Peter Thomas Roth Protects Your Skin with Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Sunblock SPF30

Will I sound like a nagging grandmother if I told you again that you must put on sunblock every day, before you expose yourself in the sun? Harmful UV rays speed up our skin’s ageing process. If you don’t put on sunblock, even anti ageing products can’t help you much. I have always been diligent in applying SPF30 or SPF50 on my face. I was using the Neutrogena one for my body and then I stopped. It slipped my mind. Bad excuse, I know.

 

Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Sunblock SPF30 is fragrance free and is enriched with anti-oxidants and vitamins A, C and E. I have been using this on my arms, neck and chest, areas exposed to the sun, and I absolutely love it. It absorbs quickly into the skin, without any greasiness. For some sunblocks, I’d still feel like there is a veil of some sort on my skin, but with this, I do not feel anything. It’s even better and lighter than the Neutrogena one that I wrote about more than a year ago. However, when in contact with water, skin feels a little slippery.

 

 

This bottle is quite big (note photo below) with 118 grams of sunblock in it. The texture is like white gel but applies like cream. It is light without the heavy thickness of your usual sunblock. There is a strong traditional sunblock scent, which I actually like very much. It takes me back to when I was teenager, when my crush back then smelled like sunblock. Hahaha!

 

 

We had a family outing just recently, and I brought this with me. All 4 of us put this on, re-applied after we sweat profusely, and I tell you, we all loved it! Nobody felt sticky and nobody got tanned or burned. We even applied this on our face. While I prefer my sunblock for face to be more matte, this didn’t feel too greasy either. My fussy skin did not chuck a fit so we’re all happy 🙂 I know some of you love the ingredient list, so I blew it up for you. It’s really quite small in real life.

 

 

I bought this when there were special discounts on strawberryNet. I ended paying only about RM70 for this tube. I think it’s money well spent. I am still using it daily and I re-apply before I go out for lunch.

Do you use sunblocks for your body? What are you using?

    I have not tried this product but I think this is pretty cool.

    Thanks for this honest review anyway.

    • You’re welcome Althea 🙂

    I don’t use sunblock on the body on a daily basis, only when I’m on a trip to the beach or any theme parks. I use the neutrogena one, forgot what’s the full name for it though.

    Anyway, wanted to ask you something totally irrelevant. Will the Chanel’s sculpting veil in Notorious be available in Malaysia?

    • I’m trying to use it on my arms because I drive around. About Notorious, I’m also wondering! Let me ask around and get back to you!

    • Hey, found out it is available here but only at One Utama and Pavillion.

    Decleor! It comes in a pump, spf 15 or 39… Smells heavenly! Its a cream that isnt greasy at all but quite thick. Try it someday?

    • Oh thanks for the recommendation! I’ll definitely give it a go once I’m done with this. Thanks again 🙂

  • I’ve always thought this sounded great, but to be honest I don’t believe in spending much on body sunblock. Facial sunblock is a different story…it’s SO hard to find the perfect one!!

    • I’ve always been lazy in applying sunblock on my body even though I never leave the house without sunblock on my face. However, after listening to a doctor speak about skin conditions, I started applying it on my arms. It’s the place which is exposed to the sun the most, and most neglected. I don’t want dark sun spots on my arms before I hit 50!!

    Just last week I sunburnt my arms…. bad me for thinking it’s been raining and cloudy whole day, I’ll apply my sunblock later…. BIG BIG Mistake ! not only my arms are red, they swell like buns fresh from the oven. Someone knock my head please ( coz I’ve sunburnt my feet b4 and that they swell like 2 big pink “mi-ku” bun ) !!!

    • Oh dear! I hope you have some aloe vera gel. It’s very good for sunburns. You apply a thick layer on your skin and just let it sit as long as you can. It cools down the surface fast, and you won’t peel as badly. I hope you’ll get better soon!!

        Thank goodness I remembered to bring along a soothing cream from previous GWP. The swelling, the redness and the burning itch totally subside on the 3rd day as compared to more than 7 days of my previous sunburnt records… ^.^

        • Oh dear, good to know. It would be painful otherwise 🙁
