I hope you are all having a lovely week and a great SUMMER! Here in Malta, it is boiling hot to the point that I get scared when I know that I will have to drive my car round 10 am until 5 pm! My car isn’t Malta Summer Friendly!
As Summer has fully arrived, the UV rays become more harmful to our skin. Therefore, we need to get our sun protection on! I have recently started using the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun cream from Vichy which has SPF 50.
Now I do not quite fancy sun creams or sunblocks – they are always so sticky (but it is very IMPORTANT that you apply it during the SUMMER TIME). And if you are like me and first you apply your makeup and then apply suns cream, then forget the time that you worked on your look, because it usually will get messed up by the sunblock.
However, recently I have been given the opportunity to try out the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun lotion from VICHY. I found that the product didn’t leave me with a sticky feeling thanks to its non-sticky formula and just blended nicely into the skin. Which meant, that even though you may have put on some makeup before and then you would apply this product after – it wouldn’t leave you all patchy and white! It blends ever so nicely into the skin, even with makeup on!
A little information about the product –
Like I said it has SPF50 and protects us from UVA and UVB rays. It has a ‘sensorial texture’ which helps in the product being gentler and more effective on the skin. Also. this lotion may be applied on any skin type including sensitive skin. It is Paraben free and Hypoallergenic.
It includes Vichy Mineralising Water, which is a water-resistant formula that helps in keeping the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also protects the skin from becoming damaged by the sun’s rays.
It has a ‘lightweight texture’ that helps the skin in absorbing it without leaving a ‘greasy residue.’ This products also entails to be an Anti-Sand lotion as it has an ‘ultra-dry finish’ which helps the skin to easily brush sand off.
How to apply –
Simply apply this before being exposed to the sun. And then keep reapplying it frequently to maintain protection from the sun especially after swimming.
My thoughts –
When using this product I found that it worked well with my skin. Like I said the product is easy to rub into the skin and it barely shows on the skin except for a little glimmer.
What I loved the most about the product was it’s unique Sun Lotion scent. As most sun creams have that common scent. However, this one had a lovely fresh scent to it.
When applying it to the skin it feels refreshing and hydrating. I also tried it at a sandy beach and was impressed by how little bits of sand stuck onto the skin. Therefore, this is a perfect product for those who DISLIKE any sand that gets stuck all over their bodies!
It protected me from the sun’s rays and didn’t leave me with that sticky-icky feeling! It has become my new BEST FRIEND for the beach!
