A little story that goes with A Product Review: Neutrogena Sunblock SPF 100+ VS Coppertone SPF 50

Hi Lovelies! How are you doing? It’s summer time and recently I had a lot of fun with my friends at beach & water parks.







The SAD thing is, when I went to the water park.. I brought Coppertone Sport Ultra Sweatproof SPF 50 Sunscreen with me, thinking it will be enough. 




My friend A, who is really scared of sunburned, brought Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 100+ with her. 



When I saw SPF 100+ VS my SPF 50, I thought, ok, I better apply the SPF 100 on my face! 

So for the rest of my body, I put my own sunscreen and for my face, I used the Neutrogena SPF 100+

My friend B, also bought Neutrogena’s SPF 100+  sunblock in spray can. But she also borrow some of my sunscreen on her black & (some) shoulders ( when I help her applied). 



So far in the story, what do you think our mistake was? 

Take a guess & scroll down....

Ready to find out what happen? 

After we were at the water park for a while. Friend B said Friend A is starting to have sunburn on her shoulders. & So did Friend B, although not as serious. As for me. NOTHING!

So we went back to apply more sunblock ~ & we did that I think 1 or 2 more times for the rest of the day.  ( & I still applied Neutrogena on my face..) 

Poor Me. did not even look in the mirror. but now I realize, I HAVE A TAN FACE! My face is now darker then my arm!!! WTH!!!!

I’m surprised that I’m still being somewhat calm about this. because of course, for (most) Asian girls, the thing you want the least is a TAN FACE! <== I mean, even if you are Asian & like to be tan, you wouldn’t want it just on your face, no? 

I guess I am somewhat thankful?!??! because the tan is evenly throughout the face, and while it is not EXTREMELY darker ( that I still recognized myself in the mirror..) .. but it is VERY OBVIOUS! <== since my arm started out to be darker then my face.. n now my face is darker then my arm?!??! 

OMG!!!!!

so horrible, that I don’t know if I want to post a pixx. of it.. If you really want to see.. I will upload later.. but that would be a huge sacrifice from me... 

so my review for Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 100+ 3 fl oz ? 

ZERO STARS!!!

I dont care if you say sunblock is not suppose to keep your skin white.. blah.. because obviously, my other SPF 50 sunscreen worked!!! Or at least worked better! that my skin did not get as dark ! <== all my friends got obviously darker on their body except for me. 

As for my own sunscreen, I think I give it 4 stars. It protect me well & non-greesy! 

( PS. I just research a little, because I can never remember the difference between sunblock and sunscreen. So far, it looks like sunblock should have better protection then sunscreen.. but yeah it did not !) 

so yeah, that’s my review for the day. & well.. I hope my tan goes away soon. or else IDK how to make another video for you... although through my experience my tan goes away quite SLOW.. so maybe I’ll have to be really cakey now with makeup.. ahhhh! >_<

  1. ...WHAT?! 100+ SPF but STILL tanning!? I feel sorry for you getting a tan... I would not like it either, but that's because I don't look good with it. I completely love it if the ppl pull it off though :) Thanks for this review. Actually I have the suncream your friend has but in 70spf... I'm doubting it now LOL

  4. yeah i remember reading about suncreens/sunblock and even though it may say 100+ spf don't believe because its still same as if you wear 50+ spf or lower like 40+ or 30+ as long as its uva/uvb and reapply consistently sunscreen/sunblock will work well ^u^ at least u didn't get sunburned i always get sunburned so this year i decided to stay out of the sun

  6. 100+ SPF?? Whoa, I've never worn anything that high and if it's not going to work, I really think they shouldn't do false-advertising like that.
    Sorry to hear about the mismatched tanning. Don't worry about it, though, you look quite fair normally and I think fair people recover faster :D

  7. Omg that sucks! I hope your tan fades soon! I think the amount of SPF in these recent sunscreens is crazy! Im glad that nothing serious happened to you but then again being two shades lighter is pretty serious to a girl! Thank goodness for makeup! I think even if you cake on makeup it will be hard to tell in video so don't worry =D!
