BABOR Anti-Aging Sun Care Sun Spray Lotion SPF15

I received the BABOR Anti-Aging Sun Care Sun Spray Lotion SPF15 a couple of weeks ago at a lovely event and put it away in a drawer. I was saving it for summer. See, I don’t do sunscreen very well. I have discovered great ones over the years, but I still struggle to apply it every single day. Most sunscreens feel so heavy on my skin. On days that I know I’ll be out in the sun, I will most definitely make sure that my skin is protected. On other days, not so much. Two weeks ago I went for a facial peel and I am currently testing an anti-pigmentation product, and I knew that I better make sure to protect my skin as it is extra sensitive to the damaging rays at the moment. The BABOR Sun Spray Lotion was the first one I reached for the day after the peel. BABOR, you make me happy. This product is care and luxury at its best. The BABOR Anti-Aging Sun Care Sun Spray Lotion SPF15 is pure gold. It is super light and moisturising and it creates a perfectly smooth base for my foundation. As a bonus, it not only protects your skin, it is also anti-aging. ‘The anti-aging complex additionally protects cellular DNA and contains the potent radical quenchers vitamin E and vitamin C encapsulated in an intelligent spherical carrier. This becomes porous when exposed to UV rays, and activates the vitamins. At the same time, an extract of cassia didimobotrya wraps itself around the cell like a protective mantle.’ This beauty retails at R490 for a super convenient 200ml...

Bioderma KID SPF 50+ Review

Cara’s eczema-prone skin is extremely sensitive and I have to be wary of the sun creams that I apply. We tried out the Bioderma KID SPF 50+ Milk over the holidays and we love it. It is non-greasy and it does not irritate her skin at all. It was her 4th birthday party over the weekend and we had a pool party. My mom made sure that all the kids were protected and the KID SPF 50+ Milk was really put to the test (we actually finished the tube). The kids spent the whole day in the hot sun and in the water and none of them complained of itchy skin or burny eyes, and no one was sun burnt. This is a brilliant sun protection cream and we highly recommend it! RRP249.95. xoxo   *Disclaimer: This product was sent to me for review purposes.

Vichy Capital Soleil Hydrating Milk and BB Cream review

Summer is sorted. Why? Because we now have Vichy Capital Soleil Hydrating Milk SPF50+. This gorgeous sun protection cream has a SPF 50+ and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types and can be applied to the face and body. It’s water resistant, hypoallergenic, fragrance and paraben free. I’ve tried it on myself and Cara’s delicate skin and we had no reaction. It absorbs quickly, leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and leaves no greasiness behind. It just feels like a great moisturiser. According to Vichy it offers stem cell protection and protects against sun spots and sun induced wrinkles. If you want a healthy glow without the damage, this is the product you want. This massive tube retails for R399. I really think that a great price as this should last you all summer. Did I mention that it comes in a huge 300ml tube?! I was very excited to try the two Vichy BB creams. I’m not a huge fan of BB creams as I prefer a bit more coverage, but who can say no to optimal protection whilst having a beautiful glow when you’re by the pool? Vichy offers two variations – BB Tinted Velvety Cream SPF 50+ for normal to dry skin and BB Tinted Dry Touch Face Fluid SPF 50 for combination to oily skins. They retail for R279. Both products come in a natural tan shade, contains a SPF 50, provides a beautiful glow to the skin and evens out your skin tone. I have been using the BB Tinted Velvety Cream and it gives my skin an immediate glow (like...

Sun safety with Justine Solartec

Justine’s new suncare range, Solartec Skincare, was launced on 1 September and the range contains all the products you need to protect against the harsh summer rays. ‘Put your best face forward this summer with the new Solartec Age Defence for Face formulated with the advanced SolarTec-3 Technology and a blend of six botanical extracts.’ This range is said to prevent sun damage with UVA / UVB protection, repair 50% of existing cell damage in just 24hours and it protects against free radicals caused by the sun. Solartec Skincare Age Defence for Age SPF30 is a light weight cream that instantly absorbs into the skin. It doesn’t leave any greasy residue and my skin is left with a pretty glow. I think this product will be perfect for all skin types. Normal price – R240 for 75ml. Solartec Skincare Body Lotion contains a SPF40 and is a water resistant formula. It is not too thick and it doesn’t feel heavy or too greasy on my skin. It did leave a bit of a white sheen and tackiness behind for a little while, but I presume that is because it is water resistant. Once fully absorbed it felt very comfortable on my skin and the tackiness disappeared completely. Normal price – R245 for 125ml. Solartec Skincare Active Sun Protection Spray SPF50 is my favourite product from the range. It comes in an aerosol spray can and the product comes out as a watery foam. It spreads very well and my skin is left feeling smooth and soft with a beautiful sheen. It doesn’t feel like a sunscreen at all; just...
