Review – VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70

Today, i’d like to introduce another VMV favourite of mine; and that is the VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70 sunscreen. The Armada range is an award-winning product line that provides full-spectrum protection against both outdoor and indoor visible and infrared light.

The Sport 70 is one of their best-selling products around the world. This powerful protector is well-loved by many for its wow-inducing lightweight comfort and efficacy even in extreme outdoor conditions.

Pdt Information:
– Impressive PFAs (Protection Factor UVA) are combined with SPFs as high as 70-90 to effectively screen out UVA and UVB rays for active protection against sun-induced skin cancer, photo-aging and hyperpigmentation.
– Creates a unique “barrier-film,” an invisible virtual “second skin,” that stays on the skin’s surface to maintain protection integrity in and out of water, and while exposed to harsh sun and heat.
– Soft, skin-coating silicones give this barrier-film an exceptionally smooth glide and keep it light, so skin stays comfortable.

Validated Hypoallergenic: VH-74/76 (sans common allergens: extended allergen series North American Contact Dermatitis Group + standard allergen series European Surveillance System of Contact Allergies)

Very Water-Resistant, for All Skin Types.

My thoughts:

This product comes in the form of a tube with a screw cap, i much prefer a snap cap for convenience sake. But it’s not really a big deal. What’s really a big deal (to me anyway!) is that this is possibly the only sunscreen with SPF 70 that i’ve used before. The highest that i’ve used before this was SPF 50 i think. But it’s comforting to know that it is water resistant and that i’m well protected by UVA AND UVB rays too with the Armada Sport 70.  The texture is very light, and it spreads easily. I LOVE that it doesn’t leave a white cast at all, and there are no unpleasant smells. It is absorbed quickly into the skin as well, leaving it feeling soft and moisturized.

My go-to sunblock previously was from Avene, another brand that caters to people with sensitive skin. I’ve been using it on and off for years actually, until i started using a primer over it. When i applied the primer over the sunscreen from Avene, the 2 products would kind of separate and form white patches on my skin. I then had to spend more time trying to blend them out so that my liquid foundation can be applied smoothly. With the Armada 70, i don’t face this problem. My face primer glides on smoothly, with no issues.

The Armada Sport 70 has slowly but surely won my heart over, and it is officially my favourite sunscreen. I was using the tube from the starter kit, and have since emptied it already. Need to replenish ASAP! You may like to read my earlier review about the VMV Hydra Balance Smart Cleansing Scrub here.
