Essential items before voyaging around Asia for 4 months apart from Passport and Cashcard was what skincare and make up I was going to take with me. Last year, whilst living abroad for 6 months, I experienced seriously bad skin on my face. Everyone put it down to sunscreen and sweat, a sexy combination I think you’ll agree, and probably the layers of anti-spot, anti-blemish, anti-skin left products I was slapping on bi-hourly, not to mention all the cover up and concealer.
So for this trip I invested my trust into an old friend. Garnier Ambre Solaire. More specifically Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Cream Sun Protection High SPF 50. Two months in, daily application, absolute winner!
- BB Cream so it covers and aids blemishes for an even skin tone
- Tinted so even pre tan it gives a sun kissed glow (also matches skin tone post tan)
- SPF 50 the correct coverage and protection for our delicate facial skin
- Vitamin E enriched always a bonus!
My favourite bits are that its light to wear and gives a Highbeam-glow to enhance those lovely facial features. It’ been perfect for day to day wear and evenings out. If you’re in constant midday heat, my advice would be to re-apply on the nose and forehead where those pesky UV rays hit us hardest. My spots have been non-existent and if I get a blemish its invisible to everyone else. Nothing worse than being in the sun with layers of cover-up on!
So ladies if natural beach beauty is your look this summer, invest!
Team it up with a Nivea Sun Protect SPF 30 lip salve for moisturised and kissable lips (no one likes cracked peckers!) and Lee Stafford Salt Spray for a sassy, beach babe barnet fair.
If you’re still not sold, trust me, it’s the BBest. Happy sunning x
