When I headed to a sunny island holiday, I realized that I’d be out and about frolicking in the sun so I packed my sunblock arsenal, and in there, I tossed this mist spray sunblock. I’d never used a spray sunblock before so this would be interesting. I figured it would make it easier (and more fun) to re-apply my sunblock, instead of rubbing the usual creamy white lotion all over – something I tend to get lazy with.
The Mentholatum Sunplay UV Body Mist Sunblock has been around a while, and it proclaims an impossibly high SPF80. If you look at the Sunplay series of sunscreen, they all boast very impossibly high SPF numbers. I’m never quite sure if it can really go that high to be honest. I’m not good at these things. I usually stick to SPF50 and anything over that is a bonus.
Application is easy peasy. It is an aerosol can, so just spray the fine mist all over your body, ensuring you cover every inch. The directions say you can also spray it on your face, but if you plan to, please make sure you close your eyes 😛 The spray mist is clear and cooling on the skin which is really nice in the heat of the sun. But really, do I like this?
