Remember when you were a kid and your mum would pin you down and slap sunscreen on you, whilst you struggled to get away and play with your friends? Well it seems not a lot changes when you grow up. We’re all in a hurry to get on with our days and like products that combine an SPF in with them.
But with new evidence showing that using an SPF on its own is more effective, how many of us are jumping at the chance to apply sunscreen?
Now if you’re a bit of a sun-worshipper, or want to keep your skin looking young and fresh for longer, or like me use acid toners which contain any form of AHA’s (for example the Clarins Exfoliating toner) than you should absolutely be using an SPF, no excuses. (FYI AHA’s can cause sun sensitivity, which means you’ll burn easier.)
I am someone that likes to care for my skin, albeit without spending 100’s of hours or pounds! I am also someone that rarely applies any kind of SPF, which is bad news. When I saw that Soap & Glory had released a new factor 50 SPF, I knew I should try it and was surprised when I loved it.
Packed inside an unassuming little white bottle, this SPF is designed to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays whilst caring for your skin with ingredients like vitamin C & E. With micro oil-absorbing powders which help mattify and control oil throughout the day, this super lightweight, translucent SPF is so comfortable on the skin, you barely know its there. It also has sun damage blocking ingredients to combat premature ageing and pigmentation. I think you’ll agree that this is pretty special for a drugstore SPF!
Priced at £15 but currently on sale here.
