La Roche Posay Suncream

Trust me to start an intense skincare regime programme, which requires the least contact with sunlight as possible when it is Britain's hottest summer in 50 years. There is no denying that the sun most days has been a pleasant surprise, but some days it has been very overwhelming.

A few weekends ago, I went to a festival in London and it was over 30 degrees and I was sweltering. Thankfully, I had packed my trusty La Roche-Posay Anthelios fresh mist sun spray. Firstly, this has an spf 50 which is what my dermatologist has told me to wear. This has a very light mist spray which is super easy and convenient to apply. I thought this would have a much thicker consistency which is what I hate about sun cream. I hate the feeling of having heavy sun cream sat on top of my skin, and that is why I love this so much. It is a simple spray which has a thin consistency due to the added ingredient of thermal spring water. It feels like it is just simply air adding coolness to the skin, which is also refreshing and adds some hydration which is great for a very hot and sweltering day.

I was initially worried that as I was needing an spf 50 on my face it was going to cause breakouts. So far with this spray it has not caused any particular problems to my skin. It is suitable for fair, sun-sensitive skin. I was happy to see that it contains a broad spectrum of skin protection and protects again both UVA and UVB. I was intrigued to read that due to its fast drying properties it can be worn on top of makeup which is great as usually sun cream would come as my first layer before any makeup application.
