Review: Block and White Intensive Whitening Sunblock

Howdy! Happy Friday to all! Yay, last day of work before the long weekend. I am wishing my family can go stay at our place in Tagaytay so that I can breath fresh air even for a couple of days haha ^_^

Today, I will be reviewing Block and White Intensive Whitening Sunblock SPF 50. The name says it all. It's a sunblock lotion that contains whitening ingredients and at the same time has high protection against the UV rays.

As you might know, I am kind of addicted to products with at least SPF 30. I tend to grab items that have words: SPF 30 (and up) with PA++, whitening, anti aging, oil free, non comedogenic. So when I saw this last year at Landmark Department Store, I decided to buy it.

the ingredients...
Why I am loving this...


- It contains high spf...SPF 50 PA++! More than enough for days that I am walking under the sun the whole day.

- Contains whitening ingredients. I am addicted to anything whitening because I want my skin to have even skintone. My arms are technically the darkest part of my body so I love using whitening lotions so it can at least be of the same color as my chest.

- Affordable compared to other sunblocks in the market. This 100ml bottle sells at Php245 only.

- Not sticky. This comes in a liquid form and spreads easily.

- Doesn't have a strong scent.

- No skin irritations.

- I love the simple packaging. I was able to use every drop of the product and it doesn't spill in my bag whenever I bring it with me on travels.


What I don't like about it...

- None! I have no complaints whatsoever


WILL I REPURCHASE? Of course! I have repurchased this for more than 3x already in the past year. This is my HG body sunblock.


TO WHOM WILL I RECOMMEND THIS?

- everyone!

- people who are using whitening products. Remember that if you use whitening products, your skin gets dark easier when exposed to sun so don't forget to protect your skin!

- people who loves whitening lotion. This contains ingredients that helps whiten skin.

- People who loves 2in1 products like me.

- people who are looking for a great everyday sunblock that is not sticky and not expensive.


What about you? What is your favorite sunblock? Please share them with me. I would love to try it too ^_^

Thank you for dropping by! Till my next post. Bye!

Naku, I've had my eyes on this for the longest time. My ultra fave whitening lotion's from L'oreal, their triple whitening body moisturizer. It absolutely whitens, however, it's just spf 18. Another lotion ive always loved is the Revlon Aquamarine Lotion with Vitamin A and Collagen --- now, this, THIS doesnt promise to whiten BUT it just amazingly gives me a radiant and smooth skin. The effects are physically noticeable it's darn unbelievable that it's priced at 100+ lang!!!

SAdly, both of these are discontinued na :( So bad! You can wildly guess how it shattered my world--- twice pa ha. 2x na discontinue ang HG lotions ko... hay, ang malas.

Thanks for sharing about this. Ive tried the Ultima and it's terrific. But it's just too costly, 100ml bottle for 200pesos --- maybe ill just switch to this. And oh, I've also used Vaseline healthy white for the longest time :)

Hi Claudio! Do you have a Facebook account? Maybe we can talk there if you have problem with the email..I will try to check everything for you ^_^

Hi Arg! I think this lotion is getting discontinued too...I've been searching for it for some time now and wala lagi stock :(

Block & White Sunblock contains Methylparaben. Studies indicate that methylparaben applied on the skin may react with UVB, leading to increased skin aging and DNA damage

Crystal Gale said...

Hi Cecilia! Thank you for that information. I will definitely check this variety if it does have it. :)

Hi! I just bought Block&White Sunblock spf50. I have a fair skin, but I still want to use sunblock. This is my first time using sunblock as my lotion and I am afraud that maybe my skin will get darker if I am going to get exposed under the sun for so long. Is my skin going to get darker if I am exposed under the sun? And when staying under the sun how long should it just be? TY ♥
