The sun is out – don’t forget your sun cream!

eucerin-anti-ageing-sunfluid-review - 2Maybe I am overreacting with my title… it’s sort of out. Ish. Ok, ok. Should be out.

It’s that time of the year when we can finally feel some rays hitting our face and sadly, when people start thinking about wearing sun protection.

Truth is, it should be worn all year round and whereas in the winter the high SPF in my makeup is usually enough to keep me protected, in the summer a proper sun cream 30+ daily is a must.

Last summer I fell in love with Eucerin’s mattifying fluid and their tinted SPF.

This year I thought I’d stick with them, but they brought out the Sun Fluid Anti-Age and the Sun Cream Tinted CC, which have quickly become favourites in my routine.

The Eucerin Sun Fluid Anti-Age comes in SPF 30 and 50.

It has broadband UVA and UVB sun protection, it also counts with biological cell protection in the form of antioxidants glycyrrhethinic acid, which supports skin DNA protection and repair and licochalcone A, which helps protect skin against free radicals.

A serious protection and care product for everyday.

Now, talking about that, how about a bit of makeup? Well, a little bit!

Eucerin also brought out the Sun Cream Tinted CC. I’m a fan of their tinted SPF, so no wonder I’m into this one too!

With its huge 50+ SPF, it contains colour pigments for a natural, light and even cover. Perfect for the beach, pool or lazy makeup days.

It also behaves well under makeup, as its mattifying.

Just like the Sun Fluid, it contains UVA ABD UVB filters, glycyrrhethinic acid and licochalcone A, to protect and care for the skin.

Both are quickly absorbed, unperfumed, paraben-free, non-comedogenic and of course, suitable for sensitive skin.

The sun Eucerin Fluid Anti-Age costs £20 (available in SPF 30 and 50). The Sun Cream Tinted CC costs £18 and is available in light and medium.

You can find Eucerin in all major retailers nationwide.

Review: Eucerin Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF 30 and Sun Creme Tinted SPF 50+

IMG_3106This probably got mentioned before but I always block all sun from my face and correct the colour with makeup. I do that because I think it is just not worth taking sun on the face.

Eucerin has a fantastic line of sunscreens and their face products are not different. I was very happy to  try (and be using) their Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF 30 and Sun Creme Tinted SPF 50+.

Product review: Simple Kind to Skin+ Protecting moisture cream with SPF30

simple protecting moisturiser spf30After attending the Simple Skincare bloggers event, it was no secret the new Kind to Skin+ range product that I was most excited about was the Protecting moisture cream with SPF30 – obviously, because I love Simple face moisturisers, but mainly because it has a very decent sun protection, very handy for for a sun-from-face-blocking person like myself.

And this moisturiser didn’t disappoint me; it has become one of my daily staples. The cream is very light; it is quickly absorbed by the skin and sits really well under make up. It has no fragrance which I love – I always mention that on Simple products, but this is quite important to me!

It contains vitamins E and B3, glycerin and almond oil to nourish and protect the skin.

And best of all, it has a super SPF 30. Oh, wait – if you think it cannot get any better, its RRP is of only £6.99. Yes, you heard it right. A protecting day moisturiser  with a respectable SPF for less than £7. I am impressed. Very.

The Simple Kind to Skin+range is already available at Superdrug and is on offer for an amazing £4.99. Seriously, 1/3 off. Cannot be missed!

You can find more information on the Simple website.
