    "For most mothers like me, I always take into account the price of skincare products that I use. I used to buy sunscreens for the face that are worth less than $10. But then one of my friends told me to invest in my skin because I am not getting any younger. And so I gave this a try and so far, I have been using this for months now and I have observed significant changes. It is a good primer that really sets well and the SPF is great too!"

    "I really believe that sunscreen is non-negotiable. I had to undergo a minor skin treatment last year to remove my acne scars and part of the process is to avoid getting direct UV rays from the sun because it would worsen the case and so I religiously swore by this sunscreen and voila, been acne-free for over 6 months now. Recommending this spf for face!"

    "When it comes to my skin, I am more willing to splurge a lot if I know that it will help. So far, Elizabeth Arden has done quite changes in my skin. For one, I noticed the subtle disappearance of fine lines, especially in the neck area. Please, the sun is the number one aging agent out there so protect your skin with sunscreen."

    "Okay, I go to work everyday and that means I also put a lot of makeup on my face so I suggest this sunblock cream for those who regularly layer their skin with makeup and like to keep it lightweight. This gives a matte finish--that's a plus! Thank you!"

    "Summer is coming so if you want your skin to still breathe amidst all the layers of moisturizers, sunscreens, and foundations that you put, I say you try this gel-type sunscreen. Not really endorsing their product but it worked for me as it doesn't leave my face greasy."

    "This is unique among all other sunscreens because of its applicator. This is a tinted sunscreen but doesn't give a full coverage so don't expect it to cover any blemish because again, this is skincare more than makeup. Nice spf level too! "

    "I love the SPF 50 and the medium coverage it gives me. People would always ask me what's a CC cream for and what's the difference between BB and CC cream. For those who are still curious, CC cream aims to even out the skin tone rather than providing good coverage."
