Being pregnant, I’ve been really careful with the products I’m using. During my first trimester, I actually didn't want to use just any product at all. I am just too lazy to apply anything on my body and it's already a tedious work for a momma ongoing through a lot of hormonal changes.
Good thing my second trimester was a bit easier than the first because I became less sensitive with the smell. During my first, I used a mint shampoo from Human Heart Nature because it's the only smell I can take during shower. My soaps and other products were all unscented. I hate the smell of everything, coffee, roasted garlic, perfumes among others. I can't even take being in the restroom for 5 minutes. I have terrible morning (afternoon and evening) sickness at that time.
For my last semester, I can say I have moved past all that. I can smell everything now. Thus I need to go back to my skin routine with caution. I still check if the products were safe for me and baby. My skin just feels so dry recently that why I needed to go back little by little. One of the few products I tried is a sunscreen from Dermax which is the Dermax Professional UV Active Water-Burst Sunscreen. I tried it and I feel that it works great for me.
I got this product last year when I subscribed for a sample at Sample Room. It was sitting tightly in my box unused and I only just used it recently because I needed a sunscreen that would suit my skin needs during this pregnancy. I still have other sunscreen sitting in my shelf though but I wanted to try something else that would be nicer to my skin. I found this.
What I like about this product is that it's super hydrating. Maybe that's why it's called Water-Burst sunscreen after all. It has SPF 45+ and has a PA +++ which is totally great because it has intense protection. I totally liked it because after application, it sits on the skin automatically after a minute of just for a few seconds. No irritating feeling of putting sticky lotions or sunscreen and no need to wait before it sits comfortably on the skin.
With its gentle sunscreen ingredients that protects against UVA and UVB rays, it provides protection to my skin especially that I’m feeling twice the heat because of my pregnancy.
The product was slim and very handy that you can bring it anywhere. It's also a pump so it's a plus factor since you don't have to dispense the product by squeezing the bottle. I love pumps! Who isn't? :)
The consistency was very light that you'll feel you are just putting water. I think this is the lightest sunscreen I have used my entire life. It might be pricey for P720 for a 50 ml. They also have a smaller one for you to try first which is the 30 ml tube for P475. I swear by this product! Highly recommended!

Overall, this is a product I would love to use again! Might take a little sacrifice though for it's price because it's almost 50% higher than my normal sunscreen. Still, I would love to get this over and over again. If you're looking for the perfect sunscreen for you, this might fit in your lifestyle. Give it a try and see the results! :)
