Belo SunExpert

Aaaah… Here’s the obligatory summer-themed post. I’m usually hidden away in a “cave” where no light ever shines through, but on the rare occasion that I’m up to it, I journey to the beach for the sun, sand, sea, and…komodo dragons.

We had to ride a boat to get to the island and, apparently, komodo dragons are part of the local wildlife

We went on a quick Holy Week trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Naturally, it was the perfect venue to test the complete Belo SUNEXPERT line. Mine came from Sample Room, and here’s a photo I styled for the occasion.

Clockwise from left: Sunexpert FACE SPF 40, Sunexpert MIST SPF 50, and Sunexpert BODY SPF 60

Now let’s get down to business, because this is gonna be a three-for-one blog post…

Belo Sunexpert SPF 50 PA+++ Transparent Mist

Ingredients; The text faded from a run-in with some seawater

Quick Specs: PHP 449.75 for 100ml; UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum

  • Travel-friendly packaging. The container is lightweight and non-bulky, so feel free to stick it into totes and purses as much as you like.
  • 100ml is the right amount of liquid for a spray that can be used all over the body (and face). If you use this liberally everyday (complete with reapplications midday), this could last you a month. Definitely more than a month, if you’re just using it on your limbs.
  • True to its claims, it isn’t sticky, it dries quickly, and it doesn’t break me out.
  • I’ve used this under makeup, before primer and foundation. Just spray some on the hands and pat on the face. Hey, it’s better than waiting for a cream to get absorbed into the skin, especially in this heat. (Don’t know if it’s advisable for dry skin.)
  • At first spray, there’s a strong whiff of its alcohol base, but that rapidly disappears in a matter of seconds.
  • This is my personal favorite among the three Belo Sunexpert products, because it’s so convenient to apply.

Belo Sunexpert SPF 40 PA+++ Face

Ingredients

Quick Specs: PHP 329.75 for 50ml; UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum

  • The light consistency of the cream/fluid is similar to Belo’s day cream, meaning it doesn’t feel sticky at all and it’s easy to smooth all over the face.
  • No offensive scent.
  • Leaves skin with a dewy, just-moisturized finish. I’ve used this under primer and foundation, and I didn’t experience any more re-greasing than usual.

Middle Finger: Sunexpert Face, Ring Finger: Sunexpert Body; It might not be obvious in this photo, but Sunexpert Body has a yellowish tinge compared to Sunexpert Face’s pure white

Belo Sunexpert SPF 60 PA+++ Body

Ingredients

Quick Specs: PHP 459.75 for 100ml; UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum

  • Feels like a light lotion. Non-sticky.
  • Has a mild sunblock scent.
  • Leaves a slight white cast, but nothing too unnatural.
  • Unexpected bonus: It leaves skin with a slight sheen that actually flatters tans and makes skin look glowing.

 

Recommendation: All three products are remarkable, but I think the most versatile for everyday use is the spray.

One thought on “Belo SunExpert

  1. […] Belo Sun Expert SPF 50 Transparent Mist – I need to have spray/mist sun protection all the time. In fact, I should just shove a small one into my purse. I always forget to spray when I’m rushing out of the house, so this took longer than expected to finish up. Belo SunExpert Mist smells subtler than the usual sunblock, but there is still a distinct whiff of that. […]
