Sunscreen is an essential that I couldn't live without. As of the moment, I have about five opened sunscreens which I use alternately depends on my skin needs. It's summer now but it doesn't mean we never have to use it for the rest of the year. Yes, no matter what season or what day it is, I make sure to slather a generous amount of sunscreen for protection. You may not see the need and importance of using it now, but later on, you will thank yourself for preventing premature aging. Using sunscreen daily is one the best ways to combat it aside from eating food that are healthy for the skin.
Today, let's talk about Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++. I'm used and been in loved with the Belo SunExpert Face Cover SPF40 PA+++ and Perfecting Shield Tinted Sunscreen that I lost track how many times I repurchased in the past 2 years. I'm so glad that they come up with a whitening variant with added SPF that not only prevents skin darkening but also helps lighten and maintain the skin tone as well.

Product comes in a tube container for easy dispensing of the product. It's lightweight too so you can bring it conveniently anytime and anywhere you want. Just like all Belo products, they are designed in a way that there's enough room for important product information such as benefits/claims, usage, warning and ingredient list. The cap shuts tight with a click so product doesn't leak or whatsoever.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
The product has a very faint scent I couldn't almost distinguish it. It's opaque white in color and has a soft, creamy consistency. It's very easy to blend and surprisingly, it doesn't leave any streaks or white cast on the skin. It also dries quickly. I like that I can use it under makeup and the product won't make the base any cakey or patchy.
Just like all of Belo's sunscreen products, I really feel that my skin is really protected under the sun. I don't see such significant lightening effect after using it for more than a month. To be fair, skin lightening is never easy to achieve and I know it by heart. It takes religious skincare, effective products, a bucket of patience and several months of waiting (possibly in vain) before you see it happen. If you are not very tight on budget, you can opt for food supplements or even undergo chemical procedures for faster results. I said a lot but my point is, this is not that product that you buy to see miracles overnight. On a lighter note, this has a brightening effect on the skin that doesn't look awkward.
I haven't tested nor used it during a getaway but I think staying under the sun in the afternoon (when the sun's at its strongest point) is enough for me to gauge whether or not this works. I remember having a long day when we went to Taytay and shopped for clothes and stuff. After hours of exposure to sun and heat, I went home to Valenzuela (imagine my hours of commute!) and go straight to Post Office to pick up a parcel. I wore it from morning to almost evening and my skin did not darken at all nor felt tight. Another great thing about this product is that it feels very lightweight and non-sticky and it's very comfortable on the skin even after perspiring a lot.
If you are looking for affordable and lightweight sunscreens, go for Belo SunExpert range. All of them are worth the money. These will forever be one of my go-to sunscreens and you'll know it because I always recommend them. Thank you so much for reading! Happy blogging!
