What Travels With You: VMV Armada Giveaway

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Being a sun worshiper, beach junkie and surfing fanatic, I'm out in the sun- A LOT. And here's proof of that:

-The first thing people say to me is "You're so dark!".
-I've been asked several times "Are you preparing for a triathlon?" even though I don't run or bike.
-Almost all my photos are either taken on the beach or in the sun.

Yes, you can say I'm a girl who lives in the land of Forever Summer. 

Lois Surfing in Baler, Philippines

I haven't really been paying much attention to sun damage or skin care until very recently on my last trip to Indonesia. I was surfing as usual and was waiting for a wave when I got to chitchat with another girl surfer from Hawaii. She looked very impressive and graceful on the water. I asked her "Wow! You're a great surfer! How long have you been surfing?". She answered "15 years. I started when I was 15." That answer took me by surprise! Not because she must have spent so much time surfing to get to that skill level. But I was doing the math in my head. 15 + 15= 30. She was only 30 years old. But when I looked at her, I honestly thought she was already in her early 40s!

And then it dawned on me: SUN DAMAGE! Yikes!

Wrinkles, sun spots and darkening are the things I have to watch out for if I'm out in the sun a lot. That's why I've been through quite a lot of sunscreen brands. But I've never stuck to just one. A few days ago, I got to try VMV Armada Sport 70 for the first time and I think I've found The One! Here's why I liked it so much:

1 SPF 70 is one of the highest sun protection factor that I can get in one product. It gives extreme protection for extreme outdoor conditions. It's also very water resistant- perfect for surfing and water sports!

2 I can use it for both face and body which is convenient for this light packer.

3 It has a defensive-line formula that creates an invisible "second skin," that stays on whether I'm in or out of water and and even when I'm exposed to harsh sun and heat.

4 The texture is exceptionally smooth and light. It's comfortable on my skin and doesn't stain my bikini or rash guard.

5 It comes in different sizes. I can keep a bigger bottle or choose a travel size that I can take on flights.
