I guess Blogger just became mobile-friendly! I used to not be able to blog through my phone but all of a sudden I now can! Good for you, Blogspot. I’m thinking of switching to Wordpress because I’ve been having too many issues with this site lately - can’t upload new photos and the template layout is changing from time to time. Sometimes, it’s becoming unresponsive. I struggle with design and HTML, you know. I can barely keep up with blogging!
When I started this blog, I thought of it as a channel where it’s like I’m only writing in my diary with no pretenses. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy as long as I am open and honest. Now it feels like I have to compete with others by buying expensive templates and even a domain of my own. Ugh.
I didn’t realized that I started with a rant. My apologies. Anyway, here’s the last installment (is it?) to our Maxi-Peel review series.
Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream is a non-greasy, lightweight cream that protects skin from sunburn and hyperpigmentation. It contains SPF20 that shields skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays which contribute to skin damage that can last up to 5 hours. Use Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream during day time when you apply Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Solution at night for added protection during the entire exfoliation process. Re-apply as needed.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
This product has an insignificant scent, a bit weird and sunscreen'y but not offensive. It has an opaque white color and a creamy consistency. The cream is quite thicker than sunscreens I would normally use on a daily basis, nonetheless, it still feels comfortable as it dries to a semi-matte finish. Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream isn't the most lightweight sunscreen out there but still lightweight and easy-absorbing on its own.
I've tried other sunscreens that cause makeups to get all patchy. Sometimes, the cream and makeup pill and roll together. Because of the sun protecting ingredients, they can even cause white casts. I haven't experienced those with Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream fortunately. It can be layered under makeup without compromising the coverage. You can also easily apply it on its own whenever necessary and just douse some powder for a fresh look. The white pigment from Titanium Dioxide somehow contributes to instant skin brightening.
Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream has three UVA/UVB blockers: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Diethylamino, Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate and Titanium Dioxide - all of which are safe and effective. It also has Glycerin to moisturize the skin and has very little irritants. With regular use, my skin isn't clogged and irritated. This sunscreen is easy to wash off with oil cleansers.
This is an okay sunscreen for me in terms of formulation. My only concern is that it's lacking on the sun protection level. In a tropical country and most especially during summer, I believe that we need to use products with SPF not lower than 35 to make sure we're protected from the sun's harmful rays. This is advisable to be used together with Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Solution which I'm very skeptical about. If the skin is peeling, there's much more need to use stronger sunscreens.
The price is very affordable so if you are a bit tight on budget, this is a good alternative especially effective sunscreens usually comes at a steeper price tag. I just feel more secured in using high SPF sunscreens so I don't think that I'll be repurchasing Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream anytime soon. Splash is a very well-known and reputable brand so I would assume that there's always a place for improvement.
