Summer is fast approaching in the UK and I am always on the lookout for a daily SPF that I can use under my foundation without the fear of looking like I have been caught up in a mudslide by 3pm. I have tried some lovely facial sun screens both drugstore and high end, but often find that my skin gets super greasy and my makeup quickly starts separating and moving around. I have to admit that because of this I have often skipped SPF altogether which considering how dedicated I am to the rest of my skincare routine seems really counter productive! To find a solution, I did a bit of research online and decided to purchase The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi Protection Essence and I am so pleased that I did.
I apply the essence after cleansing and serums in place of my moisturiser and find this works perfectly for me. I imagine if you have drier skin you would want to use it after your usual moisturising step. The extremely lightweight, milky liquid absorbs almost immediately and leaves my skin feeling smooth and primed without any shine or white cast. My foundation applies beautifully and I haven't had any issues with separation or makeup meltdown. I love knowing that I'm protecting my skin from both UVA & UVB on a daily basis and will definitely be repurchasing.
Now all I need is some sunshine!
