Derived from the Spanish word “leyenda” which means “legend,” Leyende has stealthily been growing in popularity over the years as a trusted Filipino bath and body brand that delivers premium eco-friendly and organic products to its widening fan base. With ingredients sourced mainly from ECOCERT-certified and locally grown farms and companies, each lovingly handmade product is ideal for the environmentally-conscious and those with sensitive skin. In 2008, Leyende was included in the exclusive book, “50 Must-Buys in Manila,” which was edited by top stylist and magazine art director Michael Salientes, and premier jewelry designer Janina Dizon Hoschka.
I was actually very hesitant to purchase this because of the price (I'm a very cheapskate person lol). But I gave in, decided to give it a chance because I do want to explore more local products especially those that are organic to accommodate my sensitive skin. I instantly fell in love with it after first use. PROS: sinks into your skin super fast, doesn't leave a white film like most sunblocks do, gives your face a matte finish! CONS: not suitable if you sweat a lot. WOULD I REPURCHASE: Yes! Although I'm still considering to test out other local sunblocks, this ranks on top of my list of those that I've tried.12 months ago
I liked how it is natural/organic and locally made. I've used this for a week and a couple of days. For me, it's very thick and kinda hard to spread evenly on the face and it doesn't have a scent (which is okay). the only thing that stopped me from using this was because it made my skin more oily and i had more little bumps on my forehead and some zits on my cheeks. i'm now only using it on my chest and back.over 1 year ago
