Extreme protection for extreme outdoor conditions. Impressive PFAs 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, photoaging and hyperpigmentation. Defensive-line formula creates a unique “barrier-film,” an invisible virtual “second skin,” that stays on 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.
This review is for VMV Hypoallergenic’s Armada Sport 70–a sunscreen with an SPF of 70 that is said to provide full-spectrum protection with a light formula.
The Armada Sport suncreen contains Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (more commonly known as Avobenzone), which protects against UVA rays, and Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate and Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonic Acid to protect against UVB rays.
VMV Hypoallergenics’ formula for this sunscreen is unparallelled. I think I can fairly classify myself as a sunscreen junkie: I have dozens of sunscreens from different companies that each have their own formula, texture, pros, and cons. But the Aramda Sport formula is the most pleasant I’ve come across. It’s extremely light-weight on the skin and thin in consistency without being runny.
It has absolutely no sticky, greasy, or oily texture. It’s lighter-feeling on the skin than 95% of the light-weight body lotions and face moisturizers I own. I’m really not sure how this sunscreen is so undetectable on the skin, but it is. It also has no smell to it.
If you’re someone who detests the feel or smell of sunscreen, this is your solution. And if you’re someone who wears sunscreen on the regular, this is a great one to try out. You’ll find your skin is protected as you forget you’ve applied anything at all.
