Sunplay Watery Cool Body Mist and Sunblock Review



[Sponsored Advertorial]

I don't know if it is just me, but seriously the weather hasn't been giving face lately. It's so freaking hot in the noon that even when I take a shower without the heater the water its hot too!

And.. for the love of God Mentholathum had came up with a new series of sunblock product that keeps you cool!!



Here are the products!!

Sunplay Watery Cool Sunblock SPF 65 PA+++ and Sunplay Watery Cool Mist SPF75 PA+++.
 I'm even dressed in blue to give you that watery and cool feeling as you are reading this post lol wtf.



The sunblock is the one in the smaller bottle and the new Sunplay Watery Cool Mist is the one in the spray can bottle. I have a lot to rave about these 2 because I think they are the coolest thing being invented. They are also the coolest among all the sunblocks in the market so what I've just said is technically justified. *smug

Besides, like what I've mentioned in Sunplay's review previously, Sunplay's products provides high protection against 3 signs of sun damage:




Here's the Sunplay Watery Cool Sunblock SPF 65 PA +++ retailing at SGD 17.20. Just 2 days ago I've introduced you his good friend Sunplay Superblock which has a sun protection factor of 130 PA++. And now this Sunplay Watery Cool Sunblock is also pretty cool in his own way because it contains Menthol!

When I was told that I will be sent these 2 products to review I was very hyped up about it. Because I have heard of menthol in soaps to give you that refreshing and cool feeling after you've bathed but I've never heard of menthol in sunblock!


On the back of the product's package clearly list out the features of this sunblock. What matters most important to me would be that it is sweat and water proof and it could be used on my face!


And of course I'll always take a look at their list of ingredients to find out if they have the important ingredients that  make up a good sunblock or sunscreen :)



Texture: The white spots that you see in some pictures are just the fine hairs on my arm. I like it's texture because it is very watery. Just a little bit of sunblock and you will be able to spread and cover a wide surface area. After the application there isn't any white cast which is great!

Greasiness and Feel: The after-application is very light and non-greasy where my skin still remains pretty smooth. What is best about this product is that you will really feel a cooling sensation on your skin!! Because usually the times when you know you really need a sunblock is during times when you are under the sun feeling hot and humid! And applying this sunblock is like having a mini fan blowing every single cell on my skin wtf. But don't apply it in an air-conditioned area lah, or else you'll be very cold.

Smell: This sunblock do not have the classic sunblock smell. Instead it has another intriguing smell that reminds me of Fisherman's friends' sweets! 

Packaging: Again, I like how this isn't in a tube kind which would usually leak if I accidentally squashed it in my make up bag and the size is definitely travel-friendly. And penguins on the bottle are just too cute to be ignored haha.



I like how it is suitable for my face because there are hardly any sunblock which could be applied to the face and Sunplay's products are suitable!


The other product is the Sunplay Watery Cool Mist!







In case you didn't know, not all sunblock or sunscreens in the market has protection against both UVA and UVB rays! Earlier on I have blogged about this topic you could refer here to find out more about that. Photobucket


Spray nozzle. Remember to hold it at 6-8 inches away from body. did mention that Sunplay products are suitable for the face.. but for this spray mist please do not spray it directly onto your face! Always spray onto palm and then you can apply it on your face


I dont really have the before and after picture to show you because the moment I spray onto my arm it gets absorbed and that's why I only have one picture for you. No white cast at all!

The best part about spray on sunblock is because they are able to save me LOTS of time. During boating trips my friends would always religiously squeeze out a bit of sunblock / sunscreen on their palm and apply it onto their arms or legs and it would take at least 2-4 times to finish applying on one hand and of course I was once that loser too wtf.
Until one fine day my friend Sylvie whipped out her spray on sunblock and finished applying her sunblock within a minute and I was like . Immediately after that I went to search for a spray-on sunblock and never once regretted so far.

Because other than saving lots of time, personally I don't like to rub lotion or all that lah. During the times where I am really desperate and have to squeeze some lotion on my hand I dont like to squasssssh the lotion in between my palm and rubbb. Lol it is only me who feels this way?

Besides, another plus point is that a spray-on sunblock is able to provide a very even finish which I like!
Greasiness and feel: After application, I wouldnt classify it as oily or any trace of oily sheen, but it does leaves behind a little bit of sticky feeling. Which I am pretty much ok with it because the other spray on sunblock I was using all along had a greasier finish! So this is pretty mild. But of course the best part is it also gives me a very cooling sensation! They do not contain menthol so I believe the cooling sensation came from one of its ingredient alcohol. Cant wait to try this out on boyfriend this weekend to Sentosa!

As for the smell, if you smell it immediately right after you have sprayed on the sunblock you can smell a faint hint of alcohol smell. And few seconds later it is replaced by a scent which is quite nice, but I just cant put my mind on what scent it is. T_T but one thing for sure is that it does not smell like fisherman's friend. If I really had to choose I would prefer the Sunplay Watery Cool Mist's smell :)



UVA and UVB rays you can kiss my ass!!!
