The Perfect Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin!

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.

VMV HYPOALLERGENICS' Armada Face Cover 45 (30g) is a great buy. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth every peso. The texture is really creamy but it blends well with my skin. You have to shake really well, though. There is no weird smell which is a plus in my book. You do need to shake it before use though. Overall, I love it and will definitely buy it again, price tag and all! :D

Good face sunscreen

This sunscreen spreads easily, non-sticky and it dries quickly. it doesn't leave a white cast on my skin. It protects your face from not only UVA and UVB rays but also other types of damaging lights. You can use this as your daily face sun protection. It's good for outdoor activities and swimming too.It holds pretty good even after an outdoor exercise. But it's a bit on the pricey side if you compare it with the Nivea and L'Oreal sunscreens.

perfect balanace between protection factor and consistency/weight

the perfect balance between high uv protection and consistency. the face cover 30 is super lightweight but may leave you wanting a higher sun protection factor. the face shield 60 offers opaque high spf but may be a bit heavy for oily skin. this is just right, the golidilocks of armada.

great as a base on my face

i love the feel when applied to my face. i use this as base before applying foundation and make-up. it prevents flakes plus it adds sunscreen protection also. great for everyday wear! it also quickly absorbs on my face. i'm also glad that it doesn't have a very strong scent.

I have been using this face sunscreen for the longest time and I must say that it is really an amazing product. Most sunblocks with more than SPF25 in them clogs my pores and makes my skin break out badly. But this little guy over here did not do that. It sinks into the skin right away and goes well even under make up.

Liquid Gold.

This is one of those products that you will hear so much hype about online and in store, but you will never truly understand nor appreciate how true they all are until you take a leap of faith and buy a bottle for yourself. I recently just purchased this, as I have been eyeing the Armada line for the longest time now, and can I tell you: this stuff is liquid gold. It not only protects your face from the UVA/UVB tag-team of El Nino, but it also turns your face MATTE upon application. My face was like this smooth canvass as soon as my skin absorbed this product. I didn't even want to put makeup on anymore. I really love this, and I am fully converted when it comes to the award-winning effectiveness of the Armada line. <3

Best Mattifying Sunscreen for Oily Skin!!!

I have oily skin & of all the VMV Armada Line this is my favourite especially with the extreme heat because it is the most mattifying and acts like a primer comparing to other Armadas. Also much more compatible when I wear makeup that in my experience from other VMV Armada just clumps my foundation when I sweat but this one does a great job for keeping my foundation lasts all day. The texture is similar to their Skin Savvy Liquid Foundation. Sometimes I just put pressed powder on top then I am good to go!!

Best SPF-UVA/UVB Protection Combination

Started using this everyday since last May. It leaves a light feeling on the skin. Although a bit sticky during application, give it a few minutes to dry and it should be just fine. Has the best combination of SPF and UVA/UVB protection. Will probably stick with this one for life unless I find something of an equal quality that's less expensive.

Best sunscreen!

I've been using it as my makeup base for the past month. It is easy to apply and doesnt leave an oily or thick feeling after application. My foundation and powder glides easily after application and does not leave any uneven blobs. This is one of the best combination UVA/UVB sunscreens i have tried. It's pricey, though

Great sunscreen as expected

Tried a lot of Armada sunblock since it's my favorite ever! This one is great for daily use since it has lower SPF and is not that sticky and heavy to the face especially if you're applying makeup and powder afterwards. I just prefer the SPF30 version because that one's more lightweight and does not leave whitish cast on photos.

A bit heavy

I got a tiny sample of this from a site. I love it's sun protection, it's spf 45 works well for quite a longer time than my other sunscreens but less sweat-resistant. I would love to keep this product but I'm too oily and this feels heavy on my face. I didn't breakout or anything though.

Too sticky for me, but good to have on hand for days with more intense sun exposure

I got a sample of this when I went to buy the Re-everything Eye Serum. I felt that it was too sticky for my face, and it left a whitish cast that was unpleasant to look at. Nevertheless, it has good SPF, and I'll probably use it once in a while when I know I'll be under the sun for longer than usual, and at harsher hours (like near noon). My HG sunscreen though is still the Tizo3 Facial Mineral Sunscreen: lightly tinted, cream to almost powder finish, and absolutely no sticky residue. It even works well as a primer if you wear makeup. Anyway, I'm glad I asked for a sample of this Armada sunscreen before purchasing, otherwise I think I would haven't have been too happy.

Gentle, but financially not-so-wise

All the Armada sunscreens never disappoint—I used them for four years and counting—but my dermatologist advised me not to be blinded by SPF numbers. SPF 30 gives the same protection as SPF 45, but for a cheaper price—which is probably why it's much better to stick with SPF 30.

Skin itches

To think I've been using their Re Everything Line and love it. But when you use this retinol based line you need to use sunblock daily, which I do anyway. So I thought I'd try this as it got good reviews and it is the foundation of their brand and it's from them too. When I first applied it it was actually ok. The problem started when I would sweat, just a light sweat while walking my dog, then my face would itch and sting, ugh! I thought it was just for first time use and my skin would get used to it, sadly no, it still itched once I sweat. Even if I washed it all off it would leave a bit of skin sensitivity behind. So it's a no go unless I go somewhere air conditioned and not sweat. Glad only got the smaller tube to try but it's still an expensive mistake.
