I am looking for a good facial SPF to add to my daily skincare routine, as well as one for the body to use in the summer/ for hols. I hate it when they feel greasy on the face and particularly if they pill/ ruin makeup. Does anyone have any reccs? My skin can be fairly dry but been I’ve been told it’s combination.
I am super pale so lather in factor 50 without fail and I know how important it is to help stop ageing. I’ve found that using a pre holiday tan accelerator cream actually stopped me from burning so badly last time! Has anyone used any other good ones? I used the Gatineau one. I know you can get supplements that do the same as I have some Dr Barbara Sturm ones I was given.
Thank you in advance x
I swear by La Roche Pose’s Anthelios SPF for face - it’s light but moisturising.
I also burn so easily and hate to say it, but SPF50 and shade bathing is the way forward! I would personally be wary of any creams that claim to accelerate a tan, but this Heliocare supplement will give you more protection from within!
Thank you Tor. Agreed re being hesitant around products that accelerate tan (I never tan anyway - well off white is the shade!) but it did seem to work and I noticed a difference! This was it… Tan Accelerating Lotion – Gatineau Skincare
Ahh I haven’t ever tried these two so that’s fab x
For body, I have to say I really like Vichy’s SPF range. I MUST sing the praises of the Milky Sun Protection Spray from Rituals, too. I also burn easily and struggle to tan but this felt so lovely upon application & even felt I could go down to SPF30. As it is a mist it’s easy to apply without ending up with too much product everywhere. The smell immediately transports me to holiday mode! I have hardly ever burnt with these. x
This Dermalogica one melts into the face so quickly and is not oily, I also have hyper-sensitive skin and have had no issues with this one: Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 50ml - LOOKFANTASTIC
