Skinceuticals Ultra Facial Defense SPF50
This Ultra Facial Defense SPF 50 protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, known to cause premature skin ageing. Formulated with state-of-the-art UV filters, this high protection sunscreen helps prevent UV induced collagen breakdown and UV-induced dark spots. I really love the lightweight formula that absorbs super easy leaving the skin deeply moisturised.
Saltee SPF50 Daily Protection Formula
We tested this new British brand and we are positively surprised by the results. Saltee’s Daily Protection Formula is suncare as skincare with UVA and UVB protection– light enough for daily wear when you’re still dreaming of yournext trip and strong enough to protect in the sun. Can also be used as a skin primer with or without make-up for a glowing, summer, scandi-sheen.
Ultrasun Face Tinted SPF50
Tinted anti-ageing formula – as a busy mum, I am a huge fan of all the all-in-one skincare and sun protection products. This one is beautifully lightweight, but offering heavy duty UVA, UVB and Infrared. This easy-to-apply moisturiser can be used in place of your normal day cream and is formulatedwith a hint of colour, in two shades to suit all skin types. The high tech formulation effortlessly glides onto skin and contains light reflecting particles and revolutionary anti-ageing enzyme Ectoin. This fabulous tinted moisturiser also contains Vitamin E to smooth, moisturise and revitalise the skin and GSP-T a complex that effectively neutralises skin damaging free radical activity stimulated by exposure to the sun.
Vitamin Injections Vitamin Infused SPF30 Face Protector
What’s not to love about the Vitamin Infused Face Protector? A broad-spectrum SPF of 30 provides daily protection from the sun whilst skin-conditioning Vitamin E gets to work throughout the day to nourish and hydrate. This punchy antioxidant packed lotion also offers anti-pollution benefits to the skin and can be worn alone or under makeup. We are in love.

The Solar Defence SPF 50 is something more than just a typical face blocker. It is a sunscreen with corrective benefits. Its principal active ingredients are Zinc and Titanium Dioxide, which prevent the sun ‘s rays from penetrating the dermis. It also contains Alpha Arbutin, a skin brightening agent.
