Is your face sun-protected GIVEAWAY!

I was brought up in a 'beauty' line family way, as my aunt who is very much a good knowledge of skin care always teach me how to maintain a good skin. Of all the tips she given me, I always remember she keeps reminding me that I should apply sun protection cream on my skin, and not expose too much under the strong sun.

Each morning when I get out to work, I will surely apply a high SPF based sun protection cream, and again on my hands if I am going to walk out under the sun during my lunch hour. But I confess, I don't like the cream on my face, as I find it oily in one way or another. Even when I put on Princess, she just don't like it on her face as she thinks it's sticky!!! Each apply will end up in tissue paper within the next minute!

Each time I am at the beach, I will diligently apply coat and coat of sun protection cream to prevent become a roasted 'pig' (a good term to explain due to my size.. LOL)! On top of that, I hate the peeling that happen after each 'burned' session. 

Now, today, to be specifically this morning, I finally try out the new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50. I first apply a small spot on my hand to try, just to make sure it absorbs well into my skin and does not leave any oily feeling. In addition, I also want to make sure it's makes my skin smooth too! 

I read that Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 is Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested. In addition, I know that Banana Boat products are Sun-Tested, Sun-Proven® protection against the sun’s rays.

In addition, Banana Boat’s AvoTriplex® Technology combines: 

· Avobenzone, a powerful absorber of UVA rays which cause long-term skin damage. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin’s dermis and hypodermis layers to cause long-term harm to the skin. 

· UVB absorbers to protect against the burning effects of the sun. Without proper protection, UVB rays penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer, causing it to burn within minutes, depending on your skin type. 

· A photo-stabilizing agent to maintain longer-lasting sun protection without breaking down so easily

Oh now, the last 'benefits' has speak it loud for me to try!!  I can now take many many photos under the sun (mostly for my princess) after she apply the Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50!!  I hate those oily feeling photos!! and what more all the sweat dripping!! (you can clearly see the sweat as water and oil cannot ngam) :p

So guess my jumping cheers when I read the box says, Helps Prevent Premature Skin Damage, Hypoallergenic, Oil Free, Very Water Resistant.
Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 comes in 60ml units and is available at RM32.90 at all chain pharmacies, retail stores and hypermarkets.

I did a comparison of putting a drop of the cream on my hand, and you can see, with the cream on, my hand is much smoother and brighter compared to the one at the bottom.  

And if you want to know how to apply cream on your face, let me Princess show it to you..

I didn't manage to toggle the video from the online video editor, and hope you be able to view it.
