Ocean Potion Suncare: Skin Protection All Year Round

When in Manila, you’d be surprised by how hot and sunny the months from February to July really are. How will one be able to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Palawan, for instance, if you’re ill equipped in the suncare department?


 Are you ready to spend much of your time out in the beach with barely anything covering your precious skin?


Heck, how can anyone enjoy this view after climbing Ugong Rock without a good dose of sunblock?

Enter Ocean Potion‘s products.

You know what they say, it’s all fun and games until someone gets an awful sunburn. For a sunscreen brand that has been available in the Philippines for a few years, Ocean Potion has already established itself as a trustworthy  provider of sun care products enriched with sea botanicals and antioxidant vitamins that keep your skin protected and nourished anytime.  The company’s products are all formulated, manufactured and imported directly from the USA. 


At Palawan’s beautiful Sabang Beach

 With May known worldwide as the month for skin cancer awareness, When In Manila presents the top five Ocean Potion products locally available. When used regularly as directed (i.e. reapplication done faithfully every 80 minutes), these products help prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun’s harmful rays.


Ocean Potion’s lotion and mist with SPF 50 have both been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

This broad spectrum, anti-aging sunblock contains Solaplex to enhance the stability of the active sunscreen ingredient avobenzone. Boasting a SPF of 50, this produce provides higher sun UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection.

Of course, apart from providing higher sun protection against UVA I, UVA II and UVB rays, this sunscreen nourishes your skin with Vitamins A, C, and E that aid in the reduction of cell damaging free radicals.



The product has a thick consistency and glides on the skin smoothly. It also has a sweet scent that reminds me of bubblegum-flavored candies. 


Before and After: Arm prior to trip to Palawan on the left, and arm after trip to Palawan on the right.


If you much prefer spraying a thin layer of sunscreen on your body, then you can try this instant dry mist from Ocean Potion. Its new and improved formula is similar to that of the anti-aging sunscreen mentioned above. Just like what its label claims, it is indeed capable of drying within seconds of application.

With regular use, this mist can prevent sunburn and even decrease the risk of skin cancer and premature aging.
