Product Review: VMV Armada Face and Body Shield SPF 60


Product Description:


The most comprehensive protection, with some of the highest protection factors ever against the full spectrum of skin-harming light: indoor and outdoor UVA, UVB, Infrared and Visible Light.
Impressive power in a weightless, anti-oxidant cream that's friendly to all skin types.
When used everyday, indoors and out, also helps lighten melasma.
Protects against melasma, sun-induced skin cancer, photo-aging, and other photo-induced damage.



Active Ingredients:
Zinc Oxide, Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, 4-Methylbenzylidene Camphor.
Other Ingredients:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Tromethamine, Glyceryl Laurate, PVP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Tetrasodium EDTA, Aluminum Hydroxide, *Tocopheryl Acetate, Zirconium Dioxide.

VMV Armada has been my dream sunblock since college, but it was never within my budget. The Armada linke of VMV has always been part of its bestsellers, so sales are hard to come by. Thankfully, after I started working, I chanced upon a 2-hour sale of the Armada line in a VMV boutique, so of course I had to try it.

PROS
  • Offers a comprehensive indoor and outdoor light protection
  • Doesn't feel greasy at all
  • Dries quickly
  • Didn't give me breakouts
CONS
  • The zinc oxide ingredient has a whitish cast. Even if I put a small amount only, I still get a whitish cast that's why I don't like to use it when I'm not wearing makeup
  • Expensive at more than P1000 (I forgot the exact price)

Will I repurchase? Maybe. The comprehensive protection is great, but the whitish cast makes it hard to work with. The price is a bit prohibitive too.

I've recently learned that a sunblock with SPF 30 and has zinc oxide is sufficient for UVA/UVB protection. I think what's important is the frequency of application because the protection wears off in 1-2 hours and amount of product applied (there is a minimum amount that needs to be applied.) plus, you'll want to apply something that's grease-free so you'll slather on the right amount. if a sunblock doesn't do all that and sells, that's just hype. i've been curious with VMV products but always think twice thinking maybe it's just all hype.
