prevent oil on my oily-combination skin. I certainly love Armada Face Cover!about 1 year ago
