Affordable Sunscreens under Php 500

Today let’s talk about sunscreens. For a couple of years now I’ve been using sunscreen as part of
my skincare routine and something I did wish I used sooner. Sunscreens are known to be a must have skincare item. It protects your skin's appearance and health at any age. If used regularly, sunscreen does not only prevent sunburn and premature aging, it also combats skin cancer.

But sunscreens can be pricier compared to other steps in a skincare regimen. So in this post I’ll share some of the most affordable sunscreens under Php 500 you need to try.

Let’s start with the sunscreens I’ve already tried as follows:

Vaseline Tone Up Cream - Php 399

The Vaseline Tone Up Sun Cream SPF 40 is what I’ve been currently using almost through. I got it early this year for 50% off and I wish I bought two already because it’s too pricey. It gives the skin a tone up feeling, not sticky and dries matte. I also don’t see visible white casts that other sunscreens have.
