I use sunscreen every day. I apply it in the morning after brushing my teeth. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, or if I am staying at home that day. Always use sunscreen.
I have reviewed another sunblock from The Body Shop on this blog. I alternate using facial creams that contain different ingredients. My favorites are: Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera.
Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant rich in collagen and elastin. Protects skin from free radicals, radiation, pollution, excessive cold or heat and cigarette smoke. This type of vitamin is ideal for anyone who is exposed to sun and near windows for long.
The Vitamin E Moisture Lotion SPF 15 from The Body Shop, comes in a pink squeezable tube with 50 ml of product.
In the lid, a spout to control the quantity of product to be used.
The description according to the website of The Body Shop:
“This light moisturising lotion with SPF 15 hydrates and protects the skin. Light and non-greasy with wheat germ oil for extra conditioning.”
The packaging says it is a all-in-one product (sunscreen and facial moisturizer) and is recommended for all skin types.
The texture is very light, almost an aerated mousse. The scent is floral and I do not like it much, but it is no longer noticeable after a few minutes on the skin.
The skin is left moisturized, soft and protected.
It costs US$ 18.50 at The Body Shop.
