DAY-LIGHT PROTECTION SUNSCREEN SPF 50/PA+++ Review 

by Michelle Winter

DAY-LIGHT PROTECTION SUNSCREEN SPF 50/PA+++

I’m thrilled to announce I’ve found my soulmate. No, I’m not talking about Korean drama idols Gong Yoo or Lee Dong-Wook (unfortunately) but Neogen Dermalogy’s Day-Light Sun Protection Sunscreen SPF 50/PA +++.

Ok, I’m obsessing over another sun cream, what’s new? Sure, it’s my favourite beauty product but protecting our skin throughout the year with SPF is very important. If you haven’t tried this delightful Neogen offering, you really should.

It aims to offer intensive protection from UVA and UVB rays as well as hydrate skin. The PA rating in sun cream is a Japanese protection grade which tells you the UVA protection level. PA+ stands for some UVA ray protection, PA++ offers moderate protection and PA+++ gives very good UVA protection.

I couldn’t wait to try this. Here’s how I got on…

 

Application

Hands up if you’ve spent what feels like an eternity applying sun cream only to end up looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost regardless of how long you spend rubbing it in?

If you have a multi-step beauty regime, it’s important to find sun protection that fits in with the rest of your routine. Who else loathes the dreaded ‘product pilling’ (when a product isn’t easily absorbed and just sits on the surface of the skin)?

Neogen Dermalogy’s Day-Light Sun Protection Sunscreen SPF 50/PA +++ blends into my skin within minutes and layers over my moisturiser perfectly. Even after I apply a colour correcting cushion there’s no pilling. Hurrah! It smells INCREDIBLE, too. It’s the stuff of dreams…

My complexion is noticeably more moisturised with a lovely glow (à la Ryohei Kato!). My skin has been rather sensitive at the moment and after applying this, it feels less irritated. It doesn’t leave a white cast or make my skin greasy. Seriously, this sun cream is my life. I’ve already purchased another bottle.

 

Ingredients  

DAY-LIGHT PROTECTION SUNSCREEN SPF 50/PA+++

I’m delighted this is formulated without parabens, phthalates and sulphates. I’m equally thrilled it doesn’t contain a common sun cream ingredient octocrylene, which I’m keen to avoid. According to Women’s Health Magazine, when octocrylene is exposed to UV light it absorbs the rays and produces free radicals that can damage skin cells and cause mutations. In addition, it’s easily absorbed in our skin and can accumulate in our bodies.

Other ingredients include titanium dioxide, which helps to absorb UV light and zinc oxide, which sits on top of skin and reflects UVA and UVB rays.

What’s extra special about Neogen Dermalogy’s Day-Light Sun Protection Sunscreen are the moisturising ingredients. Sodium hyaluronate helps to boost moisture levels by penetrating the skin quickly. In case you didn’t know, sodium hyaluronate also has the ability to hold more than 1,000 times its weight in water.

My sensitive skin is soothed by a combination of euterpe oleracea fruit extract (acai) fruit oil, gentiana lutea root extract, rosa damascena flower extract and portulaca oleracea extract, which all have antioxidant benefits. Extracts of rubus idaeus (raspberry) help to calm inflamed skin and strengthen capillary walls, perfect for us gals with redness/rosacea. Vaccinium angustifolium (blueberry) extracts help boost vitamin C levels in the skin, which can prevent UV damage.

Other ingredients include anti-ageing beta-glucan and adenosine. The latter has anti-wrinkle benefits, too. This sun cream also contains my beloved skin brightening niacinamide and delicious lemon verbena. Wow, this really does have it all, doesn’t it?

 

Packaging

Who else fawns over beautiful product packaging? Guilty as charged. The packaging for this is sleek and sexy. Who wouldn’t want to be seen with it in their cosmetic bag?

BIO-PEEL GAUZE PEELING WINE
Review by Stella Thai

I was so, so ridiculously excited to try out this peeling pad because it’s been so hyped and so many have given amazing reviews for it. It’s been everywhere on Youtube, Instagram, blogs… so I figured that it was about time for me to hop on board of this train too and see what the hype is about. I did have to choose between the yellow (lemon) and purple (wine) but I ended up going with this one, for the very superficial fact that it would have looked prettier in photos. I know, I’m not very scientific, am I?

Foam Cleanser Green Tea & Day Light Sunscreen Review by Tristen Zaryn

This gentle cleanser made with natural green tea is definitely one of the best natural cleansers for sensitive skin on the market. I am very acne-prone so to put my confidence in a product like this is a huge win. I feel like it can draw out dirt and impurities as effectively as any other cleanser out there. The foam helps lather up the product quickly and soothes my easily-irritated skin. I usually use this in the morning to help feel more awake, pampered and ready to take on the day. It also does not leave my skin feeling stripped or damaged in any way, which I love!

NEO I SPOTLIGHT
The moisturizers you need to keep on your skincare cabinet all winter long

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... and to feel a lot like winter. Let's face it, winter is quickly approaching and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. #guilty

I remember the old days when I used to think moisture was just about looking dewy and keeping my skin hydrated. I had no idea how important it was to keep my skin moisturized in order to avoid wrinkles, acne, rosacea and even oiliness. Thankfully  I learned my lesson and nowadays moisturizing is an essential step of my everyday life.
