Not all UV filters are safe and/or effective! All I knew was as long as I apply my filters religiously – be it chemical or physical ones, I was safe. I was so disciplined that I applied even when I worked from home.
I’ve reviewed countless sun protection products and each time I wrote, I focused on the benefits the brand stated. I wasn’t set on checking the ingredients since I never studied them before. Anyway, who would know that a bad ingredient can actually cause more sun spots than protect from it? Who would know that a baby-friendly brand would sell products that contained cancer-causing chemicals since they are known as ‘no more tears’? (I’m sure there was plenty of tears after those news)
Last year, I started using Sunday Morning “coco de vanilla” (high protection) sunblock from bSoul. I haven’t really talk about this product on the blog before but I did mention it this my Bali Water Rafting post. I’ve never gotten new spots or sunburns ever since I started using this when I go for outdoor activities! Not to mention, the scent is wonderful!
Why I choose Sunday Morning by bSoul sunblock?
- Contains both UVA & UVB filters
- Blocks out harmful UVA with organic photo-stable ingredients
- NOT irritating to skin and eyes
- NOT phototoxic
- NOT acute toxicity (no dose depending effect), no accumulation toxicity (dose depending effect).
- NOT mutagenic
- NOT teratogenic

Enjoy the sun, but take care of the skin! If you will get tanned, you will even with sunblock, so please avoid risking your skin by using sun-care or tanning products with barely-there protection and bad ingredients! I love a nice bronzy tan too but skin first!
