Hey guys, if you’ve ever wondered why I don’t really review SPF30 sunscreens, today’s post should answer that. I’m not saying they are not effective. I’m just saying my paranoid self feels safer with SPF50+.
Shoutout to @sciencebecomesher for her excellent posts on sunscreen. She’s the main reason why I’m passionate about reviewing sunscreens. As a newbie to sunscreens, I learnt a lot from her blog and free sunscreen guide.
I made this post on Instagram coincidentally on the same day the whole #Purito scandal went down, I decided to make it into a video for my youtube followers. Enjoy!
