Heliocare Advanced SPF50 Gel


Loving the sun is perfectly alright, however, don't love the sun until it burns your skin. Morning sunlight I know is vital for producing vitamin D, however, plenty of sunlight in the afternoon especially, is the road to disaster. Sunburn, sun spots, pigmentation and wrinkled skin, my dear ladies, if you don't know, let me tell that is the cause of not protecting your skin from uva/uvb, outside and indoor sun-ray. Precisely. And with our over-friendly sun-friendly Malaysian weather, please ladies, please block the sun from your skin with a sunblock. I learned it the hardest way. In the name of gardening, I was in the hot sun for two or days constantly,  and the outcome was none other than a bashed up skin. I had to spin a wheel of money, whether I liked it or not, at the skin doctor to remove the sunburn marks. From there on, nava-k's skin is heavily protected with sunblock, additionally with sunglasses, scarf or umbrella.

Today, I am going to introduce to you this Heliocare Advanced SPF50 Gel -
A clinical gel sunblock, dermatologist recommended, Heliocare gel contain high sun protection - broad spectrum SPF 50 UVA/UVB. Oil-free, light beige shade and transparent without white cast. Easy to apply, light to the touch formulation, water resistant and suitable for all skin types. Also, combining high technology mineral and non-mineral filters with photo-biological protectants, featuring Fernblock, a natural fern extract unique to the brand.

My take on this gel.
Gliding easily and smoothly on my combination-sensitive skin, I love how it set me in a natural look. No issues with oiliness  neither did it break me up, it is also somewhat nourishing, meaning, acts as a great moisturiser prior to applying face powder. Mind you, even if you apply more than enough, you can be assured that there won't be any unwarranted effects. As you can see from the picture below, this gel is packaged in a plastic tube, nothing fancy frilly but clearly labelled with ever other product information. However, its not a cheap gel ladies. I paid around RM200.00. Not sure if I should say worth the investment, so far after using it for 2 months, perhaps can take me through for another, lets say most to most 4 months. No doubt, I must applause Heliocare Advanced SPF50 for its strong sun protection mechanism and for keeping my skin moisturised, the only concern which I won't dispute, again said, is the price.  
In the next post, I am going to introduce another Heliocare product, one which is for consumption, yet for the same purpose of protecting our skin from the sun. Yes, you heard it right. Its capsules, speak about the advancement in the beauty industry, we shall when I see you again.

Don't forget to trend alongside "beauty with nava-k" on every other social media pleassee!!

  4. I am also overprotective of my skin, and have the dermatologist bills to prove it. Since my skin is sensitive to boot, I swear by LaRoche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50.
