Oh I love these! I was so happy when Mr Postman handed me the Sunplay PR parcel containing the brand new Sunplay Sport UV Body Mist and Lotion Sunscreen. Sports plays a big part in my lifestyle besides my love for everything beauty. Being someone active and constantly out under the hot sun, sun protection has become even more important than before. I must admit, I am so bad in applying sunscreen. I tell everyone to slap on sunscreen but I myself rarely do it. I am always eager to jump out of the car and run!
Choosing the right sunscreen for sports is tricky in terms of the SPF, texture and finishing. Sunplay’s new Sport UV range is formulated with Wet Skin Technology. This technology prevents the sunscreen from “bleeding” and turn white under wet condition. Both the Sport UV Body Mist and Sport UV Lotion has this quick dry formula. It is also what I like. As I am someone always jumping out from the car eagerly and start moving, I certainly do appreciate my sunscreen to have instant absorption.
Sunplay Sport UV Body Mist SPF120 PA++++ (RM58.90 / 165ml)
My favourite has got to be this Sport UV Body Mist. For an obvious reason – convenience! All I have to do is to mist all over myself like crazy and start running.
Because body mist is lightweight, I hardly feel anything on the skin, which is good as I would not want heavy layer on my skin when I am out for sports. Pros and con. The con is also because I cannot feel anything that I just keep misting and misting lol. I have tried this body mist midway running, under sweaty condition. No problem at all. The mist is kinda powdery from the look of it but it never leaves a white cast on the skin. One thing good about a body mist is that it will not drip down along with the sweat. My one advice is to mist this in open air. The mist from the can is no joke. If you mist like I do, you will create a smokey environment, as if you are having a bonfire or something 😀 . I shocked mom at one point as my whole car porch was all smokey!
Sunplay Sport UV Lotion SPF120 PA++++ (RM43.50 / 35g)
If you prefer the lotion version, Sunplay got you covered as well. In the new Sport range, there is a Sport UV Lotion version for the face and body. Personally, I prefer the Lotion version for the face. Not for the body though. I am not into spending half an hour applying sunscreen all over the body. That explains why I am slacking with sun protection whenever I am out running.
Comparing to the Sport UV Body Mist, this Sport UV Lotion has more scent to it. It is the usual scent in all Sunplay products. If you have been using Sunplay, you will know what scent I am talking about. Pretty pleasant on the nose I say.
The Lotion version is extremely watery. I did not expect it to be this watery. Kinda shocked me when I took it to the park with me that day. It is white in color but does not leave a white cast on the skin when it is fully absorbed. Just like the Body Mist version, this Lotion is also formulated with a quick dry formula with instant absorption on wet and dry skin condition. The texture is definitely more oily at first but quickly turned to dry velvety. Now, that is the right sunscreen consistency that I like! Perfect for a sweaty day out. As I sweat away, I did not see any white dripping. Just my sweat 😛
If you are looking for sun protection for sports or even if you need a higher SPF for being outdoor a lot, give these Sunplay Sport UV Body Mist and Lotion a try!
