Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.

What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.

What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Great day eye cream

I love this eye cream for the day. The fact that it has spf and is such I lightweight not greasy and sits well under makeup. I have only been using for a short time and haven’t seen any big improvement yet, but I am very happy knowing I have the extra spf because my last eye cream didn’t have this.

SPF, although essential, can really be a drag to get right. I've been using this product for most of the summer, and I adore it. It applies easily and smells ok. I like the glossy look on my face but others might not. I feel like the added antioxidant value has improved my skins texture (it's the only change in my product line-up). I have fair, dry skin that would normally burn at the very mention...

Stick It Out

Okay, firstly, let's get the bad out of the way... the smell is... not great. Also, my skin struggled for the first week or so, a bit of a break out, I almost gave up on it!
Now my skin seems to do really well with it so it must've been an adjustment period or a coincidence!

BUT, the main thing that kept me going was how kind it is to my eyes! It seems to stay put really well, ...
