Perfect afternoon for a couple of hours at the beach! My days of laying in the sun are longggg gone. This past winter I had 4 large pre cancerous spots removed from body. So from now on you'll see me on the beach with a hat, under an umbrella and constantly reapplying SPF 50. Protect your skin kids!

Benton Papaya–S Sun Cream
SPF50+ / PA++++
Skin: Pale with yellow undertone. Oily, Acne-prone, currently suffering with breakouts and PIH.
Current weather: Hot with bouts of rain.
Squeeze tube in a minimalist design, very straightforward.
Thicker than Biorés face milk, which was my prev one. But still just like Bioré, it spreads well into the skin. Leaves a slight white cast, but it helps balance my skin tone because of all the redness I have with acne breakout. .
Scent: Lemony, resembles the aroma of a Brazo de Marcedes cake .
Being that my recent office hours begin in the wee hours of the morning, my use for this sun cream begins at the end of my shift just before going out in the scorching 1PM temperature even on a rainy season.
I apply a dollop all over my face and neck, above my makeup.
It spreads evenly, and makes my face look real greasy yet brighter.
Then I just top it with my powder foundation - wet sponge sprayed with Witch Hazel mist, and voila, freshhh. No caking, no pilling, just even touch up.
Lastly, I dab concealer on the still prominent dark spots.
I love how the Benton Papaya-S sun cream can give you full sun protection and better complexion at the same time with SPF50+/PA++++ and Papaya Fruit Water & Papaya Seed Oil contained.
And since my only outdoor activity when I tested this is my commute going home - crossing footbridges, walking through pedestrian lanes and waiting inside an open vehicle (we have jeepneys) made of steel, for at most 40 minutes, under the hot Philippine afternoon sun - I can say it did well.
It gave my skin a healthy glow, kept my makeup intact, and helped keep my sweat at bay because it repels water.
I can say it is really suitable for outdoor activities and if you play sports, being it is a 'For Sport' variant.
Possible repurchase for me, on a good price
