Haha, now you make me want to run out and get the Biotherm sunblock;D! I will definitely give it a try when I'm done with my currently bottle.

I've tried Sunplay and it's very good (SPF130 is so hard to come by!), but it leaves a slightly whitish screen if I apply it on my body. I don't really care if I'm just out there exercising though.. protection from the sun is more important;p.

Another sunblock that I used to like before I switched to Anessa is Clinique's Super City Block. It's oilfree and slightly tinted (thus doubling up as a makeup base), but it didn't have a high enough SPF for me. It now has 40 I think, but I was using 30 for a while and I started getting a few freckles (horror;p), so I switched to 50.

p.s. the studio I went to is called Di Gio, along Tanjong Pagar Road:).

The Biotherm sunblock costs $68 SGD for a 30ml tube.

Yeps! We gals love Sunplay, especially the SPF 130 version.
I think we can apply it over our lightweight body moisturiser. This way, it could reduce the whitish residue?

One word of caution though. The higher the SPF value for a sunblock, the 'heavier' it will be. Not to mention the chemical content.

There was this 40degrees scorching summer I spent in Suzhou (some years back). I was so paranoid that I applied Sunplay's 130 onto my face daily. In the end, numerous skin coloured bumps(look like tiny pimples) formed on my face. Ewww...A case of milia attack. YUCKS.

I have learnt to go easy on sunblocking my face from then on. SPF 50 max and apply not that liberally.
