Heliocare Advanced SPF50 Gel

Loving the sun is not wrong but defending the skin from sun ray is vital. The sun of course we need for different reasons, for example for the natural sunlight and that for a couple of reasons as well. Those reasons certainly I am not going to dwell over because the point I am trying to say is defending our skin against the sun. Sun ray or the indoor infra-ray we know is not friendly for our complexion. Thus, every woman by right should invest in a sunblock.

As far as I can remember, there was once I completely forgot to apply sunblock while gardening in the burning sun and oh-oh!! I almost cried buckets of tears. My skin was totally gone, I mean badly sunburned. Despite applying a couple of counter products, sad to say, they didn't help at all. So, I had to pay quite a substantial amount to put back my skin into perspective. Truly a painful lesson but a lesson which taught me that never take the skin for granted against the bad-bad-bad sun ray. So, here I am with this clinical sunblock product, also, dermatologist recommended and now lets get to know Heliocare gel.  

Heliocare gel contain high sun protection - SPF 50 with UVA and UVB. Its oil-free, light beige colour and transparent without the 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.
The gel is a nourishing without the oily texture and sets in well on my combination-sensitive skin. Even if you apply more than enough, the gel does not aggravate your oil glands, thus naturally does not break up your skin. It glides and absorbs in the skin with just a few gently strokes as well as lightly massaging. With this gel, you don't need to apply a moisturiser but I like to moisturise my skin, always the start to my daily beauty regime. Next of course the gel and compact powder.

As you can see from this picture, the gel is packaged in a plastic tube, nothing fancy frilly but clearly labelled so that you know what you are applying from day one. This gel definitely is not cheap because I paid around RM200.00. Still,it is worth the investment. So far, after 2 months, this gel has strongly defended my skin from the sun and not at all any spots. I suppose sometimes we have to put aside the theory for reasonably priced products and perhaps once in a while invest in such a cream. Moreover, it is lasting and I think can take me through for another lets say 4 months once a day.   
In the next post, I am going to introduce another Heliocare product and that the oral capsules. Yes, you heard it right. WE now have capsules as an additional product to keep the sun away. Speak about the invention in the beauty industry, shall we? Do stay tune to read about it.

  1. What is "combination skin"?

  2. I'm using SPF 50 by Avene. An aesthetic doc recommended it to me & I kinda like it. It's interesting to see the product in gel form; will like to try it.

    Nava, thks so much for the guest post invitation! Will confirm as soon as I can as I'm currently tied-up with reviews. Would really love to collaborate with you :)

  3. King - combination skin can be like oil and dry at certain parts of the skin.

  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.

  5. my wife always use sunblock..
    I could recomend this to her..

  6. I agree with you about the importance of sun screen! I abused my skin when I was younger...this lily white complexion should have seen much less sun!

  7. do take care, due to the changing weather these days :)
