Q&A: What 's the best eye cream and sunblock for the face and body? | ASK & WIN A PRIZE!1/05/2012Shen Gee
I received this inquiry mail from Crisel 2 days ago.. :)
My Answer:"Hello Ms. Shen! May i ask what are the best eye cream and sunblock for face and the body? .... I have combination skin. I want a cream or sunblock that doesn't make me feel oily. Thanks help me. :D"
Hi Crisel and to anyone who has the same question she does,
First, on the eye cream recommendation:
The Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-on is a great eye skincare. For Php299, you really have a decent way of depuffing the baggies and lightening the dark undereyes, thanks to the cooling metal ball and caffeine ingredients. That's the yellow one in the photo if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet.
If you're on for a splurge, try Eyeliplex-2 from Goodskin Labs. I've never seen an eye cream work so fast as this one. But when I say splurge, it's about Php2200+.
It comes with a day and night eye-cream. The green gel is for daytime for eye care and protection; and the cream one is for night time which is more potent. You are getting what you paid for with this product for sure.
There are more undereye care products out there but these two are the ones that I use the most. I use my mini Hydrating Eye Cream from Bobbi Brown for travelling as I find it's more potent when there's a change in environ or when in an extremely cold hotel room. Also, it's great for late night outs when I only have two hour sleep.
Now on to the Sunblock for the face:
Since you mentioned that you have combination and have trouble with your current sunblock isn't fit for your oily face, I suggest you try something I've been using for quite awhile now. It's the Belo Prescriptives Sunblock Gel that I got from the Belo Medical Clinic for Php369.60. It lasts for a month or so, depending on usage but this doesn't trigger oiliness as fast as other sunblocks for me.
I know exactly what you mean about oiling up just an hour or two after application. I seriously think that there's hardly a cure to our oily T-zones so a blotting paper and this sunblock gel.
I think you can also purchase sunblock gel from your own dermatologist if you have one. I notice that whenever I would purchase sunblocks from actual dermatologists, it always comes in clear gel form.
I hope this post answered all your questions ans should you have more questions, don't hesitate to shoot me another email! Have fun in your journey to finding great products that will work for your skin and thanks for making me a part of it. :)
