U might want to try Physician's Choice of Arizona aka PCA sunblock.
It will give you a nice dewy look. Smells great too.
Availabe at the medical clinic. For reference, pls email: sensasia@singnet.com.sg

well the one i tried is from clarsin. quite good but depending on your budget. however, there was this article that says there is no such thing as total sun block. can't block it all. either you get tanned or burn. SPF doesn't help either. whatever it is you still get tan... :(

The usual suspects like Coppertone, Hawaiian Tropic, Nivea Sun usually contain chemical absorbers like PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), Padimate-O (Octyl dimethyl paba) and/or Oxybenzone (Benzophenones).

None of this is good for you. Immediately after application they are absorbed by your body. And it's not as though physical blockers like Titanium or Zinc Oxide are good for you either. At the end of the day it is still artificial.

If you must, try natural sunscreens like Natural Tanning Formula. www.nattan.com

I was introed to it when I was in Waikiki.

Downside is max is SPF25 and you got to mail-order this stuff from US cos no one here brings this in.

I used this Sun Block in Batam at 12pm & Mt Kinabalu-no

I used this Sun Block in Batam at 12pm & Mt Kinabalu peak abt 10am (very hot!) - no burns, no tan.

I missed a spot when I was swimming in Batam at 12 noon and at that spot, I was burnt and red. The rest - as if I had not been swimming at noon. I myself was amazed at how effective the Nu Skin SunRight is. Plus, it's non-greasy.

I'm a distributor of Nu Skin and proud of it coz the products work!

Buy the prod here or if it's too "internetty", call my colleague on how to get the prod. Jackie - 93878005.

I'm in Jakarta right now so can't help you if you're in Singapore.
