The sunscreen with the highest SPF I’ve ever used is SPF50PA+++, never gone beyond that until now. Sunplay Super Block SPF130PA+++ comes with Solarex-3 technology which claims to provide more powerful and long lasting protection against UVA and UVB.
This sunscreen contains hyaluronic acid to help replenish and lock in moisture. It’s a very lightweight and fluid sunscreen which has a similar texture to the Hada Labo sunscreen. Sunplay Super Block SPF130PA+++ is ideal for long hours of outdoor or water activities as it is very water proof.
It’s formulated to suit Asian skin and can be used on the face and body. This sunscreen feels very hydrating once it’s been applied but I wonder if consumers may prefer the other Sunplay sunscreen – Sunplay Watery Cool with menthol SPF65PA+++ because there was only one left on the shelf at Watsons Pavilion when I went to browse a couple of days ago whereas there were plenty of Sunplay Super Block SPF130PA+++ left.
Both sunscreens are RM35.90 but they are currently on discount at Watsons with Sunplay Super Block SPF130PA+++ priced at RM28.70 and Sunplay Watery Cool priced at RM30.52. Now I wonder why a sunscreen with higher SPF would be more discounted than one with a lower SPF? Perhaps it has something to do with the cooling menthol effect of the Sunplay Watery Cool?
