I have spent these past five days at the seaside. And what better oportunity than to test some of Gerovital’s H3 Derma+ sunscreen products! I used them every day of my stay and now I’m ready to share with you my thoughts on them!
Gerovital H3 Derma+ Sunscreen Milk SPF 30 :
The milk is an excellent means to protect skin from the harmful effects of the ultraviolet radiations: premature aging, excessive dehydration, wrinkles, pigmentation spots and can be successfully used for the prevention of solar intolerances, photodermatoses. Hypoallergenic. For sensitive skin. The milk has a light and pleasant, non-greasy, water-resistant texture. Contains no oxybenzone (200ml).
The natural Inca omega eco-certified oil, rich in omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids, restores the integrity of the protective lipid layer, normalizes the keratinization process, improves the degree of hydration. Vitamin E from its composition has moisturising effects, improves skin appearance and improves the oxygen exchange in the tissues. Respects the EU recommendations for protection against the harmful effects of UVA / UVB radiations.
Directions for use : Products with sun protection factor (SPF) are chosen based on the type of skin. Apply the product evenly on the dry and clean skin 15-30 minutes prior to sun exposure.
- Avoid eye contact.
- Reapply frequently (especially after showering, sweating, swimming and wiping with a towel) even if the time is cloudy.
- Do not expose nurslings and infants to sunlight.
- Avoid sun exposure between 11 a.m and 3 p.m. Do not stay very
long in the sun even if you are using a solar protection product;
overexposure is a serious threat to the health.
- Use clothing protection (hat, sunglasses, T-shirt). In order to
obtain the protection indicated by the SPF, apply 2 mg /cm², that is
approx. 36 grams (6 full teaspoons) for the body of an adult. Caution: reducing the quantity will lower the level of protection significantly.
I liked its milky texture and the protection it gave to my skin (I didn’t experience any skin allergies to the sun or burns). It has a runny texture and a specific smell that all sunscreen products have.
What I didn’t like was that it didn’t absorb rapidly into the skin. Besides the good protection and moisturization, I really love a product that absorbs rapidly into the skin. The product took quite a long time to massage into the skin (even if I used a small quantity – this way the protection is not enough).
The cap opens by pushing one side and the product is released through the other side. Unfortunately this cap is not travel friendly; it leaked into my bag (fortunately I always put my liquids into plastic containers, only the container and the other products got wet).
You can find it in stores at the price of aprox. 40.18 ron /9.13 euros.
Taking all of these into consideration I give it the C grade (not the cheapeast, it doesn’t absorb fast into the skin, not very travel-friendly).
Gerovital H3 Derma+ After Sun Repair Gel :
It is especially designed to renew the barrier function of dehydrated skin due to UV radiations aggression. Face and body use. Hypoallergenic. Decongests and soothes. Contains no oxybenzone. (150ml, valability 6 months).
The content of natural eco-certified Inca omega oil, rich in omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids restores the integrity of the protective hydrolipid layer, normalizes the water content of dehydrated skin, deeply regenerates skin. The eco-certified extract Zanthalene®, obtained from the fruits of Sichuan pepper, soothes burns and quickly diminishes any discomfort. E vitamin ensures anti-oxidative protection against free radicals.
It has a slightly sweet smell and a runny texture. It feels lightweight onto the skin and it absorbs rapidly. My skin felt moisturized and comfortable after using it. I didn’t have any skin reactions to it.
You can find it in stores at the price of aprox. 19.34 ron/ 4.40 euros.
In conclusion, I give the Gerovital H3 Derma+ After Sun Repair Gel the B grade (good moisturiser, it calms the skin down, fast absorbing, affordable price; the downside : the perfume in the ingredient list is potentially irritating to the skin). Until next time , Love, M
