MARCH 5 EDITOR'S PICK    SKIN CARE    SUN PROTECTION    WHITENING   

Expertly chic and expertly protected by #BeloSunExpert!

Just like any Filipina during March, I'm all about those summer adventures! Our warm, tropical weather is just the thing to get us in that summer mood, but it's not summer without the sun. While I'm very much used to the sun, I have to admit, I've gotten pretty cozy with our cool February breeze. I'm not so sure how I'll be able to take this year's hot weather. Still, adventure is right outside our doorsteps and we shouldn't let the sun stop us from having fun!


One big must-have during the summer is, of course, sunscreen! The sun will be stronger than ever for the next couple of months, and whether we feel it or not, its rays have great effects on our skin.When we're outdoors like at the beach or just touring around, we're being exposed to UV rays that could potentially damage our skin without the right protection.


As a person who loves the beach, I Iike to stay out in the sun until it sets. As much as possible, I like my skin to stay protected and but still look good on all my beach pics. When I heard about Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen SPF 50 and PA++ and Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50 and PA++++, I was stunned. All this time, I thought sunscreen was just sunscreen! Apparently, you can brighten your skin or use it as foundation if you'd like.



Before I went on my trip, I decided to bring both products with me to test them. Both products have different needs that they address, but the great thing is, they've both got Cell Protect which strengthens your skin's defense against premature skin aging. Both products also have SPF 50 and their own PA ratings; the Whitening Sunscreen has PA++, while the Tinted Sunscreen has PA++++.


To break it down, PA ratings help us identify how much a product can protect you from UVA rays.





The PA system was developed by Japan and has been used worldwide as a measure of protection against UVA rays. UVA rays are ultraviolet rays that can damage and tan skin without proper protection.



Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen is a holy grail product in the Filipino sunscreen market. It has Niacinamide and Brightening Essence, which helps brighten your skin and even out your skin tone with continuous usage.


For us girls worried about getting an unwanted tan or uneven tan lines on our faces, Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen is the way to go! It won't worsen an already bad face tan or create unwanted tan lines because it whitens as it protects. When you open it, you'll find that it smells great and is not too thick in consistency, making it lightweight when applied on your skin. My sunscreen pet peeves are sticky feelings and white cast, neither of which Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen had at all!


When I arrived at my destination, I was excited to finally try it! After spreading the sunscreen evenly on my face, I decided to put it to the test by taking a dip in the water for a bit. Can't have the beach without the sea-- so a sunscreen that'll stay despite that is a true winner! I think Belo SunExpert knows this very well because when I came back from the water, tada! The sunscreen still stayed. I could still faintly smell it and I didn't feel any type of sunburn or see any type of tan on my face afterwards. This sunscreen's also got a rating of PA++ and a protective and anti-aging formula.


Voila! Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen has got it all-- its non-sticky, lightweight, water-resistant AND whitens as it protects. Can we ask for anything more?!



Next, we're taking on Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen. If you love beach pics like me, you'll know the struggle of trying to figure out what to use on your face that'll protect you AND conceal your imperfections. I'm also on the morena side, and I've found that a lot of big brand tinted moisturizers don't match me at all. This has been a struggle for most morenas everywhere!



As you may have guessed, I was super stoked to try Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen and see if its results were visible. When opening the bottle, you'll notice the opening is actually a nozzle, which really drives the point home for me-- this was totally meant to be used like make-up! I squeezed a small amount on the back of my hand and tried to blend it with my fingers first. was a bit scared my skin tone was too warm-- but since Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen has Tone Adapt Technology, it blended with my skin tone seamlessly! On the other side of my face, I used a brush to apply the product.



The product also blended seamlessly with a brush, but I did need to use a little bit more product. Between both options, I prefer using my fingers to blend it. As for the coverage, Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen gives great medium coverage. For that day, put on a bit of powder, some eyebrow make-up, and mascara for a natural beachy look. I have to say, it really did its job on concealing my imperfections like fine lines, dark spots, and some minor blemishes. This part about it is that it's also a powerful sunscreen!


Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen has a PA++++ rating, the highest PA rating there is. This means that it's got the highest rating in protecting skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. While it's protecting your skin from UV rays, it also gives you a flawless natural look. If you're the type of girl to look for a natural make-up look while having your skin protected, then Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen is for you! Just dab on a bit of powder after your make-up routine and you can enjoy your day without having too worry!



With Belo SunExpert in hand, I'm way more confident in going out and having some fun in the sun. Don't be fooled-- sunscreen isn't just for beach use, it should be used every day too! Any time we're being exposed to the sun or even monitors, we're also being exposed to potentially harmful UVA/UVB rays. So whether you know it or not, your skin is experiencing sun damage. This is why it's best to use sunscreen every day, and a lightweight one at that! It all boils down to your personal preferences and concerns.


Personally, I've had way too many experiences with having an uneven tan line or even a bit of sun burn on my face! Luckily, Belo SunExpert lives up to its name of being experts in protecting your skin from the sun. We've got two different options that each have their own set of skin concerns to target. If you're worried about an unwanted tan, try out Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen-- it'll protect your skin as it brightens it with regular use. As for girls who want a make-up product and sunscreen in one, check out Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen! You can use it as primer or foundation before completing your every day routine. Or if you have both of these concerns-- why not try both? ;)
